    I've gotta say that my favourite games at the moment are:

    -Half life Seires (can't get enough of it at the moment)
    -Torchlight (loving the diablo style game play and the awesome cartoony graphics)
    -Flight Simulator 2004 (I'm a geek for flight sim games. FS2004 is better then FSX, runs smoother more mods avaible for it)
    -AVP Classic 2000 (just picked this up on steam, can't stop playing it at the moment)

    Half Life 2 - no explanation needed .
    Fear - fantastic fps game
    GTA 3 - no explanation needed .
    Unreal Tournament - Another great fps game
    And Max Payne (First one) - Fantastic game, also innovative (the time delay/shooting)

    My favourite was Flight Simulator 4 (a looooooooooong time ago). It had an expansion pack that let you build custom planes! You could put enormous engines on a little wooden plane that weighed nothing. You could slam the throttle and it would take off in about 2 seconds :)

    I also made a really good jet that was very fast and I tried to race computer controlled planes around Chicago. I miss that game.

    Top 5 PC games ever:

    Team Fortress - I have always sucked at death match, this quake mod was revolutionary and really emphasised squad play for the first time

    Counter Strike Source - Counter Strike Source is better than Counter Strike

    Battlefield 2 - Wasted weeks playing this, level up was genius

    Call of Duty - This series has great single player campaigns, Stalingrad is the daddy

    Portal - Really just a joyous experience from start to finish

    Pretty tough decision tho, I mostly play strategy and RTS and the moment but they don't even get a look in, maybe that's nostalgia.

    You could design your own planes! That would be an awesome feature for FS2004 and FSX, I'd love to be able to give the 737 a bit more speed, and ensure that fspassengers doesn't complain!

    Doh! I left out Call of Duty: Modern Warfare, that has to be in there for me (say No. 3). Crew Expendable, Shock and Awe, All Ghillied Up, those were some of my favourite single player missions so far. Must replay them actually.

    1.Half Life 2
    Fantastic FPS, fun from start to finish, nothing beats it.

    2.Guild Wars
    Great RPG with fun multiplayer and a great story with an amazing artstyle.

    3.Unreal Tournament
    Fun fast paced FPS with a great modding community, 2004 was also just as good as the original IMO.

    4.Command and Conquer Red Alert 2
    My idea of a perfect RTS, fun base building and just pure greatness.

    5.World of Warcraft
    Played too much by many but when looked at as a normal game, is immense and interesting.

    Here's my top 5 PC games:

    1. Half Life 2
    Half Life was the first PC game I played and it seemed to take me ages to get through it. It was a task and a half, but great fun. Half Life 2 just raised the bar so much at the time it was unreal and still stands head and shoulders above other games half its equal.

    2. Prince of Persia:Sands of Time
    Very fluid gameplay and a great story with strong characters. The combat could get a little tricky but the way you solved puzzles to progress made you want to keep going into the wee hours.

    3. Call of Duty 2
    Bullets pinging past my ears while storming the beach. It felt incredibly realistic and pressed unto me the sheer need to survive and push through the defences.

    4. Roller Coaster Tycoon 3
    Actually getting down to it and creating a money-making, succesful park is very rewarding. You can have fun and create huge coasters, careering punters skyward, hearing them shriek in horror as the train leaves the track. Moohaha.

    5. Day of Defeat
    I got quite good playing the original and found myself on a few leaderboards. Alas, 'twas many moons ago, but it was brilliant fun at the time.
