Consoles tend to get the most exclusives

lolno

PC gets faaaaaaaaaaaaar more exclusives

Not if you count every console being developed for. If you count PS4, Xbox One, 3DS and the Switch, their exclusives outweigh PC by a large margin.

That being said, I still use both console and PC, because I enjoy them both.

Oh, please. You've always been bashing PC Gaming for no good reason while having a bias towards consoles.


You two are two different sides of the same coin - you both have far too much of your self-esteem invested in your game platform of choice. Get some fresh air.

These are so true.

You buy an expensive pc to play games but certain games don't run the way you want it to.
you look for solution online & sometimes you have to wait weeks.


For one thing, situations like that are very rare, for another, you could say the same thing about a buggy release on consoles, but with the PC you have the possibility of community-created fixes whereas you are completely at the mercy of the console makers/publishers on console. Don't get me wrong, I have nothing against people choosing one platform over another for their own reasons, but I think the "technical issues" angle is vastly exaggerated. If you can use google/have a bit of technical knowhow and/or patience you can fairly easily solve the odd issue that may crop up.

Because that logic makes sense. You're not allowed to post on a public forum if you're incorrect? Totally makes sense.

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

We're that enforced, this site would be a ghost town. Every day there's countless examples of blinding ignorance posted on GameFAQs forums.

It's still a valid point though. For example: Metro Redux, both games, have the y axis movement set different than the x axis in addition to some kind of mouse deceleration. There is literally no way to fix this without intercepting the mouse signals through, for example, Logitech Gaming Software. I refunded the game because I found that kind of bulls*** unacceptable from a developer standpoint.

Console games have a far bigger chance of working straight out of the box than PC. With that said, I have most of the consoles and a high end PC. I prefer PC for the vast majority of the time. Most of the guys who I game with have both a PS4 and PC as well. This whole "one is better than the other" attitude just screams "I'M A NECKBEARD AND I HAVEN'T LEFT MY MAMA'S BASEMENT FOREVER!"
