Forums - Gaming Discussion - Games should be made "EXCLUSIVE" for one platform again

I am not talking about cross play. I am referring to access to games. Majority of PC gamers have access to the same libraries. Unless.. like i stated before you are gaming on another OS like Apple which is restricted. Thats why to me PC gaming is important. Anyone can own a PC and majority has the same access to the same games. Do you see PC fans fighting over games like the console fans do? 

Having access brings gamers togother, today's gaming is far from this. Gamers are missing out on Gems unless they can afford multiplatforms, and ill admit i wasnt a rich child, i had to sacrifice my choices to play what i liked hence why i was a major Nintendo gamer in my youth.

I may be wrong, but I remember a lot of PC gamers complaining about console holding them down, and about the games exclusives to consoles.

I am referring to inhouse fighting, something console gamers do to each other every generation. I rarely.. if not never hear PC gamers argue or fight over little things like games. Probably because we are too busy playing the massive libraries given to us. Its all thanks to the accessibility. Console manufacturers want to lock up games so you and others cant play them which leads to fighting and arguing. Which is the modern gaming industry today, I cannot go on any forum, thread or channel about console games without some form of war, nonsense debate or comparisons.

You are referring to the typical PC Master Race fan.

As are many console fans, despite the bickering. And it doesn't matter if consoles support cross-play or not, the "fighting and arguing" will always exist. To think otherwise is extremely naive.

If you have this massive library, why are you here arguing them?

All games should be exclusively made for PC's in the perfect world. But since we don't live in that world I am glad that some console makers also develop some really good games. Games like Until Dawn, Detroit and others might not exist/survive on the market if there wasn't a console company behind it. Same goes for dreams if AAA gaming all releases on a single platform they would all follow the worst gaming trends like microtransactions, loot boxes, pay to win etc. Exclusive games tends to have less of those.

It's also why I'm glad the opposite happens for PC as well.

I think this is more of an issue about how the hardware is built now.

They are like neutered computers now.

32-bit era and before were machines with very specific things they were capable of.

Sega Saturn rocked at Sprites, but couldn't do 3D too well.

NEO GEO, everything is made of sprites.

Nintendo is the only platform that still has that proprietary "can't make your game the same anywhere else" mentality.  

 

I dig it and agree I would like to see exclusive games come through like they used to across all platforms,  though admittedly its not the best thing for consumers.

And you should, besides gaming on 2 or 3 systems isn't as expensive or the drama as many people are making it seem to be. You can buy a PS4 for a few hundred dollars with a game these days. As for PC for $1000 you can put a pc together that will probably be better than a PS5 if it launches holiday 2020. Which you can also use for a buttload of other things.

Do you not see how hypocritical this post is? Even just in the fact that you are suggesting that console gamers are "in fighting" if they're having a disagreement between Xbox or PS4, there is as much connection between a gamer who likes the PS4 over the X1 as there is the Ps4 over the PC, don't think of gaming industry as Consoles Vs PC, doesn't work like that in the slightest, just because it isn't your camp of choice that doesn't mean that every other perceived enemy of yours automatically should love each other as a console ally, it's actually insane a way to think.

Would pretty much be the same if anyone who owned a Ps4 considered it "in fighting" if Switch/X1 and PC gamers were fighting among themselves. Stop creating a Them Vs Us battle in your head , that's not how things work in reality.

Wouldn't take 5 mins to find one of total biscuits sad rants about some game not being ported to the PC from consoles or crying because a game is also going to be on the consoles btw, would link one but his channel doesn't deserve the google metric.

Don't forget the complains of games exclusively on MS Store, or Steam or GoG, etc.

Oh aye indeed I had forgotten about the in fighting on PC as well of EA pulling their games for Origin, Activision for Battle.net or Microsoft deciding it wants to bury their games behind candy crush clones on the Win10 store :D
