The gameplay is buggy as hell, but it's very fun.

At first it may seem like a mediocre GTA clone, but the story is fucking awesome, about friendship and betrayal. There are very big chances that you will CRY MANLY TEARS at the ending, like I did

|Continuing the plot of Quake 2 (1 and 3 have unrelated plots), you're a space marine fighting the Stroggs, a conquering cyborg alien race. It got a bit of an underwhelming reception, but it's actually very fun. It's more linear and "cinematic" than its predecessor, but still feels old-school enough (no auto-healing or weapon limit bullshit).

|Take control of a city as its Mayor, and try to expand whilst keeping the residents happy. The bigger your population, the bigger your dick becomes. However, unlike Simcity 2000, this game has an active modding community.

|A sprawling RPG featuring a surreal and imaginative setting. This is open world gameplay at its best. Despite the gameworld's huge size, it is painstakingly detailed. The game allows for many different playstyles. Be warned however, that the combat is rather clunky and dicebased. Regardless, if you let it, Morrowind will immerse you like no other game out there. This game also has a very devoted modding community. Be sure to check out [http://planetelderscrolls.gamespy.com/ Planet Elder Scrolls] for mods that strike your interest. A vanilla playthrough is recommended for new players.

|As compared to the fantastical setting of Morrowind, Oblivion is set in a rather plain western Europe-esque land (supposed to be a jungle, according to lore). Still, the game is a solid sandbox-style RPG, and plays much more action-oriented than its pen-and-paper-based predecessor. As always with Bethesda's Elder Scrolls games, there are mods out the wazoo for those that want them--mods to fix the leveling system, to increase variety in monsters and in the game world, to improve the graphics, and to add quests. The various add-ons to the game are nothing big, but the expansion pack, The Shivering Isles, shows the same level of creative genius that went into Morrowind.
