Video Games - All Time Classics

Soldiers and Savages,


Good morning and happy Monday!


Almost took that sick time PTO today with this sinus pressure but fuck it...let's tough it out on the phones!


Anyway, was wondering to hear what everyone's favorite video games are...favorite of all time that is. Tried looking for some similar threads with the search bar but every post focused on video prospecting and not video games, so I apologize if there is any redundancy here.


My top three of all time have to be Fallout 3, Halo 2, Red Dead Redemption 2.


At Ease.


P.S. Any OSRS fans in the house? Would love to hear about the grind.


Edit: Figured it would make sense to add the poll in on the thread as well, excited to see what everyone prefers to play on!

What's your go-to?

Zelda: Ocarina of time. Greatest RPG game of all time. This isn’t a debate

although I agree with you 10000% - Zelda is not a RPG

I mean it could be considered a bare bones rpg as many RPGs are action-adventure. Nevertheless you roleplay the entire game as Link...so I'd say it's debatable

I played it a ton with the hand-me-down N64. Will always hold a special place in my heart for being the first RPG I ever got my hands on.

Also Metroid prime was a great game. Super Mario sunshine. God I miss childhood sometimes

Oregon Trail was the pride of grammar school... never played the hard disk version, unfortunately.


Were you a fan of BOTW? I thought it was a masterpiece. Couldn't put it down. Definitely deserves a mention. Prob the best Zelda since Ocarina in my opinion.

Never got into BOTW!

If you never played the hard disk version then you never lived with the irrational fear that the computer would eat your hand (I am dating myself with this comment)

My favorite recent ones: Breath of the wild, red dead redemption and days gone.

My favorite legacy ones
Ocarina of time, Pokémon fire red and megaman battle network saga

I like the recent/legacy idea! Breath of the wild had to be one of the best RPGs to come out in recent years...it was too good to put down

Glad you liked it, how would your split go in recent/legacy split?

For sure, I played more than 500 hours and still missed 1 seed.

The Wild Hunt, a narrative and visual spectacle. Phenomenal game. 


Were you able to catch The Witcher Netflix show? haven't sat down to watch yet, but I heard some good things

Oh I've watched it multiple times at this point. Highly recommend. 

I think they were relatively strapped on budget for the first season, but it did extremely well. So for the next season I've heard they're going for more of a GoT cinematic world. Very real-looking.

Skyrim and Fallout 3 are probably the top two games Bethesda will ever release. 

Skyrim truly is a masterpiece. There is love for it I can assure you.

It can be played on pc ( some of the systems dont age the best); however, there is a remake being done by Aspyr. Might want to wait to see if that one makes it even better.

Command and Conquer was the first online game I played via dial-up modem.

Nothing like having your mom pick up the phone and disconnect you in the middle of a game against a top-ranked person.
