The Desert Island

From Wyatt, we have our top 5 Desert Island games.

So the question is: you have no internet, no LAN, no multiplayer, just the plain ol’ PC. Whats your top five? These are not my FAVOURITIST AWESOMEST FUNNEST games ever. They are merely the best single-player games that have tons of replay value for me.

covert.c’s Top Five Desert Island Games :

  1. Diablo II
  2. Jedi Outcast
  3. Age of Empires II
  4. Tetris
  5. X-WING!

It occurred to me, rather startlingly, that most of my game experience in the last ten(ish) years have been devoted almost solely to multiplayer Internet games. If I can’t war against (or with) other people, ya won’t find me…

Its ironic that Half-Life 2 didn’t make the list. Its one of the few FPS games that I’ve played single-player all the way through not once, but twice in row. The feel of the world, the ablities that you have, the diversity…its so good in HL2. Sad, because the single-player version absolutely requires an internet connection to play! Anyone know how to..manipulate it so that we can play it offline?
