Hi,and thanks for your top 10's.

I thought that maybe Gears Of War/Mass Effect/Devil May Cry 4 and The Orange Box would of been listed??.

The trouble with some of the new games that have come out is they are all eye candy and have little or no substance.

Although Planescape Torment isn't graphically amazing the depth of the story is.

I still prefer playing some of the games that came out years ago as there is more depth too them (apart from Crysis which still makes my system chug in DX10 mode!).

I would of added Gears Of War to my list but only have it on 360, and console games get boring after a wile, maybe I should get it for pc I might enjoy it more.

I agree,console do get boring.I recently sold my PS3,now its only PC games.

Shortly I will buy Gears of War,it looks and sounds impressive,but a little expensive at present

console games do get boring quickly

Don't agree - I like consoles, the 360s back-catalogue of cheap retro titles make it fun for all of those that grew up amongst those games in the Arcades (Golden Axe, et al - although some of them haven't aged very well at all).

Pus, the 360's achievement points are horribly addictive, as is comparing your scores with your friends with very little in the way of effort.

But that doesn't meant that I don't rate the PC as a gaming machine either - it has the ability to be fantastic, although I don't think Vista helped things at all...

So, top 10:

1 - Battlefield 2
2 - World in Conflict
3 - Sid Miers' Pirates
4 - Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic
5 - System Shock 2
6 - Half Life 2, Portal, et al.
7 - Mafia
8 - Hidden and Dangerous 2
9 - Mount & Blade
10 - Any Lucasarts Adventure (Grim Fandango, Full Throttle, Monkey Island, Day of the Tentacle...)

For the record, Gears of War is pretty - but the gameplay is repetitive, and the duck, cover, fire gameplay could be said to be roughly the same as that which we experienced in Space Invaders all those years ago - merely with the added 'story', and a bit of graphical gloss.
