New to PC gaming. What gems have I missed?

I built a beast rig and I'd like to know what games have you guys played on the pc that you have thoroughly enjoyed. I've missed a lot of years of pc gaming so there's bound to be magnificent games that have been overshadowed by today's games.

Mount & Blade Warband.



I should make a macro for that name.

Well any game you played on console the past few years is going to be 100x better on PC. Better graphics, framerate, fast loading and saving and just more vibrant overall.

PC only games, a lot just depends on what you like, theres so many games. Many people really love Mount and Blade as suggested, but its something that doesnt look to pretty and will not work out your new rig.

Mount & Blade Warband is definitely one. Also:

- StarCraft 2
- Civilization V
- NEO Scavenger
- The Binding of Isaac
- Awesomenauts
- Papers, Please
- FTL: Faster Than Light

Remember to always look for sales! It's key to growing a large library of various games. In just 7 months (I got back into PC gaming in January) I've grown my Steam library from ~15 games, to now 232 games, and I'm sure that realistically I've only spent <$200 this year. Always check Humble Bundle (you can select how much of your money goes to Humble, how much goes to the developers, and how much goes to charity!) reddit's r/GameDeals, Steam's weeklong deals/midweek madness/weekend deals/daily deals, and various other PC game sites and bundle sites. Trust me, you'll find games that you're looking to buy for dirt cheap, rather than having to pay full retail price.

Except for Mount & Blade Warband, the devs deserve full price so they can fund the sequel.

That's true. Though it seems to go on sale relatively often; I wish Humble would do a Humble M&B Bundle so the game could get more players and pull in a ton of money for TaleWorlds.

Yeah, buy that, and forget about all this Humble Bundle trash. Most of that is just crappy old hard drive clutter.
