[GamersMint] Bethesda: Consoles to be the lead platform for Skyrim - Page 35  

post #341 of 384
You know, I remember a time where the only thing that mattered is if a game was fun to play or not.

It seems now the most (only?) important thing is which platform is "lead" as opposed to whether or not a game is actually any fun. To boycott a game because it wasn't developed with your preferred platform in mind is both elitist and completely undermines what games are ultimately all about: having fun.

Stomping your feet and complaining about the lead platform of a game is childish and disgraces all gamers from the (alleged) console "peasants" to the (self-titled) PC "elite."

Yuppers...I'm getting a refresher on how hard some games can be with the Far Cry pack I picked up on Steam. No saves, and lots of space between Save points. I made the mistake of going past one of the mission points, doubled back and got stuck at the bottom of a tower where I kill the occupant, kill everyone alerted by the gunfire and grenades go down to the tent and someone always spawns back into the camp and catches me by surprise. He can see me through tent walls runs in clips me and I die. The end.

But I love it!

Im sorry but there are plenty of people on pc who want to play these games, despite what you think of them. If you dont like it dont buy it, but at this point its pretty stupid as we dont know much about it yet, no reason to outlaw the game on a system.
half assed game= gta 4 original released on pc. it was terrible.

If you are going to release on a system, take the time to do it right. treat your customers with the respect they deserve, and maybe they will give it back.

Now that I can agree with.

And this is where the shoe is on the other foot aswell because they are developing across multiple platforms. It has to be right for all of them. No matter what system someone games on they are a gamer, they all deserve an equal amount of respect.

But let's be honest. Skyrim isn't out yet. It's too early for people to judge what it's going to be like on PC, or even consoles, especially in regards to some of the complaints I've seen in this thread.

Grand Theft Auto 4 ran like crap on console. I really want to buy it to see how bad it truly is on PC.. that and to mod it in order to run better.

Rogue Warrior makes me want to drop to my knees pull out my Tanto grab a piece of Rice paper and have my 2nd lop off my head while I proceed to disembowel myself. And that's just during reasonable instances. Forget what I want to do when it gets laggy and the sound stutters.
