PC vs Console Gaming Costs

Green Man Gaming came to my attention today, it came popping up on my newsfeed that they had an up to 80% off Spring Sale and as the kids birthdays are coming up I thought I would take peek.

I did not actually spend anything but I have certainly found a site that can guide me in the way of downloadable games for the kids.

They also have a forum on their site too which I have not peeked at yet but for sure it will give me some great information on some of the things that the kids might enjoy.

The issue I find with finding games for the kids is that there are so many out there and without having a central place to look these things up and get a good description of what the game entails I tend to struggle, but this website has changed all that for me now I can just take a peek on here and see what it is that the kids are going on about.. ha ha ha..and with over 5000 titles I should find what I am looking for.

I saw quite a few familiar titles including Lego Marvels Avengers on there and they are a fraction of the cost of buying disks, I had never even considered there was a possibility of this downloading games instead of buying the disks, I have always been blinded that you have to have a console of some sort, but actually PC Gaming and downloading the games is something that I will now look more into as being a skint kind of family it will be far more cost effective for us to do and I wouldn't fee as bad not letting the kids have what they want, I mean if you can get a game by downloading it for a fraction of the cost of buying a Disc then I am all for it....

We purchased a Playstation 3 console for Xmas and it has not been used that much, Playstation 3 games can be quite expensive, as any other game for any other console is, so they only have a couple and as they are only still 6 they tend to damage the disks and not take very much care of them so they never last long anyway.

Seeing this Green Man Gaming has changed how I look at gaming for the kids in both terms of how the twins will encounter gaming, Olivia always complains anyway that the games are all boy games, so hopefully we might be able to find her something girly amongst these 5000 titles.....
