    Yeah. Mine ceased to be a plaything with the advent of DA: Inquisition, which now sits on my nightstand as I wait…months…for a PC that will run it.

      On the bright side, by the time you get one that will play DA:I, it will already be obsolete for the latest games at that point, so that will mean another upgrade…..

      And they call us console guys peasants 🙂

        Hey, this is the reason why I became a console guy.
        When I bought Morrowind, my computer met all the published specs. But the game didn’t like my graphics card. I owned the game for 2 years before I actually got to play it.
        Then the same fricking thing happened with Oblivion.
        Nor were those the only games I had trouble with.
        I love consoles. I can buy a game, and know with absolute certainty that it will actually work.

        • RangerSG says:

          I loved Morrowind. Oblivion, not nearly as much. It committed the cardinal single-player game sin of trying to design a system to defeat powergamers. As usual, the only people harmed by the ‘everything levels with the player’ mechanic was the person NOT trying to wring every last advantage from the rules.

          I’ve had this laptop for 4 years now. I should’ve known it was time for a new gaming computer.
