But now I've taken the plunge. What game tempted me?
Perhaps Kingpin or SHOGO, both excellent FPSs I've always wanted to play but didn't?
Maybe a quirky, original title I've also never played, like Shiny's Messiah and Sacrifice?
Even a game I've already played but want to play again, like Unreal II or Redneck Rampage? Or my first-ever FPS game, the one that started my life-long love affair with the genre, Rise of the Triad?
None of them, although I'll probably buy them at some point. It's a game I've searched for on the PC for over a decade but have never been able to find. My favourite game on the Amiga, and possibly of all time.
I utterly love this game. If I chose the best game of all time, it would be Deus Ex. If I chose my favourite however, it might well be Cannon Fodder. The forerunner to the RTS genre (came out the same year as Westwood's Dune II), a more fun and almost as difficult version of Commandos, simple and yet devastatingly frustrating sometimes, if it weren't for Cannon Fodder I doubt I would be as into games as I am now.
Cannon Fodder 2 was the first game sequel I ever looked forward to as well.
