Feel free to post evidence that shows PC exclusives outweigh console exclusives in quantity. If they do, I'll gladly stand corrected.


that's not how burden of proof works ya know.

you were the first to claim that console exclusives outnumbered PC and as such you're the one who's supposed to provide the first numbers.

however, you're also wrong and i'll just help you along:
https://www.vg247.com/2016/12/01/around-40-of-games-on-steam-were-released-in-2016/

This year saw the release of over 4000 titles on Steam, amounting to nearly 40 percent of all games available on the service.

even "if" we say that maybe 1/4 of those were exclusives, that's still 1000 PC-only games in a year which i'm pretty sure trumps whatever number the 4 consoles you mentioned can dish out within a 12 month period.

now, the absolute majority might not be good with an absolute s*** ton of shovelware and a fraction that's actually worth playing... but that's hardly any different than what consoles get seeing as it's pretty much the same small list of games you see mentioned every time somebody posts a list for any console not to mention that quality was never a part of the argument.

That doesn't prove anything, Tyrant, other than PC is being deveoped for by more developers. But fine. I'll go and do the work myself.

To Asuca: right. I forgot about the burden of proof rule. My bad. You're probably right on That. I'd wager it's more like 1/5th of those are exclusive, but that'd still dwarf the collective console exclusives. I stand corrected then. :P

Anywho, my other three points for why one buys a console still stands. And technically the exclusives one does too, just in a different way. People buy all kinds of consoles to play exclusive games. Personally, I bought a PS4 because I grew up on Sony. I've bought PS1, PS2 and PS3. I just enjoy the Sony line. That being said, there's several PS exclusives that I just really like. I also game frequently on PC.

Both PC and consoles have pros and cons. Just use the one that suits you better.

The best answer was the 1st response. Nothing else posted below this comment even matters.

Hahaha your own comment is right below it lmao. Poor choice of words :P

My comment doesn't matter either. Only the quote contained within it which was the 1st response.

Sure, your comment/choice about the best answer doesn't matter. Got it.

It's important to know what the rules are first, so that, when you decide to break them, you can better judge the effect.

Man, I don't get the appeal of phone/tablet games. Like, I really don't. The last game that really blew my pants off on Android was the 6th Ace Attorney game, almost every other game feels like it's designed for people with short attention spans, full of ads or microtransactions. Maybe that's why it's got a large amount of developers, but I'd rather pick up my Game Boy instead (or emulate it on Android, lol).

EDIT: I guess at the end of the day I'm just doing what everyone else is doing, playing games where they like to play games.

Well that's quite simple. For a dev, its the biggest market and the one accessible to the most people.
