    Microsoft releases 100% of games that are developed for the XBox One on the PC. There are more games for the PC than for Xbox One and PS4 combined. Because both PS4 and Xbox One are nothing but PC's with a custom OS, cross development is extremely simple.

    Get a Steam account, everything you could ever want is there.

    Not true. Microsoft games are only available on the windows 10 store. And most of the stuff available on steam is shovelware garbage.
    And yes I'm a pc gamer too. Got a gtx 1080 & a rift.

    Origin, UPlay. BattleNet, these all have exclusive games. But Steam is by far the largest.

    And Xbox games are not on any of those platforms. Just like they used to only be available via GFWL now they're only available via Win10 store.
    I just don't wanna see someone upgrade a pc or buy a new one thinking Xbox games can be bought outside of the Windows store cause they can't. Most pc gamers hate the windows store but Microsoft is "trying" to build an ecosystem to rival the others. It will fail just like GFWL did

    GFWL was malware. I haven't bought anything from the Windows store, so I have no idea if it is intrusive. MOST of the Triple A games on XBox are from third party developers, which means most of them are on Steam. Only the MS Studio games are restricted to Xbox Live (Windows Store.)

    When I read the topic name, I had to take a step back. Why wouldn't adults play video games? I'm 50-years-old and I can lose at more Wii games than anyone that I know. However, Call of Duty: Ghosts - Gun Game is my guilty pleasure. Yes, I'm the guy with the knife. Platform? It doesn't matter, I've got them all.

    I'm in the process of putting together a new rig and was going to get the 1080 and Oculus. Is 16 ram enough and have you ever played any of the flight sims?

    Sixteen should be fine as long as your graphics card is a 2 gig minimum and your processor is at least a 4 core. I put a 4GB card in mine with 32 gigs of RAM and an AMD 8 core and a gaming level mobo, nothing is slow on that machine.

    Thank you for the info.

    I know just enough to get me in trouble. Power supply in my box went down and I have this Dell FXR to use while I shop around. Has been a damn good machine, older I7, 2.8g, 8gig and a 240 SSD. Never been a gamer but when I started shopping around I found out I could dogfight others online. Never been a data/video junkie and all the packages you can get have a bunch of junk I don't want so I want to put the money in the best machine. I only have 80 gig used on this SSD. Don't even think I need a HHD. So I was thinking latest I7, 16gig, 1080 card with 4gig, 500SSD and increase connection rate to 100.

    Does it matter? If someone lets it rule their life, yes they have a problem. But the overwhelming majority of gamers do it for fun, entertainment and relaxation. Why does that bother you?

    As for your comparison.....

    "
    - riding bikes
    - playing pretend war
    - making and flying paper airplanes
    - playing with toy cars and RC cars
    - playing hide and seek
    - throwing around a football
    -playing dodgeball"

    I'm 56 and my wife and I ride bikes often.
    How many adults play paintball games? Same as playing pretend war.
    Paper airplanes? When they grow up they can afford better toy planes.
    RC cars and RC planes are a hobby for plenty of people.
    I've been known to throw a football. People do things for fun and relaxation.


    This idea that a "man" has to be serious all the time is simply ridiculous. Lighten up. Who cares what someone does for a hobby or entertainment, as long as no one is hurt.

    You keep thinking you are too manly for such children's games. I'm sure someone will be impressed. As for me, I'm not worried about someone elses toys.
