Background: Twenty year console gamer that recently purchased a gaming PC.
For transparency sake, this computer had an Intel i7 6700 processor and a GeForce GTX 1070 graphics card. I didn’t know what to expect since I’ve been use to a closed gaming atmosphere for the better part of two decades. After a week of gaming, I can confidently say I’m happy and disappointed at the same time.
The flexibility and customization of a PC was my favorite part of the transition, but also my least favorite part. It is great to be able to adjust your settings and optimize for the best gaming experience, but it’s also the worst part. Adjusting the settings constantly takes the fun out of the experience (for me). For a large portion of us, we are use to just putting in the disk and the game working. This has not been the case with a majority of the games I’ve played on PC thus far, but at the end of the day, playing Grand Theft Auto V at 60 frames per second is definitely worth the time.
I think I will be sticking with console gaming for now, at least until playing games on the PC becomes less tedious and more fun.
