to keep me interested not 100FPS in HD.......So PC gaming may die but not at my house and with the attitude actually thinking MW3 is a great game
then we are all doomed

Exactly why I said that PC gaming will come to an end.

If you ask me PC gaming is already dead.
In the last 20 years I have met less than 10 PC gamers. The amount of console gamers you come across now-a-days is well, infinite.
When the next wave of consoles come they will more than likely dwarf the PC market [even more so than they currently do]
PC gamers are the minority and will always be the minority. redface.gif

Right now I'm a dedicated PC gamer, when the next Xbox or Playstation are launched I'll probably be spending most of my time on one of them.
I'll be using a mouse and keyboard for FPS and RTS of course! thumb.gif

Why on Earth would I want to go to console?! I'm sick and tired of getting shafted by crappy ports and not being able to play with my buddies.

Personally I don't see why people go so far out of their way to hate on CoD; it's just a video game.
Sure, I don't like the series anymore but I'm not going to judge and rage on somebody because they prefer something else.

I agree with him on that. I just wanted to beat the campaign to get zombies and I thought it was horrible to play through the entire thing.

About the PC gaming dying thing though I kinda agree. Although as long as PC's are around we will always be able to play PC gaming as it stands now. (by that I mean every game ever made for PC up till now). That kind of legacy is hard to destroy. PC's will always have games like Minecraft, Terraria and Spiral Knights. I also don't see the computer parts industry going anywhere any time soon as there sill seems to be a market for high end CPU's and GPU's, if anything we are the test segment for further mobile and console iterations of Nvidia and AMD's technologies.

However I think it is pretty much inevitable that eventually we will get a console that can use a mouse and keyboard to play games like Diablo 3, SC2 and Steam/Origin/Games For Windows games. If that were to happen and I could play all the biggest games I wouldn't have to upgrade my PC anymore because all the new PC games would be a la Spiral Knights style wise.

Well PC Games were never mainstream to begin with if you really look back, it catered more to a selective bunch. And it still does. The console wins every time because every kid usually starts with a console.

But PC is just a far better experience. I can't imagine playing Skyrim on a console. There is no way Skyrim on a console looks even close to what I see with a gtx470 at ultra settings.

I thought World At War is better than MW2 and MW3. Lots of servers had modded maps taken from previous version of cod games as well. I mean come on, MW2 and MW3 took the pc modding community out of the equation. Yet pc gamers still buy it? MW2 was the last infinity ward game I buy.

I don't see the need to bad mouth them. I love consoles. My favorite games of all time are on consoles.
Consoles are cheap, easy, and efficient ways of playing games. There's nothing wrong with that at all.

To be honest, I only made it half way through. I couldn't force myself to go further. The gameplay was just so.... mad.gif
One of the reasons I thought the MW3 campaign was so good because it was non-stop, badass, ZOMFGBQQ gameplay.
And I've never understood when people say that they have no story. They must be like skipping all the cutscenes or something.
The MW story is actually really impressive.

Yeah, but we're not talking about consoles now.
Imagine, if you will, IF your console was able to run Skyrim on ultra. What if every console could run AA, dynamic lights, physics, etc. Because eventually they will. And at a certain point, the advantages of having a gaming PC may become very, very thin. Especially for the price.

Campaign =/= Servers

I have seen a huge growth in people just throwing hate towards to 75% of gamers that just play CoD. I understand the frustration. As I'm sure you can tell from the essay I just typed. But, please, all you're doing is just spouting ideas. People are funny. There are patterns and trends that we get into without even realizing it or looking out it. Even with gaming, I mean.. I'm in college now and the amount of people who play CoD is astounding. The day after Uncharted 3 comes out, I beat it, then I get some nice volunteers to join me on an Uncharted weekend. I told them it would just be like them watching a movie. I got a big TV and my Logy Z2300s, and hooked up a few more speakers for surround sound; it was great. Anyways, these guys had never even heard of Uncharted and were those type of "Xbox for live, maaaan" type of people. To make a long story short, they were blown away. And it was just fascinating to watch these guys. I mean, all the Uncharteds had blown me away, but they were experiencing it for the first time. A sort of interactive story, as it were. They loved it. But, even then, they just went back to playing CoD, because that's what they do. And as I've said earlier, there is nothing wrong with that. And just because you prefer your genre of game to be something more along the lines of like a Skyrim or a Mass Effect or a story game like I like, it's like a genre of music. People like their own and that's that. I don't see the need to intervene. I mean, by a comparable media, music genres are like that. The most listened to genre (hiphip/rap) is the most generic. And there's no doubting that. And the fan base doesn't care. Just like the fan base of CoD doesn't care that's their just being sheep about this company. I like the think of PC games and story rich ones would be like a sort of slower rock genre. RPG games would be like dubstep I think with all the different styles and methods.
Hurray branching the topic really far for no reason!! Wooooooo
