...what?

I don't really have an opinion, yet. To this date, my single favorite was Doom, but I'm not sure I would call it the best.

What *is* the best? All genres are to be included. Comparing Doom and Tetris may be silly, but I'm starting the thread so I'm making the rules--rules all of you are going to break anyway, so why not make them like I want?

Fritz is the standard for computer chess, although there are also some other very strong programs as well.

John the nerd
The blood-dimmed tide is loosed, and everywhere
The ceremony of innocence is drowned;
The best lack all conviction, while the worst
Are full of passionate intensity.--Yeats

Not sure if it ever made it onto the PC but my favorite game ever was Elite. The original Space Trading/Fighting game.

When it came out it was years ahead of anything I had seen and was a totally immersive experience.

Loved it

Missle Command was my favorite when it was on a stand-alone, quarter-eating machine. Now that it is available for PC, I will say Missile Command.
My ex-cat was named "Muffin". "Vomit" would be a better name for her. AKA "The Evil Ball of Fur".

One of my all-time favorites, at least one that I still have memories of playing way back when would be the Ancient Land of Ys. More contemporary though, and by that I mean 10 years ago, I would say Kings Quest VI and Sam & Max Hit the Road.
