How We Pick the Best PC Games
This tutorial took a lot of work to put together. Since PCM ag’s staff and independent reviewers have played an absurd amount of PC games over the years, developing inclusion criteria was crucial. After considerable thought, we came up with the following. A game must have been reviewed by PCMag, be still for sale, and have a rating of at least 3.5 stars to be included.
To guarantee that we can provide you with additional information about a game, the first criteria must be met. Yes, this guide will provide you with a brief overview of each game that is highlighted, but anyone searching for a deeper dive will benefit from the opportunity to go to a comprehensive review. The second point has previously been discussed. It was necessary to give the third criterion some thought. We didn’t want to make the star rating so high that we excluded high-caliber B-tier games like Dead Island and Split/Second, nor did we want to set it so low that almost all PC games qualified for the list. 3.5 stars now represents a nice medium, but as we evaluate more games, we might need to be more selective to keep the list tidy.
