Only Problem With PC Gaming

#1don_sfPosted 8/18/2014 10:23:37 AM
I used to be a pc gamer, but recently only had time to be a console gamer because if im out all day, driving far with friends, restaurents, playing football, tennis, gym, I come home and I just wanna sit down relax and play. Its easy grab the ps3/4 controller, press one button, turn on tv and boom your in. Relax with a big tv etc.

But I remember with pc gaming I would always have a 24-27 inch monitor, and be 'glued' to my desk with keyboard and mouse combo. And I actually prefer playing games like gta on PC because mouse is so much more accurate but its just that sitting in a chair on a desk thing that just putting me of.

But regardless I will do a crazy build i7 + either titan or gtx 780, no water cooling because thats just too long. But it sounds so depressing being tied to the desk.

Thought I'd add its interesting that people debate over keyboard mouse vs game pad BUT different games require different controllers. I never have and never will play fps game on a console, I dont understand how one can use two analogue sticks to play it, moving from one side to another takes ages, plus its so hard to be accurate.

Also games like racing, I cannot use keyboard of game pad because they both feel crap. Im a driving enthusiast, I drive a bmw in real life and like to do drifting and street racing (legally), Without a steering wheel, I dont understand how it can be enjoyable.

Must either be really bored at a desk job or live a really sad life if this sort of thing gets you your jollies.

Run HDMI cable from GPU out to TV in.

Get wireless KB+M and/or joypad.

You are now PC gaming on your big TV from your couch.

Yeah, I'd like to know too. I can't think of anything except buying some kind of lap desk you'd have to haul out every time you wanted to play.
