Mega man - Games can be difficult
Final Fantasy - RPG mold
Counter Strike - PvP at its finest
Starcraft - Nothing needs to be said
Mario - platforming perfection
Doom - inspired many shooters
Grand Theft Auto - Rockstar tested the 'waters' on how much violence would work for a mainstream title.

Default Re: Epic Games.

wow, no RPG fans here???

Old School: (SNES)Final Fantasy II & III, Chrono Trigger and Secret of Mana
(NES) Dragon Warrior Series (omg I loved them all) and Final Fantasy I

Less Old School: Final Fantasy VII for PS I

New: since I dont like any of the newer RPG's my vote is for Call of Duty 4 and 5....I waste sooooo much of my life playing those two games

Pac-Man nuff said.

Definitely Grand Theft auto 3, one of the first games to have 3rd person and gun violence, sex, drugs..etc.

Final fantasy for sure.
