Official Top 10 List of All Time (Pc Games)

1.World Of Warcraft (2004)

World of Warcraft is a massively multiplayer online role-playing game (MMORPG) by Blizzard Entertainment. With its population of 11.5 million and growing, World of Warcraft is likely to be with us for a very long time!

2.Doom (1993)

"Doom defined the 3D-shooter genre and made multiplayer gaming mainstream," says Tim Sweeney, founder of Epic Games and creator of the Unreal Engine technology."And it did them with such incredible polish, artistry, and foresight that it created an industry."

3.Sid Meier's Civilization (1991)

  Few games are as addictively fun and as endlessly replayable as Civilization, a turn-based historical strategy game that invites players to guide the development of a civilization over the course of millennia.

4.SimCity (1989)

   "SimCity was one of the first games where a few very simple subsystems (crime, property value, traffic, etc.) combined to make an interesting and challenging experience"

5.M.U.L.E. (1983)

  The Atari 8-bit computer platform left a rich legacy of early computer games. Of those, M.U.L.E. stands out as the most important and influential.

6.Rogue: The Adventure Game (1984)

   Originally developed in 1980 for Unix mainframe systems, Rogue eventually found its way to personal computers, including (in 1984) the IBM PC in 1984; the image shown here is from that version of the game.

7.StarCraft (1998)

 Unlike any other real-time strategy (RTS) game, StarCraft seems to have carved out a unique niche for itself. At 9 million copies and counting, it's the largest-selling RTS game of all time, and likely the best.

8.The Sims (2000)

   The Sims is, in essence, a virtual dollhouse. But it's a virtual dollhouse that sold 16 million units--more than any other PC game in all of human history.

9.Myst (1993)

     It's hard to find a game simulataneously as successful and as misunderstood as Myst. This dark-horse title from the forests of Washington represented everything that twitch gamers hated, and everything that hard-core adventure fans resented. Nevertheless, it sold 6 million copies.

10.Trade Wars 2002 (1990)

For a surprising number of people, Trade Wars 2002 (TW2002) is the greatest PC game they've never heard of. This epic text-based space strategy game hails from a somewhat secret world of Bulletin Board System doors--early online games played on dial-up BBSs, which peaked in the 1980s and 1990s.
