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

10. Total War: Rome II

Total War continues to impress us after all these years. Perhaps no other series caters to the diehard PC fan like Total War, and Rome II is emblematic of that dedication. One of the most hardware-intense games on the market, Rome II allows you to capture the bloody action from the perspective of a lowly foot soldier or the airborne commander surveying the columns of soldiers and barbarians as they crash into each other with shield and blade. Enter into a multiplayer skirmish or campaign and watch the hours fly by.

9. Counter-Strike: Source

Counter-Strike’s global appeal and diehard community make any entry in the franchise a worthy new notch in your Steam library, but Counter-Strike: Source has aged like a fine wine. Its server-side mods have grown more wild and free. Its best players have possibly moved on allowing newcomers to get addicted and get to knifing. Finding a stable CS_Office community or a wild meat grind deathmatch is just as easy now as it was a launch, thanks to the long-haul servers hosted by fans.

8. Battlefield 3

It may be too early for Battlefield 4, but with DICE’s Premium Subscription offering dozens of maps, plenty of varied game modes, and a wide reaching community in Battlefield 3, it’s easy to give the franchise a spot on our list. With the overall package coming down in price and PC hardware continuing to march into the blind future of technology, Battlefield 3 is more playable, more entertaining, and more accessible than ever before.

7. System Shock 2

This action role-playing survival horror game where players have to destroy an AI supercomputer named SHODAN still scares us. Whether you’re modifying your character for a completely different play style or experiencing the game for the first time, System Shock 2’s complex gameplay systems and narrative are only bettered through its sound design and now decidedly old-school graphics. With the title popping up on numerous download services, nows as good a time as any to let SHODAN in your head.

6. StarCraft 2

A worldwide phenomenon, a professional sport that regularly fills stadiums, and one of the hardest games to truly master all rolled into one package. StarCraft 2’s worldwide reach and balanced approach to the real-timed strategy genre make it one of the biggest games in the world, played by countless gamers every day.
