The PC kind of struggled this year, but was a great year for indie games. There weren’t many heavy hitters like Crysis or any other PC exclusive AAA game. What we saw were great indie games that pushed themselves beyond what big budget games can do and even crafted whole new genres. Usually, the best PC game has some of the best graphics of the year, fantastic gameplay, rich multiplayer, and something that only the PC can offer.
The Stanley Parable
You may say that it’s unfair that a Half-Life 2 mod gone stand alone is the best game. The Stanley Parable actually isn’t much of a game but an interactive narrative. The story is so strange yet so grounded that you don’t want to stop playing. The fact that every path you take is narrated and adjusted accordingly is awesome. This game won by sheer story driven elements and a unique narrative.
