What is your opinion of the best game other then risk? And it can be video/computer games, or board games.

Halo 2 for Xbox is probably the best console game online,
Super Mario series was the best series of games for any console,
Oregon Trail was my favorite computer game in grade school, now I play it with my daughter.

i've played that. its alot of fun.

also sumo. its a party game. its basically organized rape in a circle. or reverse duck duck goose.

theres a person in the middle, and around him in a circle, are pairs of ppl sitting with thier legs apart, and and one person is sorta in the V(this sounds really perverted but its not). the person in the middle calls names of hte front person and they try to get to them. the back person tries to stop them. if they do , they switch with the person. and if the person in front fails to touch the person they switch with the back person.

guys...if you can't cop a feel during this... your retarded.

for video games:

Space Shooter: Ikaruga

Racing: I personally like F-Zero GX the best, as it's so friggin' fast

Sidescrolling platformer: Metal Slug or the Megaman Zero series, both excell at different points. (Megaman Zero requires a LOT of patience to get the point where you enjoy it, but once you do, it's amazing.)

Fighting: Guilty Gear.

I thought I'd throw out the 2 best updated Risk games:

1) Risk 2210 - adds "energy" as a currency with which you can purchase strategy cards that can have far-reaching game effects, adds "commander" units to the gameboard which gives combat advantages, and adds the moon as a second playable board, and a 5 turn game limit so it doesn't turn into a 12 hour gaming marathon.

2) Risk Godstorm - ancient Earth setting, adds "mana" as a currency with which you can purchase fate cards that have far-reaching game effects, adds gods which also dramatically affect gameplay, adds the continent of Atlantis (which can be sunk by a Fate card - if you have armies on it when it happens, oh well), adds the "Underworld" map where eliminated armies go where they fight again, and a 5 turn game limit.

Both are very, very cool.
