I can’t hear you over the amount of money I save thanks to my console
Look at those glorious tiddies...
@ThePandaPool , moobs
@ThePandaPool , BungleBobbles
@WelI Obviously, mantiddies
@ThePandaPool , all I can think is someone took the time to painstakingly draw them
Or you could just pay $1000 and maybe upgrade a video card 5 years later and skip buying several generations of consoles.
@Dephenistrator, not in this economy, especially if you want a pc that's on par with current consoles graphically.
@Marida Cruz, that's weird since thats what i did and what i did for helping my bro order his comp two years ago and my dad a gaming pc this year. Not trying to be rude it's just if you include those and my other previous gaming pcs I've done this 4 times since i was 19. I don't consider it a debate, it's my reality
@Dephenistrator, if you can find a way to buy a pc for $1000 or less that's a match graphically for the consoles that are coming out this year, maybe I'll believe you.
@Marida Cruz, look harder at the market and at the demands of modern games. The hardware has gotten better, and the latest sold by companies is still expensive but the ram and video cards games actually use are still fairly the same as years ago. There's always exceptions of course, but must games run at 8 gig ram or just under/over, most video demands on games are set to match consoles just so they can run on both. Companies like nvidia and all of them, they will stop selling older stuff even if it's almost the same and they keep charging more. The key is patience and thoroughly researching what your getting
@Dephenistrator, that tells me basically nothing, as doing exactly that has not found me a way to get anything that less than a thousand dollars and as good as the console I own graphically. The only other reccomendation I've gotten to help with price is to build a pc, but i have nowhere near the technical know how to do that and would be scared that I'd break something, thus I'd need to hire someone to do it, which would result in negating the price advantage that supposedly has.
@Marida Cruz, well, It takes me weeks to narrow down a computer so that wasn't supposed to be an instant win. I never built a computer before either for similar reasons. If your spending even a couple hundred dollars, i would research before throwing away that much money. Console are like netflix or HBOgo anyway, they are cheap and easy and also just a slice of anything good you can truly see out there
@Dephenistrator, hold up... “5 years later” “several generation of consoles” Ahahaha what? I want to live in this world! I still have the Xbox one I got in 2011 and still even have my perfectly working 360 elite from 2005... I built for the first and only time in 2011 a gaming PC.... totally true about doing a bit of research before spending any money like you said... funny thing is that I never used my gaming pc for gaming ( ͡° ͜ʖ ͡°) that is why I haven’t built another... she is blazing fast still for my activities
@Marida Cruz, look at the recommended specs for the games you want to play and go from there. Most games will run perfectly fine on sub $1000 computers. The only time to spend money on high end CPU and GPU is when you want to stream or play vr. I built a $1000 pc in 2013 using out dated parts and I just upgraded the gpu because the games I'm playing need a 4gb GPU.
@seeUpee, I like PC gaming, but I also like my console. Some games for just feel right on certain systems. RPGs: PC.
Hatsune Miku project Diva X: PS4
@seeUpee, lol, i guess you still spend some quality time with your pc!
I used to keep up both with playstation and xbox consoles and occasionally a generation behind in Nintendo. It was really expensive so i just switched to pc instead and got access to more games
@Dephenistrator, no doubt, you get better prices too
@seeUpee, yeah, some are still triple A price but most games i buy are about $10
@Dephenistrator, I have the game pass on the Xbox which is like 11 bucks a month. Highly recommend it. So far I’m really happy with it and they keep rolling out with awesome games all the time... have seven already in queue once I finish up Blair Witch that I’m playing now
@Dephenistrator, you are right, get an i7,32gb ram, and an ssd and you can upgrade just the graphics every so often and you can game with that pc for a long time. I used to build gaming pcs for a living this is the best strategy.
@CrazyRightWinger, XD that's awesome because that's the core of my setup right now! The toughest game for me to run is Ark Survival, and that runs fine on this setup so i can play whatever I want
@Dephenistrator, shut up, nerd
@Noctobo, you can't actually make me shut up thus your meager threat is as impotent as the rest of you
@Marida Cruz, Your problem is your lack of knowledge in the area, and inability to do it yourself. Not trying to be mean, just stating the facts. I am in the same boat as Dephenistrator, I built my computer in 2015 for just under $1k, and only have to swap out the GPU maybe this year, to stay current. That's about 5 years. I'd offer to build it for you, if I was near you.
@Thatoneguymayknow, is just like to point out that prices haven't gone down since 2015, and new parts keep getting more expensive, while new games keep requiring newer parts to be able to run at high fps and still look good. I'm also perfectly aware of what my problems are, as I outright stated them, and you seem to have just rephrased what I said in a more condescending way.
I also don't know if I should accept the help of someone who just downvoted all my comments and has thus proved they don't like me, or at least my opinions.
@Marida Cruz, gaming on the PC comes out to be a lot cheaper than playing on a console due to the lack of microtransactions. Games cost more on consoles, you don't have to pay to play online on a pc, PC's are easier to fix and upgrade. The one thing consoles have are exclusive titles, but other than that pc gaming is the way to go.
@microman, just like with the person before you, if you're going to try to act friendly and offer advice, maybe don't start by downvoting all of my comments. It doesn't exactly make you seem like the type of person I'd want to take advice from.
@Baby Cthulhu, Same, though wouldn't mind persona being on the switch. fvck it I want everthing on the switch
Reasons PC’s will ALWAYS be better than consoles:
-no custom graphics settings on consoles
-little/no mod support consoles
-mmo’s/mobas are almost exclusively on PC (yes there are exceptions but I said almost)
-no ultrawide/multi-display support on consoles
-lower fps(even if you *can* run 60fps on consoles 144+ is quickly becoming the new gold standard)
-lower quality/fps on the same settings unless you’re running a toaster
-no adaptive refresh rates on consoles
-piss poor multitasking capabilities on consoles
-not true 60fps or 4k for games that claim to support it. On consoles. It’s all upscaled not native.
-can use whatever controller or mouse and keyboard you want.
-looks cool and you can customize it however you want.
-can update parts as needed instead of getting a new console every 5 years
Reasons Consoles are *better* than PCs
-dont have to put it together yourself or pay someone to do it for you
Seems pretty cut and dry to me
@Niam Leeson, you forgot that it’s backwards compatible for games.
@Niam Leeson, consoles have exclusive titles. Sometimes that's a deal breaker.
@Megahut, also true. And backwards compatibility for some games is trash on consoles, Morrowind for example
@Niam Leeson, have console players that own elderscrolls without mods even ever truly played the game before?
@Dephenistrator, yes and no. I don’t think you need mods to make a game great, but they do make it a helluva lot more fun. I personally don’t mod until my second playthrough usually. But running around at 99.9% of the speed of light and jumping 50feet in the air while dressed like walter white makes Morrowind really interesting.
@Niam Leeson, oh man, i modded morrowind and mostly oblivion extensively. I made teleportation magics, summons of skeletons from corpses based on the corpses stats, plants that grew and died and spawned new plants, a spell to throw people 500 units in the air (about 4-5 stories in think. Killed anything weaker than a guard), i overhauled 20 or so different versions of every equipment so it leveled up with you up to level 50 instead of in tiers based only on metal, i made gems equipable and give element resistance, i made a total overhaul where you would fight an arena; get loot; buy skills/equipment; repeat, i even had a story file where i was so into the character that i did stuff like decided to destroy a village with a spell and modded the village into burning shambles (evil playthrough), i also made a rebuild of the game where each equipment handled a set of skill and attribute and the equips leveled your character instead with level caps equal to the metal type, and a test -
@Niam Leeson, - and a test example of invisible and one second long lived rats that move, spawn stuff, spawn other specialized rats, to randomly generate trees, enemies, architecture, treasure chest, basically a whole world. Only problem is the rats and loading times made the first time in any new area completely stop your travel every 500 feet into the new area for almost a minute
This is exactly how it feels and it’s glorious
Tiddies!!! Wait... wait... not the same... just look away...
