Hey guys, IGN said something and I'm angry about it.  RAWR!

#3 Posted by Andorski (5310 posts) -

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

#4 Posted by Linkster7 (1025 posts) -

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.

#8 Posted by BabyChooChoo (4511 posts) -

Wow. And that's directed at this thread, not the list.

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

I like all the games on that list.

How the fuck did you bring in Godwin's law within a second?

#16 Posted by NTM (7379 posts) -

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.

#17 Posted by Deranged (1837 posts) -

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.

Fucking Nazi's would do that wouldn't they? Those Nazi bastards.

(Does that mean Flacracker is a Nazi?!)

The Top 25 Modern PC Games

Top 25 PC Games from 2000-2011

TOp 25 PC Games of all Time.

...really IGN?

#22 Posted by Zelyre (1199 posts) -

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...

#23 Posted by Zacagawea (1594 posts) -

Can we have a new forum rule where writing a sentence and linking to something on IGN is ban worthy?

#24 Posted by Bulby33 (590 posts) -

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.

#25 Posted by sociald1077 (263 posts) -

I don't get the hate. What am I missing here? The list seems fine.

#26 Posted by ADAMWD (591 posts) -

List looks good to me.

#27 Posted by Lumley (959 posts) -

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.

#29 Posted by Slydotcom (84 posts) -

Wow that list is totally ballz..

#30 Posted by Rawrz (590 posts) -

@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.

Dude, it says "modern" PC games.

You're not missing anything. This is just what this community does.

I fell for it....

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.

#36 Posted by BraveToaster (12589 posts) -

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

#37 Posted by Karkarov (3102 posts) -

@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.

but a "great" game?

#40 Posted by SirPsychoSexy (1329 posts) -

Why does anyone give a flying fuck what their list looks like, let them have their opinions. Get over it.

#41 Posted by benpicko (2008 posts) -

I stopped at GTA IV. Great game. Shit port.

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.

If I had a nickel for every IGN list... I could probably buy IGN from Fox and stop these lists.

#46 Posted by sins_of_mosin (1556 posts) -

Pretty lame list.  Borderlands should be top 5 easy.

#47 Posted by CrazyBagMan (842 posts) -

So the list with all great games on it is terrible why?

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

List seemed ok, nothing particularly glaring.

I sware lists are like 90% of their articles, everyone should just stop going there and giving them traffic/ad revenue

I don't know, that list seems okay to me!
