For me I would definitely say...

Flight Simulator - all versions, up to the current one, Flight Simulator X.

I have spent thousands of dollars upgrading my notebook and desktop PCs just for the sake of this one game!

Call of Duty 4 is still fun. Bought it the day it came out and have gone through the story line 3 times and still play on Xbox live with thousands of people. Can't wait for the new one to come out, shame its set in the past as I enjoyed the modern weapons. Definately of all the Xbox 360 games I own, its been the one that I have hammered the most.

I fail at CoD4, no idea why. I simply never can tell when theres people behind me, in a game like Counterstrike with headphones on (quality headphones = best investment if you want to improve FPS skill) if someones behind me i can turn around and have the crosshair roughly where they are based on sound. In CoD4 i cant do this which only adds to my confusion.

Otherwise right now i like Company of Heroes, a little bit of CSS, Team fortress 2, Zombie Panic Source (awesome mod), Day of defeat source.
In the past, UT, UT2004, Red Alert 2 have all been a good hit.

IL-2 Sturmovik 1946 Series includes Forgotten Battles & Pacific Fighters. The Best Combat Flight Simulator Ever! Very Realistic. Detailed Aircraft just like World War II.
