yeah i skipped over the laptop portion, i'm still not used to seeing full GPUs in a laptop spec list despite them being that way for the last 2 years.

Yeah got it at a steal as well. Was just over a thousand on black Friday. Canadian mind you. This thing probably would have been like 800 bucks or so American. I checked out the steam library for the first time. Blew my damn mind with how many games are there. I know there are some older titles that are active on PC like the original battlefront 2. Or at least I heard it was. So that's of interest to me.

December 21st for the Steam winter sale.

Games to get, assuming you have a PS4 and not an X1
PUBG
Divinity: Original Sin 2 (my GOTY)
Cuphead

That's exactly what I have lol. I have the pro, and plan on grabbing the switch come January. With the laptop, I don't see a point in grabbing an Xbox. I really want cuphead so I was going to wait and see if it goes on sale for the winter steam sale. Divinity I have heard of, may need to check it out. Once again, kinda new. Not sure if my laptop with its specs can run pubg well enough.

don't just look on steam, the Humble Store and Humble Bundles are great places to find Steam and non-Steam versions of games for cheap. The Humble Monthly especially tends to have some good games in them for cheap every month. GOG is another storefront that will sell you DRM-free copies of games. There are other storefronts as well but I don't want the thread to turn into a grey market debate topic.

Thanks for the heads up. I actually thought humble bundle was through steam lol. Hopefully I proved I wasn't a troll on this board, and I'm looking forward to some actual PC gaming. One thing. I really don't like keyboard and mouse controls. I know the DS4 and the Xbox controller are compatible, which is suggested? Other then K&M as I know it is more accurate, I'm just used to controller set ups.

if you intend to play any shooter at any point down the road, controllers aren't an option. you will get reamed. controllers are subjective, ps4/x1/steam controller are all interchangeable at this point for me, except in Rocket League where i solely use the x1 controller. everyone has their own preference.

Yeah I figured if I wanted to jump into CSGO I would get smoked pretty hard. As long as both controllers are an option then I'm good.

Single player shooters are just fine with a gamepad. Although some work horribly. But in multiplayer ya you will get reamed.

Ever played Planescape Torment? It would run on a quarter of a potato but it's actually a really great game. I also suggest Witcher 3, Evil Within 1 & 2, Arma 3, Tomb Raider, Alien Isolation, Little Nightmares, >Observer, The Sexy Brutale, Arcanum, Pathologic Classic HD, The Age of Decadence, Wasteland 2, Condemned Criminal Origins, Prey, SWAT 4 on GOG, Umineko, The Nonary Games, Zero Time Dilemma, Danganronpa Series, .Hack GU Rebirth, and basically an endless list of other games. PC is the best platform, you're going to be happy.
