What Are The Best PC Games?

Updated on March 13, 2015

The Best PC Games

In the world of gaming, this is a question that is sure to spark an argument. People have their various tastes in video games, just like with everything else, and it is hard to pinpoint objectively the best PC games out there – especially considering there are so many genres to consider.

We could look at overall sales, because some people think that the best games are ones that sell the most copies. But, I think that the best PC games aren’t defined by how many copies they sell, but should be defined the quality they have.

To decide the best PC games out today, I have taken reviews from, one of the leading PC game reviewing websites on the internet. Here are the top three best PC games for this year so far:


Best PC Games- Dragon Age: Origins

Genre: Computer Role-playing

Developer: BioWare
Release date: November, 2009

Dragon Age: Origins is a computer role-playing game that puts the player into an epic medieval/fantasy world in which demons, dragons, and dark beings roam. The player can choose from six different story lines and up to six different classes. Action is similar to that of other games produced by BioWare in that the player commands a hero and up to three computer-controlled party members in an epic fight against the forces of evil.

Consensus Ranking: Every major PC game reviewer gave Dragon Age: Origins the equivalent of at least a 90% rating, with many of them giving the game a perfect 10 out of 10. This game was also named the “Best PC Game of 2009”.


Best PC Games- Battlefield: Bad Company 2

Genre: Modern First-Person Shooter

Developer: EA DICE
Release date: March ,2010

Battlefield: Bad Company 2 is a sequel to the best-selling FPS Battlefield: Bad Company, which was itself a modern take on a line of Battlefield games based in other eras, namely World War II. The game puts the player as a member of an oddball group of mercenaries either in single-player campaign mode or the very popular online multiplayer mode. The game’s high level of realism, combined with its engrossing graphics, wide choice of weaponry, and addictive multiplayer mode, have made it incredibly popular this year.

Consensus Ranking: Every major PC game reviewer gave this game the equivalent of at least a 90% rating, with many of them giving the game a perfect 10 out of 10. The game is also consensually rated as being slightly better than its main competitor, Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2.


Best PC Games- Mass Effect 2

Genre: Computer Role-playing
Release date: January,2010

Mass Effect 2 is an action RPG developed by BioWare that is a follow-up to the critical and commercial success of Mass Effect. The player selects a class and chooses between 19 different weapons in the struggle to fight against evil alien races bent on destroying humanity. The game is an improvement visually and technologically from its predecessor, and also features an innovative system in which the player controls the eventual fate of the main character – as well as the plot of the planned Mass Effect 3.

Consensus Ranking: As with the other two games above, every major PC game reviewer gave this game the equivalent of at least a 90% rating, with many of them giving the game a perfect 10 out of 10. The consensus is that the game is an improvement over the wildly-popular Mass Effect.

      Thx ;)

      Got to agree with Faylar that Baldurs Gate 2 is fantastic! Still, I would be keen to check out Dragon Age: Origins. Keep up the great hubs.

      Okay I'll try to make this short lol. I think most of the games CaptainD mentioned are good, except for KOTOR 1 which I think for a first game for a new engine is good enough to put it a cut above the rest.

      Dragon Age is quite bad imo. Here's why:

      Mass Effect 2 and Bad Company 2 are very good for this year, arguably the best games I've played so far in 2010.

      As for all time best games, off the top of my mind:

      1) Baldur's Gate 2

      2) Everquest

      3) Starcraft

      4) Final Fantasy 6

      5) Civilization 4

      I think that so far,. KOTOR 1, Broken Sword 2, TRON 2.0, Sid Meier's Pirates!, LEGO Indiana Jones, and so that I can add at least one indie game Mr Robot are among the very best PC games I've ever played.

      Thanks for the mention of my blog, btw! :-D
