PC gaming has been around for decades, and today there are many, many people playing on Windows. Just take PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds (PUBG), for example. This title recently amassed more than a million concurrent players. That's one game. It's a staggering statistic, but everyone has a favorite game they keep returning to.
This is a difficult question for me to answer, personally. I have many games that hold my attention without issue. Take a fully modded Skyrim install, and I'll inject hundreds of hours. Ark: Survival Evolved is also another game I can pour much time into. Then there's PUBG, League of Legends, Stellaris, and X3: Albion Prelude, just to get started.
If I had to select one, it would be Stellaris simply because it offers me almost exactly what I want from a space strategy game. That and it now offers fully kitted out synthetic races.
Everyone has a favorite
Community ambassador JosIah93 started up a thread asking this very question.
It's an interesting discussion because everyone approaches gaming differently. Some value gameplay, while others look only at the story or a specific feature. Two people may have the same favorite, but for different reasons. We want to know what you think. Head on over to our community forum and join the discussion.
