    Just my opinion.


    I never really got into the whole console thing.


    Anyone else more into PC games over consoles?

    racing games
    gay on both

    rpg
    PC

    stragy games
    pc

    i will get and xbox360 when price drops.

    consle's are like i mac's you need to replace them after 5 years well you upgrade but console's dont have upgrades so speen 300 then 300 in 5 years.so i wait until price drops. pc and consoles's should do hand and hand, thats why im getting xbox360 and vista

    depends on the game..

    platformers....adventure games......side scrollers.......fighting games...sports...are all better on consoles

    fps games.......role playing games......strategical games.......RTS games.......god games.....Sim games......are usually all better on PC

    its a toss up.....depends on your style of gaming........

    Console gamers tend to be very casual..

    pc gamers tend to be more "hardcore" with thier games

    hell yea PC games are always better than consoles and always will be, its because console games are made on PC but cant run like a PC does.

    games are even better when your computer stats are as follows:


    motherboard:BIOSTAR TForce4SLI NF4SLI 939
    CPU: AMD 64 ATHLON X2(duelcore)3800+
    Mem:CORSAIR XMS 2GB (2 x 1GB)
    DVDRW/CDRW - DVDRW BENQ DQ60 BK
    Video: nVidia GeForce 7800GT
    HDsystem: WesternDigital 74GB @ 10,000RPM(master), WesternDigital 250GB @ 7,200RPM
    Case: X-Blade black and yellow
    Sound: no sound card yet(someone give me an idea of what type to get)

    ^^^ that sounds pretty close to what I'm gonna be buying this month, hopefully. nice system man. check this.


    I decided to go with a 19" lcd widescreen, is in the mail, i expect that by saturday.. for 130 bucks LESS $$, i figure i am fine with a 19 inch... considering i'm used to this shitty 17" CRT NON-flat screen POS.

    but check it.. here's what i'm looking at building.. I speced out what I want and will build myself:




    ASPIRE X-GEAR
    ABIT AW8D
    PENTIUM D 940 3.2G (800MHz)
    MWAVE 2GB DDR2 533 (1GB x 2)
    MITSUMI 1.44 FDD
    NEC 16X DVD+/-RW
    WD 160GB 1600JB UATA-100 7200RPM 8MB (Bare drive) w/ 18" UV-BLUE ROUND CABLE
    eVGA 256-P2-N554-AX GF7600GT KO 256MB DDR3 PCI-E W/HDTV & DVI
    and gonna go with XP professional with SP2.


    i'm honestly gonna either use my old Sound Blaster 5.1 card OR just use the onboard sound and save the upgrade for later. because basically, i have a stereo system accross from my computer with 2 big ass yamaha speakers and a 500 watt receiver connected to my sound card... and that shit sounds FINE.


    for you soundcard upgrade, I personally would suggest Audigy4 or SoundBlaster X-Fi high-end soundcard. They are your best bets right now for quality.

    maybe I should go with a 10k rpm hard drive instead?


    does it make much difference, or is just basically the newest technology?




    oh btw, no console could ever compete with a PC... it's just not possible... consoles are good for game selection, like for instance, I really want to play that game Black on Xbox.. but I mean, I will never get to.

    computers are a bitch kinda, because they outdate themselves quickly, whereas consoles will always be putting out new games for the same exact specs until the console company puts out a newer system. so that is definately a downside to PC.

    but otherwise PC > consoles in all aspects basically.. no hate.. just saying.

    tomb raider.....indiana jones.......indigo prophecy.....


    if it were a point and click adventure..........its a bit debatable as to it being better on what system....but thats a problem that point and click adventures being an almost dead genre right about now...with the exception of the longest journey sequel and indigo prophecy kind of renewing them..but they are more towards the newer adventure title..and not so much the old style point and click......either way.....i guess its a divide between the new adventure games....and the old adventure games like kings quest.....quest for glory....sam and max.....maniac mansion.....

    Point and click style adventures are definitely better on PCs, IMO. But the newer school Tomb Raider/Indy types are better on consoles.

    I love FPS and they suck cock on the PC.

    I just wanna press the on button and shoot the shit.

    PC gaming is far too exspensive and tiresome.
