The best PC games of 2012


Cricket life 1st Edition

Publisher: Gamebience

Release: 2012

Cricket Life 1 is a cricketer management sim from Canadian developers Gamebience. You'll sign deals, make media appearances and build a business in addition to actually, you know, playing cricket. No mention of taking bribes, sadly. It's endorsed by Australian cricketer Michael Hussey, demonstrating that he is probably doing very well at Cricket Life 1.

Tiger Woods PGA Tour 13

Publisher: EA

Release: 2012

Nothing has been said about what's new for Tiger Woods PGA Tour 13's game mechanics, but EA are making a big fuss about the box it'll come in. Fans voted for the golfers they wanted to see on the cover, with popular young golfing bucks Rickie Fowler and Rory McIlroy winning out in the end. Gripping stuff we're sure you'll agree. PGA Tour 12 scored only 15%. Whoops.

RTL Winter Sports 2012

Publisher: DTP Entertainment

Release: 2012

A PC version is on the cards despite an apparent focus on the Wii. It offers ten different winter sports and a variety of single- and multiplayer modes. Early screenshots have confirmed curling, which is very exciting, and the E3 trailer shows real people pretending to ski and snowboard in their incredibly clean houses. Less of that please.

Fifa Street

Publisher: EA

Release: Christmas

Footie Day, sweepin' defenders away, on my way, to kick a ball with my feet. Can you tell me how to get, how to get to FIFA Street? Come and play, football by pressing 'A', you'll find players there, and a team to beat. Can you tell me how to get, how to get to FIFA Street?
