    Plz vote for D2 agaisnt HalfLife!!!

    D2 has nearly unlimited amount of possibiltys to have fun in that game, since u can Craft, Create items, gamble, magic find, make mutiples amount of each character classes, duel, level up, play cooperatively, make clans, duel clans, its just a GREAT overall game, and sure Half life has mods, but thse arent exactly HALFLIfe, there modded versions of haflife, i dont know if maybe im thinking and going at this wrong, but i beleive that these 2 games should be number 1 and 2, byt somehow Doom or mario is gonna get second place...........thats pretty lame.......

    Hey, Diabloi II even has mods. Some of which are very fun to play. The only problem with Diablo II mods is that they are not widely known.

    If you are planning to diss Mario, I will never speak to you again.

    The Super Mario Bros series are the best ever. Diablo II is very nice, and I would vote for it over Half-Life, but it doesn't reach even close to Mario's shoulders.

    i am not trying to offend anybody but...who plays mario games?

    well i think kids mostly like 7-12 year old...

    what kind of mature adult like 18+ would play mario i just dont get it

    its like if there was a poll between a toy car and a Ferrari real car....and we would be asked whats more fun...

    kids would vote for their toy car and adults would vote for Ferrari...

    but noooo wait in this case, adults would vote for the toy car cause it just doesnt make sence.

    people please explain to me, how the hell mario got so far?

    is it possible that all mature people voted for it? whats wrong with them? do they still play mario ?

    I think the reason many people vote for Mario is because it was really the first series to introduce the public to what video games SHOULD be. Before Mario, people had what, Pong? Pac-Man? I think it's safe to say that everyone who has ever played video games has played at least one Mario game. The two go hand-in-hand. Mario 3 is not being voted for because of the game itself (well, maybe some of it is because of that,) but because it represents the whole series of games, from Donkey Kong all the way up to Mario Sunshine. Diablo 2 is a flash in the pan compared to Mario. He's immortal.

    That being said, I'll still probably vote for d2 out of support for this site. lol.

    No offence, Flanker, but your toy car analogy is stupid. (1) A toy car is not a real car, while a Ferrari is. Mario isn't a real game, or what? (2) A toy car doesn't have the slightest bit of nostalgic value, while on the other hand Mario is a classic (uberjolt explained it well, I like the "flash in the pan" expression) and way ahead of its time. Don't forget that the first Mario game was released in 1985. I could be mistaken, but if I am, it is even earlier than that. And you got to have respect for that. Besides, what's even more important: it is delightfully simple, yet heaps of fun. I have spent hours on that game, and I am sure I'm not the only one. This game has given me my passion for computer games, and again, I am sure I am not the only one. Not including Mario in such a poll would be like blasphemy.

    Your personal opinion might be "Mario is for kids", and you are perfectly entitled to think like that. But to each his own. I still play Mario now, and I'm almost 25. Yes, that is adult. And I think I am quite mature as well.

    snowkien: thx now i udnerstand more why mario is so important

    i just never realized that mario is the pro founder game.. kinda like mother of all games

    what i still dont understand aboit so many ppl voting mario is this: i though this poll is so find out which game is the best...not which game is most played by kids and adults for longest time...

    yes i think i played mario games but the bored me in 2 months or so..

    there is nothing more in that game than jump forward and backward...it got me bored rly fast :) unlike d2 4 years of fun

    mario games are not just for kids. if that is your belief then you are missing out on what is arguably the greatest series of games of all time. nintendo are one of the greatest games developers in the world and so many people would rate their first time playing mario 64 as one of the highlights of their gaming life. that game was more of a leap in the evolution of games than anything else.

    nintendo definitely belong in my group of top game developers along with
    blizzard
    square
    id software

    mario games are oozing gameplay which is so often forget with modern day developers who are all about pazazz

    yeah, i had to vote half-life on this one. sure diablo 2 is fun and madly addicting, but half-life was so revolutionary, i was there to play it when it first came out, and there to teach myself modding with it's awesome engine, which still rivals some of the crap they pump out today.

    :grrr: sorry guys.
