This top 50 includes games published for many platforms:

  • every PC platform since the dawn of desktop computers: from popular systems (Microsoft Windows, Macintosh, Linux) to lesser known ones (Solaris, FreeBSD, BeOS)
  • old microcomputers: Commodore 64, Spectrum, etc.
  • mobile platform: mainly Android and iOS
  • a few popular consoles (and even old ones): Xbox, Nintendo, PlayStation

To be part of the top 50, a single game must have been voted at least three times. Use the button bar to filter the list by genre.
