Nope...they give me headaches...then again, so do the new console games. I will go back to my 2600, genesis, and NES and be happy.

Re: Almost Wii

Sorry, but unless you have a separate PC dedicated to PC gaming with 2 gig memory, newest and most fancily packaged graphics cards, surround hooked up, etc, etc, PC gaming is inferior to console gaming for the average person. Now for people that have built their own PC's like some of those here in the thread, that might be a bit different. But everyone has a TV (or 2), anymore they all ahve surround, and you can now get a brand new console for 250. Games are roughly about the same price, PC's might be a bit cheaper, but if you just have a daily use laptop or PC, some of those games take up so much space, it's not practical. Just my .02 from someone who has done both.

honestly, you cant say PC games suck or consoles suck. they all have good games in my opinion. PC is the grand daddy though of gaming.

Re: Almost Wii

And let's not forget the cost of a monitor that is comparable to my 32" flat screen HDTV.....

actually.. i see it the opposite way. i find it less practical to spend money on something that has 1 purpose when a computer, like you said, is around the same price and serves many purposes. that is practical to me. and as for the monitor thing, yes monitors are somewhat expensive.. but when you buy 2 19" lcd monitors for $170 each.. well, its been about 10 years later and im still using them. i decided to buy them though.. i still have a 19" crt monitor sitting at home collecting dust.

yeah, but you dont sit 2 feet away from a TV set like you do a computer, so that is a moot argument.

there was a 25"(i believe) Widescreen flatscreen plasma monitor at Circut City for like 700$ if i remember. sitting2 feet away from a 25" monitor>sitting 5 feet from any 60" Widescreen. line of sight owns.

then theres the whole "well hook your pc up to a 55" tv and see how your PC game looks, itll look like garbage cause PC's arent meant for those resolutions" then again, a buddy of mine hooked up his xbox to his 19" monitor and it looked like **** as well.

though PC games for me are few and far in between. has to be an awesome FPS like Quake/Doom/Prey/HalfLife or a badass space game (DarkstarOne is ****ing awesome at full resolutions). other than that, the rest are eh.

as for the "Most Innovative" games are mostly pc, eh. i think the most "Innovative" PC game ive seen has been Prey, and thats on everything else(Xbox, PS2) as well. Halo was very innovative for its time, it was really Combat Evolved when it debuted. Grand Theft Auto III was amazingly innovative, going from 2d to 3d free roaming within 4 years work from the ground up is an awesome innovation, and will be the groundwork for that series for years to come.

I think out of all those games only one i actually played on PC is like the orginal Duke Nukem other then that i have the whole rainbow 6 series and such on Xbox wher ethats all it counts.

im just not into those type of games. This is why i prefer the console game over PC :approve:
