1) X-Com UFO Defense. Greatest game ever made.
2) Legend of Zelda: A link to the past, a very close second
3) Sid Meiers Pirates: the original and the new version
4) The entire Civilization series
5) Star Wars KotOR I and II

Outside the top 5 is some great old pc games such as; Wing commander series, Leisure suit larry series, Kings Quest series.

Also most peoples favorites nowadays, elder scrolls, fallouts, grand theft autos, etc.

Final Fantasy VII is my favorite game! :D

I won't download the steam version until people come up with a good method for reverting the version back so I can install mods.

I'm just gonna copypasta something I said on Facebook about FF7 the other day . . . one moment. . .

So had an interesting discussion with [redacted] last night sparked by the release of Final Fantasy 7 on Steam. Wondering what other people think of my take on FF7.

I was never a huge fan of 7. I remember crying for joy when it came out, and being disappointed by the game. It's a fun game, it's a good game, but 6 was a tough act for it to follow.

It felt incomplete. It felt, to me, like it had approached the breadth of 6, but failed to hit the mark. It felt incomplete, like there were huge swaths of the game that should have been made, but simply weren't. It is one of my least favorites - right down there with 9 at the bottom of the barrel.

But it wasn't just the story that seemed incomplete, wasn't just the world, but even the characters seemed unpolished, too undefined in some points. That changed with subsequent games, but lets face it - theres little to nothing about Vincent, or Yuffie, or Reeve. If it were a book, it wouldn't have done well.

And Sephiroth. Sephiroth is not that cool of a bad guy. Again, Kefka was a tough act to follow. But that aside, he's kind of a Worf. We're told what a badass he is, but never really shown. He has one scene where he does something truly evil - he slaughters that village, burns it to the ground. Killing Aeris is not all that evil, lets face it - annoying, yes, and kind of breaking the rules of the world because I would have just dropped a phoenix down on her ass. To enforce the view that he was a badass, the game world had to be twisted around it. Sure, he LOOKS cool, and he has a giant fucking sword, but...so? Doesn't make him a badass. Kefka was a fucking CLOWN and is my all time favorite video game villain - borrow from THAT character design. Don't stop at torching a town, now go poison a castle, manipulate the good guys into doing your will, kill everyone who trusts you, blow up the planet, and THEN get started on being an evil badass. Kefka did all that before FF6 even got started.

FF7 was an unimpressive game. Thoughts?

Hmm.. I see the VtM:Bloodlines is now five bucks less - so 14.99. Eh..

I picked up Borderlands2.. I haven't played the first, but for ten bones it isn't too bad. I would highly recommend the 'Overlord' pack. Both games were a hoot to play and had just great dialog.
