    What's the best game you've ever played and why? Sometimes games just blow you away and you want to tell everyone about it.
    My top games are Heavy Rain, Silent Hill 1 and 2, and Dead Space 1 and 2. All of those games really sucked me into the experience. I was surprised by how good Heavy Rain was and the Silent Hill and Dead Space games kept me on my toes. Very original games

      Silent Hill 1 & 2 are works of art, masterpieces of horror. Scarier than any movie, the atmosphere, the psychological effect, the symbolism, the narrative, it's pure genius.

      The Metal Gear Solid series has been some of my favorites for years, having some of the best gameplay, with the elaborate stories, the little funny details breaking the 4th wall, and of course, Solid Snake.

      Ókami is another game I love, so creative, fresh and original, and just simply fun.

      Half-Life 1 and 2 can't go unmentioned.

      And some indie games: Machinarium and Braid.

    I'll stick with my favorite, which isn't a game you play on any gaming system. It's called Chess. The average board game still rules. wink

    Mafia, The city of lost heaven (first one). I liked GTA's too but Mafia was awesome. A.I. was great, when playing the same mission you can't expect the enemies in the same place. The story is great, have different ways to end a misson.

    And of course the race. I haven't one more difficult than that. The second part was boring though or perhaps I grew up.

    Chess with Nightmare chess cards (get them from most gift/specialist game stores) turns a game of chess into chess meets The Matrix meets Inception.

    Lots of fun smile

    From an electronic game point of view. The original X-Com game from the now defunct Microprose (Atari)
