Oh, Maniac Mansion was great! How about Zak McKraken and the Alien Mindbenders! The Secret of Monkey Island?

Prince of Persia
Railroad Tycoon (the first one)
Sim City (the first one)
Civilization (the first one - pattern here??)
Eternal Darkness
Zelda: Wind Waker
Paper Mario (various, but Thousand Year Door was best so far I think)

Playing Mass Effect at the moment (well, when I have time) and I think it might make the list.

ETA: Galaga! Tetris!

Oops, I misread and thought that said "that you've NEVER played." That was potentially embarrassing, but my blunders in this forum are probably now beloved by posters.

Portal
Trinity
Strife
They Hunger
Shenmue (either one)
Centipede
Galatea
Cosmology of Kyoto
Fable
Knights of the Old Republic

Ten is tough... Also rans: Spy Hunter, Dreamfall, Oblivion, Space Quest, Defender of the Crown, Conquest of Camelot, etc.

Defender of the crown! That was fun.

I should add that mine was *not* a top ten list. That would take weeks to compile. I've never been good at those.

I know felius! That's why mine spilled over. If I hadn't stopped it would have gone on and on...

Wow, this is tough. I have come late to the world of video games, having almost never played them when I was a child (too expensive and whatnot). The first game I ever beat was Resident Evil 2 on an old boyfriend's PS. Final Fantasy 7 sparked in me a love of RPG's and since then that is the kind of game I have been drawn to - you know, the kind that suck you in and cause you to waste your time doing nothing but that for months? :)

Top Games (in no special order - listing 10 top games is tough enough):
(1) Final Fantasy Tactics - PS1
(2) Final Fantasy VII - PS1
(3) Suikoden III - PS2
(4) Disgaea: Hour of Darkness - PS2
(5) Fire Emblem - GBA
(6) Fire Emblem: Sacred Stones - GBA
(7) Final Fantasy IX - PS1
(8) Fire Emblem: Path of Radiance - GC
(9) Elder Scrolls: Oblivion (with expansions)
(10) Chrono Cross - PS1

I tend to love Strategy RPGs, anything with job classes, and games that operate in different parts of the same universe - hence my love for the Suikoden series (it was tough not to just list them all, but I picked III because I loved the three different perspectives and it was my first game from the series; V had a much more emotional storyline, but the encounter rate and load times were annoying) and my newfound obsession with the Elder Scrolls series. I feel like those games are like reading a fictional history book b/c you gradually learn more and more about this huge world.

Edited to correct a mis-spelling.
