SteamFirst: Gamers are always debating the fact that their console is better than any others, all while cursing their console while they game.
It's not about platform. It's about community. I use Steam to find the right community to play with. With TF2 we use all talk so that we can laugh at each other and have a blast. On my console, I sought out a more mature gaming community. I only play with them and the experience is far better. It is important for devs to embrace this so that the gaming experience is enjoyed by people who want to enjoy it and not get nagged by a bunch of whiny brats, homophobes, or racists. Although, I still tend to grief the occasional racist when I am not gaming with my fellow community members.
Very well said thorstein
I...I feel the need to link this masterpiece. https://www.youtube.com/wat...
Why are articles like these stupid compared to others?
No, they just own a lot more games.
start my pc build next week so excited i5 processor and gtx 670ti card
Enjoy, guy. I doubt you'll regret it. You can expect nice performance there.
welcome to the master race, here's your card.
Can you go i7? Just wondering. I am waiting for a good SSD to drop just a few more bucks before I build my next machine.
I7 goes past my budget sadly.
A lot of them are the same people. Steam is a free download and many games on Steam can run on off-the-shelf hardware. Anyone with even a slight interest in video games has downloaded Steam on their PC. Between the ridiculous sales of Steam, GOG, Amazon, Origin, etc. and the free stuff on PS Plus, my backlog of games is terrifyingly awesome. They are not different gamers.
Huge difference if it's a R* game. They don't work on PC.
Perhaps you need a better PC?
No, my PC is a beast. Max Payne 3, RDR, GTA4, none of them work on anyone's pc cause R* socialclub craps out all the time. I went 5 months after buying Max Payne before I could play it. Played it for 2 weeks and it's been down for the last few months. I'm saying you can't even play single player offline. Never did get RDR to work to this day. Don't buy R* games on PC.
Which is why you should own consoles as well. Hope you enjoy all of those inventive PC-only games, my friend. They can be pretty great, really.
I have consoles. I'm saying, if you do happen to play some PC games, don't pick R* games. They don't work for months at a time. hey force you through socialclub, and for some reason it craps out on the pc side ALL THE TIME. I have titles I've never been able to play, get support for or refund.
Well if you've paid for the games i don't see any harm in cracking them so they don't need social club login. I've never had any login troubles myself though. Also I think there are some posts flying around with info about how to avoid social club login problems.
What a strange troll post.
Nope, lost me at the very start: "Gamers are always debating the fact that their console is better than any others, all while cursing their console while they game. " I like to think I am different to those gamers, regardless of whether they have consoles or Steam.
Yeah, that's a pretty freaking ridiculous thing to claim.
Steam gamers most civilized?? No, they are the most obnoxious! Not all of them but the vocal ones. While much of the console war crap is over the top. The attacks are usually aimed at the console or the company behind them. The attacks by the steam/PC crowd are often more personal
Looks like many disagree with you sir.
For me, I respect PC gamers. I just can't deal with the passive-aggressive/nerd talk. I'm a regular guy, that's looking for an online game to chat *normally* with gamers. Call me boring, I guess... :-/
They do have very different tastes, the best selling console games are always sports games and cod, the best selling games on steam have indies like divinity or Kerbal space program
"Are Gamers on Steam Different Than Those On Console" Yes, they are digital hoarders.
So true. I have 400+ games on steam and play All of them :/
