BAttlefield 3 pre-order

post #1 of 34
Thread Starter 
So, yesterday I went into my local gamestop to preorder battlefield 3. No problem. So as I'm standing there waiting for him to put it through, and I realize he didn't ask me what platform (I was really looking to bash consoles, but he never asked), so I told him to make it a pc copy. The guy went through and switched it. I thought it was funny that he automatically assumed that I was just another regular old console gamer. As He is switching it, my buddy that came with me asks if I am going to preordermw3 as well, and I quickly answer no. So then, the guy at the counter asks me if I'm sure, and I'm thinking, "you know I'm a pc gamer now, and your honestly asking me if I want to pre order mw3, where they have boned pc gamers for two years now, and bf3 has much more quality?"

I tell the guy Yes I'm sure. I like my box artwork, especially on games like bf3, and I thought I would share a somewhat interesting story of my trip to gamestop, even though I got blocked from bashing consoles.

Anyone else wish PC gaming would get on the rise again and be the majority. I'm getting sick of console imports and I've only beena pc gamer for 4 years. Never touched a consoles since n64. Not a flame thread, just a friendly pc gamer thread.

Consoles are all good.

The guy was probably a console gamer

Or maybe he was just there too do his job and really didnt give a damn.



Although, when I preordered BF3, I was buying a xbox game at the time. I bought just cause 2, and then I asked the guy if i could pre order battlefield 3 as well. He said sure. And I said oh, I want to preorder the pc version by the way.

I think I made his day. lol, he said something along the lines of good too know there are still a few pc gamers out there. He must of known that I knew pcs were for the hardcore games, because ive bought like 10 xbox games off him.

By the way, you wanting too put down consoles - you would have looked like a complete d-bag. There is nothing wrong with a console - elitest pc gamers that think they are above console gamers are the real d-bags - console gamers are in it just for the fun of gaming, theres nothing wrong with that. You obviously dont know what its like too sit down on the couch in the lounge with your mates, handing the controller around playing a game together, laughing at each others mistakes etc. Do you prefer too sit in a dark room with no one home with your headphones on and your face 5 inches away from the screen pretending its real?

you should have given the gamestop guy more $h!t, i would have went off on the guy for not properly doing his job and then asked to speak with the manager to ask him why his employees are not doing there job correctly. But, that is just me and i like to be an @ss.

LOL, I mess with people sometimes, but not really in retail stores. It's not everyday that a PC gamer walks in there. It's gotta be rare for gamestop. Every single one of them I walked into, I am always the only pc gamer there. I LOL at cod now as well. They should redo their engine and stop charging us for dlc. frickin activision.

Consoles are good for certain games, but I would never use them for the games I play. Racing games, and games that you just never see on pc, thats what they are for. If you really want to enjoy the game and have the money, dish it out for a good PC. The console gamers that don't realize how much more powerful pc's are, those are the ones I don't like, but back to topic

Only reason I'd get an XBOX is for Halo, sad that they're not making Halo CE Remake and Halo 4 for PC :/

Ehh, I've gotten so used to mouse and keyboard, I physically cannot use the controller anymore. I can't aim for crap with it. Played xbox with my litte cousin and brother a couple weeks ago on black ops, I got destroyed all but one game.

Maybe the dude thought that no PC gamer with any sense would shop in Gamestop?
