PC gaming in 2016 has some fantastic first-person shooters such as Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare taking things into outer space. Battlefield 1 taking things back to basics. Overwatch becoming one of the top multiplayer online shooters and the reboot of Doom scaring the hell out of everybody!
Rise of the Tomb Raider would prove to be one of the best third person action games in years. Speaking of action games, Mirrors Edge Catalyst was a game that many gamers were surprised got made, but were very happy it did.
Unfortunately, two of the biggest PC games of 2016, Streetfighter V and No Man’s Sky had a lot of hype behind them but sadly did not live up to the expectations.
Grand Theft Auto V was one of the biggest PC games of 2015 and it would add first person mode to the long-running series.
Fighting fans were very pleased with how Mortal Kombat X turned out and those who loved Star Wars had the reboot of Star Wars: Battlefront to play. That was not the only shooter to do big business in 2015 as there was also Call of Duty: Black Ops 3 and Battlefield Hardline.
One of the biggest gaming disappointments of 2015 was how poor the PC port of Batman: Arkham Knight turned out to be.
With the PS4 and Xbox One in full swing. Many PC games in 2014 were ports from those consoles. Games like Titanfall, Ultra Streetfighter IV, Wolfenstein: The New Order and Far Cry 4.

The second season of The Walking Dead would also get its first release towards the end of 2013.
2012 was a huge year in PC gaming with a ton of releases. The biggest though has to be The Walking Dead which won numerous game of the year awards and is still talked about by gamers now!
Dishonored, Sleeping Dogs and Alan Wake were all brand new IP’s that were very well received. Diablo III was released to a horde of rabid fans. It may have had a bit of a rocky start, but things are great now.

The follow-up to Batman: Arkham Asylum, Arkham City was released to worldwide acclaim and is regarded as one of the best action games of all time.
Rockstar’s 1940’s inspired, L.A. Noire was a game you either loved or hated and the much-delayed Duke Nukem Forever failed to live up to the over a decade of hype!

While not really a new game, the first installment of the Call of Duty: Black Ops series was released in 2010. One of the biggest surprises of 2010 was Sonic & Sega All-Stars Racing which proved to be an excellent kart racer.
The big disappointment of 2010 had to be the online Final Fantasy XIV, it just wasn’t as good as it could have been.
PC gaming in 2009 closely mirrored what was on consoles at the time as many of the biggest releases would also be on PS3 and 360.
