GameRevolution's Top 25 PC Games

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



15. Minecraft

Unlike virtually every other game on this list, Minecraft ditched complexity for a minimalistic design. Its entire world was constructed with square blocks which could be used build anything you could think of. You can find pictures on the internet of castles, massive statues, and even recreations of the Earth all made using Minecraft’s simple toolkit. Getting online with a friend and making something was strangely addicting, and it was always worth the effort after seeing the result. Those who weren’t as adept at creativity found hospice in the game’s survival mode where the game threw in a day/night cycle, hunger, and enemies, driving players to craft items and interface with the world.



14. Team Fortress 2

As with Portal 2, Valve used creative character design to pump up the fun factor of Team Fortress 2. Instead of the serious tones of other shooters, Team Fortress 2 drove for a cartoon-style with a vibrant palette and witty humor. Characters cracked jokes as they blew each other to bits—literally—and toggling between the game’s nine-distinct classes never grew tiring. Lead the way with a minigun, or make the enemy pay with a rocket launcher? Decisions, decisions.




13. Age of Empires II: The Age of Kings

Ensemble Studios believed RTS had the capacity to bring history to life, and their second shake at it was a masterpiece. The journey through the eras of civilization was met with fantastic gameplay and presentational values. People who didn’t find enjoyment in other strategy games found Age of Empires II’s friendly design and exciting combat to be an irresistible affair. Its campaign contained great historical moments while its multiplayer was a crowd-pleaser.




12. Portal 2

Puzzle games are one of the least-represented genres in gaming, but Portal 2 demonstrated how good the genre can be when it came out in 2011. Using the simple portal gun, the opportunity for exciting puzzle-solving was created. As fun as the gameplay was, it was the hilarious dialogue that pushed it from being a fun game to being an extremely memorable one. As if the game’s delightful story mode wasn’t enough, working with a friend in co-op was enthralling. Its charming atmosphere and mentally-engaging puzzles were one of the biggest surprises in 2011 for hardcore gamers and casuals alike.





11. The Sims

Development studio Maxis had a dream that recreating the monotony of everyday life in the virtual space would be a smash hit. Surprisingly, its dream was right on the money. The Sims sold out for days following its release and has become the best-selling franchise on the entire PC platform. People were drawn in by the virtual development of a typical household, from its habitants to its furnishings. You could get a job, have kids, and go to the bathroom. The joy of seeing a virtual person go from rags to riches under your guidance was something millions of people couldn’t get enough of.
