I have always been a hardcore console gamer. Only console gaming. Probably the only PC game Ive played since the days of oregon trail has been spore. However, recent events in my life caused me to sell off my entire video game collection. All consoles, games, everything. So now that money is starting to slowly flow my way again, obviously the first thing I want to do is start gaming again (woot). Stepping back to look at all my options for gaming, I now question my commitment to console gaming. Things have changed in the gaming world and the difference between console games and pc games is not as distinct. Consoles act more like pc's and a huge number of console games make their way to PC. However it seems that the number of PC games that make their way to consoles is much much smaller. Consoles appear more like underpowered dedicated gaming PC's. So I question, why not just build a higher end gaming PC that I could probably get more use out of and still play the bulk of the games I would have on console and many that I wouldnt have had the opportunity to? This is all in exception to nintendo of course, which still operates in the same classic gameing mode they always have. But Im not looking for advice for myself, just looking to hear the view of the GR community on this issue. How do you all see the gaming world in the aspect of console vs pc gaming? Is there a compelling reason to dedicate more money to one or the other, or have they become too similar to really have a preference?
