No one can replace the old school MMO's like Dark Age of Camelot, Ultima Online, but I will take it much further and list some MUDs (Multi User Dungeons) even though they are not "PC games". How about, Dragon Realms (Still running), or Dragons Gate? And for you AOL lovers, how about the old school .99 cent an hour to play game Splatterball & Splatterball Plus!

Greatest most groundbreaking PC game of all time, without a doubt: Doom
And yes, I know Wolfenstein 3D was first (by same developers) but wasn't even close to how good Doom was. The developers of Wolfenstein 3D held back on Wolfensten and formed their own company to make Doom immediately after because they saw the potential. Here is what Doom popularized if not outright invented:
1) First Person Shooters (and texture mapping). At one time every FPS was called a "Doom Clone" just like many MMOs are called "WoW-clones" today
2) Online multiplayer. There were news stories almost weekly of business LANs being overrun by the geek admins running Doom deathmatch when they shouldnt have been
3) Mods. Their WAD files spurred a whole bunch of downloadable mods to the game. My favorite was the Simpsons mod
4) Shareware. For Doom they didn't even sell in stores originally. They gave away 1/3 of the game for free on the internet, and people had to send them a check to get the full game.
Now tell me THAT isn't influencing gaming...
GW2 "built from the ground up with microtransactions in mind"1) Cash->Gems->Gold->Influence->WvWvWBoosts = PAY2WIN2) Mystic Chests = Crass in-game cash shop advertisements
