I'm sure you've played Mass Effect, but try it on PC. It still has a good online community and it's only $11 for all 3 games on GMG, right now.

Also, STALKER series as stated before... and Total War: Rome II... and Sins of a Solar Empire Rebellion.

I once came across this site for PSP game recs and I think it fits for all platforms: http://vsrecommendedgames.wikia.com/wiki/PC

Here's a TL;DR list, TC. You can use GameFAQs to filter what you want to see: http://images.wikia.com/vsrecommendedgames/images/9/90/History_of_PC_Gaming.jpg

About 20 years worth of PC games.

Here's another 10 years for the DOS era:-

Most of those 'exclusives' are also con consoles.

Checkmate fanboys..


To be honest, if you want exclusives check League of legends, Starcraft I and II,World of Warcraft Grim Fandango, to the moon, etc it;s mostly RTS games, Mobas and indie games, there are no exclusive AAA games on PC anymore because it is not viable.
METAL GEAR SOLID 4 and SUPER SMASH BROSS BRAWL!!! 2007 games of the year!!!!
If you believe in Goku and are 100% proud, put this in your sig.
