    FIFA

    Football Manager

    F1 - probably the version with 'classic' era mode, not that I've played that one yet.

    Rocksmith - would finally be an opportunity to spend some time on it and learn how to amuse myself without touching a computer or my penis.

    KOTOR - never actually played it for more than 30 minutes but I'd need a Star Wars fix and this is probably the standout option, plus rpg depth.

    Fallout 3
    Max Payne 2
    Tomb Raider (the reboot one)
    Bioshock Infinite
    Football Manager (doesn't matter which one as they will go on forever)

    Where are we getting power on this desert island by the way? I could bring a wind turbine, probably one lying around the office somewhere :thumb:

    Championship Manager 2001-02
    Fallout 3
    Morrowind
    Civilization (yes, the original!)

    Honourable mentions to Skyrim (which loses out to Morrowind by a fraction) and Angband.

    Colin Mcrae rally 3 - the last of the good rally games IMO the dirt series doesnt live up to it and the last few WRC games have been a bit lacking.
    Skyrim - Plenty of gameplay to be had and can play through it multiple times.
    Super meat boy - could spend months trying to perfect the levels.
    Super Mario World - i have been playing this game over and over since i was 13, still havent managed to finish it.
    Far Cry 3 - nice long game with plenty to do

    A few years back this list would have been very different, but over time my favourite games tend to get played to death.

    Xcom - Enemy Within

    Deus Ex

    Skyrim

    Mass Effect boxset

    Vampire Masquerade - Bloodlines

    If I had internet I'd keep the list the same apart from replacing VM:Bloodlines with Star Wars:TOR, to get my lightsaber/force fix.

    Grand Theft Auto V - There's so much to do.
    Football Manager - Have played 100s of hours over the years, not so much lately. I would take my beloved Liverpool FC to the Premier League title that has eluded my football watching years.
    Far Cry 3 - I feel this could give me some 'practise' in case the island came under attack.
    Super Meat Boy - Will have plenty of time to master it.
    The Sims 4 - Once I inevitably become insane, I can just live out someone else's life with this. :D

    Nice question, and good to see some old school answers.
    I'm an Xbox racing convert so my list is along similar lines...

    SWOS - best game ever
    FM2008 - most addictive game ever
    GTA V - tops even vice city for fun
    Simcity 2000 - endless possibilities, although Cities: Skylines runs it close
    Grim Fandango - for the jokes

    Too late guys. We found tyquin on an island about 20 minutes from the a34 back in late December 2014.

    Weird, how 2 and a half years later, the only thing I'd change would be GTA:SA to GTAV

    Oh, and up to date version of FM

    Probably because he know's he would go mad trying to solve the Mount Chilliad mystery on his own... Being alone on an island is enough without needing that kind of burden!

    No mention of dwarf fortress, wtf?!?

    Dwarf fortress
    Net hack
    Football manager (whatever the current version is)
    An elder scrolls (3 to 5 take your pick)
    Either a civ or minecraft? Bit torn, might drop nethack to take both and rely on DF for my rlrpg fix.

    My main concern then would be the lack of music (do we also get five records?). After that we need to resolve the steak and bacon situation. And then look for fresh water.
