2) PC games usually have more people per map than Xbox360 and PS3 games.

4) Computers can do more than just play games.

Financially, you're right, it's more expensive.
I agree with one through 4 but the last part bothers me. How is PC gaming more expensive? 99 percent of the console fanboys cry "$$$$" when it comes to PC gaming yet none of them take into consideration how much their, even decent, TV was. Sure the console alone with some controllers and some games may not run over 500-700 bucks, but how can you call PC gaming expensive when you go out and buy a 1500-3000 dollar HD TV to play your console on??? Even a decent screen is going to run you 600-700 bucks so that already puts the total up around 1300 dollars and that is for a cheapo console setup. They cannot just brush the cost of their TV under the rug and then cry "$$$" when they see a nice gaming PC. I know I have seen plenty of console setups that far out surpass my high end rig, price wise, and I for one will take the high end do-it-all rig anyday.


Maybe they brush that cost under the table because they play on mommy and daddy's TV...since they still live at home.

And videogames cost more on consoles.

Well a lot of good PC monitors are pretty expensive too.....but I bet a lot of console gamers are on mommy's TV
I have a bit of a different setup, as I game on a 37" 1080TV, as my PC is an HTPC. It shares with the DVR as well.

As if GoW was a good game with an amazing story line, CliffyB passed judgement on other games.

CliffyB took part in making Gears of War, Correct?

Gears of War is made by Epic, Correct?

Epic is part of the PC gaming alliance, Correct?

The answers are, yes, yes, and yes.

Kinda, weird.

Not everybody wants to console game. I like gaming at a desk, not out in the middle of my living room. I don't like having another controller or two laying around, I've got enough peripherals. My keyboard and mouse are always there anyways, so why not use them to game. I like my living room neat with a TV and no other crap laying around taking up space. I don't want to use a keyboard on my couch to type messages onto an XBox. Hell, I really don't even like laptops, but I tolerate the one I own. I'm on the internet enough that using my computer makes more sense to game anyways. And above all, I'm not into overclocking a non upgradable box that really only does one thing well, until it becomes outdated in a year.
