Why do PC gamers strict themselves to PC-only?

Time.

I work 8 hours a day and I'm out of the house 12 hours a day. I have 1 to 1.5 hours to play video games.

With that small amount of time I don't need another system. By the time I've beaten the current game I'm playing a few times the next game I want is already coming down the pipeline.

There are thousands of video games on PC. Dozens get released every month. There is simply no time to play everything that I'm interested in.

That and the whole "AAA" mentality that consoles have turns me away. I dislike my games becoming a service. I want my games to be games.

Elitism. Misguided sense of elitism, but elitism nonetheless.


PCs are indisputably the elite platform.

4x higher framerates, 10x higher fidelity, infinitely faster loadtimes, more complex games, mods

come to reality, it can be scary, but hiding from it is cowardice.

I used to be a former Nintendo fanboy, but now I'm a PC only gamer. Most of the decent games are multiplatform now (Sonic Racing, Bioshock Infinite, Tomb Raider, etc), and none of the exclusives on the PS4 or 360 interests me at all. Besides, PC has more exclusive content than any other console out there. The PC is pretty much the platform for my favorite genre (Western RPGs).

I may get a WiiU someday, but.......not until it gets more game, or just a new F Zero game.

I wonder if TimePharoah got molested as a child by a console player.


Why would a king ever be rolling around in a pig pen? That's just silly.

I buy a console if it gets enough exclusives. But I already own a pc and prefer to use it -why? Not broke, no fixing needed.

I would not say that this is the case for everybody, I enjoy games on both console and PC. The main thing going for the PC for me is the superiority of all FPS's due the the amount of control with a mouse. Consoles will never match FPS's on the PC, controllers are just far too clunky.


Definitely, I used to be really good with a controller but you have to practice all the time, if you skip a week or 2, you lose the feel for it.

Although I don't play many FPS games, PC's are better for them and for MMO's I think. Oh and definitely for RTS.


I've never had that problem with a controller O_o. Maybe it's because I grew up with the NES/SNES, but controllers have always felt comfortable to me. Only one I can think of that takes time to adjust to is the N64.

Because my PC can effectively be ANY console I want it to be.


How, exactly, can it be a 360/PS3/Wii U?

Don't feel like wasting money on systems I'll barely play. There are very few exclusives I care about. The only ones I'd even consider going for right now is the Wii U and that's mainly for the newest SSB. Considering how the last Zelda was designed to hold your hand (or grasp it tight and not let go), I'm not sure I'm even looking forward to that anymore.
