Look at what the PC can do. Just look. And keep in mind that they ran this at a 40 fps average.http://www.pcgamer.com/2012/11/19/skyrim-graphics-mods/

Stay mad console kiddies, stay mad.

So you can put all those more on and have the game run like sh!t. The link you posted said the lush grass causes frames to stay around 5FPS. I actually like to play games, not be a virtual photographer

A PC needed to run that smoothly is more than triple what current gen consoles cost

The lush grass mod used for those screens isn't the same one that you and I have. The article states that one is a work in progress and is not available yet.

Skyrim isn't the most technical thing out there. Its middish to high at best.

You wouldn't need a too powerful PC to max it.

Still though consoles are far from "paperweights" because of their ease of use and their prices are still cheaper than most rigs.

Troll harder good sir.

No, you can still.....ummm.....BLEND THEM!

But seriously, it's easy to reason why those who belong to the 'other side' have made the choice they made.

It's easier if you are really lazy, some people don't care that much about graphics, you don't have to worry about system requirements, and of course the kicker is the fact that some stupid devs/pubs still don't release their games on the pc. Heck there are whole franchises which haven't seen the light of the glorious heaven that is pc gaming.

Yep. If they were we would be screwed and extremely bored of games by now.

Oh and meet the pyro was just great :D. My favorite is meet the spy personally (also happen to be one of those very high hour spies but that didn't effect my thoughts on it).

25fps, 600p resolution, eye-watering jaggies, crappy textures and lots of blur are really breaking the enjoyment for me. This is the sole reason why I switched to PC.

Console versions of Skyrim also only have 2 hotkeys so you're constantly stuck going through menus if you want to change you weapons, bows, shields, or magic. Even with 10 on PC, I still feel limited. Playing with two would be awful.

The base version is limited but there are mods to fix that too

I'd start PC gaming but I don't have time to create a giant, ego inlating, over compensating, Spec Sig for my GS account. So I'll just stick with consoles instead.

Wait a sec... if PC gaming is cheaper long-term due to Steam sales, free to play games, and the like, then doesn't that contradict the whole peasant narrative?

Yes, but alot of people dont think long term and dont spend wisely or save up, they also dont try to get the best deals and mostly just go for whatever is the easiest to access

I disagree.

But I will say that PC gaming has certainly usurped consoles as my gaming platform of choice these days (although Halo 4 and Forza Horizon keep me going back to my 360 as of late).
