PC's and consoles have their places I still play San Andreas on the original Xbox that's built like a tank. My PC isn't anywhere near top of the line, I built it for around $1,000, which isn't much. I've seen people spend more then that going from the 250Gb Elite to the 4Gb Slim. Because they "needed" it. I won't upgrade for a long time. Consoles add up fast; PC's add up fast.

Halo, Call of Duty series (as of mw2), RDR, Demon's Souls, SSF4, Tekken 6, inFAMOUS, God of War Series, Uncharted Series, Little Big Planet, Skate Series, Sports Series (NHL, Madden, NBA), Killzone Series, SOCOM Series, Gran Turismo 5 to name a few.

All games that are generally accepted to play better on consoles (or are ONLY on consoles)... Limiting yourself to PC is missing out. You can't call yourself a "TRUE GAMER HURRRDURRR" by limiting yourself to one console because of bias.

Call of duty is a FPS... The true computer game.


And all of the other games you've named are absoultely terrible.

Bias at its finest folks. This man has clearly never played any of the games listed.

Oh how sorry I feel, poor guy is missing out on the other half of gaming!

Oh well.. enjoy your absoultely bitter, pointless arguing. I'll be enjoying my games!

Ummm I have had a PS3 (sold it last week) and and 2 xbox 360's.


I had gamefly, so I played all of the games you've listed.

So how you can say Im biased after owning and playing all the games you've listed, plus a ton more is just ignorance.

Both of you have your opinions. If he hates ALL of those games (highly unbelievable but whatever) than he hates them! Though how can you hate God of War and uncharted?

Ive got a pc and an xbox, ide say that ive met alot nicer people on pc they all seem to have the same idea of what gaming it .. to have fun. Also i mean you can get permantly banned from going on your xbox? seems abit redicluos to me. However one thing i would like to see is if that all pc games were hosted and controlled by someone like steam that way its much easyer to game with friends. Only reason that i even go on xbox is to have a quick game of zombies with my mates.

Console gaming is simply more accessible. Sort of the same way we have to cater to the lowest common denominator. "Caution Hot!" printed on coffee cups is a clear example of this.

God of war: destroy everything and solve mazes.


Uncharted: Most cliche game ever... The first mission on the second one is so boring. Everything bad happens to the guy, it's like, oh I wonder if this bar will break if I jump to it, oh yup it did, time to shimmy over to the next one. Oh man the door fell off quick grab something. Oh I finally got to the top of the train BUT OH WAIT! ITS FALLING RUUUUUUUUUUN...


and the snow monsters? lol seriously?
