My bad. I read it too quickly. No matter though. The principle is the same. When discussing which platform provides the best gaming experience, it doesn't matter how much they cost. Now if the question is which will the typical teenager buy (fine, or have bought for them), then you get no argument from me. That isn't the topic of this discussion, though.

It's only a factor when determining the game platform to which they will have access. It has no bearing whatsoever on which platform provides the best gaming experience. It's like saying the tails on monkeys are much more useful than those on clams, so the clam's tail is less effective.

I never meant to argue that the PC isn't a better platform than consoles. Sorry if it looked that way.

Already 12 pages...

The difficulty of a game isn't supposed to come at the expense of usability. If the game is too easy to play with a mouse + keyboard, then the game is not well made. They should make it harder without touching the controls. Most games are made with console controllers in mind so, especially for FPS games, become too easy with a mouse (discounting the numerous problems with mouse and keyboard control configuration from lazy/ignorant devs), hence they are not well made for the PC.

I just noticed this reading through some of the other posts, and I had to laugh (just a little, promise). You do realise that both WoW and Guild Wars actually have their feet planted in the competitive scene? Guild Wars had tournaments on a regular basis with very large cash prizes for winners (talking $10,000 +). WoW is featured on MLG, Global Agenda also had cash prizes for tournaments aswell.

I don't think I need to go into the console competitive scene seems I covered it in a past post.

It seems to me like you don't actually know what the definition of competitive, or skill, is. To you it seems to be that if you don't play Starcraft, or a FPS with a mouse and keyboard, then people suddenly cannot be competitive.

A player can be skilled, and game at a professional level, regardless of the game he plays, the platform he plays it on, or the control device he uses to play said game.

To say otherwise just shows ignorance to competitive gaming as a whole and is a slap in the face of those who do dedicate their time to play at a high level of gaming regardless of what platform they play on.

Not all games lend themselves to keyboard and mouse particularly well. Try playing a fighter with a mouse...

In general Western pc games tend to be better than Western console games. But there are plenty of hardcore Japanese games and they tend to favor consoles. That's why I like my ps3.

I play WOW, but it's hardly a competitive game. There are just too many random and imbalanced elements imo. Simply having competitions does not make it a competitive game.

I totally see where you are coming from with this, and I do agree with it. WoW is not a competitive game by nature. Not compared to, let's say, Guild Wars. That doesn't take away the fact that it has a competitive scene within an established organisation. Therefore it is a MMO that is played competitively.

Basically. I'd just like to emphasize that I think ultimately the mechanics of the game itself prevent it from being a true competitive game, not the fact that many players choose not to participate in pvp.
