    Really? I think for FPS games it's insanely better. So much more precise. Granted I enjoy console shooters too, but given the choice I'll usually play it on the PC. Plus strategy games on the console are pretty much impossible to play.

    There are some games where a controller is better though. Like racing games or fighting games. Sports games too.

          I play CS: Source a good bit. I have Global Agenda and TF2 as well. Steam is "Jesot".

          Every once in awhile I'll get suckered into WoW, but it's not really my cup of tea as far as MMO's go.

          I haven't gotten my beta invite for FFXIV yet, but I've heard it's clunky as sin. Might try it on the console, but will probably pass. The Old Republic is the only other MMO that looks like it might be worth a go.
          Its an open beta at this point anyone can apply. I will say its clunky but it has alot of promise. Then again its a beta so im sure a lot of the kinks will be ironed out.

              I'm a pretty avid PC gamer. Here's my Steam library:




              Also have Starcraft II, Mass Effect, Dead Space, and Football Manager 2010 as recent non-steam games.

                    I'm playing tf2 competitively currently after finally retiring from CS after 6 years of playing it competitively. I love TF2. So much faster, less waiting, more action, looks better, etc.

                      The only problem with these games on a PC is they aren't on it. Never understood the console fascination. If you prefer a controller/steering wheel just buy one for the PC. The problem is you can't get the games anymore which is a pity.

                      As for PC Gaming, pretty much all my gaming time these days goes to CivNet(Prefer it to the newer Civs) and Football Manager 2010. I really wish that SIGames had been more committed to their attack on the American market, they got Hockey and it was looking promising but just never took off.

                      I don't even like soccer and Football Manager is the game I've played more than anything, it is the closest any sports game has come to perfection by a long way. I would go as far as to say that if Football Manager is a 10 on Sports games the next closest thing I've ever played would struggle to get a 6.

                      Haven't got the time for SC2 so haven't bought it as I'm very competitive and I'd play it until I was winning most of my games and that's just not healthy when you have to work and the likes.

                      Hopefully Civ 5 will be good, the only game I'm really excited that is upcoming other than FM 2011.


                      Props to BK on the sig!

                        There are some racing games, but I'll agree that there are very few fighting games. Most of the sports games have come out on the PC, but they don't do nearly as well as they do on console.

                        I also can't wait for Battlefield 3. I played Battlefield Bad Company 2 a ton on the PC before my computer started acting up. Great game. I really can't wait until BF3.

                        A few games I'm excited about:

                        Civ 5, Crysis 2, Duke Nukem Forever (yes it's coming out for real!), Dragon Age 2, Fallout New Vegas, Portal 2, Homefront, Star Wars: The Old Republic.

                        There are so many awesome games coming out next year..

                          Pretty sure Champions Online is going down because they couldn't get people to switch over from CoH. Same developer. Same mistake Turbine made when they tried to force AC2 down players' throats.

                            The problem is that there are a few wildly popular racing games, but if you don't like them, you're screwed. I haven't tried it, but the dev team that worked on the original Papyrus NASCAR games has the most popular online racing game going now. It's a true sim.

                            East Coast Hockey Manager is pretty awesome. Pretty sure the mod community for it is still pretty strong for roster updates and such.

                              I'm definitely a PC gamer.

                              I played WoW for years (since early beta) but I can't stand it or Blizzard anymore. Nothing is new. It's the same old crap rehashed every expansion, so I guess it isn't a surprise that I won't be playing Cata.

                              I played Aion, got level 50 as a Cleric and quit. I recently sold my account because I couldn't envision myself ever going back.

                              Also, for those interested in FF14, you get 8-10 hours a WEEK to exp and after that you start gaining 0% exp. None. I definitely won't be touching that. Plus, the beta sucked.

                              Now, SW:TOR is my ****. (www.swtor.com) I'm super excited about it. I've been following it since Bioware announced it and could not be more pumped for it. I'm building a brand new top of the line machine for it as well. Bioware will make an AMAZING game.

                              I do play TF2 sometimes (not often lately) and CS:S sometimes but haven't played in a while. I'm more of an MMO player. If there is an MMO out there I've at least tried it. The only non-MMO I'm pumped about atm is Diablo III. Friend and I started a fansite for it (www.d3db.com) and we've been invited to Blizzcon the past three years. It's looking like it's shaping up to be an amazing game.

                                Your defiantly right about wow, they need to shake up the formula. And while Cataclysm has them revamping the original areas and lore that I loved when I first started playing which is cool, its still pretty hard for me to get to excited about it. I myself did like wotlk better then tbc.

                                If I may ask, what was it about Aion that you didnt care for? My biggest gripe is that after the starting areas, all the high details graphics and interesting quest lines seem to peter out at around level 15 or so. But I gotta say, I love the pvpve(as long as the server is stable lol).
