    God I just love the constant time-consuming, expensive process of upgrading/configuration/hardware incompatabilities/being alone and friendless in a box room that is the GLORIOUS domain of PC gaming.

    Who on earth would want to simply pop a disc in a tray and play? Not me, that’s not nearly elitist enough for my liking.

    i need to upgrade my processor but that means i need another motherboard aswel

    And probably the RAM as well.

    While you’re there you might as well go all the way and get a new hard drive and graphics card…

    Of course, you’ll need to get a new PSU to power all of these high powered new things without your PC crashing every 20 minutes…

    Then you may finally have a rig good enough to play this game.

    And when you’re bored of Operation Flashpoint…?

    Well… There’s always The Sims!

    Woot! Optimization for quad cores is really starting to hit now. In your face all you ney sayers who said “Don’t get quad cores”.

    Gadzooks, you sound like your typical no-nothing pc ignorant console gamer. hardware replacement is something you have to worry about maybe once every 2 years. And with all the money we save buying our games 10-20 quid cheaper than console gamers uupgrading isn’t as expensive as you seem to think as long as you approach it intelligently and realistucally – i.e. not the manner you appear to be.

    In my experience the issue of hardware incompatibilities is entirely non-existant. But yo, who cares if a problem is only experienced by the extreme minority, down with pc gaming!

    “Gadzooks, you sound like your typical no-nothing pc ignorant console gamer.”

    I’ll take that as a compliment.

    I don’t get why enjoying PC gaming is elitism, horses for courses.

    #13 5 years ago

    It isn’t.

    But belittling other gamers as ‘kids with toys’ is!

    I dunno, computers in their lego-like complexity are just that damned 1337.

    PC’s are cool.

    Building PC’s is cool.

    Technology and powerful processors are cool.

    PC gaming is could be better.
