Well, when someone starts with "ooooh, PC gaming is DAED lololol", that's what you're gonna get.

And console gamers have an inferiority complex since they make threads questioning the "master race" joke and making a personal vendetta against PC gamers... I mean how dare PC gamers be vocal about how much they love their platform over consoles?

I mean console gamers are comparing people doing the "master race" joke with actual genocide

You did say we get better graphics, but you forgot: smoother framerates, more exclusives, emulators and the greatest application that is Steam.

And I have to agree with my buddy Vlad, who wants to be in a car with a peasant? no one.

Tell me something, where is GTA V for PC?

Tell me something, where is DOTA 2 for PS4/Xbone/Wii U?

Where is Rome: Total War 2 for PS4/Xbone/Wii U?

Where is Half-Life 2 for Xbone/PS4/Wii U?

Where is Super Mario 3D World for PC/PS4/Xbone?

Where is Uncharted 3 for PC/Wii U/Xbone?

Where is Pokemon for PSVita?

Your statement is asinine.

They arent. It was just a meme that went too far over PC fanboys heads. I hope they actually dont believe they are superior to console gamers because of the platform they chose to play on. That would be very very sad. I wonder how these so called "superior race" look irl. Most would be highly disappointed

I enjoy my pc but on the exclusives front I haven't been impressed in a long time.

It's my multiplat machine first and foremost, also porn but really even the WiiU can supply that now.

@SolidGame_basic: you sound jelly. Pc are masters because they are in complete control of their gaming experience while consolites are slaves to Sony, Nintendo, or Microsoft. Pc gamers play on what they want to play, however ever they want to play, at whatever performance and fidelity their budget allows. While console gamers are dependent on whatever one of the big three tells them they should be playing on according to their budget not yours. When you are dependent on someone or something you are not a master but a slave. Pc gamers are masters of their own gaming lives so are therefore the "master race". get off one of the big threes teet if you want to become a master.

@SolidGame_basic: Then you could just mention Halo 4 and Metal Gear Solid 4

If you are going to argue using games, don't use games that are not even out yet, because neither you nor I have played them yet, when they come out, feel free to come in and say "PC doesn't have destiny or MGS 5", but until they come out, these games are nonexistant

1. Because we get to play games the way the developer intended

2. We don't pay any attention to scores and still play a game because we like the look of it and but because a review told us it's good.

3. We don't think that any game that scores less then a 9 is a flop

4. We tend to have more mature brothers and sisters who don't troll as much as consolites do.

Sure they get better graphics, but they don't necessarily get better games. You can't play console exclusives which are developed by the some of the best studios in the world. In terms of the medium, consoles push gameplay and storytelling, PCs push the next hardware. And with next gen consoles here, the graphical advantage is not what is used to be. Also, next gen consoles are quickly becoming the home to many indie games, so PC doesn't even have that anymore. And lastly, who wants to buy a desktop these days unless you really need to? So can we finally agree that the PC master race is no more?

1. We are the "master race" because angry and trolling consolites actually coined that term, we ran with it to keep them salty.

2. PC, has over console

  • More high scoring games. More high scoring exclusives. So your game and studio argument was factually wrong.
  • Better gfx as you said.
  • Vastly better performance.
  • Better version of most games, aka multiplats.
  • Competitive gaming and e-sports. Higher skill cap games.
  • More genres.
  • More Devs.
  • Always creating new genres and gameplay styles which consoles try emulate. (Oculus VR, Minecraft, MOBA, Amnesia style Horror, DayZ style Survival)

Neither of that was opinions, I'm using scores from GS and MC and multiplat comparisons from DigitalFoundry....

Please explain which of those facets was opinion.

well your preference is fine... if you don't like LoL/DoTA/WoW or other MMOs .... your gonna have a hard time in that department. or World of Tanks / Diablo / Hearthstone ect.

But there is no denying these games are bigger than any particular console game in longetivity/fan base .... yea a mario kart game will sell 20 million... but how many people play them at peak years later at increasing rates?

Tastes are an issue.... I don't see barely any console-only games that are:

1) Competitive/Depth/Complex to the point where they are played for 10 plus years in droves like the above.

2) Stray out of the mostly single-player action genres.... most of the console GOTYs have been short flashy experiences.

so yea, what games do you want on consoles?

AT the end of the day all consolites have are a couple of exclusives that is it. Even the price advantage is gone for the peasants who game at 1080p.

PC's get more than better graphics and framerates. They also practically own the strategy genres and they tend to have lesser known games that push boundaries and stray from the mainstream norm. A perfect example is Mount & Blade: Warband, a game with a complicated, deep combat system that no console peasant would ever have the patience for. DayZ falls into this category as well.

PC gamers are the master race because we're smart and skilled enough to play games that don't always hold your hand and have piss simple gameplay mechanics.

pc gamers themselves arent a master race, the majority of them are pretty dense, just look at this forum. Almost none of them understand the basics of the graphics terminology they love to throw around in debates v console games. They are all awful at games in general, thats why they stick to simple single player games like "the legendary tex murphey series".

Very rarely do I see a PS/XBOX/Wii gamer call himself "superior" because of his preference. And even those rare times are mostly for trolling. Hermits however, it seems they trully believe they are superior in some form. I like to think they're mostly trolling, but nowadays I dont even know anymore. Looks at users such as Sniper or Zeeshainder for ex... *shivers*

I thought this "PC gaming is dead" nonsense died some time ago. Well, some idiot now and then proves otherwise.

I'm really amazed at the assumptions before have made. I never said PC gaming is dead. But the idea that it's a master race? Well, I need more convincing.

I'm primarily a PC gamer and I never considered myself a "master race". The truth is, almost every PC gamer out there owns a console also, ergo, is a console gamer too.

I have no idea who invented this "master race" crap. I for one sure ain't part of it.

I respect you! My comments about PC gamers on here do not include you. It's the ones that come on here and act like they're the greatest and put down topics people make that state facts about consoles and put down consoles for not having as high of FPS & resolutions as PC.
