Leave it to SarcasticGamer to come up with a list like this one.
2- Superior Resolutions.
3- Better Controls.
4- Online play is free. (facking Microsoft xboxlive!)
5- More update, mods, and new content than on consoles.
And best yet to come - Physics cards and DX10!!
i agree lol!!! PC only rocks if i have 20G to spend on a computer and upgrades. nice avater picture dude, she looks fine :)
lmao soo true!!!!
but Gears of War did look and Run Very smooth on the PC so i give PC Gaming 10/10
hope you are jokin and arent seriously giving pc gaming a 10/10 when there are tons of games out on pc that would murder any console title. I don't want to mention crysis since its not out but trust me gears of war is not going to be the best game 2 hit pc's. It won't even come close
The only thing that sucks is the price of upgrades.
Couldn't agree more...
I like the system "console + PC". There is some games that you just couldn't play in consoles, Adventures for exemple, they simple almost don't come, so I always try to maintain my PC up to games, even playing more on consoles.
Bubbles for you!
I spent $1000+ every two years just to upgrade PC. I'm really sick of the constant upgrading and OS purchases. My 7800GTX now piece of crap now since it doesn't support DX10.
1. sitting on a chair instead of the couch sux
2. upgrading vid card every 6 months sux and very pricey + you may have to upgrade other stuff that supports them =X
3. gamepads aren't as good as console controllers
4. if no gamepad, playing on keyboard sux
5. if you friends come home to play there's not a useful 2 player split screen unless you have dual keyboards, monitors and mouse @_@
Right now I will need to upgrade my motherboard, microprocessor and vid card if I want one compatible with DX10 =X and fug I don't have the money for it plus my PC still great for what I use it (not just internet and porn but editing audio and video)
I would be a hardcore PC gamer if it wasn't for the price to have a nice rig.
yeah ps3 and pc is better than any console, and ps3 is just the best
I'm sorry but the ps3 is not better than a high end pc i have a ps3 love it to death but the truth is that if it comes out on any console and the pc i will pick up for the pc. but then again i have a nice gaming rig
You can't beat the feeling of booting up your rig that you just built.
always a nice feeling.
Some people prefer PC gaming, Some people prefer console. Just because you like Keyboard and mouse does not mean it's the best for gaming, or vice versa. It's about preference and to declare one better than the other is just plain stupid. I play on PC/360/PS3 and I prefer to play on consoles on my 40' 1080p samsung lcd with my Onkyo 804 and JBL L Studio series 5.1 surround sound, sitting in my cozy sofa. It's about preference and play what you like, games is what we play no matter how you play them.
If you like to play games on PC's, why do you need console gamers to acknowledge that PC gaming is better? Does it make you sleep better at night? Does it bother you that most gamers prefer consoles gaming over PC gaming? Is it one of those manly things mines is bigger than yours? Are you going to kill yourself, because most people don't like keyboard and mouse for gaming?
I 100% agree with mario's statement...I think arguing about whether Pc gaming being better than console gaming and vice versa is completely retarted and fanboyish. Bottom line is they're two completely different machine types geared towards certain types of gamers. Everytime I hear someone talk about how great a pc is over a console and to name some games, every game mentioned is either a) a shooter , b)MMOG or c)a real time strategy or sim of some sort.
Outside of that I have yet to hear anyone say " Damn virtua fighter 5 is the sh*t on PC" or Ninja Gaiden or (insert platformer here) is awesome on the pc(because you wont find these types of games on a PC). And like wise goes for consoles...you'll rarely hear anyone claim a shooter was better on a console over the PC version. If you're into shooters, sims, RTS and MMOG's pc's win hands down. But if you prefer to have a wide variety of games such as platformer, RPG's, racing, sports, adventure, fighting, and so on, and dont have a ton of cash to buy the latest and greatest rig, then consoles are the best way to go.
Yes, the games are usually the best i.e. CRYSIS BUT! Due to the fact that there are so many types of pc the programming cannot be optimised properly for any one machine, all software has to be made to run on hundereds of different configurations. In order for the game to play as it should requires a huge amount of money to get the cutting edge hardware and that's just the start.
Once you have a top P.C. you have to spend ages installing the software, because it won't run from the disk.
o.k. it only has to be installed once but it takes ages sometimes. By the time i've installed agame on the pc I could have splapped a disk into the 360 or PS3 and played though a couple of levels and in most cases the games are just as good as they can be properly optimised for these machines as there is only one configuration which the devs know.
The only time pc gamming betters consoles is when you can afford the latest and greatest ( DX10, VISTA, QUAD CORE, etc..)
And.. don't even get me started on the mouse+keyboard thing
But eh that's just my opinion.
Instead of adding the price of buying an entire machine, just look at what it would cost to upgrade your current rig to gaming standards. If you have a recent computer you may already have a dual core processor, because they are the new standard. In most cases all that is required is a little memory and a better video card. The prices are usually comparable to purchasing a next-gen console system. If you are a smart purchaser you never buy the latest hardware right as it comes out. You wait six months and that same hardware will cost 30% less, due to the fact that advancements are being made all the time. Yes, Pc gaming costs time and money, but I enjoy working on my PC just as much as I like gaming on it, and the benefits are there. Like better control, better visuals, mods, and free muliplayer.
