    Mass Effect 1 and 2, Fallout 3 (never played it but I imagine it's a game to be played 1000 times before you run out of stuff to do), Stalker: CS/SoC, complete HL2 collection (when it's out, inevitably including Portal 2 and HL1 etc).

    They'd have to be 5 sprawling sandbox games for me, just so I could spend hours/months/years farting about doing nothing. GTA4, Fallout3 and Burnout Paradise come to mind first off. Just Cause 2 maybe.

    Half Life 2 (including its "expansions"), Crysis, GTAIII, either Grid or Dirt and...possibly one of the newer Tomb Raiders. Actually scratch that - CoD2, still play it online mucho hours a week :D

    Doesn't even matter if there's no internet, 1 disk lan cheesecake :thumb:

    Personally I tired of it really quickly. Seemed like there were way fewer sidequests than Oblivion and also the setting wasn't as immersive IMO. I barely managed one playthrough before I put it down.

    For me: BFBC2, Mass Effect 2, Oblivion, Halo 3 :)p), racing game to round it off, probably burnout paradise

    Hmm...

    Oblivion (with all DLCs and modding app), Fallout 3 (with all DLCs and modding app), Dragon Age (with all DLCs and modding app), Mass Effect 2 and Neverwinter Nights with all expansions and modding app. Should leave me sorted for a while until I manage to construct a satellite TCP/IP link out of banana leafs and coconuts.

    Crysis, Motorhead, System Shock 2, Supreme Commander and open TTD as being stuck on a deserted island should give me enough time to figure out how bloody signals work :/

    I wouldn't mind waiting if I was on a Desert Island, go for a swim for a while. Go grab some food.

    BF:BC2 / GTA IV / Batman: Arkham Asylum / COD 4 / FM2010

    As much as I love my shoot-em up's, I'd still need my fix of football in the week.
    The only one I'd want to play on-line would be BC2.
