This makes the experience for me. I wouldn't game if people didn't talk much. Thus as much as I love PC graphic I can't stand to play it.

I think you find more console gamers using mics because of how readily available they are, too. Most consoles come pre-packaged with a headset and all you need to do is plug it into the controller (or sync it to the console if it's wireless) and you're good to go.

Also: OP, everyone is calling you a troll because most of your points are just over-exaggerated fallacies whereas other people are making valid arguments and you're shooting them down like they don't know what they're talking about.

You're also pairing a 2600K and GTX590 with a 17" monitor. Why?

I'll say this for you to think about...In your 1st post you rant about what a "true gamer" is...Then in post #10 you subscribe to the idea that is no "true gamer."
So which 1 is it? Are there "true gamers" or not? Apparently you don't even know yourself upsidedwnsmiley.gif

That was the beginning of your road to not be taken seriously teaching.gif

If we're being technical here, there were games for 'consoles' before personal computers. One of the first 'console' games was Pong.

To me a true gamer should not even try to debate which is better. A true gamer will own you the same despite the platform/pc it is played on. I love pc gaming as much as the next guy for various reasons but i also own an xbox 360/ds/n64/wii and will one day own a ps3. (ps2 broke frown.gif)

my point is if you want to use the term "true gamer" then use it right. I am a gamer at heart and love all platforms and pc's

A "true" gamer will play anything he can get his hands on. AKA like me.

 

 

I play PC, PSX, PS2, PS3, Xbox 360 (xbox i sdead :( ) Gamecube/wii, Gameboy Adv, DS (emulator), N64.

 

 

I forgot how many games I have. At one point I had well over 300.

post #216 of 250
I think we are all beating a dead horse here. Even though i havn't experienced the gaming industry from when it first started and evolved in the 80s, i have played many PC titles and consoles. Some of my favourite games of all time are on the consoles, mostly Sega and Nintendo, but just because i play console games does not mean i do not love PC gaming. I enjoy playing zelda, mega man, sonic, socom, final fantasy, phantasy star, etc as much as i enjoy playing my PC games such as S.T.A.L.K.E.R, witcher , mass effect and the list goes one. While in every aspect possible, PC gaming is better from the controls(KB+M), graphics, multiplayer, mods, replayability, i think it does not matter what you play your games on but what games you play. For most people, if they play mass effect on a PC or console, the story and game play is the same(aside from the controller vs KB+M), they will not notice a difference in the quality of the game. All in all, a real gamer is someone who understands and plays truly awesome games.

On a side not i love playing my PC, NES, SNES, Genesis, Xbox, PS2, Wii

My first post in this thread was my opinion, when I saw you pretty much insulting people (including me) saying that some PC games are better you would say things like "That's not a proper game because it doesn't have a proper soundtrack or story line"
This is what a troll would do.
I think the real question you have to ask there is; Why can't you accept other peoples opinion?

Me insulting others? Quote me examples, please! I just can't remember insulting others (including you).

In conclusion, I have played thousands of games in my life and have played probably hundreds of games on every console I ever owned.
I have owned the following consoles:
Atari 2600
Nintendo (original)
Genesis
Super Nintendo
TurboGrafx-16
Sega Saturn
Sega CD
Playstation
Nintendo-64
Playstation 2
I owned computers during all this time as well (TRS-80, Commodore 64, the list goes on... but not important). Having a broad background in console gaming I still prefer PC gaming exclusively. I will not even look at a console anymore. There's no comparison to make in my mind. There isn't a single console only game available that will make me go out and buy a console just to play it.
Yes, I've played Gears of War and several other newer console games since I do have friends and siblings who play consoles. But I will not buy a console again. It's a waste of money in my mind. I want my mouse, keyboard, and superior graphics (even though graphics do not define a good game, but they make great games better).
To the OP, come back here after you get seasoned and try to make a better argument. But I'm willing to bet that you will not feel the same in another couple of decades. I'm also willing to bet you do not own the PC in your sig. That's a computer you dream of having but can't have yet. So you are butt hurt about it and trying to trash PC gaming. Pics or GTHO. (they censor the real abbreviation?)

Was thinking of typing a similar response like this but you've already done it and done it great, excellent post.
Also I haven't owned a console since the Gamecube but origin has forced my hand into getting a 360 for Mass Effect 3. Gonna be weird playing it with a controller.

I would always choose PC gaming over console but when will people realize that console is where everything is now? Seriously developers obviously tend to the consoles more and more. For example BF3, Ubisoft, even rockstar. Time to face it IMO and stop acting like it isn't happening.

Lets post a "Consoles Are Better " in a PC enthusiast forum and see what happens. -3 hours later- wow about 270 posts who would have thought.

The point is a "true gamer" should have every console and a PC, playing most games on the PC and playing exclusives on their respective machine. Saying only "true gamers", which is a stupid term itself, will play on console is ignorant and say that people don't have the same views as you are stupid makes you stupid.
