Heroes of Might and Magic 2. Everyone always sings the praises of HoMM3, but I just love the 2nd and its expansion more.

One day, when I am too old for adventuring, I will settle down and open up a little armor shop called, "Victorious Secret."

I'd say for myself, Civilization II: Test of Time fits that same thing. It's my all-time favorite Civ game, but most people rave about the others, like IV.

Any time conversations about mech games come up, MW4 is almost *always* mentioned - MW4: Mercenaries, specifically. It's pretty much considered the epitome of mech games by most people I've seen.

Every time I see mech talk it's always Armored Core or Gundam.

Heroes of Might and Magic 4 is my favorite of the series. The hated black sheep.

Eric the Unready would be my first choice (a text-adventure game released in 1993). It's still, by far, the funniest game I have ever played, and is the ultimate geek-culture parody (mainly being a fantasy spoof, but there's also plenty of sci-fi references, as well as movie nods, and Monty Python humor, etc).

A second choice would be King's Quest VI: Heir Today, Gone Tomorrow (released in 1992). I know there's tons of "better" point-and-click-adventures out there (all of which I love), but KQ6 has always been at the top of my list. I played through it multiple times back when I was a wee nine-year-old lad, and still remember most of the puzzles fondly.

My last choice (because I can't settle on just one) is Bad Mojo (released in 1996). You're a cockroach . . . it's as simple as that. Bad Mojo is dark, gritty, weird, and mostly pointless; but I was in awe of it's absurdity the minute I laid eyes on it.

. . . methodical, exacting, and worst of all, patient.

Its hard to say really as I like games that were popular in the 90's but not mainstream so not a classic in the sense someone would remember a Sonic or Mario game

I like Jones In The Fast Lane, Discworld 1 and 2 and many others I cant remember apart from Dare to Dream 2 and 3 and rockstar.

Monster Bash..... I played the hell out of that game
Super Solvers
Treasure Mountain


I think it might be considered a classic but...The Incredible Machine, as well as Total Annihilation 1

Jetfighter 2 might be considered a classic by some but I'm not sure just how popular it actually was.
Such a great dos sim way back when.
Can be found on myabandonware.com if anyone feels the need to have a blast from the past. I highly recommend your own music though :P
