Because most of the peasant game reviews are either paid - or made by a fanboy. Like TLOU which is a good example of overrated game, but it just happens to be made by naughty dog come at me, peasant. And yes I have completed the game, it was average.

The time it took to make that gif was time a MasterRace dude had nothing better to do with his glorious PC while a console player was actually having fun playing a video game.

prove it

Consoles just play games, can't make/edit vid->gifs on consoles.

So those netflix, amazon instant, music apps, blu-ray players, etc are just for show?

And all of those are still a fun time, not "let me specifically waste my time doing something to target a demographic I don't particularly like for no apparent reason other than make myself feel better".

Point proven.

Oh, so you're the only person who determines what is a fun time?

No, theres a lot of messed up people doing some crazy messed up stuff because they think its fun.

If bully/target a demographic is your cup of tea go ahead and do it.

Now you can drop it because you're not gonna win this argument, you haven't come up with one yet after all.

No, i've just pointed out where you're wrong.

Good day

Just read up, you can tell your hands from your feet, you're just trying to look clever and you can't come up with a single counter argument.

That gif took time, it was made with the sole intention to bully/antagonize console players, I don't even have to go beyond that to "prove" my original post as you requested.

Still not sure how it's "your topic", but okay

And in no way have I prevented you or anyone else from making topics or posting sources. But if your sources are flawed, why shouldn't I point that out?

You're the one who has been making it personal, from attempting to insult me constantly to putting me in your sig.

Just take the loss and move on. Seriously, it's sad to think that someone who acts like you do has kids

See there. You had to type take the loss and move on. Keep being a dick about people's topic. It's all you know as you can't see past your nose.

You're the one continuously slinging personal insults. Not sure how I'm the dick here.

And then you get on me for commenting/criticizing people's posts, and yet a number of times you felt compelled to comment on me saying "whoopty doo" or when you felt the need to say, "One from the Disaster Race makes another lame topic." in my topic about a Dark Souls 2 sale.

Makes you seem like a big fat hypocrite

All these insults to you are after you did them to me and others for no reason other than you aren't impressed with what their topic is about or in mine I didn't prove it to you. I had sources from VG Chartz and others.

Lol, and let's just stop right there

"Don't use VG Chartz in posts, don't create threads with them. They will be laughed at."

So you're upset because I pointed out that your sources are flawed, and that means it's okay to continuously personally insult me, including calling me one of the worst possible things out there, and act like a hypocrite?

Here is the latest. If you have a better source than this to prove me wrong. I will admit I was wrong.

Click the bottom left of the box that says "Global Hardware Totals" that says "This Generation" and change it to "Last Generation". It shows the PS3 has sold 1.1 million more globally. I figure it can be off by at most 500,000 units sold. 1.1 million ahead is enough to use it as a source.

once again

"Don't use VG Chartz in posts, don't create threads with them. They will be laughed at."

Touche. Don't post in topics just to be a dick. You're a PC guy posting in a topic bashing PS3 vs 360 sales. Btw, even my wives dead mother knows the PS3 came from behind to pass the 360. LOL

"For God's sake dude. Let people make topics and site sources and say things"

"Don't post in topics just to be a dick"

So which one is it? should people be allowed to make topics and say things or should they not. You're really confusing yourself

This is why.

I can install a game from 2001 on PC and it will play.

It is the purest form of an digital environment. That there is.

Microsoft/Sony wants you to buy into their BS all digital garbage when you can't even play the games from the previous systems. I looking at you. My collection of over 20+ arcade games!!!

That isn't the all digital environment I want to be apart of. If they are going to handcuff software to old hardware. Those licenses HAVE to be accessible to any future installment of hardware.

In my opinion you can't be a digital only entity unless all your games "old and new" are part of the package. As they are on the PC.

Microsoft is naïve to even think this was a smart move. This is not what all digital means Microsoft. I might have accepted the digital only environment. IF every game I had bought on every Microsoft hardware console iteration was mine. Then and only then would I consider an all digital environment like Steam.

The way Microsoft tried to pull this shit off was a money grab. /sleazy

That's why the PC will always be number 1 in my book. It is the purest form of a TRUE digital platform.

Then pls say were I was wrong in your opinion. But of course a big part of it is my theory. Feel free to quote on me on the parts where you think I was wrong and then we'll have a discussion.

I don't need to. You failed to prove what you were saying.

In what did I fail to prove what I was saying?

When do you ever prove what you were saying?

What is there to prove? Srs?

Point out what points need to be proven.

I first ran into the term when Zero Punctuation's Yahtzee used it to refer to hermits in a mocking fashion. It seemed to have flourished from there.

Pc gamers understand all gaming, console gamers only understand console gaming.

Anyway surely the Phrase "PC Gaming Master Race" is always said tongue in cheek and not meant as a serious indictment of any other gaming.

PC gamers that spout that "master race" nonsense are just pimply nerds whose testes haven't descended yet. I just do what girls do: ignore them.

^ This.

I've started playing games in 1991, still have the (non working) parts of my 1st WinPC, trust me, its all a bunch of kids that started on the PS2-360 and just found out about PCs.

it's great to see posters like you guys exist in this forum lol

I love playing on my PC; I've put more hours in the Civ. series that I care to count. I'll not act like an elitist nerd just because I have a PC I can game on (it's not particularly potent...GTX 650ti, 32-bit Windows, i5 processor).

I have fond memories of playing Sid Meier's Pirates Gold! and Doom I and II on my old Windows 3.1.1 PC back in the early 90s.

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?

These PC fanboys pump $300/year into their system in order to play the latest games on super high settings. The PC does things consoles can't, but when it comes to true versatility, consoles are truly dominant, particularly the X1. When you have friends over you can't hover around the PC sitting on the desk; people want to hang out in the living room and play. When playing games you don't always want to stick to RTS style games either. Consoles offer flexibility.

PC fanboys are always suffering from viruses and blue screens of death as well while my iMac never suffers a single hiccup. Sad PC fanboys.

How the hell is a console more versatile than a PC? Last time I checked, beyond gaming and some multimedia functionality the PC absolutely murders a console in the things it can do.

You did say we get better graphics, but you forgot: smoother framerates, more exclusives, emulators and the greatest application that is Steam.

And I have to agree with my buddy Vlad, who wants to be in a car with a peasant? no one.

Loading Video...

WIN

lol, you guys still playing GTA IV? why not V? oh right..

Yes we still play GTA IV. We've been playing GTA V when it came out, it's old and boring now since there are no mods for it, the same can't be said about GTA IV since thanks to PC we can make the game seem fresh and fun whenever we want.

@SolidGame_basic said:

yup

Well consoles get even less games than PC so consoles sure as hell aren't the master race, which only means PC gets the job.

Please explain why I can't play GTA V

have fun playing the best version! you know how much the PC people love that

so you can't explain your statement?

can't be master race when you have to wait a year to get the game after everyone else lol

...based on a single game?

lolreally?

actually I mentioned Destiny & MGS 5 before, but you guys love to keep downplaying it. what kind of master race is that?

So,because we can't play 3 games?

oo - also, Final Fantasy XV and Kingdom Hearts III

Console-user envy of the PC master race is adorable. Please continue :)

It's not envy. It's confusion as to why?

I think you guys enjoy being a fanboy to only 1 platform the way you all force your opinion on others. I'm sure in some of your guys fantasies, every single game ever made would only be made for your choice platform but reality hits hard, truth hurts. Putting yourselves on pedestals won't achieve anything. Forcing your opinion driving home points as if they were bullets won't quite change anyone's mind. It's an amusing debate for human psychology if nothing else but honestly I think most here in this thread would be far happier people if you balanced things out and get all the platforms that have the games you want.....from there you can be honest with yourself and choose which genre works best on which platform to provide the best overall experience. Sometimes it can be graphics or sometimes control or community or seamless and intuitive

For me, I opt to have racers, 3rd person, dogfighting and maybe specific FPS on consoles mostly due to input methods being optimized from the devs or games where I want to kick back and just get right to the game. Side scrollers, platformers I prefer on PSP or 3DS type systems. Classic arcades I prefer on an arcade with quality joysticks. Casual games, puzzles and Adventures I prefer on my iPad generally, some are more fun on the old Wii. RTS,RPG's and some FPS feel more comfortable on PC unless they are buggy,require tinkering or make the experience a bit too convoluted.

Don't any of you here have any sense for which styles and genres of games would work out better for you on specific platforms? You should at least know yourself that much, if so then you would know that none are superior over the other. Or are you guys so biased that you lie to yourself and get defensive? Grow up, play to have fun. There is no real "master race" nor smug console gamers. It's all in your heads and how you chose to perceive them. I know my posts are abrasive but reality is too. Some games are just more fun or provide a better overall experience on specific platforms. That's probably why they exist.

Your trolling is terrible and you should feel ashamed for it. And sides, Sqeenix said they were interested in getting FFXV on PC, sho KH3 might come as well.

And have fun playing Broken Age, Lichdom, Star Citizen, The Vanishing of Ethan Carter, The Forest, Elite Dangerous, Men of War : Assault Squad 2, Eve Valkyrie, Gauntlet, Fortnite, Planetary Annihilation, Dreamfall Chapters, Pillars of Eternity, Eden Star, Galactic Civilization 3, Survarium, Civilization : Beyond Earth, DayZ etc....oh wait....you can't....

Consoles are not the "master race" remember?
