    Ah, I'm not allowed to buy games That said, I think my game library has doubled since I imposed that rule on myself

    Re: What are your top 5 games list?

    On the PC?
    Quake 3
    Far Cry
    Crysis
    BF2
    Red Alert 2

    Older? Would have to include the original Doom, then vintage stuff like Ikari Warriors, Tankbusters, Aliens and similar CPC games

    And... spot when I stopped buying games

    Ah yes, "... the fusion of XCOM and Fallout we all want.".

    Except I don't remember ever wanting a fusion of XCOM and Fallout, personally...

    Didn't realise Gollop was involved though. Might keep a closer eye on it now...

    Yeah, it surprised me -especially with it not bearing the X-COM/UFO name (sold the rights?). Xenonauts 2 is this year also. The first one was quite close to the original X-COM (in a good way), but limited by a terrible engine.

    Re: What are your top 5 games list?

    I can't really say as my taste can change from week to week, however in the spirit of things and in no particular order :

    Last Ninja Trilogy (one long story across the 3 games)
    Destiny 1&2
    Tron 2.0
    Borderlands 2
    Thief 1&2

    Re: What are your top 5 games list?

    Very difficult! I think for me, it would be better to list top 5 per platform. I could list 5 great games from Atari 2600, Amiga, PS1, PC etc.
    Anyway let's stick with PC:

    Unreal Tournament
    Aliens vs Predator II
    Star Trek Voyager: Elite Force
    TitanFall
    Elite: Dangerous

    Re: What are your top 5 games list?

    Play mostly on Xbox now, but sticking with pc, I'd say...
    1. Civilization
    2. StarCraft
    3. Skyrim
    4. Mechcommander
    5. Half-life

    Yeah, as you can tell my pc days are long past - when I say Civ, I do mean the original (and best).
