Why do people that own a gaming PC refer to themselves as the "master race"?

Oh. So what's the big deal then? Honestly when I first heard it I chuckled a bit but other than that I saw it as nothing more than a simple joke Yahtzee made. He tends to make alot of them. I really don't see how it got blown out of proportion like it is now.


Pretty sure 4chan is where it took off - they basically embraced the joke made at PC gamers' expense and turned it around to what it is now.

Wow. You know interestingly enough I've never been on 4chan. I think there is a reason for that.

Me either. GFAQs is like a well-ordered Sunday school compared to 4chan.

EDIT: (From what I hear, that is... considering I've never personally visited for myself.)

Because it's a scary place full of pedophile hackers on steroids who will eat your children. Seriously there's nothing wrong with 4chan, the language is a bit stronger and sometimes people post porn on "sfw" boards.

You realize that console people called us the master race sarcastically first right? And we just took it for ourselves after they said that.

Uh, no, I'm pretty sure you have your history on the term messed up there. Unless you consider Yahtzee "console people"...

At the time and in the context, yes, actually.

Oh look, this topic again.

Let's roll the dice and see if we can come up with a 500 post topic....


It's a joke because the guy who made the joke uses humor in his reviews... People used the joke because it was moderately funny... Other people didn't get the joke because they didn't know where it originated and took it seriously... Still other people saw it as another opportunity to troll and so they used it to get some people upset. (It's super effective!)

And now we're in topic #4712 about why a joke from a sarcastic British man with a fedora can make people cry.
