    Im sorry, not quite old but my vote goes to Zelda: Ocarina of Time or Majora's Mask, both absolutely breathtaking games.

    Mass Effect rates a mention but its not old :)

    So hard to pick a best ever, but i must admit Mario kart on the SNES was pretty ground breaking and addictive for me- mode 7 was amazing. Actual real corners to go around rather than the usual "track bends in front of you"

    But that was such along time ago, so im going with a newish game in Bioshock. The story was totally enthralling. Spent most my time at work daydreaming about how it would unravel and it sure delivered. Actually my co-workers must have got sick of me at talking about the game all day long LOL. I could go on about bioshock forever, shame it had to end....

    Quickly mention perfect dark for N64. Spent alot of hours with this one.

    Where in the retro gaming thread I assume your asking for the best retro game ever if I'm right I would say Mario is the best game ever on how this game evolve from time to time. Really go crazy for Mario back then.

    DooM, no questions asked. Opened up a whole new world of both great 3D fps and network multiplayer.

    yeah DOOM is one of the greatest games I've played I remember playing DOOM when I was a kid I'm so scared to walk into a hallway expecting that a monster will show up there. :-D

    Hard to narrow down to one. Candidates would be

    Tie Fighter
    Dark Forces
    OpenGL Team Fortress
    WoW
    Tribes
    GTA3
    Total Annihilation

    All groundbreaking and held me playing for a long time.

    Doom was amazing! But no one game jumps out for me. I do have some great memories of Pirates on the 64. I loved that one. When it was released again a couple of years ago, it just didn't have the magic of the original.

    I also loved The Bards Tale III. Man, the hours I sunk into that one!!

    I couldn't choose between Elite and System Shock 2 even if you put a gun to my head. Deus Ex gets an honourable mention as well, along with some arcade classics like Defender, Gyruss and Space Invaders.

    I played a lot of Digger when I was younger. Simple but addictive game. Command & Conquer took up a lot of my time too.

    Definately Mario Cart, I can't count the hours spent in battle mode or time trial (fierce competition back then within my circle of friends)
    I still get all goey inside when I here the opening theme for Super Metroid.
    On PC Tie fighter ranks high, was a HUGE fan of Shogun: Total war, but the civilisation series beats allcomers, my no1 fav game of all time (1 through to 4)
