Meanwhile, in reality...

The PC has more games in the first four letters of the alphabet than the entire Xbox 360 platform, if you look at how many games are listed for both platforms here on GameFAQs.


yeah but to Xbox's defense, it isn't like PC gaming hasn't been around for 20 somewhad years either for windows.

PC does have more games, of course quality before quantity so the only fair way to view those PC exclusives is using this wonderful site

http://www.metacritic.com/browse/games/score/metascore/all/pc?view=condensed&sort=desc


Of course going by that site, its been years since PC got anything great

It is really funny when they say that though, mostly because it sets me up to post this:

which shuts them up right quick, and that's always lulzy.

I don't care what they might be referring to. Artificially excluding one of the benefits of PC just because consoles can't compare to it is ridiculous. I cannot go back and play the Gamecube version of Super Mario Tennis on my Wii - . I cannot go back and play original Xbox games on a 360. I *can* typically go back and play games like Quake, Roller Coaster Tycoon, Giants: Citizen Kabuto, Sacrifice, etc. on my computer, even tho they were from that generation or even earlier.

You might as well claim it's unfair to compare an 18-wheeler to a pickup truck based on the amount each can carry. The ability to haul a lot is one of the *advantages* of an 18-wheeler, and it's stupid to discount that.

You absolutely do have to care about what they're referring to. It's entirely reasonable to discount that advantages that you won't make much use of. Would you buy an 18-wheeler? No? Why not? Cause you won't make much use of it. It doesn't matter that the 18-wheeler can objectively perform better if you don't want to carry that much.

Same thing with the people who say "PC has no games". It doesn't matter to them if the PC can play Wolfenstein and all those old games if they're don't care about being able to play those games.

Newsflash: most people care only about newer games. People have a limited number of hours in a day and new games are constantly coming out, so when given the choice, most people would rather play games from the past few years rather than the past few decades. (inb4 some anecdotal story about how *you* play old games all the time, meaning *everybody* must be like you!)

-CJF- is right.

Trouble with this post is that the premise (what I assume the premise is, anyways) is demonstrably wrong. PC is getting games and that can't be denied.
