Hooked Gamers has put together a list of 9 reasons why PC gamers are more hardcore than console gamers.
Farmville, Chess, Solitaire, Poker, UNO... those are really hardcore
http://www.youtube.com/watc... and here's my own personal.
and PC... :P
OMG, that was totally hardcore. You can't do that on a console!!
Wow reload and consoles are really 1080P /s Go back to your inbred town
Halo, Call Of Duty, Gears Of War, Madden... those are really hardcore
Lol idiot. Mario, Sonic, Kinect, Pokemon... yeah those are real hardcore
Got news for you. You haven't read the article but you should, it says something about you. :) Counter: Superior versions of Mass Effect, Dragon age. Sequels to brilliant games such as Starcraft and Diablo coming up. Moddable versions of Battlefield Bad Company 2 and Splinter Cell Conviction available.

i was busy laughing at those pics i forgot what i was gonna say.thanks for the laugh lads!
Why are most of the pictures of serious computer nerds from the 80's?
THIS, is why I come on N4G everyday, to watch hilarious fights like these. Thank you gentlemen, for the laughs, and please, by all means, continue!
most mmos arent even hardcore anymore . The only thing hardcore would be the amount of hours some people are willing to spend there
What is the definition of "hardcore" then? I think, there was an N4G article about this. I dont like MMOs... never could get into it. Only tried to play an MMO game called Conquer. It was ver weird for my taste.
RTS games. Company of Heroes pwns!
RTS is the MAIN reason for a PC IN MY OPINION. its definitely the one genre it absolutely destroys consoles at, and until a good RTS/TBS game makes it to consoles (not Halo wars that sh!t isn't a real RTS) PC's will have that absolute advantage over it. when I can play a Total War game on my PS3, then we have real competition =O
The part that really made me laugh is "the average pc gamer drains his wallet.. awaits crysis 2.. etc" . The article seems to have forgetton the average part . The average pc gamer is worried weither or not their specs can indeed run starcraft 2 , some upcoming mmos ,and source based games smoothly
Almost every PC can run SC2, MMOs and Source.
you didnt get my point . Just look at related spec subjects , and you'll see people checking those infos out . Someone with an high end pc doesnt really need to check . The truth of the matter is the average pc doesnt drain their wallet , they play popular games wich are designed for low to medium machines like the ones we mentioned . We all know blizzard even make a point of having everything running well on every machines . Crytek loved to blame the initial slow start of crysis on piracy , but truth is most people didnt feel like buying a new graphic card or changing their pc , for just that one game . The article as a whole feel like a fanboy's wetdream , regardless of the actual greatness of pc gaming
You can build a PC at ecollegepc.com for less than 500 dollars that's more than twice as capable compared to the recommended (not minimum) requirements for Starcraft 2. And that includes 110 dollars paid for the OS.
I'm a pc gamer, but i won't really say we are more hardcore.
another needless attempt to garner hits through faux controversy, gets some of the more vocal folks here up in arms and fighting. We are all gamers and I would dare say that most of us in some fashion game on the PC as well as consoles. We may not have rigs that can run games at the highest settings but we are also PC gamers non the less. Personally I game on the 360 and Ps3 about 80% of the time. But I will also play counterstrike and TF2 with my friends on Steam. Or maybe you play free flash games or MMO's. So this PC gamers are more hardcore is quite silly, all gamers who devote their time, money, and enthusiasm on gaming are hardcore. The old folks who line up everyday to play the wii at nursing homes, they are hardcore. If you love gaming you are hardcore. I know that may seem a bit overly optimistic and saccharine, but I really feel that way. We all have so much more in common than we are willing to admit sometimes, its silly to allow some hit hungry site divide us.
... really matter who's more hardcore? I couldn't give a shit, as long as I'm enjoying the games I want to play which i feel more able to do with my PS3 than my PC. In saying that as previously mentioned, i play most of my RTS games on my low spec laptop. Plus i like having my laptop with me when i'm playing, does that make me not hardcore?...
I didn't read the article. I just came to voice my disappointment in the title. Nine things? Really? Couldn't go for that EXTRA thing to make it a nice, solid ten?!
If I was a pc only -gamer, I'd be offended by that list because it mostly indicates how dumb pc gamers really are according to the author. It says, for example, that they are willing to upgrade their computer for some mediocre shooter and use hard earned dollars/euros/pounds for that.
I think in general PC Gamers like working on computers and showing them off. It's like someone who likes working on cars and getting the best performance out of them. This is what makes them more hardcore, they aren't intimidated by the machine and aren't afraid to open it up.
I guess I'm super double hardcore then, since I have a PS3, a broken 360 and a computer that can probably handle any retail game out there (even though I've only ever bought two games for it, both to play online with friends who don't have consoles) .... Still, I'd trade all this in for a penis longer than a quarter of an inch.
Its not really the games you play..but how much you play and how dedicated you are to playing...like i could be a hardcore bejeweled player...getting highest score..figuring out all the quarks etc...but I could be a casual Killzone player and only play it a few times a week..for short amount of time...not really caring for stats. This whole labeling crap just doesnt work.
Cause they have easier access to porn?
is kind of a misplaced word here. While I agree the PC has the most vast, varied and best looking games hands down. PS3 and 360 have some pretty hardcore games....Demon's Souls anyone....man that game was sweet. But the PC get's 95% of all console games and they look soooo much better. The consoles struggle to produce 30 frames per second at 720p while PC games run at 1080p, 1200p, 1400p, 1600p or higher at frames over 60.....shit, when I installed portal for free from steam it ran at 300 frames per second constantly through the whole game...I assume 300 frames was the cap. Not to metion, espeasially with windows seven...all the old games play on the PC...I am replaying Baldurs Gate 2 and Icewind Dale 1 on my laptop....and Damn.....those games SHIT on Dragon Age and Mass effect (Gameplay wise)...they were created when Bioware/Black Isle knew RPG's. As far as draining our wallets....when you can afford to have all consoles and handhelds, 3 HD TV's and 3 gaming PC's and a laptop for oldschool games....and still pay your house note, car payment ect.....gaming does not even come close to draining you wallet....some of us have freaking jobs and buy whatever the hell we want when we want it. Not to mention, when you buy a quality graphics card it has a lifetime warranty....when a new card comes out that you want....that's always magically about the time the card starts "overheating" and you simply take it to bestbuy for an exchange....that is, if you know what your doing:)
What can I say? PC it only does everything!!!
haters gonna hate.
they are more hardcore because they spend all of their life savings on a high end pc which only under 100,000 of the world's population can afford, i mean.. you could buy a car for the same price, and all i want to do is play high end games on the max settings
