Is PC really worth it?

#1TruePowerSeekerPosted 2/23/2014 2:35:58 PM(edited)
A friend asked me if it was really worth it to blow a bunch of money on a computer just to play some games.

Hell ****in' yeah it is.

The console war is over, both consoles have gone casual, neither won the war. They both just kind of...gave up.

Is PC worth it? If it's what you like, yes. If not, then no.

But this isn't a zero sum game. There isn't a best. There's what you like. I still like SNES games. I don't need to prove that they're better to validate my nostalgia. I just like them. Case closed.

But anything can be a waste of money according to someone else. Granted I'm also a programmer, so it's kinda handy to have my tool in trade around. The wife has a 360, a Wii and WiiU and I've played them a tiny bit. I had to play Gears of War 3 with her. I've played them a little, played some Super Mario U. But would I buy a console? No, for me it would be a waste. Unused furniture. But this is not an indictment of consoles. They're perfectly fine. I'm just not interested in them. It's not strange to me though that someone would feel the opposite about PC's and favor consoles.

it's not that big a deal.

I wish people would give it a rest with the platform pissing matches.

That's because no proof is needed. It's a scientific fact that SNES > everything.

Don't get me wrong there are a bunch of games on PS3 that I still like to go back and play. I also have a ton of PS2 games that have me dusting off the system and hooking it up. I have some extremely old games on my steam account and I play them often.

For old-old consoles I use alternative means of playing them now due to not having space to keep a bunch of old systems laying around.

I just find it funny how something so blatantly wasteful as spending a bunch on a computer can be ignored upon booting up good looking games.

That's about as likely to happen as the rapture.

In fairness, most of those screenshots aren't particularly impressive, assuming you haven't been a console-only gamer for the past 10+ years.

The people that get really obstinate/trollish about usually have very little going on in their lives.
