Long gone are the days when it was popular to say PC master race, yet only now does it truly feel like it's become just that.

The other day when I was playing Guardians of the Galaxy, it was a constant struggle to find the right graphics settings for my PC. I wanted the most graphics and pixels onscreen but inevitably always had to settle for the 900p which gave me good performance. It was also kind of a big hassle to get everything working right, the setup, the controller and all that stuff which is way more practical with consoles. So it made me want to get a new console, not like I have any money to do that now anyway.

Then I go and check them online. The new consoles only run the game at either 1080p60, or 2160p30. Well that's disappointing. Then I look up the prices. Any one of them would cost twice as much as a decent GPU, which is the only underwhelming thing about my PC. Any RTX card I get will give me significantly better performance, so there goes any wish of getting a console.

It's really great to have all the Microsoft exclusives and now most of the Sony exclusives too. As someone who owns Nintendo consoles I don't mind it too much that those stay exclusive, but still, would be awesome to play them in 4K at 60fps. But even without Nintendo exclusives, PC master race.

If you're ever having issues with balancing settings, r/Optimised gaming is a neat place to visit. I found it a few months back, though it only has some select AAA titles on the roster, it's got a mixture of DF optimised settings and user defined:

Step right up come on in, feel the buzz in your veins, I'm like an chemical electrical right into your brain and I'm the one who killed the Radio, soon you'll all see

So pay up motherfuckers you belong to "V"
