Every few years, someone says that PC gaming is dying, and every time, the reports of its death are greatly exaggerated. PC gaming has been with us for many years, and shows no signs of going anywhere. If you're a PC gamer, you're in luck, because you can always go back and play classic games, and most of them will still work. That's good news, because the history of PC gaming is littered with amazing titles. If you want to play all the greats, you'll need a lot of time, but these eight are a great place to start.

Age Of Empires II: Age Of Kings

First released in 1999, Age Of Empires II: Age Of Kings was a real-time strategy game set in the Middle Ages. Players chose a civilization (all based on real-world civilizations), build a base, gather resources, and eventually try to take out their foes. You could advance through four stages, unlocking new units, buildings, and technology as you went. It also offered a single-player campaign that was based on historical events, like Genghis Khan's Mongols invading Eurasia. Most importantly, it set a standard that RTS titles still adhere to. Much of its gameplay can still be seen in games today. A HD version of the game was released to Steam in 2013.
