Should I get into pc gaming or not? - Page 16

post #151 of 190
There are some games which are better played using a controller (or a steering wheel setup, flight controls, etc.).

I will not buy another console.

For those games I have PC controllers. Also, PC controllers can usually be used for many years with new computers while console controllers are limited to that one console.

I did pick up a vita and I love it but Im def skipping this gen for consoles. What did you decide OP (PC or Consoles)

I just turned on my xbox 360 after not turning it on for at least a year and after 3 hours play time the experience was So-so.

I turned it on to primarily try Black ops after not playing it on the Xbox for so long. I was actually surprised at how well a controller functioned in my hands after strictly using a M+KB for a year I'm actually thinking about getting a wireless adapter for my PC now.
On the GFX side it felt like I was squinting to see details like enemies in the distance which on a 65" TV shouldn't be happening if I can see clearly while using my PC on the same TV.
Second on the GFX side the COD series doesn't run at 60FPS constantly. It made me have a headache playing the game because My PC is always a constant FPS and I could feel Black ops drop into the 25-30FPS range just like my old 9600gt use to do and I would get headaches then too. COD games may have been halfbaked on for the PC but the fact that I can get a constant 60FPS at 1080p and 8x AA makes up for it.

My over all opinion on the GFX for the consoles is like looking through a window with dirt on it. While on the PC its looking through the window that has just been cleaned.

For racing games (a game i prefer to use a controller on my comp) i just plug in an xbox 360 controller i bought (don't own a 360 lol) windows recognizes, installs drivers thru windows update, and i go! biggrin.gif

Thats why I use it for racing...at least until I can afford a sweet wheel set up. the cheap one's are worse than a keyboard in a racing game.

True that, try playing DiRT 2 with a crappy steering wheel and you're bound to go off a cliff... especially when it doesn't register the turn hahaha

Oh so what if he gets all the pc equipment used too? and all of the games on steam sales? BAM! argument invalidated!

lol who gave you the impression that PC games are not available used? Where do they go after you're done playing them? Do they self-destruct after you lose interest or something?

oh i know you can get them used. How do you think i got unreal tournament 3 and call of duty world at war both for 5$?
post #160 of 190
Definately stick with consol. I know id rather be on a large format display @ 720p getting 30fps with low textures. Why would i play PC with its ultra settings @ 1200p and 16xAA running at 100fps. I also love punching the top of my Xbox 360 to get the tray to open...but thats just another perk with consol.
