Frontier: Elite II. Such a great game.

Forgot about that one... mates and I were amazed how Braben fit an entire universe on one 880k floppy disk.

Duke Nukem 3D - blitzed the old version.

Red Alert 2 - bought it ten years ago, and still play it more than any other game -mainly because I don't play anything but RA2.

I should of made the title to this thread what is your favourite 'games' of all time?

There are so many it is hard to pin it down to one..

Tom Clancy's Ghost Recon on PC was the ultimate tactical shooter. Along with the Rainbow Six series on all platforms as well - great games.

bellyfrog: I'm surprised no one's said Warcraft 3. Probably the game I've sunk the most hours into. Plus it has DotA which is an awesome game in its own right :)

WoW is fun but the game itself I find pretty boring it's more the social interaction which provides the enjoyment for me.

And just recently, Starcraft 2 is looking to be pretty epic.

If you like DotA you should try LoL - League of Legends - Free to play & created by the DotA team, Riot Games.

Spending alot of time playing that right now..

well, for old time, I would say I enjoyed playing "Alone in the Dark 3"

Its epic, even though I couldnt finish the game. Got stuck with the man with iron armor.

As for recent games, fable 1 is quite decent. Managed to kill 1000 villagers and got the werewolf to appear Yell

Alone in the Dark 3 was awesome - In my opinion I rate it a better survival horror than Resident Evil.

Haha I gathered you are a Mario fan going by your avatar there.

Another game I forgot to mention that almost won game of the year for 2009 would have to be none other than Batman: Arkham Asylum - of course! :)

Age of Wonders II : Shadow Magic
I have regularly played this for the last 6 years

The original Lemmings surely rates a mention
