So a few weeks ago, I cried foul about GamePro’s not-so-great “Best 360 Games” list. Well, I’m here to break it to you: the newest installment, “The 32 Best PC Games of All Time”? Even worse. Yes, believe it.
Once again, I understand that this is all opinion, but just take a gander at the positioning of some of these great games, and where they fall. To give you a little hint: Doom, even though it’s perhaps one of the most influential games of all time, didn’t even land on the list, and World of Warcraft is declared the number one PC game of all time.
Several games in the top 10 alone are XBox or XBox360 ports, finishing above the likes of games like Half-Life 2 and Diablo II. Heck, they’ve got Peggle clocking in at number 5!
A few other gripes I have are the fact that Oblivion was included but not the original PC hit, Morrowind. And for the record: Crysis should never be listed as being better “all time” than the original Half-Life or Grim Fandango. I’m also a little puzzled at the inclusion of Quake III Arena over say, Quake I or Quake II, which were just better games.
So once again, feel free to agree/disagree. I’m not disputing any of these games’ place on the list (except the XBox ports, perhaps), it’s just the placement of them seems all over the place.
What are your favorite PC games of all time?
