    Fall of The Samurai

    It's standalone, so it counts, right?

      I have it on computer, and will agree it looks amazing

      Even on medium settings (I have a lowly HD6670) the demo looked great and ran smoothly. I'll probably pick this up later.

          I was running it on my HD6790 at Max settings with the Hi-res textures and MAN did it look good, still played pretty smooth too :D

    Diablo 3... There I've said it... Despite all the issues around the launch, the game is still really fun... Granted it wasn't fun at launch, it only really got good at patch 1.0.5, but the game was never going to be perfect until Blizzard starting getting feedback on the game as a whole.. I've still managed to rack up over 200 hours of gameplay, something no other game this year has provided me. I guess people need to remember that D2 wasn't perfect on launch and many people agree it wasn't great until the expansion.

    The Walking Dead!

    Torchlight 2

    and I'm going to be sneaky and nominate Baldur's Gate: EE

    The walking dead
    max Payne 3

    Diablo 3, Borderlands 2 and FTL are the only PC games that come to mind that came out this year.

    I don't think I can really give any of them the nod as my favourite though, despite dumping quite a few hours into them and defending Diablo 3 pretty fervently.

    My favourite PC game of this year is Starcraft 2: Wings of Liberty :/

    Battlefield 3

    Far Cry 3, Planetside 2 or Guild Wars 2. Not that any of these games are perfect by any stretch but they have been the most enjoyable to me so far.

    DotA 2

    Borderlands 2

    (Ok, so I only have it on PS3, but since it's my fave PS3 game of the year and the PC looks better, it's gotta be a winner!)

    Dishonored, Kingdoms of Amalur: Reckoning, Mass Effect 3 and FTL were highlights. And I'm going to call Far Cry 3 now too, despite only 30 minutes of play time..

    Haven't played many PC games this year (most of my time on PC was Skyrim or Minecraft/Tekkit), but Torchlight 2 and Walking Dead are both excellent.

    Mark of the Ninja. I was really impressed with that game.

    Torchlight II. I just bought it from the most recently steam sale, but I am enjoying it thoroughly.

    Day Z - While on a technical level it's pretty average - I think it encapsulates almost everything that the PC platform has going for it and it changed a genre forever.

    Far Cry 3 - Any game where you can spend the first three hours of the game virtually bumming around ignoring the mission structure is a good game.

    Planetside 2 - For similar reasons as Day Z. It's something that's only really possible on the PC platform.

      Second the Torchlight 2 nomination.


        damn. theres too many to have just a top 5!
        I wanna restrict myself to just 5, but I wanna say XCOM as well.

    The Secret World. Wins it hands down.

    I think Hitman: Absolution may be a late contender. Haven't played enough of it to make a final judgement.
    Dishonoured didn't pull me in as much as I wanted it to. It's still a great game but I didn't play it as much as I thought I would.
    I'm actually liking WOW: Mists of Pandaria. I think Blizzard did a fantastic job with this expansion. There is something for everyone.
    Was Bastion this year? That was an excellent game.
    max payne 3 was good too.

    But really I don't think I can give any of these games GOTY....

    Walking Dead and FTL are the ones that stick for me.

    Dark Souls
    Walking Dead
    Mark of the Ninja
    Borderlands 2

    The Walking Dead. Dishonored. Anna's Quest.

    Diablo 3
    Mechwariior Online
