The PC version of MW3 is the best.

This topic is locked from further discussion.

#1 Edited by SwaggervilleAoE (15 posts) -

Obvious reasons:

-Better graphics

-Higher resolutions

-More precise controls

-More mature player base (less trolling and useless chatter)

Reasons you may not know about:

-Multi-monitor support (Nvidia Surround, Eyefinity)

-Mods (user-created content, maps, missions, new game modes, etc)

-Quicker integration between other apps (such as YouTube, Facebook, official forums, etc)

Reasons why the other versions of MW3 are popular:

-Quick, dirty, and cheap.

-Just like your mothers.

You used the phrase "mature player base" in reference to a CoD game...

#3 Posted by MikkaQ (10294 posts) -

Okay?

#4 Posted by SwaggervilleAoE (15 posts) -

@FreakAche:

"More mature."

@XII_Sniper:

@SwaggervilleAoE: Hold the press we have a Mothafuckin Genius here!!!!

You are trolling yourself right?

I mean if you're going to troll it usually helps if you pic a topic that upsets people or at least one someone gives a shit about.

Mature and CoD. Don't know, its like saying Compelling Story and Twilight Saga in the same sentence....

#7 Posted by SwaggervilleAoE (15 posts) -

@Manatassi:

I'm guessing everything is trolling to you?

No one wants to challenge the Nvidia Surround/Eyefinity topic? Winning.

i will never understand why people create new accounts just to post shit threads like this.

are you bored?

i think forums in general should stop new accounts posting threads. would cut down on the shit thats for sure

The PC version of a FPS is best? You're shittin' me. Color me impressed.

#10 Posted by DeF (4894 posts) -

Isn't this basically true for any PC game? This thread seems pointless to me ...

If you feel like posting something new, maybe get a little more creative?!

COD sucks on the PC. BF3 sucks on the console.
 
Also, possibly the least original thread ever.

It's the same game, but with Mouse/Keyboard. Which makes it the brest version.

Also the best part of COD is the ability to automatically mute other players.

Wait a second... a multiplat fps game that has a PC version better than a console? BULLSHIT!

OT: I thought the pc versions of cod were pretty bad...

I tried playing COD4 on PC and it was a miserable experience. It was the first time in my life that I felt a particular FPS was better on the console.

You say that, but every game I've played so far ends with a 'gg' from nearly all involved.

You get complaints of noobs etc. when one team demolishes another but, surprisingly, most people have been super friendly so far. Although, I do stick to the more objective based modes (mainly Team Defender right now) which may appeal to a different crowd of players than your usual Team Deathmatch assholes.

This thread is pointless in so many ways but I would like to reiterate how much nicer people have been on the PC version so far.

Thanks for creating a lit pointing out obvious things.

I don't agree with TC. Better resolution isn't a good thing ; it just makes thing SO clean that you actually see that it's an ugly ass game even more. Remember, it runs on a modified Quake 3 engine.

-More mature player base (less trolling and useless chatter)

And more hacking and hate speach

That's kind of how I feel about Skyrim. Everyone is pissing themselves over how "great" it looks, but with everything cranked up to the highest setting and at 2560x1600, I see a lot of bland textures and a lot of really blocky and straight objects that should be more refined and softer. Not an ugly game, but a lot of ugliness really pokes through.

I can't really put my finger on what it was. It just didn't feel "right". Every server I played on felt like a super fast paced (faster than console, even) rush to the death. Everyone seemed to be killed almost the instant they spawned and shit was just too fast and too random. I can only assume it's because every server tried to jam 16, 24, 32 (or up to 48, I think?) players on maps that were built for up to a dozen players. At any rate, I've settled on "COD is for console" ever since. I play CS, BF, RO and everything else on PC. Always have. That's where they're optimal. COD just . . . feels so off on there.

You're using the wrong color you troll.

#25 Posted by valrog (3671 posts) -

Modern Warfare 3 has mods? What is this?

#26 Posted by roc_553 (209 posts) -

Clearly someone who ends an argumentative post with an insult to his audience's mothers would be able to recognize a "more mature" community.

#27 Posted by Vinny_Says (5709 posts) -

Man people on the internet sure love confrontation. Because no other game rivals the massive sales of MW3 we must now fight about which VERSION is best?

Change your color before posting your fascist PC propaganda, we won't respect you any more than we do but at least you won't look stupid when posting pointless threads.

#28 Posted by amir90 (2156 posts) -

I tried it, why have they removed the ability to increase field of view?

Are they trying to troll us?

That alone, makes MW3, a total meh for me.

Bullshit. It's not just a resolution bump, but a bump in textures and lighting also. I've seen the console version and at least in terms of the single player it looks like muddy crap compared to the PC version.
