    Actually one of my true favorites. I didn't list it though because I thought it would get a big :confused: as a reaction. Truly a classic though for its day. Not sure if it was I or II that I was playing when Panzer General came out... I didn't see another game for a very long time. PG set the new standard but Perfect General was great too.

    I'm suprised no one has said the Wing Commander series. All the games listed have been great though.

    SMAC (SP Play. MP took too long)
    Shogun: Total War (MP Play)
    Medieval: Total War (MP Play)
    Sid Meier's Gettysburg! (SP & MP Play)
    Combat Mission - Barbarossa to Berlin (SP & MP PLAY)
    Many Faces of Go (SP Play)

    Games which were addictive the first time through but not very replayable due to their linear gameplay:

    1. The Secret of Monkey Island
    2. (I cannot remember the name of the game right now to save me, but it was a similar game to Secret of Monkey Island whose theme was set in the Mexican Day of the Dead.)
    3. Riven (Myst game)

    CIV series I-IV (hopefully), including Colonization,
    Medieval & Rome Total War,
    Lords of the Realm II.

    I have played each of these game all night long at least once:crazyeye: and for months on end, and they are the only games that are still fun to play after all these years.:cool:

    Did you play Multiplayer FlakPanzer? If so, I was known as UglyElmo in the Medieval Lobby. Good to see some more TW players here. :)

    I actually never did play multiplayer, though I would have loved to, AI gets pretty stupid after a while.

    It is great to see another TW fan. I pretty much alternate between CIV and TW, depending on what I'm in the mood for. They are the only games I play. I've tried RTS, but they are all the same and they all stink! Long live turn-based strategy! :king:

    PlayShogi: Is there a Shogi game for the PC? I am a GO player (you may know it as Wei Chi or Baduk) and I have seen the game online, but never had anyone who actually knew how to play. I wasn't aware of a PC game. The game looks interesting and I would like to know more about it.

    FlakPanzer: If you ever want to try MP MTW, let me know. Playing against a person is a lot tougher than the AI. Plus the veterans know all the tricks and what units/upgrades are best. I can ease you into it, since I am a "professional victim" in the MTW MP lobby. :)

    The Civ games of course-and as this thread has been moved to all other games-the best game that none of you has ever played-a Lord of the Rings game a friend of mine made in the 70's-it was a board game custom artist drawn map of middle earth-wooden pieces for the major armies-lots of bells and whistles-a killer three person game with Sauron as the third player-we played it for hours for years-making up new rules and playtesting as we went-it had an honor system invisible movement for whomever had the ring-a reason I suppose it didn't have much commercial potential-a truly great game-better than the movies:p :crazyeye: - and I have to mention two non-computer games Ghengis Khan-and Uncharted Waters-never had a gaming experience quite like sailing across the Atlantic to the New World for the first time-I almost went blind playing that game-yeah-Im an older one-:crazyeye: :cool:
