With awesome visuals and complex story lines these games are much more than a way of passing time. So if you are a gamer, or want to try your hand at gaming, check out these five really amazing PC games of 2012.
Firefall is a totally thrilling shooting game that lets you participate in player vs player and player vs environment warfare. It is an online game that will not cost you anything to play. Launched at the beginning of this year, this game lets you customize your player to a large extent. Jetpacks and long rage shooting are this game’s major appeal. Players can heal their injuries, as they go through their lives. The story has also been worked upon in great detail.
Tera is the perfect blend of the instant empowerment of a video game and the detailed environment of a massively multiplayer online game. Whether or not you succeed or fail in this game world depends on the skill with which you play, rather than on luck or statistics. Tera’s storyline involves not just battling and fights but also forming bonds and finding allies, which makes this a truly interactive game.
This sequel to the Epic Borderlands game stands out as one of 2012’s best offerings in PC games. Extremely fast in pace, with a first person shooter, and a stream of objects to hunt down and loot, this game will keep you on the edge of your seat. An interesting story, equipped with humor and drama, Borderlands 2 is a through and through entertainer.
The first two games in the Bioshock series were in an underwater environment, but this third game takes players to the sky, to a floating city named Colombia. The player’s task is to find a certain woman with a rare and mysterious talent in this city. To fulfill this goal, the player has to dodge insane and furious locals, make his way around the extremely weird game world, and fight protective guardians that try to keep him away from his target.
This is one of the most anticipated games this year; StarCrafts fans have been waiting for this one for years. It takes the earlier story forward, keeping the real time strategy mechanics intact, but adding much more details to the universe and the characters, and far better graphics. Speculations are rife that this game is going to be even better than the previous StarCraft games.
