In a lot of ways this is true. The PC no longer dominates the gaming market like it used to. The reason they don't produce games exclusively for PC nearly as much is because they mostly consist of niche titles with large fan bases (Blizzard or Valve).

Console generations are what cause the PC to roll over. Most of the technology has been readily available for years, but console cycles are beginning to slow down, hence, we've seen probably the smallest jump in the sp... #6

Oh sweet, I finally get to play on the monolith from 2001: a space odyssey. #24

8.5/10 is considered a troll review? Some of you guys need to gain perpsective here. #4

I've always thought the argument against the Call of Duty games was silly and it's further vindicated by the fact that great developers like using dynamic engines, regardless of how old they are. Look at Valve and Rockstar. Look at how little Crytek has achieved despite the fact that they frequently upgrade their engine. Yes, Call of Duty always looks the same, you know why? Because it appeals to a market that expects the experience to be a certain way, every single time. You think Ca... #36

On the same token, most of the posters on N4G are entirely humourless, rarely pick up on the sarcasm in a huge number of articles and are generally conservative mugs that adhere to a strict outline of what is good and what is bad without allowing for any "against-the-grain" opinions.

Two can play that game. #1.1.2

There isn't any real reason to hate him anymore, but people choose to stubbornly despise his success. He's the best player on the planet, pure and simple. After game 6 against the Celtics last year, I think people need to look at the kind of phenomenal player he is. Yes, I think he should have a cover and I'm a Blazers fan. #11

I think the misconception with 60fps is that it apparently doesn't offer the "cinematic" experience of 30fps.

This video is impressive, but it still doesn't translate to really playing the game at that clip. It is unmatched, poetry in motion when you get to feel that detail at it's very best. I'll always have a place for consoles, but when a game comes along with this much mouthwatering destruction, I like to appreciate it at 60fps. I sincerely hope... #12.1

DS3 needed to sell about 5 million units to be profitable for EA. I doubt it'll get there. A testament to EA's destruction of a potentially classic franchise. #1.1.1

I worked for EB Games last year (Australian GameStop contingent), and staff go to varying lengths to pre-sell (getting pre-orders and creating hype) the product to customers. The store I worked at was consistently in the top 12 in the company, a lot of that came from the number of pre-orders we made on Assassin's Creed 3. Our numbers were so good that each member of staff got a free copy of the Freedom edition from Ubisoft. We're not supposed to tell customers this, and I'm not su... #6.1.3

Welcome to the EA sausage factory, where everything is churned out repeatedly like clock work to satisfy to lowest common denominator of weak-willed gamer.

I love Battlefield 3, if only because the gap between 2 and 3 gave the second game room to grow. Now that EA has officially killed Medal of Honor (a fine example of a robotic, shell-like, market-meeting criteria title) they've turned to their genre staple to wave the flag for run-into-the-ground, disposable, annual rel... #1.1.7

The problem with the Vita (and the issue the PSP had) was that publishers look at the device as a "me too" gaming system. The games released for it are lesser incarnations of their console brethren. I'm not at all bashing the system, but unless they can market amazing games like Gravity Rush to appeal to the masses, it isn't going to get the required funding or full support from its developers.

The DS is treated by Nintendo as one of their strongest platform... #2

Has anyone read or seen The Road? I'm surprised no game journalist ever mentions it as a comparison to The Last of Us. The similarities are there and I wouldn't be surprised in the slightest to find that the story unfolds in the same way.

Yeah, you should read The Road. Amazing book. #11

The way Levine dealt with it is important. He didn't shun the guy because of his beliefs. They both sat down to gain perspective. That's something the gaming community needs to take with them. I'm not even remotely religious, but this helps me understand that you can't go and dissuade others when they can provide a different angle for the game.

Props to both parties here, we have a better game because of it. #12

The release schedule this year is ridiculous, no two ways about. I know people will argue for the upper echelon games to be the best of the year. The Last of Us, Watch Dogs, Killzone Shadow Fall, GTA V, but honestly, nothing comes close to this. The level of ambition is unmatched. Who the hell makes games like this? It has the technical prowess, the incredible art design, the rich world, the gameplay mechanics, the story, the enemy variety. I loved Bioshock, but Ken Levine and Irrational have... #4

I'm kind of hoping someone doesn't read the article and writes a lengthy post, just to get disagreed into oblivion. #3

This "article" is obscene. From the cherry-picked comments taken from N4G (the worst gaming community website on the internet) to pigeonholing an entire group of gamers. I play the majority of my games on the PC and I’m still thoroughly excited about the prospect of a new generation of consoles. I sincerely hope this is the only traffic this guy (seemingly the Bill O’Reilly of the gaming world) ever sees.

Seriously, how did any of the people over these 4 pages suck-... #95

I'm pretty sure no one in this comment section realises that VRAM is different to system RAM?

None the less, that is quite a lot of VRAM. #13

A lot of people also prefer performance over visuals. Killzone as a game and as a series is suited to the 30fps number because it's a little more methodical with its approach to gameplay. However, if someone said Killzone 2 ran at 60fps, (meaning better controller response too) I'd take it in a second.

It doesn't surprise me in the slightest that the game runs at 30fps nor do I think it's a problem. I'm sure it'll be a trend for the console. There will... #22.1

Yerli's problem is that he only ever talks about the goddamn visuals. I loved Crysis and Warhead too, but the dude has to realise that he's digging bigger holes when he boasts ONLY about the tech and never the actual content of the game. #10

I think a lot of people misconstrue Sterling as someone that doesn't like games because he's overtly "harsh" towards triple A titles. The man is just completely honest. He evidently loves the industry and The Jimquisition just goes to show how much he really does. Another great episode. #2.1
