What PC game that is not on Steam you'd like to see on Steam in the near future?

System Shock. I already have the game, but only on pirate (System Shock Portable, the fan made all-in-one package, where the game is made to run on any PC, and with controls altered to suit us modern gamers), and it's not right that such a great game isn't available for legal sale (well, unless you get lucky and find a still working disc on ebay). Steam, Good Old Games, etc, have made it so easy to get working versions of so many PC classics for a reasonable price, and it's a real pity that System Shock 1 isn't available (though thankfully the brilliant System Shock 2 is).
System Shock 1 really is amazing. I tried to re-play it from an original disk (which I still have) but the controls have not aged well for me. After an hour I still could not get a handle on the awkwardness. I felt like I was controlling a spaceship instead of a person. The modernized WASD/mouse control mod really made the game much more enjoyable and fluid for me. I just cranked up the enemy difficult for the adjusted handicap.

All these are great. I would like the Star Trek games too. I miss Starfleet Command and Bridge Commander.
Are we not men?
I second Grim Fandango.
Come on people. It is a freaking crime that this game is not out there for people to play.

They need to hurry up and release it.

This. Not being on Steam is an extremely lame reason for missing out on ME3. Just hearing that makes me want to use Balefire on a hipster (bonus points if you get the reference)

Totally agree with a whole bunch of these, especially Starfleet Command. Another classic PC game that deserves a Steam rerelease would be Freelancer, for sure; it's terrible that M$ has forced people to pirate the game to play it, and it'd be awesome if Freelancer was made available on Steam due to allowing a whole bunch of new people to enjoy the best (at this moment) open world space sim out there.
I'd also love to see all of the old school D&D games ported to Steam too. It'd be even more amazing if NWN was given Steam Workshop support, too, as that would really enhance the game's community aspect.
I feel like I've done this a dozen times on here but...
American McGee's Alice
Clive Barker's Undying
Severance: Blade of Darkness
Arcanum: Of Steamworks and Magick Obscura
Betrayal at Krondor
Day of the Tentacle
Gabriel Knight series
and of course...
Dungeons & Dragons Anthology: The Master Collection
-Baldur's Gate (enhanced version already on Steam)
-Baldur's Gate II (enhanced version coming to Steam)
-Icewind Dale 2
-The Temple of Elemental Evil
Probably some others too.
