How did Dawn of War 2 get on that list? The original Dawn of War is so much better. Company of Heroes is better than both though.

I liked G4's Top-100 video games of all time series they played last week!

Ultima Online was on there, but not on this one!? Boo to that.

So? It's just one game.

Definitely helped put casual gaming and tablet-based games on the map though.

As if angry birds needed more popularity.

But still, different opinions i guess.

Hah.

Portal 2 > Portal

New Vegas > Fallout 3

Arkham City should be much, much higher.

This list is a joke.

I really don't like top lists of anything - No-one's ever happy except the person who created them.

I admit I haven't played most of the games on the list, but of the games I have played I'm also a bit puzzled by the order and why some games are on the list instead of another from the same series which was better.

For example since it's PC gamer I assume that they refer to the PC versions of the games, so why would they put Stranger's Wrath on the list (was very buggy and still in the process of being fixed) but not the original Oddworld game? Or how come they put Max Payne 2 and left out the first game?

I do agree with including both Deus Ex and Human Revolution while leaving Invisible War though :P And Curse of Monkey Island is the best Monkey Island game by far so I'm okay with that one too.

These charts don't make sense, they never did.

The Secret of Monkey Island is not one of the best 100 PC game?!

I know: they have to write charts because people want to read them...
