Platform never mattered to me much (I do prefer keyboard/mouse). To me the ONLY significant question is will the platform be able to decently handle the game(s) I really want to play?
I use whatever input device works best for me in a game. Heck some games I use both, like GTA drive around with controller, on foot use m/kb.
Proof or GTFO. PC gamers are mature, adult-like and can afford to pay the entry cost of a real man's gaming experience. That video has to be fake. My brethren would not act like that. Oh wait...that was counter strike? That game gets 200fps running on integrated graphics. NM its probably real.
many console games now have multi-gigabyte patches...so you won't necessarily be escaping massive downloads.
ATPCG will be still be here should you decide to return to the fold of the master race
The point on the PC is that people can create and manage community servers, admin them and set their own rules and mods. So yes when you join an unmoderated public server you'll get children shouting, if you join a community server with admins you'll have a nice experience. Outside of clan matches and private matches on the console this basically doesn't exist.
Patches are huge these days and OS updates are frequent, gone is the day of console games which were just plug in a disc and play. Oh and consoles aren't easier to connect to the TV, I have both my PS3 and my PC connected to my entertainment system by a single HDMI cable.Console is just a pc that's easier to connect to your tv. You'll run into the same issues with game sizes, patches, etc.
The PC has a massive market for controllers, probably much bigger than the consoles, even the console controllers work on PC, where as the opposite is not true.
Yeah, that is the downside of easily ported console games. People like me make it worse, I won't buy a non-RTS game nowadays that doesn't have full controller support.Unless you suck at using a controller. Then it's sort of a downer when so many games are optimized for them.
That isn't a completely fair argument. Even though the PS4 is basically a PC, thanks to a lack of optimizations for PC sometimes you need 50%+ more raw power just to get the same experience console gamers get. Hopefully Directx 12 will close this gap, but for now it is hard to match an optimized console game.You know if you're buying the latest and greatest hardware like 7800Ti's and Titans and all you consider the result to be is "more shiney" then maybe it's just easier to not buy that level of kit and simply buy a $150 GPU like the ones in the consoles? It's such a silly argument.
There are some custom settings sure, but there are also examples of optimizations PCs don't get. Like how the 2013 Tomb Raider has TressFX hair via async.Actually thats not so true
PS4 games are running on tv you are sitting further away so imperfections are less obvious
Hook it up to your PC monitor and you will see the real differences
Barely any AA/AF on console
Often much more LOD pop in
And a custom mix of settings that usually just isnt available on PC.
Like the PS4 level of grass on GTA5 is somewhere between High and Very High on PC. Itd be nice if the PS4 setting was available because it looks practically as good as Very High just with more aggressive LOD.
I spent a few hours picking through the exclusive titles and there were few that are actually interesting.Usually people like that are just looking for attention. What else is a PC forum going to help with for a guy moving to consoles. If he wanted helpful advice he would have went to the console forum.
