Default Which game engine is the best in your opinion?

Choose wisely!

Info on each:
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Renderware
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Source_Engine
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Unreal_Engine
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/CryENGINE
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/CryENGINE2

Forgot to say: post your reason why!

For me it's Source Engine because of it's amasing hardware requirements! So low!

It isn't the engine that matters, unless you're writing a game. All of these engines are out of price range of most anyone here.

Neoaxis is shaping up to be a very nice engine. It has great tools and will be awesome once the lighting and shadows are complete. http://www.neoaxisgroup.com

System requirements have nothing to do with the engine.

And strange why you didn't include the revolutionary Doom 3 engine. I vote for that one, amazing graphics and overall good engine with plenty of modding possibilities. Oh, and games powered by it have low requirements.

Hrrm... tough choice. I voted for Cryengine 2, simply because of how amazing it looks. In terms of looks Unreal Engine 3 is a close second, though if we look at the tools, Serious Engine 2 beats Unreal Engine hands down. Not Crysis Editor though I think... from what I've seen of that one it's highly convenient and easy to work with... oh well, time will tell.

Renderware, simply because it looks nice and still is one of my favourites today, plus it looks pretty nice. Look to GTA3/VC/SA and burnout, and you see why.

Seg 3.0 and crysis seems to be the best to me, but it's really hard judge just now, as there are not much info yet on seg 3.0.

Don't you think that Serious Engine 1 is the best considering its release date?

I'd vote if this was a poll on game editors instead of game engines because I'm not exactly tech savvy on the engines themselves

I think Source is the "best" engine because of it's versatility.

You can both create Super-detailed areas and Large areas, but the downside are the Loading times because the maps are BSP-Based. (Built from Cubes .)

There should be proper Wikipedia pages for SE 1 and 2 as well...I could find only one page about SE, but it only described SE 1 (and not much IMO ).

EDIT- Wait, now I found some info about SE 2...but still, it's not as large as the articles for the other engines...

Maybe that is the reason there are no good articles, the engine isn't well known.

UE3 is a sweet engine indeed, but I'm not really sure how it looks like in action until I play games like Unreal Tournament 3 or Gears of War once they're released on the PC.

I personally am fond of the SAGE engine, from C&C: renegade, generals, battle for middle earth 1 and 2, and CNC 3.
