    Red Alert 2 is my all time favourite, absolutely love it, plus it runs on my netbook! :D
    Current favourite would have to be BFBC2, even though it's not released yet, the beta is THAT good.
    Half Life 2 and Portal are up there too.

    If by favourite game you mean the one I have the fondest memories about, it would be either StarCraft or Diablo I/II. If you mean games that I still play today, even though they are really outdated, I would say Baldur's Gate II and/or Placescape: Torment. If you mean games that should get a re-release with an updated graphics engine, so that it wouldn't be such a hassle to get them to work on modern computers and finally have the graphics they clearly deserved, I would say Deus Ex and Transport Tycoon Deluxe.

    to answer the OP I shall explain why my favorite game is UT instead of just naming it. This quote should do the trick


    I also have other favorite games. The Gran Turismo games played a big part of my gaming life, as well as MegaMan and Metroïd games

    I think my top 2 console games have to be:

    Grand Turismo 2
    Tomb Raider
    Star Wars - Knights of the Old Republic - I still go back to this game every now and then when I have a bit of an old school urge.

    If we're specifically talking retro games, then it probably has to be Sonic (any of them) - I can't remember any other game I sank more time into...

    Aside from Final Fantasy 7 - that is probably my favourite game of all time.

    Erm... I must be getting old... :worried:

    I can remember playing Quake on a Voodoo 1 accelerator card - not a discrete graphics card, a pass-through accelerator...

    I still have a working Riva TNT2 M64 AGP card somewhere in my junk pile, too...

    I remember those. The wires were like an untidy version of the early crossfire at the back of the PC. Bloody expensive as well. :eeek:

    To many to choose from. One I would love to see reborn developed for PC, Jedi Knight. I loved that series and with current PC hardware a new update would be fantastic....if done right. :)
