WRONG!!!

PC games are the only place to find intricate and deep strategy, engaging intense rts, indy games that take chances, social games, mmo's, total conversions, free maps, mods, custimization

consoles are to video games what white castle is to fine dining
sure, it'll keep you alive and make you feel full, but, man is it the bottom of the barrel quality stuff

good luck gta4 is a horrible port the article is correct there are few pc games than can be played out of the box with 0 modding/fixing/patching.

From what I've heard - since Patch 7 it is playable. I don't know it yet - that I'll have to test out.

I don't see where the hate for Consoles is coming from - sincerely... I own a XBOX 360 and a full fledged gaming pc - I love 'em both. Sure, the Xbox isn't nearly as capable as my PC and sure the games are veeeeeery overpriced (I would never ever buy a new game for my xbox), but for just playing games I really don't want to fire up my PC every time...

The problem here are - and always will be - the developer of games. They tend to make shitty ports, they tend to develope with consoles in mind, they tend to put heavy DRM and such on the PC gaming crowd, but you have A LOT of Devs who know what they are doing - and they produce GREAT Games/Mods. The consoles aren't the reason for this, the devs/publishers/greedy bastards are, put the blame where it belongs. Consoles have definetly a right to be here - especially for the casual crowd.

And now stop flaming and enjoy games you like on the platform you like. I will always look down on all of you and laugh my ass off, because I simply have fun playing games and not going into silly flame wars about "elitism".
