every year is a good year for pc gaming.

Been gaming in stunning 1080p with 8x anti aliasing on EVERY GAME for the last 6 years!

KeiserSosay47884803d ago

I agree. I finally got mine this past year, and it made me kind of pissed at my 360...well, my ex 360, lol. I mean, C'mon! BFBC2 for 5 bucks with better graphics, more players, better community, etc...can't beat it.

not a very good list. BF3 and witcher. APB Reloaded, first one was trash. Age of Empires Online is hardcore farmville

tdrules4803d ago

you have never played Age of Empires if you consider it a copy of Farmville

Ducky4803d ago (Edited 4803d ago )

Seems to be missing games like Shogun2, RedOrchestra2, TrackMania2, and a hand full of indie games (Magicka, Terraria)... along with the continued evolution of existing valve games. =/

This list is far from complete, I know. These are some of the major ones that got my interest, and I wanted to share. I could easily do a list like this every week for why PC gaming is awesome.

zackacloud4803d ago

1-Infamous 2 on pc
2-Type-0 on pc
3-Ps2 games HD remastared on pc
4-Psp games HD remastared on pc
5-FFXIII-2 on pc
6-KillZone3 on pc
7-Gears of War 3 on pc
8-Uncharted 3 on pc
9-WKC2 on pc
10-Sorcery on pc

Yes good reasons

dirthurts4803d ago

I don't really get what you were trying to do there...???
Gears of War and Unchared I would like to see on pc, but the others, meh.

zackacloud4803d ago

I would see them also on pc.

But I think companies same as Square Enix , Konami and Naughty dog ,etc. afraid to develop on pc.

The reasons:
1- Mods in their games.
2- More Budget.
3- Lack of experience in PC developing.
4- Extract files from their games

This my point of view.

Ducky4803d ago (Edited 4803d ago )

... You should've mentioned LPB2 and LA Noire over 'remastered' games, as bragging about being able to re-buy old games that are no longer compatible with your hardware isn't that smart a thing to do.

zackacloud4803d ago

I was to mention a loooooot of games but there just 10 reason and i put these randomly because there than 30 reason.

zackacloud4803d ago (Edited 4803d ago )

So who mention Uncharted she/he troll!!

Why didn't u just say u totally wrong??


I'am not talking about exlusives but talking about games itself and their gameplay.

KeiserSosay47884803d ago


I thought you were being sarcastic and pointing out the fact that PC players don't get to play console exclusives. If that isn't the case, then I'm sorry. If it is, then you're a troll.

BeastlyRig4803d ago (Edited 4803d ago )

Arma 3 & star wars next year!! yeah!

pandehz4803d ago

Lol you are trolling.

Trying to say its better to be a ps3 gamer?

Rofl I dont have time for second rate ps3 games trying to emulate pc graphics n tech.

zackacloud4803d ago

Oh gears of war and FFXIII-2, mean ps3 gamer errrrr!!

I just explained the games itself I don't care about consoles if it PS3 or NES.

Just tell me who don't wish to play FF,GOW,GOW,MGS,UC,KH,SO,GT,LBP and a lot of games series on pc with the high settings and amazing mod.

I use to be a HUGE PC gamer back in the day where PC's had alot of exclusives.

I am currently playing The Witcher 2 and thoroughly enjoying it.

To be honest with you, PC gaming as been incredibly stagnant. There are hardly any games on PC, that I can't already play on my 360 (which is what I prefer). Sure the graphics aren't as good, but it's still the same game, so that excuse does not work.

Playing The Witcher 2 atm, whats next though? Diablo 3?. This very well might be the last time I upgrade my PC, as there is hardly anything left to play on the platform.

And please don't start dishing out the whole higher res/better gfx nonsense, because that shit doesn't matter, otherwise I would be playing mulitplats on my PC, instead of 360.

Of course I totally understand the avid PC fanboys to defend their platform (just like PS3/360 fanboys do), because I use to be one.

eccothedolphin74803d ago

Well, there are lots of PC exlusive games on the market. Arma 2, Red Orchestra 2, The Witcher, Dwarfs?!, Minecraft, Starcraft 2, Diablo III, Shogun 2, The Old Republic, Guild Wars 2, League of Legends, and tons more!

A lot of mainstream gaming sites are console focused and they don't talk about these games, but that doesn't mean that they aren't out there.

1PC2PS333604803d ago (Edited 4803d ago )

95% of console games are on pc, in actual hd instead of some shit resolution, they cost less, have mods, and soon, all ps3 exclusives will be on my pc too...when i emulate them and they look 10x better than they do now

btw, i have a ps3/360

only, they just sit there cause the graphics are so bad i cannot play them, and the witcher 2, uncharted 2 looks ugly to me now, the witcher 2 ruined every other game, just like crysis did in 2007

pc is my number 1 choice for games by a giant margin and i am completely unintrested in consoles except for Dark Souls, until the ps4/xbox720///won't be long!!

2011 new consoles please???

HenryFord4802d ago

so - you have no clue what it means to actually emulate another set of hardware? Emulating the PS3 - this won't happen the next 10 years or so.

Another thing is: It is virtually impossible to make a game look better then it does on the original hardware. Sure - you can throw some gimmicks on it, but you won't get any real benefits from it.
