I'm a 14 y.o. boy who would seriously like to become the ultimate hardcore gamer, but I don't know where to start. I'm already the most serious gamer in my group of friends, and want to bring it even further. Any suggestions (best games, consoles, gaming PC hardware?) If serious hardcore gamer tells me the exact computer that they use for their PC games, that would be a great help (because my parents are getting me a new computer anyway.) Any help would be awesome. Thanks. Wow, you guys are morons. Let me rephrase my question. What HARDWARE/SOFTWARE would you reccomend for a hungry hungry gamer like myself, wanting to broaden his horizons and join the ranks of people such as the writers of Penny Arcade. Thanks, maybe now you people won't need to think so hard.
