Other people's preferences suck.

Modern PC gamers are like Jehovah's witnesses. They keep knocking on doors to remind the world they still exist.


Easily one of the best replies in the history of this board. We actually had a few of those knuckle heads at our door today.

I'm not sure I've ever known anyone that experienced PC gaming the right way actually go and prefer console gaming after.

Simply put, Consoles are for people who prefer simplicity with no frills, and don't mind having to replace the whole thing a few years down the road. In other words, people who want to have a GOOD hardware.

PC are for people who trade reliability for power (when I say power, i mean UNLIMITED POWAH!). People who grow up with mouse and keyboard control are also very very very reluctant to part with it. PC can be upgraded down the road (unless it is a laptop). PC is also a neutral ground in console wars, but you will soon realize it is a ground for another war (GPU and CPU wars) which we actually benefit from. If you want to be BROKEN, accept to substitute.

I don't see how the Jehova's Witnesses comparison applies. This is PC gamer turf, and it seems to me that a console apologist is knocking on OUR door trying to justify THEIR existence. It would be a good reply if this was a console board and the topic was something like "PC has advantages regardless of your personal preferences."

In six years, my PS3 has broken twice, and my PC zero times. And if my PC had failed in the same manner as my PS3 (first time the ODD died, second time the bluetooth receiver died), I would have been able to fix it myself rather than send the whole thing in to be replaced, and even had been able to continue using the PC until the replacement part arrived.

Year-by-year analysis of the finest gaming has to offer, and (eventually) more!

You've probably missed the "modern" part due to all the tears.

Console gamers are too stupid to tell the difference between 30fps and 60 fps.

They might as well not bother with a native 1080p at all.
