the 10 Best PC Games Of The 2000s

Halo: Combat Evolved

Halo is one of the most popular video game franchises.

Far Cry

Far Cry is the poster child for Ubisoft's copy-paste game design, but there was a time when the franchise was truly groundbreaking.

Counter-Strike

The release of Half-Life opened the floodgates for a whole host of computer games from the early 2000s that have been monumental in their own right.

Hitman: Codename 47

Hitman is one of the most iconic stealth gaming franchises of all time.

Max Payne

Speaking of the legendary games that spawned the epic franchise, it would be impossible not to mention one of Remedy's finest titles.

Beyond Good & Evil

Another Ubisoft title that didn't enjoy sales is Beyond Good and Evil.

Deus Ex

Featuring probably the best level design in any game up to that point.

The Sims 2

The Sims was one of the biggest games of its time, but the game was still sorely lacking in many departments.

Half-Life 2

It was only a given that a list talking about PC classics from the early 2000s would mention the Half-Life series at some point.
