I don't enjoy playing most of the old games. I enjoyed them a lot in their time but without modern conveniences like automap or easy to use inventory system they drop off my all time favorites. For example, MM3 was near the top for me for many years but now it's not close.

This isn't necessarily in order (especially the top 3)

* Baldur's Gate 2 (quintessential)
* Planescape Torment (amazing and unique)
* Star Wars Knights of the Old Republic 1 (great)

* Neverwinter Nights 2 (updated quintessential)
* Jade Empire (coming soon to PC so this counts here)
* Wizardry 8 (great)

* Star Wars Knights of the Old Republic 2 (very good)
* Neverwinter Nights (considering all the fan-made modules)
* Oblivion (best of its class)
* Baldur's Gate 1 (original quintessential)
* Ultima V Lazarus project (I know that's 11 on this list but I couldn't leave this out)

Old games which would be on the list if not for the interface/etc.

* Wizardry 7 (would top the above list if not an older game)
* Wizardry 6 (still holds up)
* Might & Magic 3 (lost its luster, great for its day)
* Lands of Lore 1 (very enjoyable)
* Eye of the Beholder 2 (very well done)

I'm probably leaving off one or two which I'm not remembering at the moment.
