    Zelda or Metroid. They are true video games in that they require common sense. Long adventure games are generally the best IMO (does that mean 'In my opinion? :lol: )

    personally I have had the most fun with the Super Mario, Silent Hill and Mortal Kombat series.

    I would buy any game from those three series blindly.

    Ohh man, got to think about this for a second... ... ... Oh!

    If it's not platform specific I would have to say, for me, It's a tie between the Elder Scrolls Series, and Half-Life series.

    I have a few, not just one:

    - Legend of Zelda
    - Super Mario
    - Paper Mario
    - Final Fantasy

    One of those four would easily take the prize for me.

    It's either Mario or Zelda. Both series set the benchmarks for their genres.

    Almost certainly.

    The original three Spyros could be, not the new pieces of garbage that they slap with the Spyro name.

    I think longevity/consistency should be kept in mind for "Best game series of all time" and the fact that the quality of Sonic and Spyro games have declined so heavily in recent history means that they're out for sure...

    Through it all, I'm gonna say the Mario platforming series. It's just so solid.

    Yes, I agree.
    That and the Legend Of Zelda may be the best video game series of all time.

    I have many...

    Unreal
    LoZ
    God Of War
    StarFox

    Among others.

    I could not choose just one.

    I'm going to have to go with either Metroid or Spyro (1-3 PS1). Both series are solid adventure games which had me going for ages when I was a kid and still do (not so much Spyro anymore). The new Spyro games being released are scoring horribly and are plain out dull. Metroid on the other hand, is still running very smooth (Prime 3: Corruption).

    Well, I haven't even answered my own question, but I'd go with
    Hitman
    Zelda
    Elder Scrolls
    Mario
    Halo
