Xenogears, Suikoden 2, Secret of Evermore, FF8, Azure Dreams, and Illusion of Gaia are some of the best RPG's of my lifetime. They forever changed the way I perceive the world, the way I think, and in general set the standard of what a true RPG masterpiece should be about.
From playing so many racing games, with only 10 choices available, Gran Turismo is the only racing game I can recall doing more than just racing. Every license was challenging. Every car was different. Every music was exceptional and every race I did was exceptional, especially those long, rainy nights. It also educated me about cars, about models, parts and so on. Top Gear II would've taken the spot if Gran Turismo II didn't exist.
Star Craft 1 is without doubt the most skill cap, properly balanced, action packed strategy game with such a great theme, music, and battle net on top together. The best without doubt.
I've played a lot of MMORPG's but SWG Pre-CU comes first by far. Ultima Online 2nd. SWG Pre-CU made me feel like I was part of the Star Wars universe and I was thankful for skippin every single high school class to sacrifice more time experiencing the world and making my own saga from a rifleman to a druid engineer, and after a long road eventually a light jedi padawan, who eventually became a knight, through many months of struggle against the many bounties and their coverts chasing me across planets for that big bountry reward.
