1 ALAN WAKE

Rem­edy Games packed the PC ver­sion of AlanWake with im­prove­ments. It bun­dled the episodic DLCs with the game, and, as a bonus, in­cluded hefty op­tions to boost the vi­su­als be­yond that of the orig­i­nal.

2 CALL OF DUTY : BLACKOPS III

The PC ver­sion of CallofDuty:Black Op­sIII has lo­cal mul­ti­player op­tions, cus­tom ded­i­cated servers and of­fi­cial sup­port for what has be­come a vibrant mod­ding com­mu­nity.

3 DARK SOULS III

This is no­table in how it learned from the mis­takes of its pre­de­ces­sors. Af­ter the poor ports of the first and sec­ond games, FromSoft­ware put the time in to en­sure the PC port of DarkSoul­sIII was rock solid.

4 JOE DAN­GER

Hello Games in­creased the res­o­lu­tion and sta­bil­ity of both JoeDanger games for their Steam re­leases, adding Work­shop sup­port for play­ers to share lev­els, as well as a set of TeamFortress2 cameos.
