That's just of the top of my head...

Half Life is for the PS2.
Max Payne is for PS2.
Minecraft? You can't be serious, I said give me a list of games that could POTENTIALLY compete with my list
Mirrors edge is for consoles.
Unreal Tournament is for consoles.
So you only have 7 games, of which 3 are strategy and 2 are rol games.

Also for that list you've written to me, I have another top 10 console exclusives that can make more justice to the comparison. You know, worse games...

A true gamer is a person that utilizes their hardware to the maximum potential so they can play the game. Aka, not a person with an i7 2600k and GTX 590 complaining about how consoles are better than PC. Hell, a true gamer doesn't even go to these threads

Soooooo WRONG!
Wrong, for the PC, it came out first.
Yes Minecraft, its an awesome game indeed, the idea and realisation behind it is perfect.
Ok instead of Mirrors Edge ill put like SystemShock 2
WRONGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGG

Lets not forget the awesome little games like P.O.W.D.E.R.

There's no such thing as a "true gamer" and even if there was, it wouldn't come down to which platform you play on. Gamers play games. That's all there is to it. Bickering over which platform is superior and judging others by what system they play video games on is not only stupid, but downright pathetic.

As often as people on these forums like to remind me how "mature" they are, I feel like there should be no need of me posting this, but.. grow up. Accept the fact that people have different tastes, that they might not like the same things you do. Stop trying to force everyone else to see the world through your eyes.

if you read the thread, the responses aren't to saying that pc is better, they're mostly trying to point out the flaws in the OP's argument.

The fact that people are comparing the PC version of Half-Life and Unreal Tournament to the PS2 version is disgusting. You might as well compare them to mobile version games if you going to pick games that so horridly failed to live up to the PC version.

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

1. Any game with mods...not every game is not stuck being the same thing
2. Stalker
3. BF2142
4. Silent Hunter Series or any simulation style games for that matter
5. About every game that is an RTS...there have been a few on consoles and they usually are a pain to even play
6. Infinity Engine games
7. Amnesia: The Dark Decent
8. MMOs...though there are MMOs on their way to consoles they aren't that great yet
9. Any game at a native 1080p resolution
10. TurboTax...(do that on a console and I will be impressed)
