    Your worries are my dream.
    I MISS those days and I want them back. The new systems have slowly started to ruin PC games. Most PC games that come out now are released on consoles as well, which means everything gets dumbed down to console level, instead of taking advantage of what computers can do. ESPECIALLY when it comes to controls. Even MMORPG controls are starting to get super dumbed down to limited number of buttons so they can be more console friendly. Gameplay and content gets severely dumbed down as well, as there is a much larger market for children when it comes to consoles.

    Now I certainly like the improvements to console games, but it's been at the expense of PC gaming unfortunately.

    Elder Scroll games took a huge dive starting with Oblivion as they started to focus more on making them good console games, instead of good PC games. Can you do a lot in Oblivion and Skyrim? Yeah, and they are visually impressive, but pale in comparison to former titles like Morrowind, which was a PC game that got released on consoles, instead of a console game for PC's.

    I donno, I just miss the days when game companies took advantage of everything a PC and a full keyboard could do for a game. Now they just dumb everything down for a simple controller scheme and whatever the consoles can handle, then port em to PC to expand their market.

    Anyone else going game shopping on Black Friday? Hoping to get Madden for $25. Would be nice to find a good deal on a story mode game too

    Yup, I got $24. Had totally forgotten about it.

    Also, I went ahead and put my PS4 on ebay since ultimately I decided I still have too many games to play on PS3 and PC and the stuff I was really interested in got delayed 'til springtime. Sold my preorder for $585.

    Since there isn't going to be a college football title for the foreseeable future I won't be buying a next gen console. :(

    I was kind of surprised because the auction went almost the full duration with hardly even any views - then in the last few minutes two people kept outbidding each other and went from 500 to 585 before it ended. I was hoping for more but there just doesn't seem to be the hype with these consoles as with the previous few generations...I remember PS2s going for thousands on ebay at launch.

    Well, there is a lot greater supply this time around. With PS2, Xbox 360, Wii, and especially PS3, there were huge shortages. I remember waiting in line at Walmart for 6 hours to get my PS2. They had 30, I was 30th in line. For PS3 there were people waiting 2 days ahead of time, and the Target I went to got 4.

    +100 These 2 were the best no doubt. Ghost is OK. But the maps suck.

    I got Battlefield 4 on PC and it's really cool. Glad I passed it up on the consoles, not impressed by the PS3 version and I've read rumblings that the PS4/XBoner versions aren't that great either.

    FYI Best Buy is doing a sale on some recent games for PS3 and 360 for Thanksgiving and Black Friday that you can also order online - Assassins Creed 4, The Last of Us, Madden 25, and some others for $39. Gonna pick up AC4 if I remember to do it.

    FYI, take a look at the Walmart black Friday ad. They have the best prices for any game that day. I did a little comparison lol. Hopefully Amazon matches their prices.

    I'm going to start looking for people to add this weekend for the PS4. So if any of you fine gentlemen would like to leave your PSN here so I can add you for some BF4, Ghosts, or Madden 25 fun times then feel free to do so. :)
