"It's the granddaddy of all consoles. It defines gaming culture. We use our computers to socialize, to communicate, to read news and troll forums. We e-mail, we IM, and despite the systems in our living rooms, a good many of us still game on our computers, too. Because let's face it: there's no better place to play the most hardware-frying games or reminisce about old times than the PC.

Add them to recent history's most popular titles, and you've got this list: our take on today's top 32 must-own PC games."
