Well, since its betting forum and most guys discuss about sports, I think that many will agree with me that PRO Evolution is classes above FIFA in every consol while NBA 09 in PS3 simple rocking. Of course I like also some others but those are in my top list by far.

Playing Baldur's Gate is by far the most memorable gaming experience I've ever had, I didn't play a single game who came close to it.

I used to be a CM/FM addict but didn't play it for a while now.

Right now I'm playing Oblivion and though it's a good game it's just not Baldur's Gate...

I've recently bought Planescape Torment but I can't get it to work properly on my machine, because I don't know how to disable the 3D acceleration in Vista.. Anyone?

I played Baldur's when i was at the beginning of my studies.

I had my windows curtains closed, so I didn't know what's the time and a couple of times it happened that I was looking at the clock and it was f.e. 6.00 a.m.

Heroes of Might & Magic 2&3 - simply mighty and magic game, great strategy in fantasy world, good story behind it and great gameplay

Fallout 1&2 - fantastic storyline, great atmosphere, music and all were bulding great post-apocalyptic feel, numerous great gags and easter eggs, the feeling of freedom of choice in Fallout 2, being able to do so many different things, numerous ways to end the sequel

Baldur's Gate 1&2 - great story, great gameplay, great characters, great game

Max Payne 1&2 - I'm not much into shooting things in real-time but what a great storyline that was, the comic-narration was cool and wriitng was simply awesome, Payne was very likable character and despite dark story game also had great share of humour

Wacraft 2 - great strategy, good story, very playable

Starcraft - again good strategy but also great storyline, music and the cinematics rule

Diablo 1 & 2 - great atmosphere, story and music was just great specially the Tristram theme, man that just kicks ass : http://pl.youtube.com/watch?v=IvvXsr...eature=related

Championship Manager - fantastic game, useless to count hours spent on playing it ops: always there were some bugs so patches were needed and I most remeber one version in which Anelka was very good player but such a spoiled brat who would start moaning after a week in new club, not attending trainings, feeling homesick, wanting to be transfer listed etc. and during games he was so lazy and doing nothing while other players had condition around 70 after end of the game that bastard had always over 90, no sweat and few times kicked the ball

EA's NBA series - were always very playable, I most remember one of first version don't know if that wasn't '97 when in Miami there were Dan Majerle, Voshon Lenard, Tim Hardaway and Jamal Mashburn and they were kicking ass by shooting all the threes

EA's NHL series - it always kicked ass and was by far msot perfect of EA's sport simulations until the stopped improving it, hitting, checking, fighting of course scoring goals too, usually some nice music and great intro's too http://pl.youtube.com/watch?v=YkdKksI_Fhk or the music in the menu here http://pl.youtube.com/watch?v=fu0K3zktU8A the early versions were real revolution and Selanne-Rucchin-Kariya Anaheim's line kicked ass

EA's FIFA series - once a best football simulation, '98 Road to World Cup was the most enjoyable for me, then they spoiled the game and those new versions were wooden, then PES 3 appeared and I relived the joy of of playing computer footie.

Worms - that was fun, all the arsenal of weapons and little worms talking funny

Age of Empires - for the time when it was released, it was simply awesome, great graphics and nice gameplay

Commandos - that was great too, had to think and plan carefully to kick Nazi's ass

Apparently not in Vista.. I googled "disable 3d acceleration" and it seems to be a common problem.

Indeed. HOMM 3 could be named the best game ever. I still play it, with some of my friends, after 10 years... many nights lost with this game, and many bottles emptied.

Football Manager is another series of games that devoured a loooot of my time, and I just can't stop playing it. (in FM 2008, I reached the 2020-2021 season, when I won the Champions League with Steaua, in the 3rd consecutive final against Chelsea).

Final Fantasy - each game of the series is unique and superb, but my personal favorite remains FF7. Great connection between the player and the characters (those who played it know what I mean).
