I'll be fine for 1080p gaming for a few years, i5 2500k gtx970

the problem is im 33 now and I find myself no longer interested in the vast majority of games....ATM im playing Friday the 13th and for some reason in this glitch filled game I have over 100 hours in it yet its fun and then the only other game I play atm is Zelda on Switch. I don't think I'm burnt out b/c I play games once or twice a week. I'm convinced that I'm going super casual and I'll probably end up being a console gamer next gen b/c having a gaming PC isn't worth it if your not taking real advantage of it...makes me sad in a way.

I'm kinda in a similar boat, turned 32 just last week and I find it hard to get into new games.
Lately been playing Final fantasy XII remaster and terraria mostly even though I have tons of games I haven't played yet that are supposed to be right up my alley, like witcher 3 and dragons dogma.
If brute force doesn't fix the problem, you're not using enough of it.

I'm sort of a bit similar-ish. I shall now procede to waffle on......

I'm 48. There aren't many new games that interest me. My PC is a lot weaker than the MASKOAAA's, but I no longer care about upgrading it. I mostly play Warband and some casual and retro. arcade games. Even if the long awaited Bannerlord were to be released now I'd probably just make do with what I have.

If my PC suddenly conked out completely, I'd probably put together a 'super budget' build to replace it. In the (far more likely) case of my R9 270 failing, I'd probably just make use of my CPU's HD 2000 IGP for a while, and think about whether or not I want to continue with 'serious' gaming.

EDIT Btw, whatever happens, I definitely won't be buying any more consoles. Last modern one I owned was a 360 that I sold on in 2011.

I've gone the other way, 31, & I moved to PC fully just under 2 years ago. Consoles weren't offering me anything worthwhile for the prices charged, wasn't even playing either of my consoles, moved to PC & haven't looked back, I feel rejuvunated with gaming again... Although I am a little worried I'll be one of those people with a 1000+ game backlog!

AAA games tend not to hold my interest for more than 10 minutes, although Rise of the Tomb Raider Ultra'd up is pretty great & keeps pulling me back. I tend to stick to strategy & rogue likes at the minute.

I will probably quit PC gaming once I get the Xbox1X. My i7/980ti PC is going to be outclassed so badly I wont be able to stand it.

I read on the Xbox board that the XboxX is slightly above a i7/GTX1070 PC. Which puts it just above my PC right?
