[PC Gamer] 100 Best PC games of all time. - Page 12

post #111 of 280
In all seriousness though, it looks like they listed a bunch of games and hit randomize.

Worst list I have ever seen.

Starcraft at #86? For shame, for shame.

Where is:
Civ2 (BEST GAME EVER)
Wing Commander 2
Mech Warrior 2
Heroes of Might and Magic 2
Command HQ
Dark Forces
Freedom Fighters

And Tie Fighter should be like #3, right behind Civ2 and Rome: Total War (which they got right).

More like best games from the past 5 years.
I could let the rest pass but Tie Fighter should definitely have a single digit rank. Anyone that disagrees with that needs to be given a console and have their PC taken away.

This list has more fail in it than the rap industry. Do not want.

Pathetic list. How old are the "judges" 12?

Apart from solitare and blackjack, the whole PC gaming started on the backs of games like SimCity, KingsQuest, Doom, Wolfenstein and Quake - these (and numerous others) are easily the major reasons why PC gaming is what it is today. And they barely (if at all) rate in the list lol.

And if the list is based on most popular, you have Starcraft, WoW, CS and the CoD series - and while WoW ranks 2nd behind DeusEX (fail), the others don't even break the top 10.

If these "judges" are the ppl behind the magazine, it is of little wonder why the worst games always receive HUGE beatup and praise and turn out to be craptastic.

If you are going to make a "top PC games of all time" list, you'd better include the games that are actually responsible for PC gaming at the top - or the list is worthless IMHO.

I disagree. They are rating the best games of all time, not the most influential or important. Just because a game like Doom or Quake started the FPS genre up, doesn't make it a better game.

one of the battlefield games should have been ATLEAST in the 20's.

N/M D2 was in the top 10, reading the list backwards
RE 2 was the best C&C game of all time.

By your logic, you might as well leave all the forerunners out, because all have been improved in some way or bettered in some way by current technology.

If they did use your logic, then they should have simply left out "of all time" from the title and been done with it.

If they're going to rate the games based on "all time", then the rating should be heavily weighted on the time it was released.

Otherwise in 10 years time, their "best of all time" will be largely games of that era, and again, it shouldn't include "all time" in the title.
