Since there seem to be a plethora of these threads for PS3 and 360 in particular, I thought I'd make my own for the PC. List yours! I'll restrict my list to only the last 3-4 years, just because it gets unwieldy to handle so many games if you go back too far. You are not obliged to follow that restriction. Remember, these are PC exclusives!

1) Company of Heroes
2) Portal
3) Team Fortress II
4) Civilization IV

5) Company of Heroes

Not PC exclusive, dude.

My favourites (of all time) are the Sims series (main series is PC exclusive) and Roller Coaster Tycoon series.

Are you counting Macs, or did Civ IV come out on a console?

I'm not sure I understand how these rules work. Why can Gears be listed as a 360 exclusive, but it cannot (as an example, even though I don't like that particular game) work as a PC exclusive? How do the rules work?

 Technically, the site imposed a rule where Gears is not an "exclusive."  A "console exclusive" yes, but not an "exclusive."

 

Yeah.

So isn't it also a PC exclusive? Or is there some reason that it doesn't work both ways? Seems silly that a game can be considered a "console exclusive" -- even though it's on PC -- while the exact same game isn't considered a PC exclusive, even though it's on 360.

@Bod
The forum rules lay out the official rules for exclusive naming. Silly as it seems it was apparently necessary.

Masters of Orion 2, World of Warcraft, Diablo 2, and Civ 2 would round it out for me. Sadly most recent PC games have really disappointed me. Blizzard releasing non-MMO games is certainly going to help this. Portal 2 is one of my most anticipated games right now. When Starcraft 2 actually releases it will jump onto the list, but I don't think its right to add a beta.

I neither make nor enforce the rules; I'm just stating them.

Thinking about it, I guess it's a PC exclusive?  Which makes pretty much every PC game from the past twenty years (at least) a PC exclusive?  There's a mind-bender.

I dunno.



Can't rank them.

Deus Ex

X-COM (seriously, both of these after all these years are still top 5)

Civ 4 (soon to be Civ 5)

UT2004

Warcraft 3 (I wish I could sub this with SC2, but in its current form SC2 is just horrible, mostly cause of B.net 2.0)

I really really wanted to put Diablo 2 in there, however I can't get it over Deus Ex. If you absolutely demand a brand new game  list, put these in for DE and XCOM:

Potal

World of Goo



Just to make sure I'm clear -- I simply assumed the rules were enforced uniformly. I specifically emphasized the term "PC Exclusive" because those are the rules for 360 games (and the occassional PS3 game). As long as you make it clear it's a console exclusive, you're fine. I assumed the same was true for the PC.

If not... again, it seems unfair and unreasonable that 360/PC games can be claimed as "Console Exclusive" but not "PC Exclusive."

lol come on... Portal and TF2 aren't PC exclusive..

So u have 2 games on ur list... that's all u could come up with?


They might as well be.



The one PC exclusive I really love is Anno 1602 a.d., I could play that game forever.



Civ series

Crysis

Warcraft 3

UT/UT2004

Baldurs Gate 2



Team Fortress 2 should be considered exclusive for the sheer amount of free extra content, fixed glitches and the increased game-changing player count. Team Fortress 2.5

Supreme Commander is another game that should be considered exclusive because it's unplayable on the 360.
