It is a random drawing, and we love different perspectives on the same game, so go for it!

Agreed. And seeing that there are so many PC exclusive games, you are shunning a wide audience. Here are some that will never show up or atleast for quite some time.

Elder Scrolls Online
Mechwarrior Online
Command and Conquer (Reboot)
Company of Heroes 2
Marvel Heroes
Mechwarrior Tactics
SimCity
Starcraft II: Heart of the Swarm
Total War: Rome II
Wasteland 2
World of Warplanes
Sins of a Solar Empire
Scrolls

and on and on

I don't buy a technical issue. I build sites for a living as a web developer. Rather more that the folks at Avsforum have bought the hype that PC gaming is dead. I am pretty sure that games like the ones listed above or those in the past like WoW, Crysis 1, Minecraft (until it was finally ported) and so on prove it otherwise.

Every game has its place. MarioKart rocks on nintendos (upcoming release), sports games own on consoles, and so on.

I think the knee jerk reaction is that PC are always ahead of consoles in terms of image quality, but this is only the case if the pc is a strong build. Where the real advantage in pc gaming lies is in the storage capacity and access to online content. A game like Sins of a Solar empire really couldn't be played on a console because of its memory requirements. Crysis 2 showed how much had to be scaled back to accommodate the scope of terrain in the original on the PC. Games like minecraft are still much better on the PC received updates beforehand and allow heavy modification. PC game modification is another area that makes PCs stand out.

There is a reason IGN has reviews on PC games. The genre is alive and actually prospering with the advent of so many online titles. Heck, I spent way to much time last month playing this World of Tanks that my 16 year old son told me everyone in high school is playing on their PCs.

I think you underestimate how much excluding PC games hurts your reputation. Gamers are passionate people, and I like many others on here take this as a slight. Maybe you should just close down the HTPC section as well.

Forum Request:

It is kind of hard to have a comprehensive game review without at least discussing narrative (by those games that use it.) Some games have extremely _bad_ narrative. How are we supposed to convey that gameplay without giving too much information to players that haven't played them yet? In the future could we have a 'spoiler' ... '/spoiler' tag when discussing game reviews so we don't give away key plot information unless the player hovers over it and sees the 'hidden' text.

Edit: The badly designed icon that looks like a "Speech Bubble" is actually this !

My first review - Forza Motorsport 4. http://www.avsforum.com/products/forza-4-xbox-360-game-microsoft/reviews/4440

I kept having issues when trying to add images. It would hang up and I'd have to open a new page. Either way, Its pretty good as it is.

If you're going to spoil the entire game in your review, you should at least warn people first.

Very well written though, even though I disagree with almost every word. smile.gif

One can use the:

SPOILER=Warning: Spoiler!

...text...

/SPOILER

tags surrounded with square brackets.

Alternatively, select your text, and you can click the icon that looks like a square speech bubble ...
Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)
