Uplink & Dev CD - No further comment required.
Call Of Duty - One of the most atmospheric games I've played in a while
GTA: VC - Freeform gaming at it's finest
Deus Ex - The thinking man's shooter, great replayability.

Bah, a toss up for last game... Freelancer or Neverwinter Nights?

I think NWN because of the buildy tool thing.

Morrowind (with Bloodmoon and Tribunal of course) - I have about 600 hours invested in this game and it never gets old. Theres way too much to see and do in it.

Call of Duty - Atmospheric, but short. Decent replay value.

Final Fantasy 7 - Huge huge game. Still have not beaten it completely.

I can't think of any others. I'd say Uplink, but thats cliche and untrue (at least until I can get Simply Uplink working!).

Hmm....

Civilisation (The original - you can spend weeks at a time playing that)

Half-life, with plenty of add-ons.

C&C Red Alert - God I love that game.

er.... struggling to think of any more....
ME!

FF7 would be pretty high up on my list, based on the fact I could survive for weeks playing it :P Civ is great too

Civ II - Many a time did a 'quick-stint' turn into all-weekend.
Frontier - Despite it's bugs, I loved this game. And despite having the biggest ship with the best weapons, in the most deadly parts of space, being able to simply drive into smaller craft with no damage to myself. I never obtained ELITE. Bah! Being stuck on a desert island would help concentrate my focus. (Why wont you load?... "Not enough conventional memmory..." Aaaaargh!)
Halo - Just because.
The Monkey Island Trilogy - Cos it's teh funneh, but would be like an ironic torture. ;)

plus some type of pr0n game to keep me warm on the cold lonely nights.

Hitman 2 - try to get silent assassin every time

Deus Ex - Been mentioned already, still one of the greatest games ever, excellent replayability.

Civilisation (3) - Yay for the Civ series...

Championship Manager (4) - Woo, CM, can't beat it. ;) Massive replayability factor.

(Conflict: ) Freespace (1+2) - Freespace is a fantastic game, nice graphics for that time, good storyline... Now all they need to do is make a Freespace 3 and somehow combine it with Freelancer 2...

GTA (1+2+3) - Because I can. :P

if you're including addons:

Command&Conquer:Generals with Zero Hour: Single player is good. If i could somehow get a phone line on the island... BUT STILL! SP is good.

Max Payne 2: Nicer looking then MP1... and its funky!

(Conflict) Freespace (1+2) with the FS1 addon: Cos it's just so fucking amazing!

Homeworld (1+2): Come on guys! really...

And finally, either XIII, Oni, or Serious Sam (1+2)... probably Serious Sam! :biggrin:
We dont stop playing cos we get old... We get old cos we stop playing.
