There are so many good PC adventure games on Steam, but which of them are worth playing? If you love getting lost on a journey, you'll definitely like the Steam adventure games that are featured on this list. Browsing Steam can be a little confusing, because their tag system is rather wonky and often mislabels games. That's why we created this ranked list of PC adventure games you can play on Steam, so you can skip their store page and search for the games directly.

This list features a wide variety of adventure games on PC, from point and click titles like Thimbleweed Park to more action-oriented adventure games like Batman: Arkham City. If you want something relaxing that is a more narrative adventure, you should check out What Remains of Edith Finch or Firewatch.

These are among some of the most cultivated, cinematic, and exhilarating adventure games for PC, so go ahead and vote up whichever ones you feel had the most impact on you as a gamer. You can downvote these Steam adventure games as well, but only do so if you've actually played the game.
