Yep, it's Dark Forces 2: Jedi Knight.

It actually uses the Quake 3 Engine.

This definitely is Full Throttle.

EDIT
Since my last one obviously was too obscure, let's try this:

The hand, the hand! Isn't that Warren Spector and DW Bradley's infamous lovechild Cybermage?

Yup, it sure looks like Cybermage. Jaz, your last one was Strife, I believe - it's not that obscure anymore, at least not if you hang around on different rpg sites.

Cybermage and Strife - that's right . Both were real gems (if you like this type of hybrids, of course). Great that some of my favorite games get the respect they deserve… even if it's years after they went gold…

Ah yes, here's another one (hardly obscure, but… obscure in several other ways):

Correct, those are three of the five games pictured.

Half right … it is Jedi Knight 2 (from 2002, Dark Forces 2: Jedi Knight was 1997). It does use the Q3A engine. The Netbook optimization gives wonderful performance … but not the tops in terms of graphics …

I actually misread his post, and then typed the same thing. I honestly thought he was referring to Jedi Knight 2.

I get the feeling that maybe he did mean Jedi Knight 2 though, because it's unlikely that anyone would mistake the first Jedi Knight for using the Unreal Engine.

Man, I'm not getting any of these. Probably because I used to use a Mac exclusively around the time that most of these came out. Here's a fun one I used to play in school with friends. Shouldn't be too hard if you're an old Mac user.

OK, this one is a shooter, but set in a medieval context. I include it because it's one of the worst games ever made. You haven't seen a really bad game unless you've tried this one. I have.
