Half-Life 2 has been named the greatest PC game of all time in a poll by the readers of PC Gamer.
Fans held Valve's sci-fi FPS adventure as the definitive PC experience thanks to its perfect pacing and compelling protagonist.
It seems that Valve is more than aware of the reasons behind the franchise's success - boss Gabe Newell has said that Gordon Freeman won't be changed or updated for future Half Life editions.
Half-Life 2 was followed by Fallout 3, EVE Online, Deus Ex and Team Fortress 2 to complete the top five in a list of 100.
