Best Computer Games?

well for those games junkies

in my eyes:

simulation games- sim city- OH SHIT! you cant believe hot addictive this game is. you can lose days, not hours, just playing this game
honorary (or is it dishonorary?) mention- the sims, this game has that same ability as the sims to suck in your soul into the computer leaving to the false belief that the computer game is your real life

War Games? - WarCraft or Command and Conquer, both are pretty good.

First Person Shooters- Doom, Quake, Wolfenstein, Duke Nukem 3d. Wolfenstein has come in with a sequel many years later

Role Playing Games- Diablo, Commandos

Puzzle Solving Games- Sam and Max, Day Of the Tentacle, Monkey Island, Grim Fandango. now these games are darn hard, but nothing better than that sensation when you solve a puzzle

sports- international superstar soccer, soccer games and especially soccer has been a suspect genre. but this is pretty close to the real thing. also EA has forgotten what the dynamics of their sporting games and they make games for the sake of promising to make a better one next year

I don't play a lot of comp. games but I love MYST, RIVEN and MYST III EXILE. Exile wasn't all great, but ok. RIVEN kicks arse!

Quake III. Love it, loved all the Quakes, still play occasionally but the game is intended for online play and quite frankly, I suck the big one when playing online.

Also liked Alice which was incredible eye candy with a twisted story line and creepy soundtrack. Also liked that Clive Barker game, Undying. Ah... almost forgot Max Payne!

I'm still waiting for my husband's novelty to wear off with Return to Castle Wolfenstein. I can't wait to give that a whirl. What better way to blow off steam than to frag the mean ol nazi bad guys?

But the biggie I'm waiting for is Doom 3, although with those slick graphics I'll probably need a new box just to play it.

SimCity and the Sims I can play for hooooooooours.
Anyone remember Chip's Challenge, it used to be included with Windows 98 or something. When I was in high school I was OBSESSED with that game. Now it just seems silly

I have a horrible addiction to Sensible's Sensible World Of Soccer 96/97. I highly recommend it. There are updates and stuff but I still find it fun to play with the original teams and players. Excellent game, you can download it from some sites I won't mention. Also recommend Championship Manager, although I suck. Hmm...Warcraft III is fun, although I haven't played for a while. And I had an emulated version of a great SNES RPG called 'Seiken Densetsu 3' or 'Secret Of Mana 2' that was fun, fun, fun. Any LucasArts adventure game, especially Monkey Island, Indiana Jones and the Fate Of Atlantis, Sam & Max and Day Of The Tentacle...all great, humorous, and it was always fun looking for things like stormtrooper helmets.
