Planescape: Torment. - Just because of Morte.
Deus Ex (1) - Oh yes, back in the day, we spent SKILL POINTS!
System Shock (1 & 2) - One word: SHODAN.
Chaos: Hey, it's a GW game!

The Oregon Trail, on the Apple IIc... no, seriously, I used to love that game. We had an Apple emulator to play it on PC in school a couple years ago, it was great!

O.o Remember the rafting part? I always lost at least half my family there...

My favorite old games...

Escape Velocity
Chaos Gate!

Deus Ex (1) - Oh yes, back in the day, we spent SKILL POINTS!
That was the game I was going to suggest. If you play it from styart to finish in one sitting, you find yourself thinking "F12" when you walk into a dark room.

Civilization because the gameplay rocks :D

20-03-2005, 09:10
Id recommend Call of Duty for online play, although Im not too sure if its a classic.

20-03-2005, 09:15
Its only like 2-3 years old so its not a classic as far as i know, even tho it won the game of the year 2003 :)

I always go back to the close combat serious especially 3, get a few mods you can go all over again with different units etc. Same with the other close combat games. I also like Jagedded alliance 2, takes time but its got character. But the king is operation flashpoint i love that game, i think theres some GW mods going around for it.

Total Annihilation
Curse of Monkey Island
Grim Fandango
X-Wing Alliance (or any other X-Wing game)
Theme Hospital
Fallout (the best rpg ever, besides KOTOR :D )

21-03-2005, 03:56
I'd like to voice my support for both 'The Oregon Trail' and 'Civilization I & II'

Don't like Civ3 though for some reason.

Command and conquer.

Gooooood stuff.

21-03-2005, 06:26

Mechcommander 2
Return to castle wolfenstein

Any of the Blizzard games: Diablo, Diable II, the Warcraft games, Starcraft... so good.

X-Wing. TIE Fighter. X-Wing vs TIE Fighter. Old games, but just excellent, very absorbing and addictive.

Most of the others I was going to suggest have also been mentioned...

Europa Universalis II (great game)

Yay, yay and thrice yay. Whenever I get tired of PC gaming I go back to EUII or Total War.... and Deus Ex is up there as well. EUII rocks, though.. and nobody seems to believe me round here

22-03-2005, 20:14
Half Life, Age of Empires 2 and Starcraft along with several that have already been mentioned like Fallout, Diablo and command and conquer

22-03-2005, 20:32
If you havn't played it yet, get Deus Ex!!! It's possibly the best single player game I've eer played, and the MP is addictive in a kind of "this is stupid, bad and pointless. Yet strangely fun" sort of way.
