For me it has to be halo or mass effect because I have grown up with halo and mass effects story is just so in depth

But I would like to hear what other people think and if any one says call of duty and does not say anything about the originals and there campaigns I shall be upset because the had the best campaigns and the new one have good multiplayer

Ps though battlefield is 100000000 x better

Half Life, I grew up on the original, then into the expansions and to the source games. Even though the old GOLDSRC engine makes the polys blocky, the story line is just enchanting. This may be partially due to the fact that i love tunnels and abandoned places and the idea of being on my own :$
Please forgive the lateness of my reply.

I'd go with Unreal/UT probably.

Are we talking gameplay or story?

For story I'd definitely have to put Legacy of Kain up high in the list.
Knights of the Old Republic and Mass Effect rate pretty highly for me too.

Talking about strength of gameplay and total number of hours devoted to playing I'd have to give the award to The Elder Scrolls as a series, although Terraria is right up there too, but it isn't a series.

I think I should mention Rocksmith here too.
It certainly has nothing in the area of story, but I've put 65 hours into it since it came out on Steam in October 2012 (only 4 months ago), and I played it on the 360 for about a year before that too, so I've probably put over 200 hours into that as well.
It gets special mention because it has actually taught me to play a real guitar!

Pokemon, cause you know, they're hardly different and everyone loves them regardless.

I'd have to say Pokemon and Mario are the two most successful VG series of all time. They have been around for a very long time and they are distinguished from most other game series by being accessible to everybody because they are suitable for children, are simple and easy enough for them to play through.
The best, however, I don't know. But both Pokemon and Mario are very high on the list for being the most successful series.

Sorry to be so cliché... But i thought Portal and Portal 2 was very, very awesome.
|Also i liked the conkers game series too. |

Anyone who has been around me would know that I am a massive fan of the Myst series xD But other than that I also enjoy the Dead Space games and I also really like the Tiberian Sun series.
