Gaming PC  -  An Adult\'s Toy?

The progression of Gaming PCs

Its now almost 2014 and in the past few years we have seen new tech come and go. What is new today will inevitably be gone tomorrow.

But with this evolution in gaming PCs come the fast improving realism of modern games. The PCs get so beefy, filled to the brim with the latest or greatest, but we never stop and look at the repercussions. These days gaming PCs can handle an immense amount of stress thanks to liquid cooling and graphics cards.

This alleviation of stress on the machine helps for a smoother visual, which in turn makes the game more and more realistic. A lot of gaming companies see this as the perfect opportunity to add me blood, guts and gore to their games.

One of the best solutions PC companies came up with was budget gaming. Being able to buy a budget desktop, that can still do quite the awesome job. Now I don't know about you but if I can get an awesome gaming rig and save a little money one the side I would definitely take it.

Pros to budget gaming:

  • Cheap
  • Flexible
  • Wide market (If your a retailer)
  • Can be new parts or pre-owned, but will still cost less either way

Cons to budget gaming:

  • Someone can get the same type of rig as you for a much lower price
  • The PCs can sometimes be unbalanced
  • If buying pre-owned the parts could be a bit aged/ worn out

Looking at these points its safe to say the pros outweigh the cons. All this making it easier to get a game's graphics maxed out. Now the question remains: Are gaming computers meant for adults or can children still use them?

If your a parent as strict as mine are, then this question has a simple answer, 'There is no way your playing that game or getting that PC!'. Sound familiar?

The problem with ultra-realistic graphics is that there is bound to be a few simple minded people - or just young unknowing minds - that believe what they see in a game is right or sometimes the right thing to do.

In most today's games its possible to tear an enemy limb from limb, or maybe just blow them to smithereens! Heck, even I enjoy these games for watching that in fine detail...

Now lets look at extreme gaming PCs

Pros to extreme gaming:

  • Premium quality graphics, sound, etc. (You can now hear your enemies screams better!)
  • Bragging rights to a monster of a PC

Cons to extreme gaming:

  • Rigs are really, insanely expensive (sometimes performance is just a tad bit better than its budget counterparts)

Conclusion

Its up to you as the parent to decide whether your gaming PC should be kept behind lock and key or whether your children are allowed to enjoy its guilty pleasures.
