After nearly 200,000 votes (and lots and lots of comments about Dokapon Kingdom, which we owe an honorary shout-out to), you've decided the top 10 games that tore apart friendships like tissue paper. While some games incredibly did not make the cut, there's no denying that the games that did make it were built to test the limits of good sportsmanship and test relationships in ways that would make Erik Lehnsherr and Charles Xavier piss their pants. Somehow I think those two would have split apart a lot sooner if they had to play Portal 2's co-op mode together.
10. Marvel vs. Capcom (series)
Well, it makes sense that if the worlds of Marvel and Capcom can't get along, why should you and your friends be able to? While the series pits the two universes against each other, they usually come together in the end to defeat some big bad (and totally cheap) mega-villain. Too bad the same couldn't be said for the friendships that were torn asunder by this game, such as when Darren was button-mashing and picking Cable LIKE A COWARD.
Article The Top 15 PC Games of All Time
Thanks for voting in our search for the greatest PC game of all time! We've got your results here, but heads up, we only included the highest voted game from each series. No one wants to read about the same game three times. We'd have to copy/paste the previous entry and add "but with better graphics!" to the bottom. And that would be dumb. So sorry, Starcraft II, but Starcraft beat you handily. Nostalgia is a powerful thing. Not as powerful as a Battlecruiser, but still.
It's easy to overlook Counter-Strike today. The landscape is bullet-riddled with team-based, high-budget war simulators. Battlefield and Modern Warfare get all the attention, but those games are for n00bs. Counter-Strike is for l337 h4×0rs. Anyone can hop into one of the yearly triple-A shooters, run off as a lone gun and score some kills. They're mindless. Not only will you die instantly if you try that in CS, you won't have fun. Counter-Strike isn't built for the shoot/die/respawn/repeat mindset. It takes skill and team work to win, like a sport. N00bs spend a lot of time watching games from the grave. If you're willing to stick with it long enough to learn what you're doing, it's very rewarding. No other multiplayer game quite captures the feeling of being the last surviving member of your team and taking out the final opponent in de_dust.
14. Mass Effect 2
It's not easy creating a sequel to a game that received near perfect reviews across the board, but Mass Effect 2 not only lived up to its predecessor, it eclipsed it. It even allowed you to bring over the Commander Shepard you created in the first game. The Shepard that made you proud. The one that sometimes punched a deserving news reporter in the face. Or, if you messed up so badly that you'd rather pretend he never existed, it allowed you to hand craft a new Shepard with trillion dollar plastic surgery. How they can practically rebuild a man from scratch but not fix Joker's limp is still a mystery.
Toplist The Greatest PC Game of All TimeFebruary 24, 2012
You've got a lot of great games to choose from here, people. The MMO you logged 40 hours into over the holiday weekend. That fun educational title that made you hope for an indoor recess. The one you played over 56k and were subsequently disconnected when your mom picked up the phone. What is the greatest PC game of all time? To quote the great Olmec, "The choice is yours and yours alone!"
There is a new king in the land of broken controllers! After receiving almost 1.3 million votes, the most rage-inducing moment has finally been crowned. I'd like to thank the gaming community for the huge turnout, but in reality, it was probably just a couple guys voting a few hundred thousand times each. So this one's for you, Paul and Mike. You guys really hit it out of the park.
15. Not realizing you're fighting enemies that will respawn indefinitely and wasting all your health and ammo trying to finish them all off
You weren't supposed to win, you were supposed to run away. Unfortunately, the game decided to let you figure this out on your own. Since you're a total fake badass and NEVER back down from a fake fight, you didn't figure it out until you'd already unloaded clip after clip into the unending army of minions. Now you're off to the next section of the game barely clinging to life. Annnnnnd it just auto-saved. Beautiful.
14. Running out of inventory slots
Gamers are hoarders by nature. We are obsessive collectors. Even useless items somehow find their way into our inventories, because hey, those can be sold for gold and we like collecting gold; even when we've already got all the best items in the game. Thus, a full inventory is our sworn enemy: You're suddenly faced with the realization that you can't keep all that phat loot you've been picking up along the way. Some particularly cruel games won't even let you drop items, meaning you've got to run back to your item box any time you fill up. I'm looking at you, Resident Evil.
