ok, as a divesion and taking advantageof a nice home entertainment setup, are there console..ps3, xbox etc, games that have more to offer than a shootum up? I enjoy strategy games... sims...a really nice flight sim..ww1 or two but the reviews make them all to be trashy..
Anyone with a game they love???
I would even go onlne for team play.. although shooters are not my thing.. It would be nice to see a realistic TACTICS game...

any help for me???

EA had a game NFL Heach Coach 09 where you are the coach. I've never played it, but I have a friend who liked it. They never made a newer version though.

I've got a PS3, and find that most games are fast and furious. There are a couple of games that are deeper...EA Sports Tiger Woods golf has a slower pace, and I like it alot. Also, Gran Turismo 5 is a fantastic racing game that is very polished...

I was considering a console as well and so what I did was go on Amazon to see which games piqued my interest enough, and which system had more of what I wanted. After looking at 100s of titles in various genres I made my decision...I bought nothing.

Currently I'm playing Shooters and Action Games in my PS3.  All others are played in the PC.
My current faves are:
Uncharted 3
Battlefield 3

Stunning graphics? PC graphics are hands down better. A console is like $300, which is more expensive than a PC video card that will provide a much better graphics experience.

I play a lot of FPSs and other graphic intensive games and I would never even consider a console.

You can get a console for a lot of valid reasons, but better and smoother graphics experience is not one of them.

I game on both PC and PS3.Sadly console games are made for the mass market.More "traditional" wargames are really a niche market and the PC platform allows easy mods and updates.You need to remember that yes PC's do have better graphics (as long as you get a good gfx card)but the techology of the consoles is now about 6 years old.You cant really expect aged equipment to run real bang up to date games.That being said,there are some great console games out there,but they wont be like the traditional wargames.When the next Gen Consoles come out this may change,but dont hold your breath.

The last console system I owned was a 3DO...Why?...because Panzer General and Allied General were ported over to it and I do believe those were the first non DOS versions of the games......
