I consider myself a heavy PC user as well. After I bought my first gaming PC, I never really looked back, it maybe be a
bit more expensive as a console, but it has so much more uses with software and internet and let's say directly, as a
digital artist, I would need one anyways.
It can be easily repaired, it can be upgraded unless is not some really oldie, plus games are much cheaper as well. Of
course it requires certain knowledge and is not like a console what is enough to plug into the electricity and play.
Personally I couldn't even play Skyrim without mods, which is also possible only on PC.
A few weeks ago I have seen a review (interested me since I own the same GPU as they had in the article) that the
mid-range Geforce GTX 750 Ti already beats all next gen consoles with a 25-30% difference. And thats quite
Don't worry Pande, even if you missed some good games, you can easily play those now trough a emulator.
Regarding my Atari, I think it was advertised as home computer, even if it lacked the typical features. Anything being
able to run games was a pretty new thing that time, so the difference wasn't so obvious as later in 90s-2000s
That Atari had some really weird games. For example I think this one would be now banned in some countries, as long a
certain group of ppl would find it offending, especially in the states. :P
