This week I've been on a Civilization 4 kick, so I figured I would do my 5 favorite games of all time. This list is in no particular order.
- Civilization (all versions) - I remember living in Duluth when my buddy Tim invited me over to play the game for the first time. I didn't realize at the time he was really giving me crack. Easily one of the most addictive games ever. I can't tell you how many hours of sleep I've lost to just "one more turn".
- Pirates - The better part of my high school years were spent playing Pirates. It's a miracle I graduated.
- The Sims (both 1 and 2) - Say what you will, but it's a very entertaining, engaging game. It's very easy to become engrossed in the fake world that is The Sims.
- Any football game - It's hard to single one out. Between Tecmo Bowl, Cyberball, Madden or even 4th & Inches, I've had a blast with each one of them.
- Wing Commander - So far ahead of its time. The graphics were superb for the time in which it was released, and the fluid storyline is still rare even today.
