I'd still rank things like the originals in the Quake, Doom and Wolfenstein series' above Black, but that's only due to their originality at the times of their release and of course a hefty dose of nostalgia. Still, Black would fit pretty high up on any list of mine. Its only real negatives to me was the [extremely] short storyline and the lack of multiplayer, whether it be local or internet multiplayer.
