Re: vs. PC (please no trolls)
I'm done with pc gaming and I for the most part detest console gaming because of the crappy controls, at least for FPS's. What ruined pc gaming for me is the way too high cost of games now coupled with the fact that I'm no longer able to sell them on Ebay when I'm done with them after 10 hours of play. F you DRM! Sorry, but $60 for maybe 10 hours of entertainment (sometimes only 5) is impractical for me and I can't justify spending that much with all of my other expenses. I'm looking at you COD:MW2. I'd wager a lot of other people are coming to realize this as well. PC gaming as we've been blessed to know it is officially dead.
I think back to all of the great titles I've played over the years on the pc and the lack of DRM on them that made them such a breeze to install. Now we're in the era of 2 hour installs with one hoop to jump through after another. I don't want to be forced to activate my game I just overpaid for. I don't want to have to have an internet connection just to install. I don't want to install Steam or register for a Windows Live account or whatever other bs they come up with. I just want to play a game for God's sake! The almost complete lack of gaming over the past year has definitely saved me hundreds of dollars in the cost of games and hardware upgrades. My current system is the oldest one I've ever owned and I still have no need to upgrade anything on it other than the hdd which can wait at least another year.
As for consoles? They are great for racing games and any other game that doesn't work much better with a mouse/keyboard setup. In other words all FPS's. If they would just come out with a decent setup for mouse/keyboard that would work on ALL FPS's for consoles! At least with a console game you can still sell it after you play it...as far as I know anyway.
We live in awkward times… too late to vote and too early to start shooting.
