While having played games like Wolfy 3D, Doom, and Myst at friends' houses, it wasn't until Xmas of '97 when I played Diablo and Myth: The Fallen Lords that I went out and figured out how to build a rig of my own that would run those immediately.

Then again, I'm only paid modest amount of salary and I have to think about the necessities, so I only went for what I thought the best. PC lets you play games AND do so many other things with it. The choice was pretty much made for me before I even thought of it.

Steam sales. I could only get a few games a year as a console gamer. Or wait several years to wait for a $60 game drop to something like $15(Waited 4 for RDR and was severely disappointed). So I used some savings to build myself a really nice rig at the time for $800 and now for the price I would spend to buy 3-4 games a year, I can buy 10x that. I don't even need to upgrade my system unless I want to take full advantage of my 144hz monitor to keep up with the modern systems.
FPS games with a kb+m and a 120/144hz monitor is absolutely godly.
