Why a "True" gamer will always prefer a console over a PC? - Page 8

I never said anything about graphics. They are only 1 part of the equation.

-Precise controls with keyboard and mouse with no aim assist. This forces the player to depend on their own skill.
-Dedicated servers that support larger amounts of players and create a lag free, competitive environment.
-Support for modern resolutions unlike consoles where most games are sub-720p. Playing games below the native resolution of a monitor or TV results in a very blurry image.
-Mod tools extending the life of the game while simultaneously giving players tools to use for their creativity allowing them to create their own games.

And yes better graphics because better graphics results in a more immersive, more satisfying game experience. The pop-in and texture streaming for Rage on PC is fixed through easy tweaks while the console versions load up textures every single time you turn around. How can you be immersed in a huge fictional game world when you have unfinished textures loading in front of your face every time you turn around or have an extremely short draw distance?

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.

A console gamer can't play Red Orchestra 2, Serious Sam 3, Serious Sam Double D, Killing Floor, Hard Reset, NecroVisioN, Gemini Rue, Shattered Horizon, Natural Selection 2, Hawken, ArmA II, Dear Esther, Blacklight Retribution, The Ball, Terraria, Minecraft, etc along with all the f2p games I listed. Your point?

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?

This isn't about you. You made a statement defining true gamers along with several other generalizations. Many games started out as mods (Red Orchestra, Killing Floor, The Ball, etc) and many mods are superior to actual games (go check out Out of Hell for Unreal Tournament 2k4).

And I will never play those games. You forgot Dota 2, btw wink.gif

Once again, this isn't about you. I will never play any of the games you listed either. Your point?

Actually, don't bother. The console has already lost.
This thread is a fail.

Sound like a good deal.

10. ICO (Adventure)
9. Little Big Planet (Puzzle)
8. Shadow of the Colossus (Action/Adventure)
7. Heavy Rain (Graphics Adventure)
6. Gears of War (Series) (Action)
5. Dark Souls (RPG)
4. Killzone (Series) (Action FPS)
3. God of War (Series) (Action)
2. Metal Gear Solid (Series) (Adventure/Action
1. Uncharted (Series) (Adventure/Action)

Which is yours? (Lets see how varied it is in terms of genres).

Ok if you had half a brain you would know that everyone prefers different things, if all the people were the same, the world would be boring, so starting a thread like this is pointless.

If you ask me, i grew up on a PC, and will stay on a PC, Good day sir! wink.gif

Really? So now games getting updates is a bad thing? Doh! I'm done here. This is too comical

This topic isn't and shouldn't be discussed on an overclocking forum. All it brings is rage.

"True" gamer is a delusion, made up to justify one side or the other. It has no merit. Just like there is no "True" racer. You can make the argument that NASCAR is just taking left turns all day, but EU Touring is just as much "racing". Console's have their place, PC has it's place. Mobile has it's place. The starter of this thread was very likely aiming to start a thread designed to quickly go downhill; any true gamer would understand there isn't one way to have fun.

Which is yours? (Lets see how varied it is in terms of genres).

So, in other words, your "vastly varied taste" can be summed up as action/adventure and FPS with a lonely puzzle game tossed in. Yep, none of those to be found on PC rolleyes.gif

Now lets try the PC side:

1. Tribes Series (Z-FPS - PS, this is an almost non existent genre on consoles with the only exceptions being a PS2 port of Tribes 2 and Xbox's Section 8 which is again based off of tribes and is lacking by comparison in almost every respect)
2. X-Plane (Proper Flight Sim - oh look consoles, you don't have any of these either)
3. Red Alert 2 (RTS - Hmm... consoles looking shabby here too)
4. Battlefield 2 (Large Scale, Team based, semi-realistic FPS - Consoles have all of... ONE of these. It lags terribly)
5. TrackMania 2 (Car Racing based on custom track creation - consoles have em, but they're all poor clones with poor customization and graphics with limited to no online play)
6. Amnesia (Horror puzzle - none of the sad arcade Resident Evil or Dead Space nonsense)
7. Metro (Graphically stunning FPS Adventure)

8-10 not needed, ive already got a more varied set of games than you could come up with, and mine are actually exclusive.

SOTC and ICO can be emulated
First 3 MGS games can be emulated (I'll give you the 4th one.)
First two GOW games can be emulated (I'll give you the 3rd one.)
First Killzone can be emulated.
I don't care about the rest, so they don't count (since we're throwing personal opinion into this now.)
Except Uncharted. I liked Uncharted.
