Which gaming audience is the most mature: PC, console, or handheld gamers?

That being said, the one thing I miss about console gamers is that they tend to be a lot more social and use the mic more. Outside of Valve titles, it's getting more and more difficult to find a good PC game with a vocal community. The few that are using a mic tend to stick to chatting with their clans on TeamSpeak/Mumble/Vent, leaving everybody else to play in silence.


...games you play don't have text chat? What games are you playing that don't have text chat?

PC. Despite the few hardcore fanboys out there that try to get on everyone's nerves by preaching about the PC's power like a Mormon going from door to door, the majority of PC gamers are very kind (at least, from what I've seen; also not counting the trashy MOBA community) and they know the PC's place in gaming as the head honcho. Like I said, most PC gamers don't seem to push their beliefs of PC being best on to people too hard, but there are a few people that could just get aggravating. Also, generosity is much more common on PC due to the flimsy and easily traded nature of Steam keys.

Trying to blanket label any group is in itself a mark of immaturity, right along side notions like "I'm too old to enjoy that" or "you should grow up" etc. I'd add hilariously caveman-like "that's too girly" etc. but that's not as common as it once was, I suspect. I admit there are some games that are just so cheesy I prefer not to play around others that aren't familiar with them though, sometimes. (Tales of games... seriously...)

Despite the target demographic for handhelds, ironically enough it's the most mature group IMO.

equal level of immaturity


This - there are a lot of immature children, teenagers and adults out there, therefore there's going to be a fair amount of immaturity in any gaming community.

I don't see kids wanting to **** my mother on PC or 12 year olds screaming, so I'm going to have to go with PC.

The fact that the PC board is able to handle a topic like this with such maturity speaks well for the PC gaming community.

It's a guarantee that the same topic posted on the Xbox One board would have the first reply be "not Sony ponies, that's for sure", while the PS4 board would say something along the lines of "Sony fans have always been better than Xbots".

Thank God that this board at least has civility.

Handheld gamers are the most mature in the sense that they won't spit on you or bother you or insult you because you chose PC gaming or console gaming. The same can't be said of the other two.

Actually, the same topic WAS posted. Guess what was brought up first?

Whichever has the fewest users.
