Default Classic games: The list

My beloved Xbox 360 just got the dreaded Red Ring of Doom, so to occupy my gaming time I've decided to go back and play some of the classics I've undoubtedly missed over the years. I've only been gaming since the era or the Xbox/PS2/Gamecube so I've got a large selection of unplayed games to choose from.

So, the reason for me posting this topic is to gather a list of old gems I should get around to playing. Please post with any suggestions! I'm looking for PC games ideally since I'll be able to play them all, but I could also play games on the Xbox, Gamecube and Playstation 2.

So far my list of games that look good are:

Deus Ex
System Shock 2
Baldur's Gate 1/2
Neverwinter Nights
Planescape: Torment
Fallout 1/2

If you hadn't guess I tend to enjoy shooters and RPG's, but I'll try anything once.

PS1 or PC:
Oddworld, Abe's Oddyssy and Abe's Exoddus (Yes I know they're both spelled wrong, they're supposed to be).

Zero Wing (duh =P)

AoEII I'd like to throw in in addition to AoE that was mentioned earlier.

Wild Arms on PS1
All the Final Fantasies up to and including IX but not X because X was rubbish and the series went downhill.

Crikey! This crazy clown causes commotion like the coming of Christ.

Certainly, still a curious and cordial cavalier in the countenance of crazed cads, curs and creeps who condemn courtesy as something corny. No cloud could collapse his crushing crescendo of comical crowing and crimson coiffure. This conjecture on culture comes circumlocutive, consequently...

You may call me Circus.

PC: dungeon keeper
like geeky said total aniliation
But Isn't it funny to think that guard might be able to copy eldar tactics slightly?
You mean "Perform Eldar tactics better than Eldar", right? :P
Not unless the Eldar have an obscure Warrior Aspect that revolves around the complete mastery of the common light bulb.

Total Annihilation is one of the greatest PC games of all time. It must be played!

I would also like to add Rome: Total War into the mix.

There can only be ONE game on your list, and it sits on my memorystick right now; Doom

Don't link to download sites genmotty - Silk

Mindyou, the old Command and Conquer games are pretty awesome and so too is Starcraft and Chess. If you get board of them look up Space Invaders or PACman on the internet and failing all that get a book. Entertainment doesn't have to interact with you...
