Top PC Games of All Time
Half Life 2 is bound to be on this somewhere, right? Well, it’s not just about City 17 and being mute. The PC has always been on the cutting edge of gaming, being the place where new ideas tend to arrive first. It is the de-facto platform for MMOs, indies, F2P and MOBAs, all of which are huge deals right now.
Traditionally the PC has also been the place where genres like strategy and sims thrive, mainly due to the tried and trusted mouse & keyboard controls. Games like the Total War series have traditionally taken full advantage of the PC’s unique inputs, and processing power, to provide rich strategy experiences with the spectacle of vast armies clashing on the battlefields of history. The Sims series, one of the best selling simulation games of all time, continues to look and play best on PC.

Return of the king.
FIFA delivers an exhilarating game of football.
Card Hunter is excellent.
Addiction returns for another year...
An exceptionally gorgeous and superbly-balanced multiplayer game marred only by a hollow single-player campaign.
One of the best games of 2012 is back, and it might be the best game of 2013.
