- X3 Reunion (CODEA any1?)
- Homeworld (mainly the 2nd, Desserts of Khaak was so disappointing...)
- Space Engineers (brought me here in the frist place)
- Sins of a Solar Empire (the Halo-Mod was epic!)
- WingCommander (WC3 on PS1 had a fking 45min. closing credits even listening the "Assistant of the Assintant Chef"!! oh, and its usually my Goodnight-Movie...)
- Luck is no matter of coincidence or probability, but of attitude and perspective ! -

Freelancer MP was GOAT. Used to play on the Freelancer Universe server back in the day when it was populated (50/50 regularly) and I've never had a better time playing any game, ever. Sadly, the population has dwindled down to nothing. The sun has set, all I have now are memories.  :(

Others include:
Sins of a Solar Empire (love it but I wish it were more 3D)
FTL (really enjoyed the crew/energy/module management)
Flotilla (the turn based 3D space combat is amazing)
X-Wing and Tie Fighter (yes, I'm old)
Star Ruler (the ship and station blueprints/customization of the original were out of this world)

(edit) Duskers (wasn't sure if it would count! I play with the lights out and a lit up keyboard, the atmosphere is incredible! call me old fashioned, but I really enjoy typing command strings. reminds me of DOS!)

Cheers!

#1 TIE Fighter including addons
#2 XW:A (never finished it and can´t get it to run anymore)
#3 Master of Orion 2
#4 X-Wing including the addons (nope, never blew the deathstar up, too difficult at my age at that time)
#5 Wing Commander and any spinoff like Privateer
#6 FreeSpace 1&2 (my god, that editor...superb)
#7 I-War 1&2

# beyond rating b-cuz they are timeless masterpieces:
- Battlecruiser 3000 AD original or remake...
- Star Trek 25th aniversary
- Star Trek Judgement rites
- Star Trek Bridge Commander
- Star Trek A final unity
- Star Trek (heavily modded) Armada 1&2 (a modded #2 had [Tactical] Fusion CUBES!!!!!!!111!!!!!) basically your ST C&C and everything a hardcore fan could hope for
- Star Trek Elite Force 1&2

epic hall of fame:

lest we forget....you pittyful INSECTS...

System Shock 1&2

shdn:\\remember\citadel

Spoiler: show


no honestly...System Shock for me is THE game of all times...so intense in every aspect...giving me the shivers since 1994 to present (cuz I do play them from time to time)

and now Warren Spector is doing part 3....talk about the "joy of the mass" ey?^^
can´t wait

S.H.O.D.A.N.(*) even exist today as a google-type site that querries machines connected to the www

breaking the 4th wall  8) on a f´ing planetary scale...try beating that...
