    Probably a variant of the Command and Conquer series would be my top, especially if I could get the mods working again (for Generals they were amazing). Not found many newer games to hook me quite the same.

    Another vote for C&C here.

    Another RTS I put a lot of hours in to with my friends was Total Annihilation. The genocidal little robots were so cute!

    Football/Championship Manager could easily kill a few months!

    Half Life.

    And finally, 17 years after release i'm still playing Diablo 2.

    AOE 2
    Ocarina of Time
    Shogun Total War
    Civ V
    Theme Hospital
    Witcher 3
    Starcraft II
    GTA V
    Goldeneye
    Breath of the wild


    Actually these are just my favourite games. I wouldn't take them in the scenario you've described as I've already played them to death!

    Theme Hospital was a cracking game!


    I can't say the top 10 of all time as I'm a console gamer so I have probably missed a lot of PC games but I have been a PC gamer twice and I'd say my personal favourite 10 from those times are...


    GTA III
    GTA Vice City
    GTA San Andreas

    Lord Of The Rings: Return Of The King
    The Sims
    The Sims 2
    Zoo Tycoon
    Civ II
    Hover
    (Sean O'Connor's) Critical Mass

    I think you'll have people arguing until the cows come home on this one! My personal top 10 in no particular order (well that came most easily to mind anyway!)...


    Transport Tycoon
    Civilisation
    Half-Life / Counter strike
    Doom
    MS Flight Simulator
    Max Payne
    Commandos
    Hidden and Dangerous
    C&C series (Red Alert was my fave)
    GTA series


    Edit: Resident Evil, how did I forget the original resident Evil?!?!


    To my point, there are just sooo many and I think it is likely to be a generational thing

    1= Deus Ex / Deus Ex: HR (I've played the series every October since release, except Mankind Divided because I hated it with a passion. It's something I originally did with my dad back in 2000, and I can't separate these two)
    2. Fallout 2
    3. System Shock 2
    4. Fallout: NV
    5. Max Payne 2
    6. Civilization 4
    7. Half Life 2
    8. Diablo
    9. Supreme Commander 2
    10. Total War: Shogun 2

    C&C without doubt, the Decade pack for 5.99 is a steal

    I've played Age of Empires everyday of my life (discounting holidays abroad, but have contemplated a laptop for the sole purpose) since 1998. Currently enjoying the definitive edition for Win 10 that came out this year, in fact I bought a new win 10 machine (ten year old Vista previously) so I could play it. I dont need nine more games, I didn't even realise there were other games available, surely not?

    This age of empires game you're playing is it the original game from 1998 or is it an updated version? How can you play it on Windows 10 wouldn't a game that old need to be played on an operating system from that era?

    Hence the definitive edition for win 10 that came out this year. I may have mentioned it.
