The Obsidian Community all-time top 106 games (poll) - CLOSED! See new thread for results


Recommended Posts

 

There is a suspicious lack of Deus Ex's

Some of us followed the rules by posting our lists as a PM.

Yeah I read the rules but then I saw the comments were lists so I thought something had changed :/

Just what do you think you're doing?! You dare to come between me and my prey? Is it a habit of yours to scurry about, getting in the way and causing bother?

 

What are you still bothering me for? I'm a Knight. I'm not interested in your childish games. I need my rest.

 

Begone! Lest I draw my nail...

It's helpful to do both, because it's easy to forget some hidden gems. I read through all the posted lists before I started writing mine. I've since come up with a list of 25 other titles, the hard work now is to merge them into a singular top 25. (A task somewhat hampered by the second list only existing as a plain text file on a different device)

Good point actually about the PMs, you can't help but be influenced.

 

Well, the idea was less about the possibility of influence (which is a fine point too, of course), but also the possibility of keeping the results a surprise. All the same, it's no trouble really. If anything posting the lists here has helped the thread stay afloat during the last few weeks, and helped others compile their own. I for one am happy to have more people taking part! :D

Why has elegance found so little following? Elegance has the disadvantage that hard work is needed to achieve it and a good education to appreciate it. - Edsger Wybe Dijkstra

Can I ask why the people who picked Dungeon Keeper 2 did so over the original?

 

For me personally DK2 is easily in the top 10 or even top 5 of my most disappointing games ever.

 

Personally, I played Dungeon Keeper 2 before the 1st and had a lot of problems getting the original to run (no sound, iirc). I'm not sure I ever finished DK1 as a result though I replayed a lot of it when EA gave the game away a year or so ago.

 

That explains a lot ;)

 

What OS did you try to run it on btw? I don't think I ever had trouble with it up until at least Windows XP, I don't think I have tried it since.

Magic Carpet, that brings back some memories. :)

 

I also don't know how I did not put Wing Commander on my list. My name actually comes from that game. I was 12 and needed a call sign, and I somehow came up with Hurlshot.

I have questions about that list but I'll tuck those back in

About my list? You can ask what you want :-)

 

In the end I found about 35 games, which I wanted to put my list, but decided to pick these games, with which I spent most time having fun for various reasons :-)

375x500.276.jpg over CK2

 

And Shadowrun Returns over Dragonfall and Hong Kong?

I had CK1 over 2 as well. For me it was because even at the point I stopped playing CK2 it was obviously going to be a load of 'cool' ideas slapped together randomly and an excuse to have one million and one dlcs. There was always something broken that was not fixed before the next set of features came along in the next dlc and introduced more bugs, and which would thus not get fixed. CK1 had bugs, certainly, but it was also focused solely on the fantastic base idea at the heart of the series. I liked CK2, but it left a nasty aftertaste.

 

 

What OS did you try to run it on btw? I don't think I ever had trouble with it up until at least Windows XP, I don't think I have tried it since.

 

 

Win98, I think, but on a laptop. Other computer had either NT4 (or Windows 2000) which were notoriously hard to run games on.

And Shadowrun Returns over Dragonfall and Hong Kong?

CK1, because I do not have Steam. So I have never played it. SRR before anything else, well Dragonfall and Hong Kong are kind of still on my backlog, because, I still have to finish them :/

 

I really hope, that in Obsidian top 100 2018, I can put new Shadowruns on my list. I just decided to skip them for now.

I'll have to try out the Shadowrun games. They are super cheap when on sale so I'll wait for then.

Just what do you think you're doing?! You dare to come between me and my prey? Is it a habit of yours to scurry about, getting in the way and causing bother?

 

What are you still bothering me for? I'm a Knight. I'm not interested in your childish games. I need my rest.

I wish so much, they would put Victoria 2 as next game on GoG. But I lost all hope. I bought all other Paradox grand strategies the first day they were put there, and to this day, it's one of the best impulse buys, I've ever made :D

Vic 2 was DRM free on a bunch of services other than GOG, I got it from Gamersgate Impulse back in the day. There's probably one more tranche of Paradox games to come to GOG which would include V2 and King Arthur 2 plus maybe a few other missing titles from their DRM free phase.

I added in a rule so as to allow people to present a list of fewer choices than 25, if you absolutely can't fill out a top 25. Also, while not necessary, if you guys know of anyone you get along with in the forum who might be interested in taking part, feel free to contact them so that they do! The more votes, the better. :grin:
