What do you do on your Gaming PC besides gaming?

Recommended Posts

When not gaming it's general browsing and YouTube/Twitch watching.

 

Usually have F@H also running when not gaming... FOR THE SCIENCE!

I use my computer to assist others with the removal of their many many viruses. I implore my vast knowledge and funny sounding accent to assist mostly elders and they're kind enough to send me gift cards for my troubles. 😉

Interesting... I don't ever watch porn on my PC...  If anything I use my phone ("you won an iPhone!") 

But really I rarely watch it anyways,  same for youtube,  too much made up stuff and lies that everyone believes "because it's on youtube" 

 

Usually I watch stuff on bilibili,  the UI is way modern ,  the quality is better and I enjoy the format overall a lot more - although I don't watch things like tutorials etc,  it's mostly a music channel for me,  have an account and everything also! 

 

What I like most is no ads   and the comments are usually funny instead of hateful.  

 

Other than that?  Edit videos sometimes,  mostly just trimming,  compression...  I'll need to try OBS some time again,  GFE keeps bugging out, it's very annoying, sometimes it works fine then it doesn't... 

 

Other than that? Nothing at all,  I use my phone for most things internet really,  also don't like kbm controls much,  generally windows feels very old-fashioned and clunky to me (by design obviously)

Actually, most of the time, I usually just browse the web on my PC. I would consider it a gaming PC but I mostly just look at YouTube and reddit on it. It's basically this meme but in real life.

For those of you with dedicated gaming PC rigs, what do you do on them other than gaming?

a) Gaming (eg Steam)

b) Emulation (Gaming), legacy hardware (eg dosbox)

c) Watching youtube or netflix (usually use the TV box for these unless its' in 4K which the tv box isn't 4k, but the pc is)

d) Doing passive work (eg stuff that needs attention, but not immediately), active work will switch to whichever device is available, so that is either the pc, ipad, iphone, laptop etc. There's nothing quite like doing work in the middle of a funeral from a smartphone (true fact.) Passive work is basically I'm keeping an eye on things, mostly checking email or log files, tickets, etc. If something is basically on fire, I have the means of fixing a lot of stuff remotely, just can't fix actual hardware failures.

e) Programming... sometimes

f) Drawing... sometimes

g) Music... sometimes

h) Video editing.

 

I kinda just listed things in order of what the PC gets used for. I've wanted to do drawing and music stuff, but rarely ever get the time, space or hardware to do it. It's like yeah sure, let me just drop some money on some good equipment for that... oh wait, I don't have time now, or the idea passed.

 

The thing that bothers me with using the gaming PC for non-gaming things is that it collects a lot of cluttercruft. Like I have Visual Studio, Unreal, Unity, Godot and Xenko and a half dozen things I compiled with Visual Studio and just rarely get past compiling things before giving up because example projects in Unity or Xenko don't work, or the documentation is just too weak for a lot of C++ engines to really bother with. Sometimes I'm like "screw it, just let me buy something that's working out of the box" and even then... rarely the case.

 

A lot of it's a means to an end though. To make your own game, you need your own art and music assets, thus drawing and music are things that I want to do myself. So the PC gets used for it (or the Mac's, of which I have two, but those are absolutely not used for games. One was purchased expressly for building iOS/MacOS software) 

 

If I just cared about consuming and not producing content, I'd probably have jettisoned my software development hard drive already.
