Pc Gamer Story: I bought a console and I was disappointed - Page 4

post #31 of 53
I play my 360 and PS3 at my desk along with my pc games, comfort is never an issue. However yes boredom can set in, I think it has to deal with the fact that on a PC you can do whatever you want all while playing your chosen game.

Want to search the net and check your mail while playing CoD? you can do that [ Makes it easier for me due to multiple monitors so console on one,pc on the others ]. Consoles do not offer that, hence the use of Ipod touch or the use of your smart phone while you play. Makes it a little easier on a console. I can also say that console games to not feel as deep as a PC game. Maybe because you had to pick up a new gpu to play whatsitcalled. feels more personal in a weird way. All the parts decisions, the shipping,the actual build you know what I mean? just feels more personal.

as for PC gaming remaining more superior? 150 Million PS2's sold, 47 Million PS3's and even more Xbox 360's. The average home does not have a rig solid enough to even play GTA IV. Which is superior? who cares..what you enjoy is what matters just not to anyone else.

I feel you. I bought a 360 slim first when it came out and wanted to try out some console gaming. It's been sitting there since June. I should probably sell it.

I just get so much more enjoyment gaming on a system that I personally built. I like having all sorts of control over the graphics settings. I like mods for games.

Basically console gaming bores me cause there's no tweaking or system building or overclocking or benching involved.

Also ... PC games look worlds better. And free online is a bonus for the those rare occasions when I play an online game.

I game on the PC. For some games I use an Xbox 360 controller because it feels better. But it's still the PC.

Building is part of the experience , the game doesn't start before you put in the disk(or boot up steam , w/e) , it begins when you open your case....


Which would also seem to answer why i don't get bored doing that for 8 hours.
