Nice teaser of things to expect in a few years...add VR to the mix and we're in for some exciting times as gamers. #14

I imagine it that way:

Markus drove back home, sat down in front of his PC, surrounded by giant piles of cash and started coding a new game that he'll never release. #2.1

I had good internet with SimCity, but could not play it for a full week after launch because of the servers also, every time I want to play it now...I need to sit through an update...which I just end up cancelling to play something else...

Forcing updates on single player games is ridiculous...the game was playing fine the last time...I doubt a patch to fix some obscure bug is absolutely necessary for me to play.

It's not an internet connection problem...... #22.1.2

Online games yes, single player games/modes no...this is just some form of DRM with lipstick.

3 problems.

1. Launch of these games has been less than stellar with the impossibility to play because of server issues...can't play a single player game because of server issues...think about it.

2. Server maintenance stops you from time to time from playing a single player game.

3. When THEY decide to shut off their servers i... #22.1

Except that in Rust, there is no written character, it's a survival game with no "story" to speak of...It's an unscripted RPG, sort of. It makes sense that people would like to play a character that they define (often as who they would like to be in real life or a character that pleases them), not just race, but gender, build, hair...all those options.

What about women players forced to play as dudes? Are we going to be forced to play as women also? Are w... #1.1.3

I think charging for mods is a terrible idea all around...The main issues are:
- Support: There is no guaranteed support...if it breaks with the next update and the modder doesn't're screwed.
- Quality: There is no'll get cheap mods that are overpriced mixed along with great mods...scams and greed to come.
- Piracy: It will become a thing for mods...
- Community: There will be none...nobody will share code. Light side (F... #1

Glad to see my old 3570K is still good enough to run this game...sadly my GTX 570 is not. #4

I don't see the problem with remasters, it's not like they release those instead of new games and lay back looking at the cash roll in...

More content is always better, the games they remake are the good ones anyways...good for those that miss or missed them. #22

A little history on the whole rescuing the princess from a dates back to the Greeks and it has been a popular theme for romance since then.

Mario is the same thing taken to video games, where is the problem!

Edit: BTW, those books are typically aimed at women, get this, some of them actually find it romantic to get rescued... #1.1.4

Civ is extremely well done, has a huge community, is going on 24 years and stronger than ever and has won multiple game of the year awards. How many IPs can say the same.

You not liking it does not make it crap, sorry. #2.1

Seems obvious to me that it's all about personal preference, some like consoles, some like PCs, I don't see the point in arguing.

I was able to convince one of my friends in the past to get a PC instead of a console, cause that is what I prefer myself. It turned out to be a bad experience for him, he didn't like it, had issues he couldn't fix himself...

PC is not for everyone. #9

@mhunterjr Your Walmart analogy is pretty spot on and you answered you question yourself...Steam is like Walmart, prices are a bit lower and there are tons more people that shop there than anywhere else. If a vendor chooses to not sell their product at Walmart they are essentially not exposing their product to a lot of consumers, lowering their visibility and potential sales.

Case in point, I go on the Steam store almost everyday, just to see what's on sale and such...a... #4.2.3

I don't think you're supposed to have your kids play M rated games, so guns explosions and killing are technically not ok for kids. #16.1

To be fair, you can get a regular 290 for $399 which is more than you need for 1080P gaming anyways.

You also don't need an i7 for gaming, an i5 ($250) will do just fine.

But granted, it's still more expensive than a console. #2.1.7

I also like the new DSR feature, I can't afford a good 4k gaming monitor but if I get a Maxwell card, I'll be able to down sample from 4k and get better graphics on my 1080p monitor. Looks promising. #6

But But but, PC gaming is dying, I learned that on N4G! /s

"Intel’s Broadwell CPUs will bring Iris Pro graphics to socketed processors, which will compete directly with AMD’s APUs, allowing for super small gaming builds with capable on-board graphics."

In other words, Intel's next gen CPUs will bring gaming capabilities to most PCs without having to fuss with a dedicated GPU. #11

-> Why not game on your phone (or other mobile device)?
he's talking about computing power not controls or screen, you have games on your phone, it connects to your TV, wireless, you grab a bluetooth controller which pairs with your phone, which is still in your pocket, and play on your tv. You plug it in when battery's low...just like a laptop.

-> Why not game on a roku box/Amazon Fire TV/etc?
with no more consoles where will the games be?
