PC Gaming continues to innovate and provide new RPG gems in in the sea of AAA micro-transaction open world borefest.

Disco Elysium is a detective RPG with focus on story telling and choices. Very cool artstyle, story and gameplay.

The game has been gaining a huge critics and Steam users acclaim. 9.6 on IGN, 9.2 on PC Gamer, 95% on Steam.

When consoles will be able to get cool exclusives like this instead of their walking simulators like Uncharted LOL

I only got to play 10 minutes of it last night, but I can already tell that I'll love it.

Still, I wish this gets a Switch port. I'm finding it increasingly difficult to commit to long-term RPGs on my PC or PS4.

This game (Chernobylite) also released today and it looks pretty damn good. Granted it is a Early Access title; the reviews for it have been quite good.

Meh. Overrated indie trash.

Can’t trust IGN and other sites that review PC games when they give trash like Celeste and Gone Home 10/10’s.

This is like a 6/10 “game” as in it’s more like a “Digital Graphic Novel.”

LOL hermits.

Does the game have any combat? It looks more like an adventure game than an RPG. Too much reading for me anyway. I will be passing on this one.

This reminds me, Return of The Obra Dinn should be showing up on Switch soon. Looking forward to that.

Hopefully Disco detective gets a console port.

@BassMan: Oh, it's definitely an RPG, even without much combat.

The game is apparently loaded with content that heavily reacts to your particular skills/talents/whatever, and the skill window is probably the most exciting thing I've seen in an RPG for years.

I also love how they made meaningless equipment meaningful, like how tight pants reduce your savoir faire and increase your electrochemistry.

Anyway, this has jumped to the top of my gaming priority list. The opening has completely sold me on the game.

I have never really been into the hardcore RPGs myself. There are certain elements of RPGs that I like (story, player choice, etc.), but I am not really into all the systems behind the scenes. I don't like spending too much time in inventories, character trees, etc.. The Witcher 3 and Skyrim is about as in depth as I like them. I also don't like turn based combat. So, it limits the amount of RPGs that I play.

Came here to see what the game was about because I saw it on Steam when I started it up and nearly threw up all over my computer. WHAT THE HELL DID THEY DO TO THE FORUMS!?

It only took them like 5 years, but they finally made the forums into a big comment section under a video review.

But reading more about this game, it's going on the wishlist. So unique.

If that happens, I wonder if PC's 100+ AAA/AA lead will remain for this gen at both MC and GS. Yeah, it probably will.

Of course it will...after PC, otherwise it would have died even before it began due to cost of entry and no audience. You know as many devs said in the past PC gamers are more likely to try new experiences than console noobs that play the same 'Press X to win sequels' over and over again.

Hence why most popular PC games is free2play lootbox filled games like heartstone, CSGO, LoL, DoTA and even paid games PUBG. Not to mention falling for scams like Star Citizen.

Too bad we console owners get to play really amazing titles from really high quality 1st party developers and not playing F2P games on PC. Too bad.

We don't have to beg, they'll port it and beg us to buy it, that's all the PC market is anymore, a testbed for mass distribution.

Unless it flops, which it probably will, in that case it will stay "PC Exclusive."

@ZombieKiller7: Oh yes because console gamers buy top down complex CRPGs in droves. It's currently a top seller on Steam with 2,800 people concurrently playing as I'm writing this. Not really a flop.

Yes, too bad that you're playing your shitty press 'X' to win sequels from overrated 1st party devs whose only saving grace is presentation over and over again. You will never know variety or quality that's why new experiences only debut on PC anymore.

I wouldn't mind either. The more people have access to the game the better. Why would I have a problem if other people also get to play it?

The only instance where I have an issue is when devs try to dumb down the gameplay to broaden/accommodate consoles and neglect the original audience. Looking at you Crysis 2.

Fortnite and Apex Legends are #1 and 3 respectively on the most played Xbox games. Sadly, Sony does not rank the most played games on their console. Regardless... Your point regarding F2P and PC quite handily applies to consoles as well.

Nothing wrong with F2P as long as the game is good and the F2P elements are done right. It's just a payment model. There are several that are more fun than anything on consoles.

But I do hate MTX when done poorly (which is often). You do know B2P games can have insane MTX too right (which is also often)? Which is often even worse, double the pay. On top of XBL or PSN fees if you like to play garbage online gaming of consoles (Big RIP).

Most games come to PC on release date. Due to console exclusives (1 Console + PC only) PC gets the absolute highest number of AAA-AA video games.

Are you just trolling or something? If not you really seem like a bitter sore loser about this gen and all.

PC gamers tend to put up a fight in an attempt to gain something of value, whereas console gamers will typically take whatever is given to them. It's just the way it is. That's why you guys pay to use your own internet, while we don't.
