Say you had to marry a video game and you could only be with that game the rest of your life and play no others. What game would you select? It can only be one game so no swinger (multiple) answers allowed, lol pretend your on a desert island (with electricity lol) with a 40" 1080p Samsung Lcd and you can have only one video game to play for the rest of your life.

Here is my choice:

NHL94 on the Sega Genesis
I am a Football fan, but this game made me a hockey fan back in the day! It represents everything a video game should be; FUN!

As great as our technology and graphics are today, a lot of modern games have lost the focus of the FUN aspect.

NHL94 has unlimited addictive replay value especially if you have friends around...it is the ultimate party game and one of the first games to allow four players at once!!

I have been playin this masterpiece again on the Gens emulator paired with the wired xbox 360 controller and I must say it is a match made in heaven!!

Does orange box count? Or a steam account?

I would honestly say a madden game. I play it more then any other, but I would miss rts on pc, fps co op with my friends, and racing with friends. It would be a difficult decision. Hell I still play starcraft and homm3 from 1998. I just add more games, never less.

Clearly, there is no other choice but Rock Band. Now obviously this would require hardware that can actually last more than two play sessions without breaking, but this is a different matter altogether...

I quit World of Warcraft quite a while ago, but I have to say, if I could only ever play one game for my entire life, it would be that... simply because there's so much to do and it's always evolving/changing.

I say my favorite all time game would be Tribes 1. I'd choose that if it magically updated graphically with the times.

No but I've seen enough gameplay footage and demonstrations to know. Not to mention, just about every gaming site out there that has gotten their hands on it couldn't say enough for how fun it was.

For me it would definately be an MMORPG. I quit FFXI years ago, but was pretty well established when I quit. I would probably pick that up again, because that's the only game I was able to play for ungodly amounts of time and stay content.

Thats like marrying a girl you never met, but only heard about. Good luck with that.

Mine would have to be a football game. Since it would be the last game I'd ever play it would have to be NCAA. Only reason I'd pick it over Madden is because if I'm on a deserted island, the variety of teams NCAA offers would be what I would need over the long haul.

I don’t know that I can make this kind of commitment.

If I absolutely had to choose though it would have to be a big open world type game. I have never played a WoW or any MMORPG so I guess I can't list one of them as my one game. So I would have to pick between Morrowind or maybe even Daggerfall (but I would like them upgraded to next gen graphics)....so I guess Morrowind.
NCAA would be on my short list, but since theres a chance I would smash the controller through the last TV, I have to rule it out.... I need to take my sports game less seriously.

But if I had to sit down right now and play ANY game just one last time before I died, it wouldn’t be either of those games then it would be something like Chronicles of Riddick or Gears of War or COD4.

I would have to choose from:

Mario Party, Goldeneye 007, COD4, Counter-Strike, Forza 2 or Rock Band

Obviously it would have to be multiplayer. Even better if its on the same console.

PGR2. As much fun as it's been playing GOW w/my online buds, I've never had as good a time playing a game as I did online or off more than PGR2.

Hmmm.... tough choices indeed.

If I had to pick something now, at this moment...

Day of Defeat (version 1.3) with all the sounds from my sound pack and all the new textures I used to use.

My friend and I LOVED this game. Played it all day, all night. We used to be so good at the game that the two of us could easily take on 4-8 seasoned DOD players and still win. In fact, I can recall many many times where it was just us at the top of the team with scores like 72 kills - 6 deaths and the average score for every other player was something like 22 kills - 18 deaths and so on... We got accused of cheating all the time which was hilarious and sad at the same time. Whiny server owners would kick us sometimes because we kicked that much ass. Though we got along with people just fine. Then the game got changed radically with version 2.0 and then... Half Life 2 came out so now its DoD:Source. Just not the same anymore now.

Also, pre version 1.0 Counter Strike was our other playground. I owned with the AK. I was an AK master back then.

I miss those days...

For the 360 I would say Gears of War. However all time it has to be a Blizzard game (either Starcraft or Diablo 2). I purposly avoided WoW, but did get sucked into Guild Wars for a while.

Xbox and PS3 Gamertag = Xerostomia
Wii = I'm too lazy to get the number

Same here, DOD 1.3 was great. Remember that map "The Hill" Sniping down the hill or trying to sneak up the hill without getting sniped. I was so let down with DOD Source.


One game to play is tossup between RockBand, COD4 and Forza 2

if it was any game, it would be the arcade version of Killer Instinct, with the HD hard drive...

if it was only for a video game system, than it would be the original Ghost Recon for the original Xbox. i remember back in the day, when XBL was released, pretty much everyone on XBL played it. there was a time when i played it every night for about 4 months straight... lol
