10-01-2013, 02:14 PM #61... I take the lives of a few to protect the lives of many. I commit acts of war to preserve the greater peace. I take no joy in killing, but make no mistake; I'll do what needs to be done. Because it's my job. It's my duty. My name is Sam Fisher, and I am a Splinter Cell.

Ok then, mine would be:
Team Fortress 2
Football Manager 2012
Dungeons of Dredmor
World of Goo
Just Cause 2
Left 4 Dead
Recent purchases Saints Row: The Third and Skyrim will probably end up on this sort of list, but I've not enough time invested in them yet.

What the hell is MATLAB?
Also, in no order:
Company of Heroes
Dragon Age: Origins
Mount and Blade: Warband
Total War (I couldn't pick between any since Medieval 2)
Mass Effect 2
GTA IV (crap port, but I enjoy the game itself)
Assassins Creed (I think)
Left 4 Dead
There's probably so many that would interchange with these games so it's not a great list.

After a year of Matlabbing I'm looking forward to going back to R.Irrelevant on further examination of the rest of the thread.

this thread. Unfortunately, rather like Mass Effect, Alpha Protocol is nearly impossible to modify in any substantial way. It's a shame, because even some minor changes could enhance the gameplay quite a lot.
Ah well, maybe it's for the best. We'd probably just get a dozen "romance Sis" mods anyway.

-Team Fortress 2. Even though I no longer play it, and most likely never will again, it's the most fun I've ever had playing multiplayer. And I don't know about now, but back when I played, it's balance was just perfect.
-Mount & Blade. It's just perfect, if I could only play one game for the rest of my life that would be Warband.
-Batman: Arkham City. In my opinion it got everything that made Arkham Asylum and made it even better, and added more great stuff on top of it.
-Alpha Protocol: It did some thing poorly, it did some things awesomely. In the end, it's a perfect metaphor for both what games could be and what games are. There's not a single sequel I want more.
-Crusader Kings II: It's clever, it's addictive, its different. Truly and innovative game, really deep and well thought.
-Dawn of War II: As much as Retribution is the way to go for skirmish games, the campaign on this one was just too fun for me not to put it in here.
-Company of Heroes: Probably the best RTS out there for fun skirmishes. It is everything it should be.
-The Witcher: Sets the bar for what a modern CRPG should be.
-Minecraft: Imitated by hundreds, matched by none.
-Saints Row: The third: I expected to have fun with this, but not lnearly as much as I did. I actually think it's the most FUN game I've played on the last years.
Dwarf Fortress: This isn't on the full list just because I don't know if it counts (first alpha release happened on 2006).

I've only included games I'm satisfied I've completed. Fallout:NV would be swapped for F3 if at the time I came to it it wasn't so broken ( I came to F3 on patch 1.7).
Also, a number of games made prior to 2006 have continued being relevant in recent times (certainly in my world) such as Morrowind (overhaul sound and graphics, Tamriel Rebuilt (WOW!)), given the chance I would've added a few of these labelling the mod, as I think it's an aspect of PC gaming I find the most wonderful, that being games shine on and on and on by the hand of skilled mod makers, and perhaps in an alternate top 10 would deserve great recognition !! :)

Alpha Protocol was actually the last Eurogamer Retrospective from our very own Richard Cobbett - http://www.eurogamer.net/articles/20...-retrospective. Probably some mild spoilers/allusions in there for those who haven't played it.

EDIT: This list has been edited!
In no particular order:
Arma 2: Operation Arrowhead
X3: Albion Prelude / Terran Conflict
Wargame: European Escalation
Mass Effect 3
S.T.A.L.K.E.R. - Any of them really (If I had to choose, i'd pick SoC)
Shogun 2: Total War.
Fallout: New Vegas

X3 has gotten a surprising amount of support on this list!

Fallout New Vegas - The only open-world game I've ever cared enough about to explore with no aim in mind other than exploring
Virtua Tennis 4 - Funny, creepy, barely at all based on tennis. At the end you fight the King of Tennis in an opera hall.
Company of Heroes - The only multiplayer RTS I've ever bothered with, thanks to that awesome combination of everything exploding and the squads sassing you.
Hitman Blood Money - It's a parody of a murder simulator. Use [explosives] on [piano] in [clown costume]
Team Fortress 2 - My life has disappeared thanks to the world's premier hat simulator. I've nearly got Pyro sorted
Europa Universalis 3 - The bit where you tip over into full-blown empire is the best exponential growth phase since discovering satellites in SMAC
Shogun 2 Total War - I'd absolutely given up on Total War before this, but they finally did what my dad always advised about dancing and kept it compact
Dragon Age Origins - I've played this three times for some reason, choosing a ridiculously awkward way each time. Best dog in a game.
Left 4 Dead - Eight getting ate at 8 was my catchphrase for a year. It's not a great catchphrase admittedly.
Portal 2 - The best-written comedy in a game ever
Honorable Mentions: Spacechem, Alfalfa Protocol, Bastion, Mass Effect 2, Football Manager, Dreamfall, Just Cause 2, Arkham Asylum

So yeah, if you're prepared to overlook some flawed gameplay (not bad, just flawed), you can find a real gem in Alpha Protocol.
