I'm really surprised that no one ever mentioned Half-Life or Half-Life 2. That's easily one of the best video games in gaming history.

Here are like my top 10 PC Games (plus the reasons why I love them is on spoilers):

1. Half-Life/Half-Life 2



2. Portal



3. Team Fortress 2



4. Left 4 Dead 2



5. The Stanley Parable



6. Fallout 1/New Vegas/3



7. Braid



8. Limbo



9. DOTA 2



10. Loadout!

This is all dependent on your laptop. If you intend to game, you shouldn't have been looking at a laptop in the first place unless you've invested in a gaming laptop which may well be a waste of money as you can build a great PC for only about $1,500 to $2,000 - depending on what you're willing to spend of course.

I'd also recommend using a mouse as the trackpad isn't going to be very helpful in some games.

My top 3 PC games would probably be
Diablo 2
Baldur's Gate 2
CS:GO
(sneaking in a 4th) TES: Morrowind

Those are based on my own preferences. There are plenty I could list.

You can build a great PC for 700 dollars. You don't need to overspend. 1000 or over is just overkill for extremists.

You're not wrong there, you can indeed build one for less than $1,000. Personally, my maximum - when estimating costs - is $1,500 and I would not overstep that. It's better to have saved enough money on the side to get the job done quickly than to be short on money and drag out the process.

However, the experience and pricing is unique for everyone. The price is dependent on availability in said location and extras that individuals may want to invest in like anti-virus protection, a keyboard, a gaming mouse dependent on their style, a mouse pad, a monitor
(or monitors) and so on.

Each to their own.
