    Just curious what some of the old-school guys are gonna say here but I will let you pick your number one and a runner-up afterwards.And also please explain why you think this game deserves to be called Best ever!

    Heres my claim to fame-
    1) Metro 2033 Redux- Simply put I think this game was amazing how much better then the original was,which I also love as well.The game Looks Amazing in my opinion, The setting also does it for me I love post apocalyptic so needless to say its my number one,I can never get bored of this game.

    2) Metro last Light-All the reasons stated above with a little xtra on the side hehe.:download:

    It's an overly heavy and in turn, difficult thing you ask.
    Some, like myself, even have difficulty narrowing it down to a "Top Ten" as there are so many great games, fond memories and wonderful experiences... pin-pointing one title as the "Best PC Game Ever" is a daunting task.

    But... I shall do my best.

    1. BLOOD - Monolith Production's debut title. A game they purchased from 3D Realms (back when 3D Realms had so many titles in the works, they actually had to sell some off to make progress on others).
    Blood stands as one of my all time favorite shooters because of it's style. Some may see it's dated tech and gritty visuals as off putting, but the visual design, the art style. The atmosphere and tone throughout the game is fantastic.
    Not only does it call out heavily to horror films of the 80s and early 90s, it embraces it's black comedy vibe completely.
    Add in that it's a challenging and wonderfully paced shooter... fan-damn-tastic.

    2. System Shock 2 - While I have minor annoyances with it playing it's major twist a bit too soon, the end sequence being a bit weak... and the deteriorating weapons... I absolutely love this game.
    Again, the dark tone and hopeless feeling of dread and isolation are so thick. The atmosphere this game gives off is beyond memorizing.
    It's wonderful mix of a first person view, with RPG design... coupled with a horror/thriller setup. A classic in every definition of the word.


    Again, I can continue and name of countless other titles I feel are JUST as good. And, in ten minutes, I may think of a game I think is better.
    But, right now.. those two stand as the games I've returned to the most.

    Even though it isn't really old school, it is one of the best video games ever made.

    I got to go with Max Payne. That game is still one of my favorites, because as a package it is just perfect. Great story, great presentation and music, photorealistic graphics, great 3rd person action and bullet time and so on. An absolute masterpiece in my humble opinion.

    1.Half Life 1

    Back in 1998 it was far ahead of all other games in terms of _everything_.

    The upgraded Quake engine delivered lighting with real optical colors ( http://www.bluesnews.com/faqs/half-life.html ), dynamic AI, scripted sound atmospheric fx, had an interesting story that was unfolding in realtime ingame right before the player's eyes and unique weapons (Snarks!). Add to that the huge modding community rising from the Quake scene and you have a clear winner imo.

    2. GTA V

    Best GTA to date i think. Love the fact you can see the story from the perspectives of 3 very different characters. My only gribe with this game is that the story ends at some point. :( WHERE'S THE SP STORY DLC ?

    BTW it is from Remedy. Rockstar made only the third one.

    BTW2 Half-Life would be my second choice.

    Do you mean PC exclusive game or just generally any game, that was on pc and other platforms as well, because that's gonna be damn tricky to answer. It's a bit like asking what's the best game overall....

    As for pc exclusives, then I'd have to go for the original granddaddy-o of all the fps games Doom. It's so damn old, but still stands to this day and with brutal doom mod it manages whoop ass of most modern shooters easily.

    As a runner up though, I'd have to go with Stalker: Shadow of Chernobyl. Flawed and buggy, but it still has a great setting and rock solid atmosphere. To be honest, there are tons of great games and it's really tricky picking from all of 'em.

    Too many to list like all of the gurus above but stuff I STILL PLAY on PC:

    Half Life 1 Anthology - Svencoop online
    GTA 3, VC, SA, 4 and 5 - I love GTA.
    Doom 1/2 and Brutal Doom / Project Brutality
    Left for Dead 1 / 2
    Killing Floor 1 (I should buy 2 soon but finances are tight)
    Counter Strike Anthology
    Duke Nukem 3D anthology ... I enjoy this more so than Duke Nukem Forever...
    Blood 1 - I would love a DEMAKE of Blood 2 in Blood 1 fashion or a new Blood

    There are other classics such as Quake 1 or Doom 3 but I just don't place them anymore due to BETTER gameplay found in the above list.
