The Games Of June: Comparing 2010 Through 2014

June 2012 was a big month for late ports of PC games, with Max Payne 3, Ghost Recon Future Soldier, and Quantum Conundrum finally arriving. It also saw two big strategy releases in Sins of a Solar Empire: Rebellion and Civilization V: Gods & Kings.

Spec Ops: The Line, which was lauded by critics for its story, didn’t chart in its opening month. However, the excellent Lego Batman 2 shot to the top with three other new releases in tow (five if you count Max Payne since it released on PC).
