I’m a fan of gaming, not of a specific gaming platform! Furthermore, I’m a sort of gaming fans that require the graphics to be as best as graphics can be. This means, I expect of nothing less than the next stellar gaming graphics, and I want the next latest games to have better graphics than the last games. Sure, the plots, gameplay, character empathy, in-game rewarding system, and other major features that many good games should have are all very important, but without good graphics and great arts such games would be mediocre to me. Of course, you can argue that should the gameplay matter most? How about a game plot should shine most? Of course, there will be some addictive elements that will stand out most for a good game, but my preference for a good game is usually graphics first… there will be some exceptions though but those occasions are rare and so it’s safe to say I want great gaming graphics, always.
It’s no surprise that for the reason of great gaming graphics alone that I only see myself playing more of PC games (fyi… even with PS4 and Xbox One, games on these consoles won’t be able to match the great gaming graphics experience with games on PCs that have mid-range to high end graphic cards). I have had PS3 and Xbox 360 for years, but I’ve rarely touched them. Safely to say, I had not touched my PS3 and Xbox 360 for months. Instead of playing games on consoles, I found myself login to Steam, Uplay, and Origin on a daily basis. Furthermore, Steam has been the gaming platform where I giddily scour for great games on sale, on an alarming, addictive, frequent basis. Such a behavior has contributed to my spending money on PC games that I may not have time to play at all since finishing a single game is already a time consuming act. Nonetheless, I’ve to say that I don’t think I will be able to own so many games if I buy games for consoles since the games for consoles don’t easily go on sale. Also, games for consoles don’t go on sale as frequent as Steam!
Although I’m not exactly a hardcore gamer, but I do play games a lot, therefore I thought the arrivals of the next generation gaming consoles such as PS4 and Xbox One would surely have me running for becoming the first fews to get ’em kind of things. I usually loved it when I got it right, but this time I felt bad as I saw myself walked into Best Buy and asked if they got PS4 or Xbox One available (even though I’m a PC gamer). To my relief and anguish at the same time as I swallowed the words “sold out” as the Best Buy representative proudly let out. I found a relief in this as I knew I only drooled over PS4 and Xbox One for their novelty, but whenever I got over the novelty of ’em all I probably would not hesitate to allow the consoles to be untouched, unloved and covered in dusts — wasting little money I have had away. The anguish feeling I found in all of this confirmed that I was too just loving to be materialistic for new toys. Nonetheless, I have to say thanks to the sold out problem that the new consoles are experiencing, I probably will stay away from ’em next generation consoles for a long long time, because after-all I’m a PC gamer. Without being able to get my hands on the next generation gaming consoles at a whim of my desires, I found my sanity again! Perhaps?
Desires and temptations are the fruits of all evils, but I’m only a mortal! Let’s get the game on!!!
