    I still fire up Might & Magic 6+7 from time to time. They hold up for me.

    Morrowind is also by far the best Elder Scrolls (IMO of course) and you can get mods to make the graphics better which is a plus.

    +1 on Fallout 1/2 (i like them far more than 3), BG 1/2, DK 1/2, Arcanum (i just assume this is mentioned somewhere), Thief and of course the best strategy game ever TA (try supreme commander or an open source project called Spring if TA feels too dated). I had a lot of fun with Dark Messiah of Might & Magic, plays similar to Dishonoured and is made by the same devs.

    Sorting by genre:

    RTS:
    - Dune 2
    - Command & Conquer and Command & Conquer Red Alert: The first two games from each series. After that there is a steep drop-off. Also, Kane is just badass.
    - Warcraft 1,2,3

    Point & Click Adventures:
    - The Legend of Kyrandia: Hand of Fate is the best of these in my opinion. This is one game, that i probably could write you a full game guide from memory after all these years.
    - Syberia 1 & 2: Beautiful art design and a nice (but somewhat melancholic and sad) story.
    - The Day of the Tentacle: Oh the glorious days of Lucas Arts adventures! If you want to play the prequel (Maniac Mansion), you can actually do this in the game (somewhat at the beginning, you can access a computer which will start the game. "Yo dawg, i heard you like games. So we put a game in your game...")
    - The Secret of Monkey Island: Another one from Lucas Arts.

    FPS:
    - Half Life
    - Doom 1 & 2
    - Wolfenstein 3D & Return to Castle Wolfenstein

    Flight Simulation:
    - Wing Commander 1 & 2
    - X-Wing vs. Tie-Fighter
    - Rebel Assault: While the gameplay is somewhat lackluster, this game set a milestone in terms of graphics (although, they kinda "cheated")

    Arcade:
    - Need for Speed: A milestone back then.
    - Micro Machines V3: One of the best party games. Must play with friends in multiplayer.
    - Bomberman / Dynablaster
    - Bubble Bobble

    Jump 'n' Run:
    - Prince of Persia

    Strategy:
    - Civilization 1 & 2
    - The Settlers

    They've been mentioned a couple of times so far, but The Longest Journey and Dreamfall: The Longest Journey are (imo) the pinnacle of classic PC adventure gaming.

  7. #107
    My favourite
    Gabriel Knight: Sins of the Fathers
    The Beast Within: A Gabriel Knight Mystery
    Gabriel Knight 3: Blood of the Sacred, Blood of the Damned

    i wish they would make more games like these

    Also MDK 1 + MDK 2 , Gunman (like half-life), x-3 series, postal (original) and 1 of the most fun fps shuters (also bloody):

    Haven't anyone here mentioned Twinsen's Oddisey!?

    wow I just learned that this game changed the name XD. In Brazil it was Twinsen's Oddisey, so more of you might recognize by Little Big Adventure 1 and 2 XD

    LBA is a great game, though some people did get annoyed with the 'running into walls' thing. I didn't mind it back then, and I guess it adds to its charm today, at least for me. It also has a fantastic soundtrack.

    Can't be arsed to check if it was mentioned already, but Full Throtle.

    While we're onto nostalgia...

    Manic Miner
    Jetset Willy
    Sabre Wulf
    Lords of Midnight
    Quazatron

    You'll need a zx spectrum emulator, though
    :P

    Seriously, though:

    Space Quest - Roger Wilco was awesome
    Dune 2

    Probably mentioned already but - Legacy of Kain series. You can start at Soul Reaver 2 if the graphics of the older games seem too bad for you.

  15. #115
    Heroes of Might and Magic 1-4
    Silent Hill 2, other SH games are good too but 2 is just the best of them
    Unreal Tournament
    FEAR
    Command & Conquer

    Mmm, Loved Full Throttle. Talk about a bad ass main character.

    Wing Commander 3. This game was freaking amazing lol.

    And i'll say it again, X-Com UFO Defense and X-Com Terror From the Deep.
    WoW is no longer an MMORPG. It is now a MMOAAG (Massively Multiplayer Online Action Adventure Game)

    Warcraft 1-3
    Tiberian Sun
    Counterstrike 1.6

    I think FF9 was released on PC at some point, definitely a must play.

    Of course the Baldur's Gate series as well and Diablo 1 & 2.

    Quick, call Ukraine and Russia, let them know to put their conflict on standby because Touch of Elune is BULLSHIT!

    No, it never was, though there were plans for it.
