If you could only play CONSOLE or PC this gen, which would it be?

Edited 7 months, 22 days ago

Poll: If you could only play CONSOLE or PC this gen, which would it be? (133 votes)

CONSOLE 26%
PC 74%

I would go with consoles. PCs are vastly overrated. First off, I don't care about having the best specs because consoles have great graphics/performances as it is. Second, I prefer console exclusives a ton more than PC exclusives. The only real exclusives that PC has over consoles are RTS, MMOs, and sim type games. Consoles will always get the big blockbuster titles 95% of the time and each system has its own exclusives too. Also, there are games like Destiny, MGS5 & Final Fantasy that haven't even been announced for console. And what happened to GTA5? Third, consoles are now the home for indies, so PC doesn't even have that either. So overall, I'd go with consoles. You?

I prefer PC. And thats not because of the graphics.. even do i love great graphics i dont care about graphics since gameplay trumps graphics.. I still play warcraft 3 to this day and it looks terrible

The reason i prefer pc is because console games are too short.. They focus way to much on movie style big budget impressions.. After 5-8 hours your $60 dollar game is beaten and you are wondering what next to play...

I dont have that problem on pc.. I prefer thinking/strategic games with the occasional single player experience. Most games are multiplats nowadays and my pc will put out better looking multiplat games than the ps4 or bone can. So screw consoles.. PC only.. I used to be a nintendo/ps fanboy.. But about 8 years ago i stopped playing consoles entirely and never had the interest to come back..

PC always wins these votes, because it flat out is he best overall gaming device when done right.

1) Most high quality rated titles and the highest rate of exclusivity.

2) The 2 most influetial co-op and competitive genres in gaming are nearly completely exclusive to it (MMO's and MOBA/RTS).

3) It's indie and kickstarter scene is giving out gaming experiences that are otherwise dead....

4) Look at Sony and Microsoft.... most of their first part are bloody first person graphic whoring shooters... Sony is by far worse... as they care more about presentation/story than actual gameplay..... while microsoft has milked its trio dry....

Consoles are losing their identity..... the 2 "HD TWINS" so called are poor man PCs with mainly shooter focus.... and are already outmatched. Nintendo... while still doing its lovely unique thing ..... is selling like crap, because really peasants want PC gaming like experiences at the low-end.

Simple reality.... they are multiplat machines with a few exclusives every 2 years... that are barely ever the best of their genre compared to the multiplats.

I bet that's why pc has such long list of goty award winner games, right? Oh wait...

Actually it does , and this is 100% real and honest list , unlike the one that Xboxdone74 have created . In that list PS3 have 45 GOTY , here PC have 47 . Not to mention he also included E3 Game of the shows as GOTY .

whoever made this chart really scrapped the barrel clean. Kill Screen, City News, da fuck? lol

Lol , I find it funny that someone thought that by putting 5 platforms together and calling it "consoles" , then putting it against on platform PC will do the trick . Yet , PC is far ahead in the poll .

All these thread display is the utter ignorance of console only gamers.

"buh buh I've never heard of that game so I've no interest so it doesn't count" or simply tarring games as indie or saying entire genres don't count.

I particularly enjoyed the TC bring up GTA 5, how does that play on the PS4 or XB1? As for consoles "having indies too" congrats you've got what 6 or 7 combined in 6 months! You realised how many indie games get released for the PC each week?!?!

Last gen showed the nonsense of the PC having no games when it had more scored at GS (which didn't score any indie games pretty much for most of last gen and even when it did just a tiny tiny fraction of them).

Enjoy your niche games and begging for dem console games. With the passing of time consoles are getting more and more pc games (mostly indies anyway since that's all you guys) but there are less and less console games being ported to pc. So prepare those petitions for Destiny and the likes because if not your high end rig will only be useful to play Star Citizen, create lots of heat and waste tons of electricity to play games that look like they were made for the PS2.

As for games... Most PC games have longer legs. Look at FSX. MS dropped support for it back in 2010. Yet, people still buy it new in stores. It certainly has a huge community although none of them would be caught dead with the kiddies in most gaming forums. Even the pilot of that missing Malaysian jet was a big FSX afficionado.

That's not really a ringing endorsement.

And everytime there is a poll for Gameplay vs Graphics, Gameplay wins. But most celebrate graphics and resolution here. SW is full of shyte.

Yeah that's one of my favorites

Right? Its ok, SW. Just admit you are graphics whores, if you celebrate 1080p, and will rebuy a 1 year old game because of resolution upgrade.

Until you talk about liking an indie game like hotline miami, then lol indie games. Worthless 2D shit, spending money on expensive GPUs to play lame indie crap.

...of course, unless that indie game comes to your console of choice

Just Google MH370 pilot FSX. I've seen him around a number flight sim forums in the past.

Why? PC gaming is alive and well although the only attention it gets is usually when something bad happens. If it's not school shootings, it's aircraft crashing or being used as flying bombs.

Columbine, 9-11, this...... Even when news channels used the software in their own newscasts, they sure as hell don't even identify it.

at least you come up with decent excuse of why you prefer one unlike 90% of herms saying that PC gaming is superior just because. Because what if I like games like Persona or Marvel vs Capcom? Where are those games on PC? Nowhere!

So if PC's missing on so many games that I like then it can't be so superior like many delusional herms wants us to believe. And is not just missing on tons of games that I like but it will even miss on a ton of huge triple a games like like Destiny too! So the argument about superior PC multiplats it's invalid too because that's not always the case if the game's not ported.

Exactly, while the OP may be presented rather horribly there's been some good points raised by both sides.

I feel they both switch out places for me every few years or so, PC just hasn't been impressing me lately, hopefully that changes in the coming years.

It's still quite a boon to own both however, either way if you don't you miss out on games.

#136 Edited by NFJSupreme (5379 posts) -

If I had to pick one definitely pc. I love my consoles but I can do so much more with a pc. Console exclusives are hella overrated and honestly there are enough multiplats that you don't really miss them. I didn't play gta or tlou last year and I have a ps360. Was busy playing everything else on my computer. Honestly didn't even have the time. Picking up a new Moba is enough to eat up a month of your game time lol. So yeah pc. In the real world though I prefer to have both console and pc.

lol@the cliches! Roll out "niche" games now as the ones that don't count. I love how cows now are falling back on multiplats to defend their machines again. Did you enjoy the 2 or 3 years where you slammed lems for doing it in between the rest of the PS3 lifespan and now the PS4 is using it as its only lifeline? "Buh buh GTA and destiny!"

Unable to defend yourselves individually you now have to band together, use multiplats, games from last gen (why do you lot keep talking about GTAV??!) and still have to try to make it so genres, indies and "niche" games don't count to stand a chance! Priceless! lol

So the argument about superior PC multiplats it's invalid too because that's not always the case if the game's not ported.

Exactly, while the OP may be presented rather horribly there's been some good points raised by both sides.

I feel they both switch out places for me every few years or so, PC just hasn't been impressing me lately, hopefully that changes in the coming years.

It's still quite a boon to own both however, either way if you don't you miss out on games.

Whats been impressing you on consoles then? Cos I own a PS4, 360 and a Wii and there's been bugger all for me on any of them in ages.

PC always wins these votes, because it flat out is he best overall gaming device when done right.

1) Most high quality rated titles and the highest rate of exclusivity.

2) The 2 most influetial co-op and competitive genres in gaming are nearly completely exclusive to it (MMO's and MOBA/RTS).

3) It's indie and kickstarter scene is giving out gaming experiences that are otherwise dead....

4) Look at Sony and Microsoft.... most of their first part are bloody first person graphic whoring shooters... Sony is by far worse... as they care more about presentation/story than actual gameplay..... while microsoft has milked its trio dry....

Consoles are losing their identity..... the 2 "HD TWINS" so called are poor man PCs with mainly shooter focus.... and are already outmatched. Nintendo... while still doing its lovely unique thing ..... is selling like crap, because really peasants want PC gaming like experiences at the low-end.

Simple reality.... they are multiplat machines with a few exclusives every 2 years... that are barely ever the best of their genre compared to the multiplats.

I bet that's why pc has such long list of goty award winner games, right? Oh wait...

lol.... fanboys plastering a poll based opinion award with games that were above average worth playing within that time frame they were released. funny fact that I have more fun with a $10 game then the few GOTY awarded games.

Ignore it.... ever since the trolls of this bored have now made "GOTY's" the only defence against PC gaming... even the genuine peasants are resorting to it now.

Gue... you think the millions and millions playing the various exclusive big names on PC give a damn about a 2-3 journey game as some GOTY award? or the e-sport scene give a damn about 10 hour zombie shooter that does nothing but presentation?

as 04d says.... GOTY is a poll choice of all the top games... does not make other games lesser.

Anyone with a damn brain would look at this situation and go "well clearly having more high quality exclusives is better than a slightly voted better goty award bit with alot less quality titles" ... but ofcourse not on system wars....

I prefer PC. And thats not because of the graphics.. even do i love great graphics i dont care about graphics since gameplay trumps graphics.. I still play warcraft 3 to this day and it looks terrible

The reason i prefer pc is because console games are too short.. They focus way to much on movie style big budget impressions.. After 5-8 hours your $60 dollar game is beaten and you are wondering what next to play...

I dont have that problem on pc.. I prefer thinking/strategic games with the occasional single player experience. Most games are multiplats nowadays and my pc will put out better looking multiplat games than the ps4 or bone can. So screw consoles.. PC only.. I used to be a nintendo/ps fanboy.. But about 8 years ago i stopped playing consoles entirely and never had the interest to come back..

at least you come up with decent excuse of why you prefer one unlike 90% of herms saying that PC gaming is superior just because. Because what if I like games like Persona or Marvel vs Capcom? Where are those games on PC? Nowhere!

So if PC's missing on so many games that I like then it can't be so superior like many delusional herms wants us to believe. And is not just missing on tons of games that I like but it will even miss on a ton of huge triple a games like like Destiny too! So the argument about superior PC multiplats it's invalid too because that's not always the case if the game's not ported.

Says dellusional, goes on about his limit taste and preference.

I like all forms... there are very few genres I dislike (Fighters (except brawlers), Race Sim and sports) ...

Anyone can bloody cherry pick preferences.... suddenly you want to go against the stand SW rules of "Objectivity over subjectivity" now Gue? how convenient.

For the record... you can play every Persona game on the PC.

sooner or later herms will have to buy a console if they don't want to miss out on so many games that will not only shape and transform the industry but that will be fondly remembered for years to come like The Last of Us. I bet that's why herms are often so cranky. I mean, being jelly all the time changes you for the worse.

Just the games that have been announced, stuff w'ere expecting out of e3 tgs off the top of my head.

Especially beast souls, TLG, Lilly Bergamo, Level-5, hell even ff15 might be good. Then there's uncharted 4 and the order.

Just games and genre's that interest me more than strategy and sims. point and click adventure.

All these thread display is the utter ignorance of console only gamers.

"buh buh I've never heard of that game so I've no interest so it doesn't count" or simply tarring games as indie or saying entire genres don't count.

I particularly enjoyed the TC bring up GTA 5, how does that play on the PS4 or XB1? As for consoles "having indies too" congrats you've got what 6 or 7 combined in 6 months! You realised how many indie games get released for the PC each week?!?!

Last gen showed the nonsense of the PC having no games when it had more scored at GS (which didn't score any indie games pretty much for most of last gen and even when it did just a tiny tiny fraction of them).

Enjoy your niche games and begging for dem console games. With the passing of time consoles are getting more and more pc games (mostly indies anyway since that's all you guys) but there are less and less console games being ported to pc. So prepare those petitions for Destiny and the likes because if not your high end rig will only be useful to play Star Citizen, create lots of heat and waste tons of electricity to play games that look like they were made for the PS2.

lol@the cliches! Roll out "niche" games now as the ones that don't count. I love how cows now are falling back on multiplats to defend their machines again. Did you enjoy the 2 or 3 years where you slammed lems for doing it in between the rest of the PS3 lifespan and now the PS4 is using it as its only lifeline? "Buh buh GTA and destiny!"

Unable to defend yourselves individually you now have to band together, use multiplats, games from last gen (why do you lot keep talking about GTAV??!) and still have to try to make it so genres, indies and "niche" games don't count to stand a chance! Priceless! lol

This reminds of of consolite's attitudes towards Minecraft when it was PC only:

"LOL lego kids game, PC games are all indie .... console gamers buy real games"....

the irony that Minecraft is the number one played game on Xbox Live and probably PSN when it takes off (if not already)... over those precious sony and microsoft first party games that get dumped after a week.

'fondly remembered for years to come'

you have to admit, that's quite an achievement for a game that's been out less than a year. (the achievement i refer to is the level of damage control from a playstation fanboy)

Wich explains why consolites are so spiteful whenever they talk about PC gaming and hermits

In all honesty, you make it sound like anything that isn't AAA console exclusive is the worst thing ever, same with playing niche games

Btw, in all my life as a gamer I have yet to buy a console, and I have yet to be given a reason to care about the last of us, I play games, not awards
