qft.


Battlefield 2, for example. WoW, for example. WarCraft III, for example. Guild Wars, for example. Morrowind, for example.

And the sequels of the games above are the games with more expectation upon them. Ever.

No, that's the point. The elitists don't need to get of any horses. They're quite within their rights to be there.

PC Gaming is THE site for gaming. Consoles are lesser machines capable of much less.

If more attention was paid to a PC version it would make PC gamers much happier, and happier people are loose with their wallets.

Here's my deal: Develop a game, release on PC FIRST, then work on getting it dumbed down and onto consoles. Consoler gamers will either feel pissed off or twice as excited by the PC gaming communities rants or raves. Eitherway is tough. I'm absolutely sick of seeing people raving about console games that should have been better on the PC. For instance, Crysis 2 absolutely sucks. I refuse to buy or play it on principal. Whereas all the console gamers on my FB are raving mightily about Crysis 2 and talking about how good it is and all I can think is "you stupid mofos, you never even appreciated the first! No-one was interested in playing Crysis on my PC, but oops, here it is on the console and you're all like "THIS IS THE BEST GAM EVAH" ARrrgh!"

The games are better before they're ever ported to Console. Unfortunately some genius at these companies decided to chuck the PC controls and dumb it all down for console use. Not to mention the graphics although sort of intense on Console would just fall on its collective face compared to most any GPU on the market.

I think Gamers need to march on these guys and show them we mean business. Start blogging about their egregious lapse in judgement. After all how are games built? On a 360? A PS3? A Wi? I don't F'N think so.

All these companies are after right now is a quick buck with as little support as they have to put into their product.This is what happens when Developers work hand in hand with a certain Graphics Card company who shall remain nameless...

Glad to see that the abomination that is GFWL made that list.
post #48 of 126
I'm honestly tired of exclusives in general.

There's one thing I doubt the pc will be doing any time soon and that's disappearing.

If i want to play a old console exclusive 10 years from now? well you won't be able to cause all the 360's will be red ringed. I think we might get to the point where they extend these systems so much even ps3's and the new 360's(jaspers? not sure) will start to croak from old age.

I don't like sony as a company the only reason bluray took off is because they paid off movie studios. So a man can dream they will just fail and crash and burn or something. $1000 ps4 maybe? would probably die before the fanboys could save up but apples still around so who knows.

WOW there were no remap controls in dead space 2? didn't know that cause i haven't played it but that's amazing. We surely make them enough money to implement a few configs. It's always about money shove it out the door kind of things. I think first and foremost games should be fun that's probably the only actual requirement. I mean spend 3 or so years on a game, they can't go in and change a few things around? can't a intern do this?

I think i like that rebecca black friday song more than i like GFWL.

I find xbox360 funny because Microsoft owns it and i know they want there own little world for gaming there. If they truly want the separation of gaming I see pretty much no reason to still be using windows. Probably the only reason they still throw us a taste.

DLC is fun when it's actually after the fact. Good DLC can bring new life to a game. It gets crazy with the nickel and dime stuff tho, I'm not buying a simple color change or outfit even if it's a dollar. I'm still waiting on a blank game probably just be a empty room to fill the room you have to buy DLC to actually play the game you have to purchase modes. I better not give them any ideas tho.

^ They didn't pay off any movie studios. Blu-Ray was the more superior product over HD-DVD and it won accordingly. I remember arguing the toss with some n00b on a random forum who said HD-DVD was better and so was the Xbox (...and would you believe it he owned an xbox 360 and hated the PS3? Hmm any bias detected?). I kept posting tech specs and pointing out that as with anything, I'll put my weight behind the more advanced technology to win. Which, Blu-Ray was standardised and I won the debate.

It also helps if you OWN some movie studios, as Sony do.

Nope. Just plain ol' fail in there. People blaming consoles for the bad ports don't really understand the full situation. It's entirely the developers fault if a PC port is bad or lacking features, regardless of the consoles. They could have made it better, but they didn't.
