With so many PC games released day-in and day-out—more than 1,300 titles have already been released on Steam this year alone—sniffing out the ones that are actually worth your time is more difficult than ever. We want to help.
PCWorld covers a wide world of PC gaming news, previews, and reviews, but sifting through a sea of old articles is a headache when you just want to know which cool PC game you should buy right now. Enter Steam's recent revamp. The 'Discovery Update' overhauled the interface and added a wealth of new tools, all designed to make it easier to help you find games you actually want to play—including the ability to follow "curator" pages of game recommendations from sources you trust.
I think you see where this is going.
Yes, you can follow our official "PCWorld recommends" list on Steam now, meticulously hand-crafted by PCWorld's game guys, Hayden Dingman and Brad Chacos. We're still in the process of polishing it up, but the page already packs several picks for some of our favorite games in recent memory. (Far Cry 3 Blood Dragon FTW!) It's an eclectic mix, to be sure, but one thing's consistent: These are all absolutely tremendous games.
You'll find links to full PCWorld reviews for many of the games, naturally. We want this page to live, though, so expect to see oddball recommendations that aren't tied to reviews from Brad and Hayden every now and again, and for the list to be updated whenever a killer new game captures our hearts and minds. We want to help you find great games.
Let's take this journey together, folks. Follow PCWorld's curator page on Steam and let the games begin.
