Many have said that there can never be a "best game ever" which can be very true. But look at how these games have shaped the gaming world. For example, Doom can be looked upon as the best game ever because it brought upon possibly the highest genre for games: FPS. Half-Life was one of the most revolutionary games out there. It brought so much to the FPS genre because it wasn't just a game where you ran around and shot people. It was said that in Half-Life "you have a reason to shoot things". Games did not have such an integrated story line as Half-Life, along with it compelling game play. Not too many games had puzzles with all the shooting included. And there are many other old games out there that can be looked upon in similar ways. Pong is looked at as the game that started it all. Battlefield brought a perfect arcade and team based type of gameplay to the multiplayer genre. Elder Scrolls brought us incredibly massive worlds with almost no end. These games are normally looked at as something that did more than just bring you a good expieriance of sweet graphics, sound, gameplay, and story. They brought on all the games that we see today. So yes, we can still agree that there is and never will be a "greatest computer (or console) game ever." But what about the game that brought all the games we see today? In my view, if I have to choose, Half-Life. But really, there is no real "best computer game ever." Especially with the whole Half-Life\ Halo conflict, that will never end. :p
well its near impossible to find THE perfect PC game, but if i look back... hmm... id say Ulima III or VII, damn both of those were good, or even Ultima VI christ there are way too many good PC games, but Ultima has got a special place in my heart, so im leaning towards Ultima VII
As said before there is no best game. No 2 people can decide the same fav game. Well not strangers anyway
RtCW, or Medal of Honor.
Either Sim City 3000 Unlimited or Freelancer. I have yet to find anything as good as these 2 games on consoles.
Freelancer is simply massive. Over 60 systems with hundreds of bases and missions. The story is excellent. There is a ton to explore and buy/sell.
Sim City 3000 got the city simulator right. It is fun while still being challenging. The music is great, and maxis' humor is found thoughout the game.
I personnaly like the Total War games.
