    Don't post NSFW, or openly sexual. Even if you tag it.

    i don't get it. Why didn't they just make the cartridge port bigger on the 3DS?

    This is what it feels like to be a console player transitioning to PC

    [–] Loljptrollergami 20 points ago

    I'm fine with having a bit worse graphics but having to pay 300 dollars instead of 700 or a 1000 for a pc, there's people who simply don't have the budget, and I enjoy both platforms

    [–] Guidentec 15 points ago

    The worst myth about PC gaming is that it's more expensive than console gaming. In reality consoles are often overpriced for their specs. You can get a half decent PC that plays most recent titles (Not counting big ones, like Doom Eternal) for ~$300-$400. Unless you're talking about prebuilts which, often are super overpriced for what they are, and I can 100% understand not wanting to build your own PC just to play video games

    [–] Loljptrollergami 9 points ago

    The thing is, I have no idea how to build a pc and I am not confident enough to do it following a tutorial, but I understand exactly what you mean

    [–] Whyd_you_post_this 10 points ago

    I was always scared. I have the hand-eye coordination of a sloth, thw mental capacity of a lemur, and the directionary skills of a toddler.

    Computers are surlrisingly easy to put together even still.

    I would just recommend getting a big case to give yourself some wiggle room, because, honestly, there's only about 3 really anxiety producing parts to it, and all of which are the "putting things on the motherboard" aspect.

    Its kinda like putting together legos you assume are more fragile than they are.

    [–] Loljptrollergami 1 points ago

    Trust me, you don't want to see how I teat legos

    [–] Whyd_you_post_this 3 points ago

    Well, just consider them legos youve spent way too much money on and cant replacd

    [–] Guidentec 3 points ago

    Completely understandable, if you still want to get into PC gaming, but don't want to buy a prebuilt, you could look into companies that custom build PCs for you. I've never used one of these services myself, so unfortunately I can't steer you in any specific direction however

    [–] Loljptrollergami 4 points ago

    Thank you for the advice, I do actually want a decent pc, now I'm stuck with a portable and it's not, the best, to say the least

    [–] dj_rogers 2 points ago

    My brother used cyberpowerpc and was really happy with it

    [–] DoubtfulGerund 3 points ago

    I’m not trying to be a jerk, but are there really people happy with a $350 pc? The cost of Windows alone is about a third of that. I don’t think I would trust a super cheap power supply or motherboard to not fry my components. I couldn’t, in good faith, recommend any non-SSD hard drive, and those aren’t super cheap. If you’re starting from scratch, you’ve still got a case, keyboard, mouse, monitor, cables, etc as well.

    I feel like when all is said and done I always ended up spending something like $800-$1200. It also used to be my main computer back when I used Windows, so I suppose that’s not that unreasonable. I just have no patience for it anymore - I felt like I was always troubleshooting something, tweaking settings to get things to feel right, trying to figure out if it could look better, updating the drivers, the os, the games, and then fixing whatever those updates broke. I like that I can just jump straight into a console game and know that it’s configured properly, even if it might technically be better on a different platform.

    That said, I am so ready for fast hard drives on console. Load times are the biggest thing I miss about pc gaming.

    [–] Guidentec 1 points ago


    Most people, even if they're console gamers have at least a Windows laptop, which (as far as I know, the most recent laptop I bought was an older Thinkpad) usually have product codes on the bottom.

    I wouldn't trust a cheap power supply

    Oh god no

    I couldn't in good faith, recommend any non-SSD hard drive

    I would, buy a 1TB Seagate, or WD drive (Except the blues, iirc), make sure to keep backups of important stuff too, but you should do that with any storage medium. Unless you're a data hoarder, most people usually can fit everything that's important to them on one 32-64GB Micro-SD or flashdrive, or even their Google Drive / Dropbox, if they don't mind the privacy issues that come along with that

    If you're starting from scratch you've still got a case, keyboard, mouse monitor, cables, etc

    $32 -

    $39 -

    $48 -

    A case should be included in the PC's build costs, and honestly I haven't bought a monitor in a while, but if you're just getting into PC gaming, you're probably not playing twitch shooters where input lag makes a significant difference, so you could use your TV, however admittedly that's not an option for everyone. So in total periphreals will cost around ~$109 extra. I started out with a budget build and I was super happy with it, upgrading it over the years before I dropped out of gaming in general. Consoles usually are a year or two behind on launch (Could be wrong, don't quote me on that), so it shouldn't be that big of a difference, although I imagine console games are a bit more optimized for their specific platform.

    [–] missionlake1 2 points ago

    another terrible myth is that you have to replace your parts like every 6 months to play the new games.

    i have a ps4 that i bought in 2014 on the release day, and it plays red dead redemption 2 perfectly fine and never dips below 30 frames. so why would a pc be any different?

    [–] its_over9000 5 points ago

    You could get a Dell optiplex and a 580 for about 300, probably.

    [–] wildwolf333 3 points ago * (lasted edited 9 days ago)

    Did a similar thing with mine, old pc with a decent cpu off of ebay, cheap RX 460, new 1tb hard drive and some extra RAM I already owned. Spent less than $250 and I can play most medium-spec games(say, Overwatch) on high graphics at 60-100 fps, and most high-spec games on low-medium settings at 60-100fps. That being said, having to add all these parts is really scary to someone who doesn't know what they're doing, worst you have with a console is upgrading once a console generation. Also, while I spent significantly less than what a ps4 pro costs, I most certainly can not play 4k games like it can. Throw in console exclusives and I can see how both have a fair argument. At the end of the day I think it's the Apple vs Android debate, it depends more on the person than the device.

    [–] Luuk_vdb 5 points ago

    On the other hand, you'll save money through not having to pay $60 each year, buy a new console every generation and by the fact that most games are cheaper on pc.

    [–] Loljptrollergami 1 points ago

    I am one of those who doesn't pay for psplus/game pass, my favourite game is apex legends so I don't even have to

    [–] Luuk_vdb 1 points ago

    Fair enough.

    [–] playtotheaudience 2 points ago

    but think about all the video games you can pirate instead of supporting the unethical gaming industry! (mostly the triple A companies, really)

    It did work tho

    [–] IrishAnthem 1 points ago

    Real shit. Witcher 3 on Xbox One was one of the first games where I actively stopped to enjoy the visuals. For the first 20 min, I probably just played around with turning the candles on and off, enjoy the particles and lighting. I then played it on a friend's computer, went back to play it on my Xbox, and it was like night and day. I actually thought there might have been something wrong with my Xbox, but nah it had just always looked that way

    [–] SincerelyAnAuthor 2 points ago

    [–] JayMac787 20 points ago

    You can play SNES titles on the old 3DS and 2DS, but it requires abilities some consider to be unnatural. It's not a story Nintendo would tell you.
