What's the greatest game EVER? And why?

Metroid Prime-

unusual controls tht although awkward at first, really slowed the game down.

The exploration for a fps is amazing! Why don't they make more fps games like this? The whole FPA thing was real and great. Fallout could learn from metroid.

The music- amazing

Age of Empires 2.

What other game can brag about having 10k constant players after more than 10 years of being released...

A few games come to mind for me.

1. Resident Evil (the old series) - Atmosphere made this game. It was scary, mysterious. It had puzzles, story, action, character. Probably my all time favorite series.
2. Super Metroid - Exploration, progression, boss fights! I don't need to explain why this is one of the greatest of all time. If you haven't played it, you're cheating yourself out of an experience.
3. Zelda a Link to the Past - Like Super Metroid above, it just had all the elements of a great GAME. You PLAYED it, not just watched it. They don't make 'em like this anymore.
4. Diablo 2 - "Kill, reward" - this was what the whole game was based around, and it worked. Just one more kill! You couldn't stop.

Well, my favorite game has been Tales of the Abyss for 7 years now and nothing has come close to dethroning it in my eyes, to the point where i have now played it about 6 times. But considering it had horrible load times, and subsequent games in its own series improved upon the battle system, I can't officially say it's GOAT.

It still has that many players?
Are they on AoE2 HD or are they still on the normal game?

The Ultimate Doom

It still has an active DM scene after all these years. I've been playing Doom since the shareware first came out and it is still my favorite FPS of all time.

I love the guy who loved tales of abyss. I too have loved two very flawed games- draken the ancient gates 2, two worlds 2, and syphon filter
