PC's are a waste of money. They used to offer screaming performance and awesome games but the last two years I have seen them develop into money leeches. Feel free to disagree...
Couldn't agree more, The pc games releases has slowed down so much over the past year or two I've been saying this for a while.
I've been a gamer since i was a nipper and always argued that the PC was the defining platform, Whats an FPS without a keyboard and mouse, when was the last platform sonic type game you seen on the PC, strategy games were in a league of their own and obviously they was always cheaper than the consoles on the release date £30 or so.
I used to easily manage to buy a game a week for the PC and those were games i looked forward to getting not just anything off the shelf. I rerember medal of honour, call of duty and wolfenstien all getting released at the same time I rerember it as I booked a week off work lol
Just add a few flashy bits to the quake 3 engine and release some games I say.
