PC Gamer held an "epic survey" amongst readers to determine the best PC games of all time, and has published the top 20. It's a sobering read, but at least it's RPG-heavy, featuring Baldur's Gate II: Shadows of Amn (#18), Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic (#17), BioShock (#15), Mass Effect (#12), World of Warcraft (#10), Dragon Age: Origins (#8), The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion (#7), EVE Online (#3) and Fallout 3 (#2).
2. Fallout 3
Last year: New entry
Finding every little precious gaming moment. If you didn't overturn every rock, you didn't know what you might be missing.
Must eat congressman's brain.
Fallout 3 provided an experience that is so unique to the video game medium: I created my own experiences and stories.
It's like the Mad Max movies, without the vehicles.
All the different ways you could go about each quest, all the ways you could build your character, and all the great mods for the game. Everything in this wonderful game just made me want more.
