while EA may have done some questionable things.... they do ship on time. we are still waiting for Valve to release HL2: EP3.

Um, no. Hardware would advance even if PC gaming died. Have you looked at what the next gen console projected Specs are? They're pretty close to a Mid to high grade PC of today. So while it'd be a little slower we'd still have development.

The only reason I can think of anything causing a delay in hardware development is if the industry took a massive blow, and I mean something big like an E.T. occurring.

*shrug* My Oblivion (with 14+ gigs of mods) looks and plays better than console vanilla Skyrim. _My_ Skyrim (with 20+ gigs of mods) plays at 1600x1024, with 2048x2048 textures, and all other settings maxxed, and does it without so much as a stutter (lingering transition instabilities notwithstanding.) And that's with 2010 hardware, so there are better gaming rigs than mine out there. But yes, PCs and consoles are exactly the same and our play experiences are always directly comparable.

/ 2005-2006 hardware + lowest common denominator vanilla gameplay isn't worthless, but it is limiting.

//Not elitist
///I can at least agree with you about EA


I wish there were more PC gamers like you, who see themselves as a gamer first and the PC simply being their preferred platform. I used to be a big time PC gamer in HS it was pretty much all i did besides football.

Wanna feel strange? Tell your geeky friends you gotta show up late to the LAN because of friday night lights. At least they were willing to set up my beast for me ahead of time knowing i would be tired a shiat.

As time went on i've drifted away from my original PC roots, moving out of my comfort zone (which is a good thing). I still play a few games here and there (Civ V, anything Team Meat , Sins of a Solar Empire) but i'm mainly an Xbox person now. The thing that recently cemented me as a console gamer was a conversation i had with a buddy of mine's roommate. We were talking about Steam Big Picture , i was touting how it would allow more people to get access to steam's library in a way they enjoy playing. How it was designed with the controller in mind.

To quote "I guess the console-like interface is the selling point. I'm running my rig on 16:9 HDTVs right now, and I haven't noticed an issue. If I was a club-handed console kid that was incapable of using a 104-standard without choking myself with the cable, I could find a use for the thing."

It's just indicative of how the "Master Race PC Gamer" thinks, that little sense of superiority they feel because of how much time and money they've invested in their computer. In my mind there are no club handed console kids, there are no master race pc players - we are all just gamers.

Here's a very simple example. Every console is focused on gaming, so it ships with a brand new and interesting controller and has games' UIs specifically designed around the inputs (like the Modern Warfare series, or Oblivion). PC has never developed a specific controller, instead depending on a typewriter keyboard and mouse to be shoehorned into a game. I mean, look at the people complaining about Skyrim's UI - the only person they should be blaming are PC for not having a sensible input device. I'll admit that there are some good controllers for the PC, but those have been directly stolen from console controllers.

Exactly. The only example of a 'solid PC community' is some DRM that they're forced to use to play their games. Not something that can compete with XBox Live or PSN.

Fish in a Barrel: I don't see how any rational gamer from my universe could hold these opinions.

Here's a very simple example. Every console is focused on gaming, so it ships with a brand new and interesting controller and has games' UIs specifically designed around the inputs (like the Modern Warfare series, or Oblivion). PC has never developed a specific controller, instead depending on a typewriter keyboard and mouse to be shoehorned into a game. I mean, look at the people complaining about Skyrim's UI - the only person they should be blaming are PC for not having a sensible input device. I'll admit that there are some good controllers for the PC, but those have been directly stolen from console controllers.

Push W to move forward? Why not push forward to move forward? It's not difficult.


ask the people that OWN console players (who are using a controller) with a keyboard and mouse setup. no comparison. console players just can't hang.

come on, dude. arguing that controllers are superior to a kyb\ms setup is just stupid.

Fish in a Barrel: Straight to doom: Frankly PC gamers are a bad influence on the social aspects of gaming...

Straight to doom: I'm not saying that, but I'll take a 12 year old screaming over me killing him in BF3 over a PC Gamer ranting on about how MODS R BEST THING EVURZ.

sprawl15: Mods are exactly what's wrong with PC gaming. The ability of the people who own and enjoy the game to change the experience to suit their tastes undermines the entire idea of gaming - the companies create a thing that is nominally a game for you to experience and you pay them for it. Very simple, and PC gamers have managed to fark even that up. How about instead of ten thousand mods to put big titted underage Asian girls into Skyrim, PC gamers figure out a way to have a solid, dependable community like on XBox Live?

These comments make me wonder if I've somehow slipped into some parallel universe. I don't see how any rational gamer from my universe could hold these opinions.


They're just trolling.

Honest Bender: Solid troll, bro. You didn't over reach, you hit a few key topics without going full retard... Very nice. 9/10. You'll catch a lot with that.

He overreached, there.

MooseUpNorth: Straight to doom: Frankly PC gamers are a bad influence on the social aspects of gaming and make gamers look like elitists' that find everything that isn't a GTX690 worthless.

*shrug* My Oblivion (with 14+ gigs of mods) looks and plays better than console vanilla Skyrim. _My_ Skyrim (with 20+ gigs of mods) plays at 1600x1024, with 2048x2048 textures, and all other settings maxxed, and does it without so much as a stutter (lingering transition instabilities notwithstanding.) And that's with 2010 hardware, so there are better gaming rigs than mine out there. But yes, PCs and consoles are exactly the same and our play experiences are always directly comparable.

/ 2005-2006 hardware + lowest common denominator vanilla gameplay isn't worthless, but it is limiting.
// Not suggesting their attack on EA is right. Funny, hell yes.


I know you weren't speaking from the PC warrior POV, but there's also the time invested aspect and the "does texture resolution and 16x antialiasing matter to you"... for me, I like good looking games but I also like putting the disc in and playing since I don't have as much time as I used to for clearing drive space for install, tweaking settings if your PC can't handle max everything, the time it takes to search/vet mods if that's your thing, etc... in the early 2000s that was all great but now I like that my PS3 will get something running in 12 seconds without any effort. That is worth it enough to me that I don't care about those other things.

Skyrim is a bad example for me though because a) I haven't played an TES game and b) I've heard there are performance problems on consoles, which is obviously different than pure visuals. Getting a job in IT has ruined some of my hobbies for me, I used to love Unity and making little games for my friends but now when I get home the last thing I want to see is another computer screen. I don't even game on TV as much anymore because I value that time away from the screen more than when I was in school or whatever. So some of the joy of building a sexy PC and watching it scream on modern games is lost when it feels more like a chore than before.

Can't name too many games that are worth it for PS3 though if you have the option. Now that Dark Souls is on PC that's one of the finest experiences out there (too bad Demon Souls wont get same treatment). Uncharted games are great and UC3 online is the only thing that keeps my PS3 chugging most of the time. I have a media server hooked up for emulation for my game collections pre-PS2 now, as my PC can't even run Dolphin/epsx2 at full speed.

If there's one company on earth that deserves... nay, needs... that sort of treatment, it's EA.

For kicks, I'm going to walk over to my xbox, turn it on, and time how long it takes my previously installed, currently loaded Forza 4 to start. I'll let you know the time when XBL is done updating. Again.

Yeah, that seems likely. I'm just used to trolls making some sense!

Huh, sonavagun, that's the first time in a long, long time that I didn't have to sit through 30 minutes worth of XBL UI updating before I could play.
