Every year is a good year for the PC. Computer gamers needn't worry about console launches, system shortages or a dearth of quality titles. They customize their own systems, they upgrade whenever they want or need to, and they get to play practically every game in some form. Usually with the best possible graphics. Last-gen, current-gen, next-gen... the PC is always in the cutting-edge generation.
Although this technological freedom translates into a variety and depth of games limited only by the developers' skill and imagination, the majority still fall into a few familiar genres. This means that, no matter how hardcore or self-reliant your PC enthusiast, we can still predict what they're going to want to play on that tricked-up tower they just finished building. Trust us.
