How deep is the RTS element on its own? I might give it a shot.

I'm adding one to the list.

Turn based top down space trading and combat game/3D RTS/third person shooter/text adventure/arcade shooter
Space Rangers 2
Quite frankly you need to play this. It's one of the deepest most complex games ever created, it's all things to all men, all at once. It really is all those categories in one game, and it makes them work. Easily one of the most overlooked and under appreciated games ever made.

I bought it, and I didnt like all the fucked up puzzles you had to do. Too much reading for me

The RTS part isn't that deep on it's own, it's fairly simple, and extremely difficult at times. But since you can manually control any unit at any time you can have some fun with it.

And yes, the text adventure parts does require a lot of reading, and an IQ above banana. Luckily there are guides for all of them. I don't always have the patience to do them either, so I FAQ through those parts. There is some really funny stuff in the text adventures tho, reminiscent of old Lucas Arts adventures in style and humor, writing is actually pretty good.

Sounds really neat. How good is the storyline?

"You're a space ranger, evil robots are killing every one and taking over the universe, stop them."

The overall story is about as stock as they come, but most missions and dialogue is pretty well written, especially for an eastern European game.

Descent 2 (Or maybe 3)

Both SP and MP was a lot of fun and still is today.  Hopefully the Fallout MMO will be released and make some money for Interplay. Right now it looks like most of the money will be spent in court. If they do get a few bucks out of it maybe they can make a new Descent game.

I never tried Descent in multiplayer, so I wouldn't know which is best, but as far as singleplayer goes, the first Descent gets my vote.

I'll start with... DUNGEON KEEPER I!

Fixed.

You sellout bitch, Dungeon Keeper I deserves to be played more than DKII, DKI had a lot of bugs but Some guys have been working on something called 'KeeperFX' which changes a lot of shit to DKI one making it more stable and more balanced.
Unlike the unstable and almost-unrepairable DKII, fucking Peter.M! He ruined what Dungeon Keeper could have been!

For KeeperFX go here: http://www.keeperklan.com/forums/52-KeeperFX


Transport Tycoon, christ. That game. I daren't play it just for the fact that I'll get sucked into it for 5 hours straight.


Hear hear. TT was one of the best simcity style games ever. I remember having sleepless nights while playing it. Would love to get modern version of it.

I wish there would be Space Rangers 3

But on other hand, back to the topic.

X-wing and TIE fighter. Best space simulators ever. period.

X-wing vs TIE fighter were more multiplayer game than a single player one.
X-wing alliance was good one also. But still original ones were best.
