Here are THE best games ever:

1)Starcontrol 2 (Undisputedly, the most involving, entertaining, cool game EVER!)
2)Quake 2(Multiplayer only, because that chain gun RULED!, why didn't they keep it in QIII we'll never know.....)
3)Starcraft(NOT warcraft, which i think BLEW btw)
4)Metroid(SNES,I'd say regular nintendo, but I didn't play/have one)
5)Jedi Knight (force powers AND guns all in one. AWESOME multiplayer, sooo underated and underplayed...what a travesty! ).

Honourable mentions:
6)Contra (SNES, same reason as metroid)
7)Baldurs Gate(all)
8)Civilisation II(just because it looked nicer than Civ I)
9)Wolfenstein 3D (kickin Nazi ass!, and thats where all Doom, Quake and Halflife started from)
10)Zelda(just really good. especially from SNES onwards)
11)Street Fighter II(what a game, arcade, SNES or whatever)

The last arrow of Legolas kindled in the air as it flew,
and plunged burning into the heart of a great wolf-chieftain.
All the others fled. -J.R.R. Tolkien, The Lord of the Rings

Does Everquest count as D&D?
Are there any other recent D&D Games?

Doesn't anyone remember XCOM? It was one of the best strategy games ever! The graphics and sounds aren't too impressive now compared to more modern stuff but in its day, when average Hard drives were only a little bigger than the average RAM of todays PCs and a 486DX was high speed, it was the game to play! (Maybe I'm just old)

1.) Wizardry (from late 80's on Nintendo)

Don't scream at me or send me bad emails! I was one of those guys who played paper and pencil D&D only once in a blue moon because my friends were never availible at the same time. I bought this game, sat down in front of my son's Nintendo and didn't expect much. And as far as graphics go I got very little, but afer falling back on my imagination I was riveted. I played a game without having to plan the entire adventure, without having to figure out dice rolls and without killing myself to make everyone else enjoy the game enough to play again. This game saved D&D for me!

2.) Champions of Krynn (the old SSI boxed games) for the same reasons. These games where ahead of their time. Today it's no problem to make a D&D game, but in those days...

3.) Civilization (1st)
4.) All Baldur's Gate Games
5.) Axis and Allies (I've loved this game since the beginning and always waited for the day they would computerize it....even though Hasbro did a sucky job. They patched it a couple of times and quit even though it wasn't right

Hmm.. I haven't played that many CRPG's, or RPG's for the sake of it..

1. BG series
2. Myth 2 (If you haven't played it, you're missing out, Strategy/RPG)
3. Zelda series (any of them are good, about the only worthy RPG of the NES)
4. D1, it was good at the time
5. W&W

I haven't played Ultima, but I would really like to try it. I just can't stand the $10 monthly fee..
