If you are a "true" hardcore gamer, you could try some roguelikes games(especially in Ascii :O, there are a lot. ex: Dwarf Fortress).

DF is IMHO too complex for beginners. Start with DoomRL, ADOM, or my beloved ToME. Smile(or some "new school rogues" like Don't Starve, Project Zomboid, FTL etc)

Btw I remember my very first characters in Baldurs Gate - 12-13 years ago >.<

As far as old RPG's go,I used to play Evil Islands(2001) and Sacrifice(2000; this is more of an RTS with RPG elements but it's a great game imo)a lot; I know these aren't the "old school classics" that everybody's heard of,like Baldur's Gate etc,to be honest I don't know any other people who played these 2 games aside from a friend of mine,and he too only knows them because I showed them to him. I think these games are both really good(not only due to nostalgia and stuff,they're actually fun to play)and I believe they deserve some recognition.

Other than that,I love Gothic 1 & 2. I've recently finished Gothic(for like the hundredth time)and I'm thinking about playing the sequel(...again).

Beautiful list.
I just started the Gothic serie a few weeks ago, finished the first and playing the second right now: AMAZING ! I won't be able to touch an Elder Scroll now...

About roguelike, of course, Dwarf Fortress must be played (not so difficult nowdays, thanks to all the Utube tutorials), but furthermore, Dungeon Crawl Stone Soup !!!

The best roguelike I have ever played, and it is free Smile It is a Nethack^10

There is also the promising Cataclysm, a survival roguelike which mix Fallout and Left4Dead : really cool but still in dev and too buggy for the moment
