Only Problem With PC Gaming

You want an easy way to use a K+M on your couch? How about a fold out coffee table?

When I get home I pick up my wireless 360 controller, press the xbox button to open windows start, then navigate to steam, then navigate to a game. I guarantee it is faster than my PS3 doing the same thing.

My Vita is the fastest though since it is always just in sleep mode, I turn it on and BOOM I am playing from exactly where I left off.

You know, what I find so stupid about all these "PC gaming sucks because" troll topics isn't so much that they all claim ignorant things like not being able to game from the couch... What I find stupid is that these days, the people making the topics claim to not be anti-PC, claim to be PC gamers, etc. As though those comments might somehow lend a bit more credibility to the absolutely r******* statements they make.

That second picture is interesting, the first is not.

Any links how to do a build like the second picture?

Does a complaint about PC gaming, valid or not, ever make it through this board without someone getting their panties in a twist?


It really wasn't a valid complaint. Just like complaining you need a $3000 computer to enjoy games or that you have to upgrade every 6 months or your computer stops working and/or games suddenly look like s***.

What would console peasants say if I went to their board and complained that the Xbone sucks because I'd have to buy a TV to play games on and all I have is a monitor. How about if I said that PS4 is bad because they break down every 6 months and i'd have to buy a new one? What if people came in constantly to ask the same stupid questions over and over? "So when are you guys going to get Star Citizen? OH THAT'S RIGHT... NEVER! MUAHAHAHA".

Neat, but positioned like that, you still have to lean forward to play. Can't lay back and actually relax on the couch that way. Lapdesk is about the only way to do that.

To be fair, a lot of people say that even here on the PC board already... :P heh

So what's stopping people from buying a chair that's just as comfortable as a couch? Just get a really fat and juicy one you can plant your giant butt in, and play with a controller. You are now a lazy but happy bastard.

I like how people will spend thousands of dollars on a great living room set up, 60inch tv, speakers, couches etc. Then they'll go go and spend another $1500 on a computer. Then go office depot, buy a crappy $70 desk and then use a dining room table chair and complain they like console gaming better cause there pc is at a crappy desk and its not comfortable. Invest some money in a nice chair, get a nice desk and your all set. Having a proper desk and chair is just as comfy as a nice living room set up. Youll plenty of space, leg room and just be totally comfortable.


If you really wanna play in the living room, with mouse and kb sometimes then yeah maybe you need a little tray table or something for keyboard games

That's not just one, but *two* ways to sit back comfortably on the couch and play PC games on your TV.
