BOY OH BOY
>anywhere even close to that list
>Mirror's Edge a greater PC game than World of Warcraft
>Terraria not listed
It better be listed somewhere
That D3 description is not fucking ok
that is literally describing Diablo 2. NOT 3.
>Dayz is higher then papers please
Oh, deus ex is #4! It used to be their #1 so surely the next few games will be absolute masterpieces!
o-oh, well at least the #1 will be great!
>see that direction
>you can walk in it
I fucking hate it when people claim Deus Ex is a masterpiece; yeah it has a good story but the fucking game aged like milk; YOU WANT STEALTH DOWNLOAD THE FUCKING DARK MOD WHICH IS THIEF WITH THE DOOM 3 ENGINE
Well PC gamer readers are about 13 years old so makes sense
ONLY THE DEAD CAN KNOW PEACE FROM THIS SUFFERING
NIGGERS ARE PULLING MY FUCKING LEG HOW
Because no matter how many people while about hats and the community TF2 is still a good game
>The game that killed a hopeful series
/v/ is the only place on the internet hipster enough to hate Skyrim. It's loved literally everywhere else but here.
>they just talked about how Deus Ex has decisions through action rather than words
>#1 is the fucking antithesis
>I am ok with it being top 10
Kill yourself you subhuman piece of shit. The thought of your breath tainting the air the rest of us human beings have to breathe makes me fucking sick. You fucking disgust me you worthless fuck.
it only gets better for me
That was the shittiest list I have ever seen and I've seen some shit.
I CANNOT EXPRESS THROUGH WORDS THE AMOUNT OF DISAPPOINTMENT I FEEL IN THE HUMAN RACE
>X-COM ranking: 83
>XCOM:EU ranking: 6
This list is 500% garbage.
>this is bioware character design at it's best
Just for fun, here's the cover art
Like any of those people would have played Mount and Blade.
Half the games were multiplats and console ports, and they only added games like Quake or Doom because they internet law dictates it.
"Putting the action literally on rails was at once a great metatextual pun, stupid good fun, and the most original thing to happen to FPS combat in years. And Infinite is full of innovations like that.
I don't see how ANYONE can even enjoy any Elder Scrolls game. Trust me, I have fucking tried time and time again but I can't find any enjoyment in them. The world is so generic and bland, not to mention you CAN go over that mountain but its just as static as all the other open world games out there.
>Main Quest so boring no one does it
>Main Feature(killing dragons) is boring as fuck
>Main Gimmick(Shouts) absolutely useless
>Easily broken game mechanics
It's "the game that the cool kids play" everywhere else. That's why they "love" it so much.
you're missing the point. those games aren't fun because they are deep or compelling to play. you just get stuck in the grind and forget about the fact that you're just stat padding or flaunting your epeen around other gaymers.
you're a quintessential shallow gamer.
>above Both New Vegas and Fallout 1
dont they do a greatest pc ever list like every other month
forgetting the superfluous pretentiousness of that statement for a moment, do people seriously not remember bioshock infinite was supposed to be a semi/full open world game and the skyrail system was envisioned as the method to get around Columbia?
>Curse of Monkey Island
Whoever made this list should be shot.
>Secret of Mi
WHO THE FUCK MADE THIS LIST?
GODDAMNIT. WHO PUT THESE SO LOW? WHERE'S GRIM FANDAN-
YOU FUCKFACED CUNT NUGGETS. WELL, AT LEAST TOP 25. THE TOP GAME MUST BE SOME GLORIOUS SHIT LIKE-
WHERE IS FULL THROTTLE!? GODDAMNIT. WHAT HAPPENED TO THIS LIST.
i guess that's why i didn't see spore either
>The Last of Us
>influential at all
we're talking about the 100 games that have defined genres, been imitated but never duplicated, defined entire generations, sold systems, sparked fan-bases that have survived the test of time.
Yeah nah. It's not even an online game so flaunting one's epeen is invalid, since anyone can modify their own game.
And since when are other games not stat padding? You're just some elitist fuck who views themselves as above other people who enjoy fun.
The very point is that Skyrim, being an open world game that boasts hundreds of hours of potential playtime doesn't really have that you stupid fuck
I literally laughed so hard at this. I thought Mass Effect 3 at #8 was bad enough. Oh god it's like this is a joke.
And I like Skyrim, but jesus christ it shouldn't even be on any top 100 list, let allone ahead of the previous TES games
I don't get what you guys are so upset about. We finally have an article from PCGamer which explicitly says they're casual plebs and their opinions aren't worth a single shit turd.
>last position: 1
fuck, they said skyrim was the greatest game of all time last year...
>there are people on this Earth that think that Fallout 3 was better than New Vegas
>these people got paid for their opinions
THINGS THAT MADE ME MAD IN THIS LIST:
>Any Total War game after the first Rome. (67/81)
>F-I-F-A 13 (63)
>BATTLEFIELD 4 (50)
>GUILD WARS 2 (39)
>SKYRIM IS THE SECOND BEST PC GAME E-V-E-R
>MASS EFFECT IS THE BEST PC GAME E-V-E-R.
AND I DID A QUICK READ ON EVERYTHING, THERE'S MORE SHIT IN THERE
Thank fucking Christ I gave up on pc gamer when they gave peggle a game of the year award.
I had every issue from 1997 to 2007 until that audacious bullshit happened.
But this... this is some sort of next level fall from grace.
>Return to Castle Wolfenstein
>Red Orchestra: Ostfront
>Shogun: Total War
I'm assuming these are going in top to bottom order. It pains me greatly that Shogun doesn't run properly on Windows 7. Also RO2/RS is #6, I do honestly enjoy it but it's definitely not as good as the original commercial release
>No Mountain Blade
Those faggots wouldn't know a great game if it bit them in the ass
+ It holds up really well, AI and weapon design is still really solid, music is still good, level design is still good, combat is still fun, lots of fun secrets, enemy design is good
- Last boss fight was complete shit and most of the last part of the game felt clipped for size constraints
4. Ultima 7
+ Great writing, great RPG mechanics, great characters, good music, very large and detailed experience
- Every time I play it I'm reminded Ultima IX exists still and someone somewhere thinks it's a good game.
+Tons of content, fun to play alone or with friends, good music, visually pleasing at times
- Building is awkward at times, no way to really combat invasions efficiently, all servers are full of high-tier deviantart autists who want to build their rainbow mansion and ERP in it
2. STALKER CS
+ Faction system makes A-life more present, easily the best atmosphere and anomalies in the series, best maps, comfy as fuck clear sky base and swamps
- Unstable as fuck, faction system is also annoying, story is pure ass
1. Serious Sam 3
+ Literally no faults; the perfect video game.
This has to be a joke. Like I know the state the industry is in but...
I'm dreaming right? I'm not even exaggerating, seriously. This really feels like a dream.
The gameplay is almost exactly the same, both have memorable characters and settings, both have A+++ DLC. Atmosphere is 1000x better in FO3 though. How is it not better overall?
Holy shit when will pcgamer get off biowares dick. there must be something going on because DA2 certainly does not deserve a 94 out of 100.
Also HoMM3 is completley missing from this list despite being one of the best Turn Based strategy games released.
I played a lot of it and had fun, all my points hold up.
I was expecting to get more bitching for Clear Sky because everyone hates it.
What FO3 has in atmosphere and exploration, NV has even more of in better gameplay (there were actually a lot of changes in NV from FO3), significantly better story (as well as player influence within said story), significantly better factions, and not completely shitty morality system.
C&C (too many good games to pick one)
Unreal tournament 99
WC3 is the only game that I let get past on it's mods, because of how incredible it's engine and network setup were, allowing for such a great community.
Great story and cinematic too.
Because NV has better gameplay that while doesn't seem too different is still better due to minor changes, better characters, better story, better DLC, better writing and overall better everything but setting and atmosphere.
wow being a pcfag is suffering, how do you fatasses not kill yourselves already? at least nintenbros get smash and sonybros get bloodborne, what do you guys get? nude mods and 10 year old games
5. Stalker: CoP
4. Half Life 2
3. The Witcher
2. Half Life
you know, i don't get Mass Effect. I really don't. It's just a third person shooter with a stupidly slow walking speed outside of combat. the game-play is ok, the story universe, everything is OK but so many people have such a massive boner for it. I just don't get why it's so popular when it just comes off as utterly generic and shallow. ME2 was the best one, but it still isn't amazing.
>Sim City nowhere to be seen
>The Sims the only simulation game and it's near the bottom
I just finished it recently. I would say it's great, but not the best of all time. Man some dicksucker did this piece.
Remember, they need to create interesting content to sell 'zines fellas.
WHAT THE FUCK
NOT EVEN THE FIRST ONE
>Company of heroes
>Team Fortress 2
>Medieval 2 total war
>Mount and Blade Warband
>Wargame Airland Battle(got a bad taste of rd, haven't tried it since but i heard its improved)
I-I'm a patrician r-right?
What is Diablo 3?
because it sure as hell ain't an RPG, there are no character choices, no leveling options, just a dull grind with no decisions, choices or thinking required.
When sombody says Deus Ex has aged like milk just say hear, like milk that has been turned into cheese and matured as time went on...
Hey guys remember all those shit charts of the best games of all time according to /v/?
I TAKE BACK EVERYTHING I SAID AGAINST THEM
HOLY SHIT THEY'RE GOOD RECOMENDATIONS
THIS LITERALLY GAVE ME BRAIN DAMAGE FOR 5 MINUTES. I WAS STARING AT IT WITH MY MOUTH OPEN WITH SUFFERING COMING OUT OF MY MOUTH.
WHAT THE FUCK.
THE FIRST ONE ISN'T EVEN IN THE TOP 100.
ME2 IS LITERALLY CONFIRMED BABBY'S FIRST ME GAME THAT HOPPED ON THE BANDWAGON.
THESE FAGGOTS DIDN'T EVEN BOTHER PLAYING THE FIRST ONE.
>We are le epic gamerz
>We played the doose ex and half lifers!
>Also mods! amirite?! haha
>mods r great
>MASS EFFECT 2
>SUCK A BAG OF DICKS
>WE MADE THIS LIST JUST SO PEOPLE WOULD TALK ABOUT OUR SHITTY PUBLICATION
Ultima VII is my #1 too. It's not even debatable.

Baldur's Gate 2
C&C: Tiberian Sun

>no san andreas
>no sim city
>no serious sam
>no age of empires
>no counter strike 1.5
>no flight simulator
>no tomb raider
>no wolfenstein 3d
>no black and white
WHAT THE FUCK IS WRONG WITH THESE PEOPLE!?
>Hiring journalists that have no idea about videogames
This is the actual situation of the industry and journalismts on it,
Without going into detail of how much i disagree with this list.
They took a very selective amount of games that where older then 5-10 years, they could have just limited the list to the 10 years but then they put in games like Doom and DeusEx.
>RTS genre pretty much never existed according to this list.
Not just any specific stalker, just "Stalker"
>Guild Wars 2
>No Fallout 2 or New Vegas on the list (aka the best Fallout games)
>Day Z that high on the list
>12th best PC (and practically game) of all time
>practically a flash game
>Mass Effect 3
>Better than CS:GO
WHAT THE FUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUU
>System Shock 2
Mount and Blade: Warband
Metal Gear Rising: Revengence
Far cry 2
Master of Orion 2
Flat Out 2
Kerbal Space Program
Max Payne 1
Max Payne 2
Orcs Must Die
Every Total War
Civ V and III, IV aged amazingly bad but It's still ok
Star Wars Knights of the old republic 1 and 2
Tropico 3 and 4 (Tropico 5 sucks)
Sid Meir's Railroads!
Games I'd love if I could git gud at them
All those Paradox Grand Strategy games
I don't see what the big deal is. It was a good game. Everyone is just bandwagoning the hate because of ME3. Name another game that deserves that spot? I bet you can't
>Fallout 3 higher than Fallout 2
>Fallout 3 higher than Fallout New Vegas
>Fallout 3 higher than Fallout 1
Shit list, but I can see why it was so recent-game heavy. If all the "greatest games" were 10-20 year old games, then it would seem like PC doesn't have any good games to the kiddie audience that reads shit shit.
WHAT THE FUCK
WHERE IS DWARF FORTRESS
THERE IS NO DWARF FORTRESS ON THIS LIST
THE FUCKING GAME THAT INSPIRED SO MANY OTHER GAMES ON THIS LIST IS NOT THIS FUCKING LIST
THE RAGE HAS LITERALLY MADE ME POP ONE OF MY HEMORRHOIDS AND NOW I HAVE TO GO TO THE DOCTOR NOW
THANKS PC GAMER
Jesus nuclear fuck I used to have respect for PC Gamer magazine. It's been a hell of a decade.
>the UFO Defense review says it's better than the remake
>EU2012 is #8
I fucking love EU2012 to death but putting it that high is a fucking abomination.
>Myth: The Fallen Lords
>Theatre of War 2
>mediocre tps and bad RPG with half of the characters being shit and half being decent...half of the time
>BEST PC GAME OF ALL TIME
I swear to god this was made by a console babby trying to troll actual PC gamers or EA is at it again.
>shitty FotM memegames are this close to the top
>Guild Wars 2 is 39
>Guild Wars 1 isn't on the list.
>Hotline Miami that low on the list
Oh boy here we go
>MASS EFFECT 2
>BETTER THAN HALF-LIFE 2
>BETTER THAN DOOM
>BETTER THAN DEUS EX
>BETTER THAN MONKEY ISLAND
>SKYRIM GETS NUMBER 2 JUST BECAUSE OF MODS
>Total War Shogun 2: Fall of the Samurai
>All Dawn of War games I`ve played (1 and 2)
>Half Life 2
No real order, I like them almost the same
I`d also put SWKOTOR II and Star Wars Empire at War on the list.
I LAUGHED SO HARD THAT I ACCIDENTALLY NUTTED MYSELF WHILE CHANGING POSITION IN MY CHAIR
NOW IM LAUGHING AND CRYING AT THE SAME TIME TRYIG TO TUPE THIS
FUCK MY BALLS HURT
FUCK TOU PC GAMER
That fucking guy. There's an image that's a compilation of these things, and in each one Evan Lahti has some kind of incredibly shit opinion. I don't have it on this computer though.
tl;dr PC Gamer is full of shit taste
I'm starting to think they create these shitty lists just to arouse people, who then complain about them, so PC Gamer gets more publicity. That would explain why they included "Come shout at us on Twitter!"
HOW WAS ME2 OF ALL THINGS CHOSEN AS NUMBER FUCKING 1
ON A FUCKING PLATFORM THAT HAS EXISTED FOR DECADES
SOME ALRIGHT, UNNOTEWORTHY SECOND GAME OF A TRILOGY IS FUCKING CHOSEN AS #1
If you want to calm your spergasm a bit, here PC Gamers Top 100 from way back in 2001.
>worth it for the Wololo alone
Oh man, that's what I'm talking about. There's some quality titles.
>those fucking comments on Bioshock Infinite
how could they get it so wrong?
In no particular order:
>Medieval II: Total War
>Warhammer 40k: Dawn of War
>Red Orchestra 2
FOR FUCK'S SAKE HOW WAS MASS EFFECT 2 NUMBER 1 OVER THERE AND NOT NUMBER 1 OVER HERE
ARE THESE PEOPLE MENTALLY FUCKING DEFICIENT AND I SWEAR IF THE NUMBER ONE IS BIOSHOCK I WILL PERSONALLY FUCKING SHIT ON YO-
It's a pretty good game but not #1 for damn sure.
