GamerSushi Asks: Top 100 PC Games of All Time?

Deus Ex

Alright, guys. Time to take the gloves off.

It seems that PC Gamer recently released a list of what their contributors feel are the 100 best PC games of all time. I know how riled up everyone here gets over these crazy lists, so I thought I’d bring it over to see everyone froth at the mouth.

All in all, I actually don’t think there’s much wrong with the list, although I’d probably move Counter-Strike into the top 10. Granted, I haven’t played a lot of these PC games, but there are only a handful of games that I feel define what made me a PC gamer back in the day: Myst, Counter-Strike, Quake 3, Doom, and more recently Team Fortress 2 and Portal. In fact, these games are the reason that I still maintain that bond with my PC gaming roots, and why I don’t know if I could ever turn my back to it completely. Even now, I’m infected with the bug of wanting to upgrade my rig in anticipation of some of the awesome titles coming out later this year.

So what do you guys think of this list? What titles define your PC gaming?

  1. As the resident jerk:

    Max Payne should be way higher.

    Quake III should be higher for what it did and continues to do for Quake LIVE.

    Minecraft and Counter-Strike a place a part? I think they are both seperate entities, I consider CS a chatroom where I can shoot people, and Minecraft a level-creator where I may die. Neither of them are really a “game” to me…

    Deus Ex will / always / be #1

    Great list, actually.

  2. Saw this list. Pretty freakin awesome. Oblivion, #3. Oh yes.

    One comment I had on this was #2 though. WoW. Really? I think not. Absolutely. Its user base says otherwise, but no. I also laugh at the first comment:

    “WoW leaves me in awe. I look at it’s landscapes, recently pockmarked by it’s latest Cataclysm, and smile. They spread and undulate for miles, always changing, always gorgeous. I look at it’s mechanics, newly revamped, and gasp at their depth…”

    Seriously?? I mean…Seriously? On WoW???? If WoW is enough to leave you in awe then Oblivion should have your jaw on the floor and Crysis should have made you mess you pants and pass out. WoW is far graphically inferior. Comparing WoW to Oblivion in terms of graphics is like comparing Bugs Bunny to 3D movies today. One of the biggest turnoffs of WoW is its completely cartoon feel. Left you in AWE?!?! Come ON seriously? I dont know why but this comment seems to aggravate me greatly. Probably because the game runs on such hype, but WoW is in no way famous because of its stunning visuals. For pete sake the free to play Guild Wars is better looking than WoW. Just such a strange and ridiculous comment IMO.

    I dont know why that one got to me so much, but I felt that was such a bizarre thing to say given all the games that are out there, including the fact its graphics are too overly cartoony.

    The entire list was pretty cool to look through. I didnt ever play 90% of the games though.
