They copied Microsoft and decided to just call the latest iteration the PC 1 to confuse everyone.

PC users can't count that high so they rely on Steam to help. Ever wonder why HL never made it to 3? Same reason - stupid people.

Have Valve released anything with the number 3 in the title?

Umm, Windows 2.0 came out in the late 80s:

I mean we're on Windows 10 right now, it should be obvious 2 is super old.

You are missing 3.1

Plus Windows 10 has technically had 3 or so iterations already (although they have all been free upgrades).

Edit: Actually, you are technically missing even more then that:

I would imagine most exclusive games won't stay exclusive forever and will appear on PC, if you need to play the must play games when they're out then yes you will need additional consoles. I'm way past having to play them so soon after release as I have a lot to get done in life. Each to their own, but good point

Do they, though? I don't think I've heard of that much. Like HZD or the Uncharted series. I would also mention that Nintendo doesn't just give way their stuff, but switch was included in the "Two you need" thing...

Which is why you need a switch to play those games. A few years time, HZD and uncharted will be on PC, no facts to back that up, just going on past games

Uncharted is available through Playstation Now (which you can do use on PC). I am actually considering getting it for the 2 or so Playstation 4 exclusive games that I care to actually play.

HZD isn't yet, but with the way they are adding games it is very likely to be in the future. I mean people said Final Fantasy XV would never be on PC and yet it showed up a year and a half after the console version.

Maybe. Maybe not. I have no idea. But I also wouldn't want to have to wait a few years for a game to maybe come out on PC. Especially since I'm not a big PC gamer. So, that's why I have all the systems. Well, that and playing with certain people. So, you would miss out on exclusives when they're relevant and most people are playing them. And maybe miss out on some completely...

i only listed actual keystone versions of windows.

3.1 isn't that dissimilar to regular 3, nor are all the CE editions different. it's usually just some sort of server integration upgrades.

i did list 8.1 and 8, though, and that's because 8.1 could be considered just windows 9.

as for the different versions of 10, those could be more considered as service pack upgrades, even though they don't do the service pack thing by name anymore.
