It does seem to be true that PC gamers do not have any of the protection afforded to console gamers, which does seem awfully unfair. There are no repercussions for insulting PC gaming and, by extension, those who play on PC. I'd like to see that addressed, even if just superficially.

I play about 50/50 between console and PC but the double standard makes me not want to talk about PC gaming as much.


How is insulting PC gaming the same as insulting a person?



Don't make this sound like a long war of discrimination against PC fans.

Look, usually most flaming is moderated, so you can't say console-lovers have protection.

I banned myself to lurker status for 3 years and I mostly play PC only...coincidence?

This site from what i can tell is really one sided against pc gamers atm. And i believe that a lot got to do with that is the fact that almost every mod is a console fan first and pc being 2nd or not even a thought to them.

We need more PC fans as mods to even things out as i have seen a very unfiar treatment of pc users here compared to console users.

Fact if a PC user calls a console user a fanboy, that user will be banned or warned. IF a console user calls a PC user a PC fanboy or elitist that user wont have nothing happen to him.

Fact. If a console user makes a thread in gaming discussion saying very old facts about pc and pretty much trolling the one thing over and over again that user wont have anything happen to him.

If a pc user does the same thing he will get a warning or a ban with the thread closed.

This is all things that happens here with many more. And i believe having more pc mods, and having mods thats fans of one console or another, stick mostly to their sections would fix this problem.


I'm on a PC right now - does that count?

On topic - your complaints about unequal treatment are not grounded in reality.  Every faction on VGChartz thinks the mods are biased against them.  

If somebody calls somebody a fanboy here, generally, they're going to catch a moderation for it.

There are mods who game on PC already. Perhaps not exclusively PC, but I don't think that's a problem.

I dont think you have been in enough pc discussion threads to see the problem imo.

Trust me i know each fraction is going to have their complaints, but PC users have it the worst. I have also seen no one yet get banned for saying PC elitist, and it really is the same thing as calling a pc user a fanboy, since its a way to try downgrade them and make their points invalid.

And like i said in my op, i know the is mods here that use pc too. But its mostly games on console first pc 2nd or not at all. So i think we need more mods that game on PC first and console 2nd or not at all.

If a person earns their position to become a mod they'll become one. We're not making purposeful equal amounts of mods for each fan faction to suit the needs of some weird affirmative action. Plus this site is made FOR console sales, PCs don't often come into the equation for that reason. Plus there are PC mods, Tachi, me, Miguel, Blue, and a few others use PC regularly. Right now Im playing through Undertale

Plus I'm primarily a handheld gamer and yet theres like maybe 1 other mod (if that) that primarily handheld games. Am I pissy about it? No. It's a non issue just like this threads topic

Exactly where did you get person from? unless you think insulting a console is the same as insulting a person??.

Anyway, insulting any system here should be banned or allowed for all!.

And also spreading false facts and lies about a system repeatly should also be classed as a trolling and trying to start flame wars act and should be banned in such a way. Same excuse the mods use for backseat modding something i think is silly since if the mod isnt doing their job well then clearly they should be glad for a user to take it on themselfs.. I could understand if the only comment from that user in the whole thread was "Im going to report you", but when that user has been engaging in discussion, and the person thats trolling is just trolling. Then clearly the mods should be able to see who should be banned and who should be warned.

But clearly on this site the pc user gets banned well the console user who is trolling gets to walk away.

Its not a long war. In fact before 2013 it was never really a problem. Its just now atm pc doesnt have as much protection against such sly jabs as console users has at the moment. And console fans uses them loop holes to troll and bypass bans. Like really you can call me a PC elitist and the is nothing in the rules stating you can be banned for doing such when really it should fall under the same thing as calling someone a fanboy.

You can troll pc with comments like "You cant use a tv or joypad" "Every game on pc is broken" etc and nothing will happen to you. And i dont mean just once you can go into every thread that has "PC" in the title and say such stuff and nothing will happen to you.

Its when the mods start taking care of stuff like that then ill have faith that vgc is fair for a pc users.

Clearly a person needs to earn the statues. But if your trying to tell me that VGC has not giving out mod possitions before to fill a gap im sorry to say but your wrong. Maybe thats cos your not here long enough and dont know what it was like. I remember this site had a huge amount of Sony fans, Then it got a bunch of nintendo fans, then some more Xbox fans, and then some more Sony fans cos they felt left out only to then higher more Nintendo fans again.

Yes you play on pc. Yes im sure if you noticed some of the trolling comments you might do something about them.

But the fact is "Some" console gamers get away with way way too much trolling against pc users. And like i said in my other post, saying things such as "PC cant use tv's or joypads" "every pc game is broke" etc should be classed as trolling and dealt with in such a way. Also calling a pc user an elitiest should also be dealt with the same as calling someone a fanboy and imo should also be added to the rules.

When users here start getting banned/warned for doing such things, then like i said ill have faith in the mods thats already here. Till then i think the problem wont be fixed till we get pc mods thats willing to watch out for such things and do whats right.

(BTW none of what im saying means im trying to say the mods that we have are bad or that, just that we need a mod thats maybe more willing to read most of the pc type threads).

You must not see that many console discussions then. When it comes to consoles they can easily be called trash. Cough Starfox WiiU version Cough    Just realize that mods do their best to stop all types of flaming. One of the only reasons why PC insults may not be moderated is because PC is so diverse to the point that one's criticism will not be towards all PC users. Consoles are different though. You can't customize them in any shape or form you want.
