1. it doesnt get AAA games (Destiny, GTAV, etc)

2. In term of sale number, PC version sells the worst for multiplatform games

3. PC version comes later than console version (Dark Souls, MGR, etc)

All good, viable questions.

Being a Console Caesar...it's hard to comprehend, and rationalize such problems.

Your first and third points are mere instances, rather than the norm. Your second points requires quite a bit of evidence.

Revenge of the peasants!

This is something I've been pointing out for years TC but Stevo always came up with his shady charts to make the herms feel better. So yeah, PC has more high scoring exclusives than all the consoles combined according to gamespot but when you actually take a look at the games you're like... Wow, a bunch of crappy indie games or F2P that can't even be compared to the indies on consoles like Journey that won multiple GOTY. It makes no sense.

Scores would be the least ambiguous way of determining the ranking for games. Hence, that's the system we use.

  1. It gets a lot of AAA games that consoles get, don't cherry pick.
  2. Have some numbers to back up this ass-pulling?
  3. Not always, and those versions are usually superior.

This entire discussion is based on multiplatform games. You didn't even consider the hundreds of AA and AAA exclusive games PC gets every generation. While consoles struggle to get 25.

PC is more like second-tier platform.

IF developers want to squeeze extra profit, they make PC version. That's why big profitable games like Destiny and GTAV don't bother with PC, since they already make a lot of money with console.

Oh, the piracy....

Fine..

Unless you don't have a reliable standard to compare that clock with, it is useless to consider this fact that the clock might be right 2 times. Clock is a measurement instrument with which you measure something else, so if you wan't to verify it you need another clock which works 100% correct. We measure time by the movements of the Sun, but really time is a forward motion never to be the same again.

We measure time by the movements of the Sun, but really time is a forward motion never to be the same again.

I said intelligent, not verbal diarrhea.

If we compare our stopped clock with one that only shows hours, we could conclude that it's correct twice a day, or one-twelfth of the time. If our reference clock also shows minutes, we'd conclude that it's still correct twice a day, but only one-720'th of the time. If it shows seconds it's still correct twice but only one-43,200th of the time. Well, you get the point. If we have a cesium clock that can measure millionths of a second ...

As the denominator in our rate approaches infinity, the time period of theoretical clock-correctness approaches a limit of zero, and eventually becomes a practical non-event, though this non-event still happens twice a day. (By the way, to verify that your reference clock is "100% correct" you would need another reference clock, etc...)

Sure, "others can be right sometimes." And to others, we're the "others." By chance, we could be right sometimes, too. I think others are right most of the time; at least right for themselves. And we and the others can both be right, even when we disagree. What we're mostly not right about is that others aren't right.

Some console players understand how PC gaming works and I respect their choices. Then we have the gamers who just scream "hur hur hur exclusives GOTY GTA V PC BEGGERS" on internet boards all day.

PC : Wait for better versions

Consoles : Wait for worse versions

Then there are other advantages too that consoles can only dream of ; mods , backward compatibility , more games , better graphics , better performance , cheaper games and so on . Owning a system to play 3 good games entire generation is not worth it . That's why "Master Race" (BTW no need to feel insecure about it , it is just a joke that started from Witcher review)

Not to mention the 1 month or so of waiting usually entails a much higher quality game that runs at any Frame Rate and Resolution. See Dark Souls 2 that just came out...
