Why do console gamers think PC gamers are serious with the master race thing?

Didn't you hear about that PC gamer that worked at Burger King that beat up his co-worker for buying a Xbox One claiming that if he didn't support the master race he deserved to get beat up.

After I heard about this I realized the true nature of the PC gamer master race cult.


That's nothing compared to these..

Using your logic, these would be examples of the true nature of console peasants...

Those were clearly unbalanced individuals and could have committed violence over any other random minor thing. Gaming consoles are incredibly prevalent and yet stories like these are by far the exception rather than the rule. There have also been stories of neglect/parental abuse etc. related to PC Games/MMOs, so irrational, screwed up behavior is certainly not limited to one gaming platform.

Unfortunately, there are also all of the scumbags that treat other people like pure trash just because they interrupt the player thinking they're some big MOBA hotshot.

The 'joke' stopped being funny (if it ever was) a long time ago. It just seems childish and immature now.

Obviously. They're console gamers.

Sadly there is a group out there that has never seen the Zero Punctuation video and takes.it seriously.


Probably Reddit. Maybe /v/, but they tend to lean with either Sony or Nintendo. 100% guaranteed /g/.

The mustard race seems to think so.

Are you new to this board TS? Clearly there are people here who are serious. It's quite pathetic, really.
