[VG]EA: PC gaming hasn't gone anywhere - Page 9

post #81 of 90
It is rather true, no one plays just singleplayer anymore, just ask yourself, it is true.

I just want a good single player game that is done right. So far, titles are looking better but at the cost of making them much shorter, and while that pays off for the new generation of ADHD gamers who will buy anything at any price just to get a solid 4 hours of gameplay and only care about MP, I think it sucks.
I still value solid gameplay vs. a crappy playing good looking one. Proof? I played the hell out of Monster Hunter Tri on my Wii before I sold it.
Today though you can get amazing looking games that are actually good games to play JC2 comes to mind. Since I built my new PC my PS3 is a dust collector.
Based on how a PC compares to consoles the avg. house hold today has PC that is at least a match and that gap will widen long before the next generation of consoles is out.
Every time I start thinking about what the ultimate console would consist of, I end up just making a PC...
Consoles are hassle free and some prefer that simplicity but I on th either hand will problem solve to have the better looking version.

wat?
lmao, I noticed this when I read the title. I was thinking, why would EA say PC gaming hasn't gone anywhere???? (interpreting as PC gaming hasn't advanced or done new things...)

Poor wording..

Prior to the internet there was no piracy as we have now, you just traded games with friends in a closed circle. Also not everyone was willing to share.
You had to know at least one person who knew about computer games. The law regarding digital copyright was still revised.
Laws became stricter, pirating became easier.

That's just the way it is. Jeez, most of them think that Call of Duty has "amazing graphics"....
On net cafés i see 8-12 year olds playing counterstrike like pros.
It also has to do with the parents computer literacy. A console would be easier if the parents have no idea. But pcs have become much better and cheaper now. Also older games are the best for the kids. I am sure the kid will be enchanted with an old adventure game.

I started pc gaming (had experience with amiga prior to that) in the start of the 90s, when i was 13. We did not have a pc (they were expensive) but when we got one, i became a pc player. Had only a short break with the dreamcast. There are opposite cases where young pc gamers turned to console gamers and forgot how to use the keyboard for games.

EA started publishing countless sports simulators, forcing players to buy the same thing every year. If people stopped buying fifa 11 because they own fifa 10 who is to blame? At least they should pay less for an upgrade.

Therefore I can see parents actually bypassing Consoles in favor of giving their kid a PC that can game too, after all, the kids need a PC anyway, and they can actually learn with a PC, with a console you can't do 1/2 of what a computer can! After all, the only thing it cost to upgrade a quad core system to a gaming machine is a Graphics Card & Games, but if the PSU isn't strong enough, then they will need to upgrade that too..

What another $300 and you got a stellar gaming rig?

Console just don't make sense any more to me... Say what you will, I'm a parent and I say PC Gaming IS the future, just ask the kids which game is more fun, the console or the computer games, they will quickly say computer games...
you don't need to buy games at $60, but ur right. i can totally see a soccer mom trying to build her 8 year old son a custom rig.

I'm going off topic a little. This article is based off the development of DARKSPORE.

FAIL!!!!

Yes SPORE was Cute... and needed a Dark makeover.
But Darkspore is not it!!!
Took away the good stuff from Spore and made a LAME MMORGP

Talk about selling out. they had a unique thing and killed it for money.

The Space Ship editor in SPORE Was EPIC!!!
The idea of creature creation to for a character EPIC!!!
Even if the space stage was a little lacking, it was still fun (#$%@ the GROX)

I don't see this game going far.

What do you guys think about DarkSpore

Spore was a waste of time... Will Wright has fallen off the wagon... and any hope of trying to make a buck off their engine is darkspore... and just like the mmo sims, itll fall on its ass... Will seems more interested in commenting about his personal philosophy on the discovery channel than he does making a proper game... but hey who am I? Sure the creation tools are really snazzy, but a good editor does not a good game make... and wrapping a neat tool inside of a turd log, is not the best way to go about selling someone as to the virtues of your work.

This guy hopes the market is online, to explain why Spore collected dust on shelves... moron, any one of the good people on this forum could of taken half the money they blew on this disaster kicked em in the nuts, and called it a day.

This seems like a dodgy answer to a question like: "What are your thoughts about how some people feel PC gaming is a thing of the past due to DRM and many publisher's requirement for a constant internet connection?"
