Consoles or PC?
« on: May 19, 2005, 01:28:27 AM »
I was about to rant in another consoles thread, but I decided to give it it's own thread since it would be more polite rather than going offtopic.

Anyways, I was wandering, why would you want to use a console if it has so many limitations in front of a PC?
  • Graphics on a recently produced PC is as good as a console has
  • Most PC games has modding abliities
  • Input (mouse, keyboard) plays much easier (especially for the FPS games)
  • Gamepad can be plugged into a PC for a console gaming experience
  • Ability to surf the internet (OK, my apologies, Xbox)
  • Purchasing console games is a bitch because they are even more expensive than PC games
I just don't get it. The only useful thing I see in posessing a console is the fact that you can plug it into any TV, anywhere in the house.  :wacko:

It's a draw. Both PC's and Consoles have their pro's and cons.

Console. I only use the PC for various media fuckarounds nowadays. (Except for modding)

Consoles, of course. You know the game has been designed for the console, so it will work. No messin' around. I rarely play anything with PC (well, Duke, of course) - the true gamings happen with a console, no doubt about it.

PC without a doubt. Games are a lot better, controls are better, more online gaming opportunities, you can mod, graphics are easily better, games are cheaper etc.

Yes, in FPS games, but I don't even want to think about playing GTA or MGS with a fucking keyboard.  :blink:

How is GTA (I assume you mean the new ones) any different from FPS games when it comes to controllers? Even driving is a lot easier with a keyboard&mouse.

I sooner perfer consoles, although I will give FPS games the benefit of the doubt on PC since the mouse and keyboard setup is way better.

But PC games just can't top the feeling of kicking back on my couch with my surround sound on and playing a game on my 42 inch plasma tv ;)

PC games dominate in the RTS, MMORPG, and FPS game market, but when it comes to side scrollers, platformers, racing, RPGs, sports, puzzle, adventure games the PC just can't compare.

PCs are built for all around programs and such, while on the other hand consoles are designed specifically for video games....HMmmmm.

Anyways, I have the best in both worlds so it doesn't bother me if people are going to be strictly console or pc nazi's and not even compromise and acknowledge that some genres are better on one while some are better on the other.

Pc is for modding, porn, and internet ( which is porn ). Consoles and handhelds ( are handhelds also consoles btw? ) are pure for games. So yeah, consoles. They don't require installation, bugfixes, and you don't have to upgrade them every week to play a new game.

Altough with the next-gen stuff I'm kindof worried that consoles ARE going to have installation things and such.. the xbox already uses the internet for patches.. so I'm desperately sqeezing nintendo's butt-cheeks in hope that they'll keep gaming 'pure'.

Let's see, you can surf the net with your Xbox, you can stream videos off the net, my brother was watching through a webcam that was showing what was going on in New York at that very moment, and you can download and watch game/movie trailers, or reviews for that matter too.

You can play on the internet with your Xbox too (without paying anything) so I imagine alot of people that post here doesn't really know shit about what you can do with it at all.

Edit: Forgot that you can watch Tv with it, there's free channels on the net (including several pornographic channels) that you can also watch for free. Movie channels, Documentary channels and such.

Well PC is leading - for natural reasons.

I recently came across a study which suggest that the lower your IQ is the more favorable consoles are.
