I'd say something in the top 50, due to the sheer amount of game's I've played over the years. The poll really depends on the age of the person and the amount of exposure they've had to other games.

Spent countless hours on it,

if it werent for those meddling bugs it would be more like top 5.

I'm still mourning the kerbals that were inhabiting my minmus orbital station, it just ... vanished in to thin air with only a docking port to show for.

As said above, it depends on your experience. Top 10 easily, if you restrict it to current games. If, like me, you remember a time when processors were 1–2MHz, RAM was in low kB, disk was in kB, colour displays were a premium upgrade, and some upgrades involved a soldering iron, then it's much harder to quantify.

Edit: It's not a perfect or best metric, but factually it's currently ranked #7 of all games on Steam, sorted by user reviews. 98% positive reviews. That's a HUGE achievement for a relatively tiny developer on their first big project.

It's the game I've wanted ever since I heard of Orbiter.

Otherwise, rocket science isn't my favourite, but it's definitely top 10 of all time. Maybe not top 5, though.

Until now... the best for me. Countless options to entertain yourself, mindblow :rolleyes:. I know nothing that comes near the idea.

I'm too early in the game to give a proper answer, but given its sandbox and open ended nature, I can see myself playing it for months and even years. The only other game I've played continuously for such a long time is Elite Dangerous. In terms of playtime it's likely to become one of my most played games ever, and therefore one of my favourites.

Then again given it's nature, it has no story or proper characters, which makes it harder to love than more emotionally involving games like Mass Effect, Xenogears, etc, so it s very difficult to classify it compared to those narrative games. Attachment comes in a different way for a game like Ksp, I think it comes with the time spent on it, which makes your involvment grow as you play.

All that to say, I guess it will eventually be in my top few games, but I must wait a bit before I can really say :) It's definitely one of the more original games, and for it's type it's very well made and complete.

just given the number of hours it would compare in gameplay time for me between counter-strike, battlefield series, Larry the Lounge Lizard and Elder Scrolls Series.

It's in my top ten, and I have been gaming for 32 years.

Atm top 20. It has the potential to be an absolutely amazing top 5 game depending on where the devs take it (planetary exploration, interesting career, more interactive environments)... fingers crossed!

Top 20 I would say. There are things that let it down, but re-playability is really fantastic otherwise people wouldn't come back after each patch! :P

Well for me personally it's a definite #1 atm and has been for ages. Though not a big gamer I've hardly played any other game since getting it (v.18.3) and can happily spend hours at it.

Overall I can't say as it's very subjective but voted top 20 as it feel about right.

The only game that could possible beat KSP as the best game is Star Citizen.

This game is definitely a masterpiece, and I still think it's underrated! All I feel the game lacks in is rich exploration, fantastic graphics (sorry), and good terrain. It's still #1 in my books, but some other indie games I'm following has a slight chance of passing it up in the future.

I don't want to say I like KSP better than Minecraft, because MC has that nice multiplayer aspect that KSP lacks... but for a single player game, it is exceedingly good. If you like this sort of thing :)

I feel there's a few testing and quality control issues that could do with handling better, but the basis of the game is spot on.

I found out about ksp around September and downloaded it in December. Ive been playing it between 3-10 hours a day depending on what I have to do and its been the only game I've played since then. I'd say its pretty high up on my list

Let's see. I decided to give KSP a chance all the way back in 2011, and I'm still playing it today. It was already exceeding my initial expectations by 0.18. I think it's safe to say that this game is pretty high on my list of games that are made of awesome.

Ask again in 2 years. 2 years after release is my favorite time to play single player games.

Was easily my second favorite game after Starcraft: Brood War. But ever since they implemented the new "realistic" aerodynamics, it lost its spark.

KSP 0.90 = 9.5/10

KSP 1.0.2 = 4/10

I'll be honest here... I have played this game for years, the game play is outstanding (could do with some more EVA features and maybe immersive IVAs) However the one thing that REALLY holds this game back from being #1 is the graphics. This may seem petty but its been a LONG LONG LONG time since we have seen anything to change the graphics. I am fully aware that the devs can't do anything to change the RAM issue but its just a shame were stuck with blobby planets, poor lighting and no clouds. Just saying.
