>Firstly, update the list at the end of the year. (so exited for the new games btw) >Secondly, merging player and reviewer scores is a very bad idea, they are separate for a reason. >And thirdly, don't even rank them by these scores, because they're all very similar, popular games have more haters (this is why this list is pretty much all indie), and older games have scores largely based on standards from the time of their release. Also, please put the full, ordered list of the games in the description (because I doubt people would actually watch the whole thing in it's current state).

Top 50 indie Games* This list was straight garbage. Games are supposed to be evolving tf. I don't want to play a stupid 2d, stick figure, side scrolling, text based (Unless it's like Divinity sin or Pillars of Eternity) game. Jesus
Fortnite
Harp9290 (30 days ago)
Where is undertake. Undertale is a masterpiece of a game and the characters and soundtrack hit me hard and made me grow passion for the game. And where is csgo a massive and great shooter that relied on skill and is a big esports player and is played by millions. And terraria which was an amazing game with a big world full of fun, exploring and a variety of challenging bosses and great mobs and ores. These games I had great memories and I think these games should have least featured in the top 5
Luboš Kadeřábek (5 days ago)
The list is just ranked by scores, it sucks. Btw I agree with Terraria (200+ h), but CS:GO is popular because it's multiplayer and quite catchy, it's not that awesome. You wouldn't put Fortnite here either.

hey can u guys help me to find my childhood pc game? I literary didnt know the name of the game, this game is usually play by my cousin and i never get a chance to play it since i was little. all i know is the gameplay is hide and seek and it was 2d not 3d game. the main character that we played is criminal (i think) we came to only 1 house that lived by 1 guy, the idea is (based on what i could recall) we could place a trap to annoy that guy and we also could hide on several rooms and decoration or curtains. the first time i saw this game was 10 or 12 yrs ago. if anyone of u could help to find whats the name of the game i will be verry very appreciate it, thanks before :)

It's unreal that a game like Stardew Valley can be considered a good game at all, much less in the top 20 games from '15 to present. Just shows how we're in the Pokemon, effeminate, pussified male era, and that if there's ever a draft implemented again in the U.S., we're fucked, just not as bad as those effeminate little bitches that will be forced to serve. This list is either A. beyond garbage, B. a true telling of how fucked the modern male is, or C. that PC gaming as a demographic is dying, or at the very least, not being catered to. Personally I think it's all of the above. Oh yeah, and fuck you if you're triggered by this cupcake, butch up!

Wow... Minecraft in a better place than Half-Life 2. In Half-life 2 you have a storyline, characters, weapons, different locations, vehicles, mods, great reviews, a purpose, and in Minecraft you have what? Only one character, no purpose, pixelated weapons, toxic community, no storyline, only some biomes nothing interesting, it may have good mods, but i would put it at 40 in the list

Haters, if you wanna hate it.. so what? These lists is so perfect.. even though my opinion goes to The Witcher 3, but, i know that it's not No.1 most played, but, last i heard, it became no.2 now.if i'm not wrong.. Great video.. Perfect lists..
Joseph Zothanpuia (2 months ago)
Geralt Of Rivia is the best.. But, i recommend you to not play before other they "so called" great games., because after you finish playing The Witcher 3, you'd prefer to read book instead.

Am I weird? I didnt really like Bioshock infinite. I think I did it too fast so I didnt really understand story and just rush through this game.
whatoplay (2 months ago)
Mmhm. Looking back, Bioshock 1 did have a more darker feel to it than Bioshock Infinite. We're happy to hear about your fondness of this game. You're welcome, and thanks for the view :)
FreshuPL ;3 (2 months ago)
Wow this video has almost 1 year and you even type answers. I remember when I was kid and I was playing Bioshock 1. It is better for me because it was even a bit scary and I prefer that dark climate instead of some flying cities :D. Anyway Thanks for an answer. :)
whatoplay (2 months ago)
Nay, you can have your own opinions. The game has a really amazing story, albeit a bit confusing with all the time travelling that is happening in the game.
