I can't help it. I have to nominate:

Where in the World is Carmen Santiago?

Then there was this other game that was the Australian equivalent of Oregon Trail - you trekked through the Blue Mountains in a textish sort of game. Then there was this "Island" game where you could find a milkbar on a desert island

Hey, I was FORCED in year 8 in 1988 to play all of the above games! We had them in year 8 English as a school "learning supplement and extension curriculum tool"

Pfft! So many mistakes! The top 8 best games of all time, in no particular order are clearly:
Wing Commander 1
Wing Commander 2
Wing Commander 3
Wing Commander 4
Wing Commander Privateer
Wing Commander Armada
Wing Commander Academy
Wing Commander Prophecy

EDIT: In seriousness, I could never pick a single game as my favourite. Far too many that delight and entrance me to consider picking a single game thats above the rest.

I've always loved Super Mario All Stars on the SNES. Those four 8 bit Mario games given a 16 bit update was perfection and I still play them today.

I would say Everquest - Everything from the Kunark expansion through to the release of mercenaries was the highlight of my gaming history.

Really tough, but if I were to say which game grabbed my the most and really devoured my life for a time. Off the top of my head I was say

1) Bard's Tale
2) Intellivision Football
3) Dark Ages of Camelot

it is tough to quantify what is the best, I will say probably the game I played the most however was Intellivision Football. There simply wasnt anything remotely close to it back in the day.
I would play til my thumbs bled. Remember those old side buttons on the Intellivision controller? Had to play with some pain back in the day

I agree with the OP! For their place and time, both titles were pretty amazing!

Honorable mention to Myst as well, the first game that really showcased the potential for thinking outside the box on the personal computer.

System Shock was the first shooter I really fell in love with, and Everquest on the MMO front.
So long as the paperwork's clean, you boys can do what you like out there.
