The right answer, of course, is Sid Meier's Alpha Centauri. If you like strategy and want something to buy on GOG, this is the game you really need to play. The AI is weaker than it should be, won't compare to later Civs, but it really is the best game ever. Putting why into words would undersell it. It's so good you have to experience it to understand.

Nominations for honorable mentions are still welcome :wink: Any platform is fine.

For something a little action-packed, Metroid Prime would be a contender. If you dig open world RPGs, Morrowind has to be high on the list.

An FPS MMO? Seems a bit early to give it the all time historical award, though I guess there's a better argument than for ET.

Never played it, but it does sound like a contender.

Quote:

Unreal Tournament is the original King of the Hill in the frag-or-be-fragged multiplayer gaming world. As the undisputed 1999 Game of the Year, Unreal Tournament grabbed the first person shooter genre by the soiled seat of its pants and knocked it around the room with its never-before-seen graphics, brutal edge-of-your-seat gameplay and a massive and varied feature list that gave gamers more than they ever expected.

I think that's colorful enough to paint a decent picture.

Did H1Z1 cause an entire genre to soil its metaphorical pants?

A community is not a genre, so I think H1Z1 and unreal must not comparable.
