Planescape Torment. It's actually not particularly old (12/1999), but enbodies everything I like about RPGs from the past. A captivating story, interesting characters, well written dialogue, locations I wanted and had the chance to explore, choices that mattered, creative and distinct spells and so on.

The three years older Diablo, however, is already 'new school' in my eyes. Not a bad game, but it started a trend of simplification that is still predominant today.

I am sure there are many good reasons why some people consider Diablo 'old school', though, and 'Dragon Age' will certainly enter the 'old school' domain one day. It's not really a very helpful adjective…
