    Here's some space games i can think of off the top of my head:
    Freelancer, the X series, Independence War series, the X-wing series, Freespace series, the Wing Commnder series, Darkstar One, the Homeworld series, Nexus: The Jupiter Incident, the Star Wolves series, etc. etc. etc.

    There's quite a lot actually.
    I was thinking more "in general" terms. Lately there has been a bit more space games coming out lately. I just don't think this genre see's the attention it deserves.

    Doesn't that just mean they do hack and slash really well then?

    That's what the third-person beatem ups list is for.

    I'll go beyond genres. What the PC is missing the most is influence from Japanese developers. For various reasons they practically ignore PCs. Some of them release their games on PC, but most of them don't.

    Yep, I absolutely agree. I think Western fans have cobbled together a lot of similar games on PC, but Japan just doesn't have the PC development culture that the West does. Well, that and Nintendo only releases on its own consoles.

    We did get Cave Story first though.

    PES is no longer developed in Japan, the latest game is developed in London. After so many critical and sales flops, something had to change.
    Steam(shots), Imgur, Bak'laag, why do you forsake me?

    It's still a Japanese company and publisher, without which the game wouldn't even exist.

    Need moar fighting games. The last PC only release I knew is One Must Fall: 2097, which is ancient as the stone age but there was a Street Fighter IV port release two years ago.

    I'd personally like to see a game similar to Smash Bros. on PC, but local multiplayer is incredibly rare, let alone local four person multiplayer.

    You mean LAN? Well, I don't know if games support that kind of MP anymore. We always need more games similar to Smash Bros. though

    Nah, I was talking about 4 people on the same box. Very local multiplayer.

    I don't really think Outrun 2006 qualifies as a "realistic driving game". It's as arcade as a game can get.

    Not exactly fighting games, but these guys make a lot of local multiplayer action games for free: http://teknopants.com/game/
    0space is a riot for local deathmatch, and the upcoming Samurai Gunn looks killer as well.

    I think OpenGlad is about as close as you are going to get: http://snowstorm.sourceforge.net/cgi...?page=openglad

    More of a large scale fantasy army game, but you can train your individual soldiers and monsters...
