Where should the dragons come to roost?
PC version seems to be the way to go. Although I rather not play games on PC :( I am a fanboy of Console gaming.
DAO is a spiritual successor to Baulder's Gate, it's a whole experience on PC. As far as graphics go, the PC version has a definite visual, and frame rate advantage, and that was with a pretty modest gaming rig. You can get a 4870 for $125. For the console versions, the PS3 version snubs the 360 version for the most part. In some of the scenes it didn't even look like the 360 version had dynamic shadows...
Congrats? Thats for sharing. You've missing out on the best platform for DA:O with your close minded view. And before you say anything, I have ps3/xbox/wii/pc - so I really don't care what version people buy, but theres no questions the PC has the best one.
yes because DO:A on ps3/360 have different story then PC. Do you even listen to yourself? I buy all my games for consoles with few exceptions (L4D.. pc was the way to go). I dont deny myself of PC exclusives games like crysis. I prefer consoles and thats that. Is my pc connected to a 60' HDTV? no.. a 7.1 surround system? no. 'you've missing out on the best platform for DA:O' thats an opinion, guess who is the closed-minded person here? oh and a corrented statement: I am a fan of console gaming. 4got fanboy has an extreme undertone on N4G
I'm closed minded because I looked at the press releases for each version, watched videos and read the multiple reviews that said the PC version > Console versions? I'm happy that you're PS3 is hooked up to a 60" TV, mine is also hooked up to a 61" Samsung HDTV with surround sound, but thats doesn't make the dumbed down console port of DA:O better than the superior PC version. People have great PC setups also - mine has 5.1 surround on a large screen monitor. Maybe if you were stuck playing on a 17" CTR monitor with crappy Dell factory speakers it would suck, but the game itself is better on the PC. Like I said, I don't care what version people buy, as I like gaming - not fanboys, but the PC version of DA:O is better, and its proven - not an opinion.
PC is the way to go because it can handle more. There's no radial menu (annoying as anything to me) More enemies on screen (the same battle that has 3 people on 360 version has 6 or more enemies on PC) and therefore more difficult The toolset will allow for mods and custom stories (assuming mod community takes off) Not to mention the graphics are better if you have a decent GPU Everyone is entitled to their opinion and mine is that if you can run it on PC, it's your best bet value and graphics wise
I'm sorry if you fail to see my point. My Computer IS NOT set up for gaming.. so obviously for me the DA:O PC is not the 'best' option. You need to stop assuming the world is perfect and everyone has everything. Coz thats not how live works.. I have other priorities then to pimp out my PC rig... so i could care less. my console version > PC version if I play it with the equipment i have.. FACT.
3sh!tty version looks washed out.
Even if that's true, PS3 version looks ancient compared to a PC with a decent graphics card...what's your point?
PC WINS XBOX SUCKS PS3 COMES IN OK I GUESS!!! I COMPLAIN ON THE INTERNET CAUSE MY OPINIONS ON VIDEOS GAMES MATTERRRRR!!!!!!!!! IM BASICALLY A REAL LIFE VERSION OF THE COMIC BOOK GUY FROM THE SIMPSONS! I HAVE NOTHING TO LIVE FOR! NOTHING TO BE PROUD OF SO I TAKE IT OUT ON RANDOM PEOPLE ON THE NET THAT CAN'T RETALIATE!! NOW IM OFF TO PLAY A GAME AND YELL INTO THE MIC RACIST HOMOPHOBIC REMARKS!!! VIDEO GAME NERD AAAWWWAAAAYYYY!!!!!
