What PC gamers can expect this year

2019 saw great improvements in the PC gaming market – impressive new graphics cards and processors were released along with high-end desktop processors that boasted more cores and threads than ever before.

There were also a variety of popular video game releases – including Resident Evil 2 and the PC version of Red Dead Redemption 2.

Hopefully when the console peasants get hardware from this century we'll finally see a generational leap in graphics and especially AI.

Stuff I'm keen to see:

- Next OnePlus flagship
- Nvidia RTX 3000 Series
- AMD's supposed 'Nvidia Killer' flagship
- More affordable 120+Hz 4K monitors
- Cheaper, better VR headsets
- Gods & Monsters from Ubisoft
- Cyberpunk 2077
- Having time to play the best games in Xbox PC Game Pass, Humble Monthly & Uplay+

Waiting on a simple VR standard to arrive so you don't need one of each headset to play games.

By the time the peasants all get their new hardware it will already start to age pretty quickly, and the cycle will just keep repeating until consoles are upgrade-able and have a proper OS like a PC, essentially becoming PC's

With the price of consoles skyrocketing each generation (was to be expected as they started using pc hardware) everyone might as well buy PCs.

The only difference between a decent work PC and a gaming PC is a graphics card. You can get a really decent GPU for the price of a console and immediately save infinity money on games with Xbox PC Game Pass, Humble Monthly and Uplay+.

And if someone's entire PC sucks, well then they need a new PC anyway. Nothing to do with gaming.

And then introduce them to the problem of just too many games too play! :ROFL:

Stadia is nothing more then a niche. It has been terrible since launch.

What I am looking for:
-Cyberpunk
-Vampire Masquerade 2
-Something that can beat my 2080ti
-Affordable 144hz 4k displays
More news on Baldurs gate 3
-VR maybe being more just niche

Yeah, it's ridiculous how many games you can get on PC from subscriptions. I don't recommend Uplay+ unless their online games are what you're after, but it's worth subscribing for 1-2 months now and again for major releases, like Gods & Monsters, Watch Dogs, The Settlers or a new AC. Much cheaper than buying the games outright, you get the most premium digital editions and you can use the opportunity to play other gems like Anno 1800, Trackmania etc.

Xbox Game Pass for PC is worth keeping around permanently though. Humble Monthly usually justifies the price with at least one expensive game.
