Tactical Party Turn Based Strategy have seemed lacking the past 5 years. XCom, new Jagged Alliance. Never really seen the likes of Final Fantasy Tactics, Fire Emblem, Luminous Arc, Tactics Ogre, Disgaea, lots more. Maybe since its more of an Japanese thing?
Maybe because they also suck as tactical TBS, since the tactics usually end up at "have higher level to defeat the enemy" and "use ice on fire monster".

Ooh, what I wouldn't give for a proper PC Fire Emblem game...

- If the sound of Samuel Barber's "Adagio For Strings" makes you think of Kharak burning instead of the Vietnamese jungle, most of your youth happened during the 90s. -
I personally love these sorts of games - it's very easy to become very invested in a match. I've spent many, many hours on the DS remake of Front Mission - Now THERE'S a genre under-represented on PC: Mecha SRPGs. I'd love to see square make a proper front mission game for the PC.
Anyways, is that distinction as important with games. Once you abstract enough the lines between the two seem to blur. Is chess a strategic or tactical game?

I'm not sure about realistic racing games :-S
I mean the only game that don't have PC ports are Forza/GT5, then the PC has a bunch of exclusives on top of that. I wouldn't call Forza/GT5 realistic either, they're just collectible car porn games.
Most of these genres are now tragically under represented on consoles too... I bought a ps3 and xbox early in this console box gen to play these types of games and there is very little to choose from, often of very poor quality.
I also agree with Zephro that GT5/Forza are clearly not in the same category of the PC racing sims. Although I find they have catched up quite a bit in terms of driving physics in this current generation. Still they are optimized for the masses and gamepads.

racing games are not that good in PCs compared to those in gaming consoles.
would love to see quality games of that genre running on my pc soon.
