What was your catalyst for becoming a PC gamer?

I was touched by God.

Playing games is all that takes my mind off it. :(

This reminds me of of the scientist dude from Thor. and made me chuckle XD

I've always been a PC gamer. Grew up on Maxis games and DOS stuff.

I've also always been a console gamer.

There was no catalyst -- when I was younger, I had an SNES, and the family had a PC with Windows 95. It's just what was available.

We didn't have a computer in the house until highschool (which was a family computer, with a upgraded geforce 3) and they always were that illusive thing that I never had.

So I built myself a gaming computer.

Originally it was games like Warlords, Doom 2, and the first 2 Civilizations. As time went on I moved more towards console gaming, but just in the past year I have rediscovered the joys of PC gaming since I bought a new rig in February.

The biggest factors to me are the huge selection of games, especially cheap ones that are actually good, and a much wider selection of strategy games which over the years have become one of my favorite genres. Oh yea, and Counterstrike. Lots and lots of Counterstrike...

I had just finished playing assassins creed on ps3 with my non-hd TV. Then I saw my brother playing it on his new custom PC with max graphics and 1080p. It corrupted me, so I scrimped and saved until I could afford my first build.
Divided by night...
