We have talked about the games coming out in September for the PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and Nintendo Switch [VIDEO]; so it is only fair to do the same for the PC. Ever since Japanese companies started to port their games to Windows, each month sees an increase in the number of titles released for the computer.

Considering that Microsoft is releasing every game on Windows 10 as-well, this means that PC is easily the best-stocked platform of the bunch. If it was not for Nintendo and Sony's handful of exclusives, and the lower price of a console, it would be hard to recommend a console over a PC.

'Total War: Warhammer II'

Developed by Creative Assembly and published by SEGA, "Total War: Warhammer II" is the highly anticipated sequel to the acclaimed original title released in 2016.

At the moment, there is no word that this real-time strategy game, or the original, will be coming to consoles, so PC is the only place to experience the thrill of leading an army to battle against the forces of darkness.

The "Total War" franchise is one of the definitive series tailor made for the computer, as real-time strategy games rarely ever translate well to consoles. They are designed to be played with a keyboard and mouse, and a controller always feels cumbersome. These are not easy games to get into, as we have lost countless of hours watching helplessly as our armies are put to the sword, but few experiences deliver the same satisfaction upon victory.

'Guild Wars 2: Path of Fire'

The MMO market might be oversaturated at the moment, but a handful of classics continue to find new ways to survive.

"Guild Wars", available only on PC, turned five-years-old today. This is an impressive run for any title, but the best might be yet to come. While the base game is currently free-to-play, so there is no risk in at-least trying it out, ArenaNet developed the second expansion to hopefully sustain life in the world of Tyria for a few more years.

"#Guild Wars 2: Path of Fire" adds a lot of content to what is already a pretty huge game, including five new open world maps and four mounts. Each profession will also receive a new elite specialization, to add something more to the combat. This expansion is a massive undertaking and one that could help fuel the MMO for the next few years.

'Ys VIII: Lacrimosa of DANA'

"Ys VIII: Lacrimosa of DANA" is an odd duck, isn't it? While other JRPGS are trying desperately to make the jump to the PC market, "Ys" is working in reverse. This is a franchise that has always been made primarily for computers, despite a few handheld ports, so the fact that the eight entry is being made available on Steam is no surprise.

If you are searching for a fun hack and slash action RPG, "Ys VIII: Lacrimosa of DANA" is the only option. It is fast paced, tells a cliche but enjoyable story, and the Japanese version was met with a positive reception. #Total War Warhammer #Real Time Strategy
