You absolutely do not have to spend $800 to high/max most games at 1920x1080, My ~$200 (when I got it last year) overclocked 660 can do that - there's the occasional Metro/Crysis 3 title, but those bring any system short of a $2500+ monster to its knees anyway, and IMO the gameplay isn't worth investing in the high-end GPUs necessary to max them at a decent framerate. Sure if you're OCD and have to have 60 fps at all times, you'll have to spend more, but most people are willing to make a few performance compromises that come with the price/performance GPUs.

Console market share killed arena shooters because they're impossible to play with a controller.

I actually hate how new hardware releases very quickly, it makes it difficult to keep up at times and its a steep learning curve on what hardware to buy and stick with for 3 years.

I'm hating Kickstarter and Early release games right now. It's a good idea and totally optional, but I see developers collecting their money and then stopping development.


I have more of an issue with Kickstarter, at least with Early access you still get a game to play even if it is an early version.

Well 4 years ago 60fps wasnt even the standard. People struggled to max Crysis at just 30fps let alone 60fps. If anything I feel that cheaper videocards have gotten a lot stronger relative to the games out


This is, has been, and will be false. Games have been running 60fps since the 80s. More demanding games run worse than less demanding games.
Some games are designed to function at a lower framerate, normally more demanding games like Crysis, but there is no magic "well now 60fps iz teh standurd lololol".
The only thing this ever applied to is consoles, which are still std 30 for the majority, and have been ever since PS1.

Mass early access in the Alpha/Beta stages getting people to buy the game try it and give up on it before it's even released/finished.

The most I paid for a video card was around $400 and I'm able to play games at 1920 by 1080/60FPS.


lol no you can't... I said all games. I guarantee I can find a game that you won't be able to do a 60fps all day with a $400 card.

Companies like EA, thinking they can do a better JOB then Valve at having a online platform


When did they say they can do a better job? You can only come out with a competing product if it's superior to the competitor?

That's because Ubisoft hates their PC customers. To them were all all just dirty pirates and are no value to them.
