    Not to be a total douche, but the oenophile in me is compelled to point out that that is a common misconception, and only true for certain varietals to a certain extent.

    I feel like giving Planescape: Torment a bump, but truthfully New Vegas is my favourite game of all time.

    If I had to narrow it down to one with a gun to my head it would probably be Darklands. Impossible to tell just how many hours I sunk into that game before I even figured what I was suppose to be doing and then following through with the plot and finishing it for the first time made it even better. I also remember writing to Microprose at the time complaining that it seemed like my game wasn't working quite right and they actually sent me the patch disks. Just sitting down and reading that monster of a manual was fun.

    Why the hell hasn't Darklands gotten the Daggerfall Workshop treatment yet?

    Deus Ex. Though New Vegas is very close. Who knew that DX would turn out to be right about everything?

    It's impossible to narrow this down to just one game, but for me, any of the following are worthy candidates:

    Gothic 1/2
    Planescape: Torment
    Fallout 1/2
    Ultima Underworld
    Deus Ex (with GMDX)
    Zelda: Breath of the Wild
    Graphical NetHack
    Dwarf Fortress (for the potential)
    GTA: San Andreas
    World of Warcraft (vanilla days)
    Baldur's Gate 1

    A very difficult question, and tbh I can't mention a "favorite of all time". There are games you can enjoy a lot when you first play it through, and you may even consider it awesome and epic, but afterwards it loses it's appeal. Then there are strategy games (like Age of Empires) who can make you play random maps hundred times and yet wouldn't consider them awesome or epic.

    Therefore I came to the conclusion we must first define what "favorite" is. What is an RPG "favorite"?
