This year has been a very good one in terms of games for PC players. There have been superb single-player stories as well as some who didn’t quite make our hair blow back in amazement, but this article is dedicated to the former. Herewith the list of the finest PC games from 2017:

1. Dishonored: Death of the Outsider

Dishonored: Death of the Outsider is a standalone expansion for the franchise proving why Dishonored is one of the best new franchises of late. It moved away from the protagonist of the first two games, Corvo, bringing in a brand-new story to an area unseen so far. It also proved that the setup, that of supernatural stealth in a class society that is oppressive, can work over the longer-term as well. This game is perfect for games with a lust for overthrowing dishonorable dictators by means of paranormal powers, and although it's completely different to mobile pokies, it's just as thrilling.

2. XCOM 2: War of the Chosen

The success of XCOM, the X-com of yesteryear reboot, has been a marvellous thing to behold. Not only has it provided a brand-new, contemporary take on the strategy that is almost exclusive to the series, it has also managed to bring the series to the a new audience. While the base XCOM 2 game was not released in 2017, the War of the Chosen expansion is big enough to warrant making it onto this list. It builds on XCOM in every way, and gamers will be hunting aliens in tenser, more challenging, and ultimately more rewarding ways thanks to it. If you hate aliens and have a penchant for battlefield strategy, then this game is for you!

3. Resident Evil 7: Biohazard

Resident Evil 7: Biohazard is a gloriously grimy and ominously oppressive game which serves as evidence of lessons learned. It looks into the series’ history in order to find the black heart of this B-movie franchise, and scalps from the terrors of video games have managed to follow in its wake. This game is hugely more intimate and earthy than the gunfest the franchise hinted at becoming, and provides a really rich, amazingly atmospheric, and crazier chill that becomes silly enough to ensure that you are having fun. Horror fans who don’t have an issue with blood and gore will love it!

4. What Remains of Edith Finch

Giant Sparrow, the developer of What Remains of Edith Finch, has demonstrated an incredible level of skill throughout the journey Edith has undertaken, taking clever hold of the interactivity potential of the game with manifold tales dipped in death and superstition from within the Finch menage. From the purely surreal imagery of sharks flailing down hills in the feverish imagination of a child right through to over the top comic books and grounded, gut-wrenching tragedy, this game has it all. As it flits from each to each it also threads together a completely compelling and downright disturbing picture of an exceptionally atypical family. Gamers with a taste for tales and stories will think they have died and gone to heaven!
