Can quite easily see why the whole "PC master-race" stuff is actually a thing..

But, PC has no subscription fees, the games are generally cheaper and easier to get a hold of, an insane catalog of games, both modern and old, where as consoles (at least in this generation) have no backwards compatibility.



Generally cheaper?.... Um.. Try ALWAYS cheaper.

I use it as a joke because whenever it's mentioned, you immediately find out who in the room is a console gamer.


You're a joke when you type in that font.

Ohh me so cool!! Look at me look at me!


Everyone who puts their PC specs in their sig is a joke.

a good game is a good game, no matter the platform. bad games on any platform is the fault of the designer, not the platform

too bad you're not getting a ps4/xbone.

that way you'll miss out on the opportunity of getting tomb raider: definitive edition for $60 with... wait for it... waaait for it.... improved grafix when coming from the last-gen console versions.

your loss, TC.

PC hardware doesn't need to match console hardware in price when PC gamers save literal thousands from the software they buy.

Actually the funniest thing about these lame "master race" topics is how many people who you NEVER see posting here (because they're console gamers) suddenly come out of the woodwork to fall for it... Almost every single time. Then they get all upset about it and come back a week later (maybe) with a "New User(1)" or "Provisional" account to attempt to troll the PCH board.

It used to be. Unfortunately some of the less well educated have taken it upon themselves to throw the term around with actual meaning

I hope people realize "master race" was a patronizing term that the community owned. No one in the PC gaming community just came up and said, "yea we're literally going to liken ourselves to Nazis now".


Why do people here think this?

Its based on the "Master Race/Peasant" meme that had nothing to do with gaming. It was rampant on 4chan, Reddit and LL. It just stuck with PC master race/console peasants because console gamers acted pissy about it.
