Planescape Torment
Prince of Persia: Sands of Time
Realms of the Haunting
Thief Gold

I can't believe that I had enough to narrow the list down to 10. I think my first RPG was Betrayal in Antara and it consumed me so it moved Diablo of my list. Oh Well.........

Here's mine.

Morrowind
Divine Divinity
Gothic
No One Lives Forever
Tomb Raider 2
Tomb Raider 3
Tomb Raider 4
Realms of the Haunting
Betrayal in Antara
Sacred

A rather short list as it takes me ages to play a RPG:

Baldur's Gate 1
Baldur's Gate 2

Not sure I'll have any more to add by next year!

Hi Syd,
There is no rule about editing after posting, but there IS a rule about editing after I have counted - which I haven't yet done so go for it.


Quantity has a quality all of its own

I have only played one game that I think would count, but I loved it! It's Indiana Jones and the Infernal Machine.

I'm also currently loving 007 Everything or Nothing, but I don't think it's available for PC so doesn't count. But if you have a console I really recommend it.

I'm really glad you said that, Flotsam, seeing as how I already went an' did it blush

Cheers.

This is cheating slightly as I haven't finished two of these games yet:

Zanzarah
Anachronax
Populous The Beginning
Puzz 3d - Bavarian Castle
Age of Empires
ThinkX
Can I include SuperCollapse which you can download from the internet?

Niku'a is Summoner a PC game? I played it on the PS2.

THANK YOU, flotsam!! This is wonderful for those of us that have "fallen prey" to the "dark side!"

Here is my list, in no particular order:

1. Divine Divinity
2. Diablo II: Lord of Destruction
3. Sacred
4. Clive Barker's Undying
5. MORROWIND!!!!
6. Neverwinter Nights
7. System Shock 2
8. Anachronox
9. Robin Hood: The Legend of Sherwood
10. Omikron: The Nomad Soul

And honorable mention goes to:

Triple Peaks Solitaire (from Pogo.com - I know, it's not really "the dark side," but it's not an adventure EITHER!)

Thanks to all you moderators, for all you do!


PLAYING ON PC: World of Warcraft...nothing else...there is no need for ANY other game when you have THIS one to play!! LOL

1. Thief 1 Gold
2. THief 2
3. Deus Ex - the original game
4. Baldur's Gate Shadows of Amn
5. Baldur's Gate
6. Baldur's Gate Tales of the Sword Coast
7. Gothic 1
8. Gothic 2
9. Morrowind
10. Star Wars Knights of the Old Republic

(Edit: I didn't include Thief 3 - although it was a great game, I haven't played the patched version yet. If I had, it might have bumped KOTOR off the end of the list. Not that KOTOR isn't a great game - I had a lot of trouble picking ten games, actually - I would have included about five more if I had been able to!).

Jude,

Summoner came out for the PC. since the game is identical to the PSX2 version, i see no reason why you couldn't list it if you so desired.

Summoner 2 however never came for the PC nor will it --bummer!

I played quite a bit of Summoner 2 on the PS2 (don't know if it's the same as the Gamecube version, which has a slightly different title), and didn't find it quite as fun as the first. Don't worry Zanthia, you aren't missing much.

I've noticed that Thief: The Dark Project and Thief Gold have received a few votes. Will they be considered the same thing, or separate games?

In response to feardust's query, I think Thief 1 and Thief Gold should really be counted as one game because one is just a longer version of the other and not an expansion pack - that's my two cent's worth.

2. Civilization 2 (not 3)
3. Heroes of Might and Magic 3: Shadow of Death (not 4)
4. Super Mario 64 (not Sunshine)
5. The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time (not Master Quest)

All highly recommended games for all gamers.

I have a question..

Some of us had a hard time coming up with 10, and then some of the gamers like Zanthia, Schwab, Hagatha, Debra, and a few others; those that have been playing these types of games for a long time could come up with more than 10...
Could they be allowed to add the others they would want to mention? Just to sort of balance out the ones that cannot make it to 10?
You opinions are valuable to us-already has added a game to my playing list- <img border="0" title="" alt="[Razz]" src="tongue.gif" />

I know the reason 10 was so that those of us new to gaming in this world could join in the fun happydance

Thanks,
Ingie laugh
