Hello there!

You may know that console gaming never has and will never cover some of the amazing aspects covered by PC gaming.

That's why I'm proposing a department dedicated to get members on "Steam", a free software which is like Skype, you can chat, voice or typing with a bunch of people; you can shop for PC games at a low price, it's like a hub for PC users.

Of course, people who thought buying an Apple computer was a good idea can download the Apple version.

PC Games can be sold for a beautifully low price, the new "Dawnguard" was reduced to £11.50 at release, that'll cost £40 on console; why not PC game?

 

There's a wide variety of PC games that we would like this community to connect; from Steam games to non-Steam games.

 

New to PC gaming? Want to try it?

PC gaming offers a mature community; people who PC game use teamwork that's extremely rare to find in console games; PC games have loads of fun games that never get tedious, unlike some console games.

There's Arma II, if you want an actual realistic war game that requires teamwork to win; it's a lot more fun than a standard console game where you all run out in a disorganised fashion, fighting free for all in team games.

Here's a clip of a bunch of PC gamers playing Arma II.

There's still plenty of joking around, lots of fun instead of constant cursing you'll find on console games.

** Warning, contains infrequent innapropiate language **

 

Of course, if you're not interested in PC gaming in itself, you can still use Steam to communicate via PC.

This is just a petition for you to vote on wherever you think it's something that members should be able to enjoy; there's plenty to enjoy, no saying you have to use Steam at all.

It would not be a bad idea to have a steam section of the forum, however I think that most people here are xbox gamers like myself with a love for the xbox exclusive title, Halo series. Seeing as a lot of the members on here have regular minecraft playdates I'd recommend seeking a moderator about organizing a Steam playdate and then observing what the turnout is.

I am sure there are plenty of steam users, its just a question of how many. As much as I'd like to play PC games I just dont have the computer to handle most of them. Im sure ZERO's idea would work.

This would be a great addition to the forum in my opinion.

Not only does it add more subjects for people to talk about, it also adds stuff for people who may not have Xbox Live but have a decent computer and a connection to the internet, they can still find something to participate in, whether it's a playdate on a game like Arma II, or a tournament on say... Team Fortress 2.

We already have a small Steam Group started I think... And if this does well, people who notice the Steam Group may come and join the forums.

well i made a steam group for these forums a while back, they didn't get used as much as i hoped, but you guys are free to join it, maybe with more people we could get playdates going on it
