Modern computer games can hardly be called durable. Most projects are completed once and postponed until better times. But some games were released decades ago and are still relevant today.

The Sims 3

The Sims 3 is an old computer game created by The Sims Studio. Even though the project was released in 2009, it retains its relevance. The main feature is the numerous additions that expand the gameplay.

One of the innovations is the introduction of gambling. The developers have allowed players to have fun in Hit'em Harder Blackjack Table and Triple Riches Slots O'Jackpots Slot Machine.

The games are similar to those available at a casino. For example, in Triple Riches Slots O'Jackpots Slot Machine, as in the 8 lucky charms slot machine, you need to collect a specific combination on the screen to collect your winnings.

The Sims 3 was the first game to give players access to a massive open world. With this project, you have almost unlimited creative possibilities – customize characters, build houses, create unique interiors, and much more.

Left 4 Dead 2

Left 4 Dead 2 is a zombie game that has set high standards for the gaming industry. Finding another project that has been played for more than 9 years is difficult. It was released on November 17, 2009, by Valve. It made the zombie first-person shooter genre famous.

A feature of the old project was the support for the possibility of dynamic adjustment of complexity. The AI Director 2.0 feature has dramatically increased the enjoyment of the game. Not a single modern project has offered such a thing.

Grand Theft Auto V

The entire GTA series was popular with players, but the part of Grand Theft Auto V took the cult's place. Currently, the user base of this project is estimated at a million active players.

The game can be called old. Despite this, the developers have done everything possible to make it available on the new generation of PS5 and Xbox Series X consoles. The new part of the game will have to work very hard to surpass its old predecessor.


The Warframe does not have a multimillion-dollar army of fans, but this is one project that is still being updated and expanded. The game itself was released on computers on March 25, 2013. And a few months ago, the Corpus Proxima update was released.

On average, about 47,000 people worldwide launch the old game per month. This suggests that Warframe is still relevant to the players.

Dota 2

The number of active players per month averages 440 thousand people. Interestingly, this is the third game in our ranking that Valve developed. We can conclude that the developer releases worthwhile projects valued for years.

In many ways, the game's popularity is because it hosts the largest eSports tournaments worldwide.

Team Fortress 2

The multiplayer computer shooter Team Fortress 2 was released on computers on October 10, 2007. This project is more years old than the average Fortnite player. Here, the players were offered unusual and fun gameplay.

Over the past month, more than 120,000 people have participated in the battles in Team Fortress 2. These are astonishing numbers, considering how long ago the game was released.

Hearthstone is an old card game tied to the Warcraft universe and uses many of the franchise's signature elements. The game was initially released for PC in 2014. But later, the developers decided to port it to mobile devices.

Hearthstone's active user base has dwindled significantly in the past year. But until now, the average number of players per month remains at 2.5 million people.

World of Warcraft

The popularity of the World of Warcraft project, which was released in 2004, can be explained by the constantly released patches, updates, and additions. At least 5 million people enter the game every month.

Immediately after the launch, the old game formed a massive army of fans; critics also highly appreciated it. Physical and digital copies were actively sold around the world.

In 2010, the game reached a peak of 12 million subscribers; by 2014, this figure had increased to 100 million people.


These old computer games at one time brought specific innovations to the sphere. They have won numerous fans from all over the world. Even despite the outdated graphics, they remain relevant to the players.
