The Top Ten

1 Half-Life 2

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

BEST GAME EVER

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

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.

Simply the best

2 Minecraft

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!

This game was made by a single man who has become a millionare off selling copies of the game and he has his own autobiography and there are even conventions devoted entirely to the game. - Red26473

What can you say about Minecraft? It's just for everyone

3 World 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

4 Grand 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.

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

Best Game Ever

5 Starcraft

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

It's a stellar game

6 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.

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.

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

MINECRAP IS ABOVE THIS - Du

7 Counter Strike: Source

Awesome

8 Doom

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.

9 Half-Life

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

10 Call 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

How can you not vote 4 this - fred07

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

The Contenders

11 The 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

You can literally do whatever you want in these games, it can distract you from real life as well!

12 Deus 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

13 Counter-Strike

Best FPS Shooter of all time

Super AMAZING PEOPLE SPENT THOUSANDS OF HOURS ON IT MOST BALANCEDD PC GAME

14 Elder 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

15 Diablo 2
16 Terraria

One of my favourite games of all time. Building on the style of Minecraft, but how about a 2D Perspective, a dozen worlds to explore, good multiplayer and a long and fun game to play. No wonder it was the best selling game on Steam for 6 days after its release, over 200,000 people online at midday of the time of release and currently the 2nd best selling game on Steam. Only one problem: it's hard as balls!

Terraria is the best game ever. So much to do and explore, you will never get bored with this game on your PC!

Like Minecraft very popular for its concept of survival 10/10 - Red26473

Underrated as all heck.

17 Team 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.

Really fun. Try it!

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

The good thing its f2p but there's a 2x chance that you get an unusual if you want to keep it that's fine but 2$ to 100$ that's pretty good

18 League of Legends

WHY IS THIS SO FAR DOWN? This is the best game by far. There's a reason this is the most played PC game.

AMAZING JUST AMAZING I don't know the hate but believe me theirs so many reason why I fell in love with this game

I'm sorry why is this abomination of a game on the list?

This is the most played game EVER. Trust me it is awesome.
