So if you had a gun to your head and had to pick only one game in your gaming history what would it be?

Personally it's probably just about Mass Effect.

Remember - THERE CAN BE ONLY ONE

Why don't you just ask all the parents to pick their favourite child while you're at it, or for my missus to pick her favourite cat!

If you're asking me right now I'd probably say Skyrim, ask me tomorrow and I might change my mind.

Such a great question mine has to be Shenmue, the series changed gaming for the better in my opinion.

Zelda Skyward Sword is certainly one of the most fun gaming experiences I've had but in terms of how much I've played it and how I still consider it a minor masterpiece to this day I would say Forza Motorsport 4. I'm not even a petrol-head IRL and would never of thought one of my favourite games of all time would be a "boring" racing simulator lol but the truth is I never do get bored with it and have never played such a deep racing game or appreciated one on the same level as this.

Extremely difficult but I'd say Mass Effect 2. Admittedly though I haven't played it for ages because I'm scared I won't enjoy it as much because of Mass Effect 3. Gotta let the wounds heal a bit longer

I think Broken Sword is one of my favourite games. It can't compete with the likes of FIFA or COD4 in terms of how much gaming time I've put into it but I just loved it from start to finish. Great story, atmosphere, puzzles. Was gutted when it ended.

It's perfect in every way.

Some very good choices out there! Banjo Kazooie would be a worthy choice out there.

There are so many games I want to pick, mostly for N64, but I simply have to shoot for Goldeneye 007.

I think I'd have to say "Emperor: Battle for Dune".

Been a big James Herbert fan for years and it was great fun to be able to play "Command & Conquer" in the Dune universe.

There are plenty of other games (Half Life 2, Far Cry 2, GTA: San Andreas spring to mind) that I was probably more taken with while I was playing them but, at the end of the day, I still think nothing of wasting a couple of hours a night playing a skirmish battle of E: BFD, 15 or so years after it was released.

Altered beast on the Megadrive. Purely nostalgic reasons, it takes me back to being a kid.

Wow difficult I only really play FIFA's and COD these days, however I think overall it has to be the first Metal Geard Solid on the PS one. It was absolutely brilliant, when I first got it as a kid I spent hours on it!

Tough choice!

I think because of how much I liked the story, I'll have to go with Final Fantasy XIII. Not a lot of people would pick it, but I loved the game.
