Well I fully admit to being a graphics whore. That's why I put my rig together; to be blown away by the highest graphical settings possible. Crysis 2 and BF3 both satisfy me very much in the graphics department (as well as just being really good games). Nothing on console even comes close to Crysis 2 on Ultra in DX11 on a top end rig. Not saying that graphics are all there are to gaming, but to me they are the most important thing and I don't deny it.

I certainly wouldn't consider myself a serious "gamer" though. I enjoy to push my hardware and see the results, that's all....

Ya i dont know what your talking about, i really dont like consoles for the fact that they dont have a mouse and keyboard. also the mod support that pc games have is unlike anything on console. Even though i really care about the graphics it is definetly not the only thing to complain about.

Not in my opinion. In fact there's no game on PC that can have in general the quality game slike Uncharted, God of War, Metal Gear Solid, etc have. Not even close to, huh.

And I'm going to tell you why you think that: Because those games are exclusives for PC. List me PC exclusives OF THIS GENERATION you would like to play if you would have a console. I will tell you which games I would like to play on the consoles:

Gears of War 2, 3
Uncharted 1, 2 & 3
Killzone 2 & 3
Metal Gear Solid 4
The Darkness
Dante's Inferno
Little Big Planet 1 & 2
Heavy Rain
Halo Reach
Bayonetta
Alan Wake
Resistance 1 & 2
God of War 3
Infamouse 1 & 2
Daemon Souls
Ninja Gaiden 2

I listed you 23 games. Now you list me 23 games wit the same or similar ratings the games above in general receives in sites like IGN or GameTrailers. Remember you can't mention games like Diablo 2 or Age of Empires, because they aren't from this generation. This is going to be interesting... I can guarantee you 99% of the games you're going to list me are mmorpg/rpg you never played.

And theres nothing wrong with that but there is generalization that all we care about as a whole is graphics. If I were to poke fun at the steryotypes of console gamers I would say they are all a bunch of 10 year-olds when that isn't true either.

So here's my reflection:
PC gamers don't enjoy gaming, the enjoy graphics....

I quit reading about right there. Actually, not really, but that's where you lost all of your credibility along with the comments that followed.

PC gamers do care about more than just the graphics, it's just why not enjoy them if they're available? If you owned a really fast car and went on the Autobahn I bet you'd be flooring it.

My advice: Ask people who have been PC gaming for longer than you have, more like over 10 years and ask them what their favorite games are. Dark Age of Camelot, Everquest, Counter Strike, Day of Defeat, Rainbow Six Rogue Spear, Medal of Honor Allied Assault, Unreal Tournament, SWAT 3, and WWII Online are a handful of my favorite games, old ones that don't have the best graphics, but still some of my favorite.

I didn't read any responses to OP.

I've been a PC gamer for 10 years. I usually turn graphics as low as possible in every game I play because I HATE video lag. I don't give a fart about graphics.
