  • Starcraft 1. There is still hope for Toms :D.Many games that are here I must admit I never played, but I can aggree with some titles like Doom3 (oh man, when this came out it was crazy, I can only pray they do such a great job with Doom 4).Skyrim is rather obvious but Id rather see morrowind here.I also agree on D2 over D3, but D2 came to life when gaming was much less popular.WoW is no suprise :D.Tomb raider 2 is cute, but I sort of would have liked to see a Price of persia title in here. Nostalgia and all.

  • 4If I had to pick a top 3 from this list it would be Everquest, Counter Strike, and Skyrim.The fact that league of legends isn't on this list is beyond fail especially when they put Diablo 3 on the list that's just trolling.

  • On what basis have they made this article . If it is on the basis of no. of copies sold. Then they must include gta 5 which sold around 32.5 million copies and what about call of duty.

  • "Baldur’s Gate is a role-playing game (RPG) with sales exceeding two million units. Released in 1998, it is the first title to be set in the famous Forgotten Realms, and is heavily inspired by Advanced Dungeons & Dragons."There were many other titles set in the Forgotten Realms before BG, and it is not inspired by AD&D. AD&D is the set of rules that BG runs on.

  • It says "Most Popular *PC* Games", so GTA 5 wouldn't qualify, at least not yet. GTA San Andreas has PC version but available data seems to indicate most of sales are generated from consoles, same for CoD series.Not sure about Diablo 2, I thought it should be on the list, maybe Diablo 3 does sell more due to its modern status and anticipation.Well PC gamers, time to step up :)

    To be fair, the title "popular" can be ambiguous and doesn't fit the description on page one, which says "sold" numbers are used. The title needs to change to "30 best-selling PC games".

  • I am happy to see Guild Wars in your list. I still play it. I believe it was a pioneer of the F2P model that was not P2W, and works well.

  • They got so many titles right, that i'm not even gonna complain about Civilization 2.

  • So how come EVE Online is not on this list? It has had well over 3 million subscribers but not all simultaneously. Homework needed.
