Computer Gaming

Gaming PC

Most gaming PCs light up like this for aesthetics.

Ever since I was a little boy, about 6 years old, my favourite hobby has been playing video games. I can remember owning a SEGA, an N64, and even a Super Nintendo. I've pretty much owned every console system up until the Wii. Since the Wii I have not bought any new systems except for the ever upgrading computer system. I started gaming on a computer when I was about 11 years old with a game called World of Warcraft. Since my introduction to the Warcraft universe I have not stopped playing. Once I was able to buy my own computer and get some decent hardware inside for a low end gaming computer, I have preferred to game solely on the PC. I still go back and play my Xbox because I have friends that still play, but that's only once in a while.

The main reason I prefer gaming on a PC is the option for a much larger variety of games, not limited to, but including my favourite genre, MMORPGs. MMORPG stands for Massive Multiplayer Online Role Playing Game. Basically meaning a role playing game that has more than just a single player aspect that allows you to play with friends and even strangers if you so please. Another reason for PC gaming is that you can get much better graphics and processing power than you can with a console. Though they may be better there is a downside to having better graphics and a faster processor, and that is the cost. If you want to game on a console, you're going to spend maybe $500 at most for the console itself. Whereas if you wanted to go buy a PC for $500, you'd be getting a pretty low end computer that probably will not have better graphics or faster processing. The best computer I've bought so far has cost me about $950, and that's not even close to how much you can spend on a computer. Some of the parts to a top end computer cost more than my computer all together.
