Lol I never said it made sense or should be that way, I'm just stating that PC has an edge with RTSs and the average PC user, according to Steam, has a crappy GPU.

Actually I think the real issue here is HDMI, DVI, and DP - the bandwidth is too high for many of these connectors, and GPUs have to be designed to be compatible with them. I think the average GPU...

PC gets it's attention from RTSs, simulators, and the modding community. PC is also appealing at times like now when we're transitioning between console generations; the game (in most cases) will...

No, it's not a baseless opinion. They're making games that appeal to the masses, strictly to turn a profit. They're in the industry for the money, not for the art. Setting bugs aside (which in...

Actually I'd have to agree with jrs77. I'd say 2 out of 10 games these days are actually worth playing, with 1 out of 10 being an indie game. EA and Activision are killing the gaming industry, and...

750MB/s is theoretical maximum speed, but probably a speed that can never be achieved, realistically. Also, 550MB/s for read speeds on current SSDs is under the most optimal conditions possible. ...

I wouldn't say WoW ruined warcraft - Blizzard just spent way too much time on it and never bothered to make another warcraft RTS. If WoW lost popularity a long time ago, I'm sure we'd have seen a...
