@Vatusus: so you're generalizing based on a small group of elitisits who may or may not be trolling, but not for the console gamers who show the same elitist attitudes?

The generalization is justified when it comes to hermits when in every single discussion they have to state how "superior" they are.

@Vatusus: pretty sure console gamers talk about being superior because of their platform all the time.

I see dirty console peasants bragging about 1080p and fps and textures and lighting lmfao. The Master race had 1080p back in 2001. Now Hermits on mid rigs game at 2k while peasants gaming on pauperstation 4 brag about medium settings at 30fps at 1080p in 2014. I have even seen peasants claim console exclusives look better than anything on pc. I usually just look and lol but this shit is getting out of hand. It's not to good to have peasants running wild talking shit about the Master Race.

We don't call ourselves the Master Race or anything to the equivalent. We compare sales, exclusive games, services and their value on our system.

I wouldn't down a PC gamer who had sources stating something about PC just because I didn't like what it said or because I have to put down what their topic is just because it says something about their favorite platform that I don't care about or agree with.

You go too far with calling yourselves the Master Race & putting down people who make topics with supporting sources to what their topic is.

Man, you know one of those days where it's warm, but a breeze comes in and just gently blows through your pubic hair?

Obviously, you need to be naked to experience this, but God, it's good.

Sure they get better graphics, but they don't necessarily get better games. You can't play console exclusives which are developed by the some of the best studios in the world. In terms of the medium, consoles push gameplay and storytelling, PCs push the next hardware. And with next gen consoles here, the graphical advantage is not what is used to be. Also, next gen consoles are quickly becoming the home to many indie games, so PC doesn't even have that anymore. And lastly, who wants to buy a desktop these days unless you really need to? So can we finally agree that the PC master race is no more?

Sure they are nice toys, but they don't necessarily get better games. You can't play PC exclusives which are developed by the some of the best studios in the world. In terms of the medium, PC push gameplay, storytelling and graphics, consoles push the kids to talking gangsta. And with next gen consoles here, the graphical advantage on PC is now even bigger compared to the beginning of the last gen. Also, next gen consoles are becoming the home to a few indie games, so PC continuing to dominate and in this area as well. And lastly, who wants to buy a console these days unless you have 5 years old kids? So can we finally agree that the PC master race is here to stay and dominate?

No but console gamers do act superior based simply on their platform of choice, either versus other consoles or versus PC.

Also, didn't you just going on a rant saying PC gamers are a bunch of "retarded losers"

It's a master race because of the mentality that we are better than you. Gaming is about preference and I don't see anything wrong with consoles but you really can't argue PC isn't superior in every way except exclusives because that's an opinion. On console, MS, Sony have a complete monopoly over what you experience and play. That's why you're refered to as a peasant. You're essentially a slave to their system.

Peasants always blame the lords for their own failures to be on top.

ROYAL KNIGHTS OF GABEN MASTER RACE

PC literally obliterates console in every way. I have been a big defender of console power in the past, but the difference is far to great at the start of this gen. x360 launched with a top of the line GPU and CPU. The ps4 launched with a mid tier GPU and a crappy laptop CPU. Never mind the Xbone and Wii U specs. The difference is sickening. That's not to say the consoles can't do amazing things but as stated earlier in the thread there are limitations and you are at the mercy of Microsoft and Sony whereas the PC as an open platform has limitless potential.

multiplats are the real big and good games, exclusives suck because the only devs who accept bribe to make a game exclusive are the new and small devs

ps2 had good exclusives but it dominated that gen and selling on ps2 was equivalent to sell for everyone

There isn't an explanation for the PC master race, it just is. It's like asking someone to explain gravity or fucking magnets, not everything that is true is easy to describe.

Master race comes in, master race goes out. Can't explain that.

All fan groups are douchy, and sure the PC fanbase certainly can be grade A douchy.

Thing is though the worst thing you can ever say about PC elitists, is that they are elitist. Consolites? are fucking ignorant. If I have to tolerate one. I'd rather go with the elitist douche who at least knows what he or she is talking about. As oppose to an idiot who will spew shit that is objectively false.

#132 Edited by uninspiredcup (8304 posts) -

As primarily a console gamer I find pc gamers very amusing. The "we are the best" attitude doesn't mean much if consoles have outright taken over FPS, RPG's and every genre that generally isn't MMO or casual bejewel tablet games.

What is pc gaming now? Well, if you go by core games, it's console ports. And what are console ports? Secondary. Likewise many of these ports (dark souls 2 recently) are delayed to curb piracy because console gamers actually buy games and publishers do not want these "master race" cutting into that demographic piece of the pie, the primary piece of the pie.

You get good console ports and casual tablet games designed for bored house wfes. Congrats. Truly, amazing.

Waw....

Beats me. I don't get involved in the "master race" bit. I just want to play games. It's just like when I was gaming on the Amiga. There's always Amiga zealots putting down all other platforms (including IBM-compatibles) It sucked having to share the platform with them.

linux is getting:

the witcher 3

star citizen

new civilization

project cars

linux is my favourite OS, and it runs on many platforms including PC - so I'm pretty happy.

I don't subscribe to this master race business and I think it's uncool to call people peasants.

Pheasants though, that's really cool. It just sounds great. If anyone wants to call me a pheasant I'd be ... a box of birds! haha!

We can play all the console exclusives of the past on a single machine.

Additionally, I can do so with any controller that ever existed basically.

@FACT: PC owners are elite.

This should help clear things up........

We can afford a PC that clearly out performs your broken boxes that never work properly on release

We laugh at console owners crying cos its not 1080p

We don't get limited at 60fps

We buy/build a PC & actually have games available to play at that point that are actually quite good & don't have to wait over 12 months for a game worth playing

We can build a PC that performs at least as good as a current gen console for about the same price (a number of sites have done this), yet we don't, we pay a little bit more to build better, that lasts longer.

We don't have to pay £60 for a game - that usually turns out to be 4 hours long and/or utter shite

Our PC's can do all the tricks your little plastic boxes do & more (& yes that includes Kinect type hardware - no? google it)

We don't have to pay extra on-top of our broadband deal to play our games online (SUBSCRIPTION GAMES NOT INCLUDED)

Our PC's can run our back catalogue of games

Got a last gen console i.e 360 or ps3? We can emulate that and play your games if we wanted, (no? google it) - can you play your last gen games on your new console?

We can upgrade/alter/change/repair our machines at our leisure without breaking shitty little warranties that don't actually cover any of the faults, cause legal issues or other infringements.

We don't get storage capacity issues

We don't care about exclusives as that exclusive is the same game as the last exclusive, is more often that not generic boredom inducing meh-ness and always loaded with unwarranted adolescent hype. Plus we have something similar ALREADY zzzzz. Consoles get exclusives as you'll happily pay £60 for the crap 'AAA' minimal content game cos itz lookz goodz innit

We don't need assisted aim to shoot people with mouse & keyboard

We can mod our games

oh and

We have access to the Steam sale

You beg for console game ports with hundreds of thousands of petition signatures.

You come in last place in game of the year exclusives for an entire gen

Your library consists mostly of indies, which negates the power of your rigs, since they perform and look exactly the same on consoles, handhelds, and mobile.

You only purchase games during Steam sales because you are not as financially sound

You do not play your games

You wait months for games already on consoles

PC gaming is growing .

Fastest Growing Platform of the world :

PC gaming made 24 billion USD in 2013 :

http://www.dualshockers.com/2014/04/12/developers-explain-why-pc-gaming-has-never-been-stronger-24-billion-dollars-yearly-revenue-estimated/

More devs are interested in PC than PS4 and Xbox One :

Source : http://www.dsogaming.com/news/gdc-2014-survey-proves-that-pc-is-the-most-popular-platform/

Conclusion : PC is stronger than ever and isn't going away anytime soon .

I'm not saying that Consoles are irrelevant (even though none of console exclusives interest me) but saying PC is not relevant anymore is ignorance .
