Are graphics worth playing in a small community with late ports?

Would I be considered a "graphics whore" if I preferred to wait for games to be ported 2 years later (like Mortal Kombat), instead of playing the biggest games now (like GTA V)?

Not really. Waiting also gives devs time to work on patching games, fixing balance and developing DLC content. Though, in the case of fighting games, there's no real reason to go for PC. As long as the consoles can deliver 60 FPS, you're good. Only real reason for a PC version is if it's on sale for much less, like SFxT was this weekend, or if it has a better netcode, like Skullgirls.

Once we perfect building Mechs, I expect there to be a factory in Mexico pumping out a brand call Mechsican. I wanna buy me a Mechsican.

Would you say missing GTA V and Red Dead is worth it?

I've never played any of the Red Dead games and I am perfectly content with that. And I played through GTAIV on my 360, have yet to give in to this madness where everybody seems to crave GTAV. Patience is easy, when there's so many other options to choose from.

^This and I'm balls deep in planetside 2, which your puny consoles will be unable to cope with until the PS4 comes out. Mwah ha ha.

That and ARMA 3, ARMA 3 is fantastic, so is Mechwarrior online and Heroes and Generals is shaping up to be quite nice too. yeah so there's those and Europa Universalis and CIV V for my strategy fix, not to mention about 25 years worth of backwards compatibility for all the games I have ever bought are still playable today.

brb both consoles (separately) have twice the community size of battlefield 3 (the PC's crown jewel) with none of the hacking. 10,000 players are online in the puny PC ghost town.


@Snuckie: try harder. calling out my post count? lol. so now i have to be a no-lifer who lives on message boards? k..
