21 Great PC Games You’ll Never Play on a Console

Video games are big business. Stereotypical young males aren't the only market--for example, it's not uncommon for commuters to spend their train ride home with a Nintendo 3DS or an iPad. At home, they might unwind with a few rounds of Call of Duty while sitting on the sofa. But if you are addicted to your 3DS or your Xbox 360, I have to admit that as a PC-game fan, I'm sorry to hear it. Console and handheld game systems haven't always been the most popular platforms. PC titles once ruled the gaming world.

Anticipating Stalker 2, REALLY hope it doesn't get fu**ed like Crysis 2 did

have some of my bubble gum :) then we can be friends :)

Some of those were odd choices which could've been replaced by more deserving titles such as CompanyOfHeroes, CounterStrike, Trackmania, RedOrchestra, KillingFloor, and ARMA (among others)

CounterStrike has already shown it's face on consoles.

@silent: I know, I had it. Don't see why i got a disagree.

SilentNegotiator2486d ago

It was on the original xbox.

BumpFrankie2486d ago

The disagree was probably a 12 year old kid who only thinks of the 360 or the PS3 when "console" gets thrown around.

I have to agree and disagree. It was CounterStrike, but in name only. It didn't look, feel, or play like CounterStrike at all. Even the maps were completely different.

I agree as that list is mostly ODD as my first thought was X Series, Aion, Lineage, Entropia Universe, Eve Online, Total War and Arma.

Actually next console gen i could see many of the titles they listed or their sequels being ported to console as the PS4/720 will finally be powerful enough for mainstream PC Devs.

More MMO's will be on next gen consoles for sure but with the increase power of the PC many PC devs will continue to make games that consoles just can't do.

P.S. Don't worry about STALKER 2, GSC Game World has said many thousand times that the PC is the lead platform and it will not be gimped for consoles in NO way shape or form....check out their Facebook page for more info as they talk to fans daily.

Crytek also said many times that Crysis 2 pc was not a console port which it obviously turned out to be.

Gotta admit im pretty cautious about being excited for stalker 2. the first games had a great concept, and awesome game world, but were all such a broken mess that it was just too hard for me to really get into. i still can't play COP because of the ridiculous stuttering problem for which i havent found any fix yet.

As far as im concerned GSC has done nothing to earn any more of my money

Trackmania is on the Wii as well

If a game doesn't make me want to go build a pc then I don't care if it's on consoles or not. And...

starchild2486d ago

Yeah, so what?

I can honestly say that most console exclusives don't interest me that much.

I don't know why, but many console exclusives feel like simplistic games for young audiences. The smart and interesting games tend to be multiplats anyway.

I do like games like Uncharted 3 and Gears of War 3 simply because they are very well done, cinematic, and fun.

But many console exclusives are just meh to me. That is, they could give me some enjoyment if I didn't have anything else to play, but they aren't the games I most enjoy playing.

The platform that gives the best experience with multiplatform games will always be my favorite platform. More than 90% of games are multiplatform. The fact that the PC also has its own great exclusives is just icing on the cake to me.

Thanks for your thoughts. I'm sure someone will appreciate them.

bumnut2486d ago

Your 1 bubble looks lonely, +1

HaHa_Ostrich2486d ago

That is really hit or miss list.
Ok, great MMOS aside, there are some really old games on that list. Not that they are no good, just not that much relevant. Also, I heard Crysis is in the works for consoles.
And Second life? Really?
