I can already feel the hate directed at me through some of your computer screens, but nevertheless I am standing strong with my points. I believe… no screw that. I know that PC’s are the ultimate gaming machines which offer the ultimate gaming experience. Here’s why:
Don’t look at me like that, you all knew this point was coming. Because it’s true, it’s a fact. PC’s have the best graphics and there’s no doubt about it. It’s science… sorta. But seriously, i’m actually confused as to why people still own consoles nowadays, or potato-face renderers as I call them. Why pay so much money for a machine that makes your games look crappy? The reason for console popularity is probably just down to 12 year olds who buy two games a year – Call of Duty and Fifa. “But the prices for PC’s are massive!” I hear people say, well this brings me to my next point.
When prices are discussed within PC gaming, everyone seems to flip their shit and declare how pricey PC’s are. This is actually as true as you want it to be. People overlook that you can get great gaming PC’s for the same price as the next-gen consoles. So my question to you, the hardcore gamer who owns a console, is – why pay the same amount of moolah for a far inferior machine when you can get a PC which has everything enhanced and upgraded?! Seriously PC’s are years ahead with the likes of Steam and other sites, there shouldn’t even be any competition.
3) Customization & Mods
There’s so much customization on PC. Tons. Almost every game comes with additional settings to fit your playstyle that you wouldn’t find on a console. You can even get an xbox controller if you’re not the mouse using type. But then again using the mouse offers more precision and accuracy if you’re playing shooters than the controllers and their “wiggle sticks” do.
But onto PC mods now. They’re probably one of the highest selling points for PC’s, they appeal to everyone and they’re as fun as hell. Wanna play as Spider-man in Just Cause 2? (pictured above) Done. Wanna use lightsabers in Skyrim? Why not. They’re all free, and the Steam community always want to share. God bless them and their work.
4) No Worrying About Change
Simply put, there’s no squabble with dicks like Don Mattrick trying to get you to buy their latest money-maker. Years pass by and you still don’t have to change a thing about how you play your games. Console gamers will be in an indecisive mess over the next couple of months thinking about which console suits them better and which is cheaper. Whilst PC gamers don’t have to care, they can just sit back and laugh (with popcorn too).
It’s no secret that PC gamers are treated to the best exclusives out there. Titles like Arma 2 and Natural Selection 2 are some of the best PC exclusives, not to mention that there’s loads of great indie’s that start out on PC like Thomas Was Alone and gradually expand to the wider market of consoles. Besides getting the best exclusives, sometimes us PC gamers don’t have to worry about which console will have better exclusives because they will go to one console and PC anyway.
My favourite example of this is EA’s upcoming game Titanfall. It’s gonna be a great game and it won a hell of a lot of awards at E3, but it’s treated as an “Xbox exclusive”, seriously if you want this game and don’t want a crappy Xbox, get a PC. Here’s a link to my PC, it’s the same price as the next-gen consoles and it works great.
