The 32 best PC games that demand to be played in ultrawide

The best games in the whole wide world

Featured post

There’s an old saying in gaming monitor circles that once you’ve gone ultrawide, there’s no going back. Indeed, having had the vast Samsung CRG9 hogging my desk for a bit last month, I’m inclined to agree. But what do games actually look like on a screen this wide? It’s one thing looking at lovely wallpapers, but another thing entirely to have a game occupy your entire field of vision.

To find out, and more importantly show you, I’ve rounded up all the very best ultrawide PC games, complete with pictures of what they actually look like in the flesh, plus oodles of lovely GIFs so you can see how it works in action. If you thought playing Red Dead Redemption 2 in 5120×1440 was impressive, you ain’t seen nothing yet.

Of course, there are loads more games that support ultrawide aspect ratios than what I’ve listed here. For a complete run-down, check out PC Gaming Wiki‘s in-depth list on the subject, as they’ll tell you which ones have proper native support as well as which ones you can sort of get ultrawide on with the help of mods or other file fixes.

To make it onto this list, though, I’ve kept a couple of key things in mind. First, each game must have native support for it, and second, they’ve really got to make an impression on the old eyeball department. In short, if you’ve just bought yourself an ultrawide monitor or are thinking of buying one in the near future, these are the games that you should play first.

To the GIFs!
