The only games on this list you're actually right about are Portal 2 and The Witness. Sure games like Witcher 3 are neat and all but "newcomers" won't be able to fucking play it. Why? Because if they're just trying out PC, they're not gonna spend 1,000 fucking dollars on something they're not sure they'll like. The ACTUAL best PC games are things like CS:GO, TF2 (kind of), or just any FPS because that's the fucking beauty of using a mouse and keyboard is the unbelievable accuracy one can have. RTS games are becoming less and less popular to make because no one fucking wants them, and those that do know that the chance of a new RTS coming out that is actually good is very slim.

Before watching this, I'm just gonna take a quick guess as to what's inside. I'm guessing all 12 slots are occupied by Undertale with Witcher 3 as an honorable mention.

For such a difficult topic, you did really well in my opinion. I can agree with most of the games on the list!

The 12 Best Games For PC - in a "console-thinking-man-opinion" - there are no pc exclusives, no first person shooters, no damn good classical rpg`s. Final Fantasy? - Are you mad? Play it on your cellphone Kotaku. Where is Fallout 1-2? Where are PC-only playable FPS games such as QuakeLive or Unreal Tournament? You just f*cked up everything, Kotaku, your opinion is bullshit.

1) Witcher III is *NOT* a PC game. It was developed for the consoles and ported to the PC. In fact it was near enough drop ported. The assets used are the same in both versions. Patches made it slightly better but it is still not a PC game and it never will be. 2) Metal Gear Solid 5 is *NOT* a PC game. It's a drop port of a console game. See above...

Could you imagine Witcher 3 being only for consoles ? How do you know it was developed for consoles and also that 30 fps on consoles makes me only play console exclusives.

Mount and Blade: Warband? No? Okay...

No accounting for taste and all that, but I feel like you've missed a lot of incredible experiences because you've focused on newer games. Undertale is probably my all time favourite game, but there is no way it should be on this list because it hasn't had time to age and be considered from a long term perspective. Half-Life was a game that for me still has better combat than most modern releases and I first played it in 2010, ages after it was released (hell ages after it's sequels were released too). That sort of long-term quality is something I find you can't really judge from such recent releases. Not that I think you should necessarily put HL1 in the list, but don't jam in so many new games when there are a wealth of incredible games that most new developments can't touch (just ask the rabid fans of the likes of System Shock 2 or Deus Ex who frequently maintain nothing better has come out since).

is final fantasy 14 realm reborn a subcription or buy to play?
Nick D. Jones (2 years ago)
final fantasy XIV, I've come to hate that game.
Nick D. Jones (2 years ago)
Repetitive, I've grown tired of running dungeons for freaking tomes just to have another patch to replace them. Pvp is kinda "eh". I can't really control the world around me.End game can be fun with the right people if you have the time to find the right people. I'm having fun just talking to people rather than do anything else

It's basically a turned based list. meh, I'm not living in the 90's anymore.

Where is big rigs?
aragon (2 years ago)
okay, I already know people are pissed that a lot of these games are not just pc, and while they are right, some of these games, The Witcher 3, Fallout 3, Skyrim are quintessential. But how on earth did they gloss over CSGO or Rocket league
João Serra (2 years ago)
internet said these are the best! must be true!

What about Depression Quest? Kappa
The 12 best games for PC? Portal 2 VS Half Life 2? _I smell no bias here..._

I would definitely NOT recommend Kentucky Route Zero any sooner than I would A Song of Fire and Ice. If you feel like torturing yourself with the first glimpse of a cool world and story that you know will probably never be finished go for it. But KRZ is 3/5 episodes in with no sign of them ever finishing the story, so until they make SOME progress on Ep 4 (been 2-3 years with no sign of any work being done) I'd give it a pass for now.
CynicalCharlie (2 years ago)
This is actually a pretty good list - I'm impressed
Noah Milani (2 years ago)
What about Skyrim with mods?
best viewer (2 years ago)
I would have just accepted any Bethesda Game
gabrocki (2 years ago)
While the title is a little misleading, I agree that these 12 games are pretty fucking good. Well, the ones I played were, that is.

Pc exclusive list please. I don't wanna hear about a game I can play on my ps4 :(
Nikolai Dolbilov (2 years ago)
Come on no Fallout 2? Infact there's nothing released before 2010! It's like pc gaming dud not exist back then.

"The games on this list are all great PC games. But of all the platforms in our collection of The Bests, the PC has been around the longest and therefore has the largest back catalogue. There are decades of fantastic PC games to choose from, and if you own a PC you’d be remiss if you didn’t go through the classics and play the best ones. Thankfully, we’ve got two lists to help you out. In 2013 our readers helped us make an exhaustive megalist of the best classic PC games of all time. Then in 2015, we made our own list of the 24 best classic PC games." Go to the Article (link in description) if you want to see these lists
There may be some uh... hate for that undertale spoiler... even though its the internet so everyone knows everything about this game already.
JJW001 (2 years ago)
Ouch I feel pretty old now. So many classic PC games are no longer worth playing :'(
No. Classics are always worth playing. Nobody is going to tell me that Baldur's Gate 2 or San Andreas isn't worth playing anymore 'cause that's simply not true!
Åge Sedö (2 years ago)
Also Rocket League, Team Fortress 2, Besiege, scrap mechanic etc

"Our 12 Best Games For PC"**
Francoberry (2 years ago)
It would be cool if these lists showed only exclusives to PC - Would allow people to see what platform they would prefer
The King of Diddling (1 year ago)
Or at least let them see how much better FPS games are on PC.
Testcat (2 years ago)
all of these together cost like 500€
sparrow2202 (2 years ago)
The witness has nothing to do here...Also, undertale is soooo overrated
Yami No Yuusha (2 years ago)
+sparrow2202 true but i do agree with them on xcom 2 :D
Mush Rush (2 years ago)
good list, can't argue with any. I would have some over some but it doesn't matter. good list.
The Hardstyle Musicz (2 years ago)
It's a matter of personal opinion but I believe Rocket League should be on this list. It's one of the most addicting games ever.
Said Torres (2 years ago)
+Hayden Merrell Description reads:"Our list of the 12 best games for PC as of February 25, 2016" I believe it is about being some of the best games for PC and Rocket League while being extremely fun does not deserve to be on that list. However i'll admit that some of the games on the last aren't that good.
Said Torres (2 years ago)
+TheHardstyleMusicz It's a fun game but it is very far from being one of the best games ever made.

Fixed the typo: "The 12 Newest Games for PC"

+Ryan Hamann I would'nt say that Starcraft II is new, but yes. This video sucks ass.
