I used to get migraines from video games. Switching to the PC helped a lot, and I think it was mainly a frame rate issue. But that was in the PS3 days when 30 fps was standard, and I'm not sure where...

Nice job! I didn't get a ton of play time over the holidays, but after a long losing streak with my main teammate, I went on win streak queuing with randoms. I'm a couple games from plat 2 in 2's. I...

I played the first TF for a bit. It was a ton of fun. A lot of that for me came from the movement style (wall climbing and boost jumping), and the random AI enemies that made you feel like you were...

My girlfriend is not really a gamer, but I was able to convince her that Rocket League was similar enough to Mario Kart to get her to try it a few times. And last night we decided to play Keep...

I've been lucky enough that I've only crashed once, but cut scenes will randomly have the video freeze while the audio keeps going. A friend played for two hours before it crashed and would launch....

Back when I had PS+, I played through my placement matches in 3's. I got the same rank as on PC, but I found it incredibly difficult. I think I got carried through some of the later games, and was...

I always imagine that the talkers are single obese men in their forties playing on a PC that can barely kick out 24 fps on low settings.

I used to not care about trash talking, but then one guy...

1) Easy to tackle. I had a PC hooked up to my TV for a long time that I had setup to launch steam on startup. I don't disagree that the OS takes a bit to setup, but worth the extra half hour it...

I haven't been playing a ton this season, but I've been struggling when I do. I got my two's placement around Plat 2, but I've been playing so poorly that by the time I finished my gold rewards, I...

If I recall correctly, they built a PC meant for the living room at a price point of around $600 when PS4 and Xbone were $350-$400. And when you put a PC in the living room, you either need to work...

I forgot about even writing that... If I remember right, there are something like 26 endings, of which I found five or six. At that point the difficulty ramped up, and there were still some...

It does, but I think you still need to be online to play, and the social area is mandatory to progress. You should do a quick Google before you get it, because I think a lot of the single player...

I find myself going back to Destiny 2 every couple of weeks. Each time, I feel like I'm falling behind more and more. But I can't quit it (although I have completely quit the crucible). I've only...

I think this is a really hard question to answer for someone else. Personally, I'd say no, but I don't live in a house where others' TV uses are prioritized. One thing I'd probably consider if I...

1. I like it. I think it's a generally liked system. But, if it wasn't for nintendo specific games, I wouldn't have bought it. The games you mentioned are a good reason to buy.

These aren't real loses for people buying it for the portability. This looks like a bad console if you're buying it for home use, but it's also cheaper than a normal console.

It's probably viewed more of a gameboy replacement. The 3DS retailed for $250 at launch. Since that was 8 years ago, and you get access to the larger console's full library, it doesn't surprise me...
