Unlike almost everyone else who's replied so far, I've actually read the first post and seen that it says no console games :) So here's my favourite PC games of all time:

Adventure:

- Broken Sword 1 & 2
- Day of the Tentacle
- Discworld series
- Dune (it has strategy elements too, but it's more of an adventure)
- Gabriel Knight series
- Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade
- King's Quest series
- Monkey island series (discounting Escape From; it's still good but not great)
- Police Quest series
- Sam 'n' Max
- Simon the Sorcerer 1 & 2 (definitely not 3, which sadly has to be one of the worst games ever made)
- Space Quest series


FPS:

- Blood 1 (I've never actually played Blood 2, so can't comment)
- Doom series (Doom 2 would be excluded if it didn't allow add-ons because the majority of the original levels are crap)
- Dark Forces/Jedi Knight series
- Duke Nukem 3D & Atomic Addition
- Elite Force 1 & 2
- Half-Life & the Opposing Force expansion (Blue Shift would be there too if it was like 4 times longer ;) )
- Medal of Honour: Allied Assault
- Quake 1 & 2 & the Q2: The Reckoning expansion (Quake 1 would be excluded if it didn't allow add-ons)
- Return to Castle Wolfenstein
- Serious Sam 1 & 2
- Unreal 1


RPG:

- Anachronox
- Baldur's Gate series, including the expansions for both games
- Dungeon Siege
- Elder Scrolls 3: Morrowind & the Tribunal and Bloodmoon expansion
- Eye of the Beholder 1 & 2 (not 3)
- Heretic/Hexen series (although I've never played Heretic 2)
- Icewind Dale 1 & 2
- Lands of Lore 1
- Planescape Torment
- System Shock 1 & 2
- Thief 1 & 2 (okay so not really RPGs, but they have RPG elements and aren't really FPS' either)
- Ultima Series, including Underworld 1 & 2 (admittedly I've never played 1-3. BTW, this definitely does not include Ultima On-line; man I wish that game would die already!)


"Space sims" (for lack of a better genre name ;)):

- Privateer 1
- Wing Commander 1 & 2


Strategy:

- Age of Wonders 2
- Ascendancy
- Black & White
- C&C, C&C: Tiberian Sun, C&C: Red Alert 1 & 2, C&C Generals (C&C and the Red Alerts being the greatest ;) )
- Civilization series, including Alpha Centuri ('cos it's technically a Civ game ;))
- Dungeon Keeper 1 & 2
- Freedom Force
- Ghost Master
- Populous 1, 2 & The Beginning
- Starcraft & the Brood War expansion
- Syndicate
- Theme Park
- Warcraft series, including the Beyond the Dark Portal expansion (1 is extremely outdated now, but it's still excellent for its time)

hexen, counter-strike, unreal tournament (NOT 2k3), earthbound, and baldur's gate 2 are probably my top 5 (not in order) as of today.

for a top 10, add duke nukem 3D, secret of mana, heretic, unreal, and resident evil 2.

i'm in the beginning of planescape: torment (desktop thread, heh) and it may weasle it's way in there by the time i'm done with it.

tribunal was meh, but if you liked the original game, you'll love bloodmoon, seriously. morrowind's one of the better recent RPGs but i didn't include it amongst my favorites mainly because the main plotline is pretty weak and so are most of the other characters :/ still, it's a lot better than diablo2 and really fun up until you hit level 30 or so and become pretty much a god -_-

bloodmoon on the other hand was most excellent and had both a good main plot and great side quests.
