Does PC have any AAA quality exclusives that justify sticking to PC only gaming?

If yes, which ones?

If not, then why do you bash consoles if good games are what make a gamer happy?

Practically every RTS, TBS, and MMO. CRPG's, sims, and indie games with AAA quality. There's a lot more on pc compared to any 1 console. A LOT more.

That isn't to say console exclusives are weaker or anything, just that if you need to ask about pc exclusives, you haven't looked. Just because it isn't posted on a billboard a year before release in every physical game store out there, doesn't mean its not quality.

Nothing gives a s*** about "AAA quality exclusives", we just play games that are good.

If we want to play some exclusive games, we whip out our humungous wallets and buy a flipping console. Simple as that.

Question, why are exclusives the justification you need? If good games are what makes gamers happy, then why does it matter how many platforms said games are ported to?

You overturned your own logic within two sentences.

Also, you've clearly done zero research. I'm cool with answering questions but not with doing your homework for you.

Everything has aaa exclusives, so why would you stick to any one thing? Outside having too many games, which is definitely a problem, and I can see why people do stay exclusive to pc, too much going on to even consider getting anything else.

Honestly, I think the PC is probably the best place just for Indie games. I've had more fun playing Bastion, Binding of Isaac and Tiny and Big: Grandpa's Leftovers than even playing Last of Us.

Sure I'm slowly getting through Last of Us, but the controls are whats killing it for me. Really need to get that 360 style PS3 controller for myself.

"AAA games" are among the most expensive things to produce. Why would you spend tens of millions of dollars to develop and title and not put it on every platform you possibly could if someone wasn't paying you for "exclusivity"?

And for that matter, why would you as a gamer care about whether a title was "exclusive" or not?

Well, obviously this thread is directed to PC only gamers.

From a quick look PC exclusives look pretty lackluster, hence my curiosity on why any gamer would limit himself to PC only games.

I have the powerA pro elite and the mini one. Only the wireless ones have the sixaxis if you need that, but you can make it through the game without even having to shake to recharge your flashlight

I didnt say AAA games...i said "AAA quality" games, as great games, but not necessarily because of production budget.
