My list would include the following:

Duke Nukem series (1 to 3D)
Doom 1 & 2
Wolfenstein 3D
Commander Keen series
Wacky Wheels
Twisted Metal 2
Day of the Tentacle
Bio-Menace
Crystal Caves
Syndicate (plus American Revolt)
Strike Commander (plus Tactical Operations)
Wing Commander series
Privateer series
WarCraft 1 & 2
The Incredible Machine
One Must Fall 2040
Primal Rage
Raptor: Call of the Shadows
Major Stryker

I've got quite a few of these as originals and the rest from either abandonware sites or simply just the shareware versions. Nothing that DOSBox can't sort out.

Forgot about console games:

Super Mario 3
Twin Bee
Baseball (Nintendo's version)
Tennis (Nintendo's version)
Mighty Bomb Jack
Double Dragon 3
Dig Dug 2
Battle City
Silkworm
1942
Star Soldier
Xevious
Bubble Bobble
Tag Team Wrestling
Ice Climber
Mappy
Streets of Rage 2

I've really been longing for Quarantine.... T'was the first 'GTA type' game I ever remember.
Also Raptor. Top down shooter/scroller. Lost a lot of time on that in school.

Old America's Army. (Was amazing)

All the other games you guys are mentioning I played most of them, they just so dated and ugly I don't really miss them. I actually tried to play Police Quest again and man it's nearly impossible to believe how good those quest series were.

Those were amazing! I also miss the old SWAT games, remember 1 and 2 really well.

SWAT 3 was the FPS while 1 & 2 were turned based, if I'm not mistaken. I remember the Sierra logo when firing up SWAT2 :D

edit: not turn based but RTS rather

..... then you must remember Quake and Doom?

Yea, played Quake/Doom at LANS. Mostly just the arena type matches though. Didn't much like the game itself. Duke Nukem 3D though was AWESOME!
