I'm not sure how many of you out there are noticing what's going on in the games industry. A shift is starting to be made. (Nissan hehe) PC games are going to take the lead pretty soon I believe. With the multiple core processors and the hardware available you can build a high end rig for only 1500$. Sure it's enough to buy a car but that's not the point. The point is PC's have the biggest advantage out of any platform. Eventually I felt either on a Wii or 360 boxed in. I'm limited to what I can do online by the manufacturer and developers.
Which is why both those systems are now gone out of my life. The 360 I returned to Circuit City via 30 day happiness guarantee and the Wii I sold on Ebay back in Christmas when it was a hot item. It still is though and i'm glad. Nintendo deserves their success. Anyway i'm straying off topic back to the PC pivotal moment thing.
This year is going to be ground breaking in terms of PC games. First we got Hellgate: London. Which with their latest video finally shows that it's nearing release quality. Flagship studios just needs to make sure it's optimized, which i'm sure they will. These are the creators of Diablo. (Which I am playing by the way, quite a game) It's kind of sad but at the same time very interesting that a game like Diablo is more fun to play than a game like Shadowrun.( For me anyway)
Then we got Assasin's Creed being developed by Ubi's best. I'm going to have to get into the prince of persia franchise sooner or later. The SNES games were pretty good but difficult. I can't wait to play this in a few months down the road.
Lastly we got Bioshock. Which a whole seperate team is working on the PC interface. Plus the effects in that game are just sick. I can't wait to see what the review sites say about it. I have high hopes for it.
In conclusion these are 3 major games, but there are still many strong classics in the PC. I truly believe PC can return to the glory days. For me it's still the best platform for playing games due to it's versatility and power. The PC is like Bruce Lee.
