Anyone else find them gaming less or not at all on the PC after getting a PS3? - Page 2

post #11 of 128
Well I cant really be unbiased here since I have not owned one of the latest consoles. in fact I have barely played at all on an xbox 360 or ps3.... only for brief moments at a friends house or whatever..
but the way I see it is that a pc is a far more diverse machine...It can do every thing a console can do and better.....but it also does every thing a console will never do... as far as console exclusive games I dont mind waiting for the next gen console release so that I can buy a ps3 and xbox at stupid cheap prices...plenty of pc titles to keep me busy until then....

There mostly single player once you complete them they go back in the box for ever games imo.

That's also my issue with console games, it even surprised me greatly that console gamer is bigger then pc gaming when i started following this forum and gaming channels on youtube. I always thought PC game was much bigger than console. My favorite (and most played) console game is FFX and i got around 250 hours in that. Compare that to PC: Warcraft 3 TFT alone must be over 2000, TF2 600 hours, AoE 2 very rough estimate 500 hours but it's a very long time since i played that. LoL probably also around 500 hours. WoW around 1000 hours. And that's not counting "borrowed" games.

Hope this doesn't turn into another PC vs console flamewar though rolleyes.gif.

Haha its fine I still play PC games for online multiplayer games such as CSGO but there are so many Console Exclusives that are amazing yet are not on the PC. I'm mostly into single player games which the PS3 excels at.

Games like MGS series, Red Dead Redemption, Uncharted Series, Heavy Rain, Infamous, Valkrie (spelling is wrong) Chronicles, many JRPGs, and many new and upcoming games like the Last of Us, and new Metal Gear games you will never find on the PC (I'm sure I'm missing a lot).

I still like the PC for some games but it seems like the PC games are mostly mediocre console ports now and the PC rarely gets good single player exclusives anymore and for me playing the PS3 or PC isn't a big deal because my PS3 sits right next to my PC monitor and I can switch between PC and console instantly.

Yeah but that a whole different thing.

Pc has been lucky however with mods for games like skyrim, you simply can't compare console skyrim to pc skyrim.

I've never been a fan of mods though because I like to play games the way the designer intended and I'm not a fan of Skyrim in general as I found the game to be too reptative and easy. To each their own! smile.gif

I wouldn't count mmo's as those can only be played on a pc and are meant to milk money/time, there are plenty console games that I have gotten plenty of gaming time out of. If a game has lots of replayability then I play more, if not I don't. I have played a lot of pc games once only and never again just about as much as I have with console games. I think it is more of an issue with what the developer puts into a game
