Consoles Vs PCs: Why I'm A PC Gamer

Lifehacker: "I haven’t bought a console since the original Xbox back in 2001. Why? I already have a gaming machine with better graphics, a better controller and more flexibility… and it didn’t cost much either. I’m talking, of course, about a PC."

" I already have a gaming machine with better graphics, a better controller and more flexibility".....Ok I get it so just shut and go and play your awesome games on PC like Arkham Knight....oh wait!!

DevilOgreFish1621d ago

Pc has more games than that, and Those developers already said they were at fault and have been talking care of it.

xHeavYx1621d ago

I've heard that "PC has a lot more games" thing before, but when I ask what pc only games there are that are worth playing, I get lists that include mostly point and click games.
Thankfully for me, I'm not into those games.

nowitzki20041621d ago (Edited 1621d ago )


Arma 3? Amnesia? Assetto Corsa? Cities Skylines? Elite: Dangerous? The Forest? Race Room?

And "point and click games"? Like Dota 2? LOL? This War of mine?

Theres many many more. If you cant find them then you are not looking. And by the way.. Most of the games you play are multiplats which are on PC and run much better on a PC that has the right hardware.

xHeavYx1621d ago

That's the best you have to offer?
So, yeah, you PC guys have prettier graphics, personally, I prefer console games. To each their own though.
Oh, and by the way, GO SPURS.

nowitzki20041621d ago (Edited 1621d ago )

OMG a SPURS fan? When did you jump on that bandwagon?

Best I got? I got a PS4 and only buy exclusives and games I will play MP with friends. Face it, most of the time you game its multiplats. Exclusives aren't the only thing, last great one either console really had is Bloodborne back when? and those multiplats look much better than any PS4 game I have owned. Saying PC does not have exclusives is like saying xbox one or PS4 doesn't. Those point and click games? cant work on consoles. Check out Total War Rome or Atilla and just look at how many units there are on screen and when you zoom in the detail is still amazing. That's why I game on PC. Love my PS4 but its second to my PC.

Edit: Back to basketball. Am I supposed to hate the Spurs? Or feel like I am below you somehow? lmao. Im a huge basketball fan and respect the Spurs. Tim Duncan is one of the nicest guys to ever play the game and he was an even better basketball player. Love the Spurs, one of the greatest teams in NBA history is the Tim Duncan era Spurs. And they win because just about every player is an international player... Tim Duncan as well.

xHeavYx1621d ago

Did you just say that multiplat games look better than exclusives? I think you got your wires crossed.
Also, I didn't say that PC has no exclusives. I said that PC exclusives are mostly (and it sounds redundant, yes) PC type games, like point and click games (Like Total War), or MP 1st person shooters (before you say anything, if you research my comment history you'll see that I don't care for 1st person shooters, even though I got a bit hooked with Destiny) and, personally, I don't care much about those games.

About your little basketball rant, it was just a little joke from a Spurs fan to a Mavs fan.

Yep... and mutiplatform games always run perfectly on consoles... oh wait!!

WellyUK1621d ago

he's hardly missing anything tbh it's not like AK is masterpiece. Now TLoU and Uncharted etc yes.

Stapleface1621d ago

TLOU was not a masterpiece. It used a recycled storyline and nothing in that game was new to gaming. No new mechanics, no new physics, nothing ground breaking at all, and it only looked good for a console game at the time. It's was an ok game that the devs cut out part of the storyline to sell as dlc. The only dev that gets praised for that. You cut away as the girl at that part. Then start up exactly where you cut off when you start the dlc. lol

nowitzki20041621d ago


So you must not have played TLOU? Anyone who says its not a masterpiece, I would bet did not play it.

Highlife1621d ago

Yes it's a masterpiece just because you don't like it doesn't change the awards and acclaim the game received. Mario Galaxy is considered a masterpiece I don't like it but know that it is. You don't have to hate on things you don't like.

Funny part is most PC gamers whine about 4k setup when they only play games at 1080p.. PC is up gradable so its obvious that it will always be ahead but then Consoles has the best games and all i have seen is pc gamers need to write petitions that those games should release on PC... I am a console gamer and i see no reason why i should invest so much on a pc... Also most devs supports Consoles over PC.

nowitzki20041621d ago (Edited 1621d ago )

1080p on PC plus 60 fps.. You usually get 900p and barely manage 30fps. Plus that's just a small part, loading distances are greater, textures are better, there can be more npcs on screen, shadows, lighting, and any other detail you can think of is better... and my 970 does all that at 1080p at a smooth 60fps on a game like the Withcer 3. Been a console gamer my whole life, got a PS4 and love it, best exclusives. Built my first rig in Feb and its the best thing I have done as a gamer, for far more reasons than 1080p and 60fps.

1080p on PC and 1080p on PS4 are far from the same thing... UC3 was 1080p on PS3... SO it looks like 1080p PS4 games then right?

ShottyGibs1619d ago

@ nowitzki2004

Said it all. I'm in the same boat and couldn't agree more.
PC Multiplatforms from the last generation still look better than the vast majority of games on my PS4.

@ Masterfox

Hmm troll much lately?

Have a PC and consoles, but I'm mostly a PC gamer. Consoles are only for exclusives.

TwoForce1621d ago

Yeah, but not everyone have enough money to build a powerful pc. Other people prefer console because it's very easy to set up, plug in an play. I prefer console because opinions. I play multiplatform games on PS4. It's just a opinion. No hard feeling, will ya ?

freshslicepizza1621d ago

this is the ideal situation imo. you get the best of both.

nowitzki20041621d ago (Edited 1621d ago )

Same here. Love my PS4 but I only buy exclusives and games I will play with friends online. Witcher 3, MGSV, Mad Max, Fallout 4 etc PC ONLY!

OldDude1621d ago

Ditto. There is another article on how The Orders engine runs at 60fps on PC on N4G right now. That's why I game on PC and exclusives on Console. PC is for those that want the highest graphical fidelity and best frame rate. I am tired of shoddy ports however on some games.

Stapleface1621d ago

Same. I can't see having only one. Currently I have a pc, and ps4. Hopefully by the end of the year I'll have an XB1 added to that list. Too many good games on all platforms to choose only one.

You can't have a website name like "," and expect people to come visit your website mate.

Also, play and enjoy what you want, no need tell people what they should be doing.

IrishSt0ner1621d ago (Edited 1621d ago )

FYI lifehacker is a very popular decade old tips website, which is ranked 400 globally in all internet traffic.

N4G is ranked 4230.

I've seen tonnes of cool information coming through lifehacker over the years.

But but, one regional post doesn't prefer my console which is objectively inferior, those damn hacker pirates /smh

duplissi1621d ago

Lol, Lifehacker is a very popular website... Irish already stated the facts.

aquaticDonut1621d ago

I used to be really ignorant teacher and thought made fun of my friend who was a PC gamer in middle school, because I thought PC gaming was impractical and ridiculous. Now, I realize how ridiculous I was and have been a PC gamer for several years now. Except for the odd console for exclusives.
