RIP Ralph Baer (1922-2014)
By KevinS
Posted on 12/07/14
RIP Ralph Baer (1922-2014) I really, really hate writing obits. I really do. But I take it as a personal honor to be able to say good things about the men and women I respect, whether in this industry or just in my life, and Ralph Baer is the reason all of this exists in the first...

GameRevolution's Top 25 PC Games - 2013 Edition

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

5. Deus Ex

Sorry, now you’ve gotta go install this classic gem one more time. Deus Ex laid the ground work for many different avenues in modern gaming, but that the experience’s haunting vision of the future still holds up today speaks to its longevity. That we’re actually stepping into Deus Ex’s future, where an NSA runs rampant and biomechanics can rebuild men, makes the experience even more surreal today. We can’t wait to see what the future of Deus Ex has in store.

4. Dota 2

With Steam breaking several records for concurrent users this year, a lot of credit goes to Team Fortress 2, but Dota 2 is perhaps more deserving for serving up a viciously addicted community to the Valve overlords. When Valve didn’t anticipate the fan base’s hunger for a Halloween themed event, the fan base exploded and even harassed corporations outside of video gaming for their slightly different content. Look for Dota 2 to continue growing with every major eSport event.

3. Team Fortress 2

Valve’s class-based warfare has gone off the rails in recent years, but it has continued to define the online multiplayer space with community-focus, allowing the players themselves to shape the experience and make a difference throughout the community. When a game looks like a Pixar movie, features characters as colorful as a bloody rainbow, and maintains a thriving community like TF2, we have to stop and recognize.

2. World of Warcraft

New expansions continue to maintain World of Warcraft’s dominance in the MMO space. While forces like Bethesda’s The Elder Scrolls Online hope to bring down Blizzard’s reigning market champion in 2014, it’ll be a long, dusty road to anything resembling the polished, feature-complete experience you can find in World of Warcraft today.

1. Half-Life 2 w/ Episodes 1 & 2

There’s a reason all of PC gaming continues to hope, yearn, and hold out for a sequel to Valve’s first-person shooter series and that’s because no other franchise has captured the hearts and minds of gamers. From an unexpected hero in Gordon, to an endearing partner in Alyx, to a giant robot named Dog, Half-Life 2 Episode 2’s cliff-hanger ending has us screaming for more. How long will PC gamers have to wait to finish the fight with the Combine and bump into the G-man once more?
