The Comforts Of Console MMO Gaming

Blaine Smith of XMMORPG writes:

I’m a firm believer that the MMO experience on PC is usually far superior to that of its console counterparts. There are certain aspects that mean consoles are always lacking, such as the ability to communicate quickly, and the appearance of the game due to graphical restrictions. I don’t consider graphics to be the most vital aspect of enjoying a game so my decision to purchase a PlayStation 3 copy was as much curiosity as it is anything else. (Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn, PS3)

IMO i think the most perfect mmo to bring to console would be tera rising, i have been playing wow for years and have 5 lvl 90s now all in BiS heroic raid gear till the next patch of course, I have tried all the other newer mmos such as rift, GW2 the secret world, but Tera really is the only game to give me that feeling like wow did years ago and the combat from tera would fit perfectly to a controller.

Tera would be great on consoles....

To turn away people from the genre. Tera is utter trash.

I can see Guild Wars 2 playable on PS4.

I have my PC hooked up to the 42in tv in my room. I hooked up a wireless keyboard and gamepad and I played FFXIV from the comfort of my bed today.

The cool thing about PC gaming is that you're rarely restricted to one control method :).

You've got a point :D However, most households have a sofa and a decent sized TV. Not everyone has the perfect PC gaming setup :D

Very true and that's why it's good to have the best of both worlds. We got the PS3/X360 all nice and cozy in the entertainment room :).
