I bought Mirrors Edge for $4AUS from GAME in store, box, manual plastic wrapping and all.

There was a double pack of dues ex/just cause for $4 as well....

Retail still has these sort of sales.

I can also buy any game cheaper than steam from retail on release dat. Steam is only good for sales of obscure games or if you live in a third world country with no retail chains.

PC gaming platform is the cheapest to game on despite what most people playing on console may say.

People think Consoles are cheap because they always end up comparing the initial purchase price, however they forget the hardware is pointless without the software. Since console games launch at a higher price and stay there for a long time. For anyone who is a serious gamer and wants to be playing 1-2 games a month PC is easily much cheaper in the long run.

i wish more people talked pc gaming like this instead of, well you know.
for me when it comes to console it's an ease of use thing, i buy a game throw it in and play. no hardware restrictions to think of.

with that said i do recognize the advantages that come with pc gaming, the price of the games being maybe the biggest. add to that modding that can keep a game fresh for ages.

Well tbh i been using windows 7 since its launch(i have never reinstalled it), i cant recall if my computer has ever crashed ever since the first install its that stable. Stability wise i would place it above my friends console.

I currently use steam, which means all my games are installed on the PC, there is no such thing is as removing disks and getting another disk to play the next game i wanna play. Its basically point, click & play. I find that alot easier then console. Sure there are those times when games have problems, but lets be honest here these days games launched on console arent perfect either and problems do occur on console too, however when a problem happens on console you are limited to the developer to giving you a solution, With PC you atleast have a chance of getting something done yourself.

Regarding hardware it may have been an issue 5 years back when games were actually take advantage of hardware. Today even a developer like crytek is pushing out games which are first designed to run with 6 yr old hardware (conmsoles), unless the game being played is very badly optimised anyone with a 2-3yr old rig all they have to do is move all the settings to max thats about it. There really isnt a need to even look at game requirements if you made a half decent machine in the last 3-4yrs.

Yeah, for me Steam is the most convenient, cheapest, and easiest way to play my games. I have my PC hooked up to a nice monitor that I can play on seated in my chair at my desk with keyboard & mouse, and it also has a 50 ft HDMI cable to output to my TV across the living room, where I can play on my couch with an Xbox 360 controller for Windows. I have over 400 games installed on my computer (about 300 from Steam, 40 from GOG.com, 20 from Direct2Drive, 10 from EADM, 10 from GFWL, and a few more from disc-based games that didn't affiliate themselves to one of my downloadable game services accounts when registered), occupying about 1.5 TB, and they are all available at a single, simple click. And out of hundreds of installed games and demos I've only had one issue with compatibility preventing me from running a game or causing significant bugs/crashing issues, and that was the Total War: Shogun 2 DEMO, which I never could get running for some reason. But yeah, for me, PC gaming has been amazing.

Too bad my account was disabled for fuckin nothing....Woot
Fuck steam!

There are a couple of reasons why this can happen. Happened to a friends account, there is either malware on your system or keylogger, send Steam an email they will let you know why they disabled the account. Usually they do it so no one hi jacks your account.

They should unblock it in 2-3days, email them and ask them the reason.
