It’s not that I’m against it at all, I just don’t have money and my schedule most definitely can’t support more than maybe 10 hours a week. So the value just isn’t there for me to get a PC vs something cheaper and ready to go at anytime.
@Somervillage, same reason I’ve not got the newest gen console too
Enjoy your stuff and we’ll enjoy ours. Why does everything have to be a competition?
@eleven, cAusE We tHa Pc mAStA rAcE, uh REEEEE
@eleven, competition breeds creation
@Petersquatch, Well, I would like to see your console play every game known to man with nude mods.
@thatoneguymaybe, I actually am a PC bro I just like making fun of our obvious superiority. I do have a ps4 pro for those sweet console exclusives, mostly The Last of Us and Uncharted.
@Petersquatch, Both good reasons, if you don't want to play the ported versions on PC.
I have both as well. Just not the atrocity that is The Last of Us 2
@thatoneguymaybe, I couldn't even get through the game. The first one is a true masterpiece
That’s funny because most, if not all of the best games are consoles exclusives
@Sterling M Archer, sure until they switch to a PC. In all reality a top competition pc is way out of most people's price range but they just play better and have waaaaay better sensitivity for shooters and versatility for games.
I wont criticize any consoles other than the switch though because that shjt sucks unless you are just getting started kinda like asteroids or pacman.
@Runnin with scissors, my only problem with the switch is the game prices. They have 5 year old games still selling for $60
@110100100, at least with Nintendo you know they have tested the games thoroughly to make sure they are fun and stable. They are crazy high in price, which is annoying as they are the more family friendly console.
@Sterling M Archer, sorry bud but outside of Nintendo console exclusives don’t exist anymore
@Sterling M Archer, Well, you can still play those exclusives on PC, because of porting. Gosh I love pirates.
@Reluctantkitty , are you forgetting about all the PS exclusives? And yeah, of course, illegally you can
@110100100, also their controllers are garbage. Like they get drift issues after a couple months of use and are to small to fit in most adult male hands
When a PlayStation 5 is selling online for almost as much as a Dell gaming PC with an RTX 3060 Ti GPU, it no longer makes sense to buy those consoles
@Invisigoth, don't even buy from a scalper
@Invisigoth, ….bruh, that’s IF you buy them from scrappers. You’re saying that like that’s the retail price.
That’s like saying it no longer makes sense to buy PCs because scrappers are selling them the same price as a Bugatti Chiron Pur Sport
I just like the diversity of PC and that's where all my friends play. So PC it is. I used to play consoles all the time, and I loved them, but I just got so tired of having to choose consoles each time they came out, I wanted to play both, so PC helped there.
But I still have older consoles around because sometimes nothing beats a couch gaming session lol
I’m super happy with both.
So I just learned that "Pee is stored in the balls" is an unreleased song from Daft Punk in 2012.
PC: “… but they stay angry.”
Why not both? I have a gaming pc and collect consoles
As someone who went from console to PC... ye
If you buy the 3 Major Consoles to have some variety, you not only will have spent more than a PC, but also still have only a tiny fraction of both games, and capability as a PC.
That being said, I own consoles and a PC. But certain things collect more dust than the other.
I don’t like using a keyboard and mouse for gaming so even with my PC I use a controller
@I Are Lebo, You do you, I know guys like that. Apparently it's wierd to specialize in racing games and play exclusively with mouse and keyboard.
I have scared people because they didn't know I could beat them with a keyboard.
I don't see the appeal of a controller, but to each their own.
@thatoneguymaybe, I mean, it’s more about how leaning over the keyboard hurts my back.
You can adapt to pretty much any control scheme. Also some types of games work better with different control styles.
@thatoneguymaybe, playing games like Dirt Rally 2 with a keyboard is nearly impossible. Pressing W is usually too much throttle input. I would recommend at least buying a controller for a more competitive and comfortable experience.
As for the appeal of using a controller for FPSs, here's a few.
@I Are Lebo, I mean, you aren't supposed to lean over a keyboard..
@member berry, I use minute variations of presses for controlling the throttle, so I can overcome that, plus if you have the right keyboard you can vary the press.
I own both Dirt Rally and Dirt Rally 2.0, but they aren't great games on their own in the first place in my opinion. It took time to become accustomed to their wildly different environment reactions. They don't play physics like many other games. I don't find the throttle hard, it's just the way the cars respond to anything that is the problem.
Also, you listed no reasons, either you were making a joke, or forgot.
There is no advantage to FPS games with a controller, unless you use Auto Assist. You can be far more precise with a mouse.
@I Are Lebo, I’m the same. I have an issue with my hands where they don’t respond to commands that fast. By adding more buttons than the ones I’d use on a controller I suck at any game I’m playing. Having both a stick and a limited supply of buttons I end up outperforming my friends. It’s weird because my hands suck. My handwriting looks like a third graders. The literal only thing I can do well with them is play video games on a controller
