Wow, no reason for the hate. I don't hate console gamers. In fact, I've owned several consoles in the past (Genesis, PS1 and PS2) and currently own a PS3. I love my PC gaming and my console gaming. In fact, I think that the PC and PS3 make an incredible combo. Before you 360 gamers get upset, I just think the PS3 makes a better complement to my PC gaming because most 360 exclusives are also on PC (so I get those and multiplats on the PC) and the PS3 exclusives are truly exclusive (plus cover more genres). I have nothing against 360 gamers, but it just wasn't the right choice for me.

Every medium has its fanboys. There are elitists in every arena. I'm willing to bet in space there are teenage aliens that snicker and sneer at the other kids who only use 1.5T GPUs and only use light years in their hard drives instead of the obvious choice, Polyfixane double enriched titanium spheres.

Don`t get it confused, it not just N4G it`s human beings in general.

@below

You must be one of those kids who never has left his gated community. Trust me, there is alot of stuff going on outside the burbs.

antz11042707d ago

Lol at above, really? Let me think......nope, its N4G :D

@ BeOneWithTheGun

Clever analogy. Yup, there are always elitists and there are always angry fanboys.

As for this total flamebait article...way to make an already ugly thing a little worse. The writer of this thing could have at least taken the time to say, at the start, that SOME PC Gamers do these things and/or act this way, not all of them.

The writers will, of course, then say, "Hey, this was all in fun!" Even then, doesn't matter. Look at the posts on here. They've already fed the fire. Way to go you asshats.

as a pc gamer.

Even i didn't take this article seriously. It actually seems to be aimed at pc gamers as I'm not even sure console kids know what he's talking about.

there's a deep hate for pc fps gamers here so I'm guessing that's the reason for it. He actually names cs as the culprit so all I will say is.

It's ok, take a deep breath and relax. Cs players have been playin for years at this point. any console player trying it for the first time will get gang banged twice over thus resulting in console player getting angry to the point where he will write a top 10 list of why pc gamers are bad.

I just joined here a few days ago and why the hell should we hate pc-gamers? Such thing should not get approved. I have a PS3 but PC Gaming is great too.

^ Silk road... FlyFF... only good games on PC... rest on PS3 with better graphics and content....

Erm. Ok then.
Judging by yer previous post, I must say, you're pretty talented.

ct032707d ago

I don't hate console gamers. I don't even hate the consoles themselves.

When I point out the great things about PC games, I do it to get some console gamers interested in them. I want more people to experience games at their very best.

Why do we keep stressing how inexpensive gaming PCs are, how you DON'T need to upgrade them all the time etc? Because we want more console gamers to join us.

PrimordialSoupBase2707d ago

Compare Thief to Splinter Cell Conviction. Compare Deus Ex to Invisible War. Compare Arma II to Operation Flashpoint: DR. etc.

There is an influx of stupid people with no patience playing consoles and the games that cater to them are, without fail, worse. PC is fast becoming the last platform where mechanically intricate (i.e better) games can thrive.

Baka-akaB2707d ago (Edited 2707d ago )

way to be part of the stereotype .

Dumb games exists on both , and games requiring skills exist on both .

The rest is part of both tradition in genres of games , and default hardware limitations or possibilities .

Let's not pick the silliest and most convenient examples , the game is playable from each side .

Cause it's hardly as if the most popular games on pc of each era , were those mechanically intricate games .

Last i check the only skill needed to play wow or the sims is free time

UnwanteDreamz2707d ago (Edited 2707d ago )

LMFAO For every great PC game that is released I can name 50 pieces of crap. Get over yourself and stop pretending that only the best can be found on PC.

Nothing against it because consoles are pretty much the same but my point is for every Pro I am sure someone has a Con.

Yep no reason for hate pc gamers.
But they are really annoying.

"We play better with mouse and keyboard" ... my @ss.

I can make better head shots kills with my controller. And still playing Counter Strike? WTF.

zagibu2706d ago (Edited 2706d ago )

I never knew headshots came in different qualities. But I also play with imprecise mouse and keyboard, and have never experienced the precision, accuracy, and speed of a gamepad controller, so it should be clear why I have to be content with regular headshots...

With sarcasm off: Can you also jump down some stairs, turn around in midflight and shoot your pursuer in the head, switch weapons, land at the bottom of the stairs and blast another guy away who was coming at you from below, using a gamepad controller? It is of course a rhetorical question...

PotatoClock2706d ago

...But we do play better with mouse and keyboard...

Obviously your a COD fan and can't get your head around a game that doesn't rerelease with an update every year. An exceptional game, like Counter-Strike, never becomes dated

Shackdaddy8362707d ago (Edited 2707d ago )

I hope this wasnt serious cus none of those were horrible reasons.

10)Im a PC gamer(also PS3 and xbx360) and I'm not an elitist. I just prefer PC over everything else.

9)I thought that e-sports was for consoles too. Anyways, that affects absolutely no one and if your bugged so much because of that then your an idiot.

8)People pirate everything. Not just PC games. Console games get pirated plenty.

7)Being a nerd is a complement imo. It means that you are smarter than the average person. A geek however is not a compliment and that can be found in console gamers and PC gamers.

6)This is stupid. Look how many people still play counter strike every day. We are not graphics whores. I just have an expensive rig because I'm obsessed with hardware and electronics(which is why I am getting a degree in Electrical Engineering).

5)A gaming PC that can play any game with maximum settings cost about 600-1000 dollars. Now, take into account all the money you save on games do to sales then its not that expensive at all.

4)Why the hell is this a reason to hate PC gamers? If thats the case, then I hate everyone who plays third person shooters.

3)Everyone complains. Not just PC gamers.

2)What are they trying to say here? We're obsessed with women? I dont get it. There isn't any description.

1)People only use this in name tags and they use it on console gamer tags too so I dont get whats wrong with this one.

Agent-862707d ago

Thank you Shackdaddy836. You make some excellent points, especially your first one. I prefer PC gaming, but also own a PS3 and not elitist about it. What I hate are these lists that are deliberately designed and titled to get hits and start flamewars.

pr0digyZA2707d ago

Agree with both of you. I for one prefer my PC, yet I still game alot on my 360 and PS3. Infact all of my PC friends have at least one if not both of the consoles so that they don't miss out.

-Alpha2707d ago (Edited 2707d ago )

Anyone with common sense wouldn't need the great counter response shackdaddy gave. It's evident that the list is a joke and I'm sure it was meant to be taken light-heartedly. Still, it's a stupid list

Ducky2707d ago (Edited 2707d ago )

Don't listen to him, he's a witch.
Burn him!

... Burn him on a blu-ray.

I found them all amusing, except for the e-sports one. Some people are just scary when it comes to games like Quake or Starcraft... and there's a ton of money involved too.

Pandamobile2707d ago (Edited 2707d ago )

It's funny cus I see the Number 1 reason to hate PC gamers in the gamer tags of XBL and PSN players more than anything.

Let's count out of the 100 Steam friends I have how many people have LEETSPEAK in their names:
0

Leetspeak is so 2000's

Letros2707d ago

Keep on hatin', that's all people seem to do on this site.
