Games like Titanfall, DR3, No Man's Sky, etc would you still consider them Microsoft or Sony exclusive? I personally don't I see the PC as its own platform.

No. Let's not rewrite definitions. It's bad enough most people use the word literally incorrectly.

Anyone who does consider them exclusive

1) Doesn't understand the definition of the word, and
2) Has an inferiority complex about their preferred platform

Lol. I always thought exclusive meant you can only get it in one place.

Not as bad as people who use ironically incorrectly.

But no, if it comes out on xbox and pc but not playstation, it's not exclusive.

Well technically a game that is for Windows and Xbox only is a Microsoft exclusive.

Haven't experienced this. I personally know someone that frequently uses the word literally. Every other sentence... It's gotten so bad...

It's like an anime character saying "nyaaa!~ =^___^=" at the end of every sentence.

Probably not as common these days. Mac gaming has grown.

peasants like to think that a game that's on 3/4 platforms should be considered "exclusive" as long as it doesn't appear on that last 1/4.

also, it apparently also counts when a game is microsoft/sony/nintendo exclusive.
PC hardware doesn't need to match console hardware in price when PC gamers save literal thousands from the software they buy.

I just count the PC as its own platform because it really is. Now if Microsoft Sony or Nintendo developed the game it would be a little different but at the end of the day you don't have to buy their consoles to play the game. I just don't see why people don't understand that.
