Generally most fighting games are better on consoles.


100% false? Name some.

Better as in there's more and more people yes, but the game itself being better? Nope.avi

I've never played a fighting game on PC, but I figure it would play just as well as on consoles.

Shooters are so much better on PC though, I don't know if I can ever go back to playing Rage on my 360.

Never played a fighting game on PC but can't people just cheat easily using macros? Not sure if that's an issue or not.

And I played the PC version of Bioshock 2 and it did give me quite a bit of problems. One solution to fix the constant crashes was to set the graphics to medium, which looked far far worse than on console. So that's definitely one game that's better on consoles.

There are only two I can think of offhand where the console game itself is better, rather than being a bad port on the PC.

James Bond 007: Nightfire, is better on console than on the PC, since on the console it has vehicle levels too, some of which are nice. Others aren't much good, and it's not a great game anyway, so PC owners aren't missing out on much really.

Serious Sam - the XBox (original XBox) version is slightly different from the PC version in that it has a lives system now (if you run out of lives it's game over, but you do get extra lives as you progress through the game), which, combined with you having an in-game points score makes the game feel more fun. Not a big thing, and maybe there's a fan-made mod for the PC that adds the same thing, but it's nice. The XBox version also contains both the PC version, and the PC version's add-on pack (The Second Encounter) for free, which is good, but of course you can always buy both together for the PC, negating this console advantage.

A few I can think of, but more because of preference and not definite advantages:

Bioshock 2 - No weapon/plasmid wheel on PC version, and no gamepad support
Minecraft - Crafting system sucks on PC and is based on memorizing wikis, Xbox crafting system is awesome
Dragon Age: Origins - Completely different control style on PC, no gamepad support

Completely agree on minecraft crafring system especially if you are on the go or you are really new to the game (had to get an app to check for info or get my tablet/phone ready). All in all I would prefer the PC version due to the limitations of the 360 version. I do have more peace of mind on the 360 where I could reload a previous save so I would not lose an item though it could be remedied by some commands on the pc.

As for Dragon Age Origins, I see no need for the controller support on the pc due to the game not being an action oriented one and the limitations of the number of skills you could quickly use especially when you are a mage and you have tons of spells.
