  1. Exelent list! Wish there were some other games included like one of Prince of Persia or World of Warcraft, but at least you added other games that don’t get prasing enough like Company of Heroes or Witcher 2. Keep up the good work.

  2. Tbh The list seems really flawed as some of the indie games are probably rated by way fewer critics and mroe importantly much less user reviews, without forgetting how those users tend to somewhat overrate these types of games for many reasons such as supporting them or getting their very low expectations blown away, which increases their ratings by alot and makes them believe that it is somewhat of a special hidden gem that very few know about. As for the very popular games such as the Grand Theft Auto Series, we all know how alot of people, unfortunately, tend to give them bad/very bad scores as some will feel that they are overrated by looking at the review scores from places like Metacritic even though they still enjoyed them to an extent, since they can feel that those games underdelivered compared to what they expected. And some folks just seem to enjoy hating on the popular to feel more special and believe that they have a more creative and unique taste. But the main and more prominent out of these is still the fact that basically, most of the time those who buy indie games rate them higher(this is mostly true for good/decent ones), and those who get the popular and critically acclaimed games rate them lower(sometimes much lower) Thus getting you with a list like this, which i’m sure took alot of time and effort to make so i still respect your efforts, its just the system you’re using for these lists is showing its flaws.

  3. man, all loser fanboys are gonna be pissed, I don’t need to scroll through the comments, the stench is strong lmao!

  4. My favorite PC game ever has been Deus Ex and Deus Ex Rev.. Maybe you should play them to see what I’m talking about. 9.5/10. Cheers!

  5. I hate all these games. That’s why I’m determined to learn programming with the half a brain cell I have so I can make a game I like.
