it seamlessly weaves into the game’s main
storyline, and get your mind blown. It has
a PlayScore of 9.32
1. And the best PC Game of all time is none
other than Portal 2
As if there was any doubt. (Okay, maybe some.)
But, with its ongoing presence in Valve’s
other titles and vast collection industry
accolades, there’s really no questioning Portal
2’s place in videogame history. Hell, even
Valve CEO and part-time God, Gabe Newell,
chooses Portal 2 over the PC’s precious Half-life
series. Immerse in the life of Chell, roam
around the mind-bending Aperture Labs, and
inevitably fall in love.
Of course, with its intelligently designed
physics-based puzzles, memorable characters,
and brilliant humor, they create a trio of
unforgettable experiences. The cake might
be a lie, but the greatness of Portal 2 definitely
isn’t. Take a friend with you! It has a PlayScore
of 9.44.

  5. Bullshit, Das ist mit Sicherheit die schlechtes Zusammenstellung die ich je gesehen hab. Starcraft II nicht mal unter den Top 20. du hast ja mal sowas von keine Ahnung

  6. Where? The Cat Lady. Pathologic .Vampire Bloodlines is much better or MASS SHIT BORING EFFECT , Planescape Torment – is number one amator

  7. what is the pony island man are you insane your list is like a when i put it something of closet after left toilet.

  8. So many fucking wasted spots on yet another garbage list. You couldn't have included Warcraft 3. One of the best games to ever grace the pc world. Even though it came out in 2002 it has aged like fine wine. And of course the fucking dead horse meme that is putting Portal 2 on #1. A game that did fuck all except capitalize on the success of Portal 1, barely adding anything worthwhile.

  9. Some of these games don't deserve to be in the list : Bioshock I bought the game and couldn't wait to play until after installing it was hit with one after another technical issue. Bullshit I say ! I wasted time and money.

  10. a top 50 list with no

    Cities: Skylines
    Far Cry 3
    any GTA game
    Outlast
    Life is Strange
    Doom
    Tomb Raider (2013)

    is just a joke…

  11. haahahaha hohohohooho hihihhihiihiiiiiii really a sad list ! are you telling me that portal is better than the witcher and skyrim and dark souls 3 and all the other epic games and what about diablo 3 !!! ? this is so sad bro !! these poeple are fans of shooting and puzzle games and you too of course loOL

  12. Heeeelp…
    I want a game name.it's about a kidnapped boy by a van and his parents are searching for him and fighting monsters
    Might-help details: the wife is on the shoulders of the mane and she beheads any enemy get too close
    The man hold guns in two hands

  13. ffs, can I find one list to give me ideas on what to buy that isn’t fucking 90 percent weeb games. IDC if kazahumari teriyaki 22 has a play score of 9 and a half pls put more non indie Japanese games in these lists.
