The author makes the point that this article is little more than a rant. It is little more than opinion. The computer that I own, the mods that I can download for free, the astounding graphics, innovative indie market and the many many many features of steam not to mention the games I buy on it at a fraction of full price, are all facts. I'm not going to bash consoles though because I'm not so astoundingly stupid that I think that my experience of them matters as an authority, or even matters at all. Usually what makes opinion pieces, even blatantly inflammatory ones, interesting is originality or something new on the point.

Tip: if you're not saying anything new then don't say it at all. I don't know if it's the stupidity of thinking the prefix "this is my opinion" made the author think that he what he had to say was worth saying, or whether it's just the plain fucking banality of the argument used, but this article really should be forgotten.

Not all rants are unhealthy. PC gaming really has suffered a lot because of developers taking their frustrations at pirates out on their fanbases.

I'm not going to lie, the ability to mod is amazing for me, but PCs sometimes do cause more problems then they solve.

No but normally a good opinion or argument should at least be a) worth reading, and b) grounded and objective. This is neither. Even a good rant should at least be funny.

Not to mention the needless fanboy baiting it results in. It's like a bunch of kids at McDonalds going apeshit crazy over how their burger is the best burger in the world. It doesn't matter if one of them go on to write a freaking thesis on the subject it doesn't really change the inanity of the argument.

to know why either one is better than the other. There are pro's and cons to both.

To highlight, consoles are a closed system where each person who buys a copy of the game for the same platform will share the same experience.

On the PC, there is room for improvement and in some cases advantages over the other guy.

Both have their respectable place in entertainment. Why we feel the need to try and promote one over another is pointless.

Unless of course, you are not privy to both so then by all means you will defend your platform of choice.

I feel like the "piracy" thing is just an excuse for developers to be lazy and develop on the much easier console platforms where not as much is asked of them. After all console piracy exists and it's arguably easier to pirate a console game than it is to pirate a PC game.

This is another rant from a disgruntle console gamer.
Services like Steam take away from his rant.
We heard all this before as you said wallis and must of it is false.
Typical flame article

These articles always end up in healthy discussions, and never turn into I'm better than you.
