4) Fallout 1/2 - Interplay
5) System Shock 2 - Irrational Games

7) Deus Ex - Ion Storm
8) Icewind Dale 1/2 - Black Isle
9) TES 3: Morrowind - Bethesda
10) Neverwinter Nights 1/2 - Bioware/Obsidian

I haven't always been anti-bethesda. I played the living shit out of Morrowind. Hundreds and hundreds of hours. Oblivion and Fallout 3 both lost me between 20 and 30 hours in. I've been told Skyrim is worth playing, maybe someday when it's really cheap. I think as I get older, though, open world games interest me less and less, I need story over character building and grinding, so I don't expect I'll get into it.

I think the best trailer I saw today was for Heart of the Swarm (the opening cinematic for the SC2 expansion, it was pretty awesome).
That's a kickass list, man. I enjoy a good rat-race grind myself but those don't come close to a story like say KOTOR or Mass Effect for me. Anyway, maybe one day someone will be able to come out with a game that incorporates both, but that might require a prohibitively long development, so probably not.

I am planning on giving ES Online a go though, because I always seem to enjoy Bethesda games right up to the point when my character stops progressing (I've discussed this too many times before). The trailer itself was pretty epic, almost up to par with Blizzard.
