This week is an exciting one for members of PC Game Pass. Alongside Starfield, several highly anticipated games are also arriving such as Lies of P, Payday 3, and Party Animals. And the month of October has more exciting releases in store like Forza Motorsport and The Lamplighter’s League. With over a hundred PC games available, it can be overwhelming to choose where to start. That’s why we enlisted the help of Bruce Greene, a popular variety streamer, to pick his favorite games from the PC Game Pass library.

Bruce Greene has been playing PC games for 25 years, making him the perfect choice for this task. He was impressed by the wide selection of games on PC Game Pass and had to narrow down his list from the initial 40 or 50 games he wanted to recommend. Being a curator, this was the perfect opportunity for him to share his top picks.

The full list of Bruce’s favorite games can be found in the Xbox App for Windows PC. But he also gives a deeper insight into some of his selections below. For more of Bruce Greene’s game recommendations, you can check out the Xbox app for Windows PCs or follow him on Twitch.
