    The truth is that serious PC gaming is way more expensive than consoles and there’s nothing wrong with it. You get better quality that you have to pay for, just like with things like clothes or cars. The question always is: what do I really need and what can I spend.

    There is the bonus feature of 99.999% backwards compatibility (we have lost the ability to convert some old rare few file formats to something readable by modern machines…) be it through emulation or whatnot.

    can you think of even a single gaming format for PC that isn’t currently playable? I’m still playing some dos 1.0 games just fine.

    I tried loading the original Thief the other day. It was a bucket of nope. Granted, with some finagling, I probably could have gotten it to work. Installed from Steam too lol!

    You need to get the game to only use one processor core. Use this patch: www.ttlg.com/forums/showthread.php?t=134733

    There are multiple data formats from early computing (pretty much anything from the 50’s and 60’s) that are completely unreadable by today’s machines…several archival groups worldwide are trying to fix this.

    yes, formats are not games though. where those formats used for games?

    and it’s nonsense that they’re “completely unreadable”, they read just fine.

    read…translate into something that can be used…same thing. But yeah, there’s old pong clones and text based adventures that are currently hidden behind a language & technology barrier.

    Another one I can think of that is only true if you have a working antivirus. Any game by Monkeybrainz Software (game company from the 80’s that has practically no trace on the internet nowadays). They might actually contain viral code…each game was a really cheap knockoff of another popular game…they were kind of the KING (guys that made Candy Crush) of that time…no big loss…but still.

    This pic does not take into account the free games you get with your network subscription, nor the time spent putting the PC together (without an anti-static wrist strap, prepare to buy at least one thing more than once). And considering some of the pricing, I’m betting these ain’t American Dollars.

    it doesn’t need to take into account anything that’s $0, this is an expense comparison, not a benefits comparison.
