Eight reasons to hate PC gamers - Page 19

post #181 of 307
What they neglect to mention is that every console owner also owns a PC...They just prefer to pay $800 for an underpowered name brand then use their brain and put and $800 gaming monster together.
All through that slide show I could hear the sound of someone holding their butt cheeks together while crying, that author was hurt...deeply and emotionally by some PC gamers.

The article actually holds some truths though, but like stated they can also be applied to console gamers:

#8: They're elitists

So are console users. Pc users are adamant their machines are the best, and so are console users. Luckily there are people like me on both sides of the argument that can give pro's and con's to both platforms.

#7: 'E-Sports'

Not true. Darts and snooker are sports and they contain nothing in regards to athletics. In fact i would say darts is about as taxing as computer gaming, if not less. Yet they are considered sports. Sports does not equal athletics.

#6: They're filthy pirates

Completely agree. However, the only reason piracy is so big is because piracy programs are free to implement. It costs nothing to pirate a game on the PC. Make no mistake about it, if you didn't have to pay to chip your PS3/360, piracy would be just as big.

#5: They make the rest of us look like nerds

How can a smaller market control the perception of a bigger market? This is complete and utter none sense.

#4: They're shameless graphics fanatics

Some race car drivers spend more time tinkering under the hood than racing. Does that make them any less of a racer?

#3: They have more money than sense

I'm pretty sure I've seen a gold plated Xbox 360 before. This statement can be applied to anything.

#2:MMORPGs

The biggest grossing game in the world is WoW IIRC, and you're saying it's a negative? Also I'm pretty sure console users play Black Ops just as much if not more than PC users. This statement is so hard to prove true/false that it isn't worth debating.

#1: They're always complaining

I hate this about PC gamers too. Yet now we have an argument on our side, 'BC2: Vietnam' you heard me, VIETNAM. You know, that game where DICE had to unlock a map because the console gamers started QQ'ing.

I use the term consumer to denote those who buy the product and don't investigate the workings of it, the industry, or the general supply side of the market. Technically I am a consumer because I don't make the products, but would put many people in this thread under the enthusiast category, much like audiophiles aren't exactly consumers. In the modern era there is a difference between informed/invested and complacent consumers.

this made me lolz...I know more console gamers that pirate than any pc gamers. One console gamer friend in fact only pirates pc games but pays for a majority of his console games and really...we are comparing the ASUS lambo, Origin Genesis, and the GPU no one purchases..except for uneducated, rich gamers..to consoles? Journalism is dead, long live the bloggers and herp derps trying to grab attention
