Hey so I was wondering whether we should have a community thread where we put up the must-play games for PC that came about from about 1995-2005, many people seem to be oblivious to the fact that some great games came out in this period (at least, in my area). Most people nowadays focus on the current games such as Crysis and Skyrim (both of which are good games) but I thought the older ones need a little exposure here.
So here's my view: 1) Starcraft (and it's expansion Brood War)
3) Halo Combat Evolved (I've seen many people skip this game and go straight to 3 and Reach)
4) Devil May Cry 3
5) Shogun Total War (the first one)
Try to keep the lists short, not really more than 4-5 i guess, and don't repeat of course! Looking forward to finding out about games!
Heroes 4 was horrendous, 5 didn't get much better because it was the first time ubisoft was doing the game after they acquired the IP. 6 on the other hand is quite decent with a few new mechanics that add to gameplay.
1. Jagged Alliance 2
3. Cossacks: European Wars
4. Total Annihilation
5. MechWarrior 3, 4
I mean, when you take a decade, there's hundreds of good games that come out during that period.
