I like console games on the 360 and Wii, but PC gaming is also great.
Some games are so much better on console than PC (madden2008). I prefer console gaming since I'm used to the controls but I'm starting to take a stab at PC gaming.

yeah thats what i am doing looking down on pc gaming but when the microsoft xbox 360 pad came over to pc i was thinking why not give it a go with that

been on consoles since final fantasy 7 came out so thats like 11 maby 12 years

and that sounds like a plan with the 32" and pc combo if you look into the tv's and pc's properly you can get 720p, 1080i on on 99% of your games, maby look at a HD-DVD and blu ray drive and bam a all in 1 system

So your playing PC w/ xbox control pads? Wouldn't you get whooped on all day considering they can aim pretty **** fast w/ a mouse? I was always playing xbox and rainbow six 3 black arrow. The best game ever made. My friends always told me how much better PC gaming is but I'm still new to the controls. I'm so used to the analog sticks plus I think it takes more skill to use * go go gadget flame suit*
