PC Christmas Gift Guide 2016


Up until now, we’ve covered our Playstation, Xbox and Nintendo Christmas Gift Guides for 2016, but this PC Gift Guide is a little bit different.

Thanks to the ease of gifting games on PC, as well as the incredible prevalence of amazing Independent games, the PC Christmas Gift Guide has always been my personal favourite. Without being locked into the world of physical games, thanks to the digital store fronts of places like Steam, Green Man Gaming, Humble Store and Good Old Games, the ease with which you can buy and gift a digital game is unprecedented. It opens up a range of possibilities for Christmas gifts, including buying lesser known titles that are of an incredible quality for a lower price than a standard release in store.

There’s definitely still a range of big AAA retail games in this list, but thanks to the above digital store fronts we’re able to show off a much wider range of games. So, without further ado, here are our suggested PC games of 2016!
