I am none of those types, because I play video games alone and offline and don't give a damn if it's a PS2 game or not.

PC only gamers are by far the most annoying. They think missing out on exclusives because they spent $1000 on a PC but won't drop an additional $200 on a console makes them more hardcore or elite.

Look, if you can only afford one platform and picked PC that is fine but don't pretend it makes you better than other gamers. You're still being limited on what games you can pick by your platform of choice.

Anyone who thinks they are superior because of their choice of console/PC. There are plenty on Fark in every XBone/PS4 thread lately.

This.  The only reason I use my XBox live account is to watch Netflix, and Hulu.

The gamers I find the most annoying are the ones who have no other life and spend far too much energy chastising my lame equipment because I haven't spent ten hours a day farming for gear.

I consider "casual" a compliment.  It means I have a real life.  It means I get to see and feel real boobies instead of running around ganking n00bs.

Hehe. I just remembered some video of someone playing call of duty with the only other person in the game with them being a five year old with the voice of a chipmunk. "Nooooo, you guys stoooop it". "I said don't shooooot meeeeee!" "Noooooo, your a big poopy head!" "I'm going to call my dad, and if you don't stop shooting me he's going to call the police." "Whaaahhh, daddy!"
Seriously, why the hell was a little kid playing an M rated game? Were his parents just too lazy to care?

I don't really understand people who want to make gaming either or things all the time.  You like PC only?  Great for you.  You're loyal to your PS or Xbox?  Awesome.  Some of us play on multiple platforms because we like playing different games on different machines or because some games are exclusives.  I don't know why people feel superior because they play exclusively on the PC or whatever.  It's like people who feel superior because they only watch TV on Netflix or by illegally downloading it instead of owning a tv.

Also, I will agree with the person who said you only think older games are superior due to nostalgia.  We all do this with something at some point I suppose.  I know I will probably always think Everquest was the best MMO ever made because it was the first one I played.  It doesn't really make it objectively the case though (just to me).  To say that no good games have come out in 10-20 years is ridiculous and just shows that you aren't really aware of what games are out there (or perhaps you have very particular taste).  Of course this all goes back to the definition of "good" which is entirely subjective.

Carth: At this point in the lifecycle there is no reason for PC gamers to pick up a cheap PS3 to play all the exclusives they missed. If you have a nice PC and a backlogged PS3 buy a new console in 2-3 years when the prices drop.


Which is exactly what I did. I've got a great laptop that meets my PC gaming needs quite well, and with Humble Bundle, GOG, and Steam, I already have more PC games than I'll ever play in my lifetime. (So why do I keep buying more?) I finaly picked up a PS3 this year and I now have several years' worth of great games available at very good prices. So I may not ever be current when it comes to the latest games, but I'm having fun.

I feel sorry for people who feel like they need a restrictive definition of a "Real Gamer."  They don't realize it, but they are ruining their own fun by putting restrictions on what counts as fun. For me, a "real gamer" games on whatever the hell they want to game on.

kukukupo: Put me in the 'Games were better back then' crowd.

Sadly, it is true.  I can count on my two hands the games I've played and enjoyed in the last 10 years or so (especially since consoles moved to disks.  I still don't understand how people put up with LOAD times!).  Pretty much every one has been on PC.

There are at lest a few dozen games I regularly play from the NES / SNES era - and with fan translations, I can go back and play games that were never released in the US.


I'm also in this category. And I think it's less about the game quality and more about the fact that we played these games in our formative years. Games for me is like music for other people. For many, the music of their teens was perfect and nothing can top it; for me, the games I played in my teens and early 20's are untouchable by modern games.

And I know that my belief in the superiority of these games is nostalgia, because earlier this year I played Final Fantasy VI (or III from the SNES days) for the first time. Even though it was a contemporary of Chrono Trigger and clearly one of the best games ever made of that era, I don't have the same attachment to it that I do for Chrono Trigger, which I played when it came out and will love to my dying day. For me, Final Fantasy VI is a recognizably excellent game, but because I didn't play it in my youth, I'm not as charmed by it.

When I replay older games, they take me back to the time when I first played them, and it reminds me of how I felt when I first beheld those amazing 8 and 16 bit graphics. It reminds me of playing games with my friends for hours on end because we were 8 and had no other responsibilities.

I must be one of the three unlisted types of gamers. I was really looking forward to a classification too.

Oh right, PC gaming master race. Good enough!
