Mount & Blade Warband.



I should make a macro for that name.


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


Not the past two Humble Bundles.

And KillerTruffle, that's quite an impressive list.

Some others that are either exclusive to PC or drastically better on PC:

Europa Universalis IV
Metro: Last Light (warning: may cause obsession with graphics)
Mirror's Edge
Octodad Dadliest Catch
Sim City 4
Rogue Legacy
Sins of a Solar Empire
Distant Worlds: Universe
Divinity Original Sin
Rise of the Triad (yes, that old chestnut got a modern remake, PC only)

Also virtually any multiplat you have not played will have the best version on PC. FPS in particular are drastically better on PC both for controls and for graphics. Bioshock, Crysis, Far Cry, Deus Ex, Saints Row, etc, all series whose real home is on PC and should be played that way.

A post about something illegal, that was rightfully taken down with swiftness.

There's a fair amount of overlap with KT's list, but this one is intentionally selective.

Guys, we should really stop.

PC doesn't have exclusives. We can't keep pretending.
