Microsoft recently unveiled their Games for Windows lineup at CES and I honestly can't believe how great the list is. Who knew other genres besides first-person shooter actually existed?

If you happen to be at work and you can't view this video or you just enjoy reading the names of PC games, then look over the full list of titles after the break.

"Age of Conan: Hyborian Adventures" (Eidos Interactive/Funcom)

"Age of Empires III: The Warchiefs" (Microsoft Game Studios/Ensemble Studios)

"Alan Wake" (Microsoft Game Studios/Remedy)

"Bioshock" (2K Games/Irrational Games)

"Company of Heroes" (THQ Inc./Relic Entertainment)

"Crysis" (EA Partners/Crytek)

"Enemy Territory: Quake Wars" (Activision/Splash Damage)

"Flight Simulator X" (Microsoft Game Studios/ACES Studio)

"Frontlines: Fuels of War" (THQ/Kaos Studios)

"Halo 2" (Microsoft Game Studios/Bungie Studios)

"Hellgate: London" (EA Partners/NAMCO BANDAI Games/Flagship Studios)

"LEGO Star Wars II: The Original Trilogy" (LucasArts/TT Games)

"Lord of the Rings Online: Shadows of Angmar" (Midway/Turbine Inc.)

"Marvel Universe Online" (Microsoft Game Studios/Cryptic Studios)

"Rail Simulator" (EA Partners/Kuju Entertainment)

"Shadowrun" (Microsoft Game Studios/FASA Studio)

"Supreme Commander" (THQ/Gas Powered Games)

"Tabula Rasa" (NCSoft Corp./ Destination Games)

"World in Conflict" (Sierra Entertainment/Massive Entertainment)

"Zoo Tycoon 2: Extinct Animals" (Microsoft Game Studios/Blue Fang Games)

"Zoo Tycoon 2: Marine Mania" (Microsoft Game Studios/Blue Fang Games)

"Zoo Tycoon 2: Zookeeper Collection" (Microsoft Game Studios/Blue Fang Games)

Bioshock, Alan Wake, Crysis, Hellgate, and Supreme Commander are all looking mighty fine right about now. See any games that captivate you?

Lacking recording/social features aside (I actually do love that aspect of the PS4), I've been really enjoying my Xbone. Sunset Overdrive is like Saints Row meets Tony Hawk and lovingly self-aware.

Going on the record saying a Borderlands movie is a terrible idea.

Watching Free To Play. I kinda want to try DOTA2, though I'll be very bad at it. Its a very good story of pro-gamer culture, so far. Good Stuff.

Just tried to explain the word BEAT to an ESL student. Reference.com has 58 variations of the definition. At the least, they can finally understand that Michael Jackson was not asking people to fight each other.

Are we really calling followers "fappers" on these quick posts? I knew I loved Dtoid.

So I have enough coins to get a new character in Heroes of the Storm. I like big portly characters like the Butcher or Stitches, but I did enjoy my free week of Tychus. Crowd thoughts?

Today I learned that Bad Rats 2 is a thing that is happening. I don't know how to feel about this.

The temp agency that employs me had me work as a sign spinner today. As in, I held a six foot cardboard arrow-shaped sign and spun it and danced for six hours. It got interesting when a homeless couple confronted me about hogging their spot.
