Just finished the game last night. Definitely worth picking up for the PC.

Here's a synopsis for people who don't know what it is:

"Condemned: Criminal Origins, a suspense-filled, first-person psychological thriller game, allows players to experience an unnatural level of psychological tension as they use their instincts, forensic tools, and melee combat to track serial killers and bring them to justice."

Much creepier than FEAR was.

There is no "best", best is what's best for you...

Have you tried searching first?

This was like a sleeper hit for PC. Didn't get much press and it looks better than the console version and from watching my roommie play it, I'm sure certain parts would freak me out.

"ANYONE who pc games that doesn't have a 360 controller for pc use, well frankly isn't a gamer at all."

I played the PC Demo and the Xbox 360 version, the 360 version looked superior to the PC version to my eyes....mostly in the bump-mapping department.

The PC version looked like "a standard PC game" but the 360 version really layered on the Bump Mapping and pixel lighting, it make the world look richer and more 3D on the 360 version that I didn't see on the PC version, even after I jacked up all the settings.
