That's true (except for exclusives), but updating your PC every year is too much of a pain for it to be even worth it, in my opinion. Stupid amount of money.


First, the PC has far better exclusives than Nintendo. Look at the exclusives comparison for this gen for example (link below). And unlike Nintendo, there's tons a new ideas and gameplay elements in those exclusives. Moreover, it doesn't cost anywhere near as much as you think to maintain a gaming PC and you most certainly don't have to upgrade every year.

Nintendo gets my vote for exclusives, but in terms of hardware and online the pc is far and away superior.

They definitely have great exclusives, just not as good as Nintendo's.

And you picked 3 great Sony exclusives and compared them to 2 lame Nintendo exclusives. Don't act like Sony doesn't have any lame exclusives like Wii Fit and Wii Music.


This isn't the 90's anymore though. Nintendo exclusives are just rehashes of old SNES/N64 games and really not much else. It's all stuff we've played dozens of times before so I'd say Nintendo easily has the worst exclusives out of the 3 consoles.

5 of Nintendo's games are in the top 10 highest rated games of all time. 3 of them are the top 3, and 3 of them were made in the last decade., not the 90's

Phone games can score well because most review sites score them separately from games on other platforms. In other words, the standards for phone games are much lower so even mediocre games can score well. On the other hand, standards for PC games are generally higher than they are for consoles, so if anything, those PC scores should be a little higher to properly compare them to consoles.

As for PC exclusives, here's a quick overview of games coming out in 2013 (a couple of months old though).

It easily devastates all 3 consoles combined. And that's not even including all of the mods and free content you can get for PC. You can see some good lists of PC exclusives for years past here:

And here's a list I made off the top of my head for 2012. This only includes games that I've played and only games that I considered good. A complete list would be absolutely massive.

Faster Than Light
Tribes: Ascend
Diablo 3
Planetside 2
Civ 5: Gods and Kings (massive expansion)
Guild Wars 2
Torchlight 2
Crusader Kings 2
Risen 2: Dark Waters
Natural Selection 2
War of the Roses
Chivalry: Medieval Warfare
Miasmata
Mount and Blade: Napoleonic Wars
Dear Esther
Total War: Shogun 2 - Fall of the Samurai
Sins of a Solar Empire: Rebellion

I specifically said Uncharted, LittleBigPlanet, and inFamous because they were some of the new IPs made by Sony on PS3. Those Wii games I listed were some of the new IPs that Nintendo made in the same period, see that now?


Those IPs weren't even made by Sony. They were made by Naughty Dog, Sucker Punch, and Media Molecule. >_>

But that's besides the point, it's really not fair to say that Nintendo doesn't have good exclusives just because their franchises are old. And by old, I don't mean "old" as in getting boring, I mean as in being out for a long time.

Video games are awesome.

And the fact that GTA4 is on that list pretty much kills your argument. Unfortunately, reviewers often don't care if a game feels new and fresh. So even if it's a carbon copy of earlier games in the franchise, it can still score absurdly high. Either way, the PC completely dominated this gen in terms of exclusives - both in terms of quality and quantity. And again, that comparison I posted doesn't even include free mods and content exclusive to PC.

MS for online experience? What? It's laggy and it costs way too much and it's covered in ads. The 360 sucks for online.

Lol what?!

Sony has only had one beast of a console in their history. If anything...Nintendo would be hardware. Every system of theirs has been a beast with the exception of the Wii and possibly the Wii U.
