TechRadar’s PC Gaming Week is back for 2021, and PC gaming has never been better – or more important.

The PC continues to be the best place to play games if you’re after sheer breadth of game types. From obscure indie games to visually stunning AAA titles, our humble PCs (or tricked out rigs) let us leave our troubles behind and explore fantastic new worlds, enjoy emotional stories from creators from all over the world, or simply allow us to blow off some steam.

Speaking of steam, Valve is working on the handheld Steam Deck console, which could bring PC gaming to an even bigger audience. With Nvidia, Intel and AMD all producing some of the best PC gaming hardware they’ve ever made (if you can find the bloody things in stock), it’s never been a better time to be a PC gamer, as our PC Gaming Week 2021 will show.
