You might think I might be biased on this subject, but in no means am I irrational. PC elitists are those who FuNkDrSpOt has clearly stated.
PC elitists on the other hand fixate themselves, as FuNkDrSpOt as depicted, on these minor contexts that give them some sort of entitlement to allow them to feel that they are better then anyone else on the street. The lack of DX11 is a disappointment, but added graphical features to an already great looking game (which indeed looks better then ANY dx11 title on the market) does not in any means mean the game is garbage. Let alone, it having a similar play style to MW does not make it a bad game.
The disgust in MW arises from the title. It is not a classic CoD game. Many classic PC gamers don't feel that MW, MW2, CoD WaW, and Black Ops should hold the CoD name. The true CoD series was 1 and 2. This feeling spread to elitists who were not big PC gamers of that era, and, as you describe, ignorant or ill-informed gamers. MW itself is not a horrible
game, but due to past issues with its naming just provoked the further development of hate for the game and its players. First it was Halo. It got popular and its player based labelled it as a "Pro Game" which did not reflect anything of what the game really was. Due to the link of Crysis2 and CoD just has these elitists continue to build on the regret for the related game rather then the game itself. This thinking is irrational, especially when these elitists make bloated claims of lacking DX11 to make their "superior" epeen larger then the others. PC gaming is not about superiority, although it being platform of competitive and gaming in general choice as the input of mouse and keyboard greatly exceeds the consoler, it is about gaming and enjoying the game that is unique in itself. In a sense CoD is ruining this, and it is, as it makes gaming a cash cow rather then an experience.
I complain over similar things; being that many games that share the title of many classics do not hold up to their name. It is a big disappointment of the decline of many great titles because they decided to take innovation and "no limitations" and sweep it under the rug. Their are some good games, regardless of their similarities to other games, that do have enough content that allows them to distinguished from other games. Calling Crysis 2 a CoD variant is like calling DoD a CoD variant. They play similar, they have similar kits, but there is enough differences in play style that make them noticeably different games. Just like CnC and SC.
We need PC gaming.
