Of course the PC will never lose all of its "mojo", but do you guys think that it could perhaps get taken over as a primary gaming console in the future? With systems like xbox 360 and PS3 that perform much of what the computer offers to gaming at a much cheaper price, its hard to think that computer gaming has such a big future.
I think one of the main things that deter gamers from pc games is the constant NEED to upgrade your system in order to play the latest and greatest games on decent settings with decent framerates. Take Crysis for example, the game is amazing, but definitely caters to the computer gamers that are able to afford a computer that can run it. Of course its playable on the lower settings, but you don't nearly get the full experience from the game if you can't enjoy it in all its graphical glory.
I considered myself to be a PC gamer. I refused to buy a console for the console-exclusive games that I wanted to play and any other game I would just play the pc port of the game. Well... last week I caved in and bought an xbox 360. I must say, it is a much better gaming platform than the PC.. but that is my opinion of course. Also, its nice not having to worry about upgrading hardware and such. I hadn't really played any console shooters since Goldeneye so COD4 took awhile to get used to.. but with a bit of practice, it was just as natural as using a mouse and keyboard.
Anyways, what do you guys think? perhaps the PC offers benefits that will never be able to be overshadowed by the console giants.. only the future will tell.
