In Response To: Re: Food for thought... (General Vagueness)

: I wasn't aware of issues with particular GPUs besides just not being powerful
: enough, do they not fix those quickly? Also, who said anything about
: playing the very newest games? There are tons of games that are not that
: old that you can play fine with even a mid-range PC today. What's wrong
: with turning down the settings? Most monitors, even older ones, have a
: higher resolution-- and a smaller size-- than most TVs, so if you're
: happy with the graphical quality consoles give you (and I assume you are
: since you're playing them), you shouldn't need to have PC games at their
: maximum or even turned way up.

I never said what my level of graphical satisfaction was or is.

It is true that each GPU, including licenced clones, need specific drivers and firmware upgrades to work with all types and ages of games. Being an old game does not make it immune to incompatibilities.

Playing old stuff may be a cool thing to say these days (lots of people say it) but it won't cut it in the long run. Eventually the new shiny stuff is all that will be of interest. I can't actually speak for you or guarantee you'll not be happy going retro. I know I wouldn't be happy. I'd probably give up gaming altogether.
