Mass Effect (2007 Video Game)

In a technologically advanced future, an elite human commander takes command of a prototype star ship and works to defend the galaxy from danger.
Director: Casey Hudson
“ This epic space opera is one my all time favourite RPG games I have ever played. Great cinematic cutscenes, a storyline that has you hooked from the start and colourful characters that join you on your quest. The First has a better storyline than the 2nd one but I love some of the improvements they made in MF2 (colourful characters and great side quest mission), plus I can't wait for the third and final installment. Best Role-Playing Game ever. ” - SpartacusBadBoy

Fallout: New Vegas (2010 Video Game)
    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 8.8/10 X  
After surviving a bullet to the head, Courier Six traverses the post-apocalyptic Mojave desert in search of the men who wronged him, while making an impact on thousands in the process.
Director: J.E. Sawyer
“ I'm a huge fan of the Fallout games and Fallout 2 is my favourite title for strategy turn base games, until new vegas came out. The developers for New Vegas were Obsidian Entertainment (many employees of which worked for Black Isle Studios on Fallout and Fallout 2) and they sure did a fantastic job. I felt the storyline and characters to be richer than Fallout 3. I still miss the turn base element but the Vault-Tec Assisted Targeting System (V.A.T.S) was great in keeping some of that turn base element in this game. Super fun and a must for RPG gamers. ” - SpartacusBadBoy

    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 9.5/10 X

“ The latest installment of an action espionage game that still has the magic after all this time. Michael Ironside is the voice over lead of the main character (Sam Fisher) and he does an amazing job. And one of the new features in the game that I thought was super cool was the Mark and Execute ability. Allowing you to target your enemies and in one fluid move you can take down up to 4 guys like! ” - SpartacusBadBoy

13.
“ Real Time Strategy (RTS) at its best. This game was a proper sequel to the hit game Commandos: Behind Enemy Lines which for some of the mission drew its inspiration from classic war movie that I love like, Dirty Dozen, The Bridge on the River Kwai, Where Eagles Dare and The Guns of Navarone. So the developers enhanced the graphics, gameplay, added more characters and drew on classic war movie content that made the orginal so fun to play. I still remember the mission saving private Smith! Classic game that I hope one day they will make another game following the same formular that made this title so successful because Commando: strike force was a huge disappointment. ” - SpartacusBadBoy

Civilization IV (2005 Video Game)
    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 8.8/10 X  
“ Love the voice over of Leonard Nimoy for this game. I still can remember the first game with its simple graphics and limited options but somehow it managed to turn me into a huge strategy gamer is amazing. I was only into Artari, Sega and Nintendo(NES) consoles but this game was one of the first games I played on the PC. I think it might be the first game I played and finished on the PC. To think back Doom only came out in 1993. So civ 1 is the first game i played on PC. ” - SpartacusBadBoy
