    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.

    Re: What is your favorite computer game?

    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 liked Need for Speed Porsche, and Elder Scrolls Morrowind. These days under Linux I like to run Flightgear now and then. Not a big game player overall.

    Syndicate (The original, not syndicate wars). None of these FPS games. It got boring after Wolfenstien 3d. The original populous was good, I wish someone would remake it without screwing it up. Oh and Red Alert 1. Starcraft is pretty good, but the AI sucks when it runs out of minerals.

    My favorite PC game are Tom Clancy's Hawx part 1 & part 2.

    Both the games are based on fighter jets. You complete a mission which unlocks the next mission.

    I have played part 1 in Wine. It played okay but I had to decrease the video quality a bit (not the resolution).

    Soldier of Fortune2.

    Still one of the best FPS games ever made.
    Play the multiplayer 3 to 4 times each week on an American server which still has 20 players regularly.
    The best thing about SOF2 is low pingers don't have an advantage because
    the game engine determines who would have won if pings were equal.
    Pretty important when your pinging 300.
