This frequently updated page is the home of my favourite games on PC, an evolving top-5 list of the games I think are the best the PC has to offer.
PC Gaming: My Favourites
Here is the list of my favourite games on PC right now. If a game is multiplatform, this represents the platform I’ve played it on most.
The Binding of Isaac: Afterbirth
The Binding of Isaac is my most played game on Steam for a reason. The almost endless combination of random items and rooms, along with the number of things to unlock just make it infinitely replayable. I can’t stop it! Watch my Isaac let’s play series!
Although it’s still in Early Access, Dead Cells is an amazing adventure platformer (aka Metroidvania) with brutal combat and procedurally generated levels. It’s also utterly beautiful. Watch my Dead Cells let’s play!
I wasn’t expecting Pony Island to be anywhere near as good as it was. The initial impressions of a simple side-scroller are blown away once you properly get into the story. So many different mechanics and a lot of detail crammed in. Definitely worth playing.
Procedurally generated top-down shooters are starting to become common, but Nuclear Throne was one of the first and is still one of the best. Cute, quirky and mechanically solid.
Dawn of War: Dark Crusade
Real-time strategy games are my bag, baby! Dawn of War removes the ability to “turtle” (or play defensively), forcing you to fight over capture points. I love the 40k universe and the combat is utterly brutal and gory, even though the units are fairly small on the screen. But I love it!
