Default Let's talk PC gaming

I can't be the only one here who plays PC games as much as IOS games, so I thought it would be nice to have a thread to discuss PC games, the newest releases, cool upcoming games, interesting news, etc.

I played Far Cry, it came bundled with my graphics card when i built my custom PC years ago. Bought a couple of games here and there.. spider-man 3, resident evil 4, GTA San Andreas. But that's it really. But my favourite game on PC ever is the fan made Streets of Rage: Remake. Hope it gets ported to iPhone

I just beat Unepic (indie metroidvania) and had a lot of fun with it. Rogue Legacy was good but got old quick. Playing some Heroes of Might & Magic III right now. I tried to get into Hitman Absolution but couldn't (yet) and am hooing to give the new Tomb Raider a whirl. F.E.A.R. is a lot of fun.

I prefer DRM-free stuff through GOG than Steam.

9+ years of WoW, and lots of steam games.

Sadly, many games I loved back then, are not nearly as fun today, on Steam.

Some of my favorite PC games ever...

1. Masters of Orion
2. Civ 2
3. Capitalism
4. The Gold Box D and D games.... I really loved those.
5. Gateway to Apshai
6. The original Bard's Tale..... But today I can't even stand playing it
7. Jagged Alliance2
8. Evil Genius
9. Any good 4x game, really
10. I foget ;2 name, but there is a business sim on Steam, and I loved it.

I don't have a very powerful machine, but have gotten back into the PC gaming scene thanks to OnLive and their CloudLift service that will stream certain Steam games from their servers. Been playing a lot of Saints Row IV and Batman: Arkham Origins. Batman: AO has a pretty fun multiplayer mode, too.

GOG is mostly old school games? I prefer Humble and Steam. Actually there are quite a few DRM-free games on Steam

If you like Rogue Legacy, you've probably played Spelunky, right? I love roguelikes; if you like those two, definitely check out Towerclimb and Catacomb Kids.

Wait, you can play games that aren't League of Legends on your PC?

Learn something new every day.

I'm personally a big fan of strategy games and 4x games in general, I tend to play Space Empires IV Gold and Distant Worlds a lot. I'm pretty much limited to those couple until I buy a new PC unfortunately.

Although I have been thinking about buying a new laptop as the trackpad died on my old one a few days ago I might even go and have a look at what's available this week sometime.
