With all the craziness of the next generation-console transition, it's nice to have a PC. No worrying about about having to buy a PS4 of Xbox One to have graphic supremacy.... you have a PC!

Here's a comprehensive list of the very best PC games USgamer has reviewed over the last year or so - plus personal recommendations from the USG team.

Shovel Knight



Shovel Knight is a loving homage to an era we left behind long ago. The graphics, gameplay, and soundtrack are all pitch-perfect for an NES game... all you're missing is the original cartridge. Yacht Club Games has crafted an amazing experience from beginning to end.


Need for Speed



Rivals: Need for Speed: Rivals takes some of the best features from prior franchise entries and combines them with a seamless single-multiplayer mode to create an absolutely terrific, utterly bonkers race-and-chase game that looks and sounds as good as it drives. (PS4 review: PC version is the same)


Watch Dogs



Watch Dogs combines an astonishingly detailed world, a gripping storyline, creative game mechanics, a myriad of missions and activities, and improvisational tactical sandbox gameplay to create a truly next-generation open world game. Phenomenal. No other word for it. (PS4 review: PC version is identical (or slightly better if you have a good system)


South Park: Stick of Truth



South Park: Stick of Truth: Without a doubt the finest TV-to-video game adaptation for a very long time. South Park is a great RPG, a faithful adaptation of its source material -- and a game that knows when to stop before its shtick becomes tiresome.


Hearthstone



Hearthstone is easy to play, yet it delivers an astonishing breadth and depth of strategy. If you're looking for a fascinating, involving and highly addictive cerebral gaming experience, there are few finer than this. (iOS review: Hearthstone is the same on every system)
