    Final Fantasy 8, shame theres no high res version :(
    CS 1.6

    No other game has really gripped me like the above. I do play TF2 purely for fun but FF8 just wowed me in the gamplay, story line and graphics and CS got me into FPS games.

    Resident evil series because it opened my eyes so much years ago and really inspired me to try out other games.

    COD. Damn that game had some kick arse parts.

    Also Hitman Blood Money. I bought the soundtrack and a pair of leather gloves after playing it through. :o

    Gotta say Unreal Tournament blew me away in its day.

    The game that really had me hooked on multiplayer gaming was MOHAA. I played on that for months. I don't know if it still has a following.

    Sure seeing COD4 and Crysis was impressive but haven't had that lasting impact as UT and MOHAA.

    Quake 1.. from the moment i completed it i wanted to get involved in 3D art.. and after making lots of maps in worldcraft and various other editors and a trip to uni i ended up doing what i wanted, and i now working for a games company as a senior environment artist.

    So you could say it was the first game that "inspired" me.. although i ended up playing Half-Life 1 alot more.

    Pole Position on the BBC Micro.

    It inspired me to get in my dads car at the age of 6 and let the handbrake off.

    Portal. I was beginning to think that all games were just modeled upon older variants until I came across this gem.
