Crap. All I got is a PC. You know PCs have almost every game that's available to consoles, if not now then eventually. I don't play a variety of games, but I have a good portion of the well know ones. I mostly play CS:S and Warcraft 3 currently, as well as Runescape, of course. I don't know how well my gaming critiques go. I literally have no taste when it comes to anything. I can spot a bad game, but on the whole, I enjoy most games. Anyways, I might apply, but probably won't get it. xD DISCRIMINATION AGAINST PC GAMERS!!! Ironic statement as everyone here uses a PC to play at least Runescape. :P

PC Games are the best kind! Don't let the fact that you are a PC gamer deter you from applying!

^ If we were to get 2 successful applicants and one was PC and another was 360 I would be happy.

Then I'll consider it. :P Again, I don't play a ton of games, but I have most of the major RTS and FPS games. We'll see. That's all I'm gonna say. :D

Edit: Application submitted. Hope you like it. If not, I gave it a shot, and I don't have any regrets...yet. xD

I've never owned a console (yes, I'm so primitive, ain't I? :P) though I have played on friend's ones before. I have played and still play lots of different types of PC Games. I think many times PC games are overlooked since Console games are usually better graphical quality. I think there's probably a higher amount of people who play PC games both because PCs are so versatile and more people have them, and because PC game types range wider than Console games.

I'd enjoy reading some PC game articles. ;) Goodluck to everyone.

Really, It doesn't matter if you only have a PC - PC's have such a large library of games, and let's face it, everyone here plays games on the PC. Even if all you do with games is on the computer, you should still apply. :D

And of course consoles too. Hell, it doesn't matter what you have really, it matters more if you can write really cool articles.

-----

And this is just a post to mention that the deadline has been extended a week due to lack of applications - come on guys, apply!

Well I just recently submitted my application. Luckily for me I am multi-console owner. Meaning that I play my PC and Xbox 360 frequently. Keeping my fingers crossed >.<
