Im back happydance
Divine Divinity leads the way with Morrowind close behind. They are the only games with 10 or more recommendations.
Games with more than 5 recommendations include Baldurs Gate 1 and 2, Gothic 1 and 2, Neverwinter Nights, Outcast, Splinter Cell and Sims 2.
Nearly 150 games have been mentioned, give or take an expansion pack.
We are about halfway.

Tomb Raider I
Tomb Raider II
Diablo II
Fable TLC
Zanzarah
Anachronox
Prince of Persia, Sands of Time
Prince of Persia, The Two Thrones
Dragonriders of Pern

Gremlin

(edited to fix PoP, T2T. Thanks Hugh!)

Wow, you're right that if that lot doesn't convert you, nothing will. That's good mix from fast action (Sacred) to the slow but extremely real world feel of Morrowind. NWN just the original or with expansions?

Just the original Pib. Now I just have to decide which to start with duh
On things listy, we said 13 nights so I will aim to post final results Sunday morning my time. Schwab35 is going to genre list, which may come later depending on how co-ordinated we can be.
So get those recommendations in.

My two cents would be to start with Divine Divinity then NeverWinter Nights. Then if you want to kick action into high gear, go for Sacred. If you want more depth and slower play, it's time for Morrowind.

argh, only 13! I've been Darksiding A LOT more these days and it's getting harder to narrow the list down. And I can't believe I'm actually recommending 2 games that are fairly hard and only have checkpoints to save at. I use to hate those kind of games. But if you can actually make it thru King Kong and POP Sands of Time it is some of the most satisfying fellings of accomplishment and exhileration ever.(and FUN TOO) In other words; What a rush!

1) Doom 3
2) Unreal 2: The Awakening
3) Chronicles of Riddick
4) The Wheel of Time
5) Drakan
6) Prince of Persia: Sands of Time
7) Thief Gold
8) Thief 3: Deadly Shadows
9) Blair Witch 1:Rustin Parr
10) Silent Hill 3
11) Outcast
12) Splinter Cell 2: Pandora Tomorrow
13) King Kong

A query.
The original release of Silent Hill 2 appears to be a slightly different version from Silent Hill 2: Restless Dreams. The first is a playstation exclusive release, the latter for other platforms including pc.
They are pretty much the same game, but I am going to list it as Silent Hill 2: Restless Dreams unless one of the persons who listed it says they specifically wanted the playstation original version.
