Peace in the Era of Call of Duty

Posted on 04/15/14
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

Posted on Tuesday, December 25 @ 11:30:05 Eastern by Jonathan_Leack



20. Doom

When Doom released, there was no turning back. Gamers were infatuated with the joy of blasting away demons, and firing the BFG-9000 was just about the most entertaining thing you could do on a computer in 1993. It’s the father of shooters (alongside Wolfenstein 3D) with its satisfying gunplay later inspiring the creation of Call of Duty, Counter-Strike, and other popular shooters. The 3D-rendered halls were critical to the evolution of video games, so if nothing else it was a huge stepping stone for the virtual world—and arguably mankind.




19. League of Legends

League of Legends is the most popular game in the world and for good reason. It took the wildly successful formula of DotA and weaved in some of its own magic. The result was a game that provided the perfect breeding ground for competition. It’s considered the top competitive game around the world for its emphasis on teamwork, timing, and skill. Not only would it show that action RTS games are extremely relevant, but that the free-to-play model is the future for multiplayer-based PC games.




18. Baldur’s Gate

BioWare’s second product was an instant hit that every RPG fan was drawn to. Baldur’s Gate was the first Dungeons and Dragons inspired video game to nail down the formula with complex stories, deep character customization, and bucket-loads of exploration. Additionally, its morals system incentivized several playthroughs making it a game that some RPG fans spent the entirety of the year playing. They were never to be seen again.




17. The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion

Bethesda made its entry into the modern gaming landscape with just about the biggest bang possible when it debuted The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion in 2006. It quickly became the must-play game of its era and showed that realistic graphics and game worlds do make an RPG that much more immersive. If they weren’t enough to suck people in, its hundreds of quests were. Even after completing its hundreds of hours of content, there was still more to enjoy due to the expansive list of community-developed mods.




16. Unreal Tournament

Unreal Tournament is where many FPS addicts got their start. Coupled with stellar gameplay, it delivered a polished experience with some of the best visuals of the time. Its frantic, high-paced combat style was backed by a diverse array of weapons that were always fun to use. Also, have you ever played a game and heard an announcer say “Dominating!", “Double Kill!", or “Godlike!” Well, those came directly from Unreal Tournament. Despite being thirteen years of age, you can go back and have a blast rotating through several powerful weapons, laying opponents to waste, and then hear the announcer say “Killing spree!"
