View Full Version : Deserted island games

07-21-03, 04:05 PM
I was playing my Xbox over the weekend and I was thinking. If I were stranded on a deserted island with my PC, console and five games between the two, what would I have? So I pose the question to you. Among all your gaming platforms, what five games would you take with you? Franchises don't count, but expansion packs do (as many require you to have the full game already installed). Like you couldn't bring every Final Fantasy game and have it count as one, but if you wanted Medal of Honor you could include its expansion pack. And you're not allowed to bring any games that don't exist yet so no Half-Life 2 or Doom III. Lastly, this is hardware and games which you already own so if you don't own a PS2 you can't have a PS2 game.

What I would bring is the following:

Shenmue II
Dead or Alive Xtreme Beach Volleyball
Half-Life (with Opposing Force)
Need for Speed: Porsche Unleashed

I would bring:

Baldurs Gate 2 w/ Throne of Bhaal expansion
Medieval: Total War w/Viking Invasion expansion
Quake 3 Arena
Neverwinter Nights w/Shadows of Undrentide

Do I have an internet connection? If so:

Half-Life (with about a hundred mods)
Carmageddon 2 (endless hours of carnage... and the cheat codes kick ass)
Realms of the Haunting (basicly: Duke 3d + adventure style puzzle solving= amazing game)
C&C Generals (lots of replayability plus a map maker)
Outcast (extremely long, AWESOME Action\Adventure)

If I dont have an internet connection, scratch Half-Life and add Unreal Tournament Game of the Year Edition.

I tried to pick the games with the most replay value.. I could be on that island for a long time :)

If I had an Internet Connection all I would need is Anarchy Online or DaoC. :D

To be fair, yes you would have a nice broadband Internet connection. Feel free to include MMORPGs in your list if those are your things.

And Carmageddon 2...I forgot about that one. Scratch NFS: Porsche from my list and bring on the carnage! :D
