You’re an avid gamer and, from the moment you have free time, you want to know which are the best PC games ever, so you can recover some of the top titles you’ve missed over the last few years.
Well, if that’s the case, let me tell you, it’s a little hard to pinpoint in black and white which is the best PC game ever. That means talking about the best titles from the birth of video games (we’re talking about the 1950s) to this day.
Besides, even if we really want to rank the best videogame titles, it’s impossible to take into account what personal taste is. Some like action video games, some like adventure, some like isometrics, and some prefer first-person video games. In short, the videogame landscape is vast and everyone deserves to have their own preferences.
So what I’m going to propose to you in this guide is a list of titles that, over the last few years, have universally distinguished themselves because of their overwhelmingly positive reviews from the public and critics alike.
Hence they are “cult” video games and I am sure that a gamer like you will surely appreciate them. So are you ready to get started? As always, I wish you a good read and, for that matter, a good time too.
The games are grouped below by genre. If you still have doubts about which title to buy, we are waiting for you in the comments section at the end of the article or on our Facebook group.
What are the best PC games?
The comment space is obviously open to any suggestions or comments: we are pleased to discuss with you which titles are best suited to your tastes. But now we leave you with our list of the best PC games divided by genre. We will update this list every month with the best news.
Best PC Action Games
The action games category includes a large pool of titles, including third-person action, action RPGs, shooters (first and third person) and more. Here is a rundown of PC titles!
At its core are Destiny-style online Action RPG mechanics and an extraterrestrial sci-fi setting. On PC, it can count on NVIDIA’s DLSS which significantly improves its performance even in 2K or 4K. The graphic effects are even more spectacular than usual. We could describe it as a cover-based online shooter, but that would be an understatement.
2. HITMAN III
An unmissable game in the library of Agent 47 adventures fans. It synchronizes with the progress and maps of HITMAN and HITMAN II (the latest remakes in the series), and has a very high degree of replayability given the many approaches to the levels. The mechanics are the same: Agent 47 must infiltrate super-safe places with a clear target in mind, almost always a target to finish.
3. EVERSPACE 2
Two big premises. The first: it is an Action RPG, not pure action therefore. The second: it is an early access. Consequently, the game is not complete and may cancel your saves (with prior notice of course). But if you want to support the work of the developers, give them a chance. It has a lot of in-game content to offer: a life-filled universe to explore, immersive combat, a storyline and lots of elements to unlock.
By many (users and press) it was elected among the best games of 2020. It is a sort of cross between a hack and slash and a rogue-like characterized by a classic isometric view. It was developed by the software house Supergiant Games, already famous for Bastion and Transistor. It also costs the right amount, and promises several dozen hours of gameplay. Give it a chance!
5. Assasssin’s Creed Valhalla
The new chapter of the famous Ubisoft Action saga moves to Norse territory and England, when the Viking civilization was at the height of its power. The game is nothing short of huge, the graphics sector knows how to give joys (and pains) and the story fits into the plot of the saga right away. What is certain is that the game structure remains similar to that of its two predecessors.
6. Mafia Definitive Edition
Mafia Definitive Edition is a great remake, with a “unique” major flaw. Historical fans of the first chapter will not find the original music, the voice acting itself and will notice some small changes in the story. If you can overlook these details, the road is literally downhill. The combat system has been revisited and the graphics engine is nothing short of splendid.
7. Star Wars Squadrons
It is not really an action game, more like an action simulator with an arcade vein. In any case, it is on PC that the latest EA game gives its best. The short but intense campaign is just the prelude to multiplayer mode. And on PC it is possible to play it in virtual reality. We assure you that it is nothing short of impressive to dive into the cockpit of an X-Wing or a Tie Fighter!
8. Marvel’s Avengers
Lovers of action games and Marvel superheroes will hardly be able to stay away from him. And all in all, the campaign and game structure is also quite successful. Longevity on the other hand is not that high, but there are several extra activities to carry out even at the end of the story. Graphically, in certain situations, it is really at the top.
PC Release Games
The games that come out for PC are, as usual, enough. There are no real exclusives as in the consoles, but there are still several titles that, in part, for the genre that belong to (Strategy, RPG), in part for the objective they are directed, only reach PC. To find out which games come to PC in the coming months, you just have to follow ours.
