I came back to this thread, though, to mention Uplink
, an extremely addictive hacking "simulation". I spent way too much time playing this game when I first found it. It's not terribly realistic, but it is sure fun, especially when you play properly (i.e. don't back up your game). The tension can be nervewracking when you are deleting your traces from a very complicated hack and never knowing for sure (until you figure out the tricks) if you have sufficiently covered your tracks. Also it's one of those great games you don't have to do in any specific order - there are tons of ways to have fun with the game even if you ignore the storyline.
