If you game on PC, you’ll know that the platform exclusive titles are all about depth, complexity, and a deep appreciation for time investment. No, we’re not talking about time investment in terms of grinding, we’re talking about the time that will need to be invested in order to fully appreciate the obscene depths of the gameplay.

Here are a few of the PC exclusive titles that truly illustrate what it means to be a PC gamer.

Total War: Warhammer 2

When someone tells you that they have invested up to a month into a single PC game campaign, you might initially be at a loss for words. But this is the reality of Total War: Warhammer 2, perhaps one of the most mentally demanding, time draining PC games to have ever existed. But then, did you really think that organising and expanding an empire, while fighting a fully-fledged war was going to be easy?

The Total War franchise has been running for decades, and is more popular now than it has ever been. For the most part, the most recent entries have stuck true to the franchise’s origins, allowing for obscenely complicated management of continent spanning war empires. But now, with the addition of the Warhammer license, real time battle also include giant ogre units, that can literally crush infantry beneath their horned feet.

All in all, Total War: Warhammer 2 has an extremely steep learning curve, but is also deeply rewarding, and visually spectacular.

If you prefer easy going games, you can instead play to win jackpots at a world class online casino.

Half-Life: Alyx

What, Half-Life is finally back? But it’s a PC exclusive title, and will only run on VR?

Yes, we understand the deep controversy that surrounds Half-Life: Alyx. But look at it another way; making the game PC exclusive also allowed it to be the best possible version of itself. The VR requirement on the other hand, we do find a touch oppressive.

Either way, this is, without question, the best possible VR experience you can have. It might be a touch costly actually getting to play it, but to call it a worthwhile experience is an understatement.

Disco Elysium

It doesn’t get much more PC than Disco Elysium. The vast, vast majority of the game is reading, making choices, and otherwise getting invested in a story. A few choices will have to be made, but for the most part there isn’t much difference between this, and settling in with a great novel.

There is virtually no way that a game like this can fly well in a graphics-focused console world, which is exactly why it is so fantastic that a platform as diverse as the PC exists. Because, as it turns out, Disco Elysium is also one of the best experiences you can have playing a video game.

Yes, we are aware that Disco Elysium technically is going to be release on consoles eventually in 2021, but we’d also like to point out that the game is very clearly aimed at the PC market.
