I wasn't sure to make this a TOP 5 or a TOP 10 so I am going to let everyone decide which one they want to pick, so its up to you.

Also, you can mention a franchise type game such as Madden and Grand Theft Auto, or if you want to narrow it down you can say "Super Mario 3" or "Left 4 Dead 2." You can also just put the favorite of a franchise game in quotations if you can't decide......Have fun....

1.Pac Man
2.Super Mario Brothers Franchise "Super Mario 3"
3.Grand Theft Auto Franchise "Grand Theft Auto 4"
4.Fallout Franchise "Fallout 3"
5.The Godfather
6.Scarface
7.The Warriors
8.Resident Evil Franchise "Resident Evil 4"
9.Need for Speed Franchise "Need for Speed Underground 2"
10.Madden Franchise "Madden 2010 :)"

I like RA3 but I feel RA2 had a better feel plus it was the version of the original engine that had finally got the game rules just right. I remember spending 45 minutes trying to complete one the the later levels in Tiberian Sun because I hadn't killed one last solitary soldier and had to hunt around to find him. Adding the rule where if certain key structures had been destroyed the enemy packed up and marched on your base was a stroke of genius!

I never continued my video game fanaticism beyond my adolescence/teenage years. I still love playing Madden or baseball, but never got into RPG. As a kid I loved the Super Mario Bros. franchise. I know nothing of today's games; my brother, on the other hand, would be able to put up his top 5/10 since he still buys and plays for XBox360.

I have to play RA2 again. I like some of those actors better, RA2's Tanya was more dynamic, over-the-top. RA3's Tanya (we know who the actress is ;) )
at times seems lackluster/ dull, or maybe shes acting 'normally'; yet, I guess I keep thinking about the original charismatic Tanya, and want her to be in RA3.

Yeah, Tiberium Sun had its quirks. I remember winning the NOD campaign pretty fast, then I did not play Tiberium Sun for months, came back to it,
and for some reason, one level would not let me win for many days, then by luck ,I finally passed that level.

Wow that is a shocker. You really consider this game to be the best of all time? I haven't played it yet but it does look pretty interesting.....but to consider it one of the greatest...that shocks me .I also like that you have Smackdown vs. Raw...easily the best wrestling game ever made. A few years ago friends and I couldn't get enough of that game and we would play it religiously.

Not the best of all time. Just one of my favorites. Kinda like how Joe Louis or Muhammad Ali, either one of them is usually considered the greatest heavyweight boxer of all-time, yet my favorite heavyweight is Rocky Marciano. See the difference?

Gotcha. I just assumed since I know you are an avid gamer, but you cleared it up. :)

Yeah I just ordered a turbo controller online recently so I can get the "They call me No Touch" Achievement for UFC 2009: Undisputed, which you get when you go undefeated in career mode and the "Hall of Fame" achievement hopefully too. Actually I think they now call them rapid fire controllers, but for now I'm getting the thumbstick mod controller.

Haunting Ground? I always meant to play that. I think it was some game about a girl in a haunted house with some dog. Anyone else ever heard of that game?
