The gaming industry is a busy place – it keeps growing, with new games being released like clockwork. That can make it difficult to keep track of worthwhile releases and hits – the games that no PC gamer should miss. With our list of the 30 best PC games we’re not just looking at what’s good, we’re also regularly updating you on what people are enjoying right now, and not so much the classics from 20 years ago. That way we ensure you’ve got easy access to a lot of great games and always something new to try.


If you’re completely new to PC gaming or simply need recommendations for a new machine, we can also help you with the best setups, whether you’re a builder, want to play on the go or like to buy your PC out of the box. Simply check our list of high-end gaming PC builds, the best gaming laptops or the best gaming PCs out of the box.

The best PC games for May 2021 – top 30 list begins on next page 

Plenty of recent releases haven’t quite made our top 30 list – which starts on the next page – but are well worth having a look at. If you want to stay on top with new releases or our top 30 PC games list isn’t quite for you, here are some recent top picks.

Days Gone

Best PC games - Days Gone

In our Days Gone review of the PS4 version, we’ve described the game as 'scrappy but satisfying', essentially a game that’s less about the tension of being alone with a zombie, but regularly encountering waves of zombies to the point of overwhelm. As you travel through Oregon as Deacon St. John to take on 'freakers', you have to watch your inventory closely, whether that’s weapons or petrol for your motorbike. Often a hasty retreat is your only option, as the freakers sure are a scrappy bunch, too.


Days Gone is interesting for bringing a game with a mildly Last Of Us-esque approach to an open-world setting, and with this PC port, this is a safe bet if you love your games long with plenty of tasks to complete and large-scale battles to get through.

Grindstone

Formerly an Apple Arcade exclusive, Grindstone is Capy’s take on a colour-matching puzzler. You’ll immediately notice the eye-popping visuals, as you don’t match something as simple as crystals or fruits, but raze your way through rows of squishy monsters called creeps. But creeps don’t idly sit by and watch their brethren being decimated – angry creeps fight back, and a variety of enemies such as cursed skeletons, vine monsters and creep brothers openly attack you as soon as you get near.


The environment isn’t the friendliest either – you fight your way around pools of acid, lava flows and assorted sharp obstacles, it becomes clear that while your hero Jorge can dish out, he can’t really take it, resulting in some nice friction and strategic gameplay. This is a really fun game. Lots of care went into its presentation, the soundtrack is a banger, and it’s always fun to play a round or two, a great addition to any puzzle and/or colour-matching aficionado’s collection.

Erica

Another former PS4 exclusive, this is a modern FMV (full motion video) game. While you can easily uncover the mystery at the core of Erica, this is a game that really retains what’s so charming about FMV – the idea that you’re directly taking control over a film and the real people in it.


To help Erica uncover the secret of how her father died, you need to quickly make choices and lead her away from danger as best as you can – it’s often thrilling, a thick sense of unease permeating every scene, and the story can go several different ways based on your choices.

The Wild At Heart

Best PC Games - The Wild at Heart

The Wild At Heart is a cute, hand-drawn adventure with a central mechanic reminiscent of the Pikmin games. As two children you venture through a mysterious magical forest, you meet many strange creatures and solve environmental puzzles.


The visuals suggest a chill, magical journey and that’s exactly what The Wild At Heart delivers. If you’re looking for something with a leisurely, friendly atmosphere and equally chill gameplay, The Wild At Heart is the perfect game.

Knockout City

It’s dodgeball! In the streets! With other people! Knockout City could stealthily become your next favourite battle royale. It’s vibrant and responsive and just lots of fun, partly because of how easy it feels to start out and become surprisingly good at it. Even then you can stick with it for a good while, thanks to a good variety of modes.


It’s still hard to say how competitive it is, but that can be a good thing – Knockout City feels like it’s absolutely possible to just play a few games here and there instead of signing your whole life away to keep up with it.

Solasta: Crown of the Magister

Best PC Games - Solasta: Crown of the Magister

Solasta offers something many roleplaying fans have been waiting for – a faithful adaptation of Dungeons and Dragons 5e rules for a video game. There are many enjoyable CRPGs out there, but they all play it fast and easy with pen and paper rule sets. Even Divinity: Original Sin 2, a game that has more than earned its place in our top 30 list, largely does its own thing, and Baldur’s Gate 3, currently in Early Access, looks to be largely the same.


Fresh out of Early Access, Solasta offers the truest 5e experience available right now, and while the character models don’t look all that great and this is squarely aimed at those who want to have a video game DnD experience or learn about 5e that way, it isn’t for everyone – mostly because 5e rules themselves are far from perfect. But anyone who got excited at the words “faithful 5e adaptation” will know this and have a good time with what Solasta delivers.
