Favorite PC Games of the Last 2 - 5 Years

I took a game playing hiatus for awhile and am getting the itch again. There are innumerable options out there to choose from and I have spent more time looking than deciding on one. So many lists are the best of 2015 or 2014, but I'd really just like to play something great.

I'd love to hear any favorites you all have played in the last few+ years.

The most recent games I've played are:

Talos Principle
Vanishing of Ethan Carter
FTL
Starcraft 2
Skyrim

Enslaved - Odyssey to the West
Need for Speed: Hot Pursuit

Darksouls 1 +expansion
Total War :shogun 2
Stealth Bastard

plus many more on consoles haha :)

Kerbal Space Program
The Talos Principle
Skyrim

Skyrim is at the top of the list for me and close behind is borderlands 2. And Bio shock infinite would have to round off my top 3.

I know its not a pc game but i would like to mention Forza 4 as that has been one of the best games i have ever played.

Skyrim
Risk of Rain
Metro Redux series
Crysis 3
Dark Siders 1 & 2
Age of Empires 2
Besiege
Battleblock Theatre
FTL
Terraria
Minecraft
Waves
VVVVVV <------ yes thats a game look it up
Insanely Twisted Shadow Planet
Don't Starve
Banished


Loved every single one of these games <3

Assassins Creed: BF
Bioshock Infinite
Portal 1&2

As best of an order as I can make. I enjoyed most of the games, but some of them (Portal 2, Tomb Raider, Bioshock Infinite) have poor replayability, and B:AC is just a meatball of a game that I haven't managed to play through it more than once.

Bioshock Infinite
Mass Effect 2
Tomb Raider
Counterstrike: Global Offensive
Minecraft
Cities: Skylines
Batman: Arkham City
Portal 2

In order of hours, it would probably be Minecraft > CS: GO > Mass Effect 2 > Cities: Skylines >?

Tomb Raider
Skyrim
Fallout NV
Crysis 3
Wolfenstein TNO
Saints Row IV
Bio Shock Infinite

in no particular order.

Skyrim
Skyrim
AMD
Skyrim
Moar Skyrim...
Did i mention Skyrim?

Skyrim
KSP
Prison Architect
ETS2
XCOM: Enemy Unknown/Enemy Within

Witcher 3
Skyrim

Tek Syndicate Minecraft server :D

I really enjoyed Banished. Did anyone else play that? It was super addictive, but needed more content. I've heard that there have been mods made for it, but I havent mucked with any of them. I'm hoping that they will make a second version, with a little more complexity and additional features/mechanics.

Looking forward to Fallout 4 and Star Citizen!

I did play Banished. I liked it a lot, but I agree about the content. Balance also seemed a bit off.

Europa Universalis IV
Probably the best strategy game I've ever played. Crazy good.

"Crusader Kings II"
A unique game that is almost as good as Europa Universalis IV.

Skyrim
It's Skyrim, you know why it's on the list.

Battlefield: Bad Company 2
My favorite online shooter of the past 5 years.

The Stanley Parable
One of the rare games that managed to really surprise me. A very cool experience.

Gone Home
Is it really a game? I don't know...but I loved my short time with it.

Wolfenstein : The New Order
The grandaddy of all shooters came back to show people how it's done.

Fallout 3 (7 years but if you don't play it your nuts considering 4 is nearly out)
Fallout NV (3 is better just due to lore but I loved NV all the same, and let's not forget Project Brazil)
Skyrim (kinda meh without mods)
GTA V (loved it)
Orion Prelude (just kidding)
Arma 3
Project Brazil (not sure where in development it's at but it was such a massive mod for Fallout NV it could be considered it's own game just make sure to have really high charisma and choose to be a nerd, it's awesome)
Far Cry 4
Don't Starve
ArchAge (it got somewwhat better)
Payday 2
Insurgency
Poker Night 2
Chivilary Medieval Warfare

GTA IV and V (Because some times IV is better than V IMO)
Assetto Corsa
WOT (World of Tanks)
RIDE (Like Forza but with Motorcycles)
Fallout 3 and NV
Skyrim (With Mods)
SuperMeatBoy (Rage Inducing Fun)
Minecraft (Like who doesn't like this game)
Sonic Generations (Best Sonic to Date)
Portal 1&2

I remember watching a review for this a while back, but completely forgot about it. It seems unique and I might look into checking it out...

Interesting and great list. Never heard of Prison Architect, but it looks addicting and I've been meaning to get KSP.

What's the deal with Euro Trucker, you make your truck and then cruise around Europe?? Sounds like an oddly enjoyable time
