I wish we could vote on a list like this - I'd be interested to see what the community at large thinks.
Interesting idea,what if we create our top list of pc games since 2006,rules could go like this: Every person can vote only once and list only ten games,then the one who created the thread count the votes and put how many each game got,and then after lets say two weeks or even a month ("Time Limit" for voting) he write down top 25 games with most votes. But in the progress he writes down every game we voted and its votes.
What do you think ?
... I take the lives of a few to protect the lives of many. I commit acts of war to preserve the greater peace. I take no joy in killing, but make no mistake; I'll do what needs to be done. Because it's my job. It's my duty. My name is Sam Fisher, and I am a Splinter Cell.
For myself, I think I genuinely made the typo years ago, but decided to stick with it.
Edit: That last one wasn't right... it was misspelled as Mindcraft in the litigation.
ARPS unofficial motto - And then we leave. No heroic stands.
As many things as one could say about the RTS community, I doubt "large" would be one of them
25. Far Cry 2.
Unplayable with the same problem Red Faction Guerrilla: enemies spawning behind you.
24. Batman Arkham Asylum.
Nice expansion of the original idea. Too big console influence in some part.
I don't remember playing it. Maybe I don't played it. I dunno.
Graphically very interesting, but a Meh as shooter. Enemies had laser accuracy, so moving was a chore, vehicular combat was unfun (spray and pray).
21. Sins of a Solar Empire.
Nice, but lack a campaing. Just a RTS with a space skin.
Do you mean Minecraft?, is a legend now.
Rather good game, but the boss parts had too much console influence, and not alternative solutions for the most part.
18. Diablo III.
Fun for a while.
I had more fun with L4D1
16. League of Legends.
Really fun, and the lore make it even more fun. I love it to bit, but the graphics have perhaps overdone the cell effect.
15. WoW Cataclysm.
Even wow is now a wow clone.
14. GTA IV.
The GTA serie is the most boring GTA type of game. IV was dullest than dull.
A great game. It destroyed some RPG and multiplayer standards, and made the world better with it. And perhaps the only game, ever, with decent DLC's that are worth downloading.
12. Civ V.
11. Mass Effect 2.
Amazing adventure, made everybody wanting more.
10. Total War: Shogun 2.
Not my tea cup.
9. The Witcher 2.
I liked 1 more. W2 feel influenced by consoles, has strange gameplay ideas that made it unfun.
8. Team Fortress 2.
Hilarious has is limited.
7. Fallout 3.
Great game, but is the small brother to New Vegas that is a all times classic.
6. Portal 2.
Amazing great, amazing story, slightly flawed game.
5. Company of Heroes.
Perhaps one of the best RTS games made ever.
4. StarCraft II.
3. The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim.
It was amazing.
2. Half Life 2: Episode 2.
A rather good voyage.
man Diablo III was terrible.
Some of those choices are actually not bad save for Diablo. Its only claim to fame is its DRM!
But I doubt anyone at IGN picked them for the right reasons and just named games that came to mind.
Virtual Pilot 3Dô NEVER NOT SCAM!
Note they only picked one entry from a franchise.
Diablo3 was the only release for its franchise since 2006.
Borderlands 2 was not released until after this list was made.
