What is your specs?

and you do realize that Consoles are becoming more and more like half assed PCs (which is why I dislike patches/updates on consoles)

I actually had a better experience with PC than console, least I don't need an update to run games well, because my PC can run it regardless

./agreed.

i haven't gamed on my PC since WoW but for every hour i spent in game i spend another 5 min outside of game trying to fix all the crashes and bugs. maybe i'm just not "smart" enough to game on a PC but console gaming is just so accessible from a hardware persepective. well worth the price and hit in graphical fidelity for me.



Sounds like a personal problem.

The two PCs i personally take care of and have full control over have installed absolutely any software and/or hardware (except for a TV Tuner from 2005, because there's no drivers for Win 7) that has come their way in the past 5 years. The previous PC I took care of personally, as you say about consoles, "just worked" for the 4 years before that.

tl;dr Take care of your PC better. PCs aren't jsut for everyone, maybe that's why some game communities are so much better on the PC (DOTA is exempt). It's a very nice filtering system, since the oens that can't operate a PC properly are just stuck whining, complaining, and harassing on consoles.

Edit: Now with more elitism.

you apparently havent heard of LoL more then 30 million players, almost as big as starcraft in korea, the biggest e sport game in europe and in North America and even though its free to play it brings in more profit then WoW.


I was unaware of that. Wow.

 

The only time i've had hardware problems on PC is directly because of consoles.

Like how Darksiders doesn't want to recognize any controller except for an XBox 360 one....

Really? I was just playing Darksiders last night (downloaded from Steam) and it works perfectly fine with my keyboard. That's a strange problem.

It works with the Keyboard.

Just not my PS3 controller or any other PC compatable controller.

Same thing for Console gaming now?
With firmwire updates and the game and the console.
You can't play if you don't update, if the server is down your fucked as well.
Console gaming are getting more and more restrictive.

its stuff like this is why im afraid to jump into the PC gaming tank. Some people say its real easy, some others say its not. IMHO there are just too many variables, I shouldnt have to think to play a game. But i did just get this new PC and I do want to get into Steam, seems more stress free than buying the traditional disc

Why shouldn't you have to think? It's not like it takes a lot of thinking lol. No need to go Socrates on us. Steam is as easy as easy can be

Do you have Motioninjoy? That emulates a 360 controller.

PC gaming is alive, well, and the king of everything. You just suck at computers.
