Half-Life 2 Voted #1 PC Game of All Time
Seeing Half-Life 2 at the top of rankings has become so normal that it really isn’t even a surprise anymore. Still, Valve’s genre-defining first-person shooter, released in November of 2004, is starting to get a little long in the tooth.
Old or not, PC gamers still place it at the very top of the PC games list, and have been doing so since it was released. In a recent PC Gamer poll, Half-Life 2 garnered top honors, beating out the likes of Fallout 3, Deus Ex, World of Warcraft and others.
It’s not just PC Gamer: If you check out Metacritic’s PC ranking, you’ll find out that Half-Life 2 is still #1 there as well, with an overall rating of 96. I even replayed HL2 earlier this year, and it’s still a strong title, even at 5 1/2 years old.
If you haven’t played Half-Life 2, or if you just can’t remember which packing box you stored your game discs in and you need your fix, you can head over to Steam and grab the Half-Life 2 Complete Pack for $34.99.
Can you think of any other game (or series of games) that has captured the attention of so many gamers, and held up strongly for so long? If so, tell us below!
