This has literally never happened to me in 20 years of PC gaming.


As I understand it, it happens(/ed) a lot with pirated games, as cracks are either hiding viruses or pop up as false positives.

So, when you do something illegal things don't work right... lolz Such a con of PC gaming, not like pirating consoles games is any easier, or any less illegal.

Oh I agree. I hate Windows 8, it's terrible. But if you're looking for a "simplified OS within Windows", well that's what Metro is for.

Good for you, OP. Enjoy gaming in the way you find the most fun. Consoles are right for some people.

I personally play a lot of indie games, so I just threw a $100 video card in the PC I had to have anyway and called it a day. (Open box model from Microcenter, $50 off retail.) And then, when it came time to upgrade, I bought a slightly stronger processor than I otherwise would have, and bumped my SSD up a notch from what it might have been without intending to store a few games on it.

But... why are you posting this on the PC board?

TC telling PC gamers you prefer consoles is like telling Muslims the Quaran is bad compared to the bibble

Why is this topic here? If someone made an "I prefer PC" topic on any of the console boards, they'd be modded so fast...

OP is full of ignorance and non-problems. I play DOTA, and I'm married, have a full-time job, and effectively a second full-time job as a volunteer firefighter, which takes up several of my evenings with continued training as well as leaving at any time to respond on calls. I found time to learn the game... I may not be pro, but I'm good enough I can random any character and typically do OK.

PC gets AAA cross-platform games too. And guess what? You can get them on physical media! And guess what else? You can play them with a controller! ON PC!! And guess what ELSE? YOU CAN F***ING PLAY IT ON YOUR TV FROM YOUR COUCH!!!!!

This is the same sort of stupid console troll topic with the same stupid console troll arguments you see here all the time. Literally the *only* really good excuse I see is platform exclusives like Gears of War.

I have some consoles that I do play occasionally - for the exclusives. And that's pretty much it.
