Without these awesome PC games, we would have never fallen in love with PC gaming!

PC gaming is home to countless classics – games so good our experiences with them will probably be included in our dying thoughts. But even among the greats, there are those that stand out as games so innovative and well-made that they’re responsible for getting us into PC gaming in the first place.

Here we present you the 15 Awesome PC Games That Made Us Love PC Gaming – without which we would have never become the PC gamers that we are now.

Let’s start with entry number…

15. Doom

Doom01

Every imp deserves at least two bullet holes in their face

If one game was responsible for single-handedly converting millions of console gamers into devoted PC gamers, it would have to be 1993’s Doom. Doom was so new, so edgy, and so explosive that even people who didn’t know PC gaming existed started picking up mouse and keyboard just to join in on the slaughter.

Doom02

Big, mean, and loaded!

The concept of the game is simple. Scientists inadvertently open a portal to hell. Hell’s minions pour into the mortal world and quickly turn humans into barbecue. Enter Doomguy – your unnamed, mute space marine, a man with a BFG and a whole lot of demons to kill. The result? A splatterfest unlike anything seen in the gaming industry prior.

Doom’s influence was so great that it transformed the first-person shooter into an industry capable of generating billions of dollars. Today, the genre is among the most popular, played by everyone from your grandfather to that snot-nosed kid next door. How’s that for a lasting legacy?

Doom03

Doom04

Hell's throwing everything but the kitchen sink at you
