A bit worried about getting into PC gaming.

#1AxelPoePosted 3/27/2014 12:32:20 PM
I'm not that ''in the know'' when it comes to PC. I would like to get a gaming laptop, mainly for Minecraft, Steam, and Skype. But what is keeping me from investing is the hassle it is keeping up with a PC. Viruses, hacks, defrag, and all those issues I always see happening to PC gamers where the game just crashes and all you see are all these numbers and stuff. All these are the general idea why I still find console gaming best. Simple and easy, just get on and play.

Still, I would like to give PC gaming a try. Any advice for me on any of my stated points?

Thanks in advance.

I've never had any of those problems, lol.

I'm sure you would. You're going to have to wait before it's created first.

Install a decent antivirus program.
If someone is cheating online, report the user or change servers.
Windows will automatically defrag your hard drives.
The only time I had a game crash is when I was overclocking.

Exaggerated problems.

I wouldn't bother, If you think console gaming is best then stick with that.

Get some clever friend to make you a gamer PC, and ask us or him any questions you might have. We're here to help! Except that 75% of gamefaqs people hates you. It's just a general rule, no offense and it's nothing personal.

The "Game" in your list has very low requirements.
Go ahead and buy a cheap netbook.
