Best game of all time, bar none, is Diablo II. Played that for TEN YEARS. No other game comes even remotely CLOSE to that kind of longevity. Bubbles will back me up on that.

I currently play Titan Quest: Immortal Throne (although I'm apparently one of the DOZEN or so people who actually bought it...), Left4Dead 1 and 2 and, now, Battle Dex.

Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion is probably my all-time favorite. Put 160 hours into that one and it still has content to offer.

Also, I will never get sick of Metal Slug 3. I even spent $200 on the arcade cartridge back when I owned a Japanese sit-down Neo Geo cabinet. Worth every penny. One of the best games ever made.

Why is this no surprise.

Pretty much every game on the list was a favorite of mine back in the day. 7th Guest scared the bejesus out of me!

I'm looking for people to Diablo 2 with. Let's try and set up some cooperative game?

C'mon, anyone else?

Speaking of this, did you see Blizzard's awesome April Fool's news about Blackthorne 2 for iPhone?

I took that a step further and built a MAME cabinet. I've attached a picture. I have several of the Metal Slug series. Those and Gyruss are my faves. I WOULD say Tempest is my fave as it has ALWAYS been my fave, but my control board just won't play nice with my original Tempest cab spinner so it won't work well. The company who made the best spinner folded JUST before I was ready to buy one. Sadness... They can be found, but are ludicrously expensive, last time I looked.

Classic coin-ops are really great for me. Grew up on these. If I had all the quarters I've cycled through these things, I'd be retired in luxury by now...

Sorry, never reloaded it after my last OS rebuild, and I think Bubbles snatched my disks. After ten years, I had enough. Still the best game ever, though.
