Just because you bought a gaming PC doesn't mean you have to act like an elitist douchebag.

That's not just consoles, it's been happening on PC for a while now.

Pay to play demos, seems half the games on Steam are now Pay 2 Play for Alpha version of the game. Graphics are also nerfed, Micro transactions been part of PC gaming for a decade now, stable internet required and subscription based service to play old games, well, that's World of Warcraft right there, lol.


That makes consoles and PCs on the same level playing field then?


With issues, yes. 99% of all AAA games are multiplats on PC, which carries the same DLC issues, etc.

The issues you listed also affect PC games also, that's all I'm saying. You can post that exact list on PCH and it would be accurate except the hard drive space issue. See, your problem Jedi is, you're more or less a sheep. You can't just pick a side, you have to be biased on your platform of choice. PC gaming suffers the same as console games, since majority of PC games are ports from consoles.

Except the ports carry issues of sloppy ports, optimized and a lot of times, other than higher resolutions, you still get the same crappy textures as consoles.


Wow the day has come I agree with Xeeh_Bitz....


PC is just as f'ed up as consoles, heck some games are starting to be the same price as on consoles and that w/o licensing fees (Steam takes a cut though).

On PC 90%+ of the games have DRM, no reselling or buying 2nd hand, Steam pretty much has a monopoly,...

Publishers have realized most gamers are junkies who have no willpower. Time to milk the industry for all its worth.

Agree. now more than ever. Consoles are killing games while empowering greedy execs to get away with more moves. (Tomb Raider for ex).

I agree with both of you guys. People are willing to buy these season passes because "they can afford it", but don't realise how much these companies are now taking advantage of them. Imagine if you bought a season pass + every game full price, imagine the thousands of dollars you're out of pocket in only a few years.

When Microsoft, Sony and Nintendo turn the servers off for these consoles, it's same people suddenly saying "Well I had fun playing them and I won't play them again." A lot of gamers are so delusional these days, but I see it for what it is.
