A customer came in looking to pack his games and game consoles because he’s flying cross country. I suggested shipping as its safer and you can get insurance. He said it was cheaper to take it with him, but he’s worried about his consoles.
Me: see, that’s why all my games are on Steam. If my PC gets hurt I just re-download it to a new pc.
Him: ya, but I gotta have a controller.
Me: but you can use a controller, and there’s the Steam sales.
Him: ya, that’s the only thing that pisses me off. All the games I pay $60 you all get for 2.
Me, with two thumps up: yep, pc gaming all the way!
Him, laughing and smiling: ah, man, don’t give me any of that pc master race shit.
Truth be told I have a bunch of consoles too, and hundreds of games spread between them. But I love my pc. We had a great, if short, chat and I wished him good luck on getting his games across the country.
Mostly this was the geekyest convo I’ve had outside of a convention. I love games, and I wish I could talk about them all the time.
