Let’s be honest. Regardless of your favorite gaming platform, everyone’s a winner during the Electronic Entertainment Expo. A million new games. Fresh ways to play. And more than enough content to tide everyone over for the next year. But according to one gaming authority, no one was more blessed by E3 2010 than PC players.
“PC gaming’s victory [at E3] seems like a no brainer,” writes Tim Edwards of PC Gamer. “We had the best games.” To back it up, the booster names Star Wars: The Old Republic, Crysis 2, and Civilization 5 as standout exclusives that “show a level of polish and grace that has been sorely missing from PC gaming for years.”
Still not convinced? “It’s not just about PC exclusives,” says Edwards. “There are, at best, just a couple of console exclusives that aren’t available on PC. But everything else – absolutely everything else – incredible games like Deus Ex, XCOM, and Call of Duty, will arrive on our platform, with better, smoother graphics, smarter online support, for lower cost, and playable at your convenience on as many machines as you own through digital download platforms.”
You’re preaching to the choir, Edwards. But we like your enthusiasm. In any case, it looks like it will be another exciting year for PC games.
But you already knew that.
