The recent release of Evolve and The Order 1886 really got me to thinking about the disparity between the perspective of sales-driven publishers and the quality-driven purchases of consumers. The “Hype Train” is nothing new, but the way it is utilized has been creating far more...

GameRevolution's Top 25 PC Games - 2013 Edition

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

20. Diablo II

With the real-money auction house getting patched out of Diablo III, we’ll continue our recognition of Diablo II for getting the formula right the first time. Released way back in 2000, Blizzard’s second hack at the action role-playing genre gave fans a dark fantasy slant on their favorite classes, bringing magic and steel to an explosive juncture where a wild-west online world waited for players to plunder and loot. Here’s hoping they never pull the Battle.net plug on this classic.

19. Unreal Tournament

To this day, Call of Duty’s twitchy fan base needs to give thanks for Unreal Tournament, the originators of fast and furious arena-style shooting. Call of Duty’s layered mechanics in perks and attachments have been built on a base of frenetic shooting not seen since Unreal’s heyday. Sure, you can’t rocket-jump across your favorite map in Call of Duty, but there’s still a small community around Unreal Tournament, so dig in and blast a few hours away.

18. Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim

Big butt mods, big breast mods, big sword mods, and we’re not talking about the one you swing around to fight Skyrim’s beasts. The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim struck the gamer zeitgeist when it launched, but now that the DLC is complete and you can get the entire package for a song, it’s never been a better time to be Dragonborn.

17. Doom 3

Another PC franchise that continues to draw fans in with stark, horrific graphics and tight, responsive shooter controls, Doom continues to exist in whispers and shrieks. While a new Doom game has been in the works for sometime, we continue to wait for it with the reboot from 2004. Mods and graphical face-lifts mean Doom 3 continues to be the most horrifying first-person shooter on PCs, even if Doom 4 fails to ever appear behind us for a dastardly scare.

16. Minecraft

Notch’s boxy world has taken the world by storm and brought gaming to a new generation of tablet users, iPhone toting tweens, and everyone in-between. Even the Xbox 360 version of the game for console peasants has clung dedicatedly to the Xbox Live activity charts. World after world, Minecraft has grown in popularity and reach. Independent developers can look to Mojang for more, but Minecraft takes a place on this chart for the way it renewed interest in the Indie scene.
