It's a great time to be a gamer pc Xbox or Playstation.

Nintendo? Not so much, barely 3rd party support meh

As a 3DS owner I am very pleased with that console. In fact it's close to overtake the original Xbox as my favorite gaming platform. I don't know what the fuck you are talking about. Must be something you pulled out of some dirty hole of yours.

Yeah, if you have the right specs it's pretty great. You get most of the third party games available on consoles plus a ton of PC exclusives. The biggest problem is the lack of Nintendo games. But if you combine a high-end PC with WiiU/3DS, you really don't need much more.

But then, the biggest problem is the lack of Sony first party games. But if you compine a high-end PC with a PS4 and a Nintendo console, you really don't need much more.

Well, personally I need everything. That's why I own a PC, PS4, PSV, XOne, WiiU, and 3DS. I need to play everything.

But if I was forced to choose, I'd leave the PS4 out. Its library is largely redundant when a PC is introduced into the equation, and its first-party software is hit or miss.

Well, isn't Nintendo's library pretty redundant when you mention any prior Nintendo console?  I kid, I kid.

I too play on anything that has games that interest me. No matter the brand. I don,t yet have a XBO, mostly because they keep releasing their games on PC, and barely have any exclusive that stay on their console. So it's like they're almost telling me NOT to get one. -___-

Xbox One is a hard sell. And Microsoft isn't doing itself any favors by closing internal studios and releasing content on PC. It also hurts that Halo, Xbox' flagship franchise, is in decline, or that Fable seems to be lost and gone forever.

If you own a PC and PS4, there's almost no reason to get Xbox One. I'm hopeful that will change over the next 18 months. I'm bullish on Gears 4 and Scalebound. And it's possible ReCore and Sea of Thieves will be good, although both, I believe, will be playable on PC. Cuphead and Below look really good, but, again, they'll be available on PC.

I've ditched consoles for this gen and went with a gaming PC instead. Too many advantages. Strategies, better graphics, mods, cheaper games - that' just the top of the list. Should PC get all Halo and GeoW games, It'd be the ultimate platform.



Wii U is a GCN 2 - I called it months before the release!

My Vita to-buy list: The Walking Dead, Persona 4 Golden, Need for Speed: Most Wanted, TearAway, Ys: Memories of Celceta, Muramasa: The Demon Blade, History: Legends of War, FIFA 13, Final Fantasy HD X, X-2, Worms Revolution Extreme, The Amazing Spiderman, Batman: Arkham Origins Blackgate - too many no-gaemz :/

My consoles: PS2 Slim, PS3 Slim 320 GB, PSV 32 GB, Wii, DSi.

nope. compared to the 2000 era its a major letdown. and its even more baffling aanyone seeing this mess in a positive light.

 

ok. younger folk that might think the only difference between pc and console is you can switch graphics cards will have fond memories of this time...



Hunting Season is done...

I am curious to know what great 1st party games Sony made during the PS1 era that iv missed out on? I own a PS1 and i can tell you, aside from Crash 1,2,3, and GT1, everything else was 3rd party devs. I am happy to have you list me more.

Back on topis, PC gaming has grown so much, its almost to the point where Consoles are trying to follow PC instead of PC trying to follow Consoles. Alot of gamers underestimate how big the community is. Dota, LoL, WoW alone have just as many gamers playing those 3 games then the entire 8th console sales combine (or close to) I think more gamers need to make the switch fast because upgraded yearly hardware is going to be the thread with future generations. More games, more options, more players, and more power. Thats the way i look at it.

Crash 1-2-3-Racing

Gran Turismo 1-2

MotorToon Grand Prix

Syphon Filter 3

Jumping Flash! 1-2

Twisted Metal 1-2

Rally Cross 1-2

Ape Escape

Legend of Dragoon

MediEvil 1-2

Legend of Legaia

Porsche Challenge

MLB series


The list goes on. But I'm on my cell right now and can't be arsed for more. Wikipedia is your friend. 

You just listed 1st party games, im talking about great 1st party games. eg: Syphon Filter 3? lol ok, Twisted Metal? right..

Ape Escape was a great game and Medievil wasnt, however i enjoyed my time with it, i enjoyed the creative art style behind it.  

I am not even going to try to compare those games to the N64 1st party lineup. Its not even a competition.



It IS great time to be a PC gamer, but not because of PC games. It's console games ported to PC, that run at higher resolution and frame rates, that make it great.

Honestly, I miss the good old days. I felt like in the early to mid 90s they were still making AAA PC games. Now they only develop major titles for consoles, it seems, which is fine. It just makes me less inclined to upgrade my PC. Obviously 4K is better but, thanks to the common practice of upscaling, 1080 is still perfectly acceptable.

I'm honestly enjoying the games on PC like XCOM 2, and for years I;ve njoyed TF2, Planetside 2, Starbound, How to Survive 1-2, Project Zomboid, Stardew Valley, Starcraft II, Diablo III, Heroes of the Storm and a load more that aren't direct console ports and aren't all about realistic visuals. I don't think it's made great only because of console ports (it's like saying PC is only great thanks to consoles which isn't really what the thread is about).

I'm not sure what kind of AAA games you are talking about because so far I'm still seeing those happening on PC, just not the same way you think they are.
