The 20 essential PC and Mac games of 2012

CVG: As we compiled this master-list it became apparent that most of these games are put together by relatively small teams. The best PC and Mac games tend not to be the work of vast corporations with millions of dollars in reserve, but the product of passionate developers, often working for free, without publisher support.

That's what's great about an open platform like PC; anyone can make a popular game. In fact, some of them aren't even games at all, but ambitious mods for other titles. The big publishers, for obvious reasons, won't take risks on games that don't have obvious mainstream appeal, but they can still shine on the home desktop.

CVG has compiled a list of the twenty brightest stars on PC and Mac, listed below in no particular order. Be aware that there's two key PC games that have not yet been released; Hawken and Hotline Miami, which are both deserving of your attention in the coming months.

Holy CRAP..........that's a pretty darn good list!

Looks Like CVG actually has a PC Gamer who also doubles as a journalist! Good Job!

ONE problem: Scratch off War of The Roses and replace it with Chivalry Medieval Warfare.

CMW is WAAAAY better than WotR!

Yea, pretty good list. One thing you'll notice is just how diverse the library is along with very affordable software.

Pretty good list but where the heck is PlanetSide 2!

MrAnderson1435d ago

no planetside 2, natural selection 2, or chivalry, yet you include war of the roses(a crap version of chivalry) and seriously put dear ester there?

Agreed... Planetside 2 should be there. Also, Little Inferno is highly addictive and very interesting even though it's not exclusive to PC/Mac/Linux.

Well it got my vote for the next Steam deal. Who honestly prefers driving trains or flying jets to plowing fields?
