PlayStation 4 Pro or Xbox One X? How about neither. PC gamers have been playing games at 4K resolution for a while and at a much higher framerate than 60 frames per second. Just ask the people playing Destiny 2. Whether you're a PC pro or a newbie, here are the best PC games to play right now.
At long last, PC gamers can get in on the Destiny craze. Destiny 2 marks the first time a game in the series will be available on PC and it was definitely worth the wait. Boasting breathtaking backdrops and deeper character development, this first-person shooter is bigger and grander than ever before. You'll step into the shoes of a Guardian fighting against Ghaul and the Red Cabal army as he attempts to steal the light of the mysterious Traveller. There will be scores of intergalactic firefights, but thanks to the multiplayer feature you won't have to do it alone. Are you ready to battle Ghaul and collect some exotic loot along the way? Then suit up!
Wolfenstein has been around for a couple of decades, but the latest in the series, Wolfenstein II: The New Colossus, seems tailor-made for the times. Released amid a storm of controversy, the game has players step into the bloody shoes of B.J. Blazkowicz as he does what he does best: killing Nazis. Only this time, the Nazis have brought the fight to the shores of the United States, and it's up to Terror Billy to punch, burn, eviscerate and shoot his way through an army of the Third Reich, so his kids won't grow up under an oppressive regime.
Cuphead is like a heaping helping of nostalgia, combining the teeth-grinding difficulty of games like Contra with the whimsical art style of a 1930s cartoon. Following the exploits of Cuphead and his brother, Mughead, you're tasked with collecting soul contracts from a variety of characters in the game's world. Collect enough, and you can keep the devil from collecting your soul. But be warned: The battles aren't easy, and you're going to die over and over again. It's one of the most deceptively challenging games to come out in a long time.

Picking up from the events of Injustice: Gods Among Us, the excellent fighter Injustice 2 finds Batman and his allies trying to restore peace after overthrowing Superman's totalitarian regime. However, a new band of villains threatens to destroy everything, forcing everyone into a knock-down, drag-out fight for the fate of the world. Use air juggles, combos, parries and powers to fight for good or evil.

Talion the Ranger and the Elf Lord Celebrimbor continue their war of vengeance by bringing the fight to the heart of Mordor with new powers, new abilities and a few good Uruks. Instead of sneaking into Uruk fortresses to take out the local overlord, you'll be leading a full-on siege with your own Uruk army — all in an attempt to drive back the forces of the Dark Lord Sauron and face off with a new, potentially more dangerous foe.

Alone on an abandoned space station — that's a scenario just screaming for some horrifying killer alien with plenty of jump scares. But that's not what you'll find in Tacoma. Centered on telling a compelling story, Tacoma tasks you with discovering what happened to the station's missing crew by rewinding and fast-forwarding logs and surveillance footage or examining emails. The point of the game is not to fight some alien horror, but rather to explore the thoughts and motivations of a crew in the face of disaster. It's a nice change from frights and resource management.

After yearly rehashes of Call of Duty and Battlefield, Overwatch feels like a breath of fresh air. The game's cast ranges from a super-intelligent, genetically engineered gorilla to an enlightened robot monk. And like Team Fortress 2 did back in 2007, Overwatch delivers strategic, team-based play; game-changing ults; and nail-biting finishes across 12 maps and four game modes. If you’ve got the skills, maybe you’ll score the show-stopping Play of the Game.
