The best 12 Computer games in my opinion (and probably in history)

Over the past years, competition has intensified between computers and gaming platforms in order to provide a better environment for playing, and some platforms have sometimes monopolized certain games and made them exclusive to them, but despite that, the computer has remained a key player in the competition. We still have many distinctive computer games that deserve Spending hours on them no matter what style of gaming you prefer.

Even if some people laugh at computer games and do not prefer them, and despite the existence of a number of famous gaming platforms that can be considered an alternative in many cases, playing on the PC brings many a special pleasure, and irreplaceable pleasure sometimes, especially in some games. That includes the use of weapons.
