I'm sorta surprised no one took Wii Sports, it would be a good desert island game.

My island won't be a desert, it will just be deserted. :p

I prefer Wii Sports Resort, but really even then there isn't that much replayability.







Done!

And the board is all up to date, so we'll start the tournament early next week.

Feel free to post your honorable mentions. I'll post mine a little later.

We have a tournament, I do a random draw and order the lists from 1-10, then we match up lists two at a time and vote on whose list we like better. Since we have 10 teams, list #7 would battle list #10 and list #8 would battle list #9. Then in the next round, list #1 battles the winner of 7 vs 10, list #2 battles the 8 vs 9 winner, list #3 and 6 go against each other, and #4 and #5 go against each other. The winners of those face off in the semifinals, and then the winners there battle for the championship.

You can look at the other voting threads in this forum for examples.

by far the game I spent the most time playing was wolfenstein enemy territory. It is a first person shooter, but not a realistic one like COD. I played it A LOT. Even now every couple months I loaded it up and play for a few hours.

When I was younger I also really liked Interstate 76 - http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Interstate_%2776 it was awesome :D

Baldur's Night and neverwinter nights also consumed a lot of time.

There was a game called arcanum http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Arcanum:_Of_Steamworks_and_Magick_Obscura that I really liked because I got into the story. But it was relatively easy and short and no expansions :( anyone else play it?

I didn't get into Arcanum too much but I know a lot of people that really loved it.  You can get it here for $6! http://www.gog.com/en/gamecard/arcanum_of_steamworks_and_magick_obscura
(GOG is a great place for a lot of these older games you're looking for - they do a heck of a job and nothing is more than $10)

I-76 owned bones.  I really wish they'd remake it for modern systems.

I used to play RTCW multiplayer a lot. Never did get around
to trying Enemy Territory, though.

I played Enemy Territory: Quake Wars, though. Didn't like it
too much, but I didn't give it too much time.

I treat RTCW multiplayer the same as ET - I played lots of both...but ET had a huuuuuuge community. That is the only time I did the whole clan thing. Still talk to some of those guys every couple of months...one even helped me move in when I lived in Colorado.

I preordered ET: Quake wars but never got it. I played the beta version a few times but did not get into it.
