It's a terrible list... and then you link directly to said list?

It's got some weird games there for it being an PC game exclusive list, but it ain't that bad. I notice it's written by one guy which leads to more personal lists.

Exactly. Post the list and don't link at all. No one should have to visit that crap site.

Alternatively, don't make a thread about IGN in the first place.

The Holocaust was a terrible event. We have to teach about it in school. The list is almost at the same level. We need to make sure history never repeats itself.

Except that the Nazis don't get money for ads they put on the Holocaust.

Bioshock is number 1? Didn't the pc version have a bunch of trouble or am I remembering wrong?

I don't see why it's a terrible list, certainly since it's just an opinion. Plus, what you have written is too small to be worthy of discussion. I mean, what are we really supposed to say? It really doesn't matter.

I'm not a PC gamer but BioShock was a marvellous game. Truly a modern classic.

To be fair, it was actually about seven minutes.

You know who else would create an example of Godwin's law within seven minutes? The Nazis.

Heh. When I saw Company of Heroes, I knew it'd have Anthony Gaegos' name there. Back in the GFW days, Sean Elliot and Anthony would play the shit outta it. By play, I mean fuck with people, but still...

I don't mind the list but why didn't they just post it all in one to two pages? Fuck clicking through 5 pages, that's garbage.

A checked out that list just after it'd been published and it was all on one page. I was in awe and amazement. Looks like it didn't stay like that for long!

The fact that most of the list isn't pc games but ports of console games is part of it. The fact that most of them make no sense. Why is Civilization 5 more important than the game that started the series Civ 1? Many of the game on it simply don't belong on a top 25 pc games list as well. Seriously, Diablo 3? Diablo 2 I probably could have said.... fine okay.... but 3? No dice.

@Karkarov: Because its a list of the 25 best modern PC games and neither Civ 1 or Diablo 2 are modern. Games eligible for the list had to be released from 2006-2012.

Edit: The list is not bad, it's just that it's safe enough to get some controversial clicks and stuff.

It did and still does. It's a great game, but I had to jump through hoops just to get it running on my pc the first time I tried it.

As much as I enjoyed playing Minecraft, there are way better games that deserve to be on that list.

@Spoonman671: @Rawrz: Fair enough, but it doesn't address the fact that the list could be renamed to "best 25 modern console to pc ports" without having to change around half the list. It isn't much of a list any way you slice it.

What the fuck does that matter?  All those "console ports" are awesome games that stand shoulder-to-shoulder with the PC exclusives.  Should all of their PS3 lists exclude games like Fallout 3 and Hot Pursuit because they're also on other platforms and might be ports?  A good game is a good game.

PC version of that game was majorly borked at release. I think it's fine where it is.

List seemed ok, nothing particularly glaring.
