Re: Games That Defined PC Gaming of the 20th Century

Well I hope you haven't given up on this one. My innovative and ahead of their time game guides might be of some use here (90s one is still pretty WIP):

https://minirevver.weebly.com/pc-games- ... e-90s.html

It's kind of a huge topic though, might want to split it into pre-DOS, DOS and Windows eras at least. Or roughly align each article with the console generations.

This picture sums up 90s DOS gaming pretty well:

Thanks! I'm still considering this one, but it's not on my publishing schedule or have a draft started yet.

This reminds me of that huge "Worthwhile DOS Games" image. It's also worth noting how each community had different nitpicks on why it's not correct. Doing a reverse image search of the full sized one and browsing the result turned up a few great games I had never heard of.
