10. Battlefield 1
Battlefield 1 is the continuation of a game series we all know and love. The game is a first-person shooter game that takes place in World War 1 times. The graphics are unbelievably intense and looks amazing on PC.

9. Resident Evil 7
Resident Evil 7 is an amazing comeback of the iconic horror game series. If you’re ever in the mood to take a huge crap in your pants, this is THE game for you. Turn off all the lights, put on a nice pair of headphones, and get ready to jump out of your seat and, eventually, rage-quit out of the game. You play as Ethan, a man searching for his missing wife in Louisiana. He stumbles upon the Baker family who is infected with a mysterious, deadly virus.
Overwatch is a game much like the renown Team Fortress 2 game. It’s a multiplayer cartoony first-person shooter game with colorful maps and interesting characters. Created by Blizzard Entertainment, Overwatch’s multiplayer is highly competitive and has multiple characters with extremely high to low skill caps. There are multiple different game modes ranging from Capture the Point and Deliver the Payload including. With 24 unique characters, this is a game you’ll have to take time learning but don’t let that deter you from this masterpiece; you’ll have fun at every step of the way.
7. Forza Horizon 3
With the introduction of Windows 10, Forza Horizon 3 has now come to PC! This racing game utilizes a more “arcadey” style of racing simulation meaning you won’t have to become a racecar driver to become a pro at the game. You can do almost everything you could ever want in a racing game starting from modifying the power of your car to buying your dream car to putting on new body kits for your favorite cars. Forza Horizon 3’s customization allows each and every driver to create a car which matches their taste and could be completely unique to that single example. The single player aspect is amazing and will provide hours of non-stop racing action while the multiplayer will pit you against the best (or worst) racers the internet has to offer. If racing isn’t your style, you can even take a car and just free roam through the enormous map drifting through corners or obeying all the traffic laws. Do I even have to mention the amazing graphics?
6. Grand Theft Auto 5
Grand Theft Auto 5 is already a very well-known series and needs no introduction. GTA V has it all; you can become a car enthusiast modifying and buying all the cars you love, you can rob anything from convenience stores to banks, or you can become the CEO of a corporation of corrupt workers stealing your way to the top. There’s no limit to what you can do in the world of Grand Theft Auto V. The story mode offers hours and hours of cop killing fun and you get to play 3 different characters who are all unique among themselves to experience what it’s like to live in the hood, be rich, or live in the deserts as an insane hillbilly.
5. Sniper Elite 4
Sniper Elite 4 is a third-person, with first-person aspects, shooter game which puts a huge emphasis on stealth. Set in World War 2, you play as a cover agent and elite marksman, Karl Fairbourne, fighting alongside the Italian Renaissance to free their country from Fascism. This game will really put you to the test and challenge you in both your mind and your reflexes. You’ll have to aim well to be able to snipe the right targets and you’ll also have to plan out the whole mission so that you won’t be detected or else you’ll be in a lot more trouble than needed.
4. The Witness
The Witness places the player on a mysterious island packed with puzzles with almost no explanation. If you’re looking for something to tickle your brain this is the best game you can get. With over 650 different puzzles featured, this game will challenge you more and more without ever letting you down. The graphics are beautiful with a cartoony feel and the music will help you become serene when you eventually get frustrated by the challenging puzzles! Even if you’re not a huge fan of puzzle games, this is one that might pique your interests.
3. Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon: Wildlands
Ghost Recon: Wildlands is a military style shooter in a responsive, gigantic open world filled with dangers that you can tackle completely solo or in a 4-player co-op. Each player can choose what style of play they’d like to go with; you can go with the loud and proud style by running in guns blazing or you can go with the stealth tactics silently killing all your enemies until you reach your mission. This will be one of the greatest games of 2017 that you’ll be able to play and thoroughly enjoy with your friends.
2.The Witcher 3
CD Projekt Red really outdid themselves with The Witcher 3. If you’re looking for a very story-driven game, this is THE number 1 game that should be on your list. Set in a nightmarish fantasy world where hitmen, called Witchers, kill undead monsters and mythical beasts for a living, The Witcher 3 offers a vast world filled with excruciating details to immerse yourself and play in whatever way you’d like. You can play for hours on end going through the main story, seeking out new adventures through side-quests, or simply lavishing the beautiful graphics this game has to offer. There’s also the DLC The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt which is practically another game rather than a DLC. You won’t be disappointed.
1. PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds
PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds has quickly become the biggest battle royal game of the year. Although the game is still in Alpha, there are hundreds and hundreds, if not thousands, or players currently online and murdering each other. You can play solo or play with up to 4 friends to team up and kill other players. In the beginning, you’re placed in a plane with up to 100 other people and you’re in control of where you want to land. But, if you land near other players, make sure to rush and find a gun fast before they do or else you’re in for a quick death. PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds is still in its early stages of development, but, once this game is well-optimized, this will be one of the best games to play.
