“PC gaming is dead!” – a claim that was made all those years ago when consoles saw a steep rise in popularity, and a claim that still gets made today by the nayest of naysayers. The truth is, no platform in gaming is really dead – especially not PC.
This year further proved that sentiment. Some truly stellar titles landed on PC this year, but which one stood out the most?
Heroes of the Storm
On the surface, Heroes of the Storm seems shallow, and far too casual to be enjoyed by the even the most hardcore of gamers. Yet after enough time with it, it’s clear that Blizzard’s age-old mythos continues to hold true: the MOBA is easy to pick up, but difficult to master.
Learning to play a hero for example, may not be the most difficult thing to do, but finding out exactly what talents to take, and what team composition suits that hero best, is where the real depth of the game shines through. Not only that, there are a plethora of different battlegrounds to explore and understand too, and a ton of different map strategies to explore.
It all sounds a bit overwhelming, but somehow, Blizzard have made the game accessible to everybody. It also happens to be entirely free-to-play, unless of course you’re looking to buy a cosmetic or two, in which case some cold hard cash is needed.
Overall, Heroes of the Storm is a game that can be picked up and enjoyed by anybody. For us, it is the best PC game of 2015!
Heroes of the Storm is not the only great title that came out this year however. Here are some others that certainly deserve some love too…
- Homeworld: Remastered
- StarCraft II: Legacy of the Void
- Pillars of Eternity
Which of the above is your favourite? Do you agree with Heroes of the Storm being the top pick?
