When it comes to stupid arguments, this takes the prize.

And no, i won't explain why it's stupid, i'll leave it for you to think it yourselves.


If you won't even defend or explain your belief of why then your opinion doesn't even matter.

Nah. Its the people who support current AAA game dev practices hold gaming back. Most AAA devs never take risks anymore and just stick with tried and tested formula that is watered down every year and chock full of DLCs/In-app purchases that nickle and dime you every step of the way. Current games are focused on the graphical arms race and never on improving the quality of the game overall.

I support indie devs who has some ideas that I am interested in compared to AAA devs that are moving towards making interactive movies that are very short and nickle and dime you every step of the way.

Better graphics=higher development costs=less creativity, more bland games that play to the lowest common denominator so companies don't go bankrupt.

So, in a way, consoles are helping gaming by holding graphics back. Gameplay, fortunately, is far less hardware-intensive.

Statement is true. Console gaming is for people who are not smart enough to built their own computer and must resort to someone else feeding them the games. Console gamers are more into casual no skill games. That is why CoD sells millions of copies on consoles.

This is probably one of the dumbest posts on the PCH board...of which there are a lot. Daily.

Congratulations, sir. You've won. What, I dunno. But you won it.

You won't explain why it's stupid because you can't, meanwhile many of us can explain exactly why that statement holds true. Compare Deus Ex to Deus Ex: Invisible War. Compare Thief 2 to Thief: Deadly Shadows to Thief 2014. Compare Morrowind to Oblivion to Skyrim. Noticing a pattern here?

There comes a point where hardware gets so outdated as to outright hinder progress.



This.

Not to mention that consoles are holding back the entire FPS genre (and arguably one or two others) because of limited controls.

It's the exact opposite, consoles do a lot for gaming when a new one comes out. If PS3 and 360 were the last consoles, PC gaming would go nowhere.
