Troll or not, I'd like to answer this honestly...

If PC is the master race, why are all the top games and boards for console games? There's not a single PC exclusive title in the top boards. And any cross platform game that is on PC has the majority of users asking about console versions.


There's actually a very good reason why console forums are more popular on GameFAQs. It's because the vast majority of PC players use the Steam forums. If you look at a PC game like RUST then the forums are empty here, but they're blazingly popular over on Steam. If you dumped all the Steam members onto GameFAQs then the PC boards would top the popular lists. But right now most PC players aren't here simply because they don't have to be.

Even if you look at a game like Overwatch, most PC players use the official forums. They don't come here. I imagine that Destiny will probably be the same way.

No doubt. We tend to also use Reddit boards for PC, too.

They don't want to tolerate immature people on sites like this.

Thanks @ClunkerSlim that really does make sense.

I'm not sure why people feel baited... All I did was ask a question looking for an honest answer and presented facts about this site that can be seen on the home page. If you feel baited over that then the problem is with you.

Also yes I have an FC code in my signature because the site that I said based on facts caters to console players is one I use for one of my handheld consoles. I guess that's what passes for irony in some minds, instead of just being additional evidence to support my perspective on the question.

And lastly, yes persona 5 is the only PS4 exclusive on the top list but it's there right? I don't see any PC exclusive title there, but I want to. Gw2 has an expac dropping in a few days and that's my primary game ATM. I come to GF often yet have never seen games like that or even PUBG in the top list, this why I asked and I'm literally just rephrasing what I said in my OP...

Damn I avoid reddit altogether because I know I'd have negative karma points over there.

Console plebs b**** and moan about there games as they are inferior whilst pcmr are too busy enjoying their games at high resolution and fast frames.

Also in all seriousness people like to say games are played on consoles yet over 2 million players alone are concurrently playing the top 3 games on steam. Just saying
