People pay for PC games for the online experience. You're not going to get a pirated version of a game and expect it work online. Since Bioshock is single player, then yeah, you can just pirate it. Xbox Live is the only thing that came remotely close to giving people a good online experience. I still say PC online support is still way better than console online. You're just blowing off steam with the whole PC gaming is going to die crap. I have to say, Bioshock's software could have been polished a little bit more. I think they rushed it. But for good PC games, I have no problems installing them and running them. I like having the customizations on the PC. mucking Mario Kart won't even let me change the buttons. People like the PC because you can customize it. As for the big screen TV deal, HDTVs now all come with standard HDMI ports so that makes hooking up your PC to a TV a breath.
Oh, and I will never play an RTS on a console.
You didn't understand what I meant by "Pirates Online for free." I mean people are playing an MMO, Pirates of the Caribbean, in their web browser, for free. So why are they gonna pay money for Bioshock just to have it not work? Stuff like Rune Scape and Gametap are the future of PC gaming.
And hooking up a PC to an HDTV isn't as easy as plugging in an HDMI cable. Take for instance my computer. You really think I'm going to lug that beast all the way down the steps, unplugging all the shit thats behind it, and then rehooking all that shit back up just to play some shitty game that doesn't work? Get real man. No one is doing that, unless they have a dedicated machine hooked up to their TV for that purpose.
As for Mario Kart, I use the remote/chuck and all the buttons are exactly where I want them to be. Just stop using your wavebird, something you're even lucky works with the game in the first place, and switch over to what the game was built for.
