Best video game of all time
I've been playing games since the late 70's and still love it. I started with a grandstand machine and am now on the PS4. Of all the games and machines I've used, these are my top 3.

3. Manic Miner: The reason I bought a Spectrum.

2. Doom: A terrifying experience in a dark room.

1: Half Life2: Superb story and gameplay=best game ever.

What are yours?

Flashback on the Sega megadrive
Tocca on the PlayStation.

All other game consoles belong to my kids, so I don't play on them.

RE: Best video game of all time
Only been playing for about 10 years. Prefer stuff like the old arcade games but the Final Fantasy games pip all the other games I have, all on gameboy, gameboy advance and DS.
So:
Final fantasy 1,2,3,4,6,12 (I think, I'd have to dig them out!)
Dragon quest
The Lost Vikings

Presently enjoying Maze eater!

RE: Best video game of all time
I remember my older brother getting Doom on PC when I was a kid and telling me how controversial it was, giving me scare stories like people having heart attacks whilst playing it. Needless to say I never dared play it. I think in my child mind I thought if I was even watching my brother playing it I was in danger of having a heart attack at any moment.

I have to expand my list to 5

Final Fantasy X
Metal Gear Solid
Fallout 3
Legend of Zelda: Majora's Mask.

1. The Last of Us

I simply can't put 5-2 in any order but 1 is indisputable for me. I hadn't played video games for a few years before I was reintroduced by Last of Us and it was extraordinary. I didn't realise video games could offer such an incredible story and characters on top of the game-play.

Pretty close to my top three I'd say, although I really struggle naming favourite things.

I've just traded in FIFA 15, Elder Scrolls Online, and Shadow of Mordor for Rory Mac pga tour - it's rubbish.

I just don't enjoy games like I used to, I think it's because I don't have the time to really get into them. Skyrim is one of my favourite games ever but I just got bored with the latest elder scrolls game, same with shadow of Mordor, and I'm sure they're both brilliant games.

Those older games like syndicate are best left in the past though, I've downloaded things like cannon fodder, populous, settlers, and others from the amiga days and been disappointed every time. Isn't there a recent sequel to syndicate?

Foggy in with some amazing games there - metal gear solid was a great game. I played The Last Of Us on the recommendation of a pool fan on twitter and it was probably the last game I really enjoyed.

The Last Of Us is a truly great game. Thing is though, I've played it on PS3 and PS4 and have got stuck on both versions and haven't had the compulsion to finish it either time.

I finished it on ps4, I hadn't even heard of it before the remastered version came out.
