Microbe's favorite games

I don't know if anyone else gets this, but sometimes when I watch certain games, I get this feeling in my chest that feels like my heart is flying around in my chest. If I get that feeling when I play through a game, the game ends up here. If you have any suggestions for games I should play through, please let me know!

I should note that many of you will probably say, "ummm... why this game?" Well, my answer to that is that I am easily impressed =P.

The first game I ever really studied myself by GM J. Polgar.
A Greenfeld vs Judit Polgar, 1989 
(A57) Benko Gambit, 40 moves, 0-1

I was very impressed by this strategic and sacrificial gem.
R Ibrahimov vs Mamedyarov, 2006
(E34) Nimzo-Indian, Classical, Noa Variation, 30 moves, 0-1

A positional gem that showcases Karpov's elegance at the board.
Karpov vs Korchnoi, 1981 
(C80) Ruy Lopez, Open, 46 moves, 1-0

A truly stirring game by ex-world champion Vladimir Kramnik.
M Brodsky vs Kramnik, 1991 
(B33) Sicilian, 31 moves, 0-1

Another wave of the wand from the magician of Riga!
Tal vs Hjartarson, 1987 
(C97) Ruy Lopez, Closed, Chigorin, 43 moves, 1-0

A gorgeous sacrifice in the Sveshnikov, by Sveshnikov.
L Zinn vs Sveshnikov, 1974 
(B45) Sicilian, Taimanov, 27 moves, 0-1

An excellent example of Karpov's legendary endgame ability.
Kasparov vs Karpov, 1984
