Action games are my favorite if it has a good storyline and good gameplay its a solid game to me like mass effect 2 probably one of my favorite games of all time the half life series the assassin creed series and a nice free to play game called war thunder on steam is a must play really good fun check it out!

I agree on mass effect and HL.
My personal all time favorite game is Borderlands 1 (have beaten it well over 100 times).
The reason being I enjoy a game (in this case FPS) where you can level up, become more powerful, and find better equipment. HL, ASC, and ME all have that same mechanics as well as farcry 3 to some extent.

Another close second is Starcraft 2. Great storylines as well as tons of replay value in multiplayer + the arcade fun.

I used to love Minecraft. It got me into gaming a few years ago. I started Half-Life 2 but never finished it. From what I've played, it seems pretty good. I like Battlefield (series), Call of Duty (series), and Assassin's Creed (series). Bioshock Infinite was great, too.

DayZ, Arma 3 with BF4 coming in third place (minus the issues that are still beating around).

DayZ is just a ball to play with friends. I couldn't care less about having the best gear, I'm in it for the player interactions. Why, just today I challenged a random stranger to a fist fight. He played around before committing and got the first swing in. Knocked me out right quick. I woke up and he knocked me out again. Then he took my shirt, flashlight and battery (we were both new spawns) and took off. I woke up again, chased him down into a house and got knocked out again. Not to be discouraged, I woke up yet again and searched the village. He had taken off up the road, as I found out shortly thereafter. I caught up to him, and my buddy just happen to show up from the other direction. We beat him to a pulp, then I took my shirt back to tear into rags to bandage my cuts from fighting him. Then he got up again before my buddy could take his pants, so we found him again on the beach. Beat him down again and took his pants. Then a zombie chased us, and he happened to wake up as it was running by, thus grabbing the zombie's aggro and it killed him. That'll learn him to take my shirt!

Arma 3 just has so many mods like King of the Hill and Altis Life that are extremely fun. And it's great how detailed it is in regards to real life war-fighting.

BF4 is, well, BF4. I love the games minus the bugs/hit issues/etc.

One of the tricky things about a list like this is do we count the game quality against today's standards, or do we consider your favorite games of their time.

If I were to play a game today in my list of games, it would be:
Skyrim
Dragon Age Origins

Now there were games that I liked more than those 2 when they were released, but I would not play them today, after playing with today's technology.
