this is a larger issue than just PC gaming. It's the inability for people to realize that someone is simply better than them at something. They can't grasp that they're simply not that good, and that someone else is much much better.

as stated above. I can jump into CS @ 240FPS in 1440p (so stupidly fast frames + more view) and i'll still get schooled. Why? Cuz I'm bad. I haven't been into FPS in over a decade. The hardware may help a bit, but after a certain point, which isn't all that high in cost, its 99.99% skill.

R.I.P. Zawarudo, may you OC angels' wings in heaven.
If something appears too good to be true, it probably is.

if not, then you'll have the disparities you complain about above... while they exist, most of the time the person killing you is just better than you.
I don't really get into those kind of games, not because I suck at them though I'm sure I would.. it just don't see it as a competition of pure skill. The hardware arms race is too big of a factor.

Sure TVs have a range of response times but it a more even playing field, and anyone playing competitively would likely have a good TV.

There will for sure a lot of cases where the same game comes out on PS4 and PS5. Maybe they have separate servers for ppl playing at 30 vs 60hz, or maybe they get 60hz on both consoles with the PS4 have way lower graphics. Time will tell.

i7 7700kK @4.2ghz

lol color me agreeable with ya. Pc's can barely do 8k, and not well at all. No way Sony is, unless.....unless they mean 8k, at 2 FPS. Then ok, maybe so. Supersampled at 8k, checkboarding, lol.

All of 2021 is CDPRJKTRED for me, specially since we're likely getting Ceri's story via Witcher 4. Getting tired of Cyberpunking? Go horseback riding as Ceri thru Tameria instead

Plus nowadays there aren't even that many hard core games to begin with as most games have been dumbed down to promote sales to casuals.

Never bought a console, don't see why now I should Sony, really don't. You got nothing to offer other than money to developers to release certain titles only for your platform aka anti customer practices.
I couldn't disagree with the last statement more. I had been a Nintendo exclusive guy up until I built a PC in 2010, then it was between that and Nintendo Exclusives. I just got my first non-nintendo console ever when I got the Read Dead 2 PS4 Pro. If you haven't played that, God of War, Horizon Zero Dawn, Spider Man, Uncharted, and The Last of Us among others, you are really missing out and it's hard to give creedence to that statement until you at least try a couple of them. Maybe borrow someone's PS4 for a week or a month.
