    What about the famous old Duke Nuken 3D... from way back in '95?
    I wish I still had the install CD. It was only a 25MB game too.

    I like that you have quake on there though.

    Half-life and its mods are some of the bets I have ever played! I got into a few Morrowind mods for a while back in the day.

    I think it was a minor mistake to only mention one of the Elder Scrolls games. To mention Morrowind and leave out Oblivion which is still a steadily growing mod community with some of the most GORGEOUS third party mods seems like a missed point. I figured since you mentioned a part 1 and 2 of another game series, this part 3 and 4 of this one are on the same type of footing.

    there is one game series for the flighsim community that has to be included: the thirdwire series (Strikefighters: project 1, Wings over Vietnam, Wings over Europe )

    with many widely available mods you can turn the original game (windows 98 era) and turn it into something that kicks microsoft's CFS3 (and possibly CFS4 whenever that gets released) out the door and yells 'come back when you look decent!'

    the best starting point is from Wings over Europe (and a concurrent WoV install is possible since they use the same engine and content subfolders) and then heading over to the CombatACE and Checksix forums where most of the modding for the series is centered.

    another old but highly (read: completely redone by mods) game is Freespace 2, the source code project has turned the game (again a 95/98 era game) into something that looks like it was made recently.

    There's a very big difference between the most moddable games and the most modded.

    I personally think UT99 was one of the most modded games, so many map-packs, skins, add-ons were released that it was unbelievable.

    Especially ChaosUT

    The French word "adieu" means goodbye ;)

    Correct spelling would be "ado" :p

    well, he IS a goddamned genius from MIT with a PhD.

    besides, the characterisation of the hero in HL isn't important - which is why he never speaks. game makes it as easy as possible for the player to project himself onto gordon - hence why he is so nondescript.

    I never really paid that much attention to the whole gordon thing, the gameplay was just so awesome!

    Started playing CS from 0.5 or 0.6 when it was still very beta, but we played it over coax for weeks :rock:

    The co-op mod was great aswell.......aah so were all the other great ones, there are so much of them.

    Let's not forget Command & Conquer Generals. Map editor, and many communities recreating other games within the engine, eg Halo.

    Even 3 years after the release of HL2 (and coming up on a decade for HL1) I'm still playing the damn mods of that game.

    Also, Gordon is a great name.

    Yes, I was going to comment on that. :)

    Ah, makes me want to play NWN again... (despite disliking the original games quest quite a bit...)
