Can you give me the 25 best pc games. 25 best single player games on a pc.
No console, no handheld, no multiplayer, only pc. I know there's another thread about 5 best pc games but i want 25 and i'll give you 25.

I'm a 32 year old gamer with 25 year experience and I know what i'm talking about (lol)
And i will give you games that are still fun today.
I'm also not a classic lover, i play today's games, but i'll give you the best of all time. The ones you can say yeah that was good and is still good (i know pacman was fun in it's day, but i wouldn't play that anymore (maybe 1 minute on the google site)

here they come

1. Moonstone (was on amiga, also a pc, regardless of what you think you will like this game, unique)

2. Drakan (my best friend is a big dragon)

3. Halflife (what do you expect?)

4. Unreal (you'd better be good)

5. Hitman (the revelation)

6. Dawn of war (for the emperor)



7. Another world (amiga) (pssht)

8. Gta san andreas (planes, boats, cars, samuel l jackson and so much more)

9 Bioshock (creepy, psychologically challenging piece of art)

10. Resident evil 2 (scary!)

11. Abe's oddworld (very odd!)

12. Bloodrayne (god i love the dismemberment)

13. Resident evil 4 (you will replay)

14. Return to castle wolfenstein (nazi's and zombies mix very well)

15. international karate +



15. Mass effect (art meets technology)

16. Thief the dark project (sneak sneak sneak)

17. Fear (now that was good)
spoiler

18. Far cry (my god the graphics!!)

19. Crysis (my god the graphics!!!)

20. Gta IV (Do I know that city?)

21. Tie: Medal of honor: Allied Assault / Call of Duty

(which historic battle do you like the most)

22. Homeworld (3d rts with spaceships ?)

23. Prince of persia the warrior within (when i die,i just rewind)

24. Aliens vs predator (it was bound to happen)

25. Red faction (Can I destroy that)


Any suggestions,questions, comments, flames, are all welcome

What are your best 25 pc games of all time?

subspace continuum HAS to be one of the games at the top, it was made in 1995 and its still being played with a big community of players.

Its also very unique because even though the game is not visibly attractive to is still alive and popular (with not hard-core gamers).

You either missed out, or haven't played, the best Trekkie game out there.

Star Trek: Bride Commander.

It's a older (well 2005ish), but absolutely awesome, ST game which I consider the best ST game.

Also, you should get the "Fleet Operations" game if you have Armada 2. You need to have Armada 2 to play it, but it is like a whole new game because it is so much better and more HD lol.

Plus, there is new extras like the Dominion (and Breen if you choose that speciality).

I have the demo for BC, back when it was on the shelf I was on a budget. I finally planned on going to buy it in 2 days. The very next day I got laid off. Ever since then I've never seen a copy(It's not been produced since then).

From my list you can tell I like RTS style games. Can't deny BC is a good game but not my favorite.

Yes, I've been on board with Fleet Ops. I updated to the latest version this summer. Like any Mods(Including my own) they have have good things and bad things. Fleet ops by far is the best one out there but I don't like the lack of planets or warp.

I did release 3 mods of my own back around 2002-2004 (A2). I did the Andromeda , Ferengi Salvage Team and Renegade Borg mod (Each one improved as I improved). I created many other race mods without release

In complete and utter honesty, I cannot name 25 top PC games. Here are the handful of PC games that stole time from my life...

Zork Series
SimCity
Myst
The Elder Scrolls
MS FreeCell
Thief Series, particularly The Metal Age
The Bard's Tale (The first PC RPG I ever played on the PC)
Ultima IV (Apple IIe)
Pool of Radiance

Well, that makes less than half a list!

These aren't in any particular order; and they aren't my personal favorites (I do like most of them) but I put them on the list due to the sheer popularity and awesome reception of them.

1. The Halo Series
2. Call of Duty Series
3. Farcry
4. Sims
5. World of Warcraft
6. Guild Wars
7. Battlefield Series
8. Theif Series
9. The Elder Scroll Series
10. Command and Conquer Series (Including Renegade)
11. Diablo
12. Age of Empires
13. Minecraft
14. Crysis Series
15. Tropico Series
16. Ghost Recon Series
17. The Delta Force Series
18. Counter Strike Games
19. Doom Series
20. Duke Nukem
21. Quake
22. Unreal Tournament
23. Monkey Island Series
24. Deus Ex
25. Live for Speed

Like I said, these aren't just my personal favorites, some are, but I made the list to show the dynamics of what is considared 'best'.
Unfortuantly, 25 just isn't enough to put all the ones that I believe deserve to be on the list, there are so many that I wish I could've put on there.
If anyone questions one of my choices, by all means tell me and I'll be happy to explain why I put it down. ;)
