It's was so obvious, I can't believe I didn't figure it out sooner. I thought I needed to keep up with gaming by buying a next gen console. Join the team. Get a PS3 or a 360 and fit in with the console crowd. It seemed like a good idea, afterall, I've played games on consoles all my life, ever since I got a Super Nintendo. Now I've come to the conclusion that even though console gaming is stronger than ever, my attraction to a console isn't. I get this *blah* feeling everytime I turn mine on. PC gaming has always been popular but it wasn't really my cup of tea.
Okay, that's a lie, I just didn't give it a chance. After being invited several times to internet gamer cafes by friends, having the chance to play games like Left 4 Dead and Bioshock, I have to say that I really enjoy PC gaming! There are no bounderies to it. I thought I needed a PS3 to play Devil May Cry 4 or Resident Evil 5. All I needed was a PC! So I got my hands on one and started playing everything I've ever dreamed of playing. That of course includes The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblvion. I had been playing Morrowind for four long years just waiting for the day when I would get a taste of what Oblivion was (I am currently working on a review, I just got sidetracked by Shivering Isles). It didn't stop there. I wanted more and the titles just keep coming.
Steam made one of my wishes come true when they announced that they were giving Portal away for free (I now have a review up for that). Now I'm convinced that even if there was a PS3 waiting for me around the corner, I'd have to think it over a few times before letting go of my new PC (originally, I was going to put my money down for a PS3 only if it got one more exclusive that would have me aweing. The first was MGS4 and the second was FFXIII. Unfortunately the second one is now on the 360. No biggie though. I'm too busy having fun right now to care.)
