You know how it is. You think you’re into videogame soundtracks, then you go and hear someone perform ten of them on a Mongolian string instrument. I recently spent 20 minutes listening to a man do just that, and I think you should too.

Genius Jaavka is the man. The morin khuur is his instrument. Songs from Horizon Zero Dawn (coming to PC this summer), Mortal Kombat, Dota 2 and Fortnite are just some of the ones he treats us to. He’s really very good.

Over here in PC land we normally wouldn’t get to write about Nintendo’s cutesy island life sim, Animal Crossing, but I’ve found a wonderful reason to bring it before your eyes today. Animal Crossing: New Horizons lets you design all manner of lovely clothing items and pictures for you to display somewhere in your town, and players have been using it to create outfits inspired by PC games like Sea Of Thieves, Sayonara Wild Hearts and, of course, Doom: Eternal.

Max Payne 2: The Fall of Max Payne - contact@rockpapershotgun.com (RPS)

Everyone loves a good action game. It’s the driving force behind so many of our favourite PC games, but only a few can lay claim to being the best action games of all time. That’s why we’ve compiled this list – to sort the pulled punches from the bestest biffs that PC has to offer. Whether it’s the joy of pulling off a perfect combo, riding the wave of an explosive set-piece or the hair-raising thrill of dodging enemy attacks in slow-motion that gets you going, there’s an action game here for you.

The best RPGs have always found their home on PC, but it’s a big genre and it can be difficult to know what you should play next. That’s why we’ve put together this list.

Here we stand in the dark neo-year of 2020. The spam bots have risen to prominence, the governments of the world are bickering over follower counts, and history class has been renamed “meme studies”. Somewhere, in a dusty room in the RPS treehouse, a rogue human is compiling a list article for a crumbling PC games website. It is a warning to all those who read it. A prophecy of the terrible things to come. Wars, invasions, disease, heat death. Videogames, it turns out, have predicted all this and more. Here we replicate this cautionary pre-chronicle, your guide to the harrowing times ahead. Here are the 11 worst years in our future history, according to games.

Nothing says ‘Monday morning’ quite like punching yourself directly in the heart with a fist formed from five minutes of music then crumpling on the floor, a solitary tear rolling down your cheek. Thanks, Square Enix, for enabling this Monday morning moment by adding Nier soundtracks to Spotify. As part of the tenth birthday celebrations for the series, soundtracks for Nier: Automata as well as ye olde Nier Gestalt and Replicant from consoles are now up on streaming services. Listen at home! Listen on the bus! Listen at work then try to justify it by writing a post about you crying over roboguilt at 11am on a Monday!

Bayonetta and Nier: Automata developers Platinum Games have made a big announcement to start off the year – they’ve got themselves a partnership investment from Chinese conglomerate Tencent. With this, they might start self-publishing games. That’s not all though. The company have even more in store for us in the coming months, including an update on upcoming game Babylon’s Fall, and according to Platinum’s president and CEO, Kenichi Sato, 2020 will really be the year they come into their own.

FINAL FANTASY XIV Online - contact@rockpapershotgun.com (Alice O'Connor)

The heartbreakingly human androids of Nier: Automata today returned, sadly not with a sequel but in a Final Fantasy XIV crossover. Bully for you if you play the MMORPG, I suppose. For me, well, I suppose it makes me a little more sad – and isn’t that what Nier is really all about? You’re having an inferior Nier experience if you do play the new raid, frankly. The update also added new main quests, added quests for anime baby pixies, improved the tools for playing musical instruments, adding a trombone… lots of things. Me, I’m interested for the lost little robots.

Look! A ranking of the 50 best RPGs on PC. I know, you never asked for this, but here it is. It is 100 percent correct, we double-checked. The RPG is a broad and deep sea and fishing out the best games from its characterful waters is no easy task. But we are capable fishers on the good ship RPS, and know when to humanely throw back a tiddler or fight to heave up a monster. Enough of this salty metaphor. Here are the 50 best RPGs you can play on PC today.
