Default Back to pc :D

I am a pc gamer for 13 years. And Almost year ago I bought a 360 and It was quite fun so I stopped playing on pc. month ago my 360 died(becouse of my fault) and I noticed that the way I really enjoy gaming is on pc. I always hated consoles but gave them a try but after all its not "that". I admit, its fun and simple in use but I like pc freedom and just the feeling more. (Still GTA4 on 360 is great!)
Anyway. I started using my rig for gaming again and after almost a year with 360 I noticed how great it feels with mouse+kb and how much graphics are better with good aa and af.
I must say Its true that you miss things after time.

So I passed Cryostasis and Mirrors edge recently. And I am thinking what to go for next?
Becouse of screenshots section I think about Vampire the Masquarade Bloodlines. Remember I tried it when it came out and it was awful.

Anyway... Any propositions?

Vampire the Masquarade Bloodlines is one of the best games in history it was released in rather buggy state, but after all the community patches it is in very good state now.

go for it

So what is it like to work through a year long temporary lobotomy? My kids use the 360, I consider it a toy. Graphics are nothing next to my PC and controlling shooters with a 360 controller is too hard imo.

I do this all the time.

For me it's not so much that consoles are easier... they are, but I like figuring things out on PC, and honestly don't think PCs are that hard... for me it's more being in the zeitgeist I like, the "now" as it were. If you're a console gamer the whole industry is geared to you, as a PC gamer you're sort of on your own.

So I keep having these moments where I'm like "I'm going console" and I start buying my games exclusively for them. Then in a few months or so I say "what the hell am I doing I'm a PC gamer!" and I come back to PCs. It's a vicous circle, usually started by a game that really sucks on console but I know would be amazing on PC with the settings cranked and mouse control... last time it was Left 4 Dead, which was HORRID on Xbox, I seriously don't know how anyone can play that game on that console.

Anyway... err... yeah. Welcome back.
