I have been a console gamer the majority of my life and still love console gaming and always will. After seeing youtubers talk about pc gaming and how much better it is then console gaming, my interest in pc gaming became very high. Once I got my own gaming PC I can safely say I can never go back, the deals, mods, community make pc gaming the ultimate gaming platform there is and I just love it. I just wanted to know how many of you are pc gamers and console gamers and if your a console gamer if you could explain why you don't pc game, this is a debate topic and I would love for everyone to share there thoughts on the topic.

#2 Posted by iam3green (14390 posts) -

don't have sound right now.

i would say a little nudge to the pc. the graphics are always better than consoles, there is always a community for older games, mods for games. there are always people playing older games on the pc. the consoles they either shut down the server after a couple of years, or the community just ends up dieing.

on the other hand sometimes pc games are bad on the pc. the console game is better. the developers don't do a great job optimizing the game for the pc so it ends up being crappy.

The PC gaming is better but it is a bit more expensive (however not by much as some console fags try to tell you). You get what you pay for, also certain genres like FPS and RTS are basically fucked on the consoles, although some genres like platformers are not that well represented on the PC.

My thoughts: You're too young to being playing M-rated games. 
 
Also, they both have their merits. :O

No. I have a far more interesting debate for us to tackle again.

Pancakes vs Waffles.

Personally, I think a good pancake beats the best waffles. However, I've had plenty of bad pancakes and NEVER a bad waffle.

Not this again.

I swear, I've been having this conversation for the last 20 years.

You make a fair case. Yet, I would argue that pancakes have more options when it comes to what to put on them, while waffles are fairly limited in that aspect. Personally, I am also a pancake man.

PC VS Console game threads always devolve into shit slinging matches. Also, we already have a few of these threads, there's no need to post a new one.

There's a chicken and waffles place near where I live and it's amazing. On their own, the waffles are the best I've ever had, hands down. They've got the right balance between fluffy, crispy, and, chewy and they have just a hint of cinnamon in them. Paired with equally awesome fried chicken, it's easy to see why the line out the door starts as soon as they open every day.

I can't imagine "chicken and pancakes" would be the same sort of experience no matter how good the pancakes were.

Are you from Alabama? That place sounds like an Alabama-ass eating establishment.

Scottsdale, yo!

It's is Alabama as fuck, though. And the only place in town I can get a huge Mason jar full of orange Fanta.

Mason jars of orange Fanta are possibly the most Alabama thing I've ever heard of in my life.

Stop being a cheapass, do both.

One thing I will say, the 350+ games I have on Steam cost me less than the 20 PS3 games I have.

My Consoles could kick my PCs ass. 
At least when I throw them at it  
 
all of the platforms I play games on are worth playing games on. 
Otherwise I wouldn't do it in the first place. 
 
Stop this stupid war! WON'T ANYONE THINK OF THE CHILDREN!(Playing M-rated games, apparantly)

I disagree with both of you. Waffles are the BEST. Not only can you put the exact same things on them, they hold up better than pancakes over time. All the toppings don't just slide off either. I don't like super thick, and soggy from the get go waffles though. They have to be crispy on the outside and chewy on the inside. I bought a griddle and a waffle maker, the only use the griddle sees is grilled cheese sandwiches.

You don't have to always be on these threads to know that. Simply search before posting. It only took me 5 seconds to find those PC vs Console threads. =P

Apostrophes are used to indicate missing letters or possessive case: e.g., "My friend's opinions are retarded," is correct, but "My friend's are stupid," is grammatically incorrect. I only state this because adding apostrophes with every pluralization is an utter waste of time. If you're going to be lazy on the internet, at least go the whole mile and don't use any unnecessary punctuation at all.

I am a console gamer and I understand that PC gaming is technically better but PC doesn't have the games I want and if they did I would probably have to buy another part for my PC to play it properly. Console gaming is easier for me and I like the variety of games they bring to the table in comparison to PC gaming, there are more games that interest me that are only on consoles as well. So PC gaming is technically better but console gaming is better for me.

#46 Posted by Geno (6477 posts) -

Other than certain game exclusivities and ease of use, PC gaming is better in every way. It's much more expensive though, out of reach for most teenagers/early 20's which is something like the majority of gamers. It's not much of a debate; a Bugatti Veyron is better than a Ford Sedan, but much more expensive and not as practical to drive. Both fill their own niches for age, income and quality demographics alike. The only reason to "look down" on console gamers is if they insist their graphics or performance is comparable or something.
