PC games always force you to upgrade your PC hardware, but some people insist on playing computer games with their PC. What is your opinion about this?
PC all the way!
Take Crysis for example you don't just have the best graphics in a game you also have a huge open world, were everything is destructible, dynamic, realistic physics, has shadows on even the smallest objects, HDR, huge draw distance. Every tree, leaf is its own. Put everything combined together and this kind of thing cannot be reproduced on a games console(PS3/360). Period.
As for ALWAYS upgrading that is not true. If one does their homework you can get a very decent system and stick with it for 3 Years or so and still play all the latest games fine.
However being able to upgrade a computer is what makes it special and unqiue and is not a con, while a PS2 lies in the dust now and years from now the same to PS3, The PC will still be cutting edge.
Furthermore the notion that you have to spend $3000 or so for gaming PC is ridiculous.
The Innovative and in-depth games(e.g. Portal) are usually found on the PC first and the PC being lead platform.
Then you have the online community, Online play is free and there are thousands of servers and can hold much bigger number of players than consoles, it truely makes it a more fun experience. You also will still have people playing old games online that you thought everyone forgot about.
For racing and fighting games consoles are a better choice other than that PC has much broader library of games of all genres.
Furthermore FPS(First Person Shooters) are better playing with a mouse and keyboard, faster, better, more accurate. With consoles you don't do all of the aiming as there is Auto-Aim features. RTS games also if that fits ones taste also is better with keyboard/mouse.
Mods give a whole new dimention to game and can be found for every game. The actual games also cost half of what console games cost.
The talk about Patches for PC games well 360 and PS3 also now require users to download patches so that argument is no longer valid either. And Patches are a good thing.
And also even though people say you shouldn't include a HDTV to a console I'll say this, when person is getting a console they aren't getting all the graphical benefits unless they have a HDTV. And people do say you need a HDTV for "Next-gen gaming".
WIth PC's almost all games, even very old games are able to play games NATIVELY at HD whether it is at 720p, 1080p or even higher than that even before the PS3 and 360 were out.
I also am not being biased as I do have PS3 myself simply because there are fighting, sports, racing games that I find better played on a console as well as some of the exclusives the PS3 has on offer. But I still know the PC is a great platform for gaming and also lets you do so many other things.
