    Not the best PC games in or of 2015.

    But, yes, it's a bad headline / title. Got you clicking and posting, though. Looks like that's what they wanted.

    Regardless - those are great games! Make your own lists!

    Stay with me now, as I know that a lot of you kids don't understand this:



    Imagine you hadn't played PC games before - if you came from the Wii / DS via iOS and the Xbox 360. This is a list of games that make PC gaming what it is.

    It's not YOUR new opinion. They're not running a popularity contest. They're not running for president. It's a list of iconic and high quality PC games, that THEY believe are significant.

    I think that the point is that this is Eurogamer's recommended essential PC games. If you already know what you like, and don't want recommendations, then - move along - this isn't the article you're looking for.

    I find it interesting to see what they consider essential. I have most of these, but not all. I may, at some point, branch out and try one of the ones I don't have, based on the recommendation. I don't expect that I'll love everything, but it's nice that they're telling us what they think is great, without needing those arbitrary numbers pasted everywhere. Especially '8', which was funny, but just meant highly recommended, but not perfect.

  • The Elder Scrolls Online PS4/Xbox One requires 15GB day-one patch

  • Ryze 23/04/2015

    Looks to me like these consoles should have been compatible with BDXL discs. Wouldn't have added much to the cost of the drives, as they're pretty much the same discs with one or two additional layers.

    Oh well - still 65GB COMPRESSED, is a ludicrous amount of data for one game. Again - OH WELL. If you want the game, what can you do?

  • Smart Boy will turn your iPhone 6 Plus into a Game Boy Color

  • Ryze 04/04/2015

    It'd be great to see this gain a few more control buttons.

    The form factor has real potential, and this is the sort of thing that Nintendo should already be doing, and bundling with downloadable, official games.

    Seeing a tablet-focussed official Nintendo bundle, with a wireless pro controller, HDMI cable or wireless video sender (chromecast or otherwise), and a bundle of games from across the generations would be marvellous.

    Of course, Sega and other studios could do the same, but a company like Nintendo are the ones who could really focus on this sort of thing right now. Unfortunately, the seem to struggle getting their own back catalogue onto their own hardware at the best of times, so...

    Took WAY too long. Can't fucking believe this isn't out yet.

    Already got 2 versions of this from 2013 onwards. Not paying more than 19.99 for this, and I might not even bother for that price unless they add something to the single player game.

    Sorry! I was going to buy it in January for 30. It's nearly fucking April. 2015.

    It's hardly started. Would you judge the PS2 based on its library at this point in 2001?

    It was shite, at this point. The Dreamcast's library, and success, was where the Wii U is currently.

    What's happened so far, is an avoidance of the 2006-2007 droughts that we saw last gen, and the 2013 Wii U droughts.

    There has been a steady stream of PS4 software, but the best of the original exclusives will take another year or two to complete.

    In the meantime, I guess we're suffering playing Dragon Age, Shadow of Mordor, Alien Isolation and Bloodborne, eh?

    Shocking stuff.

    I believe that they should reserve judgement for once the Playstation Plus version is eventually delivered.

  • Out Ran: Meeting Yu Suzuki, Sega's original outsider

  • Ryze 23/03/2015


    I can imagine that these guys' dreams can be VERY costly for their host companies, despite being wonderful for their reputations.

    I know that some of the crap that I've spent money and time on could have been much better spent on business and money making, so at least I'm responsible for my own finances.

    I can only imagine how much money AM2 has spent on R&D by being so bleeding edge. The stuff they were doing with Lockheed Martin , getting the Model 2 board together for Virtua Racing & Daytona at the beginning of the 90s - that must have cost a bit.

    Making some of the earliest motion capture tech for games for the 1st Virtua Fighter - that must have cost a bit.

    Shenmue being in development as a concept starting in the Saturn days, and only having 2 of 10 episodes released before the Dreamcast died a death - that must of cost a bit.

    The R360 - that must of cost a bit.

    I can only imagine how much Hideo Kojima costs Konami, and Kazunori Yamauchi and formerly Fumito Ueda & Ken Kuturagi cost Sony. Must be a fortune, and very, very difficult to say no to their expensive ideas after they've had a couple of hits.

    I do wonder if these guys all actually make a long term profit for their hosts.

    A man who's work rivalled and often beat rollercoasters as the star attraction at theme parks; had you sat in a hot arcade instead of on the beach in some of the most beautiful locations; rivalled and beat pretty much every form of entertainment in a marvellously entertaining and dazzling 1980s; and pushed relentlessly at the forefront of video games and graphics hardware technology throughout decades of change and development from the 80s into our current landscape of lavish HD capable consoles.

    All of that was the tip of the iceberg. Sprite scaling, lavish soundtracks, Networked cabinets, multi-monitor gameplay, 3D, motion capture, texture mapping, Open worlds, AI, even the often loathed Quick Time Events. Pioneer in video games. The imitators usually lacked quality, refinement and style, and only dreamed of coming anywhere near close to his greatness.

    Bravo, and thank you.

  • Google Nexus 6 review

  • Ryze 22/03/2015

    I wouldn't mind having this as a reader / web browser / secondary handset - for my old number which I moved over to prepay a couple of years ago.

    I have to keep it active to avoid missing calls from some people, or having to contact 25 or so companies to update it, and move junk calls to my new number in the process.

    I'd never be making calls on it, and I'd be tethering it to my iPhone 5, so that'd work well instead of a new tablet.

    Maybe, if I can get a decent deal on this, I'll go for it. Not spending 550 on it, anyway.

  • God of War 3 Remastered announced for PS4

  • Ryze 20/03/2015

    Low hanging fruit. Low cost conversion. It already looks amazing on the big screen.

    360 only owners from last gen are in for a treat, but I'll wait for some new experiences now.

    If the next God of War doesn't have some serious innovations along with local / online co-op for 4+ players, it'll be hard to get excited for more button bashing.

    Santa Monica should tie up with Sega and make a modern Golden Axe, then Guardian Heroes with Treasure, based on God of War Tech.

    THAT would be exciting.

  • With the announcement of the NX, Nintendo admits defeat with the Wii U

  • Ryze 19/03/2015


    It is a great system in 2015.

    It's just flawed. It has great games, and it's worth buying for NOW and this year.

    What would stop me splurging on it, and its library, is that I can spend the same cash on a new GPU for my PC, and unlock my current games library and the next couple of years worth (AND BEYOND) in marvellous quality, OR:

    Get a PS4 and be sorted for the next 5 years.

    That's the issue. Look at how cheap X1s are. I'd be so tempted to buy an X1 before a Wii U, even though I really do want a Wii U!

    I want a Vita too, I want a new 3DS - I want it all - but I also want a holiday, and I need to prioritise. I'm swimming in games, and my Steam Library is just sat there looking at me, and can get better every time I invest in my PC.

    That is VERY powerful. PC gaming is gorgeous for me right now, even though I don't game much. Some of the new stuff, classics and emulation, plus the mass of control options that I've owned for years already...

    I've not even mentioned mobile, because I'm not that audience, but Nintendo's competition is bloody strong in 2015. I say I'm not the audience, but since the Wii U launched, I've bought an Android phone, and iPhone and a Nexus tablet. Nintendo's position is a bit laughable in 2015 - unfortunately they've been pushed into a place where standalone Sat Navs are.

    I bought a cheap Wii in 2011, and now have a Wii library of probably 15-20 of the best games, and more Gamecube games as well. half of them were only available (at a reasonable price) pre-owned. I could only stomach pissing around enough with Wii's 'online store' long enough to buy Mario Kart SNES in 2011. There's still credit left from their ripoff system on my account, but I'm not pissing around for long enough to pay them any more. None of those Gamecube games were available to buy online directly from them, and the console never had storage options for such games anyway. Eeeeeeejits! Wii's are so ubiquitous and antiquated now, that I'm sure you can grab the console from 10 without cables these days. Great strategy not releasing a Wii HD in 2009-10, eh Nintendo? even the current console still plays Wii games at 480p!

    My god the competition is strong. They ought to really leverage Sega and other brands like Ubifail with complementary content and make a huge push with this new unified strategy.

    It's just a shame that I have no confidence in their ability to pull it off.

    Look at how nice the New 3DS is? It's taken them since TWENTY ELEVEN to deliver that unit, it still has shockingly bad battery life, a crap touch screen and low resolution. They sell it WITHOUT A POWER ADAPTOR. Well done, chaps. That must mean that's it's just a generic micro or mini USB adaptor, right? Right!? RIGHT!!?!?!?

    It's a 2006-8 spec handheld, with a nice lenticular screen. Still marvellous, and I want one, but there you go.

    Come on, Nintendo! I'll not be jumping though a single Nintendohoop just to play more Mario, while I have a Wii with the best Mario games already running on it.

    It's gonna be hilarious when this NX comes along, and it's basically a cheapo Nintendo Ouya created to cash in on the Chinese market.

    Sorry, but these clones, if they're similar enough, or make money, can be sued and removed from sale by Namco.

    The question is of whether Namco deem it worthwhile to spend the money defending their IP.

    It's the way people will end up in court if they don't own the IP.

    I could make a maze game that's not quite Pacman, but is inspired by it. My game would include online multiplayer, and the 'zombies' would be human controlled as they chased Zackman around the maze.

    If I start selling it for a healthy profit, Namco would rightfully shoot me down to protect their property. Makes no difference if Namco hired me in 1983 to code Ms. PacMan, or PacLand or whatever.

    But if you'd not played my game, whoever you are - your opinion on the subject would be completely null and void, clearly.
