Ok so back in the day of DOS which from my eyes was a basic OS, games were given there full potential. There were not massive programs running in the background placed there just to "consume" system resources. The resources were given to the program you were running.
Today were so involved in "multitasking" that playing a computer game requires a computer with the power to go nuclear. My idea is simple. A basic operating system to run a game. It could use bare minimal system resources and there would no longer be a problem with having to up grade your computer to run the new game you just bought. Basically, after you install the game, restart your computer and boot straight in to the game. All of your system resources would be devoted to running that game. The games are supposed to come with everything they need to run, right? Could this idea take away the need for the windoz requirement for a game. As long as the nessasary files and drivers are in place on your hard drive, it should not matter what OS one is using. Ideas? Thoughts? Or am I just the village idiot?
I am NOT talking about gaming consoles! Yes they are computers but so is my calculator. I like games on the "PC". There bigger, more often then not IMO better, and have many more options for the game on pc.
I have owned N64, GameCube, Wii, PS2. I have played many games on XBox and 360. "Sony shot there self in the foot for me and the PS3 with the no BC. Non of these systems that had pc versions of games ported to them ever did them justice. Sorry, I like the gaming experience on a pc better.
