Steam... it is really that good...

So I was at my brother's house last night, he is a big PC gamer. He finally convinced me to sit down with Steam and give it a fair go. I am blown away. For starters he has a 360 controller hooked up to his PC, which is great given it is my favorite controller of all time. The graphics put the ps3/360 to shame, his PC was about $1000. The convenience of steam really took me by surprise. We could switch between games quite quickly and the selection destroys the ps3/360. Everything, at least it seems that way is on Steam.

After playing some Skyrim, Portal 2 and Psychonauts I was pretty much sold. After seeing how cheap games were on Steam I don't think there is any going back. Sure a PC costs more than a console, but I will make that cost back 10x over by saving money on games. I think today I will put my 360, Vita and ps3 on Ebay. I cancelled my Wii-U preorder. With the money I think it is time to build a gaming PC and just live with Steam. It does everything better than consoles. Better graphics, better selection and better prices. I am planning on building a PC for about $1200. I might hit $1500, not sure on the details yet. Plus when games require more power I don't have to completely upgrade, I can upgrade components one at a time.

Yeah, obvious joke here. No one actually owns a Vita.

TC, there is also something called Humble Bundle, and GreenManGaming along with a few other sites. Most places give you Steam codes anyways, so it doesn't matter where you get your games. So, your topic really should be "PC gaming... it is really that good."
