Trolling is so fun. I really miss that. Also i like the social aspect, more games need good,reliable in game chat so people can meet. Seriously how do you make friends with someone on pc? It's not like they will answer back

thats odd I have no problem finding people to f with on pc and or talk to biggrin.gif

Homefront is terrible.

But snipers are a good class to play. Don't be "that guy" and complain about them. Just get around the annoying campers, but also realise that some games and game modes call for campers.

I think you have more control with the keyboard/nouse set up over the thumbsticks on a controller, therefore, it's easier for people to snipe because they have a better aim.

That's just what I think, I've stopped playing games now because I don't have fun with them. Kind of sad, really ;(

This.

Console players tend to have worse aim then PC players, therefore if you rush out in a PC FPS you're going to get taken down very quickly. Its not camping, its being careful and not running around like a headless chicken, spraying and praying.

Console games are terrible for people camping, mainly because they cant aim/play the game well so they find a sneaky hiding spot and stay there all game. If you try that in a PC FPS game, you might get away with it for maybe 2-3 minutes, after a while someone will find you and make you their *****.

If the game didn't score/give you points on KDR then there probably wouldn't be as many snipers.

I just wish some games would limit sniper classes available. Like BC2 for example, half the time on Rush one team is overloaded with them and you only have a handful of guys trying to do the objectives and the rest just getting kills.

Not in my experience, sometimes you luck out and get a very small map where you're forced to use another weapon

Nope, Cod is FULL of them, everywhere. And BC2 has their fair share as well, not as many as cod though. Play Halo, not many in there smile.gif

I think the reason is:

Snipers are generally 1-hit kills, but have a slow rate of fire - therefore, if people are good enough to hit you on the first shot, they're at an advantage using a sniper because there's a higher chance you'll die. You have more control over aiming with a mouse and keyboard than with control sticks... so it's natural to expect more snipers on PC FPS than in console games!

And for the record, yeah it's pretty annoying. I'm a fan of games that either limit the number of snipers per team (like TF2) or games with vehicles where you can't JUST snipe because it's not effective.

Specifically homefront... there are so many snipers... it's hard not to walk in open field and not get immediately shot down from 2 miles away. I'm just not used to the amount of sniping and camping there is.

There is definitely less rushing, and for some reason it's just not as exciting or fun. There is also way less talking in games as opposed to the 360 or even the ps3.

umm try not running out into the open and making yourself an easy target...

You'll find PC gamers to be quieter in-game because they're generally speaking to buddies or clan mates using Vent or Teamspeak rather than in-game voice chat. Almost in every game in-game voice chat is absolute rubbish and a waste to time, except for giving other people headaches of course....
