    PC gaming is dead, what good games we had this year that can compare to past years ?

    yeah. PC gaming is dead. That's why 9 million people play WoW on a console.



















    ...oh, wait.

    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.

    I mock and pity you console gamers. Particularly those of you, like the quoted poster, who thinks it's an either-or proposition.

    And gaming on the PC is far superior to console gaming, particularly when it comes to FPSes.

    IF that was the case you would all be catching something seeing that your beloved Unreal has had the pleasure of being played in a great system.

    Almost every thread I see has people bashing the PS3, and saying PC is superior.

    You should see UT3 community as a whole, rather then telling all the PS3 owners to drink from a different water fountain...

    I am console owner, always have been. I like playing with a controller rather than being hunched over with a KB/M. I also like playing on my 50"1080p HDTV from the comfort of my couch.

    There are positves and negatives to owning either version.

    Stop being so stuck up, thinking your better than PS3 owners because you PC cost you a small fortune.
    i like the ps3 but the pc version is still better

    "sub and underpar"
    Please stop proving his point....

    PC gaming is failing because gamers want quick and easy. PC takes work and a brain, windows does not help in that regard.

    PS
    PC and COnsoles are becoming more and more the same. More people have Computers in there living room every day recording TV shows and controling everything. Consoles are getting more expensive and doing more things.


    The gap is narrowing.
    If you don't know why monitors cost alot more than TVs and why at the Office you are not working on a TV stop wasting my time and yours. If you want to wear bigger glasses than the one you are currently wearing, continue to work on your TV.

    PC gaming is failling because sales are disappointing. PC takes not work and a brain, PC takes time for nothing, you think that you are smart setting up a PC, guess what ? you are not. Smart people are not configuring PCs in this work. If you are that smart stop wasting your time, trying to prove that point and make money, invent or do something creative, that's what most of real smart people do, not grouping together telling other people how smart they are.

    You are the caricature of this old-school 1337 mentality on PC.

    PC sales decreased in Japan, smart phones and integration of tools such as email into other gadgets made the PCs redudant for most of the people there. Japan has been the country launching the trends in hi-tech for the past years.

    You don't see many games being developed that maximize the potential of the latest PC hardware because the market doesn't justify the development costs.

    If you want to talk about facts; PC's can usually run the same games on higher resolutions at a higher framerate. For a lot of people that qualifies as looking better.

    You have a big box making noise and hot where a monitor is plugged with the TV, well maybe you do not care, but some people care. Most of NORMAL people out there care actually, a PC is very expensive is alot of hassle. You can almost do anything on it but it is often way more complicated, costs more and often deliver sub and underpar results compared to the same price equivalent.

    So quit that elitist tone, if PC platform is actually failing for gaming there is a reason. Not everybody is willing to spend the price of a console every two years just on a piece of silicon called a graphic card ... In fact outside of geeks NOBODY will do this.

    The world has changed by friend. Sit down in front of GEARS on an 36 inch HD set and tell me it looks better on PC. It doesn't. It's also one of the only shooters I can honestly say doesn't necessarily play better on PC (in fact the PC release was a cluster).

    Does this always hold true? No, Bioshock was a game that looks/plays better on PC. But Shooters are generally the exception to better games being on consoles anyway.


    The fact is, the current gen consoles -- 360/PS3 with HD support look better than the VAST majority of the PC games. Yes, your shooters play better on PC.

    I've seen many people (like myself) that made a $400.00 investment in an XBOX 360 to play one game -- Gears of War. I haven't regretted one penny. Console titles (not Wii really) Look great and most of the best minds in game development are developing for consoles.

    The PC versus console argument graphics and gameplay wise all changed in the last year.

    I do the same because I need a comp for my work anyway, but most of the people do not want to spend that much money for that.

    Sorry to open your eyes, but unless you spend twice more on equipment like I did, you will get sub quality, a Sound Blaster is hardly the equivalent of an equalizer and you will need to buy a decent soundsystem.

    So can you quit not trying to understand what I meant ? Since I was replying to the guy who said that he cannot understand people buying consoles instead of PCs ? Or are you as stubborn as him ?

    Great, you can work in CAD, guess what ? I don't care ...

    Exactly! Which is why console gamers are so clueless. Half of them probably don't even know that you can hook up a PC to a TV. I think I should just gear my quote towards console gamers.

    A word to the wise ain't necessary - it's the stupid ones that need it.

    Man these forums are going to be plaqued by kids now Should make the PC and PS3 forum seperate.

    Hey, just based of of my personal experience's. I don't have any current generation consoles. When I boot up a console it is either for NFL Fever 2002, or Paper Mario on N64. I have not played KOTOR 1 since the 15th time I went through it.

    Playing games like Zelda for Wii, Mario Galaxy, Gears of War...GEARS outshines or comes close to basically any game that hit the market last year on PC OR CONSOLE.

    Granted, I don't buy a lot of games for my consoles, but there is just some GREAT gaming out there for them. I hate the limitations of console gaming and think they're still years behind PCs in that respect with community building and game support, but overall, once you get a top to bottom incredible experience of a game like GEARS, which is what i bought the 360 for, I realized that I had been remiss in rushing to judgments like this.
    I would much rather play

    Gears for PC
    UT 3 for PC
    Crysis
    Bioshock for PC
    Call of Duty 4 for PC
    Company of Heroes
    World in Conflict

    Than any of those games you mentioned. Multiplat games will always look better than console games. Yes I am a graphics *****. I don't care. I like shiny!!!

    I think you got the wrong idea.
    As far as i can see some ppl want the ps3 to have there own section.
    Just to eliminate the confusion between talking about pc and ps3.

    Btw the pc will always be superior anyway as we can upgrade quicker than the next gen console comes out.but thats not the point.
