First off, it seems there's a desperate need to do this in a more organized way, preferably one that doesn't involve the CDProjekt guys scanning posts manually to generate statistics. A poll of some kind, perhaps?
So, on to the actual games:
- King of Dragon Pass: it's a unique game, and the only way you can buy it now is by bothering their customer support for a copy - not exactly ideal.
- Arcanum: self-explanatory, I believe. If it came with Drog's unofficial patch, even better. Maintaining compatibility with it would be necessary in either case, it really fixes lots of issues with the game.
- Outcast: a forgotten gem, a PC game that has not been surpassed in some ways even to this day. This is how an immersive, cinematic game should be done; not just focusing on graphics, but paying attention to NPC behaviour, lore, and minimalizing meta-game aspects.
- X-Com: Not sure whether it's even possible now that it's on Steam, but it would be a nice addition. I know I would pay that whole extra $1 to not have to deal with Steam's DRM, anyway.
- Dark Omen/Shadow of the Horned Rat: Almost forgot these. Great games, with painful compatibility issues.
