I admit I am not a hard-core PC gamer, which is strange since I grew up on PC games. As I grew older, I found myself seeing video games as a separate thing from my PC, and I heavily preferred console or handheld gaming. However, Steam is changing all that. Or maybe online grad school is the cause, which I figure makes sense since I’m already on the PC because of school-work, so might as well just play games on there, right?
Going back to Steam, though, I find myself trying to find more and more PC games I’d like, which suffice to say is not many because the ones I want are either restrictive in my region or are games I am just incapable of playing (ie: Call of Duty). But I figure as long as I have a few games that are enjoyable, then that’s all it matters. Aside from Dragon Age: Origins, I am getting re-acquainted with Puzzle Quest (hey, it was on sale for $3-something!), a game I’d tried on a different console a few years ago. I’ve also tried a game called Dangerous High School Girls in Trouble!, which I find quite . . . bizarre. I also have Bejeweled Blitz, Myst: Masterpiece Edition, and You Don’t Know Jack, which is what made me start to use Steam regularly (yet I purchased that game from Amazon, go figure, haha!).
So far — aside from DAO — I think my PC gaming preference is more casual than my console/handheld side, which is probably what I need in between doing school-work — mindless entertainment. And since it’s a PC game, I don’t have to go to the other room to play on my console.
Do you guys have a preference with gaming? Do you prefer console, handheld, or PC?
