The bad news: Two of the most-hyped games this fall aren’t coming to PC. Not yet anyway, and maybe not ever: Red Dead Redemption 2 and Insomniac’s Spider-Man. But now for the good news: A staggering number of excellent games are coming to PC this holiday season. Like seriously, too many for any one person to play.

We’ve rounded up 15 of the PC games we’re most looking forward to this fall. While a few of the usual heavy hitters make the list (Forza), we’ve also tried to pick out a few surprises, or games you might not have heard of, like The Occupation. Because hey, you definitely know Shadow of the Tomb Raider is coming out this fall, but have you heard the good word about Outer Wilds?

The Walking Dead: The Final Season – August 14

Six years ago when Telltale put out The Walking Dead, it felt like a revelation. Why not take the story parts of an adventure game, present it cinematically, and leave out most of the puzzles and the usual adventure game busywork?

The formula’s been done to death since, not least by Telltale itself, but all these years later I’m excited to see what a “Final Season” of The Walking Dead looks like, and what that means for fan-favorite protagonist Clementine. It’s been a long and tough journey, and I hope Telltale can pull out a proper send-off.

The Walking Dead: The Final Season ($20 on Humble) starts August 14 and presumably goes through the end of the year, or perhaps early 2019.

Two Point Hospital – August 30

The late ‘80s and early ‘90s were this weird and wonderful time where it seemed like everything was ripe for a PC simulation. Cities? Sure, we’ve got SimCity. Ants? SimAnt. Elevators? SimTower.

Then there was Theme Hospital, one of Bullfrog’s (RIP) best games, and a cult classic worth revisiting. Or even remaking, as two decades later some of the original Theme Hospital talent is back working on a spiritual successor called Two Point Hospital ($35 on Humble).
