I just want the quality of PC games to be that giant step up that it used to be. I want to be able to justify the cost more than anything.
Sorry but Skyrim, and Diablo 3 are worth having a gaming PC this year. Have fun on your mac thou.

Right, everyone I know running even a high end mac has frame rate issues. But if you consider that flawless then rock on.

Never been a fan of either game genres but am waiting for them to become dirt cheap over the next few years. So I really don't consider them "worth having a gaming PC" for. Most new games are pretty stale IMO. I'm still waiting for the new Hitman and Bioshock, so my 360 will work great for that when they release.

Until then I'll keep gaming on my MacBook and X360.
I don't think it is THAT expensive to keep a PC up to date. The most cost effective way imo is you have to spend some dough once for good basics, and then just keep upgrading the video card as necessary.

While I agree with the last sentence, it all just depends on your situation financially. In my case, I have a new son that is all of my time, attention and $$$ right now lol. Not that I'm complaining about it, but I don't get much extra $$$ to upgrade video cards anymore. I'm still rocking out my Q6600, 8GB RAM and GTX 260 And it also depends on time/location. I get zero time to sit at my desktop PC anymore, therefore I game on my MBP (Boot Camp or OS X) if not my XBOX.

I'm really waiting for the game devs to start focusing on the PC a little more; putting a little more time into their work and making the PC version worth maintaining the PC for. It just never settled right with me that I spent so much $$$$ on my PC when all I got was the console version with . . . well, I just got that.

Sorry to derail this thread with my crap.

If I had to game on a 360. Sadly, I would no longer be a gamer. I can't stand my 360, LOD on driving games is so poor I can't see anything on the road in front of me until its too late. 24/7 vasoline eyes. with all the blur, the jaggies... God just thinking about it makes me shiver.

I'm thinking with my 2600k, 16gb ram and GTX 680 I'm good for awhile though.

360 looks pretty good on my big screen. Plus for us broke gamers who don't have the big bucks to spend on that kind of hardware you mentioned, it gets the gaming fix taken care of.

When the PC market steps up and some time passes by, then I'll get back into it.

Who said anything about bringing them down to a lower level? I understand that with hardware, it just won't be possible, but one can dream right? Leave mah dreams alone!
