    What are your top 5 favorite PC games and why?

    My list is pretty short because I'm primarily a console gamer, but to make up for it I'll only add games that are exclusive to computers.

    1: Clive Barker's Undying. This was one of my favourite PC games not because of great mechanics but a fantastic story which threw you right into the thick of the horror. It wasn't entirely scary, but it did keep me invested because it gave little time for you to pause, and the world was quite open so you can stray from the beaten path to have a look around this small estate on Ireland.

    2: The Sam & Max Series. Originally on MS-DOS, the games were later remade with updated visuals, sounds and extended stories. This point and click series was possibly the most popular when it first debuted, and even now it remains one of the best point and click detective games around, not to mention the funniest I've ever played next to Broken Sword.

    3: The PC-exclusive Unreal games. This is the shooter that turns boys into men with unrelenting arena action like no other game presents. Sure it's not that original when compared to Quake but it has all the fun of that IP and more. The games were split into two 'types', one being an open world shooter that was more story oriented, and the Unreal Tournament games which were heavily deathmatch based. Many often confuse the Unreal singleplayer games for the Tournament ones, even though they're set in the same universe and share one of two words of the name.

    4: StarCraft 2. Quite easily one of the better RTS games I've played next to LOTR: Battle for Middle Earth 2 and from the same developers of SC, WarCraft. Not only does it have a great community that vies for supremacy and each player is proud of their army of choice, it also has a fantastic story and setting that is still on-going. If I had to give any reason why Blizzard Entertainment were a good developer, I'd only have to point the person who asked to StarCraft.

    5: World of Warcraft. Easily the largest MMO in the US and EU regions of the gaming world, WoW has had huge demand in the past and a steady decline in recent years. Its numbers, while huge, are not a testiment to the game's quality as it's heavily outdated and fails to keep up time and time again. Still a brilliant MMO and the one I'd recommend over most, WoW is a living relic and shows us the best and worst of the MMORPG throughout the ages.

      I've actually never played WoW. Have you tried SWTOR yet?

      Until I get a better laptop and reason to use bandwidth on downloading SWTOR, I won't be playing it just yet ^^

    I won't list particular titles because I really enjoy the CSI games and the Myst series. I'm not any good at any of the games that involve fast paced action. I love to challenge my brain by collecting the information needed to solve the puzzles in the games.

    Maybe I just haven't played enough PC games, but my list only has two on it: World of Warcraft and Anything Elder Scrolls. World of Warcraft is on there because it's the most polished and content-heavy MMO on the market. Plus I have a heavy amount of nostalgia for it that I can't seem to shake. And, between Oblivion and Skyrim, I've probably clocked over 300 hours of gameplay. I came to the Elder Scrolls late in the series, but it's sense of freedom, great storytelling and ridiculously awesome modding community have fast made it one of my favorites. I'm seriously considering going back to get Morrowind, but I'll have to stop playing Skyrim first.

    1. World of Warcraft - It just has a way of pulling me in even though I have never played a game that has frustrated me so much. At the same time though it's probably one of the most interesting PC games I've played.

    2. Hearthstone - It's fun.

    3. Sims 3 - I've always been a fan of the sims games this one is just my favorite.

    4. Counter-Strike - Because every now and then you just feel like playing a good ole FPS and you can't get any better than CS.

    5. Skyrim - When I want to still play a RPG like game without dealing with thousands of people that are rude this seems like the obvious choice.

    5. Heroes of Might and Magic III
    I'm not sure why but I see HMMIII as a modern Chess game, Monumental RPG / Strategy game that I enjoy playing with my friends (LAN) and it never gets old.

    4. The Elder Scrolls V Skyrim (actually, entire elder scroll series)
    Vast open world, limitless possibilities, huge scenario and insane amount of side quests. the best sandbox game ever created.

    3. Diablo II - Hack n Slash RPG by Blizzard North. (Single Player Mode Only)
    Don't know why but I never liked the Diablo II Multiplayer, I did however spent hours, days, months and years playing D2 Single Player. Item and Mob auto generation was really cool.

    2. Half Life 1 - Revolutionary first person shooter game by Valve.
    Stunning physics, really good story and super impressive combat system.

    1. Fallout 1/2 - One of the oldest sandbox games there is. Open world RPG game with Turn Based combat system
    I have this tradition, that I just have to beat Fallout 1 and Fallout 2 every winter. Never gets old...
