Here's my list:

1. TOAW III. Has its problems but overall I've played this more than anything.
2. SSG's Decisive Battles series. All are great games, love the Ardennes Offensive!
3. Steel Panthers: World At War. Closest thing to ASL I've seen.
4. Gary Grigsby's World at War: A World Divided. All Grigsby games are awesome.
5. Airborne Assault series. This will rate higher as I get more plays in, excellent command system.

8. Panzer Campaign Series (HPS/JTS)

9. HPS Midway (HPS)

10. WC:NAW (NWS)

I do not own War in the East (2by3/Matrix) yet but have a feeling it will enter the top 10 once I do...

Honorable mention...or just have not played them enough yet:  Combat Mission I/II series, Close Combat Last Stand at Arnhem, Silent Hunter III/IV, John Tillers Campaign Series, Take Command: 2nd Manassas

Panzer Campaigns

Campaign Series (East Front, West Front, Rising Sun)

Combat Mission Battle for Normandy

Steel Panthers WW2

1. Combat Mission: Barbarossa to Berlin (#1 hands down)

2. Steel Panthers WWII

3. Close Combat Series

4. HPS' Panzer Campaign & Squad Battle series.

5. Combat Mission x2 (Battle for Normandy) and the eventual release of the Eastern Front expansion, which should pretty much cement its position as the best PC tactical wargame ever made IMHO.
