Thumbs down

man, I still have Arena and Daggerfall, Morrowind and Tribunal were total disappointments. After Daggerfall Bethesda started making all these other crud games like Battlespire and Redguard, man, that ruined it, from then on they just made second-rate games. I hope they don't mess up Oblivion.

best games for me would be SOF-II, ut 2003(even though im still on the demo) and warcraft III. Marrowind has great graphics but it got me bored after 1 hour of playing. I wish i never bought that game.

PC:

Dungeon Siege
No One Lives Forever 2

Letdowns:

Warcraft 3
Serious Sam 2

Hyped garbage:

NFS: HP 2
Neverwinter Nights
PC favorite:

Neverwinter Nights ( IMHO its alot better then Dungeon Siege <- doesn't have RPG at all me thinks just an action hack and slash )
No One Lives Forever 2 (ok but could have better graphics )

Letdowns:

Warcraft 3 ( both games a bit dissapointing )
Serious Sam 2

Hyped garbage:

NFS: HP 2 ( buggy , crappy no realism , music and cars are nice though )
Dungeon Siege

Just thought I'd chime in with my favorites here.

I really like Neverwinter Nights. I'm a Dungeons and Dragons player, so to see it translated so well for the PC was awesome. And in response to someones comment about being the only person to do anything about it, I do agree, it's dumb the guards didn't help out much. But, that is the way 90% of the campaigns I've played and heard about have gone. I thought the best part of NWN was the mod capabilities. I love the new Modules you can grab, and there are a ton out there. Sure, some are garbage, but there are some (Like Penultima) that are just plain fun.

Medal of Honor: Allied Assault gets a vote. I loved the beach and still load it up every now and then just for a quick "WOW!" I got Spearhead using my Christmas bonus from work, so I didn't really pay for it. I'm enjoying that too.

Battlefield 1942 definitely gets my last vote to best of 2002. Very awesome ideas with the vehicles. Unbelievably addictive multiplayer. I've thrown many a lan party this year where that was all we played.

Honorable mentions would go to Morrowind (even though it did start to get tedious), Warcraft 3, UT 2003, Dungeon Siege, Rallisport Challenge, Madden 2003, and No One Lives Forever 2 (Co-op! YAY!!!)


EDIT: Forgot about consoles, how dare me! Metroid Prime is the best game this year and one of the best games I think I've ever played. The atmosphere draws you in a lot like the System Shock games did. They did things right with Metroid Prime.
