You're attacking strawmen here. Nobody is saying those games are bad. They are just not good enough to buy an overpriced piece of plastic, let alone play it as a slide show. No game really is. I didn't even think of Yakuza as a console game, considering the apparently best games of the series are also on PC. But sure, whatever you want to victimize yourself with.

Instead of chastising people for not playing great games that aren't on their platform of choice you should instead be advocating that those great games are ported to as many platforms as possible so that many more people can enjoy them.

I think you misunderstood me. Saying "It can't be that good!" =/= "It's a bad game." They know perfectly well it's a good game. They just deny it being an absolutely amazing groundbreaking game. That is until they finally get their hands on it. And I've always gotten a chuckle out of that.

 If you can afford to build a PC you can afford a console. Sure, lots of 3rd party series really should be platform agnostic. But let's face it. Many games will be stuck to a single platform for various reasons. You don't see console gamers whining that Warhammer II isn't on their platform of choice. I guarantee you that any console gamer that wants to play Warhammer (or other PC-Only games), will either build a PC or somehow live with the fact that they can't play a few games.

I haven't been a single platform gamer since I was 14 years old. For most serious gamers, sticking to and rooting for a single platform is something they grow out of once they get a larger income.

People can have a lot of different and valid reasons for not purchasing multiple systems. And it can be difficult to know whether or not something is groudbreaking before you try it yourself. It may even take several hours to get there.

But I don't think we should dwell on this in Vivster's (otherwise) positive thread about the game. So let's try to focus on the purpose of the thread.
