Lets get it on evil
There are rules, and they follow. I have been guided by the earlier posts when this list was being discussed. I may clarify as we go along.

1. You can recommend a maximum of 10 games, but you can recommend less.
2. You can't list a series, unless you use single votes for each game.
3. Expansion packs will be considered seperate games, on the basis that the original might be ordinary but an expansion pack superb.
4. Any game that is not pure adventure can be listed, irrespective of genre.
5. You don't have to indicate the type or genre, and you are not limited to any specific number of games in any genre. Go ahead and list 10 rpg's if you choose.

We will keep the thread open for about 2 weeks. At the end of it all I will compile an alphabetical list and a numerical list, and with the help of Zanthia we will also categorise the games into genres.
So without further ado, here is my humble contribution.

System Shock 2
Realms of the Haunting
Deus Ex
Ceasar 3
Alpha Centauri
Half Life
Twinsuns Odyssey
Quantity has a quality all of its own

Flotsam you are a darling for doing this. Only PC games have been mentioned so far. Are we able to include console games too or should they have a separate list?

I am still considering my list but without console games it will be rather short.
