Finally Broke My Crowdfunding Rule
By oblivion437
Posted on 01/12/15
I've had a long-standing rule to avoid getting involved in any sort of crowdfunded activities.  I didn't donate to Shadowrun or Wasteland, but I did buy and enjoy both of them (I'm plugging both of those games right now, just so you know they're good).  I haven't...

GameRevolution's Top 25 PC Games - 2013 Edition

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

15. Age of Empires II: The Age of Kings

Age of Empires II: The Age of Kings rejoins our list of the 25 best PC games thanks to its long-standing influence on the strategy genre. At the turn of the millennia, Age of Empires II gave players a long, interactive look back at a past filled with countless bloody campaigns. By the end, you should have all you need to know about the art of war.

14. The Sims 3

Like The Sims 2, EA’s latest Sims game has extended its reach with countless expansion packs and new gameplay to ultimately become the ultimate living dollhouse. Barbies and action figures have nothing on the kind of melodramatic, cartoon-y, hair-brained, and totally-endearing dramas that can play out in Sims 3. Non-threatening and fun for everyone, The Sims 3 is the sleepy computer gaming cousin to Battlefield 3 and StarCraft 2. It’s the game you have installed for those quiet Sundays where you’ve done all your chores and so has your Sim.

13. Portal 2

Ignoring the game’s ties to the Half-Life series for a second, the most interesting thing about Portal 2 was pretty much the entire experience. From the teasing, tongue-in-cheek and laugh-out-loud narrative, to the puzzle action, the reactive soundtrack, to the mind-bending cooperative puzzles, to the sensation of flying through the air in a mad abuse of gravity… All of it. There’s really nothing else like Portal 2, and maybe there never will be.

12. Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic

KOTOR wasn’t just one of the best Star Wars games ever made, it’s also one of the best action-RPG hybrids ever made, representing BioWare’s first experiments with what would mechanically evolve into Mass Effect. With a narrative scribed by Drew Karpyshyn, a killer soundtrack, and tons of lovable characters and events, Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic holds tight to GameRevolution’s list of best PC games because it continues to ring loudly in our heads as a meaningful extension of the brand and a meaningful experience for gamers from all walks of life.

11. SimCity 4

Despite EA’s horrifying, bungled launch of what could have been an engrossing new entry in the franchise, we can’t throw out SimCity just for its modern-day mistakes. With computer hardware growing in strength and shrinking in cost, SimCity 4 runs better than ever and with the right mods and gameplay adjustments, might even be the modern city builder you hoped for in 2013. The fine control you want over roads and construction still waits in that old SimCity 4 save you’ve kept from hard disc to flash drive to solid-state.
