    1.Half-life (giving birth to Counter Strike which became the giant of online gaming)

    2. Unreal Tournament (the standard for twitch-base shooters)

    3.Starcraft (setting the standards for RTS)

    4.Everquest (the game that most mmorpgs are based off of today)

    5. Warcraft 3 (inspiration of Dota and the birth of the Moba genre)

         In no particular order:

    EQ1 - Best MMo of all time, especially in the early years

    Wizardry 8 - One of the best kept RPG secrets....Too bad the company went under

    Daggerfall - The 2nd game in the ES series was alot of fun

    Master of Magic - Another pretty well kept secret

    Master of Orion 2 - Great space game

    I could not pick a personal best 5 myself.  There are too many good ones out there.

    My blog is a continuing story of what MMO's should be like.

    1. EQ - Nothing will ever compare to the feeling I had when I first stepped into the world Norrath.

    2. Dark Age of Camelot - Mordred PvP Server..nough' said.

    3. Half-Life - The game was freaky as hell! Not to mention counter-strike..

    4. League of Legends - Massively addicting gameplay.

    5. Fallout series - self explanatory

     

    I'm aware that others game before LoL..I just think LoL did it best.

    There are two kinds of people in this world. People who pick their nose.. and liars.

    Top 5 isn't descriptive enough... but the top 5 games that stick out in my mind as game changers were:

    Quake because it was a huge first. Quake was more than a shooter, it was a platform that allowed players to create content.

    Quake 2 improved on Quake and was perfect in a way that the following games have not been.

    Fallout.

    Diablo.

    EQ if only because they proved it could be done.

    Of course there were a lot of great games before these (Wolfenstein, Doom, Duke Nukem) but PC games didn't really start to shine until the mid to late 90s.

    of all time? ? ?

     

    Definatly none of the ones listed above :P

     

    if u want to say 'prettiest games of all time' or 'best story' etc, sure, but best games of all time(Sorry to upset the younger folks) would be the oooooold classics (IE pacman, space invaders, etc)

     

    Even today people strive to beat the highest scores, for 30-35 years :D

     

    Not a single other game can compare to just how long they have been 'played'

     

    Others since have sold more, simply because games have become much more accessable to more people than ever before, but even then, the old classics are still reproduced over and over on each and every platform.
