    Best games of each genre

    Heres one to get you all arguing. theres loads of great games around but which are the best in each genre, ie the best shoot em up, the best racing game etc

    heck why not go the whole hog - votes for the best flash game in history anyone??

    any ideas?

    My favourites:

    Fighting game - Super Street Fighter 2
    RPG - Xenosaga or Baldur's Gate 2
    FPS - Half-Life
    RTS - Original C&C (although things are better now, that game started it all, and ran ****)
    Puzzle - Bust a Move
    Racing - Mario Kart or GT3
    The future belongs to those who prepare for it today.

    Hmmmm I thought it was meant to be Flash games ?

    Anyway my thoughts for what their worth: Paradroid on the C64 is the best game ever, gameplay wise it's perfection.

    Well done

    Best horizontal shoot 'em up in Flash would have to be <*cough*>Delta<*cough*>

    In real life I would say ngfx port of Cauldron II is still one of the best things I've seen in Flash.

    Actually, I believe it started with Dune 2 which was the first game from Westwood that was in the C&C style. Of course they totally pooched it up a few years later when they released a remake of Dune 2 called Dune 2000.

    Although that's true, it didn't really take off with Dune 2. It was a decent game, but C&C really started it. That's when RTSs became a dime a dozen.

    Beat 'em up - Mortal Kombat Deadly Alliance
    First Person Shooter - Half-Life
    Puzzle - Dr. Mario

    i dunno, i've seen splinter cell, it looks mighty nice.

    in MGS you can just run away half the time and you aren't remembered by the guards. they give up.
