Sim City 2000 was great. I liked HIND and The Elder Scrolls: Arena and THES II: Daggerfall.

phew, lots. A whole amount of LucasArts Adventures (what the hell happened to LAs Adventure department anyway :O )

DosBox is a great tool to play all those classics. A few days ago I finished Syndicate again.

Awesome game.
