Do you think PC gaming is pretty antisocial compared to console gaming

PC gamers are probably more social.


They're more likely to form cliques with people they know really well. That's why clans are so prominent in PC games. Games in which pubbers are more social with each other are usually "niche" games. I don't really mean they have small communities, so much as a majority of their community members are strongly dedicated only to that game.

Nope, at any given time, I'm probably talking to 3-4 other people. Meanwhile, being social in game is much more available whether it's voice or text chat. Not sure how people could say console gaming would be more social.

not really. and im not even really a PC gamer. i mostly play blizzard games on my PC so im very limited but from what ive seen the PC community is just as vocal as the console one. probably even more so with things like skype, ventrilo, mumble etc.

My parents refused to buy me any gaming stuff when I was in high school and uni. At least I had excuses to keep the PC around. Now, I can afford both, but I stay in PC because I see PC gamers see things more clearly, at least most of them.

Naw, I play a ton of games with friends.CS, DOTA 2 and LoL is all the multiplayer I need.

All gaming seems pretty antisocial to me.

Social in what sense?

The de-socialization of MMO's is directly caused by consoles. They can't type so chat windows are gone (see Defiance for perfect example of this).

PC's are orders of magnitude more social than consoles if we compare only MMO's.

PC gaming is too social. Would be nice if some LoL and DotA players learned to shut up.

Most of my friends play on PC, so playing on consoles is actually really lonely for me.
