We’re ramping up to unveil our overall E3 2013 Game of the Show winner, but first we’re breaking down which games shone brightest on each platform this year. The PC has by far the biggest selection, as pretty much everything that isn’t a Microsoft, Nintendo, or Sony platform exclusive will come out here as well, so there’s a ton to choose from.

Here are the play4you picks for this year’s best-in-show PC games


Best PC Game: Titanfall

Titanfall looks absolutely spectacular, and the astonishing, breathless pace of the demo battle Respawn showed left us slackjawed. The smooth transition from jetpacking sci-fi soldier combat to 40-foot-tall mech suit slugfests and then back again is enough to make shooter fans’ mouths water - that constantly changing tempo might just be the shot in the arm the genre needs.

One of the biggest surprises is that Titanfall runs on a modified version of Valve’s Source engine, which is right at home on the PC. Because of the existing modding tools, that potentially opens up a world of possibilities (though nothing’s been confirmed on that front). Also, due to the Xbox One’s dedicated server multiplayer architecture, we’re hoping to see the same treatment on the PC version.

Best Reason to Upgrade Your PC: The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt

The Witcher 3's seamless open world and stunning visuals may be coming to next-gen consoles as well, but CDProjekt Red is building Wild Hunt for PC. When it comes to serving the hardcore PC crowd, CDProjekt Red has a proud history of repaying loyalty with the best looking, best supported version of its games. You'll get the most from its spectacular particle effects, detailed environments, and terrific character models if you're willing to put your rig over the top. Plus, CD Projekt has confirmed that Wild Hunt owners will receive free updates on PC -- and if its add-on content is half as good as it was for The Witcher and The Witcher 2, playing on the PC will pay dividends.

Total war: rome 2

Best PC Exclusive: Total War: Rome II

It’s obvious why Total War: Rome II is a PC exclusive: it simply couldn’t work anywhere else. To this day, grand strategy and real-time strategy games are a big part of what defines PC gaming as a unique platform. Rome II continues that tradition by bringing back pretty much everything we love about the classic 2004 original and pairs it with magnificent scale and detail that take advantage of PC hardware and the mouse and keyboard interface.

The E3 demo showcased a battle on the Nile, where Caesar faced Ptolemy. Flaming boulders and chariots smash through legions, war elephants barge across the field, while trebuchets rain down heavy projectiles. And for the first time, we see a naval battle playing out on the same map. Seeing it all come together - particularly from the perspective of the new over-the-shoulder camera that puts you right on the battlefield - is a sight to behold.
