    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.

    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).

    Try the newer TW: Warhammer 2. It's been toned down loads but still loads of fun. That said, I still prefer the older strategic versions and don't like the direction the franchise has moved.

    I spent weeks with the very first Shogun.. I even attempted to read parts of TsunTsu's Art of War...but I got destroyed.

    over.. and over....

    Re: What are your top 5 games list?

    I enjoy open world games, so Skyrim, then WD2 then back to WD, then GTA V and now GTA IV(I also got GTA3 but it's unplayable I think). I think all have different elements that are good but WD and GTAV are probably my favourite escapism.

    I am interested to know how people think gaming affects their real life. I heard Moto GP riders keep their reaction times up by playing game, and I believe Football manager is used by teams. I sometimes wonder if gaming makes people more confident of achieving goals in real life, or makes reality more daunting.

    I did wake up the other morning and momentarily was thinking like a character I'd played as the night before.
