    I don't care either way. If the list was for console as well then some Halo games would definitely be in there, as well as some other 360/PS3 exclusives.

    All the platform dickwaving wars are just a colossal waste of time, serving no purpose other than promoting the products of companies who do not give a single shit about you, your wants or your opinions. PC escapes that slightly due to not being a singly-owned platform, but ultimately the same stuff is at the root of it all.

    ...then why'd you bring it up?

    The whole PC MASTER RACE thing was quite subdued in this conversation. Hell, nobody even yelled at me for my CoDMW suggestion, and that's usually the banner-waver for Everything That's Wrong With Our Dumbed Down Console Monkey Culture (yet still a seminal piece of modern gaming.)

    As in wondering what PC-only lists would look like? Genuinely just out of interest as to what peoples favourite "core" games might be, ie. those most likely consigned to strategy, sim, turn-based, adventure etc genres. And because I suspet finding 10 great, non-multiplatform games released since 2006 could be tricky for some people.

    True that this thread has been fairly muted with regards to the old Master Race, but there are others round here that get infected with it quite a bit and certain users who almost embody it.

    Like many of you, I suspect my list would otherwise be populated by many of my to-play backlog, but here we go....

    Minecraft
    M&B: Warband
    Just Cause 2
    World of Goo
    Binding of Isaac
    Portal 2
    AssCreed 2
    Gothic 3 (I'm sure nobody else put this simply because you all forgot it came out as recently as 2006, ushering in the modern era of gaming. Right??)
    Driver: SF
    Plants vs. Zombies

    Just misses:

    FTL
    Defense Grid: The Awakening
    GRID
    Anno 1404
    Scratches

    Because CoDMW was actually a breath of fresh air in the military shooter genre at the time (ie not yet another WW2 shooter trying to capture the brilliance of Allied Assault) by doing something a bit different. If you'd chosen MW2 on the other hand (ie same game, shorter single player, no invention) you'd probably have at least got some questioning replies.

    I picked MW2(same game, just turned up to 11) and I didn't get any questioning replies.

    Of course the fact that most people have me on ignore(either using forum software or simply their brains) might have played a part in that

    I thought Battlefield 2 did that years ago before it's release. But I guess it just made the MMM fashionable again

    Well I had a blast with MW2, both in singleplayer and multiplayer. It was my first CoD since the first though so there was quite a bit of novelty to it. And even though I managed to have some fun in multi it was often laggy as hell and annoying with the imbalanced akimbo weapons and ridiculously easy knife kills.

    Because I previously listed less than ten, I will now add two that I forgot:

    Just Cause 2
    ARMA 2
    JC2 has to be on the list because it's the best imaginary vacation I've ever spent.

    EDIT: I have now added these to my earlier post.

    It's in the mail, along with some stickers and the stereotype-dictated 5XL t-shirt.

    It was an honourable mention, I might have been more inclined to question you if you'd said it was top 10!

    @ Voon

    True, I guess the face Battlefield is even more focused on multiplayer than Modern Warfare meant it passed me by.

    It was an honourable mention because they're asking $60 for a five hours long game, which is insane.

    (I pretend MP doesn't exist in the entire CoD series, otherwise I get these attacks)

    I guess this is in order... At least that's how I feel about the top 3, after that it starts getting kind of murky.

    Portal - I hate the phenomenon that this game became and the following that it generated. I hate this simply because it clouds the awesome brilliance that is the game itself. But just the extent of this following, with all the shitty "still alive" recitations on youtube and cake memes on reddit and the fact that it's still relevant is just further proof for me of just how brilliant Portal actually is. It is the best game since '06, there is no doubt in my mind about that, but it is also probably my favorite PC game of this time frame as well and it is definitely the game I played through the most times (not counting stuff that is made to be replayed over and over, like Isaac and Civ V).

    Minecraft - This game is like the antithesis to Portal when design is concerned, and playing it for the 1st time was like a "burning bush" type revelation (especially for a kid that grew up playing with Lego, before Lego became overpriced junk that purposefully limits what you can do with it). In some ways I see Portal as the pure distilled pinnacle of the closed off, linear game design and Minecraft as the first real step towards a truly open next generation game where the player's imagination is the only limitation. And as much as it's fun to play around in this sandbox, survive and build, it is also a bit humbling to see what others are capable to do with it.

    Dark Souls - So if Minecraft was like finding religion this game is definitely like joining a cult. I played it on the PS3 first and the excitement surrounding this game around it's first few months was more than palpable. And the game that generated that excitement was more than deserving because it provided me with an experience that was incomparable to anything else that I've played before. It is an action RPG with an amazing combat system that emphasized exploration above all, be it with it's cryptic story and lore or tricky and oftentimes ingenious world design. Even encountering a new enemy felt like an exploration because to dispatch most of them efficiently you need to learn to recognize and counter their set of moves. With this the game rewards deliberate and observant players, and punishes the "act before you think" behavior that most other games have conditioned us for all these years. On top of that there is the crushing atmosphere and the unbelievable boss fights, that together with the harsh but deliberately designed difficulty make it one of the most cathartic and exhilarating games ever made.

    Here's the rest of my picks:

    The Witcher 2
    GTA 4
    Team Fortress 2
    Civilization V
    Braid
    Batman Arkham Asylum
    Dragon Age: Origins
    steam

    Please edit your previous post, it makes it easier to count.

    It would look like a different bunch of lists. It would also look different if you removed the time period, or if you included drinking games.

    And this is a petty tribalistic argument, put forth through sheer belligerency. Seriously, this would be like going to the Freshwater Aquarium Club and complaining about the lack of salt water fish. Since you have the ability to start a thread of your own and chose not to, it sounds like you came looking for a fight or to derail a thread. Which is shitty.

    In order of the amount of time I spent playing:

    Mount & Blade: Warband
    Football Manager 2010
    ArmA 2
    Crusader Kings 2
    Red Orchestra Ostfront 41-45
    The Witcher
    Men of War
    Anno 1404
    Sword of the Stars
    STALKER: SoC
    Blackwell Deception

    There are a few games like RACE 07, Wargame:EE and Frozen Synapse that would've been there if I get myself into them properly but other games provide too much of distraction. If the list is a tad longer I would put Hotline Miami, VVVVVV, Medieval 2:TW, EU3 and Company of Heroes in there.

    EDIT: Oh I put an extra game in there. Just go along with it.
