This was a pretty tough one to narrow down for me but I think I covered the ones I love the best.
1) Star Control II - Simply outstanding. It should be remade with all new graphics.
2) Master of Orion II - Anyone who's played it knows this one is a classic.
3) Civ's 4 - It's newly released, but I'm so hooked my kids have already begun to miss me, if I can find the time to review it I would but if you really need one go to gamespot they give it 9.4 out of 10!
4) Baldur's Gate 1 and 2 - I know it seems like cheating to combine these games together but they both belong here and it's my list.
5) Wizardry 1 - It's the game that launched 8 sequals and got better and better. It was sad to see it end.
Runner up: The Eye of the Beholder series - Sweet dungeon crawling goodness!
1) Star Control 1 - Head to head starship combat and a strategic game wrapped in one.
2) Final Fantasy 1 - It rocked the game world and shows no signs of slowing.
3) Resident Evil 1 - I never thought I could be scared by a video game, I was wrong.
4) Ghosts and Goblins 1 - Non -stop action with a simple story but awesome gameplay.
5) Castlevania 1 - Another franchise launcher, and I liked them all.
Runner up: The Legend of Zelda 1 - Wow, the first best reason to buy a nintendo!
There they are!
Where are yours?

In no particular order:
Half-Life 1 & 2 - Fantastic games with some excellent expansions and mods (for HL1 at least)
Mafia - Has the best storyline of any game I've played.
Interstate '76 - Who wouldn't want to drive muscle cars from the '60s and '70s around the Arizona desert with machine guns, missile launchers and flame throwers strapped to them?
Freelancer - Another great storyline with some stunning visuals.
Dawn of War - Just for the voice of Sindri. And another great single player story.
I was tempted to put Battlefield in there, but Interstate '76 won out. Let me rant about Battelfield briefly.
Battlefield 1942: Let's face it, people only bought it for Desert Combat.
Battlefield Vietman: Sucked.
Battlefield 2: Mind blowing. Great maps, visuals and sounds, rewarding teamplay, trouser-browning firefights. That is, when you can actually play it. I've had so many problems with BF2 that I'm seriously doubting my position as a Battlefield fanboy.
- Watch this space.
Here are mine, in no particular order.
1) Baldur's Gate 2. Yes, it just is that delicious. I honestly never was able to get into Baldur's Gate 1 as much as I could the second, I'm not entirely sure why. But it's a wonderfully epic story, I'll give it that much.
2) Planescape: Torment. Yet another Blackisle game. Ditto on the epic story, but its take on traditional fantasy concepts is the best. Plus, Dak'kon just plain kicks butt.
3) Super Mario RPG. I loved this game. I loved it good. I'm considering getting a Nintendo Revolution to be able to play it yet again.
4) Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past. Hookshot a go go baby! I have a weakness for sprite games that I can't quite get over for some odd reason.
5) Breath of Fire 3. Played BoF4 as well as the first one, but to me the third just seems to take the cake. Yet another sprite based game. If they could have combined the master and combat system of the fourth into the third, then I would have died from happiness.
And, some runners up.
1) God of War. Good, clean, wholesome and educational fun. Learn about Ancient Greece while cleaving through a good portion of its inhabitants!
2) Gabriel Knight: Sins of the Father. I loves me some adventure games, and Tim Curry's voice is perfect.
3) Chrono Trigger. There's a frog-guy named Frog. What more can I say?
4) Icewind Dale. Didn't like the sequel as much, and I felt that the first was also lacking some of the strong story elements of the Baldur's Gate series. But still. Abject fun.
5) Half-life. Crowbar a go go baby!
"Some days you're the Mekboy building the kannon, the rest you're the grot being blown up by it."

Well, the number one game that ever affected me would be Perfect Dark for N64.
1) Perfect Dark
2) Halo 2
3) Baldur's Gate 2: Shadows of Amn (Right now, it freezes when I try to load)
5) Animal Crossing (seriously, bells are da best)
1) Baldurs Gate 2
2) Baldurs Gate 1
3) Knights of the Old Republic
4) Knights of the Old Republic II
5) Splinter Cell - Chaos Theory
Never have owned a console. Never will. No console will ever come close the raw power that my PC has an frankly the graphics on all console systems suck big floppy donkey appendage compared to my ATI Radeon 9800 Pro.
Those are my favorite five games in order. As everyone can tell I'm a huge fan of the Baldurs Gate games. I played Baldurs Gate II all the way through so many times with so many different parties and I could still play it again tomorrow and not be bored with it. It absolutely is the best game ever written.
If the list went on to ten, then everyone would also see that the Splinter Cell games are some of my favorite. Everyone of the them ranks in the top ten of my favorite games ever. I really like first person shooters that aren't just all about shooting. Splinter Cell games actually take some thought and skill to play unlike games like Doom or Half Life.
Really difficult for me ... 'cause honestly, I can't compare some games to others. So, I'll just list up five games that I think are really good:
1) Final Fantasy VIII
2) Socom III: U.S. Navy Seals
3) Halo: Combat Evolved
4) Legend of Zelda: The Ocarina of Time
5) Knights of the Old Republic I & II
I like 'em all, and I like lots of other games that way.
I'm almost the opposite of Hourglass - I'm a console gamer 100%, but soon I'll be expanding (maaaaybe) with City of Villains for the PC.
1)GTA San Andreas a great game
2)Gta Vice city Another good game
4)age of empires 2
1. Baldurs Gate II - One of the best games of all time. I love it!
2. KoToR I - I found the plot of this one much better than the second. Plus I never cared much for the sequel :rolleyes:
3. Halo: Combat Evolved - Again, I liked this much more than the sequel.
4. Dawn of War - A really cool game that simulates most of 40k well.
5. Halo 2 - Pretty much just for multiplayer content, because the campaign was crap.

Might be hard. In no particular order:
Flashback: Quest for Identity
Battletech: Crescent Hawks Revenge
(and I think I could name MANY more)
Dunno what to list as the fifth one... Dawn of War just doesn't work.
Castlevania: Aria of Sorrow
Top five is tough, but I have to start with a classic.
1)Final Fantasty 1; like 12 sequels and none can top the first
2)X-com UFO defence; I love the combination of real time strategy and turn based battles, most games do it the other way with real time battles and turn based strategy...this game got it right.
3)Star Craft; Great story line, good single player, unbelieveable multi player.
4)Rock and Roll Racing; good old Super Nintendo, great racing, sweet music, multiplayer option, and you get to drive around and commit road rage...who doesn't love road rage.
5)Castlevainia IX symphony of the night; awesome graphics, nice music, multiple endings, side scrolling action in it's prime after everything else when to crappy first person or 3/4 view...can not beat anything set up like a classic in the new age of technology.
My runner up I think goes to Space Hulk Venegeance of the Boold Angels. It is a great game, lots of fun, nice graphics, hilarious sound bytes, it is just just lacking in replay value or it would be in the top 5.
