There was actually a sense of community too, as the following was relatively small by todays standards - it was all mIRC IRC & forums

You know thinking about games I've played a lot online I'd probably have to add Microsoft's Freelancer to my list, that's a game that really deserved a sequel I have some great memorys from playing online and some of the dogfighting was truely epic.

I really hope one day Galaxy on Fire or something else can capture it's essence.

I don't mean to sound bitter, cold, or cruel, but I am, so that's how it comes out

+1 for Galaxy Of Fire MMO

I actually bought a Dreamcast to play PSO with a mate, perhaps that should be on high on my list also - tho the combat was caca it was pretty fun being in lobbies, seeing the text bubbles appear usually with random abuse or love =]

I kind of like MW2 on xbox 360. Has anyone ever heard of Midnight Club? It sounds kinda bad, but it is actually a free world where you drive a car and is made by Rockstar Games.


EDIT: I do not own Battlefield 3, MW3, Gears of War 3, Madden 2012, or basically any new game.

2ND EDIT: I would probably like Grand Theft Auto, but I can't get it. At least I can understand why though.

Favorite games:

League of Evil 2, Rocket Bits, Super Crate Box, Retro Racing, INC, Choco Run, Swordigo.

I probably spent more time playing that RTS than every other game I've played in the past decade combined. Hundreds of hours. Then, Sierra shut down the multiplayer servers about four years ago.

Not going to bother including any online MMORPGs here since I don't really think they deserve it, but RuneScape and MapleStory were both pretty influential games in my life at one point, lol.

I have a neighbor who (at least he used to) play's MapleStory 3-5 hrs a day. He tried to get me into it, but I found it dumb, lame, and repetitive. I seriously played it for about 5-7min before the game lost it's charm.

Super Mario RPG, Final Fantasy VI, Knights of the old Republic, the Fallout and Elder Scrolls series... With those games I could be left out on a desert island (with electricity and some comforts I hope) and never get bored...

Edit: Gosh I almost forgot Final Fantasy VIII, loved Squall to death when I was younger and the gunblades were the epitome of cool for me back then...

There's a lesser-known game made by Squaresoft called Einhander for the PSX which was a rare gem of a shooter. 15 years later, I could pop it in and still enjoy it.
