Im just a gamer who is obsessed with computers. After realizing my underpowered Xbox 360 was suffering overheating issues (which made games like minecraft freeze up, which required a reboot to fix it) and liquid cooling my console wasn't an option, I decided to ditch consoles and make the switch to PC gaming. The other reason why I decided to make the switch to PC gaming was due to the fact it had lots of advantages and very few disadvantages. I later briefly switched back to consoles when I got a PS4, but ditched that too when my experience playing Fallout 4 on it was mediocre at best due to the limited control over graphical settings and being stuck at a low framerate.
