Diablo II by a mile. Game never gets old, I always play it in short spurts and it's still fun every time.

Don't know if it's anything like the games you mention, but I was just reminiscing the other day with a friend about playing the Hugo games. Loved them.

Phantasmagoria. I remember that game creeping me out in my youth. I also remember the lead girl was kind of hot.

Most any game on GOG.com (Good Old Games). They have the complete Incredible Machine lineup that I got on sale for $4 I think. I've been playing a game called Septerra Core that's a isometric RPG that's been compared to FFVII. They also carry the aforementioned Planescape: Torment, complete with mods.

@msklzannie: I can boot into XP, Vista, and 7 (32 or 64). I was thinking of some of the old Quest games.

@rlapid2112: Ha! Good point.

Oh oh oh I just thought of 2 more old series you might enjoy. One of the series should beat my upside the head since I play it EVERY DAY and never gave it a mention...

1. Simon the Sorceror - Seriously fun old school point and click adventure. I remembered this one from when I was a little girl and only recently found it again after years of searching I think on GOG. There are a few sequals to it, the second one is almost as good but I can't attest to the rest.

2. Thief Gold, Thief the Metal Age and Thief Deadly Shadows - If you are into stealth, you may never pick up another stealth game again. I play this game EVERY DAY and it's still incredibly immersive and amazing every time. I can't even count how many times I've played through the series.

But the best part...

There are HUNDREDS of Fan Missions made for this game, new ones every day that are crafted with so much patience, skill, and love, that it still rivals even the best games made today. I'm working on one myself!

@apfrehm: i plan to revisit Super Mario RPG. I have never gotten past the Power Rangers Bosses.

@wootfast: I destroyed that game, I'm glad to see it was ported over to the Wii a couple years ago, but does anyone know how well Paper Mario and Mario and Luigi did?
