Unreal Tournament (UT99 GOTY) Great shoot'em up game to play online with diff modalities, the best one (to me) is CTF in some servers like House of Fools (hofgamingclan.com) or Pureinstagib (unrealkillers.com) but there's also Monsterhunt and Deathmatch - It doesn't need a lot of pc power and it runs great with a good gfx card.

There are a lot that come to mind, some already mentioned, like Planescape: Torment ...just an unreal game, way ahead of its time.
Baldurs Gate 2 - See above
The earlier Ultima series
Half Life, et al
Counter-Strike

I could go on and on, but honestly...I think if I really had to choose one PC game, I think the best I've ever seen would have to be Skyrim. It's just so...epic in all aspects. It's weird for me to choose that title, honestly, as I've played so many great games for about 25 years now, but bang for your buck, diversity, graphics, story, etc...it's gotta be Skyrim. I mean, even the name is badass.

HL 2 all the way. Best game I have played period.
SW: Knights of the Old Republic. Best plot twist and ending ever.

PC Gamer did a series of articles describing what happened when they turned on 200 random Skyrim mods all at once. The title was something like Realm of the Mad God.

Final Fantasy 3 (FF6 in Japan).

Great story, intertwined character arcs, pretty much what games need to get back to.

A game that got far less exposure than I think it deserved was one called Helbreath. That game was grindy like you wouldn't believe but the PVP made up for that 1000x. Was an MMO that used pictures to make it look 3d and the mechanics actually worked with no lag etc. So you could run it on any computer (hell you could run a decent private server on any computer too). All magic was 'skill shot' back when that concept was virtually unheard of and 1 on 1 or 10 on 10 open world duels could go on for 20 minutes if both parties were skilled enough. I would still be playing it but the official servers are dead (they might be shut down now) and the private server I used to play on is shut down.

Any of the The Half Life series. Oldies but a goodies. Fear would be another one.

Tough choice....

Ether doom 1, one of the quake games(probably 3) UT2k4, or the witcher 2.

Battleground Europe has been around for almost 12 years now and it's free-to-play.
F2P allows building captures & limits certain equipment/vehicle usage but with unlimited time.
There are no microtransactions, but if you decide you like the game then you can upgrade your subscription to a monthly fee.
It is one persistent server and there can be hundreds and hundreds of players on at the same time from all over the world.
Town battles can last hours and maps last months at a time.

Vehicles are modeled with realistic armor and penetration values and use no hitpoints.

Heres a youtube link of a recent review of the game

There are also fighters, bombers and naval warfare.
I know the graphics are outdated, but for those of you looking for a Player vs. Player combined Arms WWII sim, give it a try.
Ive been playing it off and on for the past 10 years.
Hopefully those who try it will formulate their own opinions on whether or not it's worth a download.

P.S.-Join a good active squad, it really makes the gaming experience that much better.
Most squads use their own Teamspeak server or the Allied/Axis server provided by the company.
S! and good luck

Ultima Underworld was a favorite of mine growing up as well. Possibly the basis for the Elder Scrolls games.

Someone mentioned Doom 1... that is a great pick

Wolfenstein would also qualify

Doom 1 would be added to my potential picks

I thought about those. It shows how far the industry has come. Cool old stuff.

My favorite game of all time was Star Control II. It has since been open sourced: »sc2.sourceforge.net/

More recently, I really loved Fallout 3 and have been playing Minecraft like a junkie.
