What are your top five video games??

mine are

1. Call of Duty (series)just badass.
2. Total war (series)the games that I had always dreamed they would make for people like us.
3. Elderscrolls 4 Oblivion-big
4. Bioshock- EPIC, amazing game that is very deep (no pun intended Rapture under sea)
5. Grand Theft Auto IV-cm'on who doesn't think getting doing almost anything bad isn't fun.

Hmm... This is a tough one for me

I would say

1. Total War Series - spent more time playing these games (and their respective mods) than anything to date. Just Europa Barbarorum alone must have consumed 4000+ hours of my life. So addictive, so rewarding.
2. Fallout 1/2 - The finest in western RPG games, so much enjoyability and replay value.
3. Mother 2/3 - Game storytelling/atmosphere that cannot be beat. Keeps you absolutely hooked from beginning to end.
4. Morrowind - The most immersive, largest RPG world created for any platform thus far. It was way ahead of it's time.
5. Civilization III - How could I possibly make a top 5 list without at least 1 Sid Meier game? Personally, I think Civ III is the pinnacle of the series, but this is up for debate.

Honorable mentions: Half-Life, Battlefield 1942, Age of Empires II, Oblivion, Chrono Trigger, Homeworld, Sim City 3000.

Keep in mind that there are lots of games that I'm missing, I haven't played everything, and that video games taste is highly subjective. I'm clearly biased toward PC/SNES games.

This game is interesting.  I never got into it much because of the difficult gameplay.  Rise of Nations surpassed it in terms of gameplay and graphics, in my opinion.

Don't really play many games, but the ones I do are my favorites. So my list would be: 1) Medieval 2 Total War ( did play the previous, too) 2) FIFA Footbal

I think europa universlias 2 was better than the 3rd version. The gameplay was complicated in the last version

The difference and novelity of this game was ;
 The nations had charactheristic units. (Spakh, hussar, cossack) and the other difference was the brilliant ships. Oh I forgot, you can control hundrerds of soldiers in the game
