PC Gamers: A Reflection about PC gaming - Page 11

post #101 of 163
To be completely honest with you amazing graphics and native 1080p are a huge reason why I play PC games. But I also play games with iffy graphics like Rift and manage to start a guild and clear two 20 man dungeons leading the whole thing just having an amazing time.

Some people shrug off MMOs but there is no experience on consoles or anywhere else like downing a boss you've worked on for weeks with 10-20 good friends. It's a really unique thing in gaming and you consoles simply do not haave the flexibility even taking hardware constraints and greedy platform holders out of the equation.

I play games just for the graphics and I'm completely disgusted by the fact I can't play all the latest games maxed out with my 4850. Screw you guys, I'm buying a console.

I'm a PC gamer. I've been one since 2007 after getting the Ati HD4870. The war between consoles and PC has been there for more than 5 years. And PC gamers always have the same excuse: The PC is better for having games with better graphics,without realizing that the best games are for consoles and not for PC, which leads to think that in games everything is not graphics. So here's my reflection:

PC gamers don't enjoy gaming, the enjoy graphics. And that's why you get the best rig, just to play the game on the maximum settings. And if graphically a game doesn't meet your expectations, no matter how awesome it is, it's BS (like BF 3 for example, where a lot of people had the nerve to complain about blurry textures, when the lightning and particle effects are awesome). And that's true.

A game is not all graphics; it's a story, a gameplay, realism and a design.And don't mix design with graphics because they are 2 different aspects. Realism is a match of various things: Graphics + physics and particle effects + story events + sound. So as you can see, the graphics attribute is always in company with another attribute.

And don't get me wrong; I'm a complete PC gamer. I don't own any console (and never will). I'm just trying to make a real point about us. Here there are too many PC gamers that make me sick when they talk so bad about BF3, for example. And it's because they compare it with the consoles. They launched the Back To Karkand maps, and people are starting to complain about them. Why, dudes, why? They are the exact same maps as they were in BF 2, wait, not the exact same, with 100x times better graphics! And they aren't satisfied, because nothing will satisfy those people. That's why they make me sick.

So that's it. I want you to give me your comments and opinions. But try to be honest with yourself.

I don't agree with the bolded statement. But ya there are plenty of whiners. Just like in real life. biggrin.gif

"I'm a PC gamer. I've been one since 2007" Stopped reading. I don't mean to be a jerk by any means, but you have only seen things from 07+ that's not a lot. You need some history before you do a "Reflection about PC gaming."

oh oops my bad it's only 2010 on.
but next time u encounter a boat, use the RPG.
also never expects to stay alive, being shot at, in cloak. when ur getting shot turn on armor.

At the beginning of this sentence I was thinking "this guy is a jerk," but at the end I was thinking, "wait, he's right..."


When I started gaming on PC, it was a family PC, meaning no graphics card and it was pretty much poop, to put it nicely. I could barely run games, but I had a blast playing them! I enjoy console games as well, but prefer them on PC if the option is available simply because you have more options. Both console and PC side, modern games interest me a lot less than they used to. I still play old games which by todays standards have terrible graphics (Pokemon Red/Blue, Final Fantasy 9 and below, Zelda OoT, Gran Turismo 2 are games Ive been playing recently).

been a pc gamer since 1992.. Please let me know when consoles come out with something along the lines of xcom or Master of Orion 2 or "insert game that requires vast amounts of thinking and planning" I'll make the switch.


Consoles Ive owned

Atari
Nintendo
Super Nintendo
Nintendo 64
Xbox

Sold Xbox in 2006 haven't played a console since.


Its not graphics.. its gameplay and ability to mod the game... frankly consoles dont have the first and will NEVER have the second.


EDIT --- Also when A zork clone is released for console i might consider it. The graphics on zork were just awesome.
