Electromax: 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.


Steam can have something running in less than 12 seconds. All I do is click Play and the game launches. No looking for "where did I put the case" or "omg why did my kids break the disc".

Most computers come with 500GB or 1TB hard drives these days. Are you saying that (on average) you have about ~20 games that take 25GB each for 500GB? As noted elsewhere in this thread, even an expansive and modded out game like Skyrim is only 20GB -- most are significantly less. Heck, 3GB drives can be had for $130 these days. If you fill up that drive with games and you play every single one of them, I seriously suggest you put the controller down and do something else for a while.

LOL, "the time it takes to search / vet mods" is the same amount of time you'd apply into "search / vet" games. Even then, people (with more time then you) tell you of cool mods... or if you're a social reject, Steam Workshop or most mod sites' rating systems even takes care of that for you.

Most high end games will also autodetect what your capabilities are and configure itself accordingly, so again, not sure what you're talking about here. A lot of them will also have presets that literally take 5 seconds to change, even if the autodetect fails.

Incidentally, why are you on Fark comments if you hate looking at a screen? lol

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.


XBL isn't perfect but it's far more tolerable than listening to people having a pissing contest over tech specs.

That's like saying Mac OS and Linux are the same.

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.

EA on the other hand uses business ethics that makes Nigerian Royalty scammers blush.

What, and all console players are total bros?

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


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.

Am I saying Consoles are superior? No I'm not but I certainly don't sit there on a high horse prattling on about PC superiority.

abhorrent1: How the fark do these 13/yo basement dwellers afford a $1000 graphics card? My two laptops barely cost that much.

/console gamer
//PS3


All the former 13 year old basement dwellers are now 30 year old basement dwellers.

Actually hardware prices are way down. The bleeding edge stuff is still expensive, but $200 will buy you a heck of a video card now.

while PC gamers may be a bit "elite" acting..... it IS pc gamers that get the real advances in gaming done. no pc gamers - no advancement in hardware.
