    GTA IV
    Morrowind + mods/tools etc
    Fallout 3 + mods/tools etc
    Forza 3 (Assuming im allowed a 360?) or rFactor + mods

    Final game would be some form of brain training type game, because it wouldnt take me long to turn into a plum!!

    Joe, you are so very wrong about the NOLF sequels. NOLF 2 is better than 1.

    I would take:

    Civ 4
    A Total War game
    Football Manager
    Bad Company 2*
    A decent sim racing game, probably GTR2 with a load of mods

    * assuming there are servers and I can connect to multiplayer.

    BG2 would probably last you quite a long time alone. That being said... sandbox games would probably make the best desert island games. On top of BG2 I vote:
    Sim City 2000/3000 (take your pick)
    Any Total War game (Medieval 2 or Rome are my votes)
    Civilization 2/3/4 (I vote 2 or 4)
    And cuz I would want to shoot something at some point.... GTA IV

    Now... if I had a friend and another computer with me, then this list would be quite different:
    Unreal Tournament 2004
    Starcraft
    Supreme Commander
    Ground Control (anyone remember that game?)
    Hitman 2 or Blood Money

    Every game except Hitman has good multiplayer capabilities for both VS and team based play. Hitman is just good fun to figure out with a friend making fun of all your mistakes.

    - Mirror's Edge (Yes, I like it...)
    - Stepmania <3
    - My steam account in offline mode (HL+HL2+Eps+ Portal) - That counts as just one awesome game, right? Right?!
    - Age of Empires II: The Conquerors
    - Unreal Tournament: GOTY, INSTAGIB!

    Interesting to see the games picked really don't have alot of replay value and going over years of playing games (since my acorn electon) I have found the ones I spend the most hours on were:

    The first Championship manger, Civiliazation, Rome Total War, Original Sim City & X-com games.

    I'm saying these are best games, but the most hours played because I have played a hell of lot of games that leave feeling I want more.

    B'ah. NOLF 2 gets bonus points for the co-op campaign and RPG stuff, but it loses out mightily for the respawning enemies, shorter story, more annoying and out of place stealth sections and cumbersome adventure-ish missions. "Quick, find a bucket in that alley, then fix the tap with the crowbar from over there so that you can put out this small fire and get into the next street!" Um, no thanks, can't I just go around?

    The robots and so on ruined NOLF 2 for me. NOLF 1 was far better, if only for the final sequence where everyone starts coming back from the dead.

    ✓ Xcom1 (such a good game I keep coming back to replay it once every year or so)
    ✓ Oblivion (to finally fully explore the map and complete every quest, must have played this for over 200 hours and still not been to every corner of the map yet!)
    ✓ Final Fantasy VII (or VIII as I never finished that one)
    ✓ Dragon Age (not got round to playing this yet, the island will give me plenty of time to get stuck into it!)
    ✓ Just Cause 2 (favourite game at the moment, will keep me busy for months!)

    My first thoughts! Or maybe "ship simulator collectors edition with free real life ship."

    Or maybe one of those old PC games that came in the huuuuuge boxes with masses of manuals so I could fashion a raft out of it.

    I would take:
    -CoD4 or CoD6
    -FF-X (using a PS2 emulator)
    -PES
    -Gran Turismo
    - Battle Realms (the most underrated RTS in the world, pioneer in such many innovations on RTS genre)

    Can't I trade 1 or 2 games for my girlfriend, I bet I could play a lot more games with her =)
