^MGS is something I was going to quote. I reckon I'll be more impressed by the MGS 5 graphics than in any PC game ever.

Same with graphics. I absolutely love The Walking Dead Game for example.

People use the term frame rate to describe jumps in their game. Never actually thought about how inaccurate the expression is until now.

Jeez. Do you get commission for every time someone says they prefer PCs? I'm not trying to insult you personally mate. I just don't like it. I like nothing about the controls, can you even play 2 player? And I don't really like a single one of the main PC not-console games. It's like when people told me I need to get an Xbox because it had more games...like Halo and Gears of War? No thanks.

And for the record, had I known nothing about this stuff I probably wouldn't have finished top of my Games Development course.
If you can't tell the difference between SD and HD (no clue how this is even possible), then graphics aren't an advantage for you.

Frame rate, Hit already touched on that. Consoles lack the proper amount of frames per second (especially last gen and older consoles like the PS3), which make console versions of games play factually worse than PC versions. It's not an opinion, games that play at higher frames per second perform better and give a better gaming experience.

Yes, you can play 2 player. You can also use your TV as a monitor and sick back on the couch, or you can use a wireless keyobard/mouse, you can use any monitors/TVs/couch/chair/a hundred different controller methods/however you want to play, with a higher frames per second, better graphics, mods, and all at a cheaper price because games are cheaper on the PC. PC is about options, want to play using your TV as a monitor? Do it. Want to use a controller instead of a keyboard? Do it. Want better graphics? You have it. Don't like the field of view? Turn it up. Not a fan of the motion blur? Turn it off. Want to raise the resolution? By all means. Want to add mods to enhance the life of the game and make it last longer? Right on the mods are right over there, enjoy. Options my friend, options.

I have nothing against you not liking PC, I was just confused as to why given all the major advantages PC gaming has over console gaming. I like consoles just as much as I like PC gaming, as I said my 3DS/Wii U are my currently most played platforms I have, but I'd never say that consoles were superior to PC gaming.

Like the mgs series. And the DMC series.
Also it's much much much cheaper to own a ps4 than to own a good enough pc that can reach the bench marks you claim you get.

For a pc you'd probably spend money on the hardware every year. But the console you just get it and worry about the games .
That's why you won't like pc gaming if you don't like playing with the hardware ( like a true nerd ) .

And honestly for me I don't care about the graphics difference. It won't affect my opinions whatsoever. It's the gameplay that matters. And I can say that pc gaming probably is better.... thats why I'm giving it a shot.


Also it's nice to see nerds stick out for each other. You guys can be defensive about your pcs!! Lol
No, you do not need to upgrade your PC every year to out perform the PS4/play games. Any mid/low-range $500-600 PC out performs the PS4. The PS4 had outdated hardware before it was even released, game developers are already struggling to make every game 1080p, and most of those games at 1080p run at 30 frames per second (the bare minimum for a game to be playable). You can buy a mid range PC and not have to upgrade for quite a few years, unless you really wanted to.

If you want to get technical, most people don't believe the PS4/Xbox One will live longer than just a couple of years. You know why? Because the hardware is anemic and before the console even launched game developers were maxing out the console. 2 years from now the difference between PC and console will be higher than it has ever been because these "next gen" consoles weren't next gen even when they launched.

It's not about being "nerds", it's about correcting faulty information, just like any other topic. If you say something that's completely false and we correct it, it doesn't make us nerds, it makes us more educated on the subject and we feel we should correct you.

Bolded part is also untrue unless you just feel like upgrading every year.

Building a PC is more expensive but you aren't just building a gaming console. You are getting something that can do that and much much more so that is where the price comes in. The hardware is also at a higher level obviously making it more expensive. A gamin console is just a very small part of what an actual PC can do which makes sense as to why there is a price difference.

I enjoy both though. I will never own just a PC or just a Console. They both have a lot of good. They both have exclusive titles. I enjoy the console being small and much more portable so if I go out of town for an extended period of time I can just pack it up and go. Due to the price difference and the fact that people don;t feel like researching, building and troubleshooting a PC, I know more people that just have consoles. So it is always nice to have them to play with others.

PC I enjoy because of how amazing they are performance wise. Some people don't care about graphics or frame rate or whatever. I do though. The better the graphics, the better the immersion for me. I like having a game running at 1920x1080 that is killing it in the frame rate department. It just makes it that much more for me. Other people don't care and that's cool for them.

But that's just my piece. I generally try not to get too far into console/PC gaming because it is hardly ever a rational conversation on either side. And at the end of the day it doesn't matter. Whatever gets you going is what you should stick with.

I bought my PC used from a friend, it's about three years old and it runs next gen just fine.

My friend bought himself a beast of a PC that boots up in 2 seconds and is basically a spaceship. I wouldn't be surprised if it turned out to be Skynet.

I'm a geek, sure, but I'm just not into space games and "fantasy". I like something to be believable.

As for MC (whom I'm now SURE gets commission for every PC game sold), everything you mentioned with wireless etc. is the exact same for PS3? You can say your games run better...mine run fine. There is no stuttering, the graphics really depend on the game itself and isn't something I really care about. So what's the difference? I think you're LOOKING to dislike a console game. When I start up Black Ops, for like 4 seconds I can't click "Playstation Network" and need to let it load. If this was you, you'd already have your console turned off by then.

I don't have a SINGLE problem with my PS3's loading, "framerate", graphics...and I prefer the controller based gaming (plus, I only really play games socially which REALLY isn't how PC gamers like to play).

I'm really looking forward to the release of Star Citizen for the PC.

It's going to be the first AAA PC game in a long, long time that is made without consoles in mind, finally the true gaming power of the PC will be unleashed without the head developer saying 'Dude, you can't make it look that good... It'll never port to the console'.

The below trailer should be viewed full screen in 1080, and no - its not a cgi cut scene or trailer, it's actual gameplay.



And it will support Octlus Rift....
