The PC is best for MMOs, Strategy games and FPS games, and the occasional multi-platform game. There are only a handful of real indie gems, the best of which are also on consoles.

On a PC I cannot play the latest Zelda, Metroid, Super Mario, Smash Bros., Pokémon, Uncharted, The Last of Us, Journey, Pikmin, LittleBigPlanet, Ni no Kuni, Final Fantasy, Metal Gear, Okami or Team ICO game.

i.e. I cannot play some of the best that gaming has to offer on the PC or a single console alone.

Mumbo? Perhaps. Jumbo? Perhaps not.

That's why most PC gamers own one or two consoles, usually a PS3 and/or Wii.

That doesn't mean we can't complain about the nasty graphics and sub 30 FPS.

About playing those games on a PC...well, I won't go into details about that, but it is entirely possible.

Also, that isn't really directly because of actual gaming on a PC. That's more related to support from developers for the platform, which is capable of doing everything the consoles can but better, including every game you listed.

You cannot play those on the PC but others can.
#5TimePharaohPosted 9/12/2013 3:22:20 AM(edited)
And why would I want to play the latest of those? But I actually can play the vast majority of all of those franchises, and things like Okami, in better quality than you can, so....

You assume that these games are worth playing when you could be playing a PC game instead.

You are wrong.

Final Fantasy XIV is the latest release for Final Fantasy, and it's on PC.

Try harder.

So, we have an assortment of mediocre trash and franchises long past their prime that are representing the bulk of the "best gaming has to offer".

How sad.
