2007 Fall Games Preview
2006 was just a so-so year for quality PC games. There were a few stand out entries such as Company of Heroes, Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion, Galactic Civilizations 2 and Half-Life 2: Episode One but for the most part the PC game industry seemed to be in a bit of a holding pattern with lots of titles getting delayed until this year. We have already had a number of impressive game titles come down the pike so far in 2007 from Supreme Commander to Command and Conquer 3 to S.T.A.L.K.E.R.. Most recently the terrific game BioShock was released for the PC (despite some tech problems that didn't really affect gameplay) and of course the year started out with the biggest selling PC game of all: World of Warcraft: The Burning Crusade.
If 2007 ended right now, the level of PC games released would already top the medicore heights of 2006. But the game industry really gets revved up in September as a flood of PC titles hits the marketplace and doesn't let up until sometime in early December. So which games coming out this fall are we at FiringSquad most interested in checking out? Well you happen to be in luck, my friend, because we have a handy list of our top 20 PC games we are most excited about playing this fall/holiday season (along with a few honorable mentions). Some of these games have taken literarly years to finally come to stores after their initial announcements (one game took 9 years, and we don't mean Duke Nukem Forever) and combine that with some of thes titles taking avantage of DirectX10 and we have the makings of what could be the best PC game line-up in years.
So will this line-up of games fullfill their promises? We will find out in the coming weeks but until then here is our list of PC games currently scheduled to come out between now and the end of the year that we most want to play (as always release dates can and most likely will change for a few of these titles so make sure to check FiringSquad as we will post up news of any delays that might occur)
