I'll never forget the first time I played Stone Keep, and had several little green guys with swords come after me. What a rush. Of course, that game doesn't compare to anything out today (plus it had a faerie level?!). I found Deus Ex to be very compelling. A game I still find myself playing occasionally is Dungeon Keeper II. he he.
The best game ever IMHO? Little Big Adventure, followed by Little Big adventure 2! LBA just has the best engine ever: even now the graphics aren't ugly, and all the eastereggs made me finish the game 20 times now(LBA2 18 times ) I think you should make a top 5 or something, so here I go: 1. LBA(2) 2. Tribes 3. Vampire TMR 4. TaK (Total Annihilation Kingdoms) 5. Myth I and II
Diablo I(NO, not 2! That game just suckz: to easy, and very boring!) should be number 6. Also HalfLife should be added as number 7, but what the heck, I said a top 5
Best game ever: System Shock 1 on the PC (cdrom edition with voice acting).
Favorite game (not the same thing): Double Dribble on the Nintendo. Isn't that strange? I don't even like basketball.
err.. at the risk of massive ridicule.. Dune II on the Amiga blew me away.. TINY little units crawling slowly across a TV screen, but it kept me up until 4 am far too often..
and TA: Kingdoms..despite the poor coding (and if u know about coding, look at the Photoshop code mess sometime), TAK gave FANTASTIC fun, complexity, and challenge..
my game playing history. Sheesh.

This game is an absolute blast to play online. Unfortunately, someone stole my copy.
Anyone remember how fun Defender, Missle Command and Tempest were? I bought the Atari Jaguar mid-late 90s because they had remade these games. Tempest2000 and Defender2000 were especially furious and frantically fun.
PC: Doom, Counter-Strike, Red Alert 2, Baldur's Gate II
Playstation: Metal Gear Solid, Tony Hawk 1 & 2, Final Fantasy VII
SEGA: Mortal Kombat, Earthworm Jim, X-MEN
Nintendo: Super Mario Brothers, Contra, Metal Gear
Metal Gear Solid for PS One.
Super Bomberman for Super NES. (multiplayer)
The Sims (really, don't knock it till you've tried it)
STARCRAFT!!!!! (don't get me started!)
Tekken Tag Tournament for PS2 (probably best fighter)
AND... Castlevania-Symphony of the Night for PS One
All of these games are the kind that steal your life away and you don't realize it until you look at your watch. Gameplay over everything else-just truly engrossing and/or addictive as hell.
How could anyone who is serious diss these games? Can't wait for Metal G. 2.

The best game ever for PC is LIERO!!!!! If you disagree I will be forced to unleash the gauss gun... What's that you got a Nuke don't even attempt to scare me with that, My Ninja Rope Skillz will easily get me out of that one! *BANG* HA! YOU BE DEAD!!!!!

Seriously though it's one sickass game only 2 players though cause the cpu is so dumb.
