Frankly and maybe I'm the only one that caught the irony of this.. 2 of the titles on that list are not even a year old. One less than 6 months. Top 5 of all time (remember we're talking all time here) and 2 of them are from the last 10 months? If your 60 to 70k players still playing them years after release matters then Counter Strike and Unreal both deserve to be ahead of TF2.
You kidding me Half Life is like the greatest game series ever made, every HL game is a pleasure to play.
Now as a Day one TF2 player I would have to say TF2 is one of the best if not the best multiplayer shooter on the PC. It is a game that is extremely competitive and actually requires team work, not to mention it is a blast to play. While not every choice valve made with TF2 was in my best interest the game still is pretty great, The number of Items added after it went FTP at first was kinda annoying but after I got used to the idea it really wasn't that bad. Some People dislike TF2 because they jump in and get killed over and over, really it is a game that requires you to know the character your playing and how to play it. Personally over the years TF2 has been one hell of a game getting more love then any game I have ever seen. TF2 has been getting a steady amount of updates its entire life, not a lot of games that get that type of treatment.
TF2 is still more of a blast to play then BF3, and I love playing BF3.
Everyone has their personal opinions but TF2 has proven itself to be a great online game regardless and further proves that Valve is the greatest game developer ever.
