For me it did.


Going from gaming on consoles only to this holy platform is like falling in love all over again. Well not that intense but you get what I mean, right ? Lol

I had lost faith in gaming with the Xbox one and all that BS and PC gaming really did change my outlook.

I also know a lot more about computers then I would have if I continued on the dark path. I guess I'm just happy to be playing games that I really love.

Anyone else have any strong emotions like me.

Didn't change my life but I'll put in my perspective.

It's a hobby from the building phase to the performance phase to the gaming phase.

Having control over your hardware makes all the difference.

The first games I played with gameplay more in-depth than "move pixel, shoot other pixels" a la Atari were all on PC, so yes, PC gaming was pretty influential on my views of video games.

Yes. I have access to a wide variety of strategy games from something as simple as Panzer Corps ,somewhere in the middle as Civ series and as complex as War in the Pacific.

A bit. Ever since I recently got heavy into PC gaming, I've spent at least 60 hours in the past month in-game.

I always gamed on PC and on consoles ever since I was a wee lad.

StarCraft 1 got me into PC.
The modding scene kept me on PC.
Then modding inspired me to learn to code.
Now I create software for a living. Not games though.

I'd say so.

My dad brought home a C64 when I was 6 (IIRC) and I instantly fell in love with the thing. Naturally the games were what I dove into first, but that set me down a path that that I've been committed to ever since. Fast forward 30-some-odd years later and now I'm making a handsome living off the skills I learned from messing around with computers all these years.

Shoot, I don't even really use any of my college education in my professional life... but then again I've never personally known any wealthy economists, ironically enough ;)

First game to wow me with its graphics was KotOR. When I first saw Dantooine I was in awe from its beauty. Still doesn't look half bad:

The grass waving in the wind blew my mind. From then on I was hooked on PC gaming.
