01/10/2023 at 1:41 p.m. by Thilo Bayer – In a survey, PCGH wanted to know from its users which PC games they are most looking forward to. The results are quite surprising – but the top 3 with Diablo 4, Stalker 2 and Starfield were predictable.
2023 could be a good year for PC games, at least that’s what the release lists for this year and the results of a forum poll in which you could vote for several games suggest.
Diablo 4 again ahead
A total of over 300 PCGHX users voted and chose their favorites for 2023. Some of the top places are not particularly surprising. Diablo 4 (buy now €79.99) received by far the largest share of the vote: A third of all survey participants (exactly 33.4 percent) voted for Blizzard’s upcoming action role-playing game on 6/6/23. Diablo 4 was already at the top of previous Most Wanted polls. Stalker came second with 25.6 percent and Starfield with 24.4 percent. While the shooter Stalker 2 is expected after some delays at the end of the year, according to the latest information, Starfield should appear in the first half of 2023.

There are certainly a few surprises in the other top 10 places. The Cyberpunk 2077 expansion Phantom Liberty achieved a strong fourth place with 22.2 percent approval. Places 5-7 are very close, with Hogwarts Legacy (release on February 10th, 2023) with 21.6 percent, The Last of Us Part 1 (release on March 3rd, 2023) with 20.6 percent and Star arguing Wars Jedi: Survivor (Release on March 17th, 2023) with also 20.6 percent for the favor of the PCGH readers. The current 8th place also appears in Q1: The Dead Space Remake also manages the 20 percent mark and will be released on January 27th, 2023. So the first quarter is already well filled with top games from the point of view of the PCGH readers. Crysis 4 (18.1%) and the remake of Max Payne 1 (17.5%) do not yet have a release date.
The performance of supposed blockbuster games like Assassin’s Creed Mirage (10.3%), Dragon Age: Dreadwolf (7.8%) or Skull & Bones (3.1%) is surprisingly weak.
