What do you think is the best video game ever? It does not have to be a Star Wars game, it can be any game from the Atari up.I think the best game is Super Mario Bros. 3 for the Nintendo. I loved playing that game. My cousin and I used to play for hours. That game rocks!!!

Hard to quantify the "best" video game of all time since all of the different genres and progresses in technology. I would say Super Mario 3 is up there along with Street Fighter II, which defined a whole new age in gaming. My favourite though has to be TIE Fighter. It was a engrossing saga with some memorable moments including the TIE Defender and Missile Boat. Now if they would only come out with an AT-AT simulator.

Force Sensitive
for my old TI/99-4A - Parsec
for PC - Episode 1 Racer - a game that I can actually do well at!
for PS/2 - Grand Tourismo 3 (I can't believe the graphics)

But then, I don't play games all that often. I tend to buy them, play them once, and then never play them again, until I uninstall them a year or so later to free up room on the HDD :)

Best video game ever?

My vote goes straight to The Legend of Zelda Ocarina of Time. I love this game more than any other, I attribute great memories to it. The music is astoundingly beautiful for a game. This game combines all of that into a long, but far from tedious, journey.

It may not be perfect in every respect of a game, but it is a special game in my mind and heart.

Metroid III.

Man I cannot freakin' WAIT until Metroid Prime comes out. I have faith that Nintendo is not going to let this franchise turn out to be lame.

While we are talking "best video games" I submit the "worst video game" to you.

Superman 64. I sold it for a buck about a day after I got it thats how terrible it was.

NES Legend of Zelda is one of the most fun games I've ever played, it even has an alt-version of the entire game in case you get done with the first one. It's very rudamentary by today's standards, but is still a ton of fun to play and that music gets stuck in your brain.

I thought Zelda II was crappy by comparison, it was an entirely different concept, Zelda as a side-scroller totally failed IMO.

Luckily, SNES' Zelda 3: Link to the Past fixed all that by being a truly awesome game.
