So, PC has ... 4 nice RPG's, and a host of strategy games, so many they have become generic by now, i mean i HARDLY find anything new to see in most strategy games today

And those rpg's are not the best too, The Witcher, Hellgate, Dragon Age look faboulous, but Silverfall is not THAT stunning and all others are either online craps or mediocre titles, when Wii has Zelda Tp, xbox 360 has Fable 2, Mass Effect 1-2-3, Lost Odyssey, Jade Empire 2, Blue Dragon, Infinite Undiscovery etc, and ALL the best PC rpg's like Oblivion, Two worlds etc, and PS3 has FF13 in 2008 and White Knight

So, PC falls really short in rpg's, but i saw one adventure that i loved in there, if it does come from monkey island creators, the art seems great too, i will have to try that one, thank god it will not need DX10 to run !!!

All in all PC is useless for now, until the first EXCLUSIVE fully DX10 RPG comes along, in 3-4 years or more

Take your opinion to system wars. Not everyone cares about RPGs as much as you do, to most of us here there are several reasons to be a PC gamer in 2007.

Hahahaha i got the link from a system wars thread, and i though was system wars too !!! Anyway, indeed if you love Adventures and strategy games, PC is BY MILES the best thing, too bad consoles do not get good adventures

first of all..don't troll second.. PC upcoming line-up of RPGs kills every other platform easily. 360 can't even begin to compare. Please leave and stop polluting this thread

Games are begining to look so amazing. But, i do believe that there is not enough games compared to the ammount of new video power. it seems that because pirating is so big that companies go toward consoles and stay away from PC.

 There must be a way to stop all this rubbish!

like the SLOWNESS OF THESE FORUMS LIKE WOW!! get some speed on these puppies..i shouldnt be able to go for a 2 hour drive then come back and have this crap still loading.
#312 Posted by FootFetish24 (736 posts) -

#315 Posted by daweguy (177 posts) -
Oh my god. Where shall I get all this time to even try half of these great games? lol
#316 Posted by Egamer22 (133 posts) -
crysis, quake wars, command and conquer 3
#317 Posted by zaman48 (699 posts) -

if only i had the money to get at least half of those games... wont happen for a while, need to get a new gpu first.

I CAN afford Supreme Commander, Command and Conquer 3, and Vanguard tho :)

#318 Posted by Nablith- (5 posts) -
So, pretty much amazing. Counsels are getting too expensive, for just games. They are trying to incorporate media in them, but it will still not be a computer. I mean, you still can't use your Xbox360 and post in the Gamespot Forums. :lol:
#319 Posted by Khamoon (41 posts) -
Gotta say, 2006 was a weak year, all this talk of wait untill last quarter of the year....well all those hyped games were just ok, nothing more. 2007 has 4 or 5 promising titles so far, lets hope they will deliver unlike the ones in 2006.

I thought I was sure I was getting a PS3.. but some of these games are making me reconsider and upgrading my PC or even making a new one :/ I love anything with space genre, Enosta looks beautiful and space force and infinity.. OMG!!!
#324 Posted by metalhead004 (419 posts) -
Once again, looking good. Lots of big names. Should be a year to remember.
#325 Posted by CJSpangler (347 posts) -
Yeh it is truelly amazing how much is coming out next year. Personally I anticipating hellgate london. However, I may try some of the other RPGs since they a lot of them look good. hellgate should be a nice hack and slash while some of the RPGs look fantastic from a gameplay perspective. Personally I am gonna stay away from the MMOGs for the most part. The pirate games look interesting but I will buy on reviews after they come out, not gonna take a leap and get them right away. Also I will most likely pick up Medievel Total War 2 as well sometime after Xmas. Heard some greathings and I really enjoyed the first one.

Reason? Gaming made us,made the world a decent place where we all can get together and express ourselves,2007 brings a new age and that is the reason we should look forward to it and worth being a gamer.

It's good to see this thing stickied... I remember before it was that finding it was a pain, but this list is very well planned out and comprehensive. Not to mention it has far more games than I would have thought, or have heard of. Very nice job :D

Even when it gets un-sticked, you can always find links to 2006 and 2007(and after E3 to 2008 :) ) in " PC Games Discussion Help Thread" and this one is always stickied :)

#333 Posted by OneEarth (102 posts) -
While this thread is as great as PC gaming in 2007, there is only one thing I'd like to suggest. There are lots of games in this thread & remembering each of them to look out in Gamespot for detailed information is almost impossible. It would have been much better if you edited the names of those games as a 'link' which connects to the Gamespot's page of that game so by clicking on the name, anyone can easily view detailed information about that game.

Like clicking on Crysis takes us to the Gamespot's PC page of Crysis.

It's my be hard work editing all those names. Nevermind, you can do it in "Reasons why it's worth to be a PC gamer in 2008" thread :wink:

Awsome ... I can't wait ... Thanks for the list mate ... You instantly own.
#348 Posted by Humorguy_basic (2338 posts) -
It looks like a great list on the surface, but I do have worries:

Firstly, a lot of Alpha titles are listed. So some will never be released or at best be 2008 games. Secondly I am pessimistic that all the console games mentioned will get PC conversions, in fact I will be surprised if more than 1 or 2 do. Thirdly I am worried that too many will require high end PCs, (ie Vista and a DX10 card) which, in my opinion, was the main reason for a PC games sales decline this year of between 10.5 and 22%, and a decline over the last 5 years of over 50%. Because most average gamers are just not willing to keep their PC's updated, at the cost of £/$100's every year, as often as publishers demand with their games, and so they move to console, join the ever increasing ranks of retro gamers (fastest growing 'genre' in PC gaming! And with the Wii and backward compatibility with the 360 and PS3, maybe console too!), or just walk away from gaming altogether, as it's getting too expensive (That goes for PS3 too!).

I also don't like that so many are so similar, especially in the RTS section. Why does the subject matter have to be so narrow, that can't be good for PC gaming?!
#349 Posted by Capouel123 (127 posts) -
Stop fronting on PC because you dont have a strong enough video card! PC rules! thats it! BOOM! nothing else is to be said!

My only reason why it's worth being a PC gamer in 2007: Counter-Strike.
