PC Gamers: A Reflection about PC gaming - Page 3

post #21 of 163
I personally put graphics as one of the important factors when I want a new game, but at the same time it isn't that big. I mean I've got a 360, PS3 and PC, but I game more on my PC not because it is "superior" but mainly because the games that exist across all consoles, most of them I find better on PC (eg. Skyrim, Olivion, GTA IV) and then there are other games I really like that aren't on the consoles (Dawn of War series, Worms Reloaded etc) but that isn't to say I hate consoles. I just feel that most console exclusives don't attract me, and so I don't buy them.

As a side note, I think BF3 kind of sucks. Not much like BF2, and it is more like MoH with bigger maps, pretty disappointed.. and I'm a BF fan ;D

Me??? I'm not arguing with you man, I just said what I like about gaming. Sorry if I offended you....

This thread seems more like a rant than a reflection. Anyways Im in it for the graphics, rts games, customization, mods, cheaper games, an addiction to overclocking, better community IMO, and more enemies in games. Example l4d on console doesnt have that many zombies running at you when compared to pc version, same goes for dragon age and bf3.

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..

Dude,

Even if we give you 100 games, what would it ever change? It's not about the number of games that PC has vs the number of games consoles have; it's about how we play the games. The advantage of PC is M&K support, mod support, graphical superiority (yes I said it), dedicated servers, triple-display support, full Internet access while playing, etc etc.

The stupid war "OMG my consol has moar exclusiv gamezzz than ur consol!!!111eleven1!!!" is reserved to videogames forums and should stay there.

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.

Counter Strike, Day of Defeat, Rainbow Six Rogue Spear, Medal of Honor Allied Assault. mplayer!

I stopped reading after " 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:"

.... go back to to games were are made on PC before 2007 go play every single one of them and tell me if there aren't at-least 50 awesome game to enjoy....

And NO PC gamers are not graphic whores like you think.. its just that PC gamers know more about capability of their hardware than console kids do.. The fact that seeing developers not taking advantage of those capability's and still making dx9 games where dx11 is available , gives us stereotype that we are graphic whores kapish ? thumb.gif

99% of them are rpg/mmorpg, how I stated smile.gif.

p.d: UT 4, Quake 1, 2 and 3, everquest, dota, baldurs gate (not an exclusive for PC, its for PS2), doom series (doom 3, the best of the series, is for Xbox, and xbox 360) and painkiller are games for the old generation. Want me to list you xbox/ps2/nintendo gamecube exclusive games I want to play that on PC I can't? The list would increase, lets say from 23 to 70?

The point of this thread wasn't which one has better games, the point of it was to make you realize PC gamers NOWADAYS (not in 1990 or 2002) look at graphics more than anything else.

Ok here are the reasons i switched to PC:
  1. Games are a lot cheaper.
  2. There are many free to play games.
  3. Fps Games are a lot better on PC.
  4. Starcraft.
  5. Better graphics.
  6. Customisability and mods.
  7. I can use any controller for my games (Xbox 360, PS3 and Wii)
  8. Got stiffed by the Xbox RMA process when i sent my elite Xbox 360 with HDMI into their service and got a dirty white HDMIless system back in the mail.
  9. Got stiffed by Xbox live when they charged £80 to my credit card and when i refused to pay it because i did not spend those points they deleted my Xbox live account and disabled the email it was attached to (Hotmail)

These are my reasons for my PC switch, That and i am currently really into 3D modelling and my laptop wasn't cutting the mustard in terms of that.
