People like what they like....I grew up on Consoles, but I also made the switch to PC...But I will still play the exclusives on the 360 and the PS3...Can't play Uncharted,God of War and The Show on my PC...Can't play Halo or Gears on my PC either.....And when The Xbox 720 and PS4 come out, I will cop them too...

I just wish that they would Bring Madden back to the PC...

no tragedy here fam, I just haven't seen anything to blow me away like I Said...I'm NOT a graphics wh0ore...so that extra draw Distance, and 1080p Max settings on the PC don't impress me enough to be like "wow I need to put the money towards this... I'm happy with the consoles that's all... I use my computer for work and web related stuff ...my gaming consoles I game on...

To be fair a good amount of games on consoles aren't HD, they are upscaled to 720p

Just to name a few off the top of my head

Battlefield 3 runs @ 1280x704
Halo Reach runs @ 1152 x 720
Alan Wake runs @ 960x544
COD (i know MW/MW2 and BO all run @) 1024x600 - 1024x608

And a good 80% have 0 AA and run around 30fps (excluding f!ghter/racers, this generation has been good about giving both genres 60fps)

Not all games are under 1280x720 but a good amount are and even the ones that do run @720 use blurring filters, no AA etc.

I find this funny considering none of us PC gamers on the site brag about how much we spent on our PCs. In fact we actually sit here and show you guys that say you need to spend $1000 how you DON'T need to spend that much to have a good rig. Of course that gets over looked though.
Exactly, kids keep acting like you gotta spend $8000 to build a PC.


And people saying you have to upgrade every few years is bullsh*t, my secondary PC rig hasn't been upgraded in almost 5 years and it still runs everything on the market better then on PC's. We brag? about what? not once have i ever said the specific amount i spent all i said was they run better, look better and for the most part you can get all the games cheaper.

And like i said before if you just want to play on consoles that's awesome, i don't give a fu*k.

you need to ask for you money back
EDIT - i seen all in one pc in the post. those PC's werent meant for gaming. they put a good processor in those PC's but they put sh*tty graphics chip in them which is why you cant play games.

did you not look at the specs of the computer before you bought it????

People like what they like, but the PC can do EVERYTHING, I mean EVERYTHING that a console can do, only better... Its all preference, I really don't know how Console fans can argue anything else other than preference...

no but thats the thing I did get it for performance, it runs everything else beautifully

but it lags on newer games that require u to have a-blow-it-out-ur a.ss graphics card

and who says All-In-One PCs cant be upgraded? I can upgrade the memory,HDD,video card ect. right now if I wanted to but I aint paying all that $$$ just to play games on my PC when my 360 (which was alot cheaper) is 7 feet away from me
