I'm no PC guy, but...

I'm gaining newfound appreciation for the stuff you can do on PC but not on console. Stuff like skipping the neverending startup screen for Arkham Origins. In case you don't know how bad it is, you reach the title screen 40 seconds after launching the game. FORTY SECONDS! This is just maddening, I just want to play the game, not see who made it over and over! I could understand if they forced you through it the first time you started the game, but every single time? Fuck that, there's a way to bypass this crap... but only on PC. PS3 and 360 players are shit out of luck.

Now don't get me wrong, I have the same vitriol towards the "master race" as I do towards console fanboys, but when it comes to stuff like that they kinda have a point.

  1. I do praise what a PC can do well in comparison to consoles, but elitism unfortunately hasn't been screened out of the gene pool just yet. It still completely baffles me how fanboys and supremacist thought in general still manages to exist after millions of years of evolution.

    1. Because they cannot suppress the urge to think they're the best...

  2. I guarantee you like 99% of these master race fanboys are LoL or Dota players and thats it, using some expensive rig for just that, not even knowing any full potential of both sides

  3. Don't forget about better graphics.

    1. I can, and I will. Graphics mean shit all to me.

    2. As the main man said, the game can be the most beautiful game in the world graphically. If it's not much of a game, or if the game sucks, then graphics won't fix that. Then again, people think Xenoblade looks ugly...

    3. It's not just that, I literally cannot see the difference between 720p at 30 FPS and 1080p at 60 FPS. Maybe it's because I don't care one bit, but still. Mario 64 and FF7 are really fine games even to this day, if the graphics would make your average modern gamer's eyes bleed it's their own problem.

    4. Oh, I have a similar situation. As long as the game's fun, it shouldn't matter. That and my eyes pretty much are that bad. So what if the game doesn't look realistic? Maybe I don't want a strictly realistic look to my games. That and that style ages worse than, say, a cartoony style...

    5. As realistic as a sepia color scheme can get, of course...

    6. There IS a reason why people say the original release of Wind Waker is more pleasing to the eye than Twilight Princess. Still, guess which out of the two is my favorite...

    7. I gotta admit, I can't tell the difference between 720p and 4k gaming. I'm just pointing out PCs have the power to go higher. If graphics aren't your care point, then surely you'll enjoy a good game of Minecraft?

    8. He doesn't seem like a Minecraft guy. Personally, I'm always game for a few rounds of Touhou...
