What games are "must haves" for a PC Gamer?

#1RoutineInsanityPosted 9/20/2013 1:57:03 AM
Title ask the question. Just wondering what you guys think are the absolute must haves for any PC Gamers library. I just recently upgraded from a 500 Dell laptop to a custom job (i5-4670K, ASRock z87 Pro3, Corsair Vengence DDR3 1600 4x2, Samsung 840 120GB SSD, Seagate 1TB HDD, Sapphire Radeon HD 7950, Win 8) and i'm just trying to figure out what games to add to my library.

Currently Owned: (Steam, Origin, GameStop App and actual disks)
Star Wars: ToR
Witcher 1&2
Watch Dogs
Saints Row IV
Dragon Age: Origins
Neverwinter Nights (Series)
Farcry 3 (have code, but uPlay won't register(any help on resolving this issue would be much appreciated))

You can buy a $500 console and a $500 computer and have two crap machines, or you can spend $1000 building your own computer and have the best of both worlds.

Not the best list, but without knowing what genres TC likes, I'm not even going to try to make one. Just too many games to choose from.

Divinity II: Dragon Knight Saga
Bioshock Infinity
Batman Arkham City
Torchlight 2 and Sacred 2 if you like Diablo series, although I don't recommend Diablo 3.
Skyrim and Fallout 3 if you like modding.

In my opinion, if there even is such a thing as must haves

Starcraft 2
Half-life 2
Counter Strike GO
Battlefield 3
The longest journey
Grim fandango
Age of empires 3
Company of heroes
Civilization V

A lot of the games that I thought of as essential are now too dated to interest someone who has not played them before. The ones I listed are still games I would play even now.
