Alpha Centauri
Free Space 1&2

Some of the really early 4X games were fun.

the game i play right now is eve online. more a capitalism game than anything else but hey at least it's set in space.

but i really wish there was a space game with somewhat realistic orbital physics (obviously you've gotta be able to go faster than light to make it well paced, but cmon why can't stuff orbit realistically) i can't think of any examples of one right now that has this.

Right now, the closest I get to a space related game is when I play SuperStardustHD when bored on my PS3

I don't play much anymore at all :)

I play some games from time to time but not really anything that qualifies as a "space" game.

There are 2 mmo's coming up who are sort of space related, Star Wars: The Old Republic and Star Trek Online but ten again i don't know if you can really call it space games.

Mass Effect
Mass Effect 2

The physics is not very likely faster than light travel all around, but the story lines are terrific and the spaceship is wonderful.

Besides every Star Wars game I played on the computer, I'd have to say Starcraft! :mrgreen:

I've been playing too much 20,000 Light Years Into Space recently. It's a lot of fun ;-). I also really liked Swarm for its atmosphere.
