I think I’m a gaming Fudd. I’m a die hard PC Gamer and I’m really only interested in First Person Shooters (especially if they are in the Horror genre) and Simulators. I really don’t care about any other game types, even if I’ve dabbled in RTS and RPG’s.
Because of the FPS Fixation, I scoff at Consoles. Reason being is Mouse Aiming. Controller Aiming flat blows. And WASD combined with Mouse Aiming allows for very smooth and fluid movement. Controllers, not so much.
Unfortunately PC gaming is pretty much on life support. It’s going to be dead soon.
I remember not having a problem with a new game requiring a hardware upgrade to run. I used to think, if you had to upgrade, you should anyway. Well, computers all pretty much fast enough and have enough RAMs and Gigs and graphics… I’m not seeing the need to upgrade just because a 60 dollar game requires it. I’d rather just not play the game.
And why the hell are these games still so expensive. 60 bucks for a game? PLEASE. Production Costs? Really, I can watch a movie on Blue Ray that cost over 200 million to make, and the disk cost me 20 bucks. The excuse is that less people play games so the cost is higher. Well, I tell you what, 99% of the gamers I know all wait till those prices come way down anyway. You make that next Call of Duty 8 or whatever it is, brand new blockbuster game… and price that at 20 bucks – You will end up making more because all the gamers that wait will just go ahead and buy it. You guys are up in the freaking night.
Yeah, I’m just kind of turned off on the whole gaming industry. Because let me tell you. All the new high tech games with the Online Gaming experience and all that crap… The Games are No More Fun than back in the day when we were playing RAINBOW SIX: ROGUE SPEAR in a LAN PARTY. That was awesome and gaming has gone down hill.
