Do all PC gamers slam the crap out of consoles and people that play them?

It seems that if a pc gamer hears i play a console, he'll let me know how inferior consoles are and all the great aspects of a pc and what the heck am i doing playing a pc and essentially im stupid.

I just like consoles.....

I think that's mostly your inferiority complex blowing things out of proportion.

No, and I think it's fair to say most don't.

What pisses people off is when the console gamers start saying garbage like PC has no exclusives, PC can't be used on a TV with a gamepad, etc. etc.

I like both but if some console only gamer comes in here displaying their sheer ignorance with stupid claims then I'll correct them. The whole "huehuehue pc has no gaemz" just annoys me these days.

Consoles are inferior in terms of power and what they can do. You just have to remember it doesn't make you inferior for liking them. Stop caring what other people think of your hobbies.

Yeah, I don't think most "console peasants" realize that the whole PC master race thing is a goof. When PC gamers use it, it's mostly a parody of stereotypical PC douche bags that worry about getting an extra 4FPS on Crysis.

Most PC gamers I would bet have at least one console. I personally own both a 360 and PS3, plus an old DS.

No.

Consoles are cheap, easy, and straightforward. They have good exclusives. Any game you buy will work; there's no odd incompatibilities. There are advantages.

If you like consoles, play consoles.

As a PC gamer, I can vouche for him, it's not. Most console gamers do not suffer from an inferiority complex, because they don't know any better, and most of them don't care. Console gamers don't care about performance to the same degree that PC gamers do. I find that most console gamers game for the sake of gaming. For the community. The looking for every treasure chest to unlock all the extra stuff. To them it's more about playing the actual game and having fun with it.

PC gamers are more akin to mad scientists that focus less on the actual gaming part of things, and more on the performance part of things. They look at how much AA they can dish out at 1080p with 120fps at which temperatures and with ubersampling in their benchmarking records. It's like they use games as display pieces for what they can do with their PCs rather than build PCs to have fun playing games.
