Default The Last of Us

The last of us. Sigh, at least we have the Witcher. Where is the epic story telling for the PC?

I saw this trailer and it makes me want to buy a PS console. (I won't, but I want to).

Epic storytelling died years ago on the PC. Multiplayer crap has killed it.

For storylines I go to my PS3.

What are you going to do. With recent numbers coming out yesterday that indicate PC sales have dropped another 14% it only makes sense. The ball is in Nvidia/AMD/Intel's park so it's really up to them to start investing back into the PC market. Don't kid yourself, console games are also loosing some margins as well but still highly profitable. The amount of money to be had on pads and the like are huge. Supercell makes over $500 000 a day on a few iphone games including Clash of Clans.

Hey, I'm not a console, or a ipad player....
I don't live in an igloo or eat blubber, or own a dogsled....
and I don't know Jimmy, Sally or Suzy from online PC chats,
although I'm certain they're really really nice.

etc etc etc

My name is Joe!!
And I am PC GAMER!!!

They need to combine this story with the latest CryTek engine and release it for PC. THAT is a game I would gladly pay $60 for.

The only reason I bought a PS3 was to play the Uncharted games. Can't wait for this one, Naughty Dog is the shiz.

It's not the platform, it's the developers. Naughty Dog did a great job with Uncharted, and this looks like it's shaping up well too.

There's some great story on the PC as well though. Mass Effect, Dragon Age, Witcher... even SWTOR had some excellent story telling and flow. Unfortunately EA keeps buying up the great story developers (Bioware) and turning them to crap.
