What nearly nobody is aware of is that we at Pointmmo wish to get offended. That’s why we repeatedly have the editorial group vote on prime lists, which we then get completely labored up about ourselves afterwards. And so it’s once more with the 300 greatest PC games of all time.

That’s due to how our lists are created: Not curated by gray-bearded sages excessive up on the Olympus of know-it-all, however by a democratic election throughout the whole editorial group. And democracy might be fairly wild and complicated.

This results in discussions that proceed into our podcast.

Or slightly, into two podcasts, we cut up our dialogue into two episodes for size causes. Here is the hyperlink to episode 2.

Of course, Micha and Christian discuss store about Ultima 7 and Planescape Torment, that are nonetheless too far behind within the checklist, whereas Géraldine cheers the success of the story adventures (even when the incorrect story journey ended up furthest forward).

We focus on whether or not a game’s significance or its high quality must be the deciding issue for its place on the checklist, and reward newly added indie gems like Dead Cells and Loop Hero – although Christian thinks their fame is fleeting and misses some classics as an alternative.

In quick, we do what we like to do: We philosophize and focus on about good and beloved games. And that is precisely what our lists are for.
