Hmm, well, it's been awhile since my last play, but I like to go through Quest For Glory 1 to 4 in one go (I don't usually bother with 5). Very hard to install and work on Vista, but thank the Holy Monkey for DOSBox.

Sword of the Samurai is even older, but I always end up playing a few games of that at a time. My favorite part is the "one samurai vs. overwhelming numbers" scenario.

Pokémon Red, Pokémon Blue, and Pokémon Yellow (Pikachu edition) for the Nintendo Game Boy Color. Grind heaven. I'm never bored while riding a bus.

[Edit: then again, those are handheld games, not PC games. In the PC category, I'd have to say Diablo II, just like many others here. I also get pwned regularly playing NetHack, and I still enjoy a session of Escape Velocity: Nova from time to time. I also sometimes fire up an Apple IIe emulator I downloaded, on which I still play Ultima IV.]

I'm seriously thinking of buying CS 1.6, it's still the best shooter ever made. The problem is that it's almost impossible to play pirated online. Too much hassle, and it costs like, what, 10 bucks? Might do that soon.  :)  I used to play Civ II like crazy, until I got Civ IV.

9.95 on Steam, but you can probably find it cheaper elsewhere.

I've just started playing through the Secret of Monkey Island and Beneath a Steel Sky.

Oh man, Beneath a Steel Sky is my favourite adventure game. It's really clever, I was absolutely stoked when I saw someone had created a version for ScummVM.
