pc games

PC games are games played on a personal computer rather than a console. The PC gaming sector has been growing in popularity since 1996, when Microsoft Windows simplified the use of home computers with its improved memory management. Improved graphics accelerators and improving CPU technology led to improved performance and levels of realism in PC games, plus in high-end PC gaming, a PC will usually have far more processing resources at its disposal than console systems. One type of game that has flourished in the last decade has been the Massively Multiplayer Online Role Playing Game (MMORPG). Popular examples of these include World of Warcraft, Guild Wars 2 and EVE Online.
