On a completely unrelated and off-topic note, I clicked on Darque's user profile to see if there was an interesting sig line (I click on peoples profiles every now and then to do that, as I have the signature feature switched off)...

And saw this:

Damn is that an active moderator!

No, KOTOR isn't in my top. It might not even be in my top 20.

No way. I had fun with KOTOR, but it's nowhere near my top10. Besides I've always thought that most of KOTOR's fun factor was derived from the setting rather than the game itself.

This is a post of mine with 15 of my favourite games:

Yes I'd rate KOTOR in my top 10.
In no specific order: My Top 5

System Shock 2 :p
Deus Ex
Fallout
Planescape: Torment
Thief II: The Metal Age

SS2 though, ever since I first played it... till today... maybe not the best game ever, but it is my Favourite. Never before or since has a game gripped me... and not let go until the end.
When I killed that monster, the metal-mother, the self-proclaimed digital godless Goddess called SHODAN -- Was I finally freed from that unholy alliance. It was truly awesome. :lol:

Not for me. KOTOR was a fun game, but it wasnt spectacular. Storywise it was mediocre, NPC interaction was fun, but rather bland. Gameplay wise, it suffered from overpowered items and munchkin fast level upping and seriously unbalanced gameplay - really, after you got force powers the game became so very easy.

Overall : Yes

1) Neverwinter Nights (Original on AOL 15 years ago), 1st MMORPG made (Biowares NWN would probably come in around 30th - 40th spot on my list).
2) Civilization 3 (with both expansions)
3) KotOR2
4) KotOR1
5) ANY SSI Gold Box game (AD&D RPGS)
6) Original Might and Magic
7) World Games (old game for C64 and Apple 2e computers)
:lol: Rollercoaster Tycoon (with expansions)
9) Civ 2 Test of Time
10) Heros of Might and Magic (2 or 3)

Ive played probably around 300-400 games over all the years but those 10 definately lead their respective feilds/genres for me.

Kotor 1 was a fine game, but I don't know if I will like Kotor 2 as much. I read a recent article at ign.com which was saying that the PC version was VERY buggy (even more than the XBox version). I hope I won't be disappointed... :lol:

If it's buggy, I'll be waiting for patches or the bargain bin. :lol:

Well, I don't know if this an another example of bias towards older games, or the fact that people played the game after a few months of its release, but KOTOR 1 had a few serious bugs when it came to the PC - bugs that made the game quite unplayable, untill they patched it.

It seems people just don't want to use the same standards for the game.

Indeed it did. My KOTOR II should be arriving in a couple of days. Renting ceased to be an option when I "found out" about the suprise trip for valentines week. Good job or I would have ended up paying more in late fee's than the cost of the game.

Standards change over time but it's quite common for reviewers to gloss over the faults in games they like and draw attention to faults in games they dont.

I don't think I've played enough games to make a top 10 list since I missed out on the past two console generations. There are probably some gems in there that would blow me away though. Like Ninja Gaiden...I want play that game so much.

But for sheer enjoyment experienced I'd say in no particular order,

Soul Calibur 1 & 2 (In the arcades)

Starcraft : I've played some memorable B-net games.

Baldur's Gate. First game to introduce me to D&D or AD&D at the time

Dark Forces 2 : Jedi Knight : The later Jedi Knight games can't compare.

Planescape: Torment : This transcended a mere game in my opinion though I'm sure others strongly disagree.

Super Mario 64 : I borrowed a N64 from my cousin and since I had missed the Super nintendo Mario games I was totally blown away by the new format. I played this game for hours and still play when I'm over at my cousin's house. There's just something about it.

Romance of the Three Kingdoms 6-9 : You have to be Asian and have read the books to truly appreciate the history and characters in the game. Each game is basically the same with incremental improvements but something draws me back to them time and time again.

Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time. I never was able to finish the original PoP 1&2. This game is incredible and I think the combat was much more fluid and graceful than Warrior Within.

Contra 3 The Alien Wars : What you're fighting an awesome flying robot/jetplane and you have to jump from missile from missile hundreds of feet in the air to avoid its attacks? COOOL

Mega Man 2 : I love this game! Especially the battle against Quickman. I always beat him with the Crashbombs instead of the Flash Beam. Takes some timing and luck. One time I beat Leafman in one single charged up hit, but I forgot how.

I think I'll stop now....games just keep popping into my head.

KotOR holds a special place in my hear too.

I loved KoTOR, it just fit me like a glove.


my own personal great PC games list would probably look like this(somewhat chronologic)

Alone in the Dark
Sim City
Maniac mansion 2: day of the tentacle
DooM
Sam n' Max hit the road
Beneath a steel sky
Neverwinter Nights
Arcanum
Planescape Torment
Baldurs Gate 2+ToB
KoTOR



but my memory is selective
