    Arma: Cold War Assault (formerly OpFlash:CWC). OK, the graphics are rough as fuck, but its got one of the best SP campaigns in an FPS ever.

    Grand Prix Legends is still the king of all driving games.

    Falcon 4 (or better its latter already modded re-release) is still the emperor of all flying simulators, as no other game came close to replicate its AWESOME campaign.

    Steel Panthers is still a fantastic strategic game. Operational Art of War is still the best wargame EVAH.

    If you can survive the graphic shock, I still find the X-Wing / Tie Fighter games to be just as AWESOME as when they were released.

    Oh, and most graphic adventure haven't lost their magic after all this time.

    For Falcon 4, if you want the best mods, hunt down the original. Then you can get BMS, which is amazing. Allied Force is pretty much un-moddable.

    1 for freespace 2. (with mods)
    Also the Enemy Engaged series if you like flight (again with mods)

    The world is going mad. Me? I'm doing fine.

    I still find that Quake can be worth a play now and then.

    Would also agree with other posts here, Master Of Orion 2 and Neverwinter Nights.

    Also, if you can get it to run, the original Grand Theft Auto is a blast

    Arcanum is a great game. It was a bit broken when it first came out but it's been largely fixed. I loved the fantasy industrial revolution setting with guns and machines against magic.

    I second Master of Orion 2
    and raise a Jagged Alliance 2, again...

    damn the thread already mentioned the best, hmm

    If you are into first person RPGs I'd say Arx Fatalis,
    not to forget the Thief series and for a sim try Rollercoaster Tycoon!

    Deus Ex, of course.

    Red Alert 2 is excellent.

    Morrowind as well, there's a fuckton of mods for it.

    Panzer General - Loved this game back in the day. Just a shame I cant get it working on Win 7
    I was looking for this the other day and found Panzer Corps. New game old play style. It's really great and remembers me of the good old days of Panzer General.

    First part of Gothic also is great game. I liked its plot very much. It is very interesting and original.

    I installed this recently but the main character had black clothes as the textures were missing couldn't find a way to fix it so deleted it. Shame as I really wanted to play it finally :(

    Missed this the first time around. I only ever once completed a lap without spinning out and bursting into flames and I was drenched in sweat and cursing through gritted teeth the entire way. Some people might like that shit, but it's not for me.

    Anachronox is still brilliant.

    I think you can nab it from GOG.

    Yeah I got the Steam version to, can't find any reference to anyone else having the problem either. Very odd issue, perfect in every other way as a far as I can see, just the clothes textures and only on Jimmy himself none of the NPCs. :(

    Could it be a driver update or graphics card issue?
