Here's another for the oldies list: Dune II. The game that started everything. Not just for the games, but for me personally too. I just got the music from the game in midi format, and...

I've played CS quite a lot, but I always end up coming back to TFC... more enjoyable to me I guess.

Oh God, you like Unreal 2? It was just an overglorified benchmark system.

What I would consider to be a classic modern game is Deus Ex. Absolute classic. Also, there is Startopia, Knights of the Old Republic, UT2K4, UT, NOLF2, and Serious Sam. They're off the top of my head, anyway.

Vice City has one pro..... The music. You can't beat some good old 80's tracks. ^_^

I still don't have UT2k4 yet. I need to go get it. Is it much different from 2k3?

Not really, but the vehicles, Assualt Mod and Onslaught are all fantastic. It also has the original (and best) Facing Worlds.
