Hey everyone,
Post your favorite PC game (or games) of all time and the reasons you love them so much.

Mine would most likely be X-Com: UFO Defense, with the rest of the Trilogy in hot pursuit.
The combination of world-screen micromanagement with the tense tactical combat and creepy/mysterious aliens just makes me so excited.
I have so many great memories from that game.

XCOM FTW! That's probably one of the first games I ever played.

In recent years I'd have to say Portal has assumed a special place in my PC collection, with Dawn of War in there too.

My favorite games are starcraft and ragnarok online.
I remmember playing starcraft back in the day until like 5am sending hordes of zergs at my poor enemies >:D it was so much fun. Ragnarok online I started a bit later and its what got me started on mmos.

CSS, Starcraft, Red Alert 2, and probably some other games that I can't remember right now.

I don't know if anyone's heard of it, but I used to play "Cube Hopper" all the time.

#10 Edited by down_and_out (18 posts) -

Probably StarCraft.

I'd put Battlefield 1942 and TIE Fighter up near the top also.

#11 Posted by Breadfan (6589 posts) -

#12 Posted by Djrocks (93 posts) -

Hard one, I guess my favorite of all time has to Half-Life 2.

Red Alert 2.

#14 Posted by lux (128 posts) -

Doom 2 or Half Life 2.

I can't decide!

Red Alert 2, WarCraft 3 and Call of Duty for me

Half-Life or StarCraft

#17 Posted by Gunner612 (4338 posts) -

Its a tie between KOTOR, NWN2 and crysis.

Team Fortress 2 because I have never played a game for some many days in a row and still have fun with it

I haven't played many PC games, but my favorite would have to be Half Life 2 followed by Counter Strike.

Hehe, ya those are some great games.
Spent soooo many hours on the first four.

Kinda surprised noone mentioned "The Witcher", one of the better PC RPG's to come lately.
Great story, where "bad" decisions kinda make you like a dick :P

Baldur's Gate II

#30 Posted by NeoTheta (222 posts) -

Easily my favorite PC game is Deus Ex. Sets the standard for so many games, and is just an amazing experience to this day. I really hope the third game will stay true to the first game, and not be a general disappointment like the second one.

#31 Posted by TheIneffableBob (243 posts) -

This is a tough one, but I'll say StarCraft.

#32 Posted by mclazyj (5 posts) -

Starflight is still my all time favorite game on any platform.  It is very dated now, but I have never been so awed by a game in my 36 years on this planet.  Knights of the Old Republic is a close second followed by the original X-Com and the original Bard's Tale.

#33 Posted by Ossi (1229 posts) -

StarCraft
Diablo
Warcraft 2

In that order.

#34 Posted by Nomin (964 posts) -

Alpha Centauri

#35 Posted by fenixREVOLUTION (735 posts) -

Diablo 2

#36 Posted by RedSox8933 (2428 posts) -

civ IV or diablo 2

#37 Posted by jimmy5150 (122 posts) -

all time would probably be any game in the space quest series (that's what got me started)

more recently, probably civilization 4

#38 Posted by Forzen (89 posts) -

Half-life or Diablo 2 for me.

#39 Posted by MrWolf (8 posts) -

Doom started it all, but I'll have to go with Baldur's Gate - awesome game.

#40 Posted by SphynxTA (20 posts) -

Duke Nukem 3D or Half-Life 2.

#41 Posted by Spark (46 posts) -

Doom, Daggerfall or Deus Ex. I loved those three the most and have put many hous into each of them.

#42 Posted by IndieBoy (109 posts) -

My favourite is Battlefield 2!

#43 Posted by Hastur (12 posts) -

My top 5 would be:

Portal
Fallout 1
Diablo 1
Half Life 1
Heroes of Might and Magic 3

#44 Posted by TheBeast (1931 posts) -

The Monkey Island series. No question.

#45 Posted by DavidLeeRoth (137 posts) -

Half-Life.

#46 Posted by nezze00 (144 posts) -

It's between Half-Life and Counter-Strike.

#47 Posted by nutcrackr (67 posts) -

Team Fortress Classic probably, hundreds upon hundreds of hours in that game, MP was such a huge blast and it never seemed to get old. Great fun. I even spent a good few months "concing" which was basically lots of maps made for scout and medic to conc through, over big jumps, amazing stuff really.

Runners up would be Dues Ex, Half-Life.

#48 Posted by floorswine (169 posts) -

Any of the Command & Conquer games! I completely loved Red Alert 1 back in the day, and C&C Generals: Zero Hour is great for LAN games.

#49 Posted by Dollarbill (12 posts) -

Diablo II - played it all day long and still do sometimes

#50 Posted by crumble (4 posts) -

The original Half Life or Fallout for me.
