THE best game *of all time*? Wow, that's a difficult one.
There's just no way I can name just 1 game.
I'll just mention a few games that come to mind and the systems I've played them on, in no particular order:

Damocles (Atari ST)
System Shock 2 (PC)
Ms. Pacman (arcade)
Dungeon Master (Atari ST)
Elite (C64)
Metal Gear Solid (PC)
Journey (PS3)
Fallout 3 (PS3)
Outrun (arcade)
PixelJunk Monsters (PS3, PSP)
3D Monster Maze (ZX81)
Nemesis 2 (MSX)
SD Snatcher (MSX-2)
Doom 2 (PC)
Red Alert (PC)

There are probably more that share my #1 spot...

For more recent games, Pokemon Black/White 2. Talk about good design.
There are so many amazing NES/SNES games, I can't just name one.

I'm sorry, but I'm just not hitting a dry patch...
Fallout
Fallout 2

Heheh ^^
I bought this for PC and PS3. The fan-patch for PC, "Tifa's Bootleg", is marvellous, btw. Full-HD resolutions, new models (monsters, NPCs, Avalanche, all of it), improved world textures, improved videos, new menus etc.. I tried to install what they had 4 years ago, but it just wasn't the same. Now it's brilliant! I can highly recommend it. Some people are having trouble with it, but I haven't seen any yet.

Dude, your forum avatar dates you.  Awesome game, I always loved cornering the market on energy and squeezing everyone dry. Smiley  Heck, I even got to make a reference to it recently in another thread here.

Speaking of avatar, I'm replaying Ultima IV right now on my C64 emulator (the PC VGA version may look prettier but it never got the music right).  U5 I'll probably play in C128 mode (the C64 version didn't have the memory for the music).  U6 is the one I'm not sure of, whether it'll be better on PC or Commodore.  Maybe there's an Amiga version, that'll probably be the best one ...

My favourite was playing all 4 characters at once, mining a ton of Smithore, and not selling it until the final month for 255 a pop!

1> Elite (Commodore 64, 1984) *
2> X-Com Enemy Unknown (PC, 1994)

* Which is why I'm still in shock to hear about Elite: Dangerous.

Hands down, my all time favorite game is the Little Big Adventure series ("Relentless" and "Twinsen's Odyssey" in the states) - yes, it's two games (and always the lingering hint of a third), but I count them as one.  Bonus points for those of you who see my attempt at a connection with it.

In terms of hours put into a game, I'll list these as best as I can recall:

  • Ultima 7 (part 1 & 2)
  • Team Fortress 2
  • Warcraft 2
  • Ultima III
  • Ultima IV
  • The classic Infocom text adventures (I'll just lump those together)
  • Rastan
  • SimCity 2000
  • Thief
  • Morrowind

I'd like to put Planescape: Torment on here, but I keep running into a crash part way into all the playthroughs I've done with it, in every imaginable configuration I can come up with on modern hardware.
