    I think they are playing those 500 or so games themselves even now, as they haven't declared the Giveaway Winner yet, even though the its been over one & half months since the entry ended for it.

    console games are always trash until they come to pc with a strong port.
    For example Gta V was 2008 looking garbage and It became completely different timeless masterpiece game on PC.
    Red dead was horseshiet now It became a great game minus the online

    That display of games were very poor examples to promote PC gaming. That PC is capable of so much more but those old rinky dink games you were playing on it made it look as outdated as the games themselves.

    Probably could have done it in the order of games on the 2TB m.2 card and throw like a 1TB or even 500GB m.2 for a regular boot drive on the back.

    PC's are superior. But they can't support duel player/screen. They aren't mobile. If you want a descent system you have to spend $1500+. You most likely have to be in a corner facing the wall not socializing with anyone all by your nerd self.
    That small computer you built recently was over $2300. I was super excited about it until I priced it out.
    I'm getting myself and my two kids a nintendo switch with software each for less then a single PC that only 1 person can use and enjoy.

    Well folks, it seems you can't get a free copy of witcher unless you already have GWENT in your game library. Guess what? That means you have to BUY GWENT to get witcher!

    If I’m building a machine for emulation, is it still true that my preferred option is a Nvidia gpu due to developer support? What about the CPU? Does branding matter for that? Do ryzen cpu and nvidia gpus play well together?
