    PC gaming is dead, what good games we had this year that can compare to past years ?
    Great games this year? Supreme Commander, Galactic Civilization, STALKER, Crysis, UT3, World in Conflict, The Witcher, NWN2 Mask of Betrayer, The Orange Box, Call of Duty 4. These are the ones I have bought this year.

      42" 1080p TV+ 5.1 + PC + Bluray/HDDVD $200 LG drive = GG.

      How's it like to play games on your console in 1280x720, or even 600p when I'm playing games at native 1920x1080.
      Well honestly I do not advise you to work 12 hours a day on a screen like this because the refresh rate, stability and pitch won't probably be enough to keep your health in a good rate.

      Nice stuff anyway, happy gaming on your system : )

        UT3 sales? It's been abysmal on the PS3 as well, or are you going to ignore that? I'm new to the UT series but it's been not accepted by the community due to "consolitis". To most PC gamers, it was a slap by epic. Otherwise, game sales are doing fantastic if not, there wouldn't be money for expansions. If anything, console game sales are disappointing. They sell for 2 weeks, and fizzle out, while PC games are slow burners, but sell for years after.

          The only ones that were really great IMHO were the Orange Box, GC2 (which is not from this year) and UT3 is nice though few people play it atm.

          CoD4 feels like a console port, NWN2 was glitched to death, WiC is probably fine on clans but is a mess in pubs. My biggest disappointment came with Stalker and Bioshock ...

            The refresh rate is fine @ 60Hz, which should be the norm for TV's and LCD monitors. Everything, including picture quality is fantastic, there is no issue using a TV for a PC monitor.

              Well I think (hope) that is down to the number of PC owners that are buying their games online. In any case I don't think the videocard manufacturers will allow PC gaming to die because then noone will want to buy their products any more.

                    Is that all you can tout? Since when did graphics ever matter?

                      It sold at half its target and it's quite difficult to join good servers ...

                        That's not proof, that's speculation...

                          It is not, there was a statement where it sold at around +30/35k versus 70k expected and I remember how was UT2004 when it was out.

                          The other part is not speculation too, it is me clicking on refresh servers to find few good servers I can join with decent ping ... most of them are empty

                            logon, take a look at how many populated server there are.

                              So post the proof, i'm sorry I can't believe you just like that.

                              "The other part" is speculation, it's based on your definition of good.

                                Graphics are the cream on top of the cake. Gameplay matters to me more then graphics, and unfortunately for consoles, they suffer from both. (20% slower gameplay, odd lag of VCTF servers)
