    not anymore, now they're just coping that games are shit so they don't need new hardware or some shit like that

      quite the opposite

          meanwhile the pc player are enjoying actual genre that won't ever come to pc

          • 2 weeks ago

            There are no exclusive PC games worth a shit. Strategy games get ported to consoles with mouse and keyboard support these days, ie AoE.

            • 2 weeks ago

              Nah, i think PC is alot better, especially with game selection and mods, but im not "better" than anyone for the platform i use.

              Pic related is not on console, but its some of the peak gameplay of the genre.

              There's literally thousands of them.
              Meanwhile, consoles have no exclusives no more, nor reasons to keep games as a hostage to one system.

              • 2 weeks ago

                You can run most of those via an older build of Windows on an Xbox. Not exclusive.

      My GPU is a 970 which was made in 2014, and before I got it I was gaming on potato rigs and I somehow managed to finish GTA 5 on one because they optimized it that well, I just looked at the ground most of the time.
      The only game I struggled to run in recent times on even low settings was Cyberpunk and I had to tone down the resolution for the first time in years, I don't play a lot of trAAAsh, and most of the new games I play run fine.

      • 2 weeks ago

        GTA V is really well optimized. You can play it even with a Geforce 210 and it's somewhat playable.

        • 2 weeks ago

          Yea man, what Rockstar did with GTA 5 proved that larger companies are just too lazy to optimize their own games, their development scheme is always just:
          >publisher (actually the parent company) demands new game
          >millions of dollars thrown at high-end graphic artists and even more on marketing
          >plan for the DLC that will come out
          >gameplay development is just "don't be too complicated for casuals"
          >release game
          >release the DLCs that were planned beforehand one after the other, incorporating a few tweaks and bugfixes now and then
          >completely abandon game and move to next game
          And that leaves little room for actual competence.

    >Do PC players actually feel they are superior because they have more expensive hardware parts
    Most of us literally managed to build a PC capable of beating the shit out of console competition specs-wise, for the same price or cheaper than the consoles go nowadays at full price.

    The actual superiority of PC comes from its unrivaled, enormous gaming library, which consists of just about every single game released in the past 50 years. No "generation" gaps, no exclusivity memes, emulation lets ya play even console trash, and mods expand the already huge library even further.

    Not only that, but PC is well known for its open nature and insane volume of choices and options:
    >Want to disable all special effects and lower resolution and texture quality to N64 levels, but enjoy 3000 fps? You can do it.
    >Wanna play on 5 monitors at once? Go right ahead!
    >Not a KB+Mouse fan? Plug in ANY controller ever created and configure it to your liking.
    >Deep and edgy game with manly men characters turning you gay? Mod them into cute animu cat girls!
    >Game's servers went offline? Host your own, dedicated one!
    >Game breaking bug ruining the experience, or one of your components failing out of the blue? Fix it all yourself, if you got the knowhow! No need to wait for official patches or ship your device to the manufacturer.

    And that's not even touching upon the vast multitasking capabilities, and the fact that you can make a full blown video game with PC, sell it, and live sweet life.

    >they have more expensive hardware
    no hardware isn't the issue with consoles, it's arbitrarily restricted software. I can play any fps with a mouse whereas a console player can only do that in the rare case of a dev deciding to do a specific publicity campaign with crossplay.

    The mentally ill ones that have nothing else going on in their lives probably do but I imagine that’s a small minority. Most people just play games and don’t sperg about hardware unless they have nothing to play.

    >more input options (MKB, controller, driving wheel, HOTAS)
    >more output options (desktop, couch + TV, projector, handheld if you count Deck)
    >exclusive genres unplayable on anything other than MKB (RTS, grand strategy, 4X, point 'n clicks, city builders, management sims, to some extent CRPGs)
    >can emulate everything below PS4 gen
    >a metric fuckton of games unavailable on consoles getting released every week
    The only worth consoles have is exclusives and being more cost-effective at displaying pretty graphics. Which don't matter unless you're a graphicswhore

  8. 2 weeks ago

    No we're superior because we can play the vast majority of games that have ever existed.

    I have been gaming for at least an hour or more per day, 6-7 days a week, for the past 24 years. The day I first powered on my new pc a decade ago, I have never looked back. Consoles detest me now. They are slower, clunkier in design and practice, and require more peripherals with cheaper build and intended obsolescence. Consoles have less customization options, less freedom of use and scope, the modding capabilities are stunted and grotesque like a disfigured midget in comparison to a decent pc.
    Why would I buy a new console+controllers+tv+headset+etc every 4 years when I can simply catch a new mid grade gpu on sale every few years instead? Consoles are a fucking joke in my eyes. I haven’t seen a console exclusive game that left me with an ounce of regret that I don’t own one, in more than 12 years. Every time I see these threads, I roll my Fucking eyes and scroll past, but you seem genuinely curious OP so I wanted to see why the fuck anyone WOULD EVER WANT to own a console? Please tell me. Because I can’t see a single redeeming fucking quality of owning the newest shitbox vs. upgrading my pc.

    It's not a matter of superiority, just different priorities.
    For one that mostly plays AAA and well-known indies, a console is perfectly adequate.
    For one that enjoys diving into lesser-known indie games, older titles, and modding, the increased flexibility and lower barrier of entry (for developers) on PC is very nice.
    Having the option of piracy is also excellent for those without compunctions about it.
    So I guess if you have an obsessive need to make some kind of gamer hierarchy then I'd probably say console players are overall more casual than PC players, but that's okay.

      morons have the most deep seated generational insecurity of anyone else on this planet. it's extremely difficult for them to be humble about anything, because morons have literally nothing. not even a traceable lineage anymore.

      they have no culture beyond the material juden whoring them out further. this is probably as close to a "great job son!" from his dad he'll ever get. just consooming product. sad.

    I feel superior because I can have the experience you buy a console for, PLUS more or less every videogame ever made, PLUS mods, PLUS higher quality graphics and faster framerates with whatever controller I want for any game. I have everything a console would have, plus so much more, because I built a PC. That is, objectively, superior.

  19. 2 weeks ago

    PC can emulate almost anything.
    You can play Gamepass on PC. You can use controllers on PC. You can feed your display through a TV if you're so inclined. I don't know why you wouldn't use a PC

    It's a stressful thing more than anything.

    What could be wrong?
    A billion stuff.
    Then your machine slowly gives issues...

        Try troubleshooting orange DRAM lights on a mobo then. Random crashes that only occur periodically without giving any more info in event viewer.
        Bad BIOS, bad driver, bad cable, bad PSU, bad power source... Whatever. Could be anything.
        A couple minutes, my ass.
        I'm not talking about easy shit to fix, you stupid arrogant amerimutt. I'm not tech illiterate.
        And to troubleshoot any of that you'd have to change every part over a long period of time to see if it happens again.
        So you're spending your free time on that crap. That's a bad example of owning a PC. Stuff happens.

      I honestly enjoy troubleshooting. No, it's not normal.

    I don't feel superior, but PC gaming is superior. I don't feel like I'm above a console gamer because I'm having a better experience. I'm really into gaming and I need a high end PC for my hobbies as well as my career, so I have plenty of good reasons to justify the extra expense.

    It's a fact that PC is the best platform for gaming, but that doesn't mean its the best choice for everyone.

    I don't say I'm superior, but what I want is to have the greatest availability of games possible, and if that's what you want too, then PC is the only thing that makes sense. Even my old laptop with an integrated gpu off an i5 from 2014 can play vastly more games than any console I've ever owned.

  34. 2 weeks ago

    Consolefags think that playing on PC is like playing on a console but with graphics on High. Actually the difference is that the PC is an open platform while consoles are closed.
    This difference affects the whole experience. Device compatibility, freedom to edit files, custom content, support for old games, ability to backup saves and entire games, ability to create servers etc.
    This is not for everyone, obviously. There are people who simply prefer the convenience of a console, even if it loses the ability to go deeper.

  35. 2 weeks ago

    All systems are PCs, retardOPkun.

    The "pc"s you refer to are the ones that don't exist merely to double dip on consumers with superfluous physical DRM, so vast in its capabilities it can make itself into those other systems (except far better.)

    Your "console" of choice is only a means for corporations to squeeze you for more money like the dumb bitch you are, which is way to pay a toll to use your internet with it.
