Can some of you pc gamers help me out with building my first pc? Topic: Micro case series
June 17, 2019 / By Baily
Question: So after long and hard thought I've come to the conclusion that a PC is better for gaming, as you have more freedom, more games,better graphics, and overall better performance. So I've decided I want a good gaming PC before black ops 3 comes out. But here's the thing, I don't know one single f***! about computers. So I need your help! My budget is $400 and I want it to run most if not all next gen games. Thank you for your time.

Well I can't really tell you which one is better since I'm not your fiance, but I can help make this decision easier. First and foremost, you have to find out what games he's "in" to. Take a quick peek in his game library to find out what kind of gamer he is (skip this if you already have an idea or know). If he has games like Halo, Left 4 Dead, Call Of Duty, etc. then he's more than likely only interested in first-person shooters (FPS) or similar games. But if you spot an occasional "adventure/platforming" game, like banjo-kazooie, then he's open to other games. You can also ask what type of gamer he is, discretely of course. You can say "Hey I was reading something on the internet that said someting about 'hardcore gamers'. What is that? What kind of gamer do you think you are?" or something like that...you get my drift don't you? (I suck at things like this @[email protected]). Or you could, discretely, ask him "Which do you prefer: Wii or PS3?". Next, Ask yourself these questions: "Is gaming a big part of OUR everyday lives?" "Do we play together, a lot?" "How much money should I spend on this gift" If you do play a lot with him, then you might want to get something for the both of you. But if it's his thing, then don't worry so much about it. Money-wise, Wii is cheaper...just throwing it out there...>_> On to the specs. ~Wii~ -Labeled as "for the Casual Gamer", this systems boasts a hefty amount of "Hardcore Games" as well. -Price tag: $199.99 -Awesome games include: Super Mario Galaxy (3D Platformer) Metroid Prime Trilogy (FPS/Action Adventure...3 for 1 deal by the way) Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess (Action/Adventure) Super Smash Bros.

Purchased with Nintendo Points/Wii Points (100 points = $1.00). Highest priced games are for the N64 (2000 points = $20.00). -It also has the WiiWare service (which has games made by other companies...most are fun...to DIE for O_O ). Purchased with Nintendo Points/Wii Points (100 points = $1.00) highest priced games are 2000 points as well...I think =_=...so $20.00. -Internet Works with both wired and wireless services (completely free of charge). The only thing you have to pay for is the actual internet access to your home and a wireless router/LAN adapeter for Wii (must be broadband/high speed internet or higher) -Comes with one remote (Wiimote ;3) & Nunchuck and Wii Sports. -Game library is very unique and is not shared with XBOX 360, fort he most part. -I'd buy this if I were you...you have no idea what your fiance is missing!!!

I have the Wii and wouldn't trade it for anything in the world ;3

The best gaming system for an Xbox 360 player is a PS3. 1. I'm assuming your husband is an adult. The Wii is based more around E (Everyone) and T (Teen) games. There isn't really much you can do with it if you're a big gamer. 2. The PS3 controller is similar to the Xbox 360 controller, making the transition easier. Also, the motion controller for the Wii is advanced, but a pain to deal with if you're playing action games. 3. The PS3 has more games in general. Also, a lot of the time there are games for the PS3 that the Xbox doesn't have (the Wii has completely unique games, but they're in general not that amazing.) 4. There is a $100 difference new, but you can usually snag a good deal on eBay.. The content really makes up for the price. http://www.amazon.com/PlayStation-3-120-GB/dp/B002I0J4VQ/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&s=videogames&qid=1256441770&sr=8-1 vs. http://www.amazon.com/Wii-Nintendo/dp/B0009VXBAQ/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&s=videogames&qid=1256441802&sr=1-1 Hope this helps.

You're not going to get the "better graphics than PS4/XBO" on a $400 budget. The video card itself would be that much.

Customization, good level system, and a free roam style(not a linear path where you must travel). I like it when leveling up takes longer. Other than the game play, half the fun is seeing your guy progress and level up on his journey. It doesn't have to be a vast world, but as big as you can definitely helps. Or if you can't make it as big, more quests. Speaking of which, a lot of side quests to go a long with the main storyline. Whether it be 5 minutes long or 30 minutes long, side quests will add a lot of game play and are relatively easy to design. As for customization, I love when their are plenty of options to choose from. One thing I love about RPGs is being able to make the character look like me, which gives me the feeling of actually role playing. I also love when there are lots of weapons and armor to choose from. Diversity is great in RPG games. Don't just let the gamer pick between melee, range, or magic. Let them decide if they want to mix it up and make, say, a battle mage. Let the player have complete control of leveling up. That brings me to my next point, the level system. The level system should go to 50 or 100 max(this depends on how long it takes to level up), and it should take a good deal of time to reach the max level in a particular skill. There should also be a great diversity of skills. Some of these combat, and several other misc skills to help you along your journey (such as alchemy). And another thing that I feel is missing from a lot of RPGs nowadays is boss fights. While still included in most, there should be more. A good RPG will have lots of antagonists, which include bosses, mini-bosses, etc. And as for the game play, I feel it shouldn't be either first person or 3rd, but rather give the player an option to choose between both. Well that's all I can think of right now, I will add more if I think of more. Just reply and tell me if you want me to think of more.
