I try to base my "best ever" lists on things I have to come back and re-experience time and again...which gives new games a bit of a disadvantage, but that's life.

In no particular order:

-Diablo II/LOD
-Warcraft III
-Gabriel Knight: Sins of the Father
-Monkey Island (I and II)
-Quest for Glory (III and IV)

Oh, and a special mention for Full Throttle, which is a MUCH older, seriously underrated, Lucasarts creation. RIP Lucasarts.

Don't know how I can name just 5 so I am going to cheat and include series.

1: Mass Effect series.
2: Half Life series
3: Witcher Series
4: Counter Strike Source
5: This one is too hard..... Hearts of Iron 3

There I named 5 but could name a hell of a lot more.

Man, that's hard to choose. Most of the games are old but...

Bard's Tale
Wizardry
Final Fantasy (hard to pick which one)
Gran Turismo
M.U.L.E

Honorable mentions: Rubies Of Eventide - Great online MMORPG (or whatever the hell they are called). Great community and a very intricate game. A shame it's no longer around.

Demise: Rise of the Ku'tan. Dungeon crawler that's still around and evolving. Not the best graphics but has lasted the test of time and will even scare you once in a while.
