IMHO The Dig from LucasArts is really great, although from what I've heard of it you either love it or hate it. It's certainly worth a try though.

I like sci fi games in the settings/mood of Blade Runner.

I Have No Mouth and I Must Scream. It's brilliant! I think it's available at Harlan Ellison's website, but to people in the US only.

I think the Moment of Silence is a bit sci-fi as well? Haven't played it myself, yet...

Well, one thing you should know about Space Quest if you've never heard of it before is that it's a parody. So the tone is nothing like Blade Runner. Something like The Dig or Beneath a Steel Sky would probably be more up your alley if that's the kind of mood you're looking for.

Feeble files is also a good one, but a hard one too.

The Tex Murphy games are a bit sci-fi.
Also, Legacy Dark Shadows, although it drastically tails off in quality towards the
end.

and The Longest Journey! (How could I forget that one?)

That's about all I can think of at the moment apart from the other ones listed already..

Feelble Files and The Dig. And Gateway 2 is you don't mind a very small graphic window and a textual interface.
Also, I have a fondness for Guilty... but it's not exactly top-notch.

If you want some serious Sci-fi, try Gateway 1-2 and Mission Critical by Legend; Dig, as it was said; Chronomaster, written and designed by Roger Zelazny; and Altered Destiny, not well-known, but still very good game.
And for non-serious Sci-fi you can also try Callahans Crosstime Saloon (though it is somewhat a mix of different genres), also by Legend; Feeble Files, defenetly; Space Quest series, Rex Nebular, Innocent Until Caught 1-2..

Nocturne is a good one if you don't mind the shooting- lots of vampires and demons if that's the kind of sci-fi you like. You can find it cheap at GTZ or ebay. Also Midnight Nowhere was kinda sci-fi in the sense that it was set in the future, but it was not everyone's cup of tea.

Noctropolis is worth a look. More super-hero, than sci-fi though.

The Journeyman Project series is sci-fi, first person games. I personally only played JP2: Buried in Time, but I enjoyed it inmensely. Apparently the others are good as well. You might want to check those out.

Omikron - Nomad Soul.
Itīs got David Bowie in it.

Syberia 1 + 2.
There are robots in it, so itīs sorta sci-fi.

Mad scientists and a crazy meteor hellbent on world domination.

Prisoner of Ice.
horror and timetravel, HP Lovecraft style.

Beneath a Steel Sky is a great choice - especially since it's freeware

Omikron is another good one, though it's a hybrid, and the shooting/fighting engines are poor.

If you're in the mood for an RPG with some adventure elements, I heartily reccomend Anachronox. One of the funniest games I've ever played.

Tex Murphy games are good choices too.

Do those older games work on XP?

I forgot to mention I have Longest Journey, Beneath a Steel Sky and Syberia 1 and 2.
