So BF3's patch got delayed for the PC and the Xbox 360 and is coming out on the PC next week. A small setback but nothing to bad right? Wrong apparently.
DICE's community for BF3 has basically been a summery of what has happened to PC gaming in the past several years. If anybody were to argue for what is killing PC exclusives, it's simply the community.
This was the response by the BF3 community.
Nothing but garbage and it's been going on all afternoon. What happened to PC gamers being more mature? Nope, those days are over it seems. Yes, BF3 hasn't been the savior of PC gaming and has been kind of a letdown, but this is the response DICE gets.
Honestly, this is the community that EVERY PC developer has to work with. As soon as the word "console" get thrown into a game's discussion the community turns into bumbling idiots about how the game is dumbed down and all of that jazz. Why would any developer want to develop exclusively for these people?
The simple fact is they don't like to. I'm really fed up with the PC gaming community. Almost every single game forums I see on the internet are spammed with people saying that every game is consolized because of CoD. You can find it on any forum for any major PC game.
I know that PC gaming isn't "dying" per-say, but this kind of crap is ruining it for us. What exactly as a community can we do? I doubt DICE will ever bother with a PC version again when this is the reaction they get when things don't get perfectly the way that PC gamers want it.
I've never seen a more childish community. I will take the 12 year old mic spamming racists on XBL while playing MW3 over that community and many of the communities I've seen on the PC lately.
What do you all think? Please tell me I'm not crazy in my beliefs. I know you've all seen this kind of behavior from PC gaming communities who think they are suprior to that of the console gamers. From where I'm sitting, this is just embarrasing.
