Half Life 2 by a mile. That’s one of the lowest hanging fruit on the tree. HL1 isn’t very good.

HL1 is incredible. You're out of your mind.

Final Fantasy 6

I actually bought a PS1 and this game. I just need a TV that won't stretch it to shit. It looks ridiculous on the 72″.

Since it was technically a series at three games,

Motherfucking

Timesplitters 2

Most underrated game ever?

when I played this back in the day, somehow I got an Alucard sword that just let me blow through every subsequent enemy. I've poked around and it seems like maybe this was a very rare weapon? Curious to hear of others remember this.

Final Fantasy 7 is the best for me, and 8 is nipping at its heels.

7 has the best overall story and characters, while 8 has the best end game sequence and the card game. Triple Triad is a massive part of why 8 kicked ass, and why 9 was lacking. (9 had its own card game and it was shitty).

I disagree. I would say the biggest improvement from the first game to the second game in any franchise is without question Half Life. I still remember that I picked up HL2 for $4 on clearance at Circuit City. It’s the best dollar for dollar game that I ever bought.

I feel like 7 really drops once you leave Midgar. The story gets convoluted and none of the new characters you meet are all that interesting except maybe Vincent.

6 has the best music and the best villain of the entire series.

FF8 was my favorite, I can't recommend the remake of 7 enough either.

No

:thumbsup:

I tried playing BS2 a few times but never got past the first few stages, thinking about jumping into BSI soon instead of trying again.

For some reason this makes me think of how LV loved Roller Coaster Tycoon and now I miss him

I have SimCity 2000 on my laptop, fucking awesome game. I think I have a port of it for PS1 laying around somewhere too.
