Morrowind was such a great game in so many ways, but how could you handle having maxed out skills and equipment 1/3 of the way into the game?  Myabe I just liked exploring that wonderful world too much, but I know it got really easy and really boring for me at the end and I never even finished it.

I have to post since there are some good games that aren't getting mentioned...

If you don't like RPG then you haven't played:
NeverWinterNights:  Shadowlords, Dreamcatcher series by Adam Miller
                                     Honor Among Thieves by Baldecaran
                                     Twilight series by Rick Burton (Finish it Rick!!!)
                                     Art of the Thanaturge by Wes Lewis
Open source authorships leads to some excellent stories but necessarily not enough people get to play them.

The birthright of all computer games... Dungeon, Adventure! and Zork  especially Zork Grand Inquisitor and by the same people with Douglas Adams:        Starship Titanic

I'm a Civilization junky including the board game by Avalon Hill
the Fallout series,
Dungeon Keeper was intensely fun to be evil,
Mech Warrior II,
Wing Commander II
Ultima Underworld I and II

I'd like to try some of these other titles that you all mention but there's not enough life to go around...

Civilization 2 and Warcraft 2.

But if i have a friend at home, playing on the same keyboard, then Worms Armageddon and Liero (with custom weapons)! Though they're still matched by North & South on Amiga and Mario Bros on Commodore 64...

 I am surprised there is no mention of the Bard's Tale series for Best RPG.   And Fallout 1/2 is definitely a good selection.

A nice feature is that the rules are set in text files. You can change the rules of the game (Within limits)! For example, one of the most fun games I've had is with wonders turned off. The tech tree looked totally different.

Having read this topic some months ago, i downloaded and played Fallout 2. Though i'm not a fan of RPG-like games, that was really cool. So, thanks for the hint Wink

Yes that was fun! You could easily change graphics/sounds too (they're simple gif/wav files) and i used to create whole new units.

Honestly, I've never played a game by Black Isle that I didn't absolutely love.  Baldur's Gate and Fallout are easily the best RPG's I've ever played, and although I've never played Planescape: Torment, I'm sure it's also top notch.

I'm also a fan of the early Final Fantasy games....although I can never remember the numbers...I especially enjoyed the one with Kefka (three, I think) and the one released in Japan with Exdeath (although I heard people hated this one).  The only "modern" FF I really enjoyed was 9. 

I'd also think the Silent Hill series deserves a mention, as well as Alone in the Dark.

As for most disappointing game, I'd go with Devil May Cry 2.  Loved the first, hated the second.

So many good games, narrowing them down is about as hard as Bill Clinton turning down a cheeseburger.  I'd have to go with Starcontrol II and Mechwarrior II, though.

Greatest? "Favorite" sounds more like this.
And 2 just isn't enough...
Something like this, in no particular order:
SC2 (default)
Deus Ex
Arcanum
ADOM (!?)
Fallout 1/2
Jagged Alliance 2
Dungeon Master 2,
Might&Magic 4/5
Wizardry 7 - Crusaders of Dark Savant (if not the best PC RPG ever)
... and etc.
