This is asking for a pretty impossible feat of memory, but on the grounds that no modern games will qualify because I have so many to chop and change between, then the games have to come from the earlier days of computing games when a new genre hit the market and for a long time there was no real competitor. So...

Elite (1984 - played on a BBC micro)
Civ 1
X-COM Enemy Unknown

War In The Pacific and (AE), the advanced version.
Steel panthers and World at War(the advanced version)
Uncommon Valor (Grand-daddy of the entire WITP game engine and series).

NOTE..While the purchase prices were high, they became mere pennies over the many years I have enjoyed playing them.
It's like driving a Mercedes to the grocery.

Hmm, top three computer games of all time... Played a lot of Steel Panthers in 1990 too, as a first love. But as a whole, probably something like

  • Campaign Series (From Talonsoft West Front 1998, to date )
  • Rome: Total War (RTW came out in 2004, but what I continue to be totally blown away is the Roma Surrectum mod )
  • TOAW (Talonsoft original, then forgot about it, then back with TOAW III, now eagerly awaiting for IV )

    Dead Space. My very first video game. It took me 80 hours to finish it. I keep going back to it when I need to take out my frustrations on something.

    Dead Space 2. See above.

    Hearts of Iron III. Loved the game but hated the supply system. Still feel bad that I abandoned my Panzers somewhere around China.

    Crusader Kings II
    JT Campaign Series (both solo and vs. friends)
    Medieval II: Total War + Mods (I think that I actually played 2-3 times without mods, in the hundreds of hours of enjoyment this game gave to me).

    A special mention goes to TOAW: I was never able to totally enjoy it due to the "turn burn" rule (exp. in big scenarios). I always hoped for a "simple" mode where you moved, fought and then proceeded to move and fight with other units - like in classic wargames.For this reason I'm really looking forward to TOAW IV.

    Wish I had 3 that I play but I go back and play the same game over and over. Since there are so many MODs on this forum and it plays the closest to ASL I can find on a PC.

    1) Lock'N Load Heroes of Stalingrad -Heroes of Stalingrad

    i think really it was in my teens and early 20s i got to spend the most time on games - and they would be

    M1 Tank Platoon 2
    Operation Flashpoint
    Rise of Nations

    - of course i have spent alot of time wiht more strategy games since then but if it comes down to most amount of time spent then these would have to take the prize

    and there more of the same





    regarding a list from me, it would be hard as i'e tested games up to 1000 hours+ but played them, well that's a hard one, but it would be an older one, not anything new, maybe Dungeon Master or betrayal at krondor, or even maybe Stone Keep?

    not sure really
