Does the Infinity Engine count as one game? I can't decide between Planescape: Torment and Baldur's Gate II. But Monkey Island 2 is also very very good. Oh, and System Shock 2. I play through all those games at least once a year. Hmmmmmm... I think I'll go with Monkey Island 2 because it's also the first game I've ever played.

You have to choose one game.
Not really in order from all time favorite, but top 3 are my top 3 games ever. Everything under that is random.
I dunno. It could be Golden Sun: The Lost Age, It could be Fallout 3, it could be Resident Evil 4, or it could be a number of other games on my favorite games list. I don't know if I can choose just one. By the way, the new list function is active : )
|1. Golden Sun: The Lost Age|
|2. Fallout 3|
|3. Resident Evil 4|
|4. The World Ends With You|
|5. Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney - Trials and Tribulations|
|6. Metroid Prime|
|7. Tales of Symphonia|
|9. Super Metroid|
|10. Castlevania: Order of Ecclesia|

5. Vampire The Masquerade: Bloodlines. A rather cultish but great rpg.
4. Seven Kingdoms II. What an amazing RTS.
3. Spartan: Total Warrior. Weird that anyone would mention such a lackluster title, but I really think it's the best action game out there.
2. Knytt. A free downloadable. The most atmospheric game I have ever played. I would have given it #1 if not for...
1. Persona 4. Sure, the rpg stuff is pretty generic. But the characters... they're like real people. Playing the game interacting with them made me feel alive. Chie's very much like my high school crush, by the way ;)
Tetris, I will play it whether I am feeling good, bad or indifferent. Each time I pickup that game - I will spend at least half an hour on it, most times more.
The graphics are perfect because they do not distract from the game but serve to focus you on the task.
Sound is hypnotising and never gets old even though is is repetative, still does not get boring.
Gameplay is not varied but is always challenging. Tetris gets you hooked within a few minutes of starting a game, no other game has that addictive power. You always want that next line, to get to the next level and experience the next adrenaline rush. If you reach the top level - you want to see how long you can cope with pace. If you are good - you start to set challenges for yourself by seeing how high you can build your stack and reduce it by getting lines before your are conquered by the pace. No other game can give you that sense of satisfaction.
Tetris - leaves you feeling good whether you are good or bad at it because when you play the game - you are focused one task. The hypnotic music and the steady moving blocks makes you want to put everything into the game therefore when you run our of lives - you have a huge sense of accomplishment regardless of your final score. After a short rest and the feeling returning to your fingers - you will be hitching for more.
