    Oooh, tricky. I honestly can't think of a single game I've played that you haven't. Even down to obscure stuff like truck dismount (still got a higher score than you, result!).

    In fact the ONLY game (given a lot of thought) I can think of I don't think you've played is Evil Genius, and I wouldn't even recommend that. Lol.

    Z (yup thats it just Z old game but i loved every minute of it plus it was very different for its time and the humour in the game was awesome)

    This'll be quite difficult - there are those of us who are so lazy we don't play things you haven't reviewed and recommended. :p

    Forged Alliance! I'm fairly sure bit-tech hasn't reviewed it. If they/you have, ignore me!

    Oh, and also Just Cause (free-roaming GTA style on tropical island). It's got some flaws and gets repetitive but if you just go with the helicopter-hijacking flow it's great fun for a while.

    After clearing out me old room at my parents house I came across my hoard of old games. Amongst a whole load, two that caught my eye were the Tex Murphy adventures - Under a Killing Moon and the sequel Pandora Directive. It's been a while since I played them, (I should fire them up in DosBox soon!), but they were very entertaining with the dry sense of humour, the tricky puzzles and of course all of the 6 CD spanning FMV, which was all the rage at the time.

    Enter the Matrix. It's kind of crappy, but if you like the movies, it's also a little bit cool.

    I'm sure I've seen reviews of both Just Cause and Enter The Matrix. Maybe it wasn't Joe's though! :p

    Not played that, so it's on the list.

    Another game I've been meaning to play.

    Played (and blogged about) multiples times.

    Played Enter the Matrix, but not Just Cause = on the list.

    Not played either of those, though I have heard of them. On the list.

    This is my favourite suggestion - I've been meaning to play this for a LONG time. Jordan Mechner is one of my favourite designers and, from what I hear, if you're willing to embrace the game's unusual mechanic then it's almost infinitely replayable.

    Keep them coming!

    Possibly the most underrated game of all time was X Wing Alliance. Really top game. If you enjoy that also look at Starlancer. Underrated game!

    How about Tribes Vengeance? That was an oft overlooked game with a Shakespearean quality single player story line. Plus, in how many other games do you get to play as a completely unarmed 10 year old girl (only for a little while though...)?

    Other than that, come to the dark side, play some Diablo 2...
