Will they have to make games just as playable on 'lower' end rigs

Upvotes

Obviously with super inflated prices of parts due to a plethora of reasons do you think going forward they'll have to keep games playable for those with not the nearest hardware?

It's all great having a 5000km map but some games graphic down scale badly. I was wondering if you think going forwards Devs will have to make sure then run well on older PCs as people get priced more and more our of upgrades.

Sorry if this has been asked new to the sub

Why is DirectStorage not even being tested?

Upvotes

Why has no one even made a benchmark/demonstration for the DirectStorage tech? It's out there right? Why has even Microsoft not demoed it?

Preferably something free, a demo, or on sale/cheap.

Looking for PC exclusive(non-moba) must-have games.

Upvotes

Most of the lists online include AAA games I’ve already played on consoles or mobas.

So far I have 7DTD, CSGO, Valorant, PoE, RuneScape, Minecraft(Java), Garry’s Mod. I was debating on getting WoW.

I’m into top-down shooters, FPS, tower defense, base building, and MMOs.

Thanks in advance!

I'm new to PC gaming, any tips?

Upvotes

I have a custom built PC coming in next week and this will be the first time I ever had a PC for gaming. Before this, I always played on Playstation pretty much my whole life. Can anyone give me any pointers on what to do or what to expect when starting out?

Multi-Play game like City Skylines?

0 Upvotes

My kids want to play City Skylines with me, but it doesn't appear to be a multi-player game (there's a Mod we'll try, but a native multi-player would my preference).

What games folks would suggest?

We would prefer a co-op style over a PvP style game, although at some point Civilization will be on the list...
