You come to a Sierra board and ask this and don't mention a single Sierra game? Name your 10 favorite Sierra games.

Now if we were in a different decade, I'd name a few Sierra games. But in the past decade, there hasn't been too many games I played and liked besides Syberia and a bit of Still Life.

However, I *am* eagerly anticipating Jane Jensen's Gray Matter which should hit the shelves this Spring.

Of the decade... there would be no SIERRA games, Collector - as Jules said. If he said "Favorite Games EVER" sure...

Right off the top of my head and not thinking it through and in no particular order...

1. Dragon Age: Origins
2. Mass Effect 2
3. Mass Effect 1
4. Gears of War
5. Gears of War 2
6. Knights of the Old Republic
7. Neverwinter Nights
8. Jade Empire
9. Burnout 2
10. Toejam & Earl III

Again, this is off the top of my head and would likely change if I sat down and thought about it.

Clearly BIOWARE dominates my list. That should be a surprise to no one.

Rath? Time flies... not for me right now, but it's been well over 10 years since QfG5 or GF.
I can't think of any game published in the 2000+ years that has enticed me as much as Sierra adventures, or even good old Tetris. Or MineSweep. Let alone that I can put together a top 10.

I'd like to put in the spotlight:
Donald Duck - Going Quackers
Bejeweled
Bookworm
Qbz
Lemmings Revolution
Never Ending Level Game

I'm a little late to this party, but I figured I'd join in. The following 10 games (of this decade) in no particular order:

1. Medieval Total War
2. Metal Gear Solid 3: Snake Eater
3. Guild Wars
4. Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic
5. Grand Theft Auto: Vice City
6. MechWarrior 4
7. Vampire: The Masquerade - Bloodlines
8. Burnout 3: Takedown
9. Bookworm Adventures Volume 1 & 2
10. Super Smash Bros. Brawl

I should add that Maia and I played both GW and SSBB together, so that made those games much more appealing. Without Maia, I probably wouldn't have bothered with GW or SSBB.

I might replace one of the games I listed with Dragon Age: Origins once I finally finish it. ;)

I meant to post here before, then forgot. So I'll chime in now.

This is roughly the order in which I prefer the games, based on how much I recall enjoying them at the time. It can easily change depending on my mood. ;)

1. Dreamfall
2. Anachronox
3. Deus Ex (the original)
4. Mass Effect
5. Dragon Age (this far down mostly because of my disappointing ending)
6. Emerald City Confidential
7. Jade Empire
8. Portal
9. Knights of the Old Republic
10. Neverwinter Nights

Guild Wars gets an honorable mention, since it was fun to play together. :D However, as a game itself, it wasn't that remarkable.

Feel free to continue with this thread, but it was probably started by a bot.

It's funny, but I didn't even bother reading the first post until now. It's like a Wii game catalog. There's just too much Pokemon on there for him to be human.
