What Are The Best PC Games?
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 Gamespot.com, 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
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.
