Anyone else find them gaming less or not at all on the PC after getting a PS3? - Page 11

post #101 of 128
I have a PS3 for Blu-Ray and MGS. But now that I have an HTPC, I almost never use it.

That is until I get Metal Gear Rising and Ni No Kuni.

How is it illegal? You stick the disc in your CD drive and open it with the emulator. Acquiring the BIOS is only illegal if you don't own the system. If by "properly" you mean absolutely complete 100% accuracy, then you're just nitpicking. It does well enough. I play Dragon Quest VIII on my PC and it looks amazing upscaled, I don't really care if the emulation is 100% accurate if it means that an old PlayStation 2 game looks as good as some of the new PlayStation 3 games. I use my Playstation 3 controller via Blutooth, or my wireless Xbox 360 controller, whichever I'm in the mood to use. I have an HDMI cable running from my PC to my TV, and I mirror my main monitor to the TV. That's also how I watch Netflix/Hulu/TV (via my TV tuner). That's what PC is all about, options. You can do anything you want with it. If you only use your PC to play PC exclusive games, then that's why you aren't spending much time on it. A PC is good for so much more than that.

Yea I meant with 100% accuracy it can't be done with the PC. I find emulators to be a PITA when I can just spend $10 on a game that I don;t have and have it for good on the console HDD and trophies also if the support trophies.

I have no need for an emulator if I already have the game and like I said I could care less about graphics. Console is much more convinient I find PC gaming to be much more time consuming setting up games and what not. PC games are not like what they used to be now most are console ports or are easy/boring games released from devs with a low budget but we're treading terrority that I already mentioned days ago.....I like the older PC games I'm not a fan of the newer PC games because they're just too easy.

Now it just sounds like you and others including em are arguing for arguing sakes though as nothing new is being said....we're just bringing up things that were already talked about the bottom line is that the new games for the most part are lacking majorly when it comes to difficulty and/or storyline and gameplay compared to the older games.

It's hard to find a game on any platform that will satisfy you like some of the older epic's would. When Dishonered is highlighted as the best game in most PC gamers opinion to be released in '12 for the PC that's pretty sad considering how darn 1 dimensional the gameplay is in that game and how easy it is and lacking in general.

Diablo3 and Torchlight 2 are both button smashers and nothing more....both were boring the only game that I enjoyed on the PC this year was Hotline Miami.

The PC is about flexibility, not about convenience. If your first priority is convenience, then all I can tell you is that you're a true console gamer at heart, and that you're doing the right thing by only using your PC for PC exclusives. It makes percent sense for someone who only concerned about sitting down and playing a game to just play on a console. I, personally, prefer to be at a PC that can do tons of things, even if they require a bit of configuration and setup beforehand.

It's interesting that you mention Hotline Miami after denouncing Indie games earlier in the thread...
Natural Selection 2 is my personal favorite game of the year for 2012. It blends FPS and RTS gameplay perfectly, and at only $25 I can't imagine anyone being unhappy with it. I also mentioned Legend of Grimrock earlier, and I really think you should give that one a shot if you haven't already, since you mentioned some old school RPGs in that list of older PC games you enjoyed.

Actually it seems that you're just arguing for argument's sake, as you've fallen back to typical hearsay about PC gaming spread by console gamers. Consoles are more convenient definitely, since it's designed for casual gaming while PC is far more flexible. But setting up games and all that stuff... most console games require installation nowadays, and installation is far more quick on PC if you have a decent and maintained hard drive. So consoles are only more convenient than Steam games because they boot instantly, due to the light OS. But for most, PC is more convenient for obtaining games thanks to Steam. And Steam's interface is far more convenient than PS3 or XBOX Live, especially since it's not as slow as a snail.

The fact that most games nowadays are easy is not exclusive to PC. It's far more common on consoles, and this trend began with consoles being the target audience. So I really don't know what rock you live under. Games right now are generally easier, but this is mostly the case on consoles and not PC. There are exceptions, and most of them are on PC.

And what's this nonsense about "low budget"? You're really just making things up and/or have no idea what you're talking about. First of all, it's both obvious and nothing new that the highest budget games are usually either multiplatform or console exclusives. This was the case from '04-'07 too, in fact we've seen larger budget PC titles in recent years, namely Crysis ('07) and The Witcher 2 ('11). Let's not forget SWTOR which had an absolutely massive budget. The big budget SP console games just put all that money into voice acting.

Dishonored does not have one-dimensional gameplay in the least bit. Have you even played it? And even if you have, it doesn't surprise me that you've missed... everything, as most console gamers do. It's your precious console exclusives that are completely one-dimensional. The Metal Gear Solid series and Uncharted series, which are the biggest SP titles on PS3 and in today's console gaming world, consist of doing the same thing throughout the game. No matter how you choose to play these games does not affect anything, except for stupid little unlockable items in MGS. They're more repetitive, and consist of going down the same exact paths, doing the same exact things, watching the same exact cutscenes, and result in the same exact thing every time.

To avoid this one-dimensional console gameplay, look to PC. But back to Dishonored, it lets you choose stealth, which is brilliantly thought out and has clear paths for stealth killing or sneaking and killing nobody at all. This actually affects gameplay in various ways; it affects characters' reactions toward you, it affects how certain scenes play out, it affects the ending, and it changes the design of the world itself. Killing more people makes the world more dark, and more plague rats and weepers will be found. Up the difficulty and it is not a very easy game, it provides quite a good challenge that forces you to be strategic. It is a much better stealth game than MGS because it is not one-dimensional. Oh, and you said Dishonored is "lacking in general"? And how is this? The story is simple in essence, a revenge tale defined by the players' actions, but it flows with a unique style and has a ton of lore.

I'm really curious as to the real reason for your completely inaccurate bashing of PC gaming and games in general. It's not like PC gaming killed your family or something, unless your family consisted of Korean StarCraft players. Perhaps PC gamers have put you down too many times with their superior attitudes? I'll admit, that whole gig is silly, but gaming is just a hobby after all.

Since I got my PS3 I mostly play on my computer with the controlled connected through bluetooth.
I'm often using my TV as my computer screen at the same time so that I can play with my surround sound,
so It's not that much of a difference from using my actual PS3 instead of the computer other than graphics.. tongue.gif

Other than that I prefer to play on the TV regardless of PS3/PC/Xbox/Wii since it's more social than shutting yourself in with headphones at your lil' computer screen.

Honestly I can't think of 5 games worth playing on PS3. But I can think of a whole bunch I rented and didn't even play for 1 hour.

Emulation is pretty much perfect to superior to playing on a real system on for pretty much everything but PS2, Gamecube, Wii. and a few odd ball systems. And PS2 emulation has made a whole lot of progress in the last couple years. PS1, and most older systems have been perfected via emulation for years now. And you can play them in HD through emulation. I played Panzer Dragon on SSF awhile back, its a Sega Saturn emulator, the game ran perfectly, no glitches/slow downs.

If you're having trouble getting a particular emulator to work, ask me, I've been emulating games for like 8 years.

I stopped reading the long winded responses to my posts as they were leading to nowhere's (please don't take offense, it's just not worth any of our time) but the bottom line is that the consoles and the PC both have excellent games and have their own set of pros/cons.

I like the PS3 due to the huge backlog of amazing games that I missed and the new games being released that are more than likely going to be great not to mention that most new PC releases are console ports.

PC still has the best multiplayer, mod support, and graphics no doubt it's just been going downhill regarding PC exclusive's in my opinion that's all.

I would like to think that we can all agree about this.

Mods.

Its like a free map pack that instead of paying $20 for a few maps you get a whole new game, guns, armor, story, characters, areas, graphical upgrades, patches, etc, oh yeh its all for free too. Its like the opposite of DLC where they take things out of the game and make you pay money for them, what mods are, is they give you MORE stuff then what was already in the game FOR free for YEARS after the game was out depending on the modding community. This means that games are maintained and fixed by communities that love them rather than servers shut off by EA a few years later.


You really need to talk to more PC people if you don't know how superior PC is to consoles.


Here is a list of modded games I am playing or will play
Morrowind (pre 2000?)
Skyrim (over 60 mods)
Fallout 3 (after I finish the previous two)

Planescape Torment (completely fixed patched and upgraded to be playable in 1080p and added in all the thing the game company didnt have time or money to, thats right they WENT INTO THE FILES AND PAST and MADE ALL THE THINGS THE DEVELOPERS COULDNT DO TO RESTRAINTS, ON ONE OF THE BEST GAMES OF ALL TIME FOR FREE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!, sorry Im that ecstatic about it. They added in so much and fixed so much.

ME1+2
I have a few mods for these one which depressing the mouse makes the game go 10x faster so all the annoying traveling is cut down along with graphical upgrades that help a ton.

Crysis and Crysis 2
Although I didnt mod these there were many mods along with map making tools so there are complete custom campaigns anything from FPS mods to cthulhu vampire hunter mods.

Dragon Age Origins
Awesome game with insane mods, but needed to wait a bit before replaying it. Replaying DA1 with mods is 10x better than a fresh play of DA2, who knows someone might mod DA2 to be a decent game someday.

Free games:
Dune 2000
C&C Tiberium Sun
PoE like D3 but good


Old games resold in a package? Nope not on PC, PC gives its old games away free legally. Abandonia has a ton of free games and certain old games become free over time. And those that you can't buy or find anywhere you can torrent, and I don't mean pirate. There is sometimes no other way to get old games, if its not on abandonia or anywhere else you can probably still torrent it. Good luck getting an old game for xbox on a disc that gets scratched.

Want to play an old SNES game you have but dont want to dig it out of the garage, dont want to waste space on it, etc. Well you can get an emulator and play the game on your PC. And I know this is technically wrong to use ROMs and Emulators. Maybe your SNES is broken or unreliable. You can play most old consoles on emulators. Sure PS3 can play PS2 but that is it.



The only advantage a console has is being able to sit on your couch, sometimes a PC is too far away for that. I have however laid in bed with my projector on the ceiling playing games with my mouse and keyboard or 360 controller.
