Best PC Games


The Top TenXW

1Half-Life 2

Only one thing compares to this. The first Half-life

Greatest story-line ever. I remember watching my dad play this game when mom would leave to go grocery shopping or something because I was too young to watch the violence and I thought it was the coolest thing in the world, and when I finally turned around 13 they let play it and God the feeling of finally being able to be Gordon Freeman IT WAS UNREAL


This game was an instant classic. I hate to be a nerd and video game historian, but this game was and is still revolutionary. I still can't believe a game of this scale exists. It's physics engine causes things to break and slice realistically, it has an amazing plot, the characters are well developed, and there is an enormous variety of guns/weapons you can use.

Of course, this is the best PC game ever made. Oh wait... this is not only the best "PC" game ever made, this is the best game ever made.

2World of Warcraft

What other game has over 9 million players on at the same time. - Deeds48

Not that I don't like it that much its just that you get sucked into it with all the quest and objectives that it takes away your social life - Red26473

A well developed game in all respects. The graphics, movies and all the elements of the game is well rounded.

This and Half Life 2 are the true PC gaming masterpieces

Best game ever why is it so far down its new lots of people will know grand theft auto or call of duty but not minecraft and still it is so amazing that I can't stop playing it get it if you want

The Most Creative Game of All Time. A person made a universal death clock out of it. And you can blow stuff up. Who in the world does not want to blow things up! Do you want more. Then get mods which make it easier or more fun to play like getting more Bombs!

Minecraft is just plain epic! In other games, all you do is sit around and shoot people. After you achieve what you want, what else can you do? In Minecraft, there is no limit! This is so sad:(

Minecraft is one of those best games of all time. - monsterhigh200

4Grand Theft Auto

NUMBER 3! **** that... in GTA.. you can do what you can't do in real life... kill the cops... smashing an old man... fight with the pedestrians... stole car... buying weapons... grow up the gang...

no competition here gta is at top when it comes to pc gaming, people upgraded thier system to play gta4, what more you a game need to be no.1.

Gaming is all about the things you can't do in real life... Grand Theft Auto brings reality and virtual world together... You life the life of the character..

YUCK! I can't stand Grand Theft Auto at all. I could only play Call of Duty: Black Ops or Minecraft or something like that. - monsterhigh200

You could have never miss the great epic battle of the Zerg's, Protos, and Human. The campaign and the story it brings out. The star of all crafts on its genre should I say. This game was best seller and most pirated at its time.
And after more than a decade of wait. SC2 is coming!

I love this game. It is quite addicting and is great competitive fun to play against others online. StarCraft 2: Wings of Liberty looks like it will be awesome as well.

Nothing much to say here. Best game ever. It saddens me not to vote for Half-Life 2, but Starcraft is just too good. - afpabon

Starcraft is the bomb My favorite game can't wait for heroes of the Storm!

6Portal 2

I can't believe that Portal 2 is not in the top ten. No other game emotionally connect players to the story as much as Portal 2.

After playing portal 2, I decided to have portals installed in my own house. The trip to the bathroom has never been faster.

Portal 2 is a first-person action-puzzle-platforming game that tests the player's ability to think and act creatively.

How on planet Earth is this not number 1? Above Half-Life 2. - toptenzen

7Counter Strike: Source

this use to be the best game in world. but with the update it get a litle stupid and slow for those who have old and weak pcs. still having the best particles, details, reality, everything of all games. I can't stay without play for one single day. LOVE IT

The best game, much better than cs 1.6...
Great for online play...
Try this server: - Toxy

Awesome, remarkable, epic, great fps games I ever played. And also best LAN game I think, make a server and invite all your friend to join with you and beat your opponent. last word, amazing game.

Very poor game

Another game I watched my dad play because mom wouldn't let me play cause the violence, and so when I finally got to kick ass on the game my own there was no other feeling. Unfortunately today's society would never have any clue of a first person shooter like this, but fortunately I was lucky to have a pc gamer dad

This is one of the best, and most influential games of our time. It still easily holds its own against any new game that comes out, boasting flashy graphics, and gimmicky new physics features.

Seriously?! 91st?! (sigh) come on guy's doom is the most definitive pc game about, easily the best

If you like cult movies, you should play this cult game.

9Deus Ex

Seriously? Place 96? This is ridiculous! I understand that it is old by today's standards but the environment is really good and every level is unique on its own. It has a lot of ways of playing and the player can choose to either go stealth every time or move like games like CS, shooting everything that moves. The plot and its music surpass CS is my opinion and so does the gameplay. It is far better graphics. EVEN if some people believe that CS is better ( The games are both awesome but Deus Ex is the winner in my heart ) this game should be at least in the top 20 if not in the top 10. I mean Sims 2 place 8? Really guys?

Ben Yahtzee Croshaw (Zero Punctuation) had no big beef with this game, in fact it earns glowing praise from him 10 years later...
Nuff said. -

Counter Strike meets System Shock 10/10

10The Sims 2

I'm going to be honest, there's a good reason why the Sims series is the best-selling PC game of all time. One of those reasons is that it was more than a simulation game, it was a game that has given us, the players the ability to create whatever we want and do whatever we want.

As soon as you open the game, you'll have one of the best video-game experience in your life. Do you know any other game that gives you the ability to create almost anything out of your own imagination and never get bored with it?

I don't know about the rest of you, but it does get tiring to be killing so many enemies in other games, but just playing the Sim 2 is just a breath of fresh air. - goohan

The Sims 2 is the best game ever. No brainer. I'm surprised it's not wearing the crown.
The Sims 2 is a great step up from The Sims (graphic wise, along with create a sim, jobs, ambitions, etc... ) You can't get better than The Sims 2. (Actually, no. I take that back. The Sims 3 is better. )

I'm voting for the Sims, because, let's be honest.. games that simulate real life prove to be the most popular games no matter what.

The Sims Franchise is the GREATEST PC game ever made. Period. And I would say The Sims is the third greatest game ever made. After Tetris and anything Bethesda Software makes (Oblivion, Fallout 3) lol. - rrpaul

The sims 2 is so bad you would kill yourself

?Clash of Clans

Wait, this is PC? I thought this was just Mobile...

?Angry Birds

The Contenders


Not the game of Half-Life that I liked so much but the mods that were created from its engine like; Team Fortress and Day Of Defeat. When the games went to source and you needed an account with Steam to play online, is when it all went downhill for me. They screwed up a good thing for profit. Thanks.

This is no ordinary game. This is amazing. The graphics, ideas etc are the bomb!

The greatest game ever made. Nothing else comes close.

Best game in the world if you know how to play

12Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare

Just can't stop playing this awesome, realistic, powerful game! - aeromaxx777

The most competitive game ever.
This game RULX - Wash12

Just a brilliant game, excessive but very high quality graphics, and the closest to the real war experience.

The Best Game ever.. Huge Fan of all the Call of Duty series

14Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim

My favorite, no game has stayed with me for so long. Have clocked almost 300 hours and not even half of it is completed. Open hand designed and massive world. Awesome soundtrack, flexible player development. Will continue playing it for next few months. Dragons... !

This game is amazing. So many different ways to play! If you don't like your current quest, just walk a few miles in any direction and find someone else!

And the scrolls have foretold of the back wings in the cold...

I just love it

15Diablo 2
16Team Fortress 2

Only improvement I can think of is an in game currency, instead of randomly finding items, why not have flamethrower wielding pyromaniacs carry around their wallet? That aside, 10/10.

Team Fortress 2 is really popular and should be a little higher on the list. Also go check out Mobrosstudio's YouTube poop of it. It's very funny. - TheAstroFlame

Everyone who votes otherwise has either never played the game or is currently suffering from some meteal disorder

Really fun game

18Counter-Strike 1.6
