GGG: "Just how do we hate PC gamers? Let us count the ways."
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.
So much hate on N4G.
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.
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.
"Agent-86 + 15h ago 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.

best article ive seen on N4G in a while. the article is on POINTTTTTT, freakin hate those annoying basterds
@ SasanovaS1987 above.... There is a reason you are losing bubbles. Can you see why?
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.
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.
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.
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
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.
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...
...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
Wow nice picture but WTF? Its not hard to read that yuo konw if you hvae teh frist adn lsat ltters corecrt yuo cna sitll raed it.
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.
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.
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.
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
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.
lol, "... Burn him on a blu-ray". That was pretty funny =D
What that girl in article picture has written down is completely false information. I'll prove it, right now.

I noticed that the letters weren't in their corrects orders, but I was able to read it perfectly. Interesting stuff!
Vrey wlel siad
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
Keep on hatin', that's all people seem to do on this site. http://files.sharenator.com...
Can we all just get along?
Don't speak of that in here. They'll burn you.
funny how the world is right now. Imagine how it would be if we could all get along, all because people dont trust each other its ridiculous. But same time they have the right too, and i dont blame them its a shame tho
yea, there's totally not enough hate on the internet & in gaming...
you cant hate PC gamers they are AWESOME and we were the at some point, yu guys remember Runescape?
Everything about this web site is such utter shit.
A lot of them are full of themselves. They only seem to complain about games and never seem happy about gaming.
What's with the (f)lame title? Sorry kids, no hits for your website.
haha that was relatively funny and if you don't think so you are taking things way too seriously.
I'm sorry, I was so busy having fun on my PC, I didn't quite catch your list... UPDATE: Checked out your list after having a bunch of fun. Your list is poorly constructed and full of half-truths and gorilla dust. I would recommend you sue your school for its inability in preparing you for the rigors of compound sentences and critical thinking.
So you called us all those names, and you wonder why we hate YOU? I'm sorry but JESUS CHRIST you stubborn bastard. Go die. PS3 and Xbox and even Wii are good ways to play games, I just like my PC because I can upgrade, it's like a hobby. So I wont hate you if you don't hate me.
I have no problem with PC gamers or any gamer so long as they not trolls or haters for no particular reason. The one thing that does get my goat is when you will be quite happily discussing a game like uncharted or Killzone and some PC Fanboy will interject a comment like my gaming rig makes Killzone look like shite compared to Crysis. Yes maybe butit is pointless comparing pc and consoles.... ugh
Killzone and Uncharted look great. There, a pc gamer said it.
Thank you :)

Some good points.
HAHAHAA That Red Shirt Guy Clip is funny as hell. I didn't know people like that really existed. Love the looks on the guys' faces. "Thanks for pointing that out"
No reason to hate. Just because we have the most powerful gaming platform and we can easily run all the games that are on the consoles at 60fps...
60?? Your PC must SUCK!!! Real PC gamers will be able to run it at 2560 x 1600 at 120 fps with everything on. Consoles can't even do more than 1920 x 1080. Not that I care cause my PC can't even run half life 1 at more than 30 fps with everything off LOL. Hence the reason I game on the PS3. Gonna upgrade my PC next year though, for just one game. rFactor 2. rfactor2+G27+Clubsport pedals = sim heaven.
My PC doesn't suck. It's an average computer. But i'm sure it's better than yours :D .
Majority of Console games are 720p.30/60 FPS. Why the hell should a console run higher res than 1080p? At the moment I dont know about a single Tv that is compatibler with any higher Res. (that is available) 30 fps is not that bad, prefer 60 though. 120... who can tell it apart from 60-80fps? Consoles have no need to run 1080p + res, and 60fps is just sweet. Sim Heaven = GT5 + a good wheel set. Anyways. No reason to hate pc gamers. I dont even have my own pc at the moment but I grew up with pc and it was my main plat until I was 12 at least. Good old days with The original Unreal game, AVP 2, Jurassic Park: OG and a few more. Ps + pc = just sweet. Ill definatively build a monster rig as soon as I have saved up enough money. When I was a kid I also played a lot of AMIGA games... I loved the amiga. :C
well no one is saying wecan't run all of them on pc... we just wont . At least not without a console as well , or later on an emulator . Of course this is the usually the magical time someone point out he doesnt care for any console games . So then i'd say in advance , why do you argue and care then ? :p
10. PC fanboys can be elitist, but we should be hating all fanboys right? 9.Halo and fighters are also used in this "E-sports", so argument fail. 8. 360 has same problem. maybe not as wide spread, but look at anyplace to pirate games and you'll find 360 games just as easily. not to mention more PC gamers will talk about great Steam deals before talking about best places to pirate. 7.can't look much more like an ass than in this reasoning. your a nerd, get over it. same goes for you people joining fantasy football leagues. 6.we all are graphics whores. if we weren't, we would still be playing on the NES. not to mention Indie games have a huge market on the PC. they don't tend to have the best graphics either. 5.really no need to get into the cost argument. if you believe this argument there just is no hope for you. 4.? look at the hours people put in to COD. 3.PS3 owners where crying about Infamous 2 character design. another poor argument. 2.??? yep thats weird. google modded 360 or PS3, and you'll find some weired anime stuff as well. 1.leet speak is an internet thing. populated because of message boards, and is currently used mostly in jest. probably used more often in 360 FPS than anywhere else now a days. fail again. i can only hope this was written with some kinds of humor in mind. problem being, i think it fails harder if humor is suppose to be the writers goal. nothing they wrote was remotely humors.
I am offended by this article. Why do people need to hate on us PC gamers? Because they can play games Full 1080p?
Why must you PC gamers bring up graphics in every argument? That's one reason people hate PC gamers, is because it seems all you guys care about is graphics, since I never see discussions about the actual game itself, I only see discussions about the technical specs and graphical properties. The amount of time PC gamers spend talking about it makes me think you guys don't give two sh*ts about the game at all, and only care about bragging that you spent $600+ on your awesome rig. Obviously that only applies to the elitists, but I see more elitists than gamers who just play on PC. When you're comparing games and all of your bullet points for your game being better include only graphics (or m/kb, since controls are subjective), then you're not a gamer, you're a graphics whore. I'm also not saying console gamers have their faults, I'm simply listing one reason that some PC gamers piss me off.
If that were so, then why the hell are Counter-Strike: Source and TF2 still so popular on PC? They have bad graphics, yet are some of the most popular games.
Because PC gamers put that in the classics category and like to brag that they are the best damn players in existence, and anyone who plays any console fps is just a moronic noob who isn't hardcore like they are. If they're not bragging about their awesome rigs and better graphics, then they're bragging about their "L337 skillz", and how everyone else is just a p*ssy for not playing a hardcore FPS like Counter Strike. Again, I'm not saying console gamers don't have their hangups, I'm just pointing out a few things about SOME PC gamers that piss me off.
PS3 has RAM issues that bog the system down compared to the 360. yes i am obviously trolling but with facts!!!! goodbye bubbles!
PS3 compensates with much higher memory bandwidth.
i meant like when you want to multi-task on the PS3. GT5 really annoys me in this factor since i love to listen to my own music in game, i know GT5 allows you to use you're own music but the system they use is pitiful, i would like to be able to skip a track or replay a song in a race
This should go well...
Seriously! The troll who wrote this article has brains???I think not.PC has got the most releases evry year.Not evry genre of gaming run on consoles,but all of them runs on pc.There is little something called modding and it does not take 10$ extra for each release.Calculate how many 10$ extra you have paid.We only need one decent graphics card to run a console generation.Our only problem-Pirates!But that affects all hardwares.Plus where does the games on consoles produced??In pc's.Plus we not only play games,we make them,beautify them and last them longer than our console counterparts.
Whatever platform you like it's still just an appliance. Are there forums for dish washers, refrigerators etc where people argue which brand is better??
