QOTD: Do You Take Your PC to LAN Parties?

We here at Tom's Hardware have been playing games for a really long time. Long before graphics was considered "graphics," we were already gaming.

It's amazing how technology has progressed in the last 25 years. These days, we don't have to leave our house to do anything. We can order milk from an online retailer--and probably toilet paper too. The Internet and all of its social mediums are changing the way we communicate. No longer do we have to do things face to face.

Or do we? I'd like to think there's always a really good side to communicating in front of someone. There's just a whole lot that you cannot communicate by words alone. A facial expression, a subtle movement of the hand or eyebrows--the list goes on. That being said:

The question of the day is: Do you take your PC to LAN parties?

    No. I take my Xbox 360 to LAN parties or I get together online and play together with the PC. Too much stuff. If I had a legitimate gaming laptop it wouldn't be a burden.

  • Absolutely! I just hosted a LAN party at my house on Saturday. There is nothing like the having all the gamers in the same room.

    I've got a full tower Thermaltake Armor+ loaded down with stuff. I'm terrified it will someday cave in the floor and kill my downstairs neighbors. The thought of moving it anywhere is... well, terrifying. Unless I could rig a moon rover kind of dolly for it, that would be very fun.

    I don't go to true LANs, but I bring my PC to my friend's almost every weekend and we play together online w/other people. I just can't get enough people to play with just the people there.
