Doesn't non standalone require Arrowhead? I believe they're patching 3 and OA to work fine, but vanilla would only allow you to connect if you knew the IP.

BF2, Borderlands, Arma 2 & 3, Crysis and GTA IV to name a few, I'd be surprised if you've not played any of those.

Here's another thread on it with a list of the titles.
