In a world dominated by violent media, Americans are no more eager to go to war than they were in the 1980s or the 1960s or the 1940s. Hasn't it always been someone else's problem? The overwhelming majority would rather go on thinking it had nothing to do with them and there...

GameRevolution's Top 25 PC Games - 2013 Edition

Posted on Thursday, December 26 @ 12:00:00 Eastern by GR_Staff


The PC has made great strides in the past year, but we don't want to ignore its entire history either. This Top 25 PC Games list is a delicate balancing act between the latest and greatest and a slew of dominating classics. Could you choose just 25 PC games to play for the rest of your life out of the hundreds of thousands of titles. With indie developers, digital libraries, sales, bundles, and more, the PC deserves the recognition it's gotten in 2013.

Here are GameRevolution's Top 25 PC games for 2013:



25. Peggle Deluxe


First released in 2007, Peggle has steadily grown into the perfect pallet cleanser. PopCap’s silver ball ricochets around the board and racks up points with every cleared red, blue, and green peg.

Special powers let you score even more points, but finishing a level in Extreme Fever and hearing the Ode to Joy beat drop satisfies like nothing else. It’s the perfect in-between for hardcore shooters and strategies. Break up your next Battlefield and Total War campaigns with a little Peggle to keep things light.



24. Thief II: The Metal Age

The team that brought us System Shock also delivered Thief and Thief II: The Metal Age. Thief II landed in 2000, one of the best years for PC gaming, and followed Garrett as he discovers a massive conspiracy in the age of Mechanists. With new technology complicating Garrett’s good-old-fashioned thieving abilities, Thief II expanded the story, world, and gameplay without sacrificing the tense shadows that players cling to in-game. Here’s hoping the latest entry can only further our fondness for the series in 2014.

23. Kerbal Space Program

A fully realized ship-building toy box, realistic physics, endearing Kerbals you might kill in a fiery near-space explosion, a totally unique and one-of-a-kind indie game. Kerbal Space Program is all of these things and more. You might never reach the Mun. You might never land a rover on a martian surface, but every ship is a story and sharing that story with fellow gamers doubles the fun. Try the game and see if you can do better, see if you can land your Kerbals on the moon, or just screw around and build something that was never meant to launch. Just stick around for the spectacular crash.

22. EVE Online

If you’re looking for a diehard online community in a deep galaxy simulation that brings economy, politics, and massive laser battles to the mix, look no further than EVE Online. CCP’s massively multiplayer online role-playing game earns a spot on our list for the way it mimics and mocks our own society. If you want big gambles to result in thousands of dollars lost to the virtual vacuum of space or to interact with players who have as much control over the game’s world and workings as even the developers, your ship should be parked somewhere in the vast space in EVE Online.

21. Minesweeper

Never mind the high-fidelity action your SLI graphics cards inject directly into your eyeballs. Never mind the liquid-cooled architecture of your hand-built beast. Never mind online multiplayer, or anything resembling a detailed menu. The only options you need are Easy, Medium, and Fuck-This-Game. When it comes to the edge of white-knuckled excitement that only a high-stakes drug deal can give you, you only need Minesweeper, the original free-to-play.
