    For me it's Warcraft III, the RTS game.

    Oh gosh!
    I can't say what's my favourite game.... I would say half life, expecially HL2 because it inspired me to study (and code) physics...
    but in the last months I got becoming a MUGEN nerd.....

    oh yeah, Super Mario got a big place in my heart..
    but F-Zero (SNES) is great too...

    And sometimes I like to play The Punisher with my bro.

    Super Smash Brothers. Red Alert 2. Warcraft III. F-Zero. Centipede.

    My friends and I are so good at super smash brothers, it's ridiculous. We play drinking games with it until we start sucking at it. Jigglypuff is my best character.

    Really into FPS games at the moment of the 'World War II' genre ... don't know, ever since Return to Castle Wolfenstein, I've developed a thing for the genre.

    Call of Duty, Call of Duty 2 are great - Sniper Elite is fantastic (you get to snipe and follow the bullet as it leaves your gun and lodges itself in the target.)

    Splinter Cell series was great, but it got a bit boring after a while ... so much time spent NOT shooting stuff! lol

    BUT, I have to say, Mafia is proabably one of the best games I've played in a WHILE. GTA series was ok, but became a bit repetative after a while ... haven't played San Andreas yet.

    Re: Gaming Thread

    As of right now, my all time favorite game is Legend Of Zelda: Ocarina of Time(Nintendo 64). I played through that game so many times and its still fun.

    The other Zeldas were great too, I remember playing the first one for NES, I was really really young when I played that.

    Right now, I'm playing multiplayer games on the PC. Counter Strike: Source is pretty good, the graphics of the HL2 engine are killer. But Day Of Defeat: Source is still a ton better than CS:S, DoD:S is a WWII run and gun game, but its so fun, I mean you get to actually punch people in it, I always said that it would be cool if you could punch people when I was playing the first DoD and then Source came out and you could, but they got rid of my rifle butt melee attack, on the server I played DoD in, the last time I checked I had well over 800 of the rifle melee attacks(the person in 2nd place on the ranks for it was like < 200 or something ). Now in Source I use the rocket(bazooka on U.S. and Panzerschreck on Wehrmact(its now called that instead of Axis)) thats the funnest weapon ever.

    I've also been playing Unreal Tournament 2004 because I'm on a mod team for it(well we're waiting until UT2007 comes out), the UE3 engine looks absolutely rediculous.

    GTA is always fun, San Andreas was great because there were a ton of things to do

    My older brother and I would make fun of my little brother or our friends telling them we can beat them with Jigglypuff. (which we could)

    For me it's Warcraft III, the RTS game.
    I played Warcraft III very little. It didn't feel nearly as good as similar RTS games like Ceaser or AGE of Empires. PLus I was stuck on Starcraft, which is great.

    I can't say what's my favourite game.... I would say half life,
    I remember when I thought that would suck (I only bought it becuase I had no new game to play). Boy was I surprised, that game was great... and HL2 that is great

    My favorite games are Gothic 1 and Gothic 2, if anyone has heard of them. But Gothic 3 doesn't do enough to earn it's position in my list of favorite games. I hope the forth one will do better. Right now I'm waiting and hoping for Hellgate London. This game has a lot of potential.
