Why Haven't You Joined The PC Gaming Master Race Yet?

Look on, you bleary-eyed console peasants, and witness the gospel truth being unveiled before you. Now is the time of the PC Gaming Master Race.
And why are you not falling to your knees? (PC)

Valve CEO is like the biggest walking gaming stereotype ever.

I'm sorry though I respect the guy.

"I'd rather play TLOU, thanks though"

You can only play 8 hour games so much.

@decrypt
I forgot about the fact that all PC games can be played forever /s
BTW the last of us took me 13 hours in normal, plus 2nd or 3rd runs and MP, good try though

Haha, 13 hours on normal? Your probably the same guy on there who gets 2 downs and 8 deaths in multiplayer.

Game is great but, it's not that long.

I'm so perplexed by your poor troll attempt response, that I'll just leave a link from IGN saying how long the game lasts.

I'm with ravinash - own them all or STFU and play what you got.

@guitarded
First, I get annoyed when people make that spelling mistake so thanks for correcting me.

Second, I have all the current consoles minus a Wii U. Edit: also have gaming PC

@Heavy
I don't care what they say at IGN, the game takes less than 10 hours to beat.

@below
I think it's (slightly) overrated too, but it's still one of the best games this generation, and arguably the best game on PS3

@LoveOfTheGame
Whatever you say dude, you already show your ignorance

"I think it's (slightly) overrated too, but it's still one of the best games this generation, and arguably the best game on PS3"

So, according to your perfect logic, you call it the best game on PS3 and also call it overrated?
hellvaguy  +   526d ago
If u spell it "yur" u cover all possible contractions in the one slang spelling. Do it now, k go.
LoveOfTheGame  +   526d ago
@Heavy
I fail to see where that logic fails.

Overrated means it is considered better than what it actually is. Too many people give it 10/10 and it's not that good but easily still in the 9s.

Michael Jordan can be argued as the best basketball player ever but he is still not perfect.
kingduqc  +   526d ago
You mean you rather watch TLOU cause frankly the only thing that set this games apart from a generic bad tps is the cut scean. If you disagree with me go put a few more ladders in place and one day you will understand how bland gameplay actually is.
papashango  +   526d ago
actually almost all PS3 exclusives are single playthroughs that need to be traded in after.

I used to have a ps3. You just can't play Heavy Rain, GOW3, and Uncharted again after you beat it.

This is the glaring issue with story driven games. This is why modding exists on the pc side. Oh you beat fallout? Try this mod where you get next to no ammo and have to drink & eat every so often or you'll die.

Oh Gabe... He needs to stop swimming in his money and develop some damn games. What the hell has Valve been doing?!
wishingW3L  +   526d ago
Because of Uncharted, The Last of Us, Yakuza, Marvel vs Capcom 3, Valkyria Chronicles, etc. Because my friends are not on the PC. Because PC can be hooked to an HDTV but you still need keyboard and mouse. Because PC towers are huge and I don't have that kind of space under my TV. Because PC games are not as optimized as console games so you always run into issues where you need to be constantly checking on the latest drivers from Nvidia, AMD, etc. Because PC is mostly digital and I like to own my games. Because PC gaming is not a cheap as people make it out to be, it's only cheap when you're savvy enough and know when to buy parts at a bargain, otherwise is much more expensive than a PS4.

There's also the issue with consoles now where game saves like to go corrupt. At least on the PC you can back them up easy.

There's also that issue where DLC isn't held back because the hardware can't run it.

Just sayin.
decrypt  +   526d ago
1. Uncharted, Last of us, Yakuza, Marvel Vs capcom dont exist on the PS4.

2. You dont need a Mouse keyboard when playing with a PC on TV, you can use a controller, Steam big picture mode says hi.

3. You can make an HTPC just the size of a console. Large tower cased PCs are extreme machines.

4. If PC games are not so optimized, same argument can be made for console. Check out Skyrim (still not fixed on PS3), BF3 (Input lag PS3), COD (FPS issues PS3), Mafia 2 (missing foilage PS3). List goes on, its not like PC is the only one badly optimized consoles have their fair share too. When it happens on console you cant do anything about it either, since you dont have a community who can role out patches before the developer do, you cant upgrade the console hardware either. You just stuck when something goes wrong.

5. Checking for drivers on PC is an option, you do it when you want to or when a game gives you issues. On console you cant play without a firmware upgrade, you are locked to it. Wanna play when a firmware update comes tough, you gotta install it first.

6. Well being digital isnt bad, I have over 150 games in Steam. I can carry on playing them even when a next gen arrives on the same machine or even should i decide to upgrade my machine. Can you play your ps3 games on the PS4? no you cant, you will need to keep multiple boxes just to play older games. Even then if the older box fails you need to go out buy it again. Maintaining multiple machines is costly and takes up space.

7. Check Steam & greenman gaming discounts PC gaming is def cheaper. Sure it costs few hundred more to build a PC, but then online is free and really that little extra spent also ensure BC. Refer to point 6.

The framerate trouble on skyrim on ps3 is almost non existant, as is the input lag on bf3. Both problems have been patched out. In the end pc gaming is still more of a hassle, you run into more problems then you do on console, but for some people its worth it for the benefits. I don't really feel too inclined to get a pc though, since there aren't many exclusives that interest me. No need to spend a bunch of money for enhanced ports.
LeoDDestroyer  +   526d ago
Even with steam big picture mode not ever game is controller compatible. You can always download game pad software tool make it work but it never good enough imo, there always a flaw in it.
Cuthbo  +   526d ago
You bring up good points though you dont 'HAVE' to use mouse and keyboard. Most games you can plug in a controller and use it just fine. I play on a gaming rig PS3 and xbox 360, excited for next gen games to increase the graphics and better game engines finally.
jeffgoldwin  +   526d ago
About every pc game made in last 6-8 years has controller support. Unless its a genre like mmo where it isn't feasible to use one.

Steam even has a nice feature where they display an icon of a controller next to the game prior to the purchase to let you know its compatible.
wishingW3L  +   526d ago
this is not even the final form. I bet that if you think a little harder you can still find many more legit complaints about why the PC is not the perfect gaming machine. Gaming on consoles is not just cons, it has its pros too.

ps3_pwns  +   526d ago
pc doesn't have jrpgs or Nintendo games or sony excluives. it does have all xbox games so I don't see why some pc gamers are stupid enough to get an pc and xbox its like dude they have the same games get pc/ps3/ wii u that's the only combo that makes sense lol.

that's why I think a lot of pc gamers are dumb. get a pc then get a xbox with the same games but you have to pay for the crap online. if pc was the master race they would know not to support MS at all.
negative  +   526d ago
Plus sports games on the PC suck ass, if they even develop them anymore.

I can see supporting MS though - seeing as most PC gaming rigs run on a Windows platform. Combine that with the sports game point I made (I'm sure there are others too) and there are reasons a PC gamer would have a Xbox too.
hellvaguy  +   526d ago
You can very easily get emulators to play thousands of last gen nintendo or sony games for free on pc or android. Havent heard of many peeps using for ps3, wiiu, or 360, but im sure there out there too.
s45gr32  +   526d ago
I am not sure about PC gamers getting a xbox. That's debatable, but there are Jrpgs like the YS franchise, recetar, fortune summoners, evoland, etc. What do you mean by Nintendo games if it's the exclusives well ever heard of the dolphin emulator. Is an emulator that let's you play wii games, gamecube games, etc. on the pc. Yeah I agree there is no Sony exclusives on the PC ; however, look at all these wonderful survival horror games both modern and retro like amnesia dark descent, lone survivor, home, lucius, slender, etc. Look at these Japanese games like cave story, Satazius, sinus mora, cherry tree high comedy club, every day shooter, la Mulana, bloom freesia, street fighter 4, tekken vs street fighter. Not to mention Japanese mmos like rusty hearts, final fantasy 11 and 14, planetside franchise, spiral knights. So that's a part of PC gaming.
cunnilumpkin  +   526d ago
pc can EMULATE every Nintendo game ever made(aside from wii u), all ps2, ps1, genesis etc. game ever freaking created and run it better and at higher resolutions that any console can or ever will

face it

consoles only purpose is for their exclusives, of which there are becoming less and less and eventually they all end up on pc via emulation.
yes even the highly over rated last of us and uncharted 3 will all be on pc in WAY better resolutions and image quality than the ps3 or ps4 could ever display them in

a pc will ALWAYS do a better job of playing every game as long as you have the hardware

better frame rate, better textures, better anti aliasing, better effects, mods, backwards compatibility going back 30 years, free to play, mmo, rts, community made games

and to all the console only, uninformed masses

consoles are WAY more expensive than pc

ps4=$400
psn plus for 8 years of console life=$400
$15 extra per game average 100 games over the course of consoles life=$1500

$2300 for ps4's inferior to pc graphics, no mods, and no backwards compat

yeah....

PASS

I'll grab a ps4 when its $200 on a black Friday sale some year, comes with five games and a year of plus

Same amount of buttons are coincidentally pushed to open steam or start a disc on a console. Pc gaming from over a decade ago perceptions and outdated stereotypes still persist I guess.

You can either hook up a gaming rig to your tele or build a home theater gaming computer . These are the size of a vcr, think of the shuttle box. This box alone can get an Intel i7 processor plus a Nvidia gtx 580. There are PC games with split screen multi player like trine franchise.

ps3_pwns  +   526d ago
yep and any good pc exclusives come to consoles and even more pc games will come to consoles as well with the next gen ps4.
hellvaguy  +   526d ago
Few good mmos end up going to consoles. But I see what u mean alot of games are cross platform.
s45gr32  +   526d ago
Not so sure about that only PC games that can be simplified for consoles. The total war franchise, Arma franchise, Among the sleep, Enola, Constantine, Asylum, Hawken, Mech Warrior online, Distance, etc are not coming to consoles. I understand warframe coming to consoles is because is an online action game but a game like dear Esther or to the moon are very unlikely to come to consoles. Games like the Arma franchise or total war are unlikely to come to consoles due to its complexity and down to every single little detail which also includes prison architect. Now those games that do come to consoles are the simplified versions of say PC games.
ginsunuva  +   526d ago
Well did you know that it's not illegal to own both a PC and a console?
ps3_pwns  +   525d ago
it is If the console you have with it is an xbox one. pc has every xbox eexclusive you shouldn't be playing a console that has the same gams as your pc and pay online as well if you have a pc. pc and an xbox is redundant and doesn't make sense to own the xbox with it. pay thousands of dollars because of peer pressure when your pc already has the xbox games is pretty fail.

Lol the nerve on this comment, console gamers never bash pc, they know pc is superior, is the pc crowd who cant let go of the subject.

More control of your gaming experience by building your own PC, able to fix say games before the developer fixes them, able to run private servers and play online games were the game developer has shut down the online servers I. e. Halo 2 on PC or Phantasy Star Online, improve or create your own dlc content via mods. Getting multi platform games at bargain prices and at their peak technical, visual, audio performance. Don't forget lots and lots of survival horror games , Jrpgs, Japanese games, Asian mmos, platformers or retro style games, emulators like dolphin emulator, etc. Is just a better gaming experience period

Is there any other developer beside from Valve who still focuses on the PC community and makes amazing games

I mean Valve are good and all but the development times are so long that it's not going to cut it. Plus with them looking into a Steam box, hybrid PC/console, they obviously want in the console business aswell.

You know what I really hate about PC gamers, when your in a group and talking about a game...

"Oh I'm going to get the PC version because it will be way better"

....Yeah, we were talking about consoles in our conversation don't try and turn the conversation to the PC.

I mean the PC is a platform not a console, so why do they have to try and wiggle it into console talk.

cause steam in europe is garbage. Prices re joke apart from those yearly sale bundles. Years old games are 15,20 euros(on consoles same games cost less and u own psyhical copy), new releases re 60 euros(on consoles i get games for 45).

Im writing on i5 with 8gigs of ram and i play it like once a week, i use more my ps3(currently tlou) for gaming. Maybe it sounds stupid but last thing i want after 8 hours of work is to sit again for pc.

I dont care for mobas, rts games anymore(dont have time for it, total war etc)not much into mmos.

Best exclusives imo re on consoles, u can cry about it all u want, i dont care, play whatever u want, just stop with constant pc slamming in face.

Why havent I joined yet?

I really want to... and it seems like I've been saving for my maxed out gaming pc since 2005 (when I could legally start working full time :) ), but something always comes along that takes priority over my gaming rig savings. And beleive me I really DO want to join the "master race", mostly because I'd rather play multiplats and pc exclusives on a pc, and reserve my consoles for exclusives.

The thing is, I don't like missing out on gaming experiences. It literally pains me, I have to go to my friends at least once a week to play DayZ and honestly at this stage it feels like I'm using him a bit haha, so having my own PC that was able to play current releases would be nice.

I just don't see why you can't have a console and a pc, or if you only have one, at least admire or take interest in the games that you are unable to play... don't respond with hate stemmed from disappointment or jealousy.

Be a gamer, enjoy the quality experiences developers are delivering whatever way you can, whether you're on PC, console or handheld. And if you're fortunate enough or know how to work towards your goals, enjoy all three in the best way possible ;)

But this is the internet, it runs on hate, and I do NOT want to kill the internet.

Game suppose to be fun not just graphics its a complete experience some ppl think put a lot of Dynamic Lighting and Shadows of polygons in a game makes it great no matter how good it looks if it's boring and most computer games are i wont play it that's the problems I have with most of these so called pc master race games
JsonHenry  +   526d ago
If you like those types of games you should check out the Steam greenlight/indie collections.

WAY more indie games like Grindea (16bit zelda w/co-op and dynamic real time fighting), UnEpic (metroidvania), Anodyne (think 8-bit Zelda), and a whole lot of games that have never been created before. You don't need a powerful PC to play most of the games either.

I'm primarily a PC gamer and the only consoles that are in anyway interesting and not just stripped down PCs are by Nintendo. PC for cross-platforms, strategy games and to crank all the dials up to 11; Nintendo for Zelda, Mario, Pikmin and so on.

The best of both worlds!

But I can understand why some people can't be bothered with PCs. I've just finished putting mine back together after the shitty water cooler for the CPU leaked over everything and the PSU blew up :0 All in warranty but, still, a lot of hassle.

pc gamers actually don't play games at all. they talk on the message boards or end up fapping or something. they usually buy a bunch of games off steam and never play them or finish them. they usually start a game and then just keep adding mods to it everyday and play it to see how the mod works and looks then they say screw it im gonna go to pc forums and talk about the mod instead of playing the game. and talk about upgrading my rig so that I can buy and not play the new game that's coming out a max settings lol.

I play Japanese games, and fighting games, (BlazBlue being my main) which it doesn't have. It just lacks JPRG's and most Japanese games in general. DMC3 had a horrible port, DMC4 had a great but late port, NG was never there, MGRR MIGHT get there, but BlazBlue still only has Calamity Trigger on PC.

So it just lacks my kind of games on it, I don't like the smugness of the community, I know not everyone is like that, I have met some awesome guys on PC. I do have a gaming PC, but it's just not used for much of anything at all.
skept3k  +   526d ago
PC gaming honestly isn't as expensive as everyone makes it out to be.

You don't have to pay anything for online multiplayer.

Xbox 360 Live 4 years = $240 That could be an upgrade part for your PC in 4 years.

Most games sell cheaper than $60. Steam has so many sales, not to mention other websites as well. You'll save money there too.

The only expensive thing is the first purchase of the actual PC. After that you start saving money in every other category.

That money you save is what you use a few years down the line to buy upgrades if needed.

There are so many more PC exclusive games. I feel safe saying that PC has more exclusives than Xbox and PS put together. They may not be all big AAA large funded games, but there are a lot of games worth playing.

Continually amazed at just how stupid people are. Right now, PS3/Xbox 360 vs. PC is a joke in graphical fidelity. You have to be straight delusional from marketing to not admit that. I imagine half the people arguing that PC graphics aren't as good have never even seen a game running on a decent system.

Don't get me wrong. Consoles serve their own purpose. I have a PS3 and already have a PS4 pre ordered, but to deny just straight obvious things is absolutely absurd. Or arguing against things that you have no knowledge of (why is this so common anymore?) After playing on PC for a while it is damn hard for me to go back to PS3 at this point. The graphics are just so bad. Going from 1080p at 144hz to 720p 30hz sucks.

With next consoles, yes, graphics will be better. But now you're going to start having a lot of the problems PC gamers have. High end graphics are a lot more complex, leading to more software bugs/glitches and what not. You already have to update the PS3 on a fairly routine basis (so how can you argue about drivers? It's the same deal but you have to download it from a website, god forbid you lazy bastards have to do something for yourselves).

I really don't know why people complain about so many issues with PC games. I play tons of games and typically never have issues, unless it's me being nitpicky and wanting something just so (like wanting more anti aliasing). Multi GPU setups have tons of issues. But just running a single gpu setup you rarely ever have to update drivers or anything.

I don't know why people are so defensive about PC gaming. Whenever someone says anything about PC games being better people get all defensive with some of the worst logic I've ever heard (wonder why that is). Most people don't talk about PC gaming being better because they feel elite, it's probably just because they enjoy it so much and want to spread the word. Maybe you need to address your denial and maybe give it a shot?

It's a pretty simple 'I can't have it, therefore I don't want it' issue, which leads to chosen ignorance:

Man you have to spend $3000 a year for barely better graphics man!

Those console gamers really fuel the PC Master Race Elite thing with that kind of chosen stupidity. Makes it easy to feel superior.

Yeah, and have you ever actually heard a PC gamer come out and say "I'm elite because I play on PC?" No, all they ever say is how their platform is better (typically based on facts), and so instantly get labeled as "PC elitist" (which is not based on a fact). Great argument...

I am happy to say that once next-gen consoles come, everything will get better and will also improve PC games in general. This gen of consoles has been holding PC gaming back, but once the next-gen comes, it all goes uphill from there.

Oh but I have! I have! My new parts will arrive within the week. Will $1300 worth of heavily researched and carefully selected upgrade parts be enough to 'buy' my way into "Gaming PC Heaven?" Oh please do tell. Pretty please. I figured it works for the Christians why not us PC dorks as well?

Im sure the console folk will balk at this crazy sounding expenditure, but I dont care because I'll be in "Gaming PC Heaven" and you wont. You console guys (I used to be one) have your own little section somewhere else; its just not quite as magical, the clouds aren't as pink or as soft, among other things, I mean its close, just not quite the same. ;-)

The similar architecture (finally) will be a win win for console and PC gamers alike.

And for those saying that PC games "arent better" they simply have no idea of the unrestricted ways of the PC. A shame really. I dig pushing a button an playing a console but pc just offer so much more for those willing to invest a miniscule and tiny bit of time.
