Here They Are – The 10 Best PC Video Games of 2017:
- Battlefield 1
Battlefield 1 is a new addition to the Battlefield franchise. Similarly to others in the franchise, it is a first person shooter, putting you in the position of a soldier fighting the enemy.

With an updated Sim creator and new content, it brings a new approach to the franchise. It does so without radically changing anything, keeping the overall experience and expectations the same.
- Eve Online
Eve Online has become known as one of the best MMO games out there. Complexity, depth, content, and huge communities have helped to boost the image of this game. People have to work hard, and do a lot, if they are to succeed. From trade to piracy, there is always something that you can do to succeed and to take out opponents. The interaction options and features have made the most of this, too. The level of detail has not gone down over the years.
- Final Fantasy XIV
Final Fantasy has made a name for itself as the top JRPG out there. With Final Fantasy XIV, it also proves that it can be an amazing MMO. It gives you the world you love about Final Fantasy games, with creatures and characters that look stunning, in an MMO setting. Play alongside friends, collect pets, battle, grind, go on quests, and explore. It is similar to many MMO games out there, with a Final Fantasy twist to it.
- World of Warcraft
The MMO World of Warcraft has been a hugely popular game since its release. With endless characters, a growing world, a dedicated community, and content that just does not end, you always have something to do, even today. New versions have come out since its original release, too, giving you updated graphics and world. If you have played WoW in the past, or want to get into it now, there is always room and choices.
Minecraft has quickly become one of the biggest games in the world. A sandbox made entirely of blocks, you can create nearly anything you want. Your imagination, and the mods available, are your only limits. Go survival or creative, whatever you prefer. That popularity is going to continue growing, as players of all ages remain addicted and in love with this game. It has more than enough content and possibilities to keep it going for many years more, remaining a huge title every year.
- League of Legends
One of the biggest MOBA games out there, League of Legends, has made a name for itself as a top title. League of Legends gives you the choice of multiple characters and then throws you into a battlefield, where you will play alongside others as teams. Two teams go in, and only one can win. Using strategy, skill, and teamwork, it is your job to come out on top. Learn a specific character, improve your ability with them, and try to become a highly competent player. It is not easy, but neither is winning – that is why you have to put you all in with this game. It is a demanding title and is a big name in eSports for a reason.
- Fallout 4
Fallout 4 is the newest in the Fallout line. Massively popular from the start, it puts you on a journey through a nuclear wasteland, similarly to others in the Fallout line. If you have played games from this franchise, you likely know what to expect. Battles, bandits, frights, and challenges await you on your journey out of the Vault. If you know what you are doing, and if you take your time to do it well, you can come away a huge success. With so many enemies and quests awaiting you, though, that is going to be a lot harder than you imagine.
Runescape has been around for well over 10 years, in its third version now. You have probably played it at some point, even a little. It comes with a massive amount of content, a fully built world, endless questing, numerous skills, and more.

Like World of Warcraft, it gives you an MMO journey that you can take with friends, learning things and meeting new people.
These are the best PC video games for 2017.

Whatever you love to do in games, there is something in these titles that will get you hyped and wanting to play.
