Pc Gamer Story: I bought a console and I was disappointed

post #1 of 53
Thread Starter 
Well, I was looking at the new 4gb xbox 360 slim for 200 dollars and I decided to buy it, but little did I know I would regret this. I bought the console got.

1.) Red dead Redemption
2.) Halo Reach
3.) AC BH
4.) Black ops

After Buying it all my friends were playing black ops so I decided to play it with them, but god damn they just play black ops 24/7 and they never ever touch any other games beside it. So I decided to play my other games and I did not get the same feeling I would get when I was pc gaming sitting on my desk with my nice monitor and my nice chair for back support.


Does any one have that feeling? When you buy a console and you feel like you are not getting the full exp, and you get very very bored easily? You just don't get the same feeling when you console game.

And there we have it. PC gaming remains superior. What's there to discuss?

My xbox is hooked up to my monitor at my desk. I still don't like playing it. I'm getting ready to try to sell it.

I get a perfectly fine experience because I'm not an elitist; I like gaming on the computer and consoles. Each have pros and cons.

THANK YOU!

I thought i was the only one! I got a PS3 3 months ago with a number of exclusive games as well as games that i had on my PC that i couldn't do without. I was open to any form of gaming since i love gaming in general plus my gaming laptop broke a couple of month before. I needed something to cater for my gaming needs... hence i bought a ps3 on sale.

I played it - games like bfbc2, mw2, gt5.... I know this may sound bad, but after playing these games over the period of a month trying to get enjoyment, i just felt saddened by the fact that so many people played on consoles. I kept coming across parts of the game where i thought "This feature would be much better optimized on a PC".

It's like having a world where the majority of people support Hitler - in the sense that they're supporting something wrong. IMO console are just not the best way of having a gaming experience. With PC you can actually immerse yourself in the experience of that particular game, plus theres more variety of games on PC. Only thing consolers understand is FPS, Racer and RPG... there are hundreds of other types of games on PC with huge communities supporting them.

Having a night gaming on consoles is frustrating to say the least.

I was originally a Console gamer but.. the decision of buying a PC rig to game on, was the best decision i've ever made in a while. No regrets whatsoever
