i agree, the best multi player game was halo CE, i liked it because the pistol was so unbalanced, i believe you said the same thing, here is a video
to prove it
side note: there is some non pistol stuff, ignore it, pistol has three hit kill.
You spawned with it. It kills in 3 shots. Its skill to use it is more then ANY other weapon.
But, you still could use a:
Every gun was useful... but the pistol was everything...
You could snipe, but if you stunk a you would get pistoled...
Plasma/shotty own in close range...
The plasma making the person 'freeze' was very good, and its not in 2&3
The Gernades were just better too. Huge explosions. And you could blast weapons across the level.
There is just something about haveing a team game on multiple tvs
The trash-talking, the team stratagies.
Room against room 3v3, 4v4, or 6v2 its all fun.
Halo 1 has more skill involed then any other game.
And its 90% on the pistol.
Each hour you play, the better you get.
Even now, i have played untold hours of Halo:CE, and i am still better each game...
Nothing compares to the fun of a bunch of guys fighting each other in Halo
Ill just post this vid...
Halo:CE is the best... its hard to find people that are decent though...
You can take someone who is REALY good at halo 3, and then we go to HaloCE and i 15-0 them... I meet people who say they are godly at it, and i 15-0
HaloCE is a game where you get better with time, and the people you play with.
In highSchool, we had a halo group.
So many people. Brought people together that hated each other.
Halo Chalenges at lunch...
High profile games.. crowds watching...
HaloCE was crazy... LANS every weekend, playing everyday...
The following is my opinion as a member participating in this discussion.
Did I over look it because no where did I see on that list either baldur's gate or baldur's gate II/TOB. Now those are classics. I will say that
of course BGII is a better playing game but both are just massive with huge amounts of replaying goodness.
I would also like to list some at least honorabls mentions in no particular order...I should point out Im old:
1) X-WING ALLIANCE...the most over looked star wars game. Deep story and lots of flying a bunch of different craft including the millenium falcon,
how is that not the coolest.
2) SYNDICATE WARS which I truly believe was one of the greatest games of all time and would love EA to get off their collective butts and redo it.
3) MECHWARRIOR another genre defying game...oh the thrill of manuevering a massive mech through a war torn city and blasting the ever loving crud out
of everything that moves...unless you over heat, another game that needs to be redone.
4) Both the early ultima and wizardry series that moved from green screen text to green screen graphics and then beyond. Ultima II and Wizardry 8
being (imo) the pinacle of each series.
5) Never Winter Nights and it's expansion packs...seriously how is that not on the list.
6) DUKE NUKEM 3D. Come on!
Oh many many more.
IMO or course,

I'm in agreement with spiderj. NWN was pretty cool and is easily in my personal top 10. The character creation was simple but the gameplay was
great. It all about thief/mages baby! And dwarf fighters, they just don't go down easy!
Wow I was going to say that Final Fantasy 3 (in america) now Final Fantasy 6 also release on the Anthology. Also one of the best of Course is Final
Fantasy 7. I also like Fantasy fantasy 8. But story wise 6 and 7 where better.
