My one and only reason: console gaming is more socially acceptable.

If you say so.


it goes in phases, back in 2007 it was the cool things thanks to the Wii, I do feel like right now less adults my age play consoles... oh well their loss.

I guess you don't watch all the professional twitch/yt people who play games for fvarious charities etc. Or the whole team who does the Red VS Blue series.


I am referring to my peers, not some people I dont know who stream video games.

So you're talking about the group of people you know. Doesn't mean the rest of the world is the same.



Around the Network

Obtaining it? Yeah, I'll give em that.

Playing it? Nope. The process of downloading and playing a game on steam vs psn/xbl is exactly the same.



Did someone really say console gaming is more socially acceptable? What pathetic dumbed down social circle do you hang out with? I've ran into more PC gamers in the corporate/professional world than I have console gamers. Heck my boss is a PC gamer. His rig puts mine to shame. My co-workers mostly PC game. My friends are mainly PC gamers. All have successful and active social lives. Most are married now too. This isn't the 80s anymore. Get that out of your heads.



I remember years ago when HDD's were just being released with consoles and one of the biggest gripes console gamers had with PC games were "unfinished games" and patches. I said at with the release of consoles with hdd's that console gamers would soon also experience patches and the "unfinished games" you complain about with PC's and was brushed off as some crazy hobo! Fast forward to today and both PC and console are alike in that respect.

As much as conole gamers piss and moan about the "PC master race" the ones who complain are just as bad. Anyone who is not technologically inept can operate a computer well enough that all these "trumped up" concerns are moot! If you are, this is 2014 fix that for crying out loud! You have NO excuse! Been gaming on PC for many years and consoles a little longer and I love both! I play my RTS and FPS genres on PC simply because I feel that is the best place to possibly play them and everything else on the console. Again, the people that piss and moan about the disadvantages of a PC clearly have no clue at all. None.

Mostly kids to be honest. "Wah this PC is too complicated. Mommy I want my tablet back." *cry*
