No i dont reply to most of your posts cos you twist things, try making it look like people are saying something completely different then what they are saying, and then try using alot of mis facts to get your say in.

I mean now you're even trying to discredit the games that started the FPS Genre and make it look like it was consoles that "Really" started it...

And like i said before and this is the last time. No one is saying that exclusives dont move hardware but the is also more to it. For instance i know some people who own a PS4 but all they play on it are 3rd party games, CoD, GTA, Fifa and dont touch any of Sony's exclusives cos the only genres they are into are FPS Open world driving games like gta and football. And you are kidding yourself if you dont think the is many more gamers like this.

But that is not me saying that exclusives dont make a person buy a system, since i only buy systems for exclusives and play all my 3rd party games on PC. But thats cos im a PC gamer and its not as black and white as you try to make it out to be when it comes to exclusives, since the is so many different gamers with so many different tastes.

I'm just saying, that Only because someone created the genre, as you say the PC Gaming, created the FPS, does not means that they made the genre popular, the Consoles are who made the Shooter genre popular, and are who made GTA, what it is today.


Without the  $ of the Console sales, and only with the PC Sales, the Triple A Shooter genre on PC, would be considered "Niche" compared with the Consoles.

Left 4 Dead, is the most sucessful Triple A Shooter on PC, but is also a Horror-shooter game, the other are MMORPG Shooters, like Cross-fire, and Counter Strike.


I'm saying without the PC, The genre would not  be created, but without the Consoles, they would have no reasons, or foundings to make Triple A Shooters, only MMORPG, if Consoles die, and they will if exclusives are on Computer, the Developers will try to mimic the Market leader,  they aways do that, and what would be the Market Leader ?, League of Legends, World of Warcraft, and Cross-fire, are the market leaders, so the whole picture would not be so good.

Ok, thanks for that information .
