I’ve always been a gamer. Ever since I got my Nintendo Game & Watch with the Fire Attack game sometime in the late eighties, I’ve loved gaming! I’ve mostly played on PC or mobile devices, and with a few years break, I’ve always played on PC’s I’ve built myself. So here are a few game recommendations for PC of games I’ve played in the last year.
I won’t list the AAA titles, which would be too obvious and recommendations for that you can get from a hundred other blogs, magazines or YouTube’ers.
This is the oldest of the three games I’m recommending for PC, but it’s definitively the most action filled! Created by a Swedish indie game developer, it’s set in a cyberpunk future on another space system where the company running the place have lost control and anarchy rules. It’s a top-down shooter and I love it!
You can actually do Couch Co-Up in this game, and they have a thriving official Discord server if you need help or want to be a part of their community.
This game is so amazing, the picture on the top of this blogpost is of my oldest daughter that have just started playing Stray. I love the atmosphere in the futuristic cyberpunk world and that it’s this strange game where you feel like it’s an open world but isn’t. You run around as a cat with no HUD, no maps and you only dialog through a robot-drone that somehow can communicate with you. It’s amazing! I loved the ending, and I’m hoping for a sequel.
It’s a bit on the short side, but that just makes it easier for more people to actually finish and experience the whole game.
High on Life
This is the newest game I have, and it’s a first-person shooter even though I usually don’t like FPS’s that much.
It’s not a large game, and the gaming isn’t really that good from an FPS perspective, but the graphics, the atmosphere, and the twisted 18+ humor is just fantastic. I loved every second of it, except the end that was a bit anti-climactic.
I can’t remember a game I was this hooked on except Stray, for many many years.
How I played the games
I’ve been playing The Ascent and Stray with a controller, while I played High on Life with keyboard and mouse (as any FPS should be played) on the PC I’ve written a blog post about before.
None of these three games are brand new either, except High on Life, so you should be able to get them at a fair price as well.
Happy gaming 🙂
