Wow....it's a tough choice.

If I were to go by genre:

First person shooters: Crysis. That game is just stunningly gorgeous, and it has some great play mechanics. (And I have a PC that'll run it smoothly )

Real-time strategy: Well, I'm not much of a fan of this genre, but Star Wars: Empire At War/Forces of Corruption made me stand up and take notice of it.

Combat simulators: Star Trek Bridge Commander.

Now THOSE are some great choices there!

I've only played a little of the original Half-Life.

I've played HL2, HL2 Eps I and II, and they are great games! (I played these on the Xbox 360 though, courtesy of "The Orange Box" which has the three I just mentioned, plus Portal --a highly addictive first person puzzle game, and Team Fortress 2).

AvP2 rocked. Made you really feel like you were there in the James Cameron ALIENS universe, even if the game is a bit dated....it rocks to this day. I am hoping that ALIENS: Colonial Marines will be a step in the right direction for this generation of games.

No One Lives Forever: Great game. It's almost Austin Powers-esque...it's there in the era and motif, but the character, Kate Archer, is clearly smarter. A little slow in the control department, but the humor keeps me in stitches, especially the guys in the fez hats. ("Go ahead, you have made my day!")

I enjoy the Civilization series immensely, and I've attempted suicide over the following matter... but I had copies of both Starfleet Command III, and Armada II for PC... we had an older PC that couldn't play them, so I threw them away! AAAAAAHHHHH! I hate myself for it. Do you know how much SCIII goes for on ebay? $100+! Oh well.

Most of my computer games are RTS (real time strategy) games. World in Conflict is a first of an unofficial genre called ARTS (action real time strategy) and is widely highly reviewed, I recommend getting it.

I have Civ III, and I like how much more simple it is than Civ IV, and it runs much smoother on our computer. SimCity3000 (I assume that's 3K) was good in gameplay, but you have to admit it's a very basic game, and kinda feels like an online game you can download. I got rid of it, but oh well.

One of my roomies actually has SCIII, and wants me to install it on my computer....but he's hardly here at all anyway...so there's no point.
