You dont need an HDTV for a 360 or ps3 but to compare PC gaming to non HD console gaming is really no comparison.

Amen, I hate this argument so much in so many ways, all in all, we should instantly know what we are all about to say anyways, if not, we are just in the paradoxical troll hell known as this argument.

I hate it so much because from what I'm hearing PC gaming is dying a little; and thus we should offer (as aforementioned in previous posts) solutions and advancements to problems.

I can admit to the fact that I used to pirate games and upload releases which doesn't really aid my standing (or my emotions about the topic), and the fact I spent most my gaming time alone due to everyone else having consoles. (Although I did spend alot of my time offline with no internet)

I also hate FPS on consoles with a passion, but unfortunately, I have a PS3 and I'm an avid fan of alot of Console only releases, so whatever...

The only thread worse than this is "PS3 vs XBOX360" (Which I hope I never see) and you can only talk about that topic about marketing terms.

Closing statements:
Computer Aryan race...
The purpose of this thread is to argue and discuss our opinions on what we prefer for gaming PC or Console. how hard is it to figure that out.....

As far as the DX10 being a flop, maybe as far as sales goes, but eye candy wise thats so far from the truth...

And my point is you are posting this on a forum dedicated to Windows 7 which the last time I checked runs only on pc's. The poll will be inaccurate and therefore is useless. Best to discuss this nonsense on a forum dedicated to a developer that makes games for both pc's and console if you want a true representation and fair arguement.

There is a point on this thread, this is the gaming section or have you not noticed that, oh and did you notice the general discussion topic.

Why is it some ppl post non Windows 7 related subjects in general discussions and other categories. Just because this is a windows 7 forum does not mean we are not allowed to compare windows 7 gaming to consoles.

Get your facts right in future.

WDA, I agree with you on the poll being one sided as this is a windows 7 forum and if the post was on a Xbox forum or PS3 forum the poll would lean the other way. It is ncie to see though that people aren't just PC though, 20% voted for console.

I do think though that this thread has a point. you can read all the posts and get an idea of why people choose consoles or PCs and the pros and cons of each. If you got only one side and everyone said PC because this is a PC based forum, then the thread would be pointless.

One might argue that you would need a 30"+ computer monitor to compete with a gaming console connected to a 42"+ HDTV screen.

I don't believe that the results of the poll are skewed just because this is a Windows 7 forum. It's all to one's own tastes. There have been members who posted replies in this very thread who state that they prefer consoles--so how is it skewed in favor of PC gaming or Windows 7? However, those who do game primarily on PC do defend their PC as the better "gaming system"--regardless of the operating system.

I agree with you in part, but disagree in other areas. Just because someone is accessing this site from their PC, that doesn't immediately identify them as a PC only gamer. This site is about an operating system, not a game or gaming system.

Maybe the discussion and polling results would be better if the forum where the discussion was taking place had nothing to do with computers or gaming whatsoever?

'Some reason this guy looks like a Pc gamer.

But anyways, I love how my crappy post is now in like over 5 quotes now, but theres an aforementioned point, I think alot of people like the PC (And FPS on the PC) Due to the Keyboard and mouse ? Personally thats probably a big factor typically for that kind of game genre.
