@#5
There are plenty of "less than charismatic" people who play consoles too.

@#4
Those are called benchmarkers. Don't lump them with gamers.

@#3
Hey, lets pay Geek Squad over a hundred bucks to install my PS3! >_>
Service exist to feed demand. Obviously there is some demand for this scam service

Anything I didn't respond to, I have a neutral view of.

Reasons to hate PC gamers #6: They're filthy pirates

PC gamers seem to think they have a God-given right to illegally download computer games for free.
No. Just no. Not all PC gamers are pirates, and there's plenty of xBox pirates. If anything I'd say piracy is easier on the 360 than the PC because 360 pirates need not worry about a new form of DRM popping up.


Quote:
This is stealing; plain and simple
Again, no. It is illegal. But it isn't stealing. Stealing involves taking an original. Piracy merely makes a copy of that original, it never actually takes it.


Quote:
-- and it's affecting the industry in a big way.
Valve is doing just fine. So is EA, Ubisoft, Bethesda, Bioware, 2K, Rockstar, just about every big player in the game. Indie devs have it made, too, with Steam. They're flourishing. If that's an industry being affected in a big way then let's keep right on torrenting!




Quote:
When queried about its draconian DRM policies, Ubisoft threw the issue back at PC gamers' faces, and rightfully so: "Are we frustrated by the PC market? I think everyone is. In the end it all comes back to one single truth: piracy is a big, huge, hairy problem. It's a market that suffered a lot because of piracy, and we're all just trying to figure out what we think is the best way to deal with it." In other words, pay for your games, you scroungers.
You're believing the QQing from one of the second-rate big names? Try asking Valve or Bethesda.


Quote:
PC gamers don't really care about gameplay. They’re more interested in teasing a few extra frames per second out of their ridiculously overpriced ‘gaming rig.’ When you spend more time fiddling around in BIOS than actually playing, it's time to face facts: you're no longer a gamer.
I speak for a fair many PC gamers when I say we don't give two -beep-s about the god damned graphics if the game is good! I know I do because Fallout: New Vegas has graphics that would make 2004 embarrassed, and yet it sold into the millions. PC gamers couldn't get enough of it! Sure there's a few bad apples that are graphics whores but real PC gamers don't take them seriously anyways.


Quote:

So, you want to get into PC gaming huh? The first thing to do is grab an Origin Genesis gaming PC: with an RRP of $10,893, it's an absolute steal! Or maybe you just want to upgrade your PC's graphic card to something a bit meatier? The Asus R.O.G MARS is going cheap at just $1999! Perhaps portable gaming is more your bag? If so, the ASUS Lamborghini VX5 can be yours for just $3499! Bargains, all three of 'em!
Alternatively, you could buy a Nintendo Wii, a PlayStation 3, an Xbox 360 and a Nintendo DSi XL for a fraction of the price. But who'd want to go and do something stupid like that?
I would like to show you morons Boot to the Head. It costs about as much as any of those consoles you listed, yet it can play every PC game on the market at 1600x1200. It won't max them out, but it will run them at a playable framerate.

Reasons to hate PC gamers #2:MMORPGs

When your parents told you to get out of the house more, I don't think this is what they had in mind.
MMORPG players are a small chunk of PC gamers. The classic WoW nerd is an even smaller chunk of that population. This is just a load of bollocks.


Quote:

Reasons to hate PC gamers #1: They're always complaining

The average PC gamer is a moaning, winging waste of space who never runs out of things to complain about.
Again you're taking a rather noisy, annoying and boisterous minority and assuming it's all of us. We don't complain just for the sake of complaining and we sure as hell ain't wastes of space. If you don't like your games good then that's fine, but some of us want to criticize stupid decisions developers make.




Quote:
Whenever a feature is cut from a game, or it doesn't live up to expectations, the PC gaming fraternity goes on a hysterical nerd-fueled rampage, with scores of online petitions, irate death threats and organised boycotts clogging the Internet.
Okay. Scenario: You buy a Ford F150. The engine only has three working cylinders, it's stuck in reverse, and it won't run on more than three streets because Ford decided it's too likely to get stolen anywhere else. Would you stick your thumb in your mouth and pretend all is kosher?


Hell no. You'd have that piece of junk towed right back to the dealer and order them to fix it or give you your money back!


It's no different when we yell at a dev for cutting a feature or when the game drops a big one on our keyboard.


Quote:
They make John McEnroe’s famed dummy-spits look like articulate debates.
Is it any wonder that games publishers are abandoning the PC market in droves?
I could have sworn it's because Microsoft and Sony offer them boatloads of cash in exchange for exclusives. But hey, I guess someone with some common sense and free though must be wrong, eh?


Quote:
It’s simply not worth the effort of releasing a PC game these days – even if it’s perfect, you guys will find something to nitpick.
If it's perfect we'll praise it for the god-game it is. Personally, I'd love to see a game that comes out and doesn't need any nitpicking. I love New Vegas to death but the bugginess is appalling. Doesn't mean I don't appreciate it, doesn't mean I feel the 49.99 I dropped on the pre-order was a waste, but dammit I'd like to be able to play for more than two hours in a row!




Quote:
Presumably, you won’t be happy until the entire games industry has washed its hands of you. That day can't come soon enough.
We'd be happy if we simply got a game that worked and was original. That's all we ask. If that's too much, then perhaps you need to pack your computer up and write the rest of your articles on a typewriter.

Ironically this is just another fanboy. You see no one on this planet can actually give an unbiased reason why PCs or Consoles suck. Because both items are GOOD! Both items have the ups and their downs that define them and I have yet to see a guy that doesn't at all put opinion into a review on whether not consoles or PC Gamers suck.
