Armagetron - 3D Action (Racing/Strategy)

In this game, you ride a lightcycle around the game grid. You can only make sharp turns of 90 degrees and a wall constantly builds up after you. Make your enemies crash into your wall, but be aware that they are trying to do the same to you. Only if you are fast enough, you may be able to trap them; but the only way to speed up your lightcycle is to drive close to the dangerous walls. Prepare for exciting strategic preparations followed by action-packed close combat!

You don't have to be. :)

Another popular variant of these Nehack / Roguelike games is ZAngband, with more elements from JRR Tolkien's mythology.

The Battle for Wesnoth - [Turn-Based Strategy]

A very fun, high quality and very polished, original strategy game. Destroy the enemy's leader to win while taking advantage of unit types and weaknesses, time of day, and the type of terrain. Capture villages to gain more gold and recruit more units, which gain experience (and have multiple upgrades) as they fight. Includes a Battle.net like multiplayer matchmaking service that allows you to host behind firewalls.

Those bubble ones are just spin-offs of the original Bubble Bobble, am I right?

Blobwars: Metal Blob Solid [2d platform game]

Since their world was invaded by an alien race, the Blobs have faced a lifetime of war. But now they have a chance to win the war once and for all.

In Blob Wars : Metal Blob Solid, you take on the role of a fearless Blob agent, Bob. Bob's mission is to infiltrate the various enemy bases around the Blobs' homeworld and rescue as many MIAs as possible. But standing in his way are many vicious aliens, other Blobs who have been assimilated and the evil alien leader, Galdov.

UFO: Alien Invasion [turn-based, multiplayer support]

UFO: ALIEN INVASION is a strategy game featuring tactical combat against hostile alien forces which are about to infiltrate earth at this very moment. You are in command of a small special unit which has been founded to face the alien strike force. To be successful on the long run, you will also have to have a research team study the aliens and their technologies in order to learn as much as possible about their technology, their goals and the aliens themselves.

'UFO: Alien Invasion' is heavily inspired by the 'X-COM' series by Mythos and Microprose. The first game of the series, 'UFO DEFENSE', became a classic and, in our honest opinion, is one of the best games ever made.
'UFO: Alien Invasion' is neither a sequel nor a remake of 'UFO DEFENSE' - we simply had the urge to create a similar strategy game, which will hopefully be as entertaining as the original was for the players (and for the developers, of course ;) ).

PlaneShift and NeverWinterNights.
There're probably some more, I'm not really into this kind of games so I have never felt like searching further.
