I don't really understand that comment?

Why would you drop any games? 500 games you're still going to have as many redundant games as someone with them in a physical format. I still buy old gen games from time to time when I come across them in a second hand store. Personally I've never enjoyed PC gaming in the lounge, pc gaming for me is about having a comfy ass chair at a desk with a mouse and keyboard.

Anyho...

Why would you drop any games? 500 games you're still going to have as many redundant games as someone with them in a physical format.
Why would a good game ever be redundant?
In a more literal sense a Steamworks server for an older game will still be running (theoretically - I can't say I'm completely trusting...) years after PS3 through PS10 games have been phased out of existence and are being re-sold collectively in the PS11 online store for a 'nominal fee' lolol
I own hundreds of boxed console games as well, but have only ever played them via emulator on xbmc or via USB controller for years anyway. Though plugging in the Fountain is good for a laugh, and I have a soft spot for the actual Megadrive for some weird reason.
Personally I've never enjoyed PC gaming in the lounge

Same game (hopefully running better), same TV, same controller, sitting in the same place, but you wouldn't enjoy it? Not entirely sure what you think PC gaming is?
But anyway, this is all being run from my desktop so I can still sit at my desk if I want, up to me.

Looks like it might be hard. Old school strategy games are usually too hardcore for me...

Yep, I'm the Union.

Nah, it's really not that hard but you can change difficulty settings to make it really challenging. It's very cartoony and has a real arcade feel. There's about 3 type of mini-games apart from the general moving armies around, etc: battles, infiltration of forts and jacking trains. Wicked game. Highly recommended if you have an Amiga emulator (they're really fuckin easy to install).

Oh yeah, and it has a 2-player mode too:

I guess its just ergonomics and aesthetics for me. I've never enjoyed having or using mouse/kb getting on a table in front of the couch... Controller nbb for sure.

Steam, while great, I find you end up with so many games that never get played. Even on console I don't like getting the digital version of a game, they're like ebooks. I prefer to have something physical, I'm still dark on games that get released without a physical manual.

Each to there own.

SteamOS is 100% controller operated (can use mouse and keyboard if you want but that's not what I'm doing), and I'm playing on the same TV, and from the same couch I would be with a console. You could not possibly notice the difference if you couldn't see the 'console' and were using your PS controller.

Boxed stuff is great but for current games in NZ you're just getting ripped off. Would rather spend my money on older stuff. Or records or something that isn't going to drop a few hundred percent in value in the first year. But after buying current games in Steam sales for a while I can't even imagine dropping a hundred bucks on a game anymore, which is a big shift.

its no big deal to drop $100 on a game, i got GTAV on the first day it came out i was like the second customer(some crazy nerd pushed past me lol) for $88 sold it within a week for $50, could have got more but it was a mate, my ps3 is modded so no need for the physical disc.

you are also rather wrong about games going redundant, UrT is a fucking desert these days, if you wanna play bot matches theres plenty, but if youre after a real game youre shit outta luck.
real sad. :(
same goes for quake, no more customTF :? :(

Yeah you guys fucked well proper with game pricing. Picked up a copy of Jonah Lomu for my Vita last time I was in NZ and even though it was like 2 years old it still cost like $60 (hard to get that game basically anywhere outside of Australasia).

Yeah I guess that's the difference, I really only play games on PC these days that aren't done justice on a console, RTS/Strat etc

Sweet, internet again!

I've been playing Resident Evil 4!! Totally forgot how good that game is. So intense, and pretty damn huge too. Great action game, one of the first 3rd person shooters I think (?), and one that did it right. And, Item Tetris!!

Did you ever give Binding of Isaac a shot Snuff? Maybe half my friends who've tried it have bounced off, the other half are pretty addicted

Yeah played it for a bit, I can see the attraction in it but it didn't really hook me.

Didn't help I just got the TWD: Season 2 for the Vita couple days later.

Fuck, dragon age is the most time consuming game I've played in a while, apparently it's about 60-70 hours to complete.
