For some time it was thought that sooner or later the computer as a gaming platform will go to rest, and they will be replaced console. Nevertheless consoles still can not boast capacity and ease of operation that are available PC owners. Layfhaker said about the games that are worth trying out the latest in the first place.
Before people learned about the first-person shooters, was born Doom. The game was released in 1993, and a very long time all the other projects in this genre considered its clones. One of the best shooters of the last decade - is to restart the franchise, which is also called Doom.
This is a game with a very high rate, per liter of blood and countless severed limbs. The main character just rushing forward, and all sorts of ways to kill people from hell.
In Doom is not only a bunch of all weapons, but also the opportunity to get up with a variety of monsters lewdness in the melee. All of this - under the energetic metal, which creates the perfect mood for the destruction of everything.
Shooters have long ceased to be exclusively solitary. Overwatch - a perfect example of multiplayer action movie with a first-person.
Players compete with each other in small groups in different modes - from simple to capture the flag and ending with seasonal activities such as football. The developers are trying to make the world as much as possible the project alive and interesting: produce expensive short films about the characters, comics and so on.
Overwatch it is not only an ideal choice for those who want to get an idea of e-sports, but also allows you to play completely different styles. Whether you want to shoot enemies with a sniper rifle or protect teammates, being in the thick of things - there exists an appropriate class for each.
initially Fortnite It was a paid game on the construction of databases and protection from zombies. Such it has so far, but millions of people, she fell in love with the free mode the battle royal.
About a hundred players are on the big island and begin to fight each other for the palm. Map scattered weapons, supplies and other useful things. Danger are not only enemies, but also constantly narrowing ring of death, beyond which will not live long.
Fortnite - more than a successor PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds. This is a game with a constantly changing world, extensive construction of protective structures and generous set of content.
Largely thanks to the Minecraft game became popular with early access - when a developer releases uncompleted version of the project and its users try and offer all sorts of improvements. But still it is one of the first games of survival.
You find yourself in a randomly generated world that is eight times the real Earth. You need to grow food, to hunt and to build himself a house to defend themselves against local threats zombie face, skeletons and exploding creeper.
The creative possibilities of the project helped the set videoblogerov gain millions of views. There are modifications that turn the game into a shooter or teaser.
Since 2009, when I got an alpha version, there are so many in Minecraft content, which can create a vast world without problems, like no one else. The project is available on almost all current platforms, but the most comfortable to play it is still on the PC.
The game known as PUBG, grew out of modifications for military shooter ArmA 2. The idea of a royal battle, realized it, has become so popular that it quickly eclipsed by a large number of modern multiplayer fighters.
Unlike Fortnite, in PUBG impossible to build something, and from Cartoon no trace is left in it. It is quite a serious thriller with plausible models of weapons and a bunch of ground transportation. And in addition to the tapered ring death periodically appear dangerous zone, in which it is easy to perish by bombardment.

The third game of the destroyer of monsters and witches favorite, Geralt went more than three years ago, but still is an excellent example of high quality game design. It is available on current consoles, but it is on the PC appears in all its glory.
The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt can be considered a benchmark in terms of what should be a job in the role-playing games and how the user's choice is to influence the world around us. But it is on the computer of the third "Witcher"To run because no it does not look as good on any other platform.
On a PC, you can put a great distance and draw a higher resolution picture. With this all in the project - from landscapes to the characters - it looks delicious. Of course, if powerful enough iron.
