I have Dragon Warrior on the NES. Apparently that later got renamed to Dragon Quest.

On my sega Genesis it's:
Ultimate Mortal Kombat 3
Sub Terrania
Insector X

On Original XBOX it's:
Destroy all Humans
Mortal Kombat: Armageddon

Installed on PC it's:
Lara Croft: Legends
Battlefield 2
Battlezone II
Unreal Tournament 3
Serious Sam II

When I really go old school I install:
Forsaken
C&C: Renegade
Outwars

Josiah mentioned he still plays Soldier of Fortune II. Man I used to play that all the time. It was one of the first games I learned to network between two computers so my brother and I could play. We actually played more Soldier of Fortune 1 than anything but loved both. I think my oldest good game is Star Wars:Rogue Squadron.

MechWarrior 4: Mercs

Doom(i've finished up Knee-Deep in Zdoom, and that mod is Hard and Scary! on UV/Nightmare, if the first episode 1995 was like that, Resident Evil and Alone in the dark was screwed!)

Need to finish that Doom mod I was making :P

Also, the Doom II episode No Rest for the Living is amazing.

Changes it a little too much for me... I prefer it a little more conservative :)

The greatest game ever made! Official. Do not question! Just Kneel before it! (with a friend)
Back in the depths of time...I first played this with a mate on a table top in Panshanger football club, I was not old enough to be drinking the beer they gladly sold us, much Later I got it for the Sega megadrive, I still have it. So many battles were fought.. It is one of two games I consider to be "Sacred" the other is BZ2.
Only just found this version for modern pc's, No idea what going on with all the extra settings...

Apparently It can be played online...If anyone is foolish enough to challenge Me, ip addresses would be needed.

That said, I found Xaser's Evil Unleashed episode absolutely amazing, if a little too surreal.

i found an emulator that allows old arcade games to run on the PC, so ive been playing Galaga, Puckman, Defender, Joust, asteroids and some others. I had no idea how difficult the original arcade games were.

Games back then had less levels to work with so, devs usually made them a lot harder to beat to compensate.
