Well today I was inspired to make this topic after looking in a few game stores. I was disapointed with the lack of PC games on sale along with a new release (Grand Prix Manager) that I was after not being in several stores and some not even selling games on PC.
I went on to buy Dawn of War II and after a quick play, I found myself disapointed. The game is not bad, nor poorly optimized on PC. However, I felt disapointed as I was going in expecting Dawn of War 1 type gameplay on skirmish mode, however there is little in base building. I can see the argument for that however, but this is one of the features I felt made these games key to PC in their complexaties, this game could run on consoles now due to some asset stripping in gameplay areas (not to say that its bad, as it does make the game more tactical, you cant just spam out the same units and win, nor can you rush as your units will get shreded by the base deffences).
Consoles seem to be making a big leap forward technology wise to be on par with PC gaming in most graphics areas in the last year or two it could be argued. Some games like Empire Total War I admit would not run on a console due to sheer data the game crunches.
Anyway, what are your thoughts on this?
Do you feel PC gaming still has a future or is consoles taking over for the "hardcore" gaming experience?
