Eight reasons to hate PC gamers - Page 21

post #201 of 307
Truth is if console gamers could download game torrents and play them they would do it too.

And of course pc gamers are elitist, it's simply a superior platform.

My buddies bug me to get a ps3, its a great console with great exclusives. But its got inferior controls, graphics, games are waaay more expensive.

I reject the statement that pc gaming is too expensive. New games on console are like 70 bucks, its ridiculous. You can usually find these games for ridiculous low prices on steam sales in a couple months.

You could put together a capable gaming pc for $400.

Although funny it's pretty far from accurate

#8 They're elitists
The only 1 that's true and only applies to pc gamers

#7 E sports
They have tournaments for console games too...

#6 They're filthy pirates
You can pirate console games too....
It's harder and requires half a brain but it can be done none the less

#5 They make the rest of us look like nerds
I think both camps do this

#4 They're shameless graphics fanatics
It called being in control. and there's quite a few people who don't oc
I would know i built their system for them

#3 They have more money than sense
people buying a $600 blu ray player at launch have more money than sense

#2 MMORPGs
FFXI on console comes to mind and fantasy star online on the dreamcast amongst others

#1 They're always complaining
meh it depends who you talk to. I happen to not talk to a lot of complainers

With that said i own a 360 and a pc. I don't see why pc gamers and console gamers would not get along. We're all gamers. Some more casual than others but still gamers

i look down on console gamers because they are basically the reason NPCS have Exclamation points over their heads and there is always an X and arrow telling you where to go in a game. If they dont do that, they make it so that there is only one path to go through in the game.

Every developer dumbs their games down anymore. Why cant they assume or treat the player like they are intelligent or would like to have a challenge.

and mirror's edge when everything you can interact with glows red. I'm so glad they included an option to disable that...

So, I own a PS3, 360, and a PC. What do I game on 98% of the time? My PC. What's the biggest reason why? Apart from the far superior graphics, it's because I friggin BUILT IT.

I just find it a lot more fun to game on something that I chose the parts for, I built, and I overclocked.

I bought the consoles hoping to be able to get into them (well, the PS3 was a gift and I asked for it because of the great Blu-Ray player), but the reality turned out to be ... I just can't get into gaming on 'em. It's just so much more fun to be playing on a machine that's my own creation.

Stupid article is stupid.

Maybe it's because these players no longer know how to properly use the word 'anymore' anymore

Sorry, just a pet peeve of mine.

I agree with games being dumb down. Today's insanity mode is yesterdays standard.

And then noobs cry when they get destroyed in multi-player.
