Oh, I forgot to mention the Commandos series. I've killed hours and hours with Commandos.

it depends on how you score the best....games to me that really shaped gaming we know.

super mario... cmon its mario.

street fighter 2... this game spawned an entire genre and it still going strong today. competition is strong.

counterstrike... game started out as a mod and then ignited fps online multiplayer to a whole new level.

warcraft 2... i think this was the game that sparked online multiplayer for most of the early gamers out there. back when battle.net didn't exist. this game brought us kali and gamespy and that in turned made game devs make online multiplayer pretty much a permanent thing in all games going forward.

final fantasy 7... ok when this sucker came out. it pushed that psx hardware to it's limits... came out on what...6 or 7 cd's?? and it pretty much put the playstation on the map.
i think this game alone was the sole reason most ppl bought a playstation during that time.

DOTA... again another game the create a genre. there would be no league of legends or other free MOBA's without this game that started out as a mod for wc3.

these games were what set the stage for the games our generation love to today. i think for myself diablo and starcraft were the games that got me hooked.
i'll never forget how badly i wanted to get a computer or the days i would play sick so i could stay home and run bgh with my buddies. heck even going to internet cafes after school for an hour with pals was a thing because of some of these games.

The thing that makes a game the greatest game is replay ability. So it has to be multiplayer.
Starcraft 1?

XCOM - UFO enemy unknown (the original).. if we're going to pick a category, this must hold the strategy crown

Counterstrike hands down. No other game comes even close for me.

But to be honest, we should have 2 categories, 1) Online and 2) Single Player Only.

The experiences in a SP game are finite, whereas multiplayer focused games have hundreds, or even thousands of hours of replayability. Its not a fair comparison.

I've played DOTA consistently for the past decade, so that is my pick for PC.

For consoles, it's Ocarina of Time. I've replayed it several times since I first beat it a decade back as well.

Brown ahead for Bure. Bure going in.. he scores! Pavel Bure has won it for the Vancouver Canucks! It's a triple overtime hat-trick for Vancouver!
