I also don't see a single strategy game on there. Wouldn't a true gamer want to experience all genres of games?

In a few more years all of those games will be emulated on pc and every previous generation console game can already be emulated.

Whereas in order to play all of those same console games you must also own all of the consoles for them. Which would add up to cost more than your current pc.

Not to mention that a pc can do a hell of a lot more than gaming. Every place of work, in the US anyway, has a computer for one thing or another. Most have a lot more than one. I can make a 6-figure income using my gaming computer working with Pro-E. Do that with a console...

Your logic is flawed, if it can be called logic.

Excuse me sir, but you're distorting the post completely. Please, be more mature. /joke

If "true gamer" could in fact be defined, wouldn't you think they'd argue over which games are better and not the platform they use?

This guy sounds like a console fanboy just trying to pump his chest true gamers will always be pc consoles come and go but the pc is here to stay. And you do know consoles get patches and updates also but it takes alot longer for them to fix things you could be stuck with a game with a crash that you cant even finish on a console till the devs get around to putting the patch out. But on pc you can usualy find a way around a problem without waiting for the patch.

I would consider myself a True Gamer. I have been gaming since I was Five years old on the first atari, then the NES, then Nintendo 64, followed by ps1. I was always on consoles, and laughed at my friend who was a PC gamer and spent tons of money on it (days of tribes and quake). I took a five year "vacation" from being able to play any games, but when I got back into it I was convinced by a friend to try gaming on his PC. After playing the same games I played on a Xbox 360 on hid Gaming PC I was hooked. The rich graphics of PC gaming allows me to get drawn into the game further enjoying my experience. I have never looked back.

IMO, a True gamer will have multiple consoles and PC, being a cross platform gamer lets you enjoy all games specifically ones that are console exclusive. thumb.gif

What I find funny, is that he claims to not have a console, and has a PC with 2600k and dual 590s? Oh yeah, and avoiding the content filters by posting a picture thumb.gif
