PC Gaming! PC Gaming! PC Gaming! I guess that was the 100th time that we mentioned it within the last 5-6 weeks and againwe will say that PC Gaming is still rising higher and higher, especially after a disappointing start to the consoles as compared to the last generation of consoles. And it’s just not just because of the better hardware, not because of the E-Sports, not because of the cost, rather it is simply because there is huge amount of games, most of which have been put in the PC line-up in 2016.
Talking about games which were previously going to be available for the PC, we can see that there were already huge titles like Deus Ex: Mankind Divided, Mirror’s Edge: Catalyst, Homefront: The Revolution, XCOM 2 and Dark Souls 3 were some of the multiplatformers making it to PC. Coming to the PC exclusives, there were creative games like Fortnite, Law Breakers, Mount & Blade 2 etc making it into the 2016 release calendar. Another game that was previously a PC exclusive which was later announced for PS4 as well was Kingdom Come: Deliverance. The most anticipated PC exclusive though is Star Citizen which is going to be the new benchmark in terms of graphics fidelity, according to the developers. Being the most crowd funded game ever, many people are expecting it to be the best game when it releases and if Roberts Space Industries delivers on what it promised, we could definitely have the game of the decade at least.
Coming to the console part of the discussion, Xbox One is the ‘ONE’ who has made the most aggressive moves. With Microsoft trying to make the PC and Xbox ecosystem into one, most of the all the previously Xbox One Exclusives will be coming to the PC as well. With major Titles like Recore, Scalebound and Quantum Break, all gamers might just jump aboard the PC community because the only thing that PCs lacked till now were major single player exclusives.
Also No Man’s Sky, which was previously a PS4 exclusive title is coming to PC as well. Another game that was later announced for the PC was Hellblade, a game by Ninja Theory, the developers of the reboot of Devil May Cry. Some other games are there which are limited to PS4 and PC. If you have a look at all the games coming out this year, you’ll notice that PC is getting a majority of titles which are either not in the Xbox camp or not in the PS4 camp, making PC a common platform.
Now that PC has so many games coming out this year, and all of the Xbox One games coming to PC, there is only very little choice between which gaming system to choose.
