Love the effort you put in this thread. 1 sentence and a link!

These are mostly wrong. Except the second one. That's right. That's absolutely right. Also, why is it right at this point in time >:|?

That article is just as dumb as the one that claimed that console graphics were better

Agreed. He could have at least reposted the 5 reasons, but i guess that would actually involve starting a discussion about the topic, and not a discussions about the discussion of the topic.
#10 Posted by DarkShaper (1347 posts) -

I don't know why but I just read it, who actually claims that console games don't get patched much and that that it a good thing?

The author of that list has clearly never played videogames on a PC, two of his points are related to not being able to use a controller and sit on a couch while playing PC games. He also brings up piracy and doesn't even mention Steam. His ignorance astounds me.

This thread maybe would have cause tension in 1999, but it's irrelevant these days.

I don't think he's that dumb, feigned ignorance obviously leads to more successful trolling

Way to squander your first post.

@Dany: I giggled. Nay, I chuckled. Nay, laughed and chortled even!

@Tan: If it's true, then why am I so much more precise and quick with a mouse and KB than a couple of analog sticks...?

Also, I hate PC gamers who hunch like that. So silly, recline man!

#23 Posted by Tim_the_Corsair (3065 posts) -

Holding this article up as an example of console superiority is the equivalent of holding up Cletus the Slack-jawed Yokel as an example of white supremacy.

No man, why would you want to game on a keyboard? They're obviously only meant for typing. I mean, look at them.

@DystopiaX: He has either started a site for the express purposes of trolling or is genuinely this idiotic. Either way I'd say he's wasted his money. That's what I get for taking anything linked from N4G seriously though I guess.

The advantages and disadvantages of each platform are subjective. What you want from a gaming system decides which you buy 
 Looking at the five reasons: 
 
1. "No need for upgrades" => Do you want an old outdated machine with tired recycled technology? Then yes, this reason makes sense to you. I want real gaming, where the experience doesn't lack in the graphical and audio department, therefore i choose the PC. 
2. "No M+KB" => Do you want to not play RTS games and to do your second best in FPS games? Sure, you don't need M+KB. I, however, want fast precise mice rather than a slow robotic analog stick. I also wanna play complex games that demand over 30 buttons rather than 10-15 .. And hey, my PC can use a controller if I wanted. It can use a wii mote. and a racing wheel... 
3. Not a legit reason: Just yesterday i maxed out Stalker SoC Complete 09 mod and played using M+KB for 3 hours while lying on my couch! We can connect our PCs to TVs, can you connect your console to a monitor? 
4. You got me there.. Fileshare is doing a lot of damage to the platform. But Steam is still extremely popular, millions of sales on the PC, and just how is this a reason to not buy a PC? We still get tons of exclusives 
5. We get patches and updates all the time. The game in the picture was re-released and fully patched.

To OP, don't ever post anything bad about a PC. Because PC's are superior at everything, and if you play on consoles you are not a true gamer.

Yeah, it's like that dude was like "I don't like getting faster bug fixes and occasionally free content, I like to pay for all my shit!"

#29 Posted by iam3green (14390 posts) -

lol at saying the console games are finished. games come pre-par to what they should be sometimes when they come out. sometimes there are day one patches. i haven't updated my computer for a couple of years and they play games great. it's a pretty crappy one also.

The reason I am still entertained by flame bait is because, if presented well, it is almost completely undetectable.
 
It's a classy way to troll.

I'm a console gamer with no plans to change, and even I can see that this is a legitimately bad thread.
#33 Posted by PeasantAbuse (5138 posts) -

I don't get the point of these lists.  If someone wants to play on a PC let them.  If they don't, that's fine too.  
 
 I do both.

#34 Posted by Bribo (608 posts) -

Oh, second-hand trolling! I don't think I've seen that before. But any list on the subject of this quandry should only contain 2 points:
 
1. Your PC is old and can't run games (which may not be true).
 
2. Publisher's hate PCs and will do everything in their power to make your experience as unpleasant as possible.

The only reason that article was make was to make people get angry and artificially inflate the traffic to that site.  This thread will only make people upset as well.  Dumb shit leads to more dumb shit.  It's the nature of the internet I guess.

That. Also, it wouldn't surprise me if the op was the author of the original "article", fuck it - blogpost; and was looking for more clicks considering how it's his first post.

Expertgamingnews.co.nr

Seems legit to me, guys.

Should go read some of the other "top 5" lists on that site they're pretty much the same brand of stupid flamebaiting.

Most disappointing game this generation? Modern Warfare 2

Top 4 reasons Uncharted 3 is better looking than Gears 3. Hell yeah, legit content.

#41 Posted by PSNgamesun (412 posts) -

I think that the guy who wrote the article puts a bad name on console gamers I don't want closed minded people defending me, I like pc games ( wow,Starcraft,BF,diablo) but I was brought up with console always felt comfortable with console games like Mario, Zelda,RE series each gaming system console and pc have there advantage but to me console games have have more games and more games that have lasted the test of time that's just me tho if it were up to me just buy every system and a high end computer THE TRUTH

"Gaming is an expensive hobby, just ask any PS3 owner (zing)."

Wait, what? That would have made sense years ago, but the PS3 is pretty damn affordable now.

Also, the rest of the article is pretty shitty as well.

#44 Posted by ryanwho (12082 posts) -

Pretty sure this is advertising, you're making people give that site clicks. Its worse than youtube spam.

#45 Posted by TheFreeMan (2712 posts) -

whenever anybody talks about anything that has to do with videogames that isn't about a videogame it doesn't seem to work very well.

I guess I should have put that I was being sarcastic. lol. I just think its funny that PC gamer's tear down console players but if you say anything remotely bad about PC's there is a shit storm lol.

Honestly, who cares what people play on, I enjoy both console and PC games. I think neither one is superior, because it does not matter to me which one is.

You care. You care a lot. You're part of the problem.
#48 Edited by Jeust (10822 posts) -

Not a great article.  It doesn't talk about the issue I have with PC games: the needed hassle to get the game going, that ranges from a simple install, to patching, tweaking, coding, rebooting, changing the bios, and sometimes there isn't a way of making it work after all that effort.  
 
This issue is ever the more pressing with the new low-end laptops, that associate different and more advanced hardware and software with generally poor graphic cards, making it nigh impossible to play some (most) older games. 

#49 Edited by DonPixel (2604 posts) -

The only thing I dislike about PC Gaming is how bitchy most of the comunity is... you know because publishers are evil, consoles are eating babies and DMR rapes your mom..

Just fking play games and have fun with it, how hard is that?

Other than that PC owns.
