What would you consider your favourite video game, And why?

Yeesh, this is an incredibly tough question. Probably my single favourite individual game is Sid Meier's Alpha Centauri, but that's going up against other titles like Deus Ex., Monkey Island 2, Pirates!, the SSI gold box games and many more.
I think the game I have probably poured the most time into over my life is Civilization 4 though, although I think it's a bit weaker than SMAC. It's just SMAC Is so old now that its design conventions really rankle.
