Topping the list of the greatest PC games of all time is Half Life 2. Valve’s 2004 release received countless praise from experts. Gaming Age is not afraid to spend 100 with comments.

The city of Los Santos appears in Grand Theft Auto V filled with light, the screen stars both in their heyday and fading. In addition, it is also a place for 3 criminals: Franklin, Michael and Treavor to seek opportunities to change their lives by daring missions. The game was originally released on PlayStation 3 and XBox 360 in 2013 and got a PC version 2 years later. Grand Theft Auto V broke many game sales records by bringing Rockstar $ 800 million after just 1 day of launch.
Launching a blockbuster game was difficult, Valve even brought 3 of their famous games into 1 disc The Orange Box: Half-Life 2: Episode Two, Team Fortress 2 and puzzle game Portal. The product is not only unique in the way it is released, but also makes the PC game village seem revived by constant updates via Steam. 13 years after its release date, Portal and Team Fortress 2 are still beloved games, which won many big and small awards in the industry.
The 1998 Half-Life version is still the epitome of Stephen King-style storytelling. The thrilling action combined with advanced technology has created a terrifyingly realistic game world, forcing players to brainstorm to survive. In November 1999, the game was also honored by PC Gamer as the best PC game of all time.
