What's really crazy is that I used to have a Gex book
Same. I need to replay all three one of these days, and see how Dana Gould’s writing holds up.
Does anyone else remember the magazine that advertised the ill-fated N64DD with promotional art of Gex? Or when Crystal Dynamics stopped using him as their mascot around 2000?
UFO - enemy unnkown (or XCOM - ufo defence) from 1994
For me the all time best video game.
Great scenario, lots of details (if you care enough to read all the info), good amount of complexity and all the stuff that makes a game good.
The 2012 version is pretty good as well and very intense. But it has a completely different vibe to it.
other games I loved to play:
- Command and conquer (the earlier games of the series)
- Diablo 1 and 2
- Silent hunter 1 (rather unknown submarine simulation)
- Wing Commander 3
Gotta be MGS3.
One of my all time favorite series is Fallout, but i've only played 3, New Vegas and 4. I've probably played Fallout 4 more than any other game I've ever had. But currently playing Legend of Zelda Breath of the Wild on the Nintendo Switch... stupid fun game, I would've bought the switch just for this game alone.
^^^These are awesome too.
Some other games I've wasted entirely too mush time of my life playing:
The whole Mega Man series
Gran Turismo 3-4-5-6
Red Dead Redemption
The Last of US
ATV Off Road Fury 2 (whichever one has the arena with a big loop and ramps and crap...)
If one wanted/took the "correct" routes throughout 2/3 you can save both races and have them both added to your "War Readiness". You could also have both the Krogans and Salarians if choices were made in 1 and 3.
Taking Legion to the Quarian fleet in 2 is worth letting your crew get liquefied.
So, the Mass Effect series hits my list.
Main modern game I'm playing is Warframe. Can't get enough of it.
X-Com, the original. The reboot is great and all, but doesn't really hold a torch to everything going on in the original.
Master of Orion 2. Countless hours logged into this.
Master of Magic. There still hasn't been a fantasy 4X game that comes *close* to this 1995 game. Some recent mods (Caster of Magic) have breathed some crazy life into it as well.
Strife. The first shooter to incorporate RPG elements into it. The Veteran Edition is worth the cash on Steam, but it shows its age.
Wing Commander 3. I really wish with the reboot culture we have currently that someone would reboot this series. Or continue after 5.
Heroes of Might and Magic 2. I never got 3 until decades after it was released so it never clicked with me. I don't think any of them really had quite the same magic as 2 though. And what has happened to them since Ubisoft acquired the IP is as painful as what has happened to the Hellraiser movie franchise. I also love 4 though and that is akin to blasphemy to some.
Abe's Odyssey was an absolutely brilliant game. It even won a Nobel prize. If you're never experienced it, go get it.
Deus Ex. The only problem one can level against this game is that if anything it is too big. I've seen recommendations to basically split it into two games and play the parts of going to Hong Kong as the sequel. Which is fair because the actual sequel (Invisible War) is one of the worst pieces of dog shit I've tried to play.
Diablo 1. 2 would probably be here but I had a shitty computer and wouldn't have been able to run it so I just played 1 for like 15 years.
Probably too many to mention but top listers:
Zelda Ocarina Of Time
Seiken Densetsu 3
Honorable mention: MediEvil for PS1
In particular order:
1st place: tie between:
Metal gear solid - snake eater
Walking dead tell tale series
2nd place: tie between:
Ocarina of time
Shadows of the colosses
Kingdom hearts 1
I used to play way too much video games as a kid... So the list would be quite long... I'll just toss a few out there:
Crash Bandicoot 1-3 + CTR + Crash Bash (PS1)
Zelda: A link to the Past (SNES), Ocarina of Time, Majoras Mask (N64)
Super Mario 1-3+World (SNES), Super Mario 64

SSX Tricky (PS2)
Resident Evil 1-3 (PS1), Code Veronica X (PS2)
Colin Mcrae Rally 2 (PC)
Mass Effect 1-2 (Xbox 360) - ME3 would probably also be on the list but I just never got to it
NHL 15-17 (Xbox 360+Xbox One)
Legacy of Kain - Soul Reaver (PC)
... and there must've been a shitload more that I just don't recall right now. I added a few now that I remembered
... ooh! reading other comments, I totally remember Medievil! I only played the demo though, but I really liked it. I also played the Gex ETG demo and liked that too, but not quite as much.
These days I only play video games with the kids so the list right now is ... :
Lego City: Undercover (Xbox One)
Super Lucky's Tale (Xbox One)
Unravel (Xbox One)
+ whatever racing games you happen to get for free with Xbox Live Gold...
Glad I'm not the only one who can't pick just one.
In no particular order:
Mass Effect (all of them)
Warcraft 3: The Frozen Throne
Medieval 2: Total War
Jak & Daxter (the whole trilogy)
Devil May Cry 3
The Last of Us
Armored Core 4 Answer (though I loved the series on PS2)
All time favorites :
Dragon Age Origins, KOTOR, Tomb Raider (2014), Betrayal at Krondor
Currently playing : PUBG
World of Warcraft
Silent Hill 2, probably.
I don't play games much anymore, but sometimes I'd like to go through that one again.
Elder Scrolls: Skyrim
I still play it regularly after all these years, it's just so immersive unlike anything else I had played before or after. I love the music too, I always play the soundtrack album in my car and even when I'm working.
It's definitely time for the next ES chapter now.
I tried to get into Skyrim a while ago and.... I dunno, I just wasn't hooked. It felt like I was dropped into a world without purpose, which I think I could see the appeal of, in the right frame of mind. But with the kind of backlog of games I've got, I don't really want to meander around and just do whatever. I want goals. I want a sense that there will be an end to the game and I can move on to something else.
"dropped into a world without a purpose" is sort of the Bethesda standard. There IS a main quest but most of the fun to be had is exploring and discovering hidden secrets and things in the world.
It's not really my preferred style of game, tbh, though I've played a lot of elder scrolls and fallout games. I'd rather go for something with a tight plot and good characters (like older bioware stuff).
Not really into games as much the last several years, but the original Bioshock is still my all time favorite game.
