Why is PC considered the master race? What does it exactly do better than consoles? Can someone explain.
>games cost less
>better chats and interaction with others
>can use a controller if you wish (but mouse and keyboard is always better)
>mulitple monitor support
>can download pr0n and do work on it too
TLDR; youre a stupid fag if you need it to be explained to you
It does everything better. Also, play a PC game from 2001 on a modern PC and then play a console game from 2001. Thanks to being able to max out graphics and performance (including beyond original intended limits) old games hold up much better years later on PC.
It runs games at better fps and at higher graphics quality than consoles.
Its also customisable and you dont have to pay to play online.
There is also a shit load of games for it.
There are also a lot more reasons why its the best platform but it suffers from one major issue, being that if you play on PC other people thibk you're a nerd virgin fag.
Also doesnt have to be a chunky thing like in your pic OP. I build a low profile gaming pc for £350. Just boot it in media mode and switch onthe tv if I wanna watch shows and movies. More storage too
PC Is For Richfags
God damn, are people really this STUPID?
You can easily play with a traditional gaming controller on a PC if you so desire.
Another reason why PC is the master race, the options are leaps and bounds above consoles.
Literally all home console's have over PC is their exclusives, and that's it, and they are the worse this generation than they've ever been.
pc's are way more powerfull and if u like console becuz of the controller u can attatch a xbox one or an ps4 controller to u pc the grapics are better less lag more games mods it willl pay itself back cuz most things are less expancive for pc
Honestly some games are better on console. I mean even if it looks like shit compaired to pc, the controls can somewhat be better on SOME games. Plus most of my friends are faggots and spent their money on xbones and ps4s
I like PC gaming, cause it's not like you'll fall into a coma or something...
watch porn at 8k 144hz on ultra settings, why do you come to /b with these questions? go to /g with this you silly willy
Just overall better because you can buy better parts. Which gives a better gaming experience.
It's not cheaper, but in exchange we have Steam. And Steam can have VERY good deals on the games you want. So it equals out.
This is now a Pc masterrace thread. Post what you got!
>16 gb ram
All in a laptop
Hm, implying its running even on medium half-the resolution on ps4. Double the price for quadruple the performance.
Ive seen many ~400€ PCs outperform all consoles in every way, i don't really see a reason for getting a console this day and age.
if you have dual monitors you can watch pr0n or surf the web while playing your games
like anon said you can use a console controller
it's also easier to use the internet or watch shit than using your xbone or ps4
Hm yes.. Exclusives...
We can tell you're either black or a consolefag since You Type Like This
yes, i can play everygame on ultra, also, i dont have to play for single player games like you because i can just torrent them.
you end up spending enough money on a console buying games, might as well get a pc
Some one explain to me why I should pay £500 to play DOOM at a better resolution and frame rate when I can play the game (perfectly fine at 60 FPS) for £200? It's like saying that you can't enjoy GTA San Andreas because it doesn't look amazing or play at 90 FPS or whatever it has to be
>inb4 lol salty?, aha you can't afford a pc
No I'm not salty and yes I could afford a pc if I wanted to but I'd rather get a ps4 and a 40 inch tv than a mid range PC
Glad to have an actual internet connection aren't you.
90's would like to call us, but we're still reserving their line!
What I like about pc is the options. There are so many things you can do. I love being able to have 10 different controllers work on it no problem. Ps2/3, 360, GC, wiimote etc etc. It's great when people come over and have a controller preference.
I love the graphics and the frame rates. It's like playing a different game when you compare. I also love the mods for the same reason. It changes games completely whether it be graphically or gameplay wise.
I can go on and on. The ability to have options is what keeps me playing on pc. Also, having your own personal build feels great.
Not even that long, last time i checked there were big studio games -70 to -90% off
>lel can't afford console games poorfag
i used to be pc masterrace then i bought a ps4 and its serving me well
i mean fuck it, if i want to play i just plug it on. with pc its not so simple. you have to deal with annoying windows updates, plug in game controllers, deal with gfx settings in game. probably low frame rate when dealing with new games because of shitty coding
in theory pc is always better but ps4 is more practical
>Playing with a mouse > controller.
Most people play with a controller on pc no difference.
>Graphics > consoles
Yes but the gap keeps getting smaller, game informer says the next generation of consoles will close the gap.
>Modding > consoles
Yes, but with the work Microsoft and Bethesda are doing, modding will soon be as much a part of consoles. Sony also has a modding program in the works
>Overclocking > consoles
Doesn't matter unless your system is older than time
>4k gaming > consoles
Hate to keep quoting game informer but 4k gaming is just around the corner for consoles, I've already got a 4k TV in preparation.
>Everything > consoles
For now, soon everyone will be on console because of ease of use. The reason people prefer pc is because it is ahead of the trend and it's update able for the future but after consoles catch up and it's cheaper to buy a new console rather than update your pc specs. Things will change. Even steam is almost dropping the rest of its work for its vr project being that it will be the longest for console to adapt to unless Microsoft just goes fucking ham and that company delays to much so I'm not counting on it.
>Salted edgeLord response incoming
>annoying windows updates, plug in game controllers, deal with gfx settings in game. probably low frame rate when dealing with new games because of shitty coding
I haven't really encountered these issues often. Windows updates are infrequent, game controllers are easy to set up(in the unlikely event that they are more suited to a game than a mouse and keyboard), graphics settings in game take like a minute to change, and the low frame rate argument isn't accurate either.
This. It's better when everyone comes over. Playing local coop games on a pc hooked up to a 120 projector screen is the best. It's fun to play heavily modded 2k, rocket league or project kapedani with friends over.

Youre barely even getting to fullHD? Can't imagine four times higher any time sooner than another decade.
Just cause it's PC doesn't mean you don't have to exclude using a controller
Xbone controller with wireless adapter
Logitech cheap wired controller
360 controller wired or wireless w/ adaptor
Bluetooth PS4 controller using thrid party to use with steam

>What does it exactly do better than consoles?
you can mod your games better
You can be as sarcastic as you want, you aren't rustling anyone jimmies by doing it.
You can always fall back to the "lol pc nerds dont have friends, me and my buddies play splitscreen and suck each other off afterwards" argument.
Can you use your console like a PC?
If not, then add your existing PC to your console's price tag.
The gap between console graphics and pc graphics will always be a big one. Just think about it, one graphics card alone is half the size of any console. The console has to compromise on performance to keep things affordable and compact.
When the Scorpio comes out, there will be a 200 dollar gpu that trumps it by then. I also don't fully believe Microsofts claims until it is proven. The Scorpio will be powerful but will it be as powerful as they say?
>Most people play with a controller on pc no difference.
Most? Not by a long shot. Out of the 8-10 other pc players I know, the only game any of them uses a control for is dark souls. Nice to have more choice though.
>Yes but the gap keeps getting smaller, game informer says the next generation of consoles will close the gap.
How? New PC parts come out every year, and consoles are out dated on release. There is no magic console juice, the fact is pc has CHOICE of hardware and a user can upgrade at any time.
>Yes, but with the work Microsoft and Bethesda are doing, modding will soon be as much a part of consoles. Sony also has a modding program in the works
These programs are going to ruin modding, im calling it.
>Hate to keep quoting game informer but 4k gaming is just around the corner for consoles, I've already got a 4k TV in preparation.
Upscaled shit, not actual 4k. PS4 is barely getting 1080p with 30fps.
Salted edgelords, called it. Yeah there's no point in saying console is better than pc right now, I'm just pointing out the change in the wind. This time a decade from now all the "pc master race" will have is league of legends. And they fear it.
>me, tl;dr, didn't read the rest. someone already cover this, good for you mate.
anything you invest as a gaming machine is also a solid anything else machine. whether your shit is editing, or graphic design, or databases, virtual networking, or whatever, it all needs a solid computer.
of which, you already have if you are pc master race. not so much re consoles.
If someone just admits they prefer console because fuck it its just easier, fair enough.
But to claim that consoles will ever be better than a custom collection of more modern and powerful hardware is just...fuckery.
Console defenders seem convinced that sony/microsoft have some kind of weird magic powers, and obviously no idea how hardware works.
In general, the first toy seems very interesting. But in the future quickly tired of the lack of diversity. I can not advise to play it, but the taste and color of comrades there. Who will explain why.
1. First and foremost, probably minus in the game - the standard plot. To describe it, I will not, for those who are interested - Will play will understand what I mean. The storyline does not cling, do not have enough of its disclosure and understandable narrative scheme, which is why the game is lost meaning and the essence of our actions.
2. Graphics. Yes, I do not argue, in the gaming industry to sin zhalvatsya graphics in a computer game, but it's just a nightmare. Guys, even in Serios Sam schedule was better, seriously.
3. The same type of combat system. Oh, this is generally a separate topic. Where have you seen a blunt poking the mouse button? Your gerogy will produce the same attack, no matter where your opponent to what he outfit, its growth, and so on.
4. Gameplay. In general, what can be said about the gameplay ... He is not. And it did not exist. Maps are based on the same scheme, the world is boring and monotonous.
And finally, 5. Artificial Intelligence. Guys, local AI is so stupid that, I'm sorry of course, children 4 years of age are smarter than NPC here.
So, what I say Mogo. Ten criteria.
1. Theme. -
2. Gameplay. -
3. Artificial Intelligence. -
4. World. -
5. Graphics. -
6. Musical arrangement (the only thing that I somehow liked it). +
7. Interest. -
8. playability. -
9. To kill time. +
10. Spend money on something worthwhile. -
Yea, I never understood what people meant by console is easier. Like, do people not use computers? I find it hard to believe there's people out there that have computers and not know how to use them.
This argument has been going on since I got my PS1 - and the gap between my gaming PC and PS4 is still a mile wide. The change in the wind has been coming since forever and it's only the console peeps who keep going on about it.
The graphics gap will close because even if there was something more graphically dense than 4k the human eye couldn't perceive the difference. Sure pc companies could come up with 5k or whatever you want but there would be no point in it.
Well yeah but PC already has 4k and consoles will be a decade getting there.
>Throwback to 'this will be in 60fps'
>Throwback to 'this will be in 1080p'
>2 years ago
>Still hasn't happened
You've never seen a 5k monitor before have you?
You have changed my life, I now leave /b/ forever in shame. And to think an argument where you exist only as a line of letters on a screen could be taken lightly. Oh how wrong I was, for I have been stripped of my honor and sense of self. How could I ever lead such a petty and low life, you sir are an angel and my soul thanks you for its last chance at salvation.
> Some people use controllers,
No good gamer does this for good/competitive games. But it does highlight that you CAN use a controller OR a mouse for PC = PCMasterRAce
> Hur dur the gap is getting smaller,
VR on PCs.... PCs by their nature are easier to make software and hardware, the same "gap getting smaller" was said 10 years ago, it was bullshit then, its bullshit now. PCs will ALWAYS have better graphics until we get to holodeck levels. = PCMasterRace
> Modding will be available for some games, made to be idiot friendly, at somepoint, in the future, with some companies
Some of the popular games are made from mods, PCs will always have better, and more, skilled modders. = PCMasterRace
> In the future consoles wont suck as much, in the future consoles will be better,
Above, wasn't true 10 years ago, isn't true now, wont be true in the future.
> In the future, if PCs don't get any upgrades and stay at this level, and consoles keep getting better, in just a handful of decades, consoles would be better, or at least equal outdated PCs.
Consoles now, are not as good as older Pcs, let alone current PCs, let alone GAMING PCS.
> in dur futcha! consoles wont such so much.
You're sad that consoles are for losers who cant play in the big boy league.
Why don't you just go back to your endless which console is less shit than the other one,
while the PCMasterRace just get on with being the master race.
I never thought of that actually. It's interesting to guess what the future has in store for everything. 4k already looks great and 8k is quite a lot better. I got to see a demo 8k panel at an event last year. But there will definitely be a point where we just can't progress much further.
Either way, since my field is mostly technology I'll tell you now that consoles won't be reaching smooth 4k gameplay for another decade or so.
What would be great though is if they gave consoles a lot more flexibility. Just a base console where you can upgrade it for more performance. Sorta like a steam machine I guess. If they keep creating locked down boxes, then it might take another 2 gets for 4k 60fps play.
lol if you dont understand youre retarded
> what does it do better?
Are you fucking kidding? Nowadays?
Please, anon. PC is now the go-to platform for local co-op gaming. Modern consoles have a paltry number of ACTUAL local co-op games anymore.
Consoles haven't had the crown for co-op gaming for quite some time now.
Bullshit. You only need to spend a few hundreds to have a good gaming PC, not much different from buying a console. People who spend thousands are graphic designers and shit like that.
The "gaming community" is pissing me off so hard with this console bullshit.
As long as you have competing systems, you'll have exclusive titles. That means either everyone has to buy every console out there to be able to play all the games, or people need to make sacrifices and accept that they can't play a game they want to, just because it's held back from their system.
We HAVE to agree on one system to be able to even become a "community", so why then would I choose a system that can't be upgraded and is neither upward nor downward compatible and doesn't have any other purpose to it than gaming (and admittedly a little youtube and netflix watching at least)?
Everytime this debate comes up it's only technicalities "better fps, better X, better Y" or people saying "Yo, stop h8in we are one".
No, fuck off, we aren't, obviously. All these niggers fall for the marketing scheme that is artificially creating the need to own multiple platforms and instead of everyone calling out the industry and stopping to buy their bullshit, they hate on eachother. It's making me fucking angry.
Nah, I think maybe 6-700 for a nice rig.
Simple i5 and 2-300 dollar gpu along with well matched components would be fine.
I ended up buying a second gtx 780 recently for 160 dollars flat. I feel like maybe I made a mistake but I needed some more performance to run certain graphics mods as well as continue to max out current titles with no frame dips. I can't max out tomb raider without my frames dropping to thr 50s and 40s.
>just lower the settings
I'm a graphics whore..
>350 for a PS4
And the (same) games are more expensive. Repairs basically means buying a new one. New generations of games won't work on your PS4 once the new one comes out. On top of that, you can buy a PC with the same graphics capabilities as a console for their retail price. You won't run newest games on max graphics, but consoles don't either. But continue to get ripped off while destroying the quality of games all the while, if you feel like it.
There are a lot of sexy girls, who play on the PC these days.
OP was bait, but the rest of this thread has a lot of really genuine responses from people who just do not understand.
Having an NES controller is worse than having a Dualshock because it has fewer buttons and can do less.
In the same way, having a console instead of having a PC will always, always be worse. Increased functionality will always be superior.
NOTE: IF YOU'RE NOT GOING TO USE THE EXTRA FUNCTIONALITY ANYWAY, GET A CONSOLE AND NEVER ENTER A DISCUSSION ABOUT THIS AGAIN.
Tldr console isnt bad, autistic kids are bad.
New and better hardware parts are released for computer, allowing upgrades to happen when needed or necessary. While you must wait for the newest version of your console to get better hardware. Also if your console breaks fuck you buy a whole new one.
Consoles arnt bad, just sub tier.
The real cancer is console fuck kids who will fight over PlayStation and Xbox when neither have even been confirmed by the company.
It's making fun of console peasants.
>Oh yea? Well show me how Hitler was a bad leader without bringing up
>destroyed image of the German people
>excruciating experiments on "patients" in concentration camps
>fight against free speech
You get the idea.
yes, I'm afraid I did. I just know myself that making it on my own would be beyond my capabilities. Still I am happy on it and I can run everything on max settings with great frames
Yea but I wont have to buy a new computer everytime a new generation of consoles comes out.
I spent like 800 bucks on this computer back before ps3s came out and it still runs every game I could want. When you factor in 3 generations of consoles (PS2, PS3 and PS4) and the 60 dollars you have to pay per game where most if not all the games I play are free. I think I made a good deal.
The steam controller is infinitely better at being a controller than console controllers as well. It is the perfect controller to emulate every game in existence with its happiness feedback pads and motion control support. Not to mention the paddles on the back and the programmability of holds changing the buttons through various combinations. Mines been running on 2aa batteries for 8 months and it's still full charge. It's cheaper than ps4 and Xbox controllers and more versatile and above all else, is exclusive to pc because you have to actually have a brain to wrap around the extreme customization that the steam controller provides.
what are you a mod? you should kill yourself
>endless catalog of games from previous generations, and most of the latest games, all completely free if you can use bittorrent
>mouse>controller for fps games
>you can use a controller if you wish
>you can mod your games, which means you get hundreds more hours out of that game
>less children shouting into their mic after bed time
Why can't we have both? Also the argument that
>Hurr durr I can play with my friends and you can't >hurr durr
Is irrelevant because PC can play with friends through steam and there are PC games that offer spiltscreen with the use of a controller/keybinding your keyboard to use different keys for different people.
P.C. is in my opinion better right now.
I have both because I love playing PC but I also like to play with my friends who can't afford high end pc's (No i'm not a richfag I just save my money)
This. Once I built my first rig I couldn't stop adding things and making it better. Easily spent probably close to 3k on parts and shit since 2012. It's just fun making custom builds and shit. (pretend the wiiUs not there)
So you'd think, try it.
It's cool dude, the pc masterrace accepts Nintendo as a separate but equal entity. We all have one.
I'm big into PC gaming, but depending on what you get can be very expensive. It's just personal preference. I barely play my PS4 or XBox, but when I do, it's usually a game that's exclusive, friends playing the same game on one of the consoles, or maybe stupidity, I don know. My favorite is the PC though.
The only exclusives that matter are Mario and Zelda and company.
I got more doodles I drew with my Note 3.
Say that to people with dual 980tis
i also have this dual 390x build
16 Gb Ram
16 Tb's worth of HDD's
2x R9-290 OC ( really need GPU upgrade the crossfire is just not worth it)
Modding games was the only reason I needed to build mine.
This is something that gets over looked in every single one of these threads and these types of arguments in general.
you can build a pc with better speecs than ps4/ xbox for less of the money.
Wii is the only console that con compete with pc. not on performance ofc but in gameplay and game tipes
At least Nintendo games run 60 fps, solid.
Reason being we don't have autism and don't aim at the peoples dicks instead of their heads
>Most people play with a controller on pc no difference.
This is only true for very few specific games, and nobody uses a controller competitively unless they're a consolefag, because for shooters, mouse control is objectively better than controller. However, this does point out that you DO have the option to play with a controller on PC, which is nice.
>Hurr durr gap
If the next console generation closes the gap, then the next generation of PC parts will reform that gap again.
>Consoles are getting mods
And those mods are going to be terrible, restricted, and only available for a few games.
>Overclocking is useless for anything but potatoes.
>4k is just around the corner for consoles.
top kek m8.
>Hurr durr easier to use
Not that much easier, and it's not like it's impossible for anyone but a master technician to build or maintain a PC, or get mods.
literally everything you faggot, games are made using pc. consoles are for young kiddos that go over to their friends houses to play games with them or some casual 9 to 5er faggots that play 1hr a day
>You dissagree with me
>You're just salty
also the mods will never be as good as pc because its easier to make mods on pc and you can make them fucking massive, with mods for xbone and ps4kids they are going to have limits on the mods you can get
>mfw pc will always come out on top
i mean I can surf the web, play games, do work.
Like I can join a group voice chat with my friends who are all playing different games and we can share internet links with each other. It's just an overall better work station. Have you ever tried to type a message with a controller? It's awful. the worst part is not all of your friends are on fucking xbox or ps4, but I can talk to my friends who are working or doing other things because they're on their computer. It's just a better platform for life.
What is the deal with you hardcore CPU overclocker retards? OCing your graphics card is fine, but OCing your CPU is such an incredible waste of time that could definitely be better spent gaming. If you CPU becomes the bottleneck, it's about time to buy yourself a new one anyway.
>Dark Souls is better with a mouse
That's not true at all. Most of gaming on pc is controlled by gpu the cpu only has to load the program into the memory from the hard drive. The cpu being over clocked has nothing to do with games and everything to do with unlocking full potential of the computer running automated tasks as well as multitasking.
What you niggers don't realize is that the closer consoles come to PC in performance, the closer they get to actually being a fucking PC. Look at the internals of the PS3 and PS4, they're both basically a PC with a different OS.
"Overclocking the CPU itself is more likely to help run advanced 3D-imaging programs, professional video editing apps, and similar software – the sort associated more with complex work projects than with online gaming."
I didn't realise that every single person on the planet that plays game voted on that list, amazing! I get where you are going with that, but "Top 100 games ever" is extremely objective, as with anything else.
