PC exclusives everyone should have

New to PC gaming? Here are the basics.

PC has the largest catalog of any platform ever, this list is your starting point to a greater world of gaming possibilities.

I've tried to include one game from each of the predominantly PC genres: MMO, MOBA, FPS, ARPG, RTS

All of these games have moderate to low system requirements, so more than likely they will work on any computer made within the last few years.

All of these game are easy to get into and have lasting value though either deep mechanics and/or popular multiplayer communities surrounding them.

-------------------------------------------------------

Edit: because some people seem confused to the purpose of this list, It's only for people new to PC gaming, it's an introduction meant to be easy for people not well versed with my favorite platform and the unique kinds of games that can be found here.

Criteria to be on this list: Bug free, well supported, easily/widely available, low system requirements.

If you have any suggestions, please let me know.

List items

  • This is the biggest and most accessible Real Time Strategy game on the market now.

  • A fun and easy to pick up, team based, First Person Shooter, and it's free to boot. (a version of this game was released on xbox360; that version is so far removed from the PC version; they aren't even in the same league anymore)

  • The latest and greatest turn based strategy game. Civ 5 is a game that is very much what you make of it, it can be played fast or very slow, tactical or aggressive, no two games will be the same.

  • This is the most accessible Multiplayer Online Battle Arena game at this time, if you can get past the rough playerbase, there is great fun to be had with this game. Also, free to play.

  • This is probably the most polarizing game in the Massively Multiplayer Online genre, some people love it, some do not, everyone with a PC has played it and you should too.

  • Not a game, Steam is the PC equivalent of XBLA/PSN providing a persistent community, online matchmaking, achievements, and most importantly great sales on most of the good games available on PC.

  • The biggest ARPG on the market right now.

  • Perfection of the tower defense genre.
