after playing games on pc for a solid year........
my gaming spirit was reborn, games just run so smoothly, look so crisp and everything runs/loads faster.
It's great, isn't it? And oh so simple.
Yet there are many, many peasants still contentedly wallowing in filth, happily consuming whatever slop Sony and Nintendo sees fit to dump into their feeding troughs. Unlike them, you realized your ignorance. You took it on yourself to just get up and walk out of the pig pen, and experience the beautiful new world just waiting for you.
Congratulations on your rebirth.

tc wait til you discover the 3ds . when you can play magical games that remind you that graphics don't matter at all, and best of all they're completely portable.
fire emblem awakening, theatrhythm, gunman clive, mario kart, pokemon, devil survivor overclocked, luigis mansion, kid icarus, donkey kong 3d, mario , zelda , mario and luigi series, VLR, etrian odyssey, rune factory, smt, bravely default.. most recent pc or big console games can't compare to games like these imo.. games made with heart, games you can replay a thousand times. and that's without even touching the entire ds backward compatibility library with games like castlevania, mega man, kirby, 999, contra 4 etc x infinity
though i will agree pc is the next best platform for gaming atm.. especially with its indie scene, and backwards compatibility with the entire pc library . looking forward to the avgn game in a few days on steam! as well as the big terraria update :D

Nintendo may be cheap when it comes to their hardware choices, but their games are still top-notch. Nintendo's consoles are the ones one need to own regardless if one has a good PC or not.
Super Mario Kart is the single best Mario Kart ever!
I emulated a ds once. My soul vomited. Psp is the best pocket pal.
Yeah, but I mostly meant stuff like resolution and anti-aliasing. Doom is a good example. With engines (?) like ZDoom or Doomsday Engine, it actually looks pretty good even today to me without actually modifying anything, just upping the resolution. Now play it on SNES on a modern monitor and it indeed looks awful.
The same goes for the current generation of consoles as well. Dark Souls on PS3 looks kinda okay. Now play it on PC at higher resolutions and anti-aliasing and suddenly it looks significantly better. It's quite cringe-worthy to see people compare graphics on youtube with those 360p, heavily compressed 30 fps videos, saying how the next generation doesn't look any different from the current one.
Did somebody say ... MASTER RACE? ......Reporting in.

Welcome to the club.
I'm going to go out on a limb here and guess that you still have whatever console(s) you had BEFORE you started your little PC gaming experiment...
...and that you STILL play games on them as well.
a PC is nice to have, but it doesn't REPLACE having a console for all the releases that come out on them that will NEVER make it to PC.
Maybe for those of us who played and fell in love with the SNES when we were younger, but it probably isn't for most kids today.
