Like 10-20 pounds more for new games. So for me, upgrading my pc once in a while is so much more rewarding. I like to play strategy, fps and rpg's. And playing that kind of games on a console is just pure crap. A gamepad cannot replace the efficiency of my mouse :wink:

Only with the newer consoles can the graphics begin to compare to the pc at its best. And i want my games to look friggin great :twisted:

But hey! That's just me :D


You might want to consider that the point in consoles is for console gamers. So, yes consoles are interesting to console gamers. ergo consoles have a point, you just fail to see it :P

Now I'm all with you on the "I don't like consoles at all bandwagon" but I'm not with on the "PC is betetr due to grpahics" bandwagon.
PC is better because it has the games I want to play and the consoles dont.

As for the Wii it gaught my eye because they aim for a different audience than the "I want top-line Graphics" crowd. I am not very fond of that crowd as they've been responsible for a bucketload of very poor games the last 3 years. So please don't go around saying you _need_ great graphics. do me a favour and start shouting you want entertaining games. ;)

Graphics aren't a nessecity for me. smooth gameplay and a high -I need to play now!- factor are much more important.

Time till wii-release is shortening! I better go find a pair of tennis shoes 8)

My humble opinion is that both the pc and the console have their drawbacks and their plusses. PC has great games, and I can't imagine playing an MMO on a console, but I do like the controllers for action games, like fps and the like.

To me, the Wii is an interesting new concept. What could this new kind of controller have to offer?

I WANT ENTERTAINING GAMES!!!

I definately do want entertaining games. But i want them to look great as well. And i totally agree with you that there are too many games that only look good and have terrible gameplay. I play several games with ugly or outdated graphics simply because i love them. Outcast to name a special one. A 1999 french developed action/adventure. The graphics are in voxel space (i think its called. They thought that was the future in graphics. :shock: ) and the controls are not too great either but it has a great story and i love the gameplay.

If a game sucks, it can have the coolest graphics in the world, im still throwing it away. Graphics are not the main reason why i dont like consoles. A combination of several issues = pc > consoles (in my book anyway)

Offcourse there's a point to consoles and yes :p i fail to see it simply because i am the way i am hehe

Everyone to their own likings :wink:

Best bit about console games for me is that they generally come "finished" and dont need several large patches to get them to a playable state. One of my pet gripes is with PC games that are released to meet schedules rather than to meet standards. But the price of games for certain consoles bugs me. Cross paltform releases should imo have the same cover price, especially with a console like the Xbox where there is not all that much more work required on the port.

@Katarn: and I bet if I knew you better I'd love you for who you are ;)

I play mostly Strategy, simulation and mmorpg. those games just don't pop to mind when you think console.
Also love sandbox games and FPS now and then. I'm hoping we'll see soem of that doen well on the Wii. that might just be the first console since the Dreamcast that I even tolerate.

@proto: I also like the idea of finished games. it's one of the reasons I've been considering and trying consoles for a while now. but I hate the joypads. so I am hoping this wii-mote thing will change that for me. Prices are pretty important too, I agree. especially if you're not a general gamesfreak like me. I'm bloody picky. can't afford to buy the wrong game and keep buyign till I find the right one :D

now we just need SWGalaxies 2 on Wii.. with a lightsaber :P *dreams*

Got an Xbox (old un!) in the livingroom, It is used as a DVD player and to play a few games:

Worms (worming)
Burnout 3 (racing)
Sims 2 (2-player)
San Andreas (Not played in a long time, I prefer my pc for this.)

on my pc I play

Oblivion (well, for the first week... a sample of gfx doesn't = gameplay.)
Travian (rar super gfx requirements eh?)
World Of Warcraft

And use my pc for documentation and surfing the web.

I did have a couple of 360s back when they were first released, KAMEO was an interesting game, but lack of interesting games, and lack of a HDTV had me flog them all on ebay (including the one I wanted for myself) - I actually prefer the old Xbox, it does everything I want, and all the newer games I play on my PC.

New craze though. Just got a gaming laptop, and have some old classics I want to emulate. Maybe I should get a gamepad controller, and just enjoy :D.
