Re: If you had to recommend one PC game what would it be?

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I know the graphics are outdated, but for those of you looking for a Player vs. Player combined Arms WWII sim, give it a try.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.

All of my games would be older RPG style games. Not sure I could pick just one, but I will try.

The Bards Tale.

I really enjoyed this game back in the day. It had a great feel for an actual adventure with the puzzles and riddles.

Other games I enjoyed. Wastelands, Wizardry, Any Ultima game, Ultima Underworld.

Sports -- 4th & Inches and Hardball. Both from Accolade if memory serves me right.

FPS -- Delta Force

Games today are good, but its the classics that Im most fond of.

Unreal Tournament 2003 or 2004. Great graphics, multiple play styles, and great weapons.

RTS: Red Alert
Turn Based: Master of Orion
FPS: Dark Forces
MMORPG: WoW
Simulator: Tie Fighter

Of those, if I could only pick one I'd have to pick Tie Fighter. That being the original one with the iMuse interactive music, not the continually looping CD music.

Lots of old games; I haven't played many that have been listed in this thread, unfortunately.

I can't decide between, Tribes(The original tribes), Starcraft Broodwars, or Battlefield 2(pre patch1.4 that killed bunny hopping opness)... The first to basically sum up my first exposure to online competitive gaming back on dat 56k.

Right now I am voting: Starcraft Broodwar

SC Broodwar > Vanilla WoW > Diablo 1 & 2 > Quake > Wolfenstien > C&C > Doom 1 & 2

and all of these are EPIC imo

I had SC Broodwar down to a science with build order and everything, such a great game... that SC 2 never reached

race of choice in SCBW? ZERG

had some insane muta rush at 8 min, that left people saying... WTF just happened

mid college to about 2 years after college, there is a complete vacuum of my video gaming...

was too busy with school, and girls

Team Fortress 2. That's the game I play the most by far. I love how they keep updating it too.

Star Wars Galaxies

I know a lot of people will say it sucked, but I loved it. Pre CU and pre NGE of course.

Everquest for me. Nothing else comes close to the first release of EQ and the sheer size of the world it brought. This is the game that defined MMORPG from the onset (my opinion). Ive never been so involved in game where running across the continent was not only time consuming, but the actual event of running across was thrilling. Seeing my first Hill giant in the distance, getting on board boats to cross the oceans. The first time running around a city. This game and no other game since has had the same initial feeling. WoW came close but not the same. The game went downhill once Sony took over
