23 – Doom (1983)

22 – Unreal Tournament (1999)

21 – Deus Ex (2000)

20 – Grim Fandango (1998)

19 – Fallout (1997)

18 – System Shock 2 (1999)

17 – Crysis (2007)

16 – Starcraft (1998)

15 – Command & Conquer (1995)

14 – Company of Heroes (2006)

13 – The Sims (2000)

12 – World of Warcraft (2004)

11 – SimCity (1989)

10 – Call of Duty (2003)

9 – MechWarrior 2: 31st Century Combat (1995)

6 – Half Life (1998)

5 – Battlefield 1942 (2002)

4 – Baldurs Gate II: Shadows of Amn (2000)

3 – Civilization IV (2005)

2 – Star Wars TIE Fighter (1994)

1 – X-COM: UFO Defense (1994)

I think this is a fairly solid list, although there are one or two surprises.  Firstly I’m shocked to see World of Warcraft so far down the list (I expected it to easily make the top 5), and also the amount of retro games appearing.  I guess you can never beat the classics.
