i am not driving over the bridge to even get on your lawn

did you play Portal 2? while it is a sequel, it's a pretty unique game and a lot of fun

what about the new Batman game?? you loved the first one so i don't see a reason that you wouldn't like the new one

we all have become picky about games over the years but that doesn't mean you can't find something you like, even if it's a retread

I'm just bored with it. And it's either my fault, or it's their fault. Or probably both. Thing is, I used to not have a choice. Games were so fun I couldn't wait to play them. Now I feel like I have to make myself.

So while I'm sure my interests have shifted regardless of game quality, I think the right games would pull me back in, leaving me no choice but to play them. You know those games, where you start to play and the next thing you know 4 hours went by but it only felt like 15 minutes. That hasn't happened in forever.

Batman is still in the wrapper. Can't work up the strength to cut the cellophane off it.

That would kill me. My ISP is pretty mediocre.

That's it and paying $1000 or more just for graphics is a humongous rip-off.

I walked away from pc gaming sometime ago. The thing is yeah you may think the video cards are substandard or what not but the developers max these cards out at some point in the life of the console. Pc gaming developers could not keep up with the video card tech by the time they finally come close a whole new design comes out. In the mean time they kill you with slight differences they have the nvidia 8 series then then they get the new and improved 8 series which should have been done the first time. They make tons off in the field testing. when pc games became mostly ports of console games I just laughed and threw my pc by the wayside. I just got tired of spending three days to get a 6 hour game to run right. Consoles insert disk and play.

having been an avid pc gaming fan, i definitely prefer console gaming now with convenience being the big factor. though games like skyrim, a pc is a must. i'd like to see kb/mouse support for consoles at some point and hopefully ms partnership with razer will make that happen since i doubt they will ever let non-supported third party peripherals.

Yeah but you can't assign functions to whichever button you want on a console.

Incorrect.

Being able to assign would make great games even greater.
