Why you wouldn't want to game on pc

#151urukhai2005Posted 8/9/2014 2:32:29 PM
I have a laptop and my old pc, I game on my laptop more so than pc.
My pc is so old it don't run the new games anymore but not only that ,,,it doesn't run my really old games as well lolllol. if I tried to upgrade I would have to upgrade everything and that cost a lot pc is gathering dust.
I really like the Steam service with auto updates and collections that pc gamers have but there's still issues with games not being compatible on new pcs and the fragmented versions of windows and graphics cards floating around causing this issue. Gaming on PC is a lot of hassle, most pcs will not run games at ultra settings, some games have compatibility issues, upgrading pcs is not that easy a simple graphics card change will not get you far if other components are holding you back like the motherboard, PC gaming is usually done on a keyboard and mouse but you can get joy pads, pc is way bigger that's why steam boxes is being anticipated, it's not aesthetically pleasing , pcs can do more like internet but you can do that now with your phone.
I've a laptop and already it's getting attacked by virus and avast sometimes would say " threat detected", most pcs will get virus 100% of the time. Even though PC have better hardware the games is what really matters. If you look at the PC section of gamefaqs top 10 you will see the games that are popular and notice they are old games! Gaming is about playing the games not playing with the hardware. Most casual gamers like 9 year olds simply don't know how to defrag and fix pc components like motherboard.

Here's the only one I can think of, personal preference. Some people simply prefer playing on a console than on a PC. You can shout and scream the advantages that PC gaming has over consoles till your blue in the face, but if it's not their preference to play on a PC, then you might as well be shouting at a brick wall. That's just the way it is.

Not dealing with PC Water Walkers like Clouddx. That would be a definite plus.

Because the majority of games I play are only released on consoles.

PC hardware doesn't need to match console hardware in price when PC gamers save literal thousands from the software they buy.

if your only taste in gaming doesn't extend beyond JRPGs.


If that were the case, these people would only be playing SNES, PS1, and PS2.
