In Pictures: The 21 PC games that matter most, right now
Spring (southern hemisphere) is here, and PC gaming is about to heat up. Starting with Borderlands 2 (pictured here), there's a bevy of new games coming to PCs this fall, and many of them look good enough to merit serious attention. From complex tactical strategy games to fast-paced, modern military shooters and everything in between, chances are there's a game coming out soon that will be perfect entertainment for all your holiday "down time." Have a look at this gallery, and tell us what you think in the comments section. Did we forget any critical nuggets of awesomeness?
The original Borderlands was a sleeper hit in 2009, earning critical and commercial acclaim for offering players an addictive first-person combat experience that could be completed by up to four players cooperating together. Borderlands 2 seems to offer plenty more of what made the first game famous, including plenty of weird space monsters, complex skill and weapon upgrade systems, and plenty of frenetic action—all in a tongue-in-cheek mashup of future tech and old-fashioned spaghetti western sensibilities.
