Only Problem With PC Gaming

#21KillerTrufflePosted 8/18/2014 10:06:37 AM
You know, what I find so stupid about all these "PC gaming sucks because" troll topics isn't so much that they all claim ignorant things like not being able to game from the couch... What I find stupid is that these days, the people making the topics claim to not be anti-PC, claim to be PC gamers, etc. As though those comments might somehow lend a bit more credibility to the absolutely r******* statements they make.

"I'm not an Xbox fanboy, I own all the consoles. But the PS3 is a gameless pile of s*** and the Wii is for babies."

It's a dubious disclaimer, like "I'm not racist but have you ever noticed how black people..." and "I'm not gay but I'd totally hit that trap"

Also games like racing, I cannot use keyboard of game pad because they both feel crap. Im a driving enthusiast, I drive a bmw in real life and like to do drifting and street racing (legally), Without a steering wheel, I dont understand how it can be enjoyable.

It's just like those guys who make all the racist jokes and then claim "some of my best friends are (insert minority here)". Way to go TC, being prejudiced against PC users... we see you... we know what you're up to. Don't try to hide it.

While that thing would solve the problems of KB/Mouse not being terribly comfortable on the couch, I'd rather invest in a nice desk and computer chair at that point.

I haven't been that jealous in a long time. On a side note I would HIGHLY recommend getting rid of that wall-to-wall carpeting ASAP, that s*** will be a nightmare for whoever gets that house after you.

You didn't see what the room looked like before the carpet was there, and you don't know where I live.

Trust me, the carpet is fine how it is.

Must either be really bored at a desk job or live a really sad life if this sort of thing gets you your jollies.


PC gamers pay hundreds extra for that extra terabyte HDD, that second-saving SSD, or a slightly better GPU, and it's considered normal or hobbyist. One guy says he prefers the comfort of a couch over a deskchair and suddenly he's a lifeless moron.

Does a complaint about PC gaming, valid or not, ever make it through this board without someone getting their panties in a twist?

I fully agree, but there are people who *really* want to game from their couch on a big screen, and this would do it comfortably. Throw in a G700 and a decent wireless keyboard and you'd be OK. Or just get USB extension cables and use whatever KB/mouse you want.

Of course, all that is only necessary for games needing KB/mouse. Gamepad is still the ideal choice for a lot of those games.
