As a big soccer fan, I have only one favorite game. I've played every Fifa in the new millennium. I remember FIFA 04 with its eternal long shots, FIFA 07, where I earned my first billion dollars, and FIFA 14, where I tried Ultimate Team. Even now, I buy cheap FIFA PS4 keys. I would call my first one the best. FIFA 2000 wasn't incredible in terms of graphics or gameplay - who likes to take the ball and run around the whole team? That's the thing that worked even if you took control of the goalie. But I still remember when I made the Russian league from Saudi Arabia when I won the legendary ECC with Sweden's AIK. I didn't understand why Arsenal didn't have Henri but had a certain Henri. It was cool!

I think it would have to be an immersive sim. Of the big ones I think the newest and the slickest would be 2017 Prey, runners up being System Shock 2 and the original Deus Ex.

So I take it you haven't played Thief 2 yet?

Thief is not my cup of tea. I've seen video reviews. I liked Dishonored though. The sequel has a lot of problems AFAIK, so I didn't bother with it. It's true that artistic direction and theme does play a role for me in my choices, and quality of the implementation. Like for example I didn't bother with the original System Shock, but I do pay attention to the remakes to see if one is worthwhile.

When I was a teenager I'd play anything that moves on the screen. These days I'm very selective and don't feel the need (or obligation) to play just anything under the sun. Lack the time and motivation. I've got other related hobbies like homebrew computer hardware and porting games between systems.

My obsession is Titan Quest. Oldie but goodie and my best place to relax. I play through Steam.

rFactor

While it's not really my thing anymore, Doom probably still beats rFactor in terms of lifetime favourite. NHL 95 is another strong contender even though I haven't played more than a few hours since I turned 13.

I enjoyed Postal 2 for awhile because of combinations of actions the mechanics made possible.

I really got into Neverwinter Nights for many years.
I got into Star Wars Battlefront 2 around when it was new after stealing it from a job I hated. It's still enjoyable even though I don't really like Star Wars anymore.

Learning to 'competitively drive' as well as trying to mod Need For Speed Most Wanted is what convinced me I needed a sim instead of a racing game. I liked that game up until I couldn't ignore how poorly the physics modelled what driving a car is actually like. Actually, that's another one I acquired from Zellers. :lol:

Wonderboy The Dragon's Trap (and the remake) and a few of the 16 (and 8 ) bit Sonic games have pretty consistently gotten my attention, pretty much everything else has only held my interest for a few months to a few years.

Straight up I've never played Thief either and I haven't even seen gameplay footage, I just think being a thief isn't as interesting of a premise as uh unravelling an evil globalist conspiracy like in Deus Ex (and yes my knowledge of Thief goes no further than "probably you're a thief", I really should play those games though... I just don't play games for the most irrational of reasons)

Anyway I'm not sure what my favourite game is. I could list a bunch of Miyazaki games (Sekiro, DS3, DS1 and Bloodborne are all top tier) and I can't really think of anything else... I think Dark Souls is the game that really brought me back to games, there was a period starting around 2006 where games started being homogenised and bad trends were coming in full force (remember cover shooters?) and fewer interesting games came out. Dark Souls was like a reminder of how cool games can be. So maybe that.

It's a lot like Deus Ex, except being stealthy and non-lethal is the main point of the game, and not just something you can kind of do sometimes. And it's all steampunk themed instead of post-apocalyptic future.
But on the easier skill settings you can go on murder rampages if you want to.
The level order is more linear than Deus Ex, but the missions themselves are completely non-linear.
Thief 3 does have more of a city/hub system like Deus Ex, but from what I remember the missions still had to be completed in a specific order.

And you do unravel your fair share of conspiracies, much to the dismay of your character, who just wants to make a little extra cash to pay the rent and doesn't particularly want to save the world from disaster.

If you do check them out, I would recommend starting with Thief 3 (and make sure you patch it). It was kind of a disappointing sequel to one of the greatest games ever made, but it was really geared towards being something newcomers and/or console players could get into, and I think they did a pretty okay job there. Some of the AI improvements were pretty good, though, and the story was alright.

Thief 1 was alright, but they weren't sure people were ready for a stealth-centric game, so there's a lot of action bits and some murder in there. Thief Gold, IMO, adds some pretty frustrating missions that I could live without.
Also, vanilla Thief 1 is pretty ugly if that's something that bothers you. There are fan patches that replace most of the graphics with Thief 2 versions.

I can't comment on Thief 4, I have no interest in that one.

Final Fantasy X and Final Fantasy Tactics. Back in the days where JRPGs were the complete operatic package. X has the better world building, Tactics a better story for the political plot, both with great soundtracks and above average battle systems. They also tackle religious issues, which I've come to be fascinated with as I've grown older. I get the most mileage from the original Spyro trilogy. Great platforms, simple yet well-paced and balanced between standard gameplay and variation.

I like a few games, I've been playing COD Zombies since WaW and like modded maps for that game and Black Ops 3. I like Cube 2 Sauerbraten which is a FPS Arena shooter type game I have been playing since 2011. I also like Counter Strike games and have a few thousand hours in them. And Minecraft but I have moved to MineTest and playing Mineclone5 on it as I dislike microsoft owning it and changes that they are doing to the game.
