Finding and ranking the best PC games is no easy task. There are so many top-quality games that are available on the PC. In order to make it slightly easier, we have decided to stick to relatively newer games and have tried to incorporate as many different genres as possible. Of course, there are tons of other games that arguably deserve to be on this list, but you definitely won’t go wrong with these. Do note that these are not in any particular order. Although the prices of the products mentioned in the list given below have been updated as of 16th Jan 2021, the list itself may have changed since it was last published due to the launch of new products in the market since then.
The Witcher 3 is considered to be one of the finest RPGs in gaming and that’s for a very good reason. The game offers gorgeous visuals as well as an engrossing story. Tying everything together is tight combat and excellent gameplay mechanics. Add to this the middle age setting that combines swords and sorcery, and you have a recipe for awesomeness.
The Grand Theft Auto series is a legend in gaming and it’s games have usually set high standards. It’s latest game, Grand Theft Auto V is no different, offering a huge map as well as a wide variety of gameplay mechanics that range from driving, shooting and flying. This time around, the game offers three sets of protagonists. There is also a new online mode that lets players wreck havoc even after they are done with the main storyline.
Like it’s GTA brethren, Red Dead Redemption 2 offers a huge open world with loads of things to do. It also offers a deep and engaging narrative about, family, friends, betrayal and of course, redemption. Further, the gameplay is slick and graphics are among the best available right now. It is the ultimate ‘cowboy simulator’.
Bethesda is known for its massive RPG’s and Elder Scrolls V: Skyim took things to a whole new level. The game offers a fantastic world that is filled with elves, magicians and dragons. However, the huge map is filled with tons of things to discover and side quests to complete. So much so that you’ll most probably end up getting side-tracked when playing the game.
Doom: Eternal takes the insane FPS action of Doom (2016) and cranks the craziness up a notch. The game is as action packs as before, but this time around, it offers better traversal mechanics as well as tweaks gameplay. Not to mention the heavy metal soundtrack that suits the game perfectly.
Forza Horizon 4 is a gorgeous racing game that is set in a fictitious version of Great Britain. The game offers swathes of beautiful countryside compared with the narrow, twisting roads of cities to offer a mixed gameplay. New to the series is seasons which change the gameplay a bit. So in winter, the track is covered in snow, making for a tricker driving experience.
Assassin’s Creed: Odyssey continues the title’s tradition of suing unique settings for their games. This time around, the game is set in Ancient Greece. As one has come to expect from the series, the gameplay revolves a lot around parkour and fighting. However, there is also a das of RPG elements added to spice up gameplay.
Minecraft took the world by storm. It offered a unique retro pixelated art-style that lent it immense charm. Not only that, but the game was centered around a rich crafting system that is still considered to me one of the best. It’s non-linear-story and family-friendly gameplay also made it a hit among kids.
Call of Duty: Warzone is a free game from Activision that combines the battle royale genre with tight gunplay that the series is known for. Unlike most of its contemporaries, the game offers 150 players in total divided into teams of three players. The game offers cross-platform compatibility between PC, Xbox One and PS5 so you can team up with your buddies if you want.
Ori and the Will of the Wisps is a sequel to the equally fantastic Ori and the Blind Forests. This platformer offers gorgeous visuals that wouldn’t look to out of place on a canvas. However, a platformer is only as good as its controls and thankfully the game delivers on that aspect. The icing on the cake is the beautiful soundtrack.
The newest installment of Microsoft Flight Simulator not only looks great, but is also filled with rich details. Sure, it may not be as exciting as the latest FPS game. But sometimes, it's a good idea to take a step back and take in the visual spectacle of flying over the Himalayas.
Undertale may not look as detailed as your average AAA title, but more than makes up for it in story and gameplay. This little indie smash hit took the world by story and the best way to find out why is to play it for your self.
Age of Empires II has long been known as one of the greatest Real-Time Strategy games ever made. The definitive edition brings back the classic gameplay along with a few graphical tweaks to bring it up to par. This includes brand-new destruction animation, new civilisations and more.
It's a new Half Life game... in VR. What else do you need to know?
