Default Games you just couldn't wait for

I saw this topic on [H] and thought I'd bring it over here just for fun.

What are some games that you just COULD NOT wait to get your grubby lil hands on?

Mine would have to be Doom 3. I first saw Doom 3 about 2 years before it released at the MacWorld expo when unveiling the GeForce 3. Since Doom was my first ever computer game, I was just psyched out to see how frickin awesome D3 looked. I joined PlanetDoom forums and hung out there for about a year and a half. I was looking up some info on the 6 Series cards for my little Doom 3 update and so happened to stumble upon NVNews!

On D3's release date, I skipped school and got to my local EB Games 15-20 mins early just so I could get my hands on a copy. The manager was late with the copies but once I got home with one, I played MP all day and SP later on that night. What a joyous experience.

How about you guys?

The Elder Scrolls III: Morrowind

Deffinitely... I was allll over that game for years before it came out. I had it preordered 3 months ahead of time and played it the day the collectors edition arrived at my doorstep (which was a day before it hit retail). What an amazing game

Some others that had me really hyped:
Battlefield 1942
Battlefield 2
Doom 3
Half-Life 2
Command and Conquer Renegade
Command and Conquer Tiberian Sun (used to be a huge C&C fan)
