10 Must Have Games If You're New to PC Gaming

If you’re venturing into the PC arena for a new gaming experience and bought or have a good system, here are some must have games to try your system out on. (Minecraft, PC, Portal 2, Terraria, The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim, The Sims 3, The Witcher 2, The Witcher 2: Assassin of Kings)

No TF2? Free to play, great game for people new to PC cus it's still fun even if you're terrible.

I've lured at least a dozen of my friends into PC gaming through TF2 over the last four years.

TF2 is a great game, no doubt. But the author was obviously limited to 10 games.

It's hard to fit in every single great PC game out there with just 10 slots.

Article even says it's not a list of the only good PC games out there. Hell, it's not even a top 10 list.

Still makes no sense to leave out a game as accessible and fun as TF2 out of a list of the supposed "10 Must Have Games If You're New to PC Gaming"

@Pandamobile

By you adding "the" in front of "10" it adds a whole new meaning making a list conclusive as the only ones that are must haves. IE: Not what the article was suggesting.

The article says clearly, there are many other great PC games not mentioned.

Very very very hard to limit this to ten.......and how the hell is Half Life 2 or Deus Ex not on the list?

Also they should have at least added a Mod. Mods are so very important to PC Gaming.

You just answered your question when you said, "Very very very hard to limit this to ten"

A lot of great games obviously got left off of list, doesn't mean that the author thinks any less of them though.

Edit: Also, modding was mentioned in the article if you read it all.
