From the computer to the tabletop, this is all about games. Updated each week-end.
When I see an article with ‘best of’ in the title I expect to either be disinterested or annoyed by the list, and so it was that I clicked on Kotaku’s list of 24 classic PC Games.
However, I have to say the list is thoughtfully put together. The few (maybe 4) games which wouldn’t have made my own version of the list, I could see good reasons to have them there.
If you have ever thought about playing through some classic PC games, you could do a lot worse than go through the titles on this list. In general I would recommend remakes where those are available. For example Black Mesa is a great remake of Half-Life. Also There’s an extended edition of Baldur’s Gate II that is worth playing over the original. I hear there’s a Diablo II remakes on the way, but after Warcraft III, I won’t recommend that automatically.
If you do play through the list, be prepared to spend many hours in Sid Meier’s Alpha Centauri.
