Ya this kids an idiot, dont think bad of the whole of PC gaming because this freak is close minded....

#6 Posted by ThomasToad (5 posts) -

Any idiot can make a youtube video, this is not representative of PC gamers.

I am a PC gamer lol i play team fortress 2 in a clan . I'm saying i don't like the way PC gamers think

"I havn't run into any people online who were faggots", so obviously this guy hasn't run into himself online yet.

PC community is the most friendly I've run into on any console. PS3 comes in close second because nobody talks, and the people who do are usually older.

PC gamers aren't represented by one group of people. The type of people who are designated PC gamers are from one side of the spectrum all the way through to the other side. The kid in the video is an asshole and you will find many PC gamers who are assholes and elitists. I do agree that FPS are better on the PC but I don't agree they should only be for PC. I do not like FPS on console because I grew up using the keyboard and mouse and cannot stand using the controller. With all this said, I am not everyone. There are so many different players out there who like different things. If someone says one thing sucks, it doesn't mean it sucks unless everyone else agrees. I think Halo sucks, but it doesn't to a lot of people.

"You failed!"

Pretty much summed up the vid. Don't let it get to ya.

The guy uses the word "shit" too often. I'm surprised he has a "blog" (which hasn't been updated in a year), and all of his "video reviews" on that website are terrible. He mentions not liking console FPSs, but yet, he reviews an FPS on the Playstation 3. His "cons" are too few maps, and the game types not being "fantastically new." He mentions that the TF2 community is decent, but he fails to mention the endless amount of custom maps, disproving the notion of too few maps. Game types don't have new, because the same game types was what made Team Fortress Classic so damn fun, and why not change something that wasn't broken? No offense to him, but he isn't a very good reviewer at all, and it is hard to get beyond his very profound language. You definitely shouldn't judge an entire group of gamers, based off the ignorant few who believe the only way to play games is on a computer.

I didn't find the reveiw to to be that bad at all...the language is offensive at times, but the tone of the review is still encouraging people who are more "casual" or into other shooters to check out TF2.  He talks about how all the classes are fun, and how you don't need to invest hours at a time into it... that's not elitist.  It would be elitist if he were insulting new players who come into TF2 two years after its release and don't know how to play. 

If you're referring to the bit at the start about why someone would play console shooters when they have a working computer, the FPS PC/console control scheme thing has been debated to death.  He clearly prefers the PC, but so do lots of people.  I don't think he comes off as a douche... 

#13 Posted by Shuborno (938 posts) -

The TF2 community is usually awesome.

This guy doesn't do a great job mentioning what makes TF2 good.  He seems to just give a rundown of the features.

To be fair, this is a game suited to the PC.  I love console shooters, but this specific game has to be played on PC.  It's just better supported, and there's so much content that at this point that the console versions are TF2-lite.

#14 Edited by Hamst3r (4481 posts) -

How is he any different than the console fanboys I hear saying the exact same kind of stuff? I hear this stuff from all sides.

Also, I hear people cry elitism over everything. Thing is though, is it really? Is it still elitism if the statement is true? "The PC version of Mass Effect has better graphics." Is that an elitist statement, even though it's true? I've been called an elitist for saying things like that. Not to say that the console versions aren't good - they are, but it sometimes feels like we're dealing with religion here and not video games.

#15 Posted by Pazy (2563 posts) -

There elitists on all systems, they suck and should be avoided. Dont let them taint your opinion of a whole community.

facepalm

Actually, there are a number of Giant Bomb users that remind me of this guy.

"Your soldier class, just runnin' 'round blastin' niggas."

Classy.

#18 Posted by keyhunter (3207 posts) -

That guy plays a medic in "These types of games" So he's sort of a bitch anyways. No need to take him seriously.

#19 Posted by LeadNinja (308 posts) -

I can't remember which (former?) 1up podcaster it was, but I thought at the start this was the moron-360-fanboy voice one of them was using in 1UP FM.

#20 Posted by Torrim (330 posts) -

Ugh, I hate the elitist mentality that alot of PC gamers tend to hold.  But then again, they're the same people that usually pirate are are somewhat responsible for their own platforms fall from grace.  Ok, so that's a huge and probably unfair generalization, but I'm on the internet.

Also, there is no question that Valve games are the best on the PC.  This isn't a m/kb argument because I prefer to play with a controller even though I know one is more accurate, it's more due to the fact that these games have a more vibrant community, support for mods, look better, sharper, and run smoother on the PC.  I'm reaching the same conclusion as this guy, that one is better than the other, but he's being a douchebag saying that any FPS on a console is worthless.  Well, his loss, I'm playing more awesome games and he's not.

#21 Edited by Tylea002 (2295 posts) -

His name is WiCKeDKAe. I kinda didn't listen after I saw that.

EDIT: OK, I did watch it. A couple of points: Saying "bitches, faggots, and "n shit" after every other word for perhaps any more suitable word, doesn't make you cool. Neither does saying peace out, bitch. Neither does saying "hooking us up with" as if patches are drugs. Also, if he thinks he has any standing as a good critic, he doesn't. Sure he has opinions, but doesn't know how to compare them without contradicting himself, or sounding like an arse that no one should want to listen to.

#22 Posted by Satune (477 posts) -

Lol I love at the end of his review he lost the round so it said "You Fail" that kinda describes his review.

#23 Posted by Djstyles92 (952 posts) -

i like at the 5 min mark he says shit ton...idk but that made me laugh

#24 Posted by zombie2011 (4972 posts) -

This guy reminds of a a 7th grader who thinks its cool to swear, so every other word out his mouth is a swear word.

#25 Posted by turbomonkey138 (4950 posts) -

The Team Fortress 2 community is amazing . Valve is my favorite game company

#31 Posted by turbomonkey138 (4950 posts) -
@PowerSerj: Yea . Battlefield 2 and 2142 . Dawn of war 1 and 2 . Command and conquer etc  . I find that counter strike players are the worst for this kind of elitist thinking .
#32 Posted by Gamer_152 (14072 posts) -

Indeed this is a terrible review. The footage used for it wasn't that varied or entirely lag-free but that could have been forgiven if what he had to say was actually worth listening to. Unfortunately he spent more than 2 minutes talking before he even really started reviewing the game and it was only at about half way through the video that the words "after you've chosen your class" actually came out of his mouth. He seemed to spend more time talking about the first thing that popped into his head in a flurry of verbal diarrhea than he did attempt to give a well-rounded idea of how good the game actually was. Sadly the highlights of this video were probably his explanation of SOME of the abilities of the different classes and his mention of the achievements in the game. By the end of the video his overuse of casual swearing and the arrogant and cocky way he churned out everything from homophobic slurs to straight out swear words had gotten ridiculous. This review doesn't make me hate PC gamers but it sure makes me think this guy may have a few issues he needs to work out.

Why bother?  TF2 is the best. ;)
#36 Posted by Tarakun (225 posts) -

You really think that PC gamers are worse by miles? In my experience PC gamers have claimed that FPS belongs on PC's because of the M/KB combo. Also, it is important to remember that the FPS genre started on the PC, and so a lot of people feel that is still the best place for them. If you want to interpret that as Elitist, then go ahead, but I think you are overreacting.


On the other side, I've seen a lot of console gamers reject the PC platform as a whole. I had a kid tell me once that;
"Consoles are for games, PC's are for porn."

Let's be honest, there are jerks on both sides, and I think hating an entire userbase for what one guy said is a bit much.

 Also, yes, that guy is a douchebag. But most PC gamers aren't like that. 
#37 Posted by turbomonkey138 (4950 posts) -

I honestly prefer playing FPS on the xbox . Call of duty 4 was way more fun on there than it was on the pc

BUT THEY DON'T THINK LIKE THAT lol

I have no clue where your coming from with this elitest thing, they really arent like that, if anything they aren't much different then console gamers, in their mindset anyways, At most, PC gamers expect more out of the games that go on PC, as in 64 player multiplayer, mod support, etc. That doesnt mean they think they are BETTER then anyone, it just says they know what their platform is capable of and want developers to make the most use out of it they can.

You clearly do not play enough PC games to understand the community, if you just go by what you see in one game, you have no actual idea of what people in other games are like, to be honest, i find people on xbox live to be complete morons, but thats only because ive only ever really played Halo 3, so i dont have a clear view point of what people on other games are like.

That guy's pretty annoying, but I take solace in the fact that he will never know the touch of a woman.

#40 Edited by Crono (2655 posts) -

Judging an entire community of gamers based on 1 instance.  Racist!  The race of PC gamers will be very upset.

But anyway, TF2 is an awesome FPS.  It is definitely much more rewarding on the PC than the console however not solely because the game gets the updates much faster, but because there is a larger community that plays it on the PC than there is on the 360.  It can be a very casual game or highly competitive.  The game is brilliant and I have found it to be a much more enjoyable FPS than CoD4 personally.  Don't get me wrong though because I still enjoy CoD4 and I love the BF series.  CS is also a very good and fun game.  But for whatever reason, I have had much more fun playing TF2 than any of those other FPS titles.

#41 Posted by IncredibleBulk92 (936 posts) -

I really don't mind people swearing and I don't even mind reviews swearing or anything like that but this guy ends every single sentence with "and shit".  It really started to bother me about 3 minutes in.  God this guy is a dick.  Sorry but from my experiences very few people who play PC are like this,  I do think that a lot of games play much better on the PC but I'm not a cock about it.  


Also: he's also pretty bad at the game lolz
#42 Posted by Shermanator (187 posts) -

Well, I guess the guy in the video is entitled to his opinion, but this is a little excessive

#43 Posted by Diamond (8634 posts) -

Hate the gamer, not the game.

#44 Posted by JoelTGM (5596 posts) -

if you're a console fanboy, then sure you'll find it insulting... but otherwise what he said sounds pretty reasonable.

Nope, 30 seconds in and the guy is definitely a fucktard.
#46 Posted by Bucketdeth (8007 posts) -

Yep sounds like a douche, but he only said two or three times about consoles being shitty, even though I disagree.

#47 Posted by T0mF5 (928 posts) -

I loved his prononciation of demo.

#48 Posted by Cross (50 posts) -
@turbomonkey138: I'd say that if that faggot right there was the standard, I wouldn't be playing online on the PC. Thankfully, that idiot reviewing the game is the exception rather than the rule.
#49 Edited by Shermanator (187 posts) -

The way he spelled his name at the beginning of the video should have been a telling sign this was going to be interesting.  

Check out his other reviews, they are just more of the same
#50 Posted by galfisk (136 posts) -

He's not going to review this bitch for the consoles.
