>>692618267 My theory goes that casual gamers actually like games more than hardcore gamers, and have more fun playing them too. Hardcore gamers and pc fags don't have fun since all they do is complain. So therefore, we can deduce that consoles are superior.
>>692620555 They're superior because games are made to have fun with, something very lacking in the hardcore and PC crowd since all they do is complain when there is nothing to complain about. They're pathetic.
>>692619446 Not to mention the corporate greed. Trust me, I'm no socialist (I'm a fucking Jew when it comes to capitalizing), but the corporations that work in console gaming are just fucking greedy. First you pay enough money you could buy a used car for one console. Then you buy like thirty games for it. Then the next console comes out, and you have to basically pay the cost of another used car for it. Buy like twenty games. Next console comes out, waste money on that, buy a whole fucking collection of games and yet the console you play them on is worth more than the whole fucking collection. Next console comes out, repeat. It fucking sucks man. It's why I'm a PC gamer, because you're not going to get blackmailed to buy another better computer that costs as much as a shitty used car to restart everything on unless you want to actually play ARK: Survival Evolved.
>>692621111 >whole fued is stupid and was originally a joke that got outta hand Well some people make too big of a deal about the issue, but that's true of anything. I don't really care enough to try to change anyone's mind on the matter, but it's true that there is no real reason to be playing on consoles anymore.
>>692618267 > Some people don't care if it's dubstep or Country Music, They want to hear music. These "some people" you speak of don't exist. You don't just "play games", you have a specific type you're into
>>692621388 There isnt, you're correct. Not a consistent reason anyway. Exclusives are about it and I know full well PC is better but it's just retarded to argue about it, from both sides. Get over it and game. No reason to quarrel.
>>692621388 Not that anon I play all three. PC for when I have to babysit my regiment on warband consoles for when I have my brothers over and we Co op and get drunk. Reason enough for me to play console.
>>692618267 I want to enjoy them too. 60 FPS and good details are a minimum. >>692619605 >At least im white XB280HK Gsync 4K on a 780tI >>692620027 I'm going to spend 1000 when the 1080Ti comes out. Not wasting momey this time, I buy the real deal Classified with waterblock for ME:Andromeda.
>>692622291 no it is a bullshit reason, if you like something because you feel better you are an emotional faggot of a human being that lives his life according to his animalistic urges rather than his human potential he was gifted. use your brain or kill yourself. idc actually just stay far away from me
>>692621884 Even my shit PC can be upgraded to be better than a console. These parts are worth less than 100 €. I put in my old Titan X once and played BF4 in 4K on it, worked, even though bottlenecked through the CPU and 4 GB DDR2. 40 FPS drops @4K are still better than shitty Xbox.
If I was forced to use consoles I would always choose the PS4, it can at least do 1080p.
>>692622184 A PC is really just a bigger upfront cost with plenty of savings in the long run. A lot of old games are on PC that you probably would have missed on console that are literally 2 bucks on steam right now that will last you hundreds of hours.
>>692618267 I don't see a problem with this. I'm more of a casual gamer, and all I really need to fulfil my needs is a PS4. I could honestly care less about FPS or shit like that. Plus, PC gamers can't play game like Uncharted or TLOU so suck it nerds.
>>692622384 I don't get the high Hz meme, especially at 4K I would like to see a GPU that can handle 60 FPS. I sold my Titan X for this reason and suffer on 3 GB VRAM since, but I'm not spending a shitload of cash on something that can't deliver this experience.
I'm going to get the ACX 1070 as soon as it becomes avaiable, it should be still worth around 400 next year and do high settings relatively 'cheap'.
>>692622365 A level playing field for online multiplayer suits me A reasonable cost suits me The ability to buy second hand consoles/games that aren't 10 years outdated suits me The simplicity of coming home, pressing a single button and jumping into a game straight away suits me
You're a fucking retard if you believe consoles have no advantages over pc
>>692622635 I know, I always recommend to buy 2000 or 3000 i5/i7s combined with a 290(X). Extreme performance and only 300 €. I am not joking, you can get these old parts dirt cheap, if you don't expect them to look good. Spend 500 and you can even buy a nice case, PSU, RAM, SSD.
If you're not smart enough to build your own pc, you're not smart enough to play games right. I expect people on PC to be able to play as a team, you don't get that with the squeakers on console. As such pc is better if you care about the games itself
>>692622365 >>692622417 Boys, I have exclusively played console for the past few years and just a few months ago I built my own pc. You have to spend $1000 dollars to REALLY see the difference between PC and console and I think that some people don't see that as a "fun" gaming experience.
I adore my PC and I will never go back to console because that is what suits me. I'm sure there are plenty of people who find that consoles suit their gaming needs better than a PC.
>>692622762 >A level playing field for online multiplayer suits me like there aren't hackers on consoles >a reasonable cost suits me consoles are unreasonably priced for the hardware you're getting >the ability to buy second hand for like 90% of the original price, whoopee >The simplicity of coming home, pressing a single button and jumping into a game straight away suits me this is literally nothing. I turn my computer on with one button as well
>>692622620 I previously had 980 sli for 4k but the 4gb vram held me back. Once you turn off post processing and all the ambient bullshit 4k is easy. My current 1080 will run gta 5 at 4k maxed excluding AA at 4x rather than 8x. 1080 sli will destroy 4k gaming.
>>692622761 I think it's more a collection thing than just the easiest way to play the most games. I just enjoy having lots of different consoles and physical games, as do most of the console gamers I know. I want to try pc gaming it just seems super hard to get into if you haven't grown up with it.
>>692623214 >A level playing field for online multiplayer suits me Same on PC
>A reasonable cost suits me PC is cheaper if you buy more than a few games
>The ability to buy second hand consoles/games that aren't 10 years outdated suits me Don't buy DRM ridden shit. I don't know how it is where you live, but in Germany you can go to the store and buy a physical copy.
>The simplicity of coming home, pressing a single button and jumping into a game straight away suits me Same on PC
plus, then you have to pay a subscription fee every month on top of what you paid for the console if you want to play games online funny how nobody's nickel-and-diming me every month for playing my PC games online
>>692623492 this argument isnt console exclusive, other than you being peer pressured into buying something suboptimal, why were you such a cuck and let them convince you rather than you showing them that its better to spend money on a pc? right i know why, because you and your friends both are too retarded to use common logic
>>692623230 Level playing field in terms of performance you cocksucker, online pc gaming at its heart is pay to win, what chance dies the entry level guy playing at 900p 60fps have against the richfag playing at UHD 144fps?
Pc people keep saying this but every time they post an example of a 'console killer' it ends up costing at least 200-300 more than a console where I live
>90% of original price This isn't even an argument, anyone with a brain wouldn't buy a second hand anything at 90% of original price, fuck off
I'll consede the last point because technically you're right, even though consoles ARE more straightforward
>purchase a console which is affordable with my own money which I work for >still have fun with it because it works the way I want it to and don't have to purchase and install new hardware every couple of years >get called a poorfag sheep
>purchase PC for $300 >purchase game for $50 >realize PC hardware isn't enough to run game I bought >purchase new graphics card for $600 >realize graphics card isn't compatible with current motherboard >purchase new motherboard for $400 >spend hours installing hardware >play game for 15 minutes, complain that it wasn't made 100% for you >get on 4chan to call other people sheep >call consolefags poor because they decided not to waste $1300 on a machine that will be outdated in a week >fap to pictures of self >master race
>>692623761 Well that's a misconception. Better resolutions and higher frame rates don't give you any real advantage. That's gonna come from your internet connection speed. And even that's gonna be limited by server tick.
And when it comes to used game prices, don;t even pretend they're fair. You save like 5 to 10 bucks on a 60 dollar game. For a game that some 12 year old probably rubbed on his wiener and then sold back without the case or manual.
>>692623665 Really because you can't play with a modded console, or controller? Not to mention those weird analogue stick extenders that make them an inch longer. Plus televisions have a different latency, and refresh rate.
It's okay if you don't care if it's a console or PC and you just want to play games. No one cares. The problem comes when you join a discussion about games, and you try to talk about games online. You're not a Tumblr feminist. This isn't a safe space. If you say something technically incorrect you're going to hear about it.
TL;DR: If you don't care about gaming, then stop talking to people who do.
>>692623627 I love how people like you will bash anyone who buys a console and shout >but muh PC is better And then bash those sane people for buying a prebuilt THAT'S WHAT THEY WERE LOOKING FOR YOU FUCKING RETARDS These people do not WANT to go through the hassle of building their own pc, they're big and complicated and expensive if you fuck up, so shut the fuck up and let people buy what they want to buy
>>692618267 I care because you can't get ksp and dayz on consoles. Sure I play other games like bf4 and Gta online but at the moment it's ksp when there's not much else happening and dayz when a group of us are on.
Name me a single thing that the console is better at.
Considering the fact that you can pirate games, the argument of a console being cheaper doesn't really apply, since new games are insanely expensive, and buying a couple will negate any money you think you saved.
>>692624316 Yeah? And what about installing an OS, flashing the BIOS, getting the fucking thing to boot in the first place? Installing drivers, getting all the hardware to communicate properly? Is all that doable by your average fucknuckle that didn't already know that pc was better until you had to come and tell him? I highly fucking doubt it
>>692624332 I called you a poorfag because you clearly don't know what you're talking about. I've yet to see a gpu incompatible with a mobo or a $400 entry level mobo. You can buy a $80 mobo and $200 fx 480 right now and max out any game at 1080p.
>6 months later, new game I want comes out >gotta upgrade muh gpu, spend $500 >realize monitor is shit, spend $400 >3 more hours installing new hardware >install game >leggy as fuck >gotta spend another $150 upgrading ram >mom won't let me use her credit card anymore >cry >call consolefags poor >get on 9gag and browse memes to make myself feel better >play laggy game for 6 months while I wait for mom to buy me new ram for Christmas >look out my window into neighbors house >see faggit neighbor playing same game on console with no lag >REEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE
The funniest part is these console fags play mostly shooters and the FPS experience is infinitely better with mouse and keyboard than it is with control sticks. Not to mention that the modern FPS as we know it was born on PC and perfected on PC.
>>692624926 A $600 video card will last you more than six months. I got a GTX980 Ti for that recently, and I could upgrade to a GTX1080 if I wanted. People who regularly do this will sell their old hardware, since you could easily get $400-$500 back selling a GTX980 Ti along with its original packaging.
>>692625413 I got paid for work I did on a private server in the form of a core i7, I sold that mother fucker because it was worth damn near 3k. Anybody that pays that much for a PC is a hipster fag that knows nothing of computing. Thank god for hipsters, they pay me a lot of money to set up their gay gaming websites and TS servers.,
>>692625117 The couple that stay across from me are both sound and she's very fuckable. She's not a lol bitch either, she plays dayz and bf4 a lot with us. He's quite a lucky guy tbh as she is nice plus games which means he doesn't have a woman moaning about how much time he spends on his pc, whereas my wife, even though I consider her quite hot, she's not a gamer in the slightest and I have to spend some time with her watching shitty shows so we have together time instead of my friend's together time on the pc
>>692625949 I know you had no possible way of cleverly retorting that as seen from your previous posts so you refer to the biggest loser cliche post of them all to cover yourself but it blatantly didn't work.
You can kill yourself or you can go play your stupid fucking sports games. You choose.
>>692625978 >hipster a person who follows the latest trends and fashions, especially those regarded as being outside the cultural mainstream. Geek culture,.ie large gaming communities that think alien ware is the shit.
>>692625907 yeah but it doesn't mean dick because everyone in the room was playing with their thumbs that's like being proud that you won a game of basketball where everyone's hands were tied behind their backs
>>692618267 as a pc gamer for over 6 years and a new player to playstation 4 it's just something you guys obviously don't understand
of course, pc is better, better graphics, better range of games and shit but, consoles are a pretty level playing field, everyone is running the same fps and same controllers, no bullshit 144hz setups and shit like that, for a casual gamer its literally perfect and it blows my mind how you guys cant pick up that and continually circle jerk each other. ill play ps4 with my friends if i want to, ill play pc with my other friends if i want to just fuck off with all this propaganda bullshit
>>692625941 You don't have to buy a $600 video card. I bought one because I'm single, have a job, and don't have a crippling drug addiction. Some people choose to spend $600 on iPhones or shoes instead.
The Potato Masher build uses a GTX 760 which is probably fine for casuals. Newegg has it for $125 on sale right now.
>>692625941 This is the only thing that pisses me off about building new pc. You can get an xbox here for £250 and a ps4 for £280 but my Msi 980 gaming 4G cost £350 and it wasn't even the best card out at the time.
>>692626853 >consoles are a pretty level playing field Most games have at least not completely broken matchmaking. You should look up low MMR videos for CSGO (Silver 1 matches) or Overwatch (Skill Rank ~30). It's adorable. It looks like they're console players.
>>692626944 >poorly analyzes my post and comes up with cliche conclusions that fit nearly every situation >talks about not caring but still replies >continues to utter the epitome of platitudes Yeah yeah, textbook, unsurprising. What's next? Are you going to do what I said and go play your stupid fucking retarded ass sports games? Something tells me you aren't even self-aware.
>>692626490 Games wont run as good as they do on console if you have a shitty pc Because they don't give a shit about optimizing the games on pc. Look at the games on 360 right before the one came out. Try run those games on a pc with the same specs as the 360
>>692622585 This, I got my ps4 second hand for 220 euro, does everything I want and it was cheap as fuck As for games I got bf4 for a fiver (holy shit, steam isn't the only online marketplace with sales?!?!) And a few more off my mate who also has a ps4 for free cause he was done with them Premium gaming experience for 225 euro, don't mind paying for online after that tbh...
>PCfag cheaps out and buys a £350 machine because it "does the job just fine" >other PCfags are running rigs 3 and 4 times more than that with 3 and 4 times the performance >gets called a noob and a shill by his own people
>>692627695 Dude, most of the people in here are hipsters that want to feel superior, I own a PC and a console system because there's some games that are more fun on PC, and others that are more fun on console. Not even talking about PC and console exclusives
>>692627514 Do you honestly believe that because you play shooting games you are more intelligent than someone who plays sports games, so much so that you will become enraged at anyone who doesn't also play shooters?
>>692622724 I'm very happy with my selection of games on pc. It's not that I'm an elitist, it's that I just know what I have is better hands down and I am not worried about what could be on consoles. I have emulators, the ability to torrent, steam, g2a and plenty of storage space for what I want to play
Get your smug reaction pic outta here, son. I ain't here for labels nor do I care about bloodboner
>>692628503 >>692628331 I'm a PCfag and I would like more games to support split-screen (or hotseat coop in general). The assholes in charge of things are only getting rid of it because they want to force you to buy multiple copies of the game.
So I read more of the replies on this thread and holy shit. Why can't anyone on /b/ have a real discussion before acting like an irate retard?
Look you can have your consoles, I get why you have them and why you think they could potentially be better (even though they aren't).
I will confidently tell anyone I know PC is better but if you want to play your ps4 then by all means go for it. I still get interested when they come out with new shit hardware-wise for consoles and the competition is great for everyone. Except the overpricing
Pc confetti race is just people who dosen't want to lose their virginity, and dosen't like playing games. They like to tale screenshots of games and saying "oh look, i took a screenshot of Skyrim with a mod on, like everyone else have done the last 5 years"
Then there's the console players who likes to play games and also can get a girlfriend. If you have a console you'd also be able to play with said girlfriend co-op.
Might look better on the pc, but the console is for gaming.
>>692628204 See this. This shit right here is why the pc gaming community is fucking cancer, arrogant little fuckwits like you putting people down for trying to enjoy the same hobby as you I swear, if you don't have the latest processor, graphics card and motherboard at least 70% of these elitist autists won't even look at you, never mind share in your enjoyment of games or help you with a problem It's shit like this that's actually turned me away from pc gaming, the constant bickering, arguing and complaining, combined with the constant one upmanship and 'holier than thou' attitude held by at least half, if not more, of the pc gaming community. This is not an assumption, this is what I've experienced during my time interacting with this community for the last two to three years, and it's prevalent no matter what website you go to
>>692628765 >when I visit my friends we don't play video games That sound more like a pathetic lie,faggot After a long day of work, all we really want to do is relax drink a few beers and play a few video games while we visit.
>>692628806 You think you want that but that's because you haven't tried to play split screen since you were a kid and you didn't realize it was horrible and awkward because you didn't know any better. Try to play split screen now. You'll hate it. It's hard to see with the ridiculous FOV provided by half the screen
>>692629073 Ain't bait, i have never known a pc master race person who have lost their virginity before they where in their 20s But the good thing is that i'm beginning to hear alot of Pc players wanting to buy a ps4. I'm happy for them and glad that they finally decided to become real gamers
>>692629319 Honestly, I don't like most PC mmo's because the cheating is way to easy and widespread. People buy programs like Aimbot. Sure people cheat on consoles also, but that's harder to do and easier to get caught then on the PC
I'm just looking forward to when pc gamers are finally playing along side xbox one gamers. It's a shame that sony aren't as willing to join the cross platform community and I see it's where the future lies. With valve releasing their steam machine, basically a console that can play pc games, Microsoft are obviously seeing that as their next move too. I know games like star citizen will probably never run on a console, current gen anyway but that's where we'd still get exclusives. It just seems to me that if this was the case then xbox would have no exclusives since the games should all run on pc too.
Anyone thinking I'm speaking shit then you can already see with the ps4.5 and xbox Scorpio that the days of consoles lasting 8 years are most definitely behind us.
