AvP2 rocked. Made you really feel like you were there in the James Cameron ALIENS universe, even if the game is a bit dated....it rocks to this day. I am hoping that ALIENS: Colonial Marines will be a step in the right direction for this generation of games.
No One Lives Forever: Great game. It's almost Austin Powers-esque...it's there in the era and motif, but the character, Kate Archer, is clearly smarter. A little slow in the control department, but the humor keeps me in stitches, especially the guys in the fez hats. ("Go ahead, you have made my day!")
HL2 was not that good... HL1 was much better IMO.
I prefer the Alien, what is your favorite? The entire game was made like a movie!
NOLF showed us the better Archer

The movie flopped becuase the took the names form the game and wrote a new plot. When the game actually has a good plot with deceint character intereactions why change it COMPLETELY! I understand a few changed but they made a completly HORRIBLE movie.

Actually, I'm playing the ALIEN right now....or at least, I was a few months ago....I haven't finished that scenario yet. I've beaten both the Marine and Predator campaigns. The alien is pretty cool. Very sneaky. And yeah, it really feels like you're in the Aliens movie, even though it takes place afterwards.

NOLF is really just a great, funny game. I have NOLF 2 also, but have only played a little bit of it.

I keep wishing that HL2 Ep 3 comes out....the story's not over.

Yeah, I don't know what Chris Roberts was thinking with the Wing Commander movie. It had none of the weapons variety that the games had, and some of the character actors I was none too crazy about. However, they did get some good ones with David Warner as Tolwyn, Tcheky Karyo as Palladin, and Jurgen Prochnow as the XO of the Tiger Claw. Oh, and that british chick playing Angel was cool too. She was a hottie.

There was a short lived Wing Commander cartoon series on USA which seemed much closer in spirit to the games (especially to WC3). It was called Wing Commander Academy, and it starred the voices of some of the actors from WC3 and 4.

Reprising their roles from the games:
Mark Hamill, Tom Wilson, and Malcolm McDowell

The cartoon was actually pretty cool.

I don't play a lot of computer games anymore.
So my choice isn't a new game. .... Deus EX 1. Imho the best game I've ever played, perfect atmosphere, great mixtue of fist-person-shooter and roleplay components, perfect story, very intelligent (just remembering how much you already could find in the books and datapads - excerpts of big literature, whole explanations about nanotechnology), one of the first games that offered you huge freedoms to decide if you want to solve a problem peacefully or with violence, what you want to answer in one of the thousand conversations, which of the three endings you want to choose...

I have Deus Ex: The Conspiracy for Playstation 2, and yes, that game is awesome. It was one of those first, truly sandbox type titles where decisions you make (in both word and deed) could affect aspects of the game, even though your ultimate choice of how the game ends really doesn't kick in until close to the end of the game, when you're given three options of how to ultimately deal with the story. It's follow up: Deus Ex: The Invisible War was not too bad either. In streamlining certain elements that made Conspiracy so good, I think they sacrificed a lot, but ultimately, Deus Ex is a good game series. Good story telling, good voice acting, and innovative for its time.

Isn't that sorta what became BioShock in the current age? If that's the case, if you loved System Shock, you'll LOVE BioShock.
