    1. Outcast (either in original, 1.1 or Second Contact form)
    2. Half-Life and Half-Life 2 (can't have one without the other)
    3. Grand Theft Auto 3
    4. Halo: Combat Evolved (can't wait for MCC!)
    5. Red Alert 2 + Yuri's Revenge
    6. DOOM (1993)

    8. Prince of Persia: the Sands of Time
    9. Company of Heroes
    10. Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas

    12. Quake Arena
    13. Assassin's Creed 2
    14. DOOM (2016)
    15. Call of Duty 4

    17. XCOM: Enemy Unknown
    18. Portal
    19. Assetto Corsa
    20. Unreal Tournament (1999)
    If I could've included console exclusives, I'd have added The Last of Us, Red Dead Redemption, Halo: Reach and Crackdown, which would've bumped a few PC releases out of the top twenty. Also, putting the list down feels a little strange when I know that some of these games I still play, while others I'll likely never touch again. But the impact they had on me and/or on gaming when I played them, still feels so important I rank them very highly (like the AssCreed Ezio trilogy, or CoD1, or Skyrim).

    I'll have to give this some thought.
    May have something later today. Right now... drawing a complete blank. Narrowing it down to 20 is.... pfft.

    doom reboot because it did a reboot right.
    oblivion well mods make it worth playing and replaying but it was my first bethesda game and one i still think fondly of with the horrific voice acting/direction janky animations and ai, outright cringe, and bugs lots and lots of bugs.
    dragon age origins the last of old school bioware an amazing game.
    mass effect 1 first in a beloved seriers till the wheels came off in 3 but how excited were we all when we played mass effect 1 even with all it problems?

    I have seen a lack of a certain quality PC game in this thread, and it's very disappointing. (This is called sarcasm... )

    (in no specific order)

    1. Blood
    2. Doom
    3. Quake 2
    4. Return to Castle Wolfenstein
    5. The Operative: No One Lives Forever
    6. System Shock 2
    7. Hexen
    8. Hexen II
    9. F.E.A.R.
    10. Duke Nukem 3D
    11. Max Payne
    12. Prey (2006)
    13. Clive Barker's The Undying
    14. Half-Life
    15. No One Lives Forever 2
    16. Doom 3
    17. Aliens VS Predator 2
    18. Deus Ex: Human Revolution
    19. DisHonored
    20. Brothers in Arms: Hell's Highway

    And countless other games. Honestly, this was very difficult... I normally hate this kinds of lists.
    There are too many games that I love, that are amazing... to break it down like this.
    I mean... there's also the Medal of Honor series, Soldier of Fortune, SiN... Chasm... the other Max Payne games. Jedi Knight series... and on and on.
