Yes. Still not that great.

Anyways nothing can replace the abysmal launch. 

RO2 was a disappointment on every single level. It couldn't capture the intensity of RO1 at all.

Didnt it's already small community die pretty fast?

Well... its community never died in the first place. Secondly, its community increased after the mod kit was released and the steam workshop support added.

It´s a unque multiplayer shooter that mixes Battlefield (big maps, rush mode, 64 players) and Call of Duty (infantry-based combat) gameplays, furthermore it adds realistic weapon behaviour plus it takes into account body wounds.

The server to play in US is called Tactical Realism. It can be found through in-game server browser.

According to steam it has a peak of like 1000 players. And from the sound of it, it was pretty broken on launch

It´s a niche game. The launch issues were fixed long ago. RO2 community is one of the best. Everything is organized; a team leader is giving orders and manages artillery strikes. People actually talk communicate to each other with a built in team speak. There is a constant communication. 

There was a free weekend of RO2. Everyone should try it at least. The game is awesome.

1000 players or less seems pretty dead.  And its still not one of the best multiplayer FPS games of this gen

Good list. That said, the genres of most of those games is why I was never interested in PC gaming.

I think the PC is the only system that you can actually say hosts a good assortment of games in every single genre.

I mean his list is a top 20, and you can see even many PC gamers disagree with it too. Meanwhile 18 games released on Steam in the last week.

20 games can in no way represent the PC no matter what the games are. There's just too many games out there.

I'm enjoying my gaming PC mainly due to the power of the platform, mods, and crazy cheap game deals. I'm definitely not enjoying it for the exclusives as the vast majority of games I own are multiplats, which isn't the case for most consoles I own. I have 3 exclusives installed right now, one of which is planetside 2. I personally think its pretty meh. The game has potential but just feels utterly pointless as is. I spend more time looking for a fun battle than having it.

I'm a PC gamer, but not for any of those games. I don't really care for strategy games, MMOs, and low budget indie games. I'd rather spend my limited gaming time on games with high quality gameplay AND narrative and graphics and atmosphere. This kind of experience is mostly found in console exclusives and big budget multiplatform games.

Oh right, so movie games gotcha. This trend of console gamers like casual blockbusters that don't make you think while playing is becoming more and more common. Yet these same people will mock "casuals" that play phone games ect as inferior. Well, in terms of system wars console gamers are the definition of casual. bar fighters there is barely any competitive complexity. Most of the games in his list have a HEAVY enphasis on specialized gameplay. most blockbusters have nothing of the sort.

BS. There is a big difference between phone games and the types of games I am talking about. Games like The Witcher 2, Deus Ex Human Revolution, Tomb Raider, Dishonored, Mirror's Edge, Uncharted, God of War, Demon's Souls, Halo, Far Cry 3...etc.

The games he listed have gameplay that fits into specific genres and I fully understand that some people really enjoy those games. I'm just saying that personally they don't have the full range of qualities that I look for in a game. If all I wanted was a brain workout I would simply play chess or something.

It's not that I don't want challenge or gameplay complexity in my games, it's just that I like for there to be a sense of atmosphere and place and character.

See, this is how I feel as well. I just don't think the PC has very many appealing exclusives.

If I had an unlimited amount of time in my life I am sure I would play and enjoy more of those games, but when time is limited I would rather spend my time on other games.

[QUOTE="MBirdy88"][QUOTE="jhonMalcovich"]

For example ?

TheWalkingGhost

Dont bother, hipster GS Posters. Most of your list are the most popular. most played, most loved PC Games out there, alot of which are unique to the platform and pretty much most of those franchises are more played than every single console game franchise except CoD (and in some cases Halo). This forum likes to talk tough but its far from reality.

Translation, you are butthurt because somebody dares have an opinion different from yours? Got it. Other posters have already posted many titles not on there. Get over yourself buddy.

...You're the one who said that his opinions were bad in the first place.

#311 Posted by TheWalkingGhost (5481 posts) -

[QUOTE="TheWalkingGhost"][QUOTE="NEWMAHAY"]Didn't know Arma 3 was outjhonMalcovich

A beta is....For $40........*snicker*

First of all, 40$ for an alpha version, not beta. Secondly, once you paid 40$, your version will be continously updated until becoming a fully released game. It´s for enthusiasts who can´t wait to play Arma 3, certainly not like you.

Congratulations on being a moronic troll. :roll: Thank you Mr. Grammar Nazi and making assumptions.

[QUOTE="TheWalkingGhost"][QUOTE="jhonMalcovich"]

What other posters suggested were multiplats or exclusives that have equivalents on console side.  I would gladly include Witcher in the list, for example, but Witcher 2 is available for  xbox as well. Still you didn´t suggest anything.

clyde46
I put up Diablo and then you say I suggest nothing? Ok, I see what you are doing.

A lot of console players pre-order a game to get early access to a beta...

Ok....And what does that have to with anything?

:lol: Nice. I was taking a joking jab at him and stating in my opinion there are games on his list that sucked and some that are better. FYI, just because somebody has an opinion, doesn't mean you have to agree with it.

I was pretty surprised when I built my pc and went to look for all the amazing PC exclusives, only to find that they didn't exist unless I wanted to play indie games, strategy games, or MMOs.

Death to Spies 1 was fantastic. Other then that, not a huge fan of any of those games. Starcraft II was dissapointing IMO and ArmA I've never liked.

I do however love Amnesia. So, all in all, Death to Spies 1 and Amnesia. The rest I really just have no interest in; RTS and Sim junkies would love them though I suppose.

Jankarcop
Here's the problem with that statement: the 360 and PS3 are near-perfect substitutes for one another (differentiated only by exclusives and small differences in total cost of ownership). They have pretty neatly divided their market segment in half between themselves, whereas the Wii is targeted at a different market segment altogether. Likewise, the consoles really aren't a substitute good for the PC, nor is the PC a substitute good for either console. For the other side of the coin, look at the Mac. As a substitute good for a Windows-based PC, it's lumped in with the PC rather than dividing the market segment for purposes of discussion. When comparing console and PC gaming, please defend why it makes more sense to look at subsets of the market segment rather than comparing and contrasting the segment as a whole.

Oh man, I forgot about Stalker. Neat game, but largely a glitchy mess. The only thing it did well was atmosphere. GSC gameworld sucked. It was the community that made the game good.
