I began playing Civ III then IV and now V...idk, seems regressive somewhat.

Like many games they're trying to simplify things and also detract from the original depth...

idk.

I just picked up Rogue Legacy on Steam for 5 bucks. It is a 2d side scrolling type game with SNES graphics but it is one of the most addictive and fun games I have ever played. Very challenging.

"Now that PCs are back on par with consoles..."

Um, what?

PCs have always been superior to consoles and will continue to be. The biggest drawback to PCs (as has already been stated) is the lack of sports games. You can blame EA for that, not the PC industry.

Also, trying to play any FPS on a console with a controller when you've been using a mouse and keyboard all your life is like trying to write with your left hand with you're right handed. The only console FPS I could ever enjoy was Gears of War.

(I will admit that the only reason I continued to buy a console was to play Madden & NCAA).

I go all the way back to the Zork days from a PC gaming standpoint but some of the first major favorites of mine were:

- Starcraft
- Diablo
- Quake
- Doom
- Unreal

As PC games began to evolve, I continued to be partial to FPS and RTS minded games, staying with the Doom & Quake series and the like. Age of Empires was great too, but I couldn't get into it as much as some others. I was always more fond of Empire Earth and the Command & Conquer series.

The Battlefield series become my absolute favorite once I played 1942 and continue to play Battlefield 4 to this day.

I tried WoW and just couldn't stomach more than 5 minutes of it. Dungeons & Dragons Online was FAR superior to WoW. I think it was the cartoon-ish graphics and no-brainer game play that lured people in to WoW. In DDO you actually had to put thought into your toons and game play.

Any PC gaming discussion cannot be held without mentioning the Half Life series as well. I think Valve changed the landscape of the industry with Half Life 2.

And can't leave out GTA :)

I think the Steam Machine will change the way people think about the "PC vs. Console War" but consoles are always going to win until you have full parity with all games. PC game ports cannot be an "afterthought" with developers (example: GTA 5 will be ported to PC in early 2014). I'm not sure we will ever see Madden return to the PC, unfortunately.

About the only thing I still play is Quake Live (Quake)...played some MMMMOGs such as Evony and Grepolis, but I'm not cut out for those type games: I don't like games that keep on playing my account even after I logged off to go to sleep, go to work, go to eat or go to live my life. I've always been a big FPS type player of games, and Quake is the fastest and hardest FPS of all time to master, so it keeps my competitive juices flowing...

I remember all the Quake 3 Arena LAN parties I'd go to back in the day.

Arena style shooters are the best. Cliff Bleszinski left Epic Games and was recently quoted as saying that he's working on a new arena-style shooter, ala Quake 3, UT, etc...

An arena style shooter with today's tech would be amazing.
