WHAT THE FUCK, IS UP WITH PC GAMING.
I just fucking upgraded a few months back and what have I had to show for my 1.2k rig?
>consolized ports optimized like fucking ass
>delayed ports (THE FUCK IS GTA V AND DO5?!)
>dead as FUCK online for any game that isn't a free2play prehistoric FPS or fucking MMO/MOBA cancer
>fucking indie shovelware UP THE FUCKING ASS
The fuck are all these AAA god tier PC exclusives we used to get in the good old days?
>Half Life 2
And then people have the nerve to call this the 'golden age' of PC gaming? What the FUCK?
What have I got to show for this year? City mother fucking Skylines? Meanwhile Sonyggers get Yakuza 0/Dragon Quest/FFXV demo/Bloodborne ALL IN ONE FUCKING MONTH.
Now MGSV is fucking delayed? FFXV isn't coming? SILENT HILLS ISN'T COMING?! NEPTUNIA/FAIRY FENCER/BLOODBORNE/KINGDOM HEARTS 3/YAKUZA 0 AREN'T COMING?!?
Mother FUCK this.
This is my last bullshit PC upgrade. Fuck it, getting a Sony console for Sony/PS4/Console exclusives and multiplats and using the money saved for a Nintendo console or handheld.
Fuck this bullshit, if I wanted indie shovelware up the ass I would use my grannies shitty laptop.
And what THE FUCK is up with all these DEAD ASS ONLINE COMMUNITIES?! Why the fuck do PC gamers spend more time circle jerking over console exclusives and their gaming rigs on /v/ and /r/masterrace than actually PLAYING SOME FUCKING GAMES?!
>all multiplats and toaster tier flash games
Holy fuck, it's actually true
Whether OPs post is bait or not, I bought a PS4 for college and I don't really miss PC gaming too much.
For a while I absolutely refused to buy multiplats so I could binge on vidya when I get home in the summer but recently I bought both GTAV and Bloodborne and I've been having fun.
Coming off PC gaming the only way I can accurately describe playing on a console is like going from console gaming to handheld gaming.
It doesn't have all the bells and whistles but the funs there.
No one forced you to pursue PC gaming. I'm pretty sure everyone in the PC masterrace here invested in PC gaming for their own reasons. You probably invested in PC gaming because /v/ talks about it all the time, in which case you got exactly what you deserved for being a little beta bitch and being a follower rather than a man that thinks for himself.
I like seeing mustards suffer.
>All those fedoracore games and Multiplat toaster trash
No wonder PC gaming is dying out
>Consolefag shows of his library
>only has 1 game in the console
As much of a falseflag / bait copy pasta this is.
It's fucking spot on.
So, I recently booted up my old PS2 and realized that the PS2s era was god tier. Yea, most people agree but damn was it good.
Looking to the future do people agree that it at least looks promising?
>Ratchet and Clank
>Crack Down 3
>Kingdom Hearts 3
>Mobile Suit Gundam
The list goes on, all consoles are looking to have a promising as fuck future (some more than others) but overall. It looks roughly in the same vain as the PS2 era, with Nintendo getting it's basic and expected games. Microsoft getting it's basic games and more fun action orientated shooters. Sony with it's weeb games and first party titles / new IPs. It all looks damn good.
But PC seems to have dropped off (idort btw).
Back in the olden days we had everything from Starcraft, WoW, Warcraft, Command and Conquer, Sims, F.E.A.R, Half Life, Fallout, Planetscape, Deus Ex, Doom, Unreal Tournament. Fuck, PC was definitely a viable alternative to consoles but now, I hear all this talk about 'golden era' and I just don't see it.
Whenever I ask a PC gamer what they look forward to they either pick:
>Star Citizen (a kikestarter game with a literal $15,000 in game transaction in it)
>A pale imitation of one of the older classics listed above with 'better visuals'
>Multiplat (thats ironically delayed or even not confirmed).
Why has PC gaming fallen victim to toaster tier shovelware playable on luncboxes? What happened to the god tier AAA games we had? Why are the assfaggots community who play their MOBAs and MMOs on their toasters dictating and influencing todays developers in the fact that every major upcoming PC game is toaster friendly aimed at that exact crowd.
What is this golden age?
Wasteland 2, Divinity Original Sing
Dead game, and not even and PC exclusive
>Half Life 2
Alien: Isolation, Far Cry 4, and other FPS story games
MMOs are a dead genre, at least in Ameican. But if you really want to play some good ones you're gonna have to use a VPN to play some Korean MMOs and Phantasy Star Online 2. Otherwise you got me there.
You can still play it buddy, try EYE: Cybermancy if you want some RPG FPS
Diablo 3 is a good game now after all the patches, Torchlight 2 is an alright alternative
Alien: ayy lmao
This indie garbage is the equivalent of the small publishers of the early 3D PC gaming. Sure there is a lot of pandering shit, but you still find good games that are exclusive to PC.
With PC gaming you get the benefit of playing the definitive versions of most AAA games, which is a benefit not the sole reason to get a PC.
I mod several group chats (>for
hats) and you're spot on
I think it's because consoles cost way more in their countries, and also they're on the favorable side of exchange rates when it comes to hats. This is why every spic/filippino you meet on steam has an obnoxious amount of hats and badges.
>What is this golden age?
Nothing but a wave of "ideas" that die as soon as they hype goes away, while Consoles keep making games just like they used to be, the old traditional but professional way theres no massive kickstarter scams, greenlight half assed products and F2P games are not as pouplar as the main selling console tittles.
PC has changed, and not exactly for good.
>The fuck are all these AAA god tier PC exclusives we used to get in the good old days?
What exclusives, OP? More than half are on consoles as well.
Minecraft kinda ruined gaming if you think about it.
>makes a fun game that isn't graphics intensive or anything, completely indie
>does Fuck all to improve the game AT ALL
>just bought a 70m mansion
Fuck you Notch.
Either way I'll probably buy bloodbourne used in a few months. Right now I'm playing mmdoc, age of wonders, darkest dungeon and dark souls. And I'm enjoying them :^)
I genuinely can't find games I'd enjoy for ps3/4 and 3DS right now. All I have is smash.
>Completely moddable game
>one of the largest and most diverse comunities
>no bullshit DLC
>lets you pick whatever version you wanna play
If anything Minecraft was the last example of how PC gaming was supposed to be done.
Until PC gets a definitive build and SKU this statement will never hold true.
Especially when just about every Steam Survey shows most PCucks as owning inferior rigs to even the XBone.
It has the potential, nothing more
>doesn't even *recognize* Yakuza
This is who you post with on /v/ now. Literal teenagers who grew up on steam, maybe with a side of xbox (which explains why they continue shilling for the controller with the worst d-pad of all time)
>hes not a blind fanboy that lacks ability to do criticism therefore he must be from the "rival" team
Fuck off with your autism, if had PS4 and was doing baddly i would be doing the same.
Only "current gen" console i own is a 3DS, so far i can´t complain about, its has a decent library of well made, traditional games.
My problem is that I have too many games to play. Anyway the games themselves were never the draw of PC gaming for me. Sans UT and pretty much every RTS game. It was always more about the freedom, control schemes and modding which I do more than anything else. I would much rather spend the weekend working on a shader and adapting and configuring it to inject it on a game than play bloodborne at 30fps.
pft who cares about the d-pad bro you only touch it like once every 10 minutes in all the games i play anyway :^)
There is something wrong with PC GAMING. Some years ago when if someone would say PC gaming was only indie shit they would bash you into Oblivion. Now they are like
"WHATEVER,I LIKE MY INDIE GAMES"
"INDIE GAMES ROCKS DUDE"
Something is wrong dude.
>Wasteland 2, Divinity Original Sing
Pale imitation that doesn't even come close to the original (as OP said)
>Alien: Isolation, Far Cry 4, and other FPS story games
Multiplats not even CLOSE to the level of Half Life 2
>MMOs are a dead genre
MMOs/MOBA are the only thing keeping PC gaming relevant.
They released in similar time frames, there are no recent PC equivalents which is exactly OPS point.
>Diablo 3 is a good game now after all the patches, Torchlight 2 is an alright alternative
Not even close.
>Alien: ayy lmao
Multiplat and not even close.
So you have nothing?
OP was right, PC gaming is dying and being flooded with indie shovelware cancer meanwhile Consoles are still killing it.
Pretty much any recent online game
>GTA V Online
>XrD is suprisingly good
>Tekken Tag Tournament 2 on PS3 is still strong
>DO5 is strong
>Evolve is strong
>Hardline is strong
>BF4 is strong
All of the top of my head m8.
Here's a good comparison
Hardline, a one PC franchise (Battlefield) shows PS4 and Xbone (each) as having 3-5x more player count than PC.
The two top most played games on PC is Counter Strike and assfaggots. Two toaster tier prehistoric MOBA/FPS.
Just as OP said.
any fightan (especially compared to PC where every single fighter is dead except SF4 which is already LITERALLY 1/5 the size it was when Ultra came out last year)
any fps besides csgo
pretty much any multiplat with online basically
warhawk on ps3 to this day has an amazing community but obviously quite small at this point
steam is chock-full of third worlders/bronies/furries and people who don't even play their games. there are like 11 group chats in all of steam that are actually decently active and half of them are weeb shit with extreme overlap in users.
Any incentive to optimize your PC with the latest fx card died with the first crysis. Developers are no longer pushing the limits of hardware, it takes too much investment with too little reward. You get way more money making 10 copies of call of FIFA every 2 years.
I have a laptop that can handle any modern ports and it works fine for me.
Going to get a ps4 after a few more games drop, I have a Wii u to tide me over until then.
My little brother has a school netbook he downloaded steam and unturned on. He's not a PC gamer. But still shows up in these biased polls that count facebook machines. Fuck off.
Hilariously enough, online communities are dead because there are actually so many damn games that people are scattered across so many, rather than the fewer that we used to have. There are too many games across the span of large, medium and small sized development companies.
Oh and Steam is a big factor, not only do they flood the market with shit, their Nazi anti-cheating measures has made playerbases smaller. Tons of people back in the day played games online with pirated copies. When we had cheaters, we left the server for another one and there were so many servers (peer to peer and hosted) that you'd quickly find one with mods online who'd ban the fucker from their server.
Gaming needs to shrink the fuck back down on all fronts.
Wow, how autistic do you even have to be to do that
What is it with thread starters being 99% absolute cancer compared to posters overall? It seems like only people with the egos to create threads are just autist cunts
>Missing the whole RTS community there.
all dead besides sc2 which is dying
>And Sim games.
all dead besides arma which is meh
i mean congrats for naming two genres that PC does in fact do better but they're still pretty niche and past their prime
Stop deluding yourself. Every adult I know with a PC has hardware on par or better than the ps4. Inflated polls like those are bs, just like those that count women playing Farmville the same as actual games.
Kill yourself >>288364546
I don't understand the vitriol, honestly.
People download steam to play PC games. Meaning they're PC gamers. You can't just count the ones that take it seriously enough for your liking, it's classic No True Scotsman.
Can't complain about lack of gaems. Admittedly, many of them are humble bundle shit I'll never play.
You're retarded. There's heaps of amazing PC games, Steam is slowly becoming the major gaming platform and the "ports" are being stuck in their rightful place with the (usually) superior PC versions. 2015 has been a great year for PC and its only looking up.
SOE got sold off and the laid off all the devs. PS2 is currently coasting along with no fuel, sooner or later its gonna plunge.
>there are people right now who don't realize that this board is being invaded
Its funny, this was the same shit /pol/ was going through almost 2 years ago now. Adding the board IDs really cleaned the place up. I can't wait till they do the same to /v/ and by then you'll realize over 50% of the content of these threads are the OP.
Most of /v/ never believed Steam was good, the unique poster count quickly quietened the shills because they couldn't samefag any more
I love that fucking counter so much, it's killed so many of the whiny shill fanbases, Earthbound, SMT, Persona, Steamfags
>Admittedly, many of them are humble bundle shit I'll never play.
I will never understand this
Why would anyone buy a game without really wanting it, and then shitpost consoles for having to pay for a better, more secure online experience.
I blame digital. It makes the games look like they're worth less or just a program
I don't know. I don't follow hyped games. I let them come out for a year, then buy them for great discounts. The fact that you focus on the metacritic score so much is disconcerting. Also, you never the the discounts. Last time I bought a physical game I felt ripped off. For the same $60 I can get between 6-10 high quality games.
>Pc master cuck on the verge of a psychotic breakdown due to his lack of games and dead online community
Probably because steam legitimately wasn't good until like 2011.
This board was almost entirely console players up until then. The sinking realization that most of today's /v/ started posting after that era makes me feel really old and out of place.
PC scores are usually higher because XBAWKZ/PS reviews are literally either 10/10 paid shills or 0/10 counterbalance to the paid shills.
Metacritic is a joke; Obsidian was dumb to let Todd fuck them over using metacritic score as a metric, considering the publishers like Bethesda are the ones who control the final meta"critic" scores. "Oh, they need an 85 to get their bonus? Then lets just have the cronies award them an 84 instead :^)8"
Kind of weird, but i just reinstalled Deus Ex last night. I was willing to look past the visuals.... During the training i decided to throw my gun down range. Neither door would open till exersize was done, couldn;t do exersize without gun i tossed. So i skipped training. Then my first encounter. Tense. I grabbed a wooden box from that starting area and used it as cover to get past the first guards. They didn't think anything was suspicious about a box slowly moving past them. Mustard race.
I just thinking of those skills that used the cursor as the destination, like teleport or barb charge. Sometimes you want a short movement, sometimes long. No idea how they could do that quickly.

Daily reminder that it's perfectly ok to shitpost and bash on the PC platform, but don't you DARE say anything bad about consoles.
Hilariously underrated post, this should be reminded more often.
There's a reason why there are no more games such as Diablo 2, StarCraft, Counter-Strike, Quake 3 Arena, Enemy Territory, Halo 2/3, and ultimately World of Warcraft which made online gaming so popular the market exploded. And the most popular ones are now all shit, like LoL and CoD.
The worst part in all this is seeing how many online games died from a death they'll never recover and can never be played again.
MGSV's online is my last hope for that.
>Steam wasn't good until 2011
Nice goalpost moving, that isn't what you fuckers used to say
>the board was almost entirely console players
AHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA THIS FUCKING FANBOY DELUSION
A bundle has 1 game I really want, but it also comes with 4 other shitty titles. So I register all of them on my account because why the fuck not, at the very least they'll count towards the game collector badge.
>I can't wait till they do the same to /v/ and by then you'll realize over 50% of the content of these threads are the OP.
I've found these people tend to reset IPs all the time anyway, which if anything makes it even more autistic
It's completely true. /v/ was primarily about PS2/DS/a bit of 360 until around 2008, then 360/PS3, then switched to PC when steam sales started and the consoles started peddling wagglan shit.
PC was a tiny community here mostly limited to TF2.
I don't even know why I'm responding to you since you've already made it clear you're either trolling or legitimately weren't here for any of that.
This would be why:
Prepare to witness true autism.
Thxs 4 luvin my post bb
But why do you think MGSV's online will be any different? There are so many games coming out all the time that people will be distracted with new single and multiplayer games. I hardly buy any multiplayer games any more because if I didn't get a chance to play in the first month it's a deadzone and I just wasted my money. It's a sad state of affairs but there you go.
I sort of agree with OP and posts like >>288362139, but I am sort of torn with the fact that all consoles will be charging for Internet play by next gen (even nintendo is hopping on that wagon) and I just don't want to drop the sheckles for it.
>inb4 just don't and play offline
Well I'll want to play some things online, like most FPSs these days are focused on online gameplay even more than the offline modes.
>MGSV's online is my last hope for that.
Is this a bad time to mention the community will be largest and longest-lasting on PS4?
PC players outside /v/ and reddit (which, like it or not, is really only a few thousand people within the millions who will be buying MGSV) don't give a fuck about MGS.
I dunno OP multiplats are always better on PC plus you can still play older games like fallout 1/2 if you want. Personally I haven't seen even half of Skyrim yet because I spend most of my time trying out mods. But if PC is not for you then it's not.
You're fucking wrong. PC games have always been extremely popular, with the TF2 community being obnoxiously large (hence the Steam shilling). Console wars just generate the most shitposting from whence tears can be harvested, so you'd remember more of those. There have always been a huge PC base on /v/ (that didn't use Steam), cry more Steam shill
sold my graphics card last week and i thank god that i did. that junk was useless
PC has the potential, nothing more.
Kek, literally every PCuck I know owns a shit tier toaster that exclusively runs LoL and Counter Strike,
Stop bullshitting you cuck
Theres nothing wrong with pc, i got many games to play and currently enjoying the shit out of Cities Skylines and looking forward to pillars of eternity, whoever made this thread sounds like a console kiddie trying storm pc vs ps4 discussions.
The truth is, all consoles are shit,
>yearly credcard info leaks
>no retro compatibility (except for a few paid "HD" versions with slightly highier resolution and crappier framerate)
>library consists mostly in sucky AAA releases, if you happy to not like one of them you get to stay without new games for 2 to 3 months.
>few indie games (the cool ones stays on pc)
>dx9 dx11 for 6years while pc is using dx12
Console gamers are also stupid as fuck, even shit games like titanfall and evolve are a commercial success on consoles thanks to people who don't have a better choice for multiplayer.
Halo is cod in space, all other xbone exclusive are shit.
Bloodborn is dark souls 2 modded
Smash bross is cool, but not a reason to buy a wii-u
If you are poor and plays on console you are basically burning money
If you are rich and not play on pc you are not enjoying the best.
Theres no argument that the pc is better, all these sonyggers shitposting can go suck a fuck, after i built my pc i will never go back to consoles ever.
When did you grow out of consoles /v/ ?
>spending 1.2k on a gaming rig
>not spending 1.2k on a Dwarf Fortress rig that can also play normal games
this is where you fucked up OP
try F3 and F:NV with mods you nukka
You know about Planetside 2, right? It's legit
shit. try a real MMO
again, shit. Try Doom 1 or 2. Modding community's still alive
See above, though DeusEx:HR was alright (broken easy mechanics though)
fuck D3 in the ass. D2 with mods and 3 mates on /addplayers8 hardcore is where it's at. Also check out a game called Path of Exile
never heard of it.
The irony is you accusing me of a biased memory when it's certainly moreso the case for you. Have you really forgotten that this was mainly a place to shoot the shit about Pokemon and Disgaea up until like 2009 because most people were still on PS2?
PC gaming especially before steam was extremely western-focused and people were going elsewhere to discuss it. There were more people on fucking GameFAQs talking about that shit than here until recently.
It's fucking last-decade 4chan, dude. How are you gonna sit there and try to tell me PC games were popular here. This was a place to get away from that shit.
I didn't, because sadly all the games I want to play are on consoles. The Japanese need to get into PC gaming already. If stuff like EDF, Dragon's Dogma got onto PC I'd never play consoles again
>Major gaming platform
EA Q3 FY15:
Console: 742 (65.9%)
PC/Bowser: 218 (19.4%)
Mobile: 122 (10.8%)

Konami Q1-Q3 2015:

Even in Activision (which includes Blizzard & World of Warcraft) consoles are in a league of their own profit wise.
Outside of your MMO/MOBA scene, PC gaming is deader than dead. It's only sperg containment boards like /v/ and /r/masterrace where they think otherwise.
Want some more solid numbers?
>Sold most on consoles
>Battlefield Hardline (former PC franchise)
>Has a player count 4 times higher on PS4 and Xbone (each)
Get me one Fiscal report of a multiplat developer that profits more on PC.
JUST FUCKING ONE.
The only thing keeping you cucks relevant is MMO/MOBA due to the literal niggers playing on their netbooks.
Well precisely because >>288366267
>Is this a bad time to mention the community will be largest and longest-lasting on PS4?
MGSV is without a doubt going to be a great game, and a hugely popular one, and for several weeks, countless gamers around the world will play the same game at the same time. Judging by snippets of info leaked by Kojima, it seems MGSV itself will have an incredible depth, and I guess we can expect the same from MGO3, so obviously it'll the kind of game people will play for a very long time.
And I'd tend to think it's going to last. MGO & MGO2's communities were incredibly strong and lasting on PS2 and PS3 despite the servers closing, and now that people managed to host their own servers, it's still going strong. It's certainly going to last on PS4, and considering the many people getting the PC release, I think it'll last on PC too. Now we can only hope the online will be cross platform and it'd be even better.
This seems to me to be the next and perhaps the last "big and good game everyone will play".
Welcome to how I felt when I got back into vidya after a decade in 2010.
Sold my PC last year. Just gonna stick with PS4/Wii U.
I don't know about you but I use my PC for more than just gaming so in reality I just put an extra $200-$300 into my rig to make it gaming-worthy.
If you're one of those people who absolutely has to play all the newest AAA games and has to see 100k+ players online in a game to feel satisfied then PC gaming probably isn't for you.
tbh i only use my gaming pc for garrys mod and gta san andreas online
There is no excuse to pay for online
3 years ago the idea of being ok with paying for online would have been unthinkable.
It's depressing and incredibly telling of a fanbase when paid online is suddenly ok now that sony does it, it's baffling how suddenly nobody complains about it anymore
IDs change on each thread. You aren't identified permanently by an ID, you get a different ID on each thread you post in.
Why would you want people not to know you are the same guy who said something before? Have you seen the fucking state of the board?
PC gaming is shit. Everyone is playing fucking DOTA 2 instead of populating online games with actual decent gameplay. F2P, microtransactions, DLC, Early-Access, Kickstarter cancer fucking everywhere. If a game isn't a console port, it's most definitely either of those earlier mentioned. There are no AAA PC exclusives anymore. There are barely any AA even. It's all console ports or indie shit.
Fuck this. Also fuck Valve.
It's worked well enough to stop your shitposting on the other boards. Why are you so scared?
>Why would you want people not to know you are the same guy who said something before?
Because everyone would see that he's the "cuck" spammer.
Activision barely released anything on PC in the last 5 years? I could have swore Diablo 3, Starcraft 2 and World of Warcraft were real games i didn;t just make up. Is there such thing as Call of Duty?
A world where HL3 isn't being made is definite proof PC gaming is dead, I used to be a "master race" too, but there's no denying it, the modern PC is just a multiplat machine to get them cheaper.
As an idort myself as well, I disagree with you. I find myself buying a game for each one of my consoles, PC, and handhelds every month. I never have a game that I don't want, that's coming out.
Although with PC, I rarely play any games on Steam. I get my multiplats on PS4, and use it as a "I didn't feel like playing this multiplat when it was released but I'll play it now since it's $10 on sale a year later" machine.
I mostly use it for emulators. Not many PC exclusives I can say that I'm interested in.
HAHAHAAHAHA ok kiddo, oh fucking kay. Keep thinking that this wasn't a bastion of PC gaming. Just because weebs were vocal doesn't mean they were the majority. Take a look at all the /v/ groupings on games and PC was always triple the size at least on every multiplayer game
You were obviously confused by faggots roleplaying Phoenix Wright and other assorted tripfaggotry. They were the minority, not the majority
>Barely released anything
>Konami includes games not on the PS4 (Rising)
>EA includes Sims 4
>Activision which includes Blizzards Starcraft/Diablo 3 (sells most on PC)/WoW and it's expansions etc
Stop with the excuses.
Either find another counter or stfu
>PC: one platform
>Laptops/Dells/Macbooks/Netbooks/Desktops/Mac Desktops/Mac Airs/PDAs/32 bit systems/64 bit systems/Linux based systems/Mac based systems/Window based systems
>Console includes Xbox 360/PS3/PS4/Wii U/Xbone (only consoles still being continued)
>i-it's more fair to compare PC (which includes every form of PC known to man) to 1 year old consoles!!!
>this damage control
Regardless, either way you look at it. Even if you do the typical PCuck way of:
>PC vs 1 year old console
PS4 alone in Ubisoft/Take Two/Konami etc has far more sales.
So either way, the fair way of PC vs consoles or the PCuck way of PC vs year old consoles, consoles win.
You're not only saying that PC gamers were ever a majority last decade but you're even saying it was the case for 2007-era 4chan, a tiny-ass message board about chinese cartoons then-populated mostly by poorfag americans.
You're even laughing in all-caps over how confident you are in this belief.
>HAHAHAAHAHA ok kiddo, oh fucking kay.
Am I on Youtube?
>It's fucking last-decade 4chan, dude. How are you gonna sit there and try to tell me PC games were popular here. This was a place to get away from that shit.
Well this might be your lucky day, now that PC games are taking over you can fuck right off again.
>UT pre Alpha
All those 100% playable by todays standards, but no players because everyone busy playing the latest flash graphics indie game sold for full price or trading hats at TF2.
4chan in general used to be a lot more intelligent and knowledgeable about technology, PC gaming was large on several boards, pre-and post the creation of /v/
Being condescending isn't limited to just youtube bb ;^)
I didn't say none of these companies did, only "some".
Konami only released the yearly PES which is always a bigger success on console, along with Castlevania. Consoles got plenty releases.
Take Two released Borderlands, Bioshock, and Civ. Consoles got plenty releases, among which GTAV.
This is obviously a terribly flawed comparison. As for the rest, "console" still isn't a platform. Just those Activision numbers are impressive: PC being half of what consoles represent, especially considering the lower prices, is no small thing.
But it would take two minutes of using your head to interpret those numbers properly.
there haven't been many very good games period recently. i've been spending most of my time playing older ps2/pc games. having a decent pc nowadays at least you have wii/gc, ps2, psp, ds games all able to be emulated
but I agree, the lack of good new games is pretty depressing. especially on pc
>Not just using your toaster PC for 99% of PCs exclusive library
>Not buying a PS4 for Sony(Persona/Ys/Yakuza etc) Console (FFXV/Kingdom Hearts 3 etc) / PS4 (Uncharted 4/Deep Down/Silent Hills/Bloodborne/Ratchet and Clank etc) exclusives and definitive version of multiplats (aside from the vocal minority of PC gamers with decent rigs)
>Not getting an N3DS
>Not owning the most relevant console and handheld currently out
>Not being a pleb
I mean look. 1 million PCucks just bought an early alpha of H1Z1. A fucking FREE2PLAY GAME. They are starved of games with a budget of over $5.
No wonder /v/ is full of bitter fags, you bought a neglected petition box for delayed consolized ports.
>I am so much of a casual faggot I didn't even notice the massive amount of awesome gems that come out every year on PC, not mentioning all the multi games and strategy masterpieces that never age

Sounds like OP is sucking too many dicks and not appreciating why PC is master race
Also! Here are the most played games on Steam
Why does Steam not have this on their front page anymore, I will not know.
This guy is around a lot. He's Ruggarell tier honestly. His filenames stick out and he hasn't quite realized yet. Pretty embarrassing.
Probably because it makes it blatantly clear that the vast majority of steam usage goes into playing Dota 2 and CSGO, both of which are populated mainly by third-world shitters
>Toaster tier free2play and prehistoric FPS games
Maybe because it shows the laughable state of PC gaming and completely backs up OPs point.
>I also like how you picked companies that barely released anything on PC those past five years.
>I didn't say none of these companies did, only "some".
You didn't say anything. You typed it, and i was able to just read it again. I am sure in your normal life you are use to getting away with that little "no i said...." trick during verbal conversations, because there is no actual record of it a person can just check. Now please go look in the mirror and punch yourself in the nose.
>Pillars of Eternity has a higher metacritic score than Loadborne
NEVER EVER SONYGGERS
I recently listened to /v/ and upgraded to PC. All I’ve had was dread and neglect.
When I saw Bloodborne get confirmed exclusive to the PS4 I legit teared up. All I had to show for my $900 rig were a few toaster exclusives that didn’t even require a gaming rig and consolized ports optimized like garbage. Every online based game that wasn’t a prehistoric FPS (like Counter Strike and TF2) or an MMO/MOBA (like WoW/Dota) had a weak as fuck community that for the most part died in a matter of weeks. Apparently all my fellow PCbros were too busy jerking over their rigs on /r/masterrace and /v/ to bother to play games, the other PCbros on TF2/Dota (etc) were all ruskies that owned pitiful netbooks.
Finding out GTA V and MGSV were delayed also triggered me greatly.
I frequent reddit /r/masterrace and /v/ just so I can feel apart of a ‘master race’. So far this title (that for the most part gets laughed at) has been the only saving grace of gaming on PC.
Seeing the PS4 lists always trigger me greatly, knowing that a cheaper alternative is getting these great games, seeing all the rave and hype at IGN/E3 revolve around this console just saddened me to the point of alcoholism. Why do developers treat us like this? We are humans too, we have feelings.
This isn’t a falseflag, just a confession,. I will not upgrade my PC any further and instead buy a PS4 and Wii U.
Now I know how based Big Boss feels. Gaming on PC truly is a burden, a burden I must carry forever more. A burden, known as the Master Race
You either play, or you do not play.
It's really that fucking simple.
Then again your dopamine production must be fucked, along with some other chemicals.
IF you really don't feel the good sensation when playing video games, do something else, for a long period of time.
Trust me, it really helps.
Please don't make me teach biology now.
And also, avoid freemium games, THOSE fuck up your dopamine production capabilities.
It's like someone took a thread from 2007, increased all the sequel numbers, and reposted it. Remember those people that thought consoles would be better and were eventually completely and irremediably disappointed? This is happening again.
It seems the right course of action is to keep supporting the PC, while at the same time opposing Steam, so that it remains an open platform. Nothing good will ever come out of consoles, and even if they seem tempting, their goal is to allow Microsoft or Sony to gain a monopoly of the gaming industry.
Consoles have significantly contributed to killing video games, and it'll continue as long as people will keep buying consoles.
Fun game. Total War games might take awhile to get fixed, but when they do, they're great.
Only problem with Attila I have is some factions can't change their generals bodyguard. Like the Langobeards or w/e their names are, they have Noble Germanic Warband as their bodyguard, which suck anus. I want Godan's troops.
Celtic DLC just came out, might go play that.
Yup. He uses the same imgs all the time, it's funny, he's too retarded to notice it. Or maybe that's the point.
>Shilling metacritic scores
>It's okay when Sony does
I forgot this was neo/v/
Activision released Starcraft 2, Diablo 3 and a few WoW expansions in the last 5 years> Diablo 3 is the third highest selling PC game of all time. WoW is second. This is number of copies, not revenue. How retarded are you?
Oh well, when he's made to leave home by his parents, he'll learn he can't do this to everybody.
Not that he talks to anybody outside of Internet cause he's so autistic.
Can you honestly play that game and say that it deserves a 93?
Silent Hills isn't exclusive, hell with Kojima out is probably cancelled now.
The rest of the games in the "PS4" section are seriously terrible aside from Bloodborne, Sony couldn't do a good first party game to save their lives. I'll give you the weeaboo games that are exclusive just because the PS4 is japanenese (Persona, Ys, Yakuza) but in terms of first party there's absolutely nothing good by Sony. MS and Nintendo are way better.
literally starving from actual games.
Fuckin nostalgia blinded manchild PCucks, fuck you all and your shit taste. PC is literally holding the industry now.
How can one be this embarrassingly wrong?
Can't wait to play GTA5 @ 4K 120fps ;^)
Why are all these people disappointed with PC looking at the PS4?
It literally has one decent game, fucking one. At least look at the xbone that has a couple of good games and this year is looking way better for it than the PS4.
I mean I'll get a PS4 like everybody else, if the console sells like 150 million you just can't ignore it, there will be tons of exclusives just because it is the best selling system. It's just that they won't come out any time soon, and I don't expect Sony to shit a single decent AAA.
>PC is literally holding the industry now.
Well actually 1080p 60 FPS, since im not that much of a graphics whore.
UT4 looks promising tho, too bad is already starving of players because PCucks literally have the worst fuckin taste in the world when it comes to MP games, guess everybody bussy buying hats at TF2 or getting MLG PRO at CSGarbage.
Facts are facts. When you find a fact that contradicts a belief you hold, it is better to question your belief than ignore facts. You view PC gaming as a religion. It is in decline and you know it. Instead of facing that fact you will come here and play semantics with people who do not share your delusion. You are not right, you are just difficult.You say good day, i am saying good luck.
>"I-I was proven wrong"
>"You can totally play them on a toaster"
>Why are all these people disappointed with PC looking at the PS4?
I could care less about the PoS4, but people that actualy came from the golden era of PC gaming, knows better that the shitty mess it has become.
Need to add Pillars of Eternity to that, which is current at 92 on MetaCritic.
Funny, Cucksolers will say that's proof their games and superior due to higher score, when it's really that there is so little of them, there isn't competition enough to knock them down the scoring table.
I think you made a mistake spending money to upgrade your rig. Complaining about it here makes me think you partially blame /v/ for this mistake.
First of all, never listen to /v/. Take anything you hear on /v/ and then spend your own time researching it. You need to remember that this is a land of ironic shitpostings. Never think of /v/ as one person, and don't do things solely because you think "that's what /v/ would do".
PC gaming was clearly never the best idea for you, yet you complain to /v/ as if people here are to blame. It sounds to me like you did no research on your own and now you've made a purchase you regret. Don't listen to console war trolls next time.
>It is in decline and you know it
But it's not though. You are one of those shitposters that has to force yourself to believe that because you don't like something that HAS to mean it's 'dying' somehow.
>Consolecucks put THIS much effort into falseflagging threads to validate their shitty purchases
Sorry that you bought a $400 brick m8, but it's not our fault.
You slipped up when you brought up the delayed ports, things which no actual PC gamers care about expect for as a way to make consolefaggots mad.
What's up with the anti-intellectualism that comes with being a console-drone?
PCs are better. Plain and simple.
You can sit there and bitch and moan about ports and exclusives, but the only reason everything isn't just distributed and released through PCs is because little children and Luddites who can't manage 7 form-fitted pieces of hardware create demand for an over-specialized piece of hardware that becomes obsolete faster with every generation.
Since OP bought a PC without knowing what he wanted, tell me some of the reasons you got into PC gaming!
Me? It has to be the fact that I can play any PC game for free.
Nah you got it wrong. I am a PC gamer before anything. Have been for over 15 years. The thing is there are no big developers left in PC. Valve, Crytech, Blizzard. These were developers who only developed for PC and pushed out the greatest games we have ever got. Now look. Valve is in the cosnole market, Crytech is making console games, and Blizzard is trying out free to play model. The glory days ended.
Blind fanboyism. The only reason that exclusives are the "deciding factor" for distinguishing consoles from PC is because that's LITERALLY all they have. They can't say their multiplats are better, they can't say the controller is better, they can't say the graphics, frame rate or anything is better, so they shift their goal posts to literally the one thing they have. Exclusives. Sony fags have exclusives so they trounce around and shit up the place like they won something if they do get an exclusive.
I don't quite remember the quote correctly but it went something like "arguing with an (X) is like playing chess with a pigeon, you can try your hardest you win, but in the end it's just going to stomp on all the pieces and walk around like it won". That's exactly what's happening and the only winning move is to not play.
But that's also a lie. Pc gaming is extremely popular and millions of games are bought every year. It's far from dead. Notice how consoles acquire more and more features that pcs already have with each new generation? They are becoming more like pcs because pcs are better in every way.
That and money. Why make $60 a game for a single universal platform when you can convince people to spend $400 on your clone platform so they'll then spend another $60 on your EXCLUSIVE game.
>can literally play every one of those PC exclusives on a toaster laptop
>all this list padding
Here's some more exclusives for PC. Make sure you get the latest GPU for them! It's not like you can play them on a literal potato!
>tfw Yakuza 0 and Bloodborne this past week
>FFXV/Ratchet and Clank/Silent Hills/Ys/Persona to look forward to
4 generations of objectively the best games, you thought you cucks would have learned by now
I feel you.
No matter which way you go, it seems like you get massively shit on.
I think the pc is the lesser of the evils, but I find myself replaying great classics more than buying new games. The game I've spent the most hours on by far, probably in my life? FTL, I just never get bored of it even after a year or two. It's simple, but fills a perfect nitch for me.
But yeah, being a "real" gamer is too expensive for what you get nowdays. There's so few games that I really enjoy anymore. The emphasis has been too much on graphics and too little on real gameplay in the recent years.
Now I prefer to watch youtube personalities play them than even play a lot of them myself now days. I spend my money on real guns and chilling out with skeet/rifle shooters and stuff at the range now. At least I get good bang for the entertainment buck that way. /v/ just isn't a viable hobby anymore now that there's so few games that can immerse me like they used to. Part of it is just me getting older, but part of it is definitely the laziness and greed on the part of the people who make games. No, I'm not spending $60/year on the lasted cod/battlefield, just to find they'll want that or more for dlc and bullshit like that soon after. Nope nope nope.
>All these sonyggers mad that Bloodborne was 20% loading screens and barely lasted them a day
Yeah whatever bitch nigger.
You will never EVER get on my level.
Where are your 4x games?
Where your your shitty H-games?
Do you even have any games with decent multiplayer?
PS4 is pracitcally a PC and you STILL don't have mods. No mods and payed online.
Where are the sales? Huh? And I see you getting into story driven games.
Atleast on PC we have the fucking decency to give it it's own Genre. Point and CLICK mother fucker.
Get. On. My. Level.
>very few games
>180+ playable games in under 2 years
>Yakuza 0/Dragon Quest/Bloodborne this month
I was one of the only people in the world i think who bought and played UT3 on PC. It was so bad i had to play against bots most of the time because finding a server with actual people in it was just not happening.
There is no good PC game that demands high end configuration. Building a 2k machine for a shitty unity/flash tier games is retarded.
I pirate and play all of PC exclusives FREE on my cheap casual lap top while I game on WiiU/ps3/4.
This is undeniably the choice. Suck my dick.
Except it wouldn't.
My 4chin toaster box that i've been using for 6 years would run those flash games perfectly.
Any old $50 notebook could run those games, most of them have:
>2 GB Ram
>Low low end GPU
There is objectively no reason to own a gaming PC from a purely gaming perspective.

>tfw use my netbook to play whatever toaster tier trash PC developers shit out
When will you cucks
Check out Forged Alliance Forever (FAF). It's an active multiplayer lobby for Supcom. The community still makes updates for the game and there's plenty of players still at it.
Same here, bought physical copy of UT3 day one, When finding servers with players instead of bots for big name game like UT was hard on a just released version its when i started realizing things werent going to be the same anymore.
>Check Cities Skyline minimum requirements
You should stop, it's getting too sad.
I'm going to level you with a second and hope I get a serious response, even though I doubt you will. I've seen you around shitloads, fucking everywhere in these console war threads? Why though? What are you trying to do? It's really beyond me at this point why you keep doing what you're doing. Do you believe you're somehow proving something in some way?
I seriously think PC gaming is on the up tbh. Valve are pushing PC pretty hard, people get pissed off because of less games from them but what they're doing is important for the health of the platform in the long term.
Also interesting is Star Citizen. The game itself may turn out not great but the Kickstarter basically showed to anyone watching that there is huge demand for high end PC exclusives. That and POE are overturning the conventional wisdoms about PC exclusives.
Plus when people get sick of the PS4 and it's weak hardware in a year or two I imagine we'll get another PC bounce
Don't you think people would've been saying DeS was the better game before it came out, if it was only because it was exclusive? The only time it could fairly be considered better is after DaS came out.
What most people do not know is that UT3 on PS3 had full kb/mouse support. It also had active servers for about the first year. I bought both, PC and ps3, the ps3 version may not have been "better", but it sure as fuck was money better spent.
>mfw I'm using the same build from 5 years ago
You should never drop consoles in favor of PCs.
I enjoy my PC as a secondary platform for gaming: emulation, indies and the occasional AAA release. It feels great, I'm still enjoying myself, and I don't even have to upgrade for this current gen.
>tfw bought $1000 gaming pc
>time to play some games
>check top games at pic related website
>buyer's remorse immediately kicks in
name me 5 PC exclusives that got released that can extensively use my i7 and GTX 980
literally no point in buying a PC
Yeah, whatever fuccboi.
You pay half of this monthly in order to use your own internet. If I didn't know any better I'd say Phil Fish was the CEO of Sony, because right now you're choking on it.
5i years.... That is my same time frame. I have a watercooled i7-930 oc'd to 3.4ghz and a gtx480. really as good as it could have been built 5 years ago. I struggle to run games today, some i do not even meet recomended settings for...... But you somehow must have got magical parts that upgraded themselves since. Unless you did a 3way sli 480 set up or something ridiculous.
>he things silent hills is exclusive or actually coming out
Sony made it clear that their consoles are only worth it in the last year of their existence. Buying a PS4 now when it has one good game is foolish. I mean I get it if you buy an xbone or wii u, but PS4? come the fuck on cuck.
That's okay, I'm well off because I'm not spending a penny on PC games :^)
Dragon Quest hasn't been good in years, and it's really ironic that the only reason why DQ8 was any good was because we fixed it when it was ported. When was the last time a Dragon Quest game was good?
I'll stop supporting steam when the other platforms stop being shit
>origin charges me in EU (along with the retarded EU = USD pricing) despite everywhere else charging me in USD
>uplay is unreliable, revoked my games once a while ago only to restore them afterwards
I'm not going to stop using steam just because the other companies can't get their heads out of their asses. Remember GFWL? That could have easily killed steam but MS never put any effort into it, now it's dead.
I swear people who think steam is a threat to the free market have no clue what a free market really is.
>he bought a gaming PC for exclusives
Stop, you shoulda got a PS4 and 3DS (with the money saved from upgrading your overglorified petition box) and used a toaster PC for PCuck exclusives.
But like 80% of games are multiplats that I'm playing better versions of than you
It's funny how when you look at PS4 sales charts the most popular games are multiplats but on /v/ for some reason Sonyggers just want to pretend those games don't exist
If you up your ram to 8gb you will squeek by. Some games will allow you to really drop graphical settings and even remove some textures within the .ini file. I had to do this with Skyrim on my pc.
>PCuck kikestarter that looks like an offline Runescape
Let's be real. If Bloodborne didn't blow all the PCucks the fuck out, you wouldn't even be talking about this flash game trash
That would be the PCucks. All that you guys have are indie flash trash as exclusives. All that I play on my toaster for free.

If you think you need an i7 to game don't buy a PC, you are way too ignorant and I wouldn't want you in the PC mustard race.
An i5 can lazily take on all the recent games while barely using half of its potential. You need high end processors for video editing, music creating, programming, etc, not gaming.
>Dragon Quest hasn't been good in years
Why do you insist on being full of shit, anon?
It's one for you to dislike DQ but claiming it hasn't been good is just plain bullshit.
I have a hard time remembering a bad Dragon Quest game.

Don't fool yourself, OP.
Games that would have been pc exclusive 15 years ago have all been lost to consoles.
What's worse, is that consoles are the main dev platform, which means games are merely ported to pc.
Consoles have stolen both AAA and indy games from pc. I think this is why the term pcuck came about.
Anyhoo, with that said, I'm close to selling bith my wiiu and ps4 to invest in pc. When I gamed on my laptop, I accumulated 51 steam games, so right off the bat I'll have those readily available.

Nigger you can just go buy both of those for like 200$ now. I don't know why you listed Tales of because the only worth while games aside from Vesperia are on PS2 and Gamecube, which is emulateable.
>No DMC because I said so xD
DMC3 is emulateable, DMC4 is best played on PC. I don't give enough of a fuck about DmC to know anything about how it plays on PC, so you can have it.
