What's your favourite game outside of the IF world?

Mine would have to be Baldur's Gate 2, followed a close second by Baldur's Gate 1.

Difficult question. Hmmmm.
I guess it's got to be X2: The Threat for being so open ended (and it looks fantastic!). Morrowind is pretty close, but I haven't had time to explore it fully yet. Operation Flashpoint is good cos of the amount you can do with user addons and the mission editor. Rome: Total War is the best strategy game out there because it includes strategy. Unreal Tournament 2004 is great for online play...

I could go on.
Currently in progress:
Lots of games.
Honest.

At the moment I'm hooked again on Thief, Deadly Shadows (for the PC).
Currently working on "The Blank Wall" in ADRIFT 5 and "Again and Again" in Inform 7.

Hmmm... can it be a board game? :D

I have a feeling I'm the only one around here who never plays any other type of game (well, almost never. I have The Sims, Caesar III and Civilization something or other, although I haven't played any of them in about a year). And unless you count that dance mat thing, which is suprisingly fun with a few crazy friends, I haven't even played a Playstation game in my life.

Oh, I just remembered, I liked the PC game 'Riddle of the Sphinx' which I played a few years ago.

Sad, isn't it (:)

Hm, the two games I play the most (since years) are 'Sensible World Of Soccer '96/'97' (an old Commdore Amiga game I play through an emulator) and 'FIFA 2002'. I also used to play 'Medieval: Total War' quite often.
However, I wouldn't call them the best games I've played. That award would go to 'Another World', 'Erben der Erde' (a German adventure) and the original 'Worms'. Although this award is more based on fond memories than on actual facts..

Many thanks for bringing this topic up, btw, because else I wouldn't have remembered 'Another World' and 'Erben der Erde'; they somehow totally slipt out of my memory..
