When done right, Metroidvania games are some of the most engrossing experiences available.

Combining platforming with RPG elements, Metroidvanias reward players for going off the beaten path and exploring. They offer freedom, yet they’re also often tight experiences with precise controls and rewarding combat. While consoles have plenty of Metroidvania games available on them, they’re generally best played on PC.

With so many games available on PC, it can be hard to separate the wheat from the chaff, never mind find the best Metroidvanias. Hopefully that’s something we can help you with. We’ve put together a list of the best Metroidvania games on PC to point you in the right direct. Sure there are more available on PC, but these are the ones we’ve personally played and loved. Each and every one has our seal of approval. We hope it helps you decide what to play next.
