What games are exclusive to Steam that would make a console gamer....

Let me rephrase, you guys don't have any good complete games. Most of that crap will be buggy, unfinished, beta/alpha stage, etc. Total War: Rome II worked out well for you guys.

We console gamers are soooooo jealous of Train/Truck simulator.

No, what you don't have is the ability to use Google. Good complete games exist in bucket loads on PC.

3 recent games you'll need 3 different consoles to play... or you can do the smart thing and get a PC/steambox and play them on one platform at what would most likely end up being a much lower price due to the frequency of sales.

now while PC doesn't get as many high profile exclusives, it sure as **** get far more than enough new releases to easily rival 2 consoles with healthy libraries during an 8 year generation.

the smartest choice for any gamer wanting the most out of their money:
get a PC/steambox as main gaming platform with just one console solely for exclusives.
PC hardware doesn't need to match console hardware in price when PC gamers save literal thousands from the software they buy.

Pretty sure Daz_man is just trolling, cuz I don't remember him making posts like this before.

I think the biggest advantage isn't the exclusives so much as the PC gaming experience with the ease of use and setup of a console.

I mean, seriously. Greatly more customizable game settings, moddability for your games, complete backwards compatibility with other PC games, the ability to upgrade specific components, access to the amazing prices of PC games, using any control system you like, and the fact that, if you want to, you can just use the thing as a PC.

Really, if there are Machines that are priced similarly to consoles, it will be so good for console gamers to get started on PC gaming without actually needing to assemble their own. I've been talking to a console gamer friend of mine and he's probably going to get one, because I get most of my games on PC so we could play together more easily.

On top of that, he gets the advantages like the ability to mod games and use KB/M (which he realizes is more precise) and access to PC gaming prices. He probably doesn't plan to learn about upgrading the hardware, but if someday he wants to improve it without buying a whole new machine, he can just ask me for help. Which may in turn lead him to learn more about hardware and maybe even build his own PC some day...

It seems like a great idea to me. A lot of console gamers would do PC gaming if it weren't so hard for them to get started on. Steam Machines are a great way to enter into PC gaming.

That's because you guys don't have any....

I love how you act as if PC gamers are in some enemy faction.

I play games because they're fun, not because I follow some blind brand loyalty.

A recent CS game lol. I played that one it was actually kind of fun.

CS:GO was just going to be a CS:S port at first.
