Halo: Reach

I get a lot of flak for it, but Bungie's final Halo, Reach, is my favorite game of all time. Halo is my favorite series, so I'm a big Master Chief fan and everything, but there was something about the game's storytelling. The atmosphere. Knowing the planet was going to fall, seeing your squad go down one-by-one, but Noble 6 still pushed through for the greater good. Plus, multiplayer was great, as usual.

Atari 2600 & 5200: too damn many but simple games got rotated around a lot
Nintendo: Super Mario Bros, Contra
Apple II: Ultima IV, Autoduel, Seven Cities of Gold, Karateka
Macintosh: Dark Castle, MacRisk (fricking classic), Reach for the Stars
Sega Saturn: Virtual Fighter, Panzer Dragoon
Playstation: Twisted Metal 1 and 2 (TM2 - still love it and own a PS1 just for this game)
PC: Halflife, Battlefield 2, Doom, Zork I was kind of memorable
Xbox and Xbox 360: GTA Vice City (I wish they'd just update this one - I have no interest in any of the others although I do play them some), Morrowind (very addictive), Halo series, Lego Batman and other Legos (fun with the kids)

ALLTIME: Super Mario Brothers, Twisted Metal 2, GTA Vice City, Halflife, Battlefield 2, Ultima IV


Note that I've avoided the later Elder Scrolls games due to them being too good to put down and haven't touched MMORPG as I like good RPGs enough that I don't want to involve myself here either. Avoiding Everquest on launch day has been a good career move. I also don't have the time to these days and at various periods in life to really immerse myself in a variety of games. I owned a grand total of 3 NES games.
