With the huge advancements in technology and gaming creations seemingly having no boundaries, with graphics and effects coming on leaps and bounds all the time, developers are spoiling the gaming community with regular releases. We’ve never really had it this good before, have we?
There are all kinds of games available with countless developers in various different spaces contributing to the vast improvement in gaming choices, whether it’s Epic Games and their hugely successful Fortnite offering on various consoles, Playtech and their Vacation Station slot which takes you far away via your mobile phone or the likes of Respawn’s Apex Legends which has proven to be hugely popular on PC so far in 2019.
Despite the new releases, sometimes you just can’t beat a game from the past. In this instance, particularly in the world of PC gaming, which has an endless amount of classic games, sometimes the oldies will always remain the goodies.
With that in mind, we thought we’d highlight some of the best PC games around that still continue to impress in 2019.
Rainbow Six Siege
Released in 2015 and made by Ubisoft Montreal, Rainbow Six Siege is still a game worthy of your time partly because Ubisoft continue to update it – four times a year to be precise – and, put bluntly, because it’s just a really good game. With fun characters and gadgets, a number of maps and various different guns, Rainbow Six Siege is one of the best team games around, which offers rewards for perfect timing and clever, coordinated teamwork.
Despite being released in 2016, Blizzard’s Overwatch feels like a timeless classic and the type of game that will seemingly never die out. A team based hero shooter, Overwatch is full of tanks and, seeing as the highest number of kills is the ultimate prize, a hell of a lot of epic battling with the vast array of weapons available. A fun and enjoyable play with 27 heroes to choose from, Overwatch is one of the greatest teamwork games around. Still.
Fortnite Battle Royale
Fortnite Battle Royale had to make the list, didn’t it? Certainly not an original choice but more than worthy of making the list, Epic’s 2017 release which started as a PUBG imitation has evolved into one of the greatest ever games ever made – certainly in terms of its following. Whether you’re interested in architecture and building various structures, taking part in some simply mental battles or keen to be rewarded for good aim, Fortnite Battle Royale will rival plenty of future releases, that’s for sure. It’s a classic.
Certainly not everyone’s cup of tea but a game with a big following, Psyonix’s 2015 release is one of the most entertaining PC games around. With the option of shooting hoops in some variations of the game, the main selling point for Rocket League is its pure mayhem, which combines both hockey and soccer as you try and score as many goals as possible in your rocket-powered battle cars. All physics and speed, Rocket League takes some skill to master and is a hugely popular game on the esports scene.
Not the original Doom but still a classic in its own way, this creation made by id and released in 2016 had to make the list, especially as the original is quite possibly the most influential shooter of all-time. With such a hard act to follow, this new version of the game delivered, that’s for sure. From punching demons, high-explosive rockets and its heavy metal music, Doom is brilliant.
