Top 10 Best Selling PC Games

by on Sep 10, 2014

I don’t own an Xbox or Playstation so I play all my Video Games on my laptop or PC. And yes I do actually buy them, either from a store or on Steam or Origin. What’s the point of playing a game if you can’t fully enjoy it, especially on multiplayer. It’s always great to see that not everyone downloads pirated games and that they support the developers or their favorite video game franchise. That’s why I decided to make a Top 10 Best Selling PC Games. Who knows, maybe next time I’ll make one for the console games.

I have a t-shirt addiction, a craving for new RTS video games and a dream to become Captain America. I also grow my own beard so I'm kind of a big deal! :P
