Check after the break to find out what other PC games will be at the top of your gamer's list this holiday season.

  • Hard Reset Hard Reset is a fas-paced first-person shooter from Polish developer The Flying Wild Hog. It features tons of weapons, lots of actions, and most importantly, huge explosions. It's a modern, gorgeous-looking game with an old school "blow up all the things" feel.
  • Total War: Shogun 2 Total War: Shogun 2 is an amazing real-time strategy game from developer Creative Assembly. In it, you return to 16th century feudal Japan to fight against local warlords in order to become the ruler of Japan. Combining turn-based strategy with fantastic AI, this is the best entry to the Total War series yet.
  • Age of Empires Online Age of Empires Online is a free-to-play title from Gas Powered Games that mixes real time strategy elements with addictive massively multiplayer online components. Even though it's free to download, you can still purchase tons of premium content to enhance your AOEO experience even further like new quests, cosmetic items, and other fun features.
  • Magicka Magicka is an adorably gruesome game based on Norse mythology where you must combine spells in order to kill your enemies in the most enjoyable ways possible. While it's fun to play alone and experiment with spell combinations, it's much more fun to blow up enemies alongside your friends.  
  • The Witcher 2: Assassins of KingsThe Witcher 2: Assassins of Kings from developer CD Projekt Red is considered one of the best role playing games of the year. Featuring gorgeous graphics, fast-paced gameplay, and one of the best stories we've ever had the pleasure to play through, this title is one that shouldn't be missed. Plus, it comes with a lifetime supply of free downloadable content.
  • Minecraft: Minecraft, from developer Mojang, has been heralded by the gaming industry as one of the most innovative games ever created. It's a game where you can create almost anything and it's only limited by your imagination. There are a few modes, one which focuses on players creating anything they can think of out of cubes and another mode where you have to acquire resources to stay alive. 
  • Star Wars: The Old Republic: For the MMO gamer in your life, Star Wars: The Old Republic from BioWare is sure to be the most anticipated MMO of the year. Allowing you to play as a member of either the Old Republic or the Sith Empire from Star Wars, you'll get to play through your own personal storyline and team up with friends to battle your way across the galaxy.

Of course there were many other great games that were released for the PC this year that came out on consoles too like Deus Ex: Human Revolution, Portal 2, Crysis 2, and of course The Elder Scrolls 5: Skyrim.
