  2. ehm… someone in the edit room needs to learn how to count… 11, 12 15?, 14? 17?, 18, 19, 13? 16? 20? wow your counting ability is worse than windows 😛

  3. Forza Horizon 4,Assassin's Creed Odysseus,Battlefield 5,Subnautica,Shadow of the Tomb raider,Red Dead Redemption 2,Dragon Quest XI,Yakuza O,Vampyr,Hitman 2,To 10 Games PC

  4. Hi guys. Sorry but we made a mistake on the order of the runners-up. The numbers, details and playscore are all correct. It's just that the order is mixed-up. It was a mistake during our editing process, with all the layers being moved.

  5. Oh my God!! While the information may be good, couldn't you get someone who didn't sound so RIDICULOUSLY SCRIPTED?!?!? It doesn't even sound as if she is interested in or preread the script to get the words right at times. AWFUL!!

  6. I don't get it. Why you separate this video with indie? while we can see some games in this video are indie games (frostpunk & bloodsteined)

    Btw I like these list but I don't agree with the rank. And I think you missed some pc games that should be on the list (monster hunter world, far cry 5, final fantasy XV, AC Odyssey, insurgency sandstorm, etc)

  7. No subnautica?? Wtf it was PC game of the year, to be honest most of the games in the video are Play station remakes or games not even PC gets only this list sucks.
