My self and my current bf3 squad mates have this discussion all the time and tbh we always say its the game that you remember having the most fun on because of the people your playing with at the time , although I sank 4 years into world of Warcraft I still say that unreal tournament was my fave and then probably an lesser unknown coop/mp fps called Viet cong ,
Return to castle wolfenstein and the enemy territory add on, still play today the E.T add on because its a free game.
enjoyed the sniper elite games and now fighting my way through sniper elite nazi zombie army, great for mindless gore lol
Totally. I remember playing online over my 36.6k modem against a pro player called "Black" and getting my arse well and truly kicked. Plus trying to get the OpenGL version working. Rocket Jumps FTW! It was a truly revolutionary playing style with the engine.
P.S. Bring back Dominik Diamond!
It's hard to pick just one but I would say Quake, Tomb Raider (Original), Half Life, Unreal Tournament. IF I was to actually sit and look back at where it all began there would probably be a few post Atari 2600 games in there too.
You can tell all the xbox/ps fan boys with all the more recent games, as I'm sure there will be a few posted, but it's not a true testament to the gaming world and it's origins imho. It's like saying Zack Effron is the best actor ever when his career has been little more than a few years.
+1 OMG can't believe I forgot about Quake. I remember LAN games at lunchtime with that beauty. I guess Doom and DoomII were biggies for me as well but clan gaming on MOHAA et al will always be my fondest memories
I used to love the Red Alert games but the game I spent the most time playing was the original Championship Manager, I spent hours at a time playing that although mostly because it was so slow! You would finish a season and then have to wait for about an hour for new season to start! lol
