    Probably metal gear solid for the story line and network counter-strike for the sheer playability.

    There's also minesweeper's namesake, of course. I've wasted plenty of time w/ that and the other free games bundled w/ Windows. Those and Bejeweled.

    Anyone remember Spy vs Spy? That was gooooood!! Gotta be one of the contenders for most playable games ever accounting for technology limitations of the time.

    One of my favorite games for the PC has to be Warzone 2100. I just enjoyed building units (tanks, planes, etc) and researching new stuff and then blowing the .......... out of the other person

    Recently, I've become addicted to the Tigers Woods 2003 golf game for my PS2.
