8. Neverwinter Nights

This was the first (and only) successful endeavor to bring the 3rd edition of D&D to PC. It drew in a lot of eager players who were getting tired of the old infinity engines and desperately in need of something fresh. The expansions only served to better the original, as did the sequel. You see, when Neverwinter Nights 2 came out, it was a bit messy and clunky. This had most of the players run back to the older one.

What really got this game it's huge number of plays is the amount of user generated content. Bioware released a level editor for Neverwinter Nights and the community exploded. For a good several years new modules (maps) were being released, even custom campaigns on an epic scale. There were contests for the best modules too! If you stop by on the NWNVault, you can find that there is still new stuff being added, even today.
