Consoles do this too.

As for the statement that consoles dont have to update their games...either a patch will be released that you have to wait for it to download and patch itself (just like a PC) you you have to buy it as DLC which a PC user does not. You still have updates just the same as we do. For the comfort I prefer to be in a nice reclined computer chair with my legs up then slouching on a couch and having you mother bother you when she wants to watch the news. I spend much less on games that my buddy who plays x-box. Steam sales and Amazon sales make games so much cheaper than any console. I got 30 games for around $2 a pop, in an orange box sale, and amazon sales....and for me, graphics do matter, watching somebody play BFBC2 on xbox vs my PC makes a huge difference and it seems like its a totally different game.

None of your points make any sense whatsoever.

Your definition of "true gamer" is made up and completely subjective. What you are basically doing is self-serving your argument by making up a definition then using claims on why that definition is true. I can do the same thing. I can state that a true gamer seeks the best gameplay experience possible. All multiplatform games are better on PC (with the exception of Saint's Row 2). Ta-da. rolleyes.gif

You stated that a true gamer has to play the highest rated games. There are barely any strategy games on consoles. How will a true gamer play Empire/Napoleon/Shogun: Total War, Hearts of Iron III, Civilization 5, Europa Universalis, Starcraft 2, Supreme Commander, Supreme Commander 2, Dawn of War series, Dawn of War 2 series, etc if true gamers only exist on consoles rolleyes.gif Do note the console version of SupCom is unplayable.

Consoles do not have more games on PC. Consoles only have a handful of exclusives. There are games being released every single day on PC whether it's a free game or a retail game. Indie games are largely unsuccessful on consoles. XBLIG is full of garbage and is hidden under dozens of dashboard. Super Meat Boy, Cthulhu Saves the World, Solar 2, Beat Hazard, etc are all XBLA or XBLIG titles that have sold more in a week on PC than they have on their console lifetimes. You'll also never see some indie games like Dear Esther on consoles. Lastly, some mods are full on games themselves. You can literally but The Orange Box and have enough mods to satisfy every genre of gaming for the rest of your life.

As for the money issue, you seem to forget that a console gamer needs a nice HDTV for his consoles. Also I paid $7.50 for Dead Island, $5 for Rage, $2.49 for Just Cause 2, $10 for Deus Ex: Human Revolution, $7.50 for Dragon Age: Origins Ultimate Edition + Dragon Age 2, etc. Find me similar deals on consoles then we'll talk. Do you seem to forget Free-To-Play that does not exist on consoles? League of Legends, Heroes of Newerth, Tribes Ascend, Team Fortress 2, Super Monday Night Combat, Battleforge, Battlefield Heroes, Rusty Hearts, Global Agenda, World of Tanks, etc. You'll never see anything like this on consoles due to their closed nature.

Multiplayer? Dedicated servers vs 0 ping host advantage riddled with lag and long wait times when host migration occurs. Clearly the same thing rolleyes.gif Compare Battlefield 3 MP on the PC vs the console version. You can't. It's a completely different experience.

As for what do I think? I think you should sell your rig or give it to someone else. Clearly, they'll enjoy it more than you ever will.

FALSE! If you believe that a TG will need to buy a lot of games, you're NOT a TG thumbsdownsmileyanim.gif A TG does his/her research & with excellent judgement
(if you do your research), a TG will be able to determine what to buy & not to buy thumb.gif

I fail to see the point you are trying to make. This thread has nothing to do with nonexistence of the subject.

I feel quite elitist about capabilities of a platform like a PC compared to the joypad-thumping console platforms. I feel so elitist about it that I won't bother expanding on it since it would take time and that is time I do not have! smile.gif
Needless to say I feel as elitist about this as I do about looking down on Apple products, Apple fanboys and the Apple empire as a whole.

Why because they have better graphics? Thats not what a TG judges.
A PC gamer can't play: SOTC, ICO; MGS 3 & 4, GOW series, Gears of War 2 & 3, Ninja Gaiden series, LBP, Uncharted Series, Crash Series, The Darkness 1, Dante's Inferno, Bayonetta, etc.
I've used mods for games only 3 times on the last 10 years: 1 for crysis, 1 for GTA IV and the last one for HF 2. Why'd I care of the mods?
And I will never play those games. You forgot Dota 2, btw wink.gif
