    1.) C3C
    2.) Majesty + expansions
    3.) NFS: Porshe Unleashed
    4.) Railroad Tycoon 2
    5.) 1602 A.D.

    Now, granted that number three may be in a bit different category than the others but I am a big fan of the need for speed series and this was definitely my favorite. But, for a computer, the other four games are tops in my book.

    1) C3C
    2) Panzergeneral 2
    .
    .
    .
    .
    .
    .
    3) CIV (but would close up with those 2 if only system requirements were reasonable - that is, wouldn't require a machine solely for gaming)

    Then, Civ1/2, Warlords2/3, PG1 and clones. Notice a theme?
    Yup, each and every premiere turn-based strategy game...I really do not appreciate any other genre.

    My kid used to have NFS:Underground for the Gamecube. I had fun with it. We were at a gamestore today, and he picked up NFS:Hot Pursuit 2. Gonna check that one out too.

    Nowadays, besides Civ3, Tetris is the only game I play.
    I did spend a lot of my undergraduate days playing Doom/Doom II. And SC2K.
    During my PhD. I played a lot of Minesweeper while running GC.
    So that makes (not necessarily in order of preference):
    1) Civ3
    2) Tetris
    3) Doom
    4) SimCity 2000
    5) Minesweeper

    I'm just wondering, has anyone tried the MMORPG Tibia?
