For me it'd have to be Team Fortress 2. Favorite multiplayer game ever! So much stuff to do, and it's free! What are yours, fellow Tamrielic Lore friends?

I am horrible at picking favorites, but I'll give it a try.... right now I think my favorite is Unreal Tournament 2004. Strangely enough, it is the exact opposite of a TES game. The game is completely unrealistic in every way and the "story" is just shameful. It is 100% about the gameplay experience in the tournament.

Very true! I love Unreal Tournament, because they are pretty much the opposite of TES, and sometimes, I just want to blow some guys up with a gun that should never exist, no questions asked

Splinter Cell (I love them all)
Tenchu Z

Battlefield 3 is not out yet, but I think it will be one of my favorites.

The Metal Gear Solid series.
Say what you will, but I've played all of them, all on the hardest difficulties and it was one of the most satisfying expierences ever.

Other then that?
Battlefield 2142. Nothing quite like using teamwork and skill to overwhelm an enemy titan. I am also looking forward to BF3.

When I first saw what BF3 had to offer, I was ecstatic! I love the BF franchise, and this looked like the epitome of all former BF games, but right now, I'm not as excited. Not because I am dissapointed, I'm just not as obsessed with it any more. Don't know why Very Happy However, right now, Skyrim (of course) and Arkham City are on my must play list. It sucks how Arkham City comes out just a week after Skyrim

Battlefield, Gears of War, Call of Duty, Fall out, The Legend of Zelda, WoW, and Borderlands. I play a lot of video games so it's hard to pick just one.

I enjoy Battlefield for it's competitive squad based gameplay. It takes teamwork to really be successful.

Gears of War has a great single player campaign, the multiplayer is a bit lack luster. Horde mode is great and king of the hill is always fun.

CoD just feels more fluid than most FPS games these days, the perk system is fun and the killstreaks are a blast. It's slightly more fast paced than Battlefield (BF3 excluded, it just seems amazing)

Fall out, it kinda goes without saying. It's more or less a post apocalyptic elder scrolls.

The Legend of Zelda, it's my roots man, my roots.

WoW, I spent too much time there for it not to be. I have like 4 level 85's and I'm sitting in rapt anticipation for the newest expansion. Mists of Pandaria, Mainly because I want to be Kung fu Panda.

And lastly Borderlands, Fps feel with Rpg elements executed smoothly. A vast array of weaponry and added weapon affects such as poison or elemental damages. Not to mention it's delightful sense of humor. Sorry this was so long winded.

Not sure if this counts as a double, but Arkham City is already out man. Go buy it.

Either Zelda or Assassins creed. Both have great stories and are pretty long.

Aww I am terrible at picking favorites. So, I must narrow it down to these:

Jak & Daxter series

God of War (obviously by my name lol)

Uncharted series

Prince of Persia series

& the Resistance series

I gotta say... hmmm.

Fallout Series - who doesn't like fallout?

Legend of Zelda: Majoras Mask I always like MM more than OoT. It was way creepier and more of a challenge.

Bioshock [just the original]

Pokémon Yellow. It just has to be there. /nostalgia

Chrono Trigger deserves to be mentioned here. It was one of my very first RPG's, and is still one of my all-time favorites. It is just so AWESOME!

Shake up between the arma series by bohemia interactive or the assassins creed series.

Another old RPG I really got into was The Siege of Avalon. It has a brilliant story in my opinion, and it was just fun in general. Also, there are no re-spawning enemies so you can't just keep grinding until you hit a level you like, and you can't just max out every skill. You have to really specialize and become exceptionally good at certain things.

There was an old series of games out years ago that are nearly impossible to find 9and dangerous to search for) called Worms. The game was a 2d sidecroller type with Worm soldiers in teams on each side of the screen Each team would take turns using the most rediculous weaponry against the other in hopes of winning. That series provided long hours of both fun and comedic entertainment. jocolor
