007: NightFire

So many good old memories . Used to play it with my little brother . The game had gotten pretty good review scores back then and I myself was blown away by the game when it was ported by Gearbox on PC . Great gameplay and Cutscenes . Best Bond game in my opinion .

Freelancer

I love this game . It is still one of the best games out there . It is open world Space Sim that features dynamic economy . You can do whatever you want in this big galaxy , go where ever you want . You can land on many planets as well , not only that but the game have excellent storyline which is presented like a Hollywood Movie . Everything about this game makes people excited about Squadron 42 and Star Citizen . Despite being dumbed down by M$ , it is still a masterpiece 10/10 .

Max Payne 2: The Fall of Max Payne

Max was my most favorite character back then . Max Payne 2 was a true PC game like first one , it was also one of the best and most demanding games out there back in 2003 . The game have emotional storyline and fast paced action . Even after 11 years , there is not a single game to feature real John Woo style action . Max Payne 3 is nothing compared to this , which lacks in so many ways including dark storyline . Max Payne 3 story is pretty mediocre . Rockstar should stick with GTA .

Dragon Age: Origins

Old School meets modern gaming in this AAA RPG. Great story, characters and gameplay. One of the best soundtracks in video games.

Divinity: Original Sin

Didn't expect it to be THAT good and I was happy to be proven wrong. Easily a masterpiece. While first few hours may frustrate a lot of people, gamers with patience will be greatly rewarded with an epic adventure that follows once you leave the main town.

Warcraft III: Reign of Chaos

Warcraft 3: Reign of Chaos + The Frozen Throne are one of the best games out there. Great cast of characters, stunning art and powerful moments on top of solid gameplay mechanics make it one of the most memorable experiences around.

World in Conflict

Less Micro, More tactics and Action. Storytelling worthy of a Hollywood movie and a script written by a professional writer who wrote Military based novels in the past. This game has got everything, from amazing visuals to excellent gameplay.

Starcraft II: Wings of Liberty

Sky high production values . The cost of this game is over 100 million dollars , it's the answer to everyone who says PC doesn't have AAA exclusives . Gameplay is great . Cutscenes and Soundtrack are one of the best Blizzard have ever done . May not be as dark and gritty as first game but still a masterpiece .

Thief: The Dark Project

The most immersive game I've ever played and probably the greatest stealth game ever created (except The Metal Age but I prefer the first one). Dark story, amazing characters, and great atmosphere.

The Witcher 2: Assassins of Kings

Best Story telling I've ever seen in any game . Game doesn't hold your hand and plot itself is complex and mature . The game offers 16 different endings . It also pushes PC hardware to it's limits , best looking game in my opinion . Original Game 9/10 Enhanced Edition 9.5/10

Mass Effect 2

Choice and Consequences blew my mind . Ending still gives me goosebumps . One of the best acting in video games .
