What other favorites do UQM fans have?
« on: January 07, 2003, 04:20:37 am »

Hi all,

As a long-time player of SC2 and UQM, I must say that this is one of my top three favorite games of all time. The others are Final Fantasy VII and the original Metroid for the NES.

What other favorites do you all have?

Thanks,

Well, the one thing that drew me to get UQM and become subseqently enraptured with it was my nostalgic love of the Star Flight games.  Like UQM in slow motion;)

I dig mainly RTS and RPGs.  The last game that really grabbed my attention was Baldur's Gate II.

All the games I play and frequently return to:

Madden NFL 2002 - My current "project".
Half-Life (and all the levels/add-ons I've bought and downloaded)
NFL Blitz 2000
Raiden II - it's a old school arcade type game, they don't do those often enough anymore
MotoRacer/MotoRacer 2 - kinda satisfies the driving game type genre.
Star Control 2 (duh!)

Occasionally I'll pull out my old NES and play the original Legend of Zelda and Mike Tyson's Punchout - those games are still pretty fun to me for a lot of reasons.

UQM (Of course)
Quest for Glory 1-5 (don't play it any more, but it's very fun the first few times through the series)
Caesar 3 (and hopefully the other ancient citybuilders; haven't tried 'em yet)
Civilization 3
X-Wing Alliance

Nethack
Starcraft (not so much after I beat the game... against humans I suck and don't care to get better)
Final Fantasy 1, 5, 6, Tactics
Metroid (1 and 3, but 1 was better)
Zelda (1, 2, and 3 equally, even if 3 was a little too linear)

I really liked the ideas behind Ambrosia Software's Ares. However, the controls were a little too limited. What I'd really love is a game LIKE that, but with smoother control and the Star Control ships. Yeah, it would take rewriting the engine and AI to account for more than two ships per side... but it WOULD be cool, wouldn't it? Aah... heaven....

I see several people have mentioned Metroid games.  Those are some of my favorites too.  I'm playing Metroid Fusion on the Game Boy Advance right now.  Its is awesome as anything, well worth the price of the Game Boy Advance Wink

I think this is CURRENT favorite games.
Thanks to emulation, I don't need to have a maze of wires connecting a bunch of systems to a TV, so it's just as easy for me to play Zelda 1 as it is to play Starcraft. So I do. You can tell it's not the old favorites by the fact that I don't have any atari games in the list (I know, there ARE atari emulators).

MOO [Master of Orion for those lost souls who *gasp* don't know](on teh PC 'course)
Final Fantasy VII (PC or PS, don't matter)
SC1 (Genesis console only, baby!)["First Twelve Megabit Game!"]

I also liked SFII, but I only liked the Mac version for some reason.

Oh, and somebody mentioned Ambrosia Software.....Man I really loved Escape Velocity.

ADOM is a big one lately, and I tend to prefer it to Nethack, though I've never finished it.  (Damn hard!)

I think TIE Fighter was also one of the best games ever made, and I'm a big SSB: Melee fan too.  I'm also playing A Link To The Past on my GBA, and I really want to get Advance Wars.
