Games "So, to summarise this buyer's guide to next gen consoles: don't." Yahtzee, as usual, nails it. I particularly like the apt description of how you used to buy a console because it had the specific games you wanted, whereas now it feels like you're buying a console because it's holding the games you want hostage.

I agree. I have really been enjoying getting older games from GOG, DRM free, ready for Windows 7 x64 installation, and fully supportive of modding.

I am modding Torchlight and Bloodrayne 2 right now. It has been awhile since I played a good session of Doom, and with all the new game engines for it, why not, eh? Plus, I recently discovered Pinnacle Game Profiler which is allowing me to use my Xbox 360 controller for games that didn't normally support it like Blood, Diablo 1, Doom, KOTOR, etc.

Between these older PC games and tons of retro consoles, I literally have no need and little desire for the 8th generation game consoles about to descend upon us.
