    What is your favorite computer/video game?

    I'd be curious to know what everyone's favorite computer game is and why. I'll start:

    Mine is Half Life 2. Why? Half Life 2 has a fantastic story. It has suspense, action, puzzles to solve, and a fun group of bad guys. I don't know how many times I've played it over the years but I never tire of it. Don't get me wrong, I don't play it constantly. Maybe once a year or so I'll run through it along with the sequels. Even though I always know what's coming, the suspense gets me. I definitely got my money's worth.

    What is yours?

    That's a difficult question.

    I'd say Age of Empires II (and Anno 1602 [aka 1602 A.D.] a runner up).

    Why?? I like RTSes, I guess...

    P.S.: both playable with Wine.

    hard to say. i haven't played HL2 yet. only 1st part. single and in coop.

    otherwise i liked a few. and few have a special place (now these are only PC ones): Spear of destiny, Doom2, X-com:Terror from the deep, Terra Nova, Half life (and it's mods), Ultima Underworld and it's tribute Arx Fatalis, Morrowind, Civilization. Lately i've been discovering a few newer interesting ones such as Hearts of Iron and Rome Total War. I don't have much time to play.

    to name only one would be difficult i would probably be choosing between Morrowind and X-Com.

    If "time served" is any indication of my favorite game I think it would be a close race between "Halo 2" and the old "StarCraft." The last time I was on Bungie's website I could still see that I had nearly 25,000 kills on H2's multiplayer! As for SC, I still have the game and I still do play it every so often.

    I grew up in a household that had plenty of consoles, but never any computers so I do tend to favor a box next to the TV....

    I loved Hearts of Iron. It's especially fun to play with a bunch of friends, if you can talk some people into lan-ing with you.

    I lately play a lot of league of legends, xcom enemy unknown, Faster than Light, and company of heroes. Unfortunately Company of Heroes 2 won't run on Linux quite yet. At least I haven't been able to get it to.

    I have many favorite games and the list grows longer each year.
    But I'd say RIGHT NOW, my favorite game is League of Legends (which unfortunately doesn't run natively in Linux).

    Agreed.

    For me, as I've grown, gaming has always played a major part of my life. Baldur's Gate 2, Morrowind, then Battlefield Modern Warfare, Minecraft, Skyrim, and now Dungeons of Dreadmor.

    Too many genres, too many years, to name just one. Behold my misspent youth:

    Squad combat: Syndicate
    Platformer: Super Metroid
    Flight sim: TIE Fighter
    Hack and slash: Jedi Knight 2: Jedi Outcast
    First person shooter: Counter Strike
    Real time strategy: Age of Empires II
    Turn based strategy: Sid Meier's Alpha Centauri
    Role playing game: Diablo 2: Lord of Destruction
    Bullet hell: Starfox 64
    Fighting: Super Smash Brothers: Melee
    Racing: Mario Kart: Double Dash
    Adventure: Minecraft
    Massively multiplayer: EVE
    Windows crossed the line first.
    It squeezed me, it hammered me to the point of desperation.
    And in my desperation I turned to an OS I didn't fully understand.
    With respect, sir, perhaps this is an OS that *you* don't fully understand.
