That game does not get enough love, so much fun, I might go back to it and start from scratch.

I was always a little disappointed that none of the agent skins were female.

Oldest would be Die Hard Trilogy and newest would be Crackdown. Now if it was top 10, I'd say Sleeping Dogs would be in that making that the newest 'best ever' game in that list.

Hold on...

Crackdown?

1990? Surely that would be the oldest game in your list?

Newest'd be one of the Taiko Drum Master games on the Wii.

Mr Do! ,berzer or asteroids I reckon... But my best five games changes every five minutes.

Newest, bad company 2... Quite simply the best multiplayer experience ever..

I'd have to have the Star Wars coin op in my top 5 so that'd be oldest. Newest much more difficult. Killer 7 would possibly squeeze into a top 5 so I'll go for that. Or maybe Fallout 3....
