Rant: FPS on console only

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
i just played a bit of Resistance:fall of men on the PS3 and i thought the game was pretty good. i only played for 15 minutes, but still enough to get a feel to it.

i'm a pc gamer, always has, always will. don't get me wrong, i don't hate console. i just think that some type of games should be available on their platform of choice.

of course, this is purely a question of taste, but i think FPS should always be available to PC. i've seen so many FPS games, that look really good, available on console only.

i've played halo on PC, and thought it was good. still waiting on halo 2 since i don't have Vista.

that's it, just wanted to vent my frustration.

See this is the problem:

All X console has same hardware - Coders can code and optimize for said hardware.

PC's have so many variations. I may have a 8800GTX and you a 2900 which works totally different and third person a 7600GT and a fourth a 8800GTS..

You can't make a game require a GTX and you can make it maxed out look really good on a 7600GT so what do you do?

Gaming is dead! No just kidding. I see your point MGX, but I also agree with Hermit though to be honest.

I hate it when a game is only released on a console and not PC. At the same token I do not like it when games are only released on the PC and not a console as well.

Sure sometimes it hurts us PC gamers (as in Oblivions crappy interface water downed for console users) BUT as PC gamers we always have the ability with mods to "fix" it to our liking.

In short the gaming love should be spread to EVERYONE!

i fully understand your point MGX. but my point is, there are some genre that do not belong to console, and some genre that do not belong to PC.

a game like resistance:fall of men should be on PC, make it to console if you want, but you have to make it for PC.

a game like dynasty warriors belong to console. i've tried it on PC, and while it's still good, the feeling is not the same.

lego star wars is fun on the PC, but i've tried it on the console, and it was great. felt like home.

Declaring whether a specific game, let alone an entire genre, belongs on a certain platform is an opinion, not fact.

Just because specific games or genres began on one platform does not mean they belong to that platform only.

You may prefer FPS games on a PC but your platform preference doesn't create an attachment that must be followed by others.

I prefer many games on PC but there's no way I would actually go around saying "game x" or "genre y" were first released on PC so they can only be released on PC in the future.

I agree, I want all these bad boy games on PC because mine can handle it. But coders are evil and want the easy way out.

Look at almost any game ported from a console to PC. It's crap. Look at a game specifically designed for PC and ported to console it's crap...

It's sad but thats life. There are anyway enough games for PC..

My collection that I never play:

Swat 4 + Expansion
FEAR + Expansion
BF2 + Special Forces
BF 2142 Demo
Test Drive Unlimited w/ Wheel
Flight Simulator X w/ Wheel
GTA SA
Roller Coaster Tycoon
Spiderman 3
Americas Army
Stalker

I may have more, I play some but there are so many I just don't get around to it.

For Wii I have Zelda, wii sports and wario ware which is plenty.

Xbox is INSANE:
Hitman 2
Trival Pursuit
DeusEx Invisible War
ESPN NFL 2K5
GTA SA
Larry Leasuire suit
Spiderman 2
Ghost Recon 2
Blinx The Time Sweeper
007 Everything or Nothing
Enter the Matrix
EA NBA
Max Payne 2
SRS
Mercinaries

and my xBox isn't even plugged in..

Anyway my point for listing my games besides having a list if I want to sell any is there are SO many games for just PC or just a console that you don't need that one game.

For instance Gears of War for 360 there are so many war games on PC it's not needed.
Zelda for Wii, there are so many RPG's for other consoles and PC is it really needed?

I'd still rather they delay the PC launch than not releasing it for PC at all. I don't blame GRAW2, at least it's not a poorly coded port but rather has an engine of its own as for the PC version.

I think it is VERY fair that Crysis isn't gonna come out on consoles, even when Cry Engine 2 will, it certainly won't be the 100% kickass Crysis.

it is just an opinion i was formulating. i know it will never happen that every FPs will be released on the PC.
