Eight reasons to hate PC gamers - Page 5

post #41 of 307
Horrible article.

1) Generalisation. Console Gamers can be elitists too.

2) It is a sport, just not a traditional one. You can win, you play with a team, you train your skills. How is it not a sport? I'm pretty sure people do e-sports with consoles as well.

3) Please, spare me! Pirates come in all shapes and sizes. With the popularity of Steam and their good deals, people have one less reason to pirate. Console gamers get charged out the wazoo for games. People pirate console games too. And sell them. Not all of them but some.

4) What drivel. Generalisations, accusations and attacks of a certain group of people. People of all shapes and sizes play video games. Console gamers can have BO issues, play fight sims and RPG's with orcs, and live in their tissue strewn basement.

5) Maybe if you buy an alienware. We are enthusiasts. We build our own systems. We tweak, we modify, we create, we discuss, we compare. Console gamers can be graphics whores too. Go play half life, the original. If you could play that again on a new game engine, with new graphics, new sounds, would you? Of course you would. It's called Black Mesa Source, and it's going to free, as it is a mod. Play Star Wars KOTOR, Jedi Knights Academy, Grand Theft Auto, and so on.

6) Sterotypical and not fact or truth. The Origin Genesis is an overpriced piece of electronics. Moreover it has your beloved Xbox 360 in it as well. This is a flawed argument. The parts you have linked are not mainstream and are absolutely highest pirce parts. Please look up the Radeon 5770, GeForce GTS 450, and so on. They are mid range cards ranging from $100-$200. You can have an AMD Athlon II quadcore processor for $99. A 4GB kit of RAM for $60. A decent powersupply for $80. And so on.

7) Not every PC gamer plays MMO's. A short and unthoughtful attack, with absolutely no base or fact.

8) We get upset, because games become dumbed down, stripped out in order fit your consoles. They take features meant to be in the original game and sell it as DLC. Call of Duty map packs, Mafia 2 DLC, GTA Episodes, Just Cause 2, Medal of Honour. Notice that all these titles are multi platform. Most have mediocre graphics and an average story, or good graphics and a less than average story. That does not make them bad games.

What makes them bad games are the bloated ports (GTA IV, MOH) with average graphics, mediocre settings tweaking, lack of anti aliasing and so on. One size does not fit all. PC's vary in specs, therefore require tweaking options for low, medium, and high end computers. Consoles are a static hardware platform, where one size fits all.

This article is a senseless attack on a demographic of gamers. I am a PC Gamer myself, as you may have noticed. I am not a fanboy. I made a choice on what platform I play my games on. We are all gamers, regardless of platform. We enjoy good games with good graphics. We like to play the classics every now and then. We are enthusiastic about our choice of platform.

What you have written is full of spite, hate, and hypocrisy. You should be ashamed. All this article will do is start flame wars across the internet.

I'm gunna post that on the article. What trash.

This is pretty true, like look at this forum for example. Lots of pretty big whack jobs that have some sort of nerdy emotional freak every time a certain company's name is typed. Tweaking more than gaming? Check. Pirating... PLENTY of people whether they admit it or not. Elitists, yeah. Blah blah blah high settings, 2560x1600, PhysX blah blah. It doesn't go for everybody but lots of it is pretty true. More money than sense? Don't even need to touch on that.

Who cares though? Its all good, I'd be pissed too if I had to play games on a neutered antique.

Edit* Its also pretty funny how everyone is so offended by just a poke fun kind of article. What a travesty, they should come back with a big ole formal apology, cookies and a hug for all you guys.

I used to be a PSX fanboy with GT1+2 and MGS1, also MegaManX until the time I came around Half Life...That game changed me forever lol.

As far as that article is concerned, Im just gonna leave it alone. I mean seriously? thats like a hit and run article, just disapointed its in PC World.

I did laugh at the OCing one, but of course we always hope to obtain more than just a few fps
