    Quake2 & Quake3 Multiplayer. Those are the only 2 games I'd ever need. It's like a sport because it's always fun to play and you can never get too good at it.

    And chess because it's intriguing and challenging. Always fun to watch the grandmasters play.

    It looks like new games from new video game systems dominate the lists. Here's my more nostalgic list (in no particular order of preference):

    - any Mega Man game for the NES (even if I've never played it)
    - Super Mario Bros. 3 (NES/SNES - Super Mario All Stars)
    - Final Fantasy I (NES)
    - Crystallis (NES)
    - The Legend of Zelda (NES)
    - Secret of Mana (SNES)
    - The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past
    - Street Fighter II Turbo: Hyper Fighting (SNES and others)
    - Super Smash Bros. (N64, recent but it's still good even if you don't like cartoony stuff)
    - Super Mario Kart (SNES)
    - Mario Kart 64 (N64)
    - Super Mario World (SNES)
    - Mega Man X (SNES)
    - Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles II (NES, arcade)
    - The Simpsons game (arcade)
    - Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles IV: Turtles in Time (SNES)
    - Warcraft II/Warcraft II Expansion (MS-DOS)
    - Diablo (Win32)
    - Age of Empires I and II (including expansions)

    And I could keep going. I haven't liked most the recent generations of games (Nintendo 64, Sega Saturn, and Sony Playstation 1 onwards) though.

    I like Animal Crossing for GCN. Kingdom Hearts (PS2) would be better without Disney charecters.

    Operation Flashpoint is the current LAN favorite.

    All time favorite was System Shock.
