    Oor...I can't believe I forgot to mention...Warhammer 40k: Dawn of War 2 series in general..great progression

    Lol...the more I post, then go back reading other's posts the more game changing games I've played I remember, definitely can't fail to mention Wolrd of Warcraft...up for days without sleep, verge of relationship-ruining, and actually had withdrawals from finally quiting WoW...meaning any other game I tried to get into for at least a year or two after WoW was impossible..nothing measured up or was interesting anymore compared to WoW...actually same thing happened to me after the initiAl year of playing Destiny.  Now though...no way I could ever play WoW again lol..just isn't the same..even if the game was the same as during vanilla and burning crusade...my brain is chemically changed and tolerant/bored of how that game system works now..desensitized to certain game concepts now haha..an MMO. Has not gripped me and made me play it since wow or destiny.

    Civ 2 - for the strategy
    Torchlight II - for the pretty world and the customization
    Glitch - for the world and the players and the everything (any other Glitchers here?)

    (Oh, also, this is a fun question!)
  • TheWizardTheWizard Posts: 794 Wizard
    totally!

    YESsss, Torchlight II is the best (hardcore mode ftw). Haven't played Glitch, but keep meaning to...

    Glitch was shuttered a few years back, unfortunately. On the plus side, they made all the code Creative Commons, so there are some attempts to recreate the world. And the developer's gone on to create a little thing called Slack. ;)

    Right, right, right. They've got their hands full, haha.

    Honestly, EQ(Everquest) will always be (for me) the standard for mmorpgs.

    It was satisfying because it was insanely difficult, which made it more rewarding in the long run. It wasn't like WoW where you could eventually grind away to get decent gear. You had to have luck, skill, a guild, and a lot of invested time to be able to even qualify for rarer items, ( if they even dropped) some of which only three to five people on a server had acquired.

     To anyone who has played EQ before... How crazy is it that a cr (corpse run) was an actual thing?! Sneaking through a difficult zone with monsters 30+ your level to drag your corpse to the entrance and loot fast enough to not get killed... 
  • TheWizardTheWizard Posts: 794 Wizard
    oh yes, @Hollow-- I have a corpse run story from EQ that I will tell someday... I know exactly what you're talking about.

    For me it's Fire Emblem, World of Warcraft, Monster Hunter 4G and Baldur's Gate.

    Mmm, Baldur's Gate. So many memories...

    Dragon Age: Origins. Baldur's Gate series. Civilization. Spent some time playing Never winter Nights MMO but lost interest when I ran out of plot.
  • hwlrmnkyhwlrmnky Posts: 17 Mendicant
    I forgot to mention that I loved Infinity Blade iOS.
  • hwlrmnkyhwlrmnky Posts: 17 Mendicant
    And (because everyone loves a repeat repeat poster) I spent over a year playing the Dragon Age mobile game because I was familiar with and fond of the world. Also, I spent a fair amount there because they kept coming out with awesome animal fighter units. I'm definitely part of the animals = wallet open demographic.

    Cant believe with all the talk about jrpgs and fft and tactics ogre that persons of lordly calibre was missed. The only game ive ever seen come close to The Continuum in regards to party selection depth and management and rpg strategy rolled into one. Anyone that likes those games should try it for sure.

    persons of lordly calibre
    One of the few N64 games I desperately wanted to play but never got to. I've played a bit of OB: March of the Black Queen since then and really liked it. Maybe I'll snag it on my Wii virtual console once my office is fully setup...
  • TheWizardTheWizard Posts: 794 Wizard
    Wow, I've never even heard of that game (and, um, I was a fan of The Continuum...)

    @TheWazard, E.T. for the 2600.  Most satisfying game ever.  Lived up to the hype.  I bought two copies.

    trolololol

    @TheWizard
    Have you never played either of the US Ogre Battle games? March of the Black Queen is for SNES and PoLC is N64. Really interesting squad based 'hands off' tactical games, you should look them up (You configure your squads composition and tactics, but they play out the battle outside of your direct control"

    Clearly I have fond memories of this event too, but uh, I gotta be honest: the 2005 Indie DnD movie "Wrath of the Dragon God" wasn't half bad for what it was (low budget more true to DnD than those other shenanigans)

    I must also confess to greatly enjoying The Gamers series (1, 2, and 3, at least).

    That first D&D movie was just plain Bad.  The second that the Sci-fy channel did was okay.

    Agreed. Though while looking on IMDB I discovered there is apparently a 3rd...? Now I have to figure out how to watch it.
  • docgeodocgeo Posts: 45 Adventurer
    I think I saw it on You tube and it revolved around an evil cult....almost positive I saw it.
