    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.

    Probably Doom. I think that's what started it all for me.

    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.

    Probably StarCraft.

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

    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

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.
