There a handful of timeless shooters that deserve the title over Crysis.

Half - Life
Counterstrike
Deus Ex
Doom
Duke Nukem
Quake 1 and 2
Jedi Knight

I said timeless, not "good for its time."

Crysis is not timeless. Admittedly, it still holds up really well.

The most timeless PC game I've found is probably games like Diablo, Heroes of Might and Magic, Warcraft. Maybe some Jagged Alliance.

I'd add HL2 to this list as well. I think a lot of people forget it was pretty revolutionary in 2004 when it came out. I remember people going ape s*** you could throw grenades back at people, and the whole physics engine was the most advanced at the time.

Well Crysis ten years from now will be known for setting standards graphically for it's time but that's all it has going for it really and nothing else stands out. Counterstrike is still played recently as much as it was back in the day and Half Life, Doom, Quake were revolutionary for the genre and people still play them and recognize these older games.

Agreed.

Also, any lucasarts adventure game ever made should be considered a timeless classic as well as far as I am concerned.

+ Starcraft and Counter Strike imho.

I would give this distinction to Solitaire and The Oregon Trail.


Actually, Oregon Trail kind of ticks me off these days. heh I know random bad events are more realistic (Jimbo died of dysentery) since a ton of people really did die on the Oregon Trail, but it's still an obnoxious game to me now. It's like trying to read a "pick your own adventure" book, except your irritating little brother keeps jumping around and randomly sticking a page in your face that says "You died!"

Yeah, a game that's only draw is visuals is timeless.

Not some of the GOATs like Planescape Torment, Fallout 2, Deus Ex, Half Life 2 and Wasteland.
