It’s the era of open world role-playing games and no game draws you into its romanticized fantasy world than The Witcher 3. The combat mechanic is natural and fun while still being challenging, the graphics are splendid, strong, and distinct without imploring any cheap tricks. It’s hard to grasp how magical and special Wild Hunt is until you actually sit in front of your computer and teleport to a different world.

How can we omit the most time-eating game (no, activity) of all time? All respects to the niche Football Manager franchise, but it’s Sid Meier’s pride that has caused as many sleepless nights as sex and depression combined. The 4X game Civilization V is the shiniest part of one of the longest standing franchises, improving on the known concept in every way imaginable.
Half-Life 2 (2004)

The cries for the sequel to this game are too hard not to include it on the list. The hiccups that Gabe Newell constantly has are the result of the sheer brilliance of the Half-Life 2. One of the most iconic first person shooters that is equally impressive on the surface as it is at its core. The story and the graphics draw you into the world of Half-Life 2 like the gravity gun, and the pure entertainment makes you revisit it for so long. Almost a perfect video game, and definitely one of the best PC games of all time.

The best games of all time are not just enjoyable, they move the whole industry forward and give us a glimpse into what was then considered as the future. Rome: Total War managed to do that on the scale, graphics, and the addictive gameplay. Despite being a part of a very successful franchise, it’s the conquering of Europe under the banners of Julii, Brutii, or Scipii that stuck in the collective memories of gamers. And it’s that which made this RTS/turn-based strategy game stand out.
Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain(2015)

2015 was a great game for gaming as two titles from it are on this list of best PC games of all time, and the second, Metal Gear Solid V perhaps differs from all the rest titles the most. It’s an action-adventure stealth video game and one that truly pushes the boundaries of gaming by having a variety of mechanics that allow for a high degree of player freedom. The resistance fighting resembling premise gives the necessary coolness and ingenuity needed for a game to be amongst the best PC games of all time.
