Best Nintendo 3DS games: 20 titles you should take on the go

Though it’s been somewhat eclipsed by the impressive new hybrid Switch, the Nintendo 3DS has continued to thrive as an exclusively handheld platform.

40 best PC games: the must-play titles you can't afford to miss

There’s a false perception that PC gaming is unapproachable and alienating to newcomers. In reality, aside from giving you more ways to play, it’s generally not all that different from consoles. Many of the games, for instance, are the same – and if you’re a PC user with the right equipment you can actually enjoy higher resolutions and frame rates than on a console. And PC is the only place at the moment to get native, no-frills 4K gaming, thanks to efforts from AMD and Nvidia – PS4 Pro’s checkerboard upscaling techniques be damned.
