Seems there is a general consensus that skipping PS3 would be missing the most. That is not surprising, but I'm a bit surprised that Wii is last and PC has 29%. What PC game would you miss during last gen except for Starcraft 2, Dota 2, MMORPGs (most of which were fiasco) and maybe a few half baked ports of console games?

On the other hand skipping Wii means skipping some really amazing gaming experiences with huge money and some of the industry's best minds invested.

PC shouldn't be included in the poll because PC is not tied to any gen

They are sort of tied to console gens because they compete with consoles on the market. Lets just count the games that were released during the PS360Wii gen.

Oh and they are also tied to my gen, because I'm part of the gen that started gaming on PCs when first PC games emerged. :)

Uh you know games started on computer a long long time ago.....how old are you?

If you count PC only (not Atari, Amiga, ZX Spectrum or other computers), its actually younger than NES as far as I remember. My earliest gaming memories are about a ZX Spectrum my dad owned in cca 87 and then I clearly remember playing Prince of Persia and Dungeon Master when those games were the shiny new sh1t. ;-)

I am not going to buy it just to have the remastered version, but if I didn't have a PS3 or a haven't played TLOU yet, I would buy it day one. It is arguably the best game of last generation afterall.

I might pick Alien: Isolation on launch.

PS4 out of consoles, cutting edge PC overall.

Consoles actually make it possible to make a graphically demanding game for PC. PC sales wouldn't justify that. See PC exclusives and their graphical inferiority compared to multiplats for reference.

-Looks at games released as PC exclusives ;

Crysis , Crysis Warhead , Witcher 2 , Half Life 2 , Shogun 2 .

And upcoming games ;

Star Citizen , Dreadnought , Unreal Tournament ,

Hmmm , riiiiight .

You gave us opinions, we gave you PC exclusives at the time that had better gfx than anything on consoles.

Please shut the fuck up. Star Citizen, Elite, and Dreadnaught continue that trend. PC has the best gfx every gen. Deal with it.

Whatever helps you sleep at night.

Come on, you got nothing but Crysis.

Witcher 2 doesn't look that good and I can max it out on my mid-tier laptop, nothing is particularly demanding about it if you dont turn on the broken option that makes it unplayable regardless of HW.

Half-Life 2... really? You tried to name 5 (in words: five) PC exclusives that look good and one of them has to be 10 (in words: ten) years old?

Shogun 2 doesn't look any special.

Star Citizen might well be a vaporware or epic failure, Dreadnought looks worse than already released console games, Unreal Tournament has not been cutting edge in terms of graphics since 1999.

And then, there is Crysis. That is the one game that was designed specifically to use cutting edge PCs to their limit (and it indeed was a spectacle). It was released 7 years ago, but because noone released anything that would use the potential of cutting edge PCs ever since, desperate graphic addicts still mention it even in 2014.
