Really happy lately with some of the games that have come out on steam, Dayz, NFS, Metal Gear Rising (AWESOME), Broken Age, need I go on? I have also just ordered Guitar Hero 3 for a bit of fun has been delivered today so excited to get my bum home and play this, I had it before on Nintendo Wii and loved it but apparently you can add your own songs to it using some kind of control panel, me things imagine dragon radioactive....
One thing I am upset about though is the lack of Grand Theft Auto 5 and Rockstar still haven't announced it I'd love to play it but refuse to play it on a console after watching my little brother play it on his PS3. I like graphical and beautiful games and on a PS3 it's not great not even full 1080p so I am waiting and hoping!!
I'm intrigued (if that's how you spell it) to find out what you guys think as there is a slight lack in AAA titles for the PC, do you think computer gaming is dieing.
I'm hoping the steambox will attract a new bigger market and thus will make developers create more AAA titles on computer platform!

Console gaming is dying, there's no way in hell there's a PS5 or Xbox Two, unless the consumers really are stupid. The trouble is, gaming like so much else isn't actually driven by what's possible but *only* what makes <insert X corporation here> money.
(for consumers read *as a whole* not individuals)
The lack of AAA titles is annoying the best game I played last year was a close tie between Bioshock Infinite and The Last of Us and I had to violate my blu ray player/media centre with a game to play TLOU.
Its more annoying when a AAA title comes out and its just a XB port that under performs due to some pusedo-emulation. (Although I do love it when a game takes 0 config to use my USB 360 controller)
The only console I actually use and am excited for releases on is the Wii U. Its not the most powerful thing in the world but it has interesting ideas! and the games are made to be fun not the next step in graphics.
In the past 12 months we've had, BioShock Infinite, Arkham Origins, Tomb Raider, Diablo III, Assassin's Creed IV to name but a few.
The difference with PC is thanks to platforms like Steam, AAA studios don't have such a monopoly on virtual shelf space so the indies get just a good a chance at sales. Also, for every AAA game released about a dozen indie titles follow!
I still think the SteamBox will be a flop but hopefully it's a step in the right direction for a more open gaming platform. I think the console's days are numbered.
I am currently in love with Assetto Corsa. The Graphics are stunning

At the moment it is Gran Tourismo. FYI: You need a really good graphics card and a steering wheel (think Logitech G27 like mine) to enjoy it most.
My card is a GTX 660 and is the recommended card. It is ok but struggles when it gets very busy.

Wrong context @X-13 - was referring to the fact consoles should not need to exist in the current climate. No need at all, other than for the relevant companies to make money. Not even related to software, entirely hardware.
