Well, my pc can run the newest games on slightly above medium (high on some games) but i dont consider it "new" , so its second for me..
About the same for me, although my PC can run new games close to highest, so I said "PC New". Although it isn't exactly new, being about 2 years old. Still, I think it's closer to new than old, heh.
Until my recent harddrive corruption, same here. Any prayers that data can be saved from it is welcome.
Harddrive corruption...Ouch...Hopefully you don't end up losing too much :/
Connect your corrupt HD to another PC. It should be viewable as F: or some other letter depending on how many peripherals are on the other PC. Drag and drop what you want to recover to the C: drive of other PC. If your corrupt HD is IDE or SATA, download and run a low level format tool on it, (Google "low level format tool", there are some free ones). I've revived 3 "dead" hard drives this way. Now just stick your fixed HD into your original PC again, reinstall your OS, and transfer your recovered files from the hard drive you copied them to.
Finished a run through Battlefield 3 campaign on High.
5 year old mid range PC.
my pc sux so I still play CS and Halflife FTW hahaa
Me too dude :(
My PC can run alot of new games in high, but its a bit old so yeah. BF3 handles nice for using a 5770 1st gen too :p
Same here but with a laptop :P
My PC is 7 years old and still not dead,maybe it can go up to 8 and if you peoples can't make that live than oh well....old pc FTW!
my family first pc 98 dad got it from work in 99 and it was used regulary 5 years ago,it still works but cause its pretty original i havent played on it 6 years
I hate consoles
All hail PC master race !!!!
Just one question to PC master race. I agree that you are superior to us console players, but why do you hate us? Consoles are keeping the little kids and high ping players(like me) from joining your servers. Are you not glad that consoles are keeping them away? Please give me a logical answer.
Such an answer may come from the fact that Devs nowadays from big companies decide to only allow the "Ultra" setting in their games for consoles. Either that or having a NASA computer. That is one of the reasons, although I don't share such an opinion.
He hates consoles, not console players.
Consoles are keeping people retarded, not away from some servers.
FPS games are impossible to play.....:/
That's why I play only on PC/laptop
i fell its easier to game on consoles... cause you have the variable movement speeds instead of pressing a button and only being able to go the one speed... thats one of the three reason why i play on console
1. variable movement
2. dont have to worry about specs (though my desktop is topline and can play most games a 100%)
3. if i play through console i dont have to worry about my internet capping since it isnt counted towards the quota
The Main reason PC players hate consoles is alot of games are shifting over and leaving us out of the picture... WTF do you thing they code there games on PC's so why cant they keep up in the loop!!!
The_Federation, thanks for giving me a reason that actually makes sense.
How does age have anything to do with ping?
Go ask a child what ping is.
Because the console kiddies will never shut up about how their console is the hottest **** since sliced bread, even though they're all pretty much the same.
That and a lot of people who regularly play on the PC like to spend $60 to get the latest big budget AAA games lament how most of those titles have degenerated into cowadooty rehashes and are all console ports.
Me, I'm happy with my timeless games, from Morrowind to the Hat Fortress, and everything in between.
Console kiddies never shut up? On my time around the internet, I have only seen two examples.
However, I constantly see the whole "SIEG HEIL THE PC MASTER RACE" ****.
console kiddies in the internet? lol u noob :D
haha are you referring when you say hat- fortress, TF2? lolz but yea every one except me really wants just hats, hats don't help any unless it's a pack with other stuff.
It's not like we hate all console players (only fanboys) and the hardware is not a problem as well it's stupid devs that make games for consoles then ported to PC not the other way around.
because the controllers restrict having more games like strategy or the sims (bad example, the sims suck) from being produced and be successful.
edit because im slightly dyslexic!
dont care about consoles/consolers, but HATE EA (and others), for making games on PC cuted for consoles - low graphic, bad control, **** gameplay as 4 PC.
most console players believe that consoles are more powerful than computers.
I am a console player mainly because I failed to buy a proper PC in the first place so now I play console games more than my late PC. I for one know that PC is superior in terms of hardware and only idiots will believe otherwise. FPS games are better played on PCs than consoles and I agree with that because I bought Battlefield 3 for my 'invisible' PC so currently I am trying to get enough money to buy a decent one to play with ^^
Im buying PC for the sole reason of playing battlefield 3 for the ultimate experience lol
i have both a PC and an xbox console. why not, the more game tech the better right :)
Heck ,I wish my PC was as powerful as my console. That's why I bought it, because I can't afford an expensive PC.
old PC's FTW! ;)
My old PC is still kickin' the 2006-8 games like a GOD!...
yea!! 2007 acer right here!
old laptop FTW :P
My laptop was made in 2002 with almost no video cards and I played tons of games on it with years of frustrating bad specs, bad FPS, and worst of all crashes. But it's still working today O.o barely though, she needs to move on instead of living having to struggle just to turn on. I'll miss her!
I Game more on my main rig, but if I get hooked on all those indie games and smaller games (which are easy to run on a old machine) I play either on a laptop and my older single core PC. Of course when i'm on the go I take my iPod for my gaming needs :D.
I mostly play games on console but latly been playing alot more games on my gaming pc from steam deals etc. I been playing alot of tower defence games on pc like Dungeon Defenders latly :D.
I bought my laptop in 2009, it was running almost every game on highest settings back then. Now, if I can play on medium settings, I consider myself lucky.
I can't buy a desktop because I live in a dorm. I need to carry my computer everywhere.
I live in a dorm and I have a desktop. I don't see how that changes anything
My desk is smaller than my ***.
The only way I'd ever play video games on a console is if I could swap out those god-awfully limited and sluggish controllers for a keyboard and mouse. Oh, and if they had hardware that wasn't outdated. And if their games were wide open to modding. And if you could easily create 3rd party programs on their restrictive operating systems.
PC all the way.
Lets look how your arguments work against UT3 für PS3:
-Change controllers for mouse and keyboard - No problem
-Newest hardware blablabla - The game is so old you can play it on highest settings so no new Hardware in need plus you can change the hdd for a bigger one
-Game wide open to modding - yup you can mod for the ps3 ut3
-the whole blablabla systembla - possible (well if you are actually so fluent with programming you should have no problem to get that running that you want)
So taking your arguments into account i come to the conclusion that you do have a ps3 / you would buy a ps3 / you would play ut3 on ps3
SO... He'd play maybe one or two moddable games for the ps3 that don't have state of the art graphics even though one his reasons for playing pc is that they do have state of the art graphics?
Let me quote yourself "Hummm". ;)
i have HL1 for the PS2 and it can use a mouse and keyboard which i do, because yea the stick it sucks balls for FPS, NEVER can i aim with the stick!
