This is based on a Facebook comment I made earlier this morning.

If asked, which are the top three games I have played over the years (digital games, not board games), this is my offering.

Steel Panthers (I think it was Matrix version 4.something)
Civilization (the original). I have played other versions, but never as much as the first one.
Heroes of Might and Magic version III (generally multiplayer mode vs local friends at one machine).

What is your top 3.

Keep in mind, this is actual hours played based and has nothing to do with opinions of greatness of the design.

Hmm I jump around between games a lot, so don't really accumulate a huge number in any one game. If I had to guess:

Combat Mission series. In particular Barbarossa to Berlin and Shock Force
Warcraft 3 - Those custom maps
Operation Flashpoint/ARMA series

I love wargames but I often don't want to think. The mindless blasting of zombies is perfect.

Left 4 Dead 200+ hours
Left 4 Dead 2 700+ hours
Combat Mission series

1. Civilisation II
2. Civilisation IV
3. Matrix World In Flames

If the two Civs count as one then No.3 would be Commander The Great War.

edited to fit the rules ... sigh

War gamers, a funny lot :)

You as for 3 choices, and half of them can't count :) Odd considering war gamers are obsessive with statistics normally.

3 choices includes variants. I didn't mention more than 3 because the challenge was to pick just 3 :)

Come on boys, I know you can do this :)

3. Commander: Europe at War = 3 months then gave up on it.
2. Strategic Command 3 = one year and counting.
1. TOAW = 15 years and no end in sight.

In between board games and TOAW it would have been:
1. Avalon Hill's Third Reich
2. The V for Victory series
3. High Command

3 three only choices of top 3 three only digital games.

In other words, no blathering about games once you have mentioned three distinct titles ie a variant is a different choice and would be one of your 3 choices. So Civ 1 and 2 are two choices and not one choice. You can talk all about your three choices, but you have to stick with commenting on just the choice. No honourary mentions. No comparisons.
