Top 3 PC Exclusive Games

By Gaming

Half-Life is one of the best games of all time. It is a first-person shooter developed by Valve and published by Sierra Studios for Windows in 1998. The game went on to be a massive hit and lead to the creation of the Half-life series. Half-life is centered around Gordon Freeman, a scientist trying to escape the Black Mesa Research Facility after it is invaded by aliens. You progress through the game, fighting enemies with unique weapons and solving complex puzzles.

The most revolutionary part of the game is the player’s ability to explore the world. Most shooters at the time were simple shooting galleries with no real world feel to them. Valve founder Gabe Newell made this a point of emphasis and worked tirelessly to create an immersive experience instead of a more simple game. He also brought in well known writer Marc Laidlaw to assist in the story writing, adding a more compelling narrative than most games developed in that time.

World of Warcraft or WoW, is the most popular MMORPG of all time. At its Zenith in 2017 it peaked with over forty-six million monthly active users. Still hosting almost thirty million players per month right now, WoW is a massive success. Released in 2004 by Blizzard Entertainment, this game is set in the world of Azeroth, a preexisting location from the Warcraft fantasy universe.

In World of Warcraft players create their own unique character, to explore a massive world full of scenic landscape, terrifying monsters, never ending quests, and other players. WoW brings its players together to complete difficult quests and raid difficult dungeons. It also allows players to fight one another in its player versus player combat. All of this is done while leveling your character up to unlock new magical skills and better items in pursuit of an extremely powerful max leveled character.

World of Warcraft

Rome: Total War is a real time strategy game developed by The Creative Assembly and published by Activision for Windows in 2004. The game is set in ancient Rome from 270 BC to 14 AD, stretching from the rise of the Republican period and delving into the early decades of the Imperial period. When playing you control a Roman family vying for success and control of the area. The gameplay itself is a mix of tactical battles and turn-based strategy. Players work their hardest to manage the economy, government, complex diplomacy and an ever expanding military while working to complete a series of objectives across Europe and Africa.

Metro Exodus

Metro Exodus is a story-driven first person shooter. Driven by it’s post-apocalyptic setting, it combines combat and stealth with exploration and survival horror to create an intense and immersive gameplay.

With that being said – Metro Exodus comes out on top of this list due to the fact that even with the most powerful graphics card, your PC will still struggle to get up to 40 FPS while playing this game on the highest settings. This game is even more demanding when you take into account that it uses real-time ray tracing to achieve it’s realistic atmosphere. As you can see from the recommended specs below, you’ll need a pretty powerful PC.

One of the most anticipated games of the decade, Cyberpunk 2077 requires a pretty powerful PC, as it will go through your memory like no other. Even with the recommended requirements, Cyberpunk 2077 will still struggle to maintain its frame rates at points, especially if you’re using its real time ray-tracing features. This game uses so much power that even the most powerful PCs will still struggle to keep up with it. Below you can see the recommended specs for the game.

Microsoft Flight Simulator 2020

Microsoft Flight Simulator 202 is just as its name suggests – it’s a flight simulator that allows you to test your piloting skills with real world flight challenges and fly to anywhere on earth.

While the recommended specs don’t require the most beefy processor or graphics card to play, Microsoft Flight Simulator 2020 takes up a whopping 150 GB of storage. The game uses real-world graphics and gets data from satellites which gets processed into the game to recreate the entire planet – becoming one of the most accurate simulation games out right now. But be prepared – you’re going to be waiting quite a few hours for this game to download.
