Boy did I get it last night. At a party with some friends, I revealed the nature of my new PC and was met with revulsion and disrespect. While this was deserved, I felt the need to defend myself by stating quite clearly that I am done with PC gaming. From here on out, it’s either PC classics or console titles. I hold the singular claim of being the cheapest gamer out there (I’ve had the PS2 for several years now and have never once paid full price for a game) and PC gaming just ain’t cheap. Buying a game-worthy rig and keeping up with upgrades hits the wallet too hard.
I’ve paid my dues, and am moving on to easier and cheaper things.
