Best PC Games

So I've been slowly converting my friends to PC gamers (thank you GTX 750 TI) and the question they all ask me is "what games should I get first". I want to compile a list of great PC games for the newborn PC gamer. This isn't just PC exclusives, things like Titanfall can go in this list. So far I have this:




Black Mesa Source

Elite: Dangerous

Ideally they should push the hardware, be lots of fun, not overly complex (remember these are people who were just console gamers) and have lots of polish. Remember, it doesn't need to be an exclusive.

  1. The Witcher (The First one and the second one if the 750ti can handle the second one)
  2. Speedrunners [I play this with friends] (It's FUN AS FUCK)
  3. Killing Floor [Also a Fun game to play with friends]
  4. Sniper Elite: Nazi Zombie Army (1&2) [Fun game to play with friends]
  5. Tomb Raider (Reboot)
  6. Deus Ex: Human Revolution
  7. Mirror's Edge (Gotta Enjoy those GRAPHICS)
  8. Crysis 1
  9. Borderlands
  10. Vampire: The Masquerade - Bloodlines

These are fun games I would recommend for the new PC gamer. 

Mhh... fun, nice looking pc games? Far cry3 and blood dragon, just cause 2, orcs must die 1+2, Borderlands games, New Batman games, Chivalry medieval warfare, red fraction guerilla, witcher 2 (a bit unnecessarily complicated menu though), bioshock games

Bioshock Infinite

Mount&Blade: Warband

Duke Nukem 3D (requires a DOS emulator, Is old but still really fun) -might want to save that until they get use to their PCs.

GoldenEye Source

Saints Row 3

Half Life 2 + ep1,2


As well as what Kat and Rolling Potatoe said

Depending on the age or person Minecraft? I think there are many aspects to the game that compliments to a lot of sides of people. Such as redstone to make contraptions, creative builder in a pixalated way, survivalist, build and thrive, exploration. If this doesn't cut it there's always going on servers and playing factions, kitpvp, survival games like Hunger Games, and much much more. Then you can download worlds that either pieces of artwork, survivalist maps like Vech's Super Hostile maps, and the other ones that take you on a game ride.

Saw Game Grumps play it on YT, which is really fun, is Shovel Knight.

Skyrims fun. Going get it soon.

Day Z is a broken game, but close to realistic zombie apcolapse. 

An oldy game Age of Empires is an old classic.

In my opinion Bioshock Infinite will be a little bit "over-the-head" for this demographic.

Instead try introducing the "Borderlands" series. Start with Borderlands 2 and later the Pre-Sequel. And if you can BF4 mutiplayer mode, its hell lot of fun.

The first ever "Real PC game" that I ever played was Dead space 2... For the time, the graphics looked amazing and it was immersive and HARD AS FECK if you played it in the right difficulty. So for me it is very high on the list... (A horror fa here btw)

But with out a doubt the first on the list for me is Amnesia: The Dark Decent

It's well designed. Amazing story. Original engine and mind pants-shittingly good use of sound Put it on the top of the list for me.  

You should tell anyone, pc games are a very personal choice. What do you like, what do you want the game to do?? Then after you get a idea of what he wants to do, then you can be a bit more specific to his needs.

First question I would ask, You want horror, You want fps, you want Racing, you want solo, team, online all the time??/ 

Once you get a good idea of what he wants, they give him some ideas of games he may enjoy, let him hit youtube, watch a bit of game play, then let him decide.
