Author: Jessica Kosinski November 19, 2008 The Console Versus PC Gaming Battle In the world of gaming, some of us like to think that PC gamers rule the roost. Others, however, are die hard console gamers. Some walk the line and play both. So, o they have the staying power? Is one type destined to become obsolete? First of all, in the world of console gaming, there are three main categories, these days, Xbox 360, Playstation 3 or Wii gamers. Granted, some play two types and some play all three. Personally, I am a Nintendo fiend, though. In some ways, that competition actually works in the console gamers’ favor. Since there are three main console games, there are three very distinctive console game sets to choose from. Yet, those sets are ever changing. For example, I loved Banjo Kazooie and Banjo Tooie on N64. Imagine my dismay when I discovered that the latest Banjo game is only out on Xbox 360! Suddenly, they aren’t Nintendo specific games anymore! So, now, if I want to play my favorite games, I have to buy a 360. Theoretically, once I do that, I will see other 360 games that I like and buy those. I’m probably not alone. That trend will probably cause a lot of you gamers out there to buy more than one system and, as a result, games for more than one system. So, any old school console gamers are probably going to stay console gamers and, by default, their kids will probably be console gamers, since the games will be in the house. I don’t see console games ever dying. So, are computer games destined to go by the wayside, instead? Well, I think not, just for sheer convenience. Most of us use our computers on a daily basis. If we have breaks from work or just happen to be online chatting with friends, why not play a game, especially a multiplayer online game? In fact, more and more MMORPG’s are popping up. World of Warcraft, Warhammer and the like are in no danger of dying off. Aside from that sort of convenience, there’s also the space convenience. If you play computer games, you don’t have to contend with console game systems, lots of game controllers and accessories and tons of game discs and cases everywhere. A lot of computer games don’t even require a disc to run. Then there’s convenience point three. If you’re already at your computer playing a game you have the world at your fingertips, as far as finding game information goes. You can easily look up game cheats, game walkthroughs, game trailers and more. Of course, if you are playing a console game, you can take time out and go over to your computer and look up the cheat codes, but it takes more time. Ultimately, there are no winners or losers in the battle between console and PC. I am looking forward to Diablo III coming out for PC, personally, but I’m also looking forward to the day that I can replace the Wii that my ex boyfriend kept, too! There’s no reason we should choose one over the other. All games are a blast!

While this statement doesn’t apply to everything in life it does apply to gaming, if you are a decent player who has a fair amount of intuition when it comes to solving the intricate puzzles that most games are made of then you know that even if you are a good player you will still have trouble unlocking each and every single section of a game, this holds true in each case when the game you are playing has been designed with several levels in many areas which need to be unlocked in order to advance to yet another level, hidden area or to acquire a special ability.
Unlocking every section of the game is actually nearly impossible, and a new games you are very likely to not even come close to unlocking 50% of the game hidden areas, if you have played games such as: House of the Dead 2, in the version of Grand Theft Auto, Halo, Pokémon, SimCity, The Legend of Zelda, etc. then you know that the amount of levels and hidden places is just incredible.
In Pokémon alone there is an enormous number of worlds that each player needs to clear in order to meet the final bosses, and many versions of this game the Pokémon which you have captured can be evolved when you migrate them from one version to another, this is actually something that not every player knows about but it would definitely be a very useful piece of information to know, thinking on this very same issue great online communities of players have come together to share their tips, tutorials and even cheats of each game they play.
Another good example of much needed information comes into play in the game of World of Warcraft, if you have played this game did you know that there is a gold rush, where each and every single player is trying to acquire this virtual gold in order to get items that will allow them to enhance the characters as they play in advance from level to level. Because everyone wants gold, savvy players have started to farm gold in order to sell it online in many players do in fact pay the price for this virtual gold, which is not cheap.
Those who play this game have developed several guides which include the best tips for making gold, some of these tutorials are actually sold but if you are able to find a community of gamers who are willing to share this information for free then you will obviously hit a jackpot. Acquiring these game cheats doesn’t necessarily mean that you are in fact cheating because many times you may just be stuck on a certain part of the game which you can’t beat, this is very normal and happens to most players which is why game cheats come in very handy.
