Out of the bunch, I have to say Starcraft.
Those games rocked my life!

Anybody still remember Wing Commander??? I remember going out trying to find the best joystick at the time to play this thing....

I wonder how it will run with a 6800GS?

Good poll. Although it makes me feel pretty old because, as others have pointed out, most of the options are not really "old school" at all unless you're under 20 years old. I selected Starcraft off of the list, but even that is stretching "old school". IMHO, if a game was playable in any resolution higher than 320x240, it's too new to be called old school!

Here are some real old school games, including some mentioned by others already. For series, I only list the first game in the series.

RTS:
Warcraft - not War3, that's only a few years old!
C&C - not Red Alert, the original kicks RA's butt

Action:
Doom - Well, duh
X-Wing
Wing Commander

RPG:
Ultima - Apple ][ forever! Best old-school RPG series
Wizardry - more Apple ][, the original 3D dungeon crawler

Adventure:
7th Guest - Made CD-ROM drives a must-have peripheral
Zork - the granddaddy of them all w/ a text interface - w00t!
