If that is me...And maybe is is maybe it isn't, but in any event, Capouel123, there are a darn sight more people without than with, and because they are without they can't buy and because they can't buy PC games sales drop and because PC games sales drop, so less money is made and so less money is made so less chance of PC gaming being around for long. So I would care very much, even if you 'have the card' that at least some games come out for those that 'don't have the card', or we're all in trouble.

Really, I like the effort you did here but you can sum this up in just a single line of words:

Crysis, Spore, Unreal Tournament 2007, Bioshock, Supreme Commander, Command and Conquer 3 ... No need to look further, unless you like to throw away games rather quickly.

Looks like spacesim genre is finally not going to die with all games based on FreeSpace Open engine. Go to their site www.hard-light.net , it looks great.

Back to PC gaming from consoles because of a lack of depth in games, especially of the RTS genre. I just got a new PC and am looking forward to the wealth of good games coming out within the year or so.

At the top of a very long list is:

Spore

Hellgate London

Battlestations Midway

World in Conflict

Warhammer Online

Stalker

Huxley

Crysis

Savage 2

Supreme Commander

That is a consolidated list. There are too many I am following. PC gaming is doing fine.

Been looking forward 2 Spore for about 6 months now (feels like 2 years).  I'm gonna have to upgrade first tho lol.

Athlon 1.66Ghz

Geforce 6200 256Mb

512Mb DDR

40Gb HDD  (lol)

Lasted me a year tho and plays Oblivion with reasonable graphics.

Can't wait for 2007, well done on all that research. For me i won't cange from pc to consol just because of the controls. Once windows vista comes out, you will see that pc gamers will dominate xbox gamers in fps. Why because its easier to aim with a mouse then with a remote.

Well windows vista is gonna help in that section. For instance if you have a dual processor the first processor will work on gameplay and the second one on graphics. I doubt microsoft is gonna let the pc fall behind.... And if it does i will move to apple. Mabey game developers should look at the possibilities of creating games for that system... I mean you can fit x3 512 mb graphic cards, 16 gigs of ram, x2 720 gig HDD's, and 4 processors... All i know consols can't capture gameplay like a pc

Don't be too optimistic, remember what PC publishers are like! I will start a thread next Xmas talking about all the games that didn't come out at all in 2007, ones that are still due in 2008 and ones that have been cancelled altogether or are only coming out on console. I reckon that will be about half the games in this list.

Holy shet, 10 minutes ago this thread was at page 30... damn.

Anyways, great work with the list, you convinced me with the second RTS game, the one with the nuclear explosion, looks like it's going to be great. And thanks for opening my eyes and make me realize i need an upgrade HARD.

HAHAHA, just look at my specs at this moment

Processor= Intel pentium 4 2.8 gigs
Memory= Kingston 512 megs DDR 333
Video= Nvidia geforceFX 5200.
HDD= Maxtor 80 gigs.

A piece of crap isn't it? jejejeje

You should add Two Worlds to the RPG list for 2007. Not that many people know about this game, here I'll help spread the word. http://www.2-worlds.com/

what type of processor slots do you have? What kind of Gfx card slot you have? If you can tell us these things, we can advise your father to get slightly better hardware so you will be able to enjoy a lot of pc games for a long time.

[QUOTE="vVoLVeRiNe"]PC games are great but doesn't it suck you have to pretty much keep ur PC up to date and spend much much more to play good games like these?

iono much about video cards but for example when i got mine nvidia geforce 4 with 64mb it was the biggest thing and then not even a year passes and there is 128 mb and games require better graphics etc and mine sucks so i have to play the newer games on low quality so it isnt choppy

i think ps3 will be great and wont have 2 spend so much for atleast 3-5 years

WRONG!

EXCELLENT JOB! Most professional magazines won't list all of those games. A real goldmine.
Gamespot should create a new section besdide previews with just lists of upcoming titles for each platform, as you did for the PC.
I had no idea so many great games were scheduled for 2007! Of course most of them won't be there until 2008, or will never be released, but it's still a lot of good stuff to keep an eye on.

Adrian werner,

Will Grand Theft Auto Liberty / Vice City Stories and upcoming GTA 4 will release on P.C ? Any new GTA titles being made for P.C also ?

I like GTA games but its ages since GTA San Andreas came to P.C. I'm missing GTA series for P.C.

The only problem is will these games work for the average PC? Some of these games look as if they require an amzaing PC with a great graphic card.

Quake wars has been said to have the same system requirements as Doom 3. Which were steep at the time, but shouldn't be a big problem at the moment.

Crysis, although you wouldn't be able to have the full feeling. It has been said to run on a wide number of PC's and still look better than Far cry.

Spore, From the creator of the Sims, so ofcourse

about the others i'm not yet 100% certain, but i hope they learn something from this year. So they will optimize and scale their games accordingly. :)
