Reasons to hate PC gamers #1: L33TSPEAK



Just when gaming was starting to make inroads into the mainstream, a splinter group of stuck-up PC nerds started to pretend they had broken keyboards. Apparently too cool for the alphabet, they substituted letters for vague number-based substitutes in a two-fingered salute to grammar.

While it originated with computer hackers, Leetspeak quickly spread into the PC gaming community; making us all look like complete jackasses in the process. If you regularly pepper your online chat with ‘pwned’, ‘Noob’, ‘w00t’ and ‘Sux0r’ you’re part of the (gene pool) problem. Now rack off and die in a chemical fire. You shan't be missed.

This fool doesn't know where the best games started lol...

this article made me laugh so hard... i own quite a decent pc rig... and tweaking my bios settings takes 10-15 minutes tops. and more money than sense??... not true... just more money than console gamers... :P and in pc gaming we can do anything to the game, we can mod better texture, different buildings, characters, cars, almost anything you want a game probably has it. Console gaming just has 13 year old kids thinking their the best modders as their jtagging call of duty ranks.

Yes DOOM was this first ever fps and any fps is a copy of DOOM.Meaning Mirror's Edge,Killzone1,2 & 3,Borderlands,Half Life,Resistance,Halo,Far Cry1 & 2,Portal,Bioshock1 & 2,Wolfenstein,Team Fortress,Quake,COD(all of them),MOH(all of them),Battlefield(all of them)...etc are all copies of DOOM.Your argument has such a good basis.

@Garan

lol @ "They not getting any,so they'll die out eventually."

@"Yes DOOM was this first ever fps"
actually wolfenstein 3d was the first fps, and there were rpgs from first person views even long befor that.

You're kidding me. "leetspeak" is dead. Why is this a reason to hate PC gamers? Even console gamers use these terms in a mainstream fashion.

This whole article is a bunch of slandering rubbish. 10 shoddy points that are hardly applicable to the whole "PC gamers" entity as a whole.

And it's ironic how one of the reasons was "they're always complaining."

Take a look at the Black Ops forum for 360 or PS3.. or any hyped game that's come out recently. Nothing but 13 year old crybabies.

I don't get it. It's like someone forced these terrible writers at gunpoint to come up with 10 reasons to hate PC gamers in 10 seconds.

No

It appears the writer is saving for their $10,000 PC by making each "point" have its own individual page with adverts.
Nice going.
Also, point #1. How would you know to put that as an arguement point, if you couldn't read it? (Because obviously, the vast majority of high-voiced CoD players get laid on a daily basis)

Nope

LOL @ Console Peasants, they're jealous of our superiority. Keep crying faggots, your glorious PC overlords can't hear you with all the fun we're having playing GOOD games.

Hilarious and sadly true of many (not all) PC gamers. Most are elitist JO's that go out of their way to troll and spam the heck out of message boards with walls of useless self inflated text to tout their prowess (on the net that is, as most are spineless door mats in real life). To make matters worse far too many of them have hygiene problems and lack even the simplest form of "outside the basement" social skills. The MMORPG thing I just never understood. Those games suck, the game play and graphics are horrible and animation is stiff. Not to mention those games are usually devoid of any story or music to speak of, just a bunch of fat men dry humping their monitors over some poorly rendered female (who is likely controlled by another fat man) oh the irony.

@Nope,I have never read such a witty comment,you must be really intelligent,I bet all the girls are lining up to tell you how awesome you are,that is if they can stand your nerd rage induced stench.

Stupid and pointless article coming from a console gamer.

hmm....I am just wondering here... will this thread or, even better, any of these comments matter in 2 weeks?

...No? I didn't think so.

This article is all based on opinion or a method of satire. I got some laughs out of it :)

he missed the best reason to hate pc gamers......

they have everything better than you(console gamers) do

better graphics
better games
better prices
better controlls
better content
free maps
free mods
free games

Dear Mentally challenged author,

You should hate them because they ARE better than you....just like you hate rich people and famous people a little bit down deep inside yourself....also because you are poor and ugly and seldom get laid except when you can scrape up enough money to pay for it.

here is some proof that PC gaming SH!TS on console gaming;

look at the PC gamers get upset.

they're already ranting, rather than admitting to what we all know is the truth.

I own both PC and console for a long long time, since Atari and Commodore. This article was utter crap, distasteful and poorly written. It's console gamers like you that give the entire gaming genre a bad name.

It's ensured that I will never visit this site again -- the writer should follow his own words and rack off, die in a chemical fire so we don't have to hear your sad dribble again.

Haha

I'm sensing a lot of jealousy from the console kiddies.

tired

21

What the hell was #2 supposed to be? A computer case made out of a chick in bikini? Did it offend the author because it was not a black man with a giant penis instead?

Too stupid

22

The article's actually making fun of console players and their lack of sense, BUT I guess the joke went way over your heads

Heh

Trolls
Trolls everywhere

Pat d: "look at the PC gamers get upset.

Some tit just called every PC gamer in existence whiny, annoying douchebags based on ... well, based on f--k all.
But I'm sure console gamers would have taken it with a lot more grace, as is evidenced by your tactful approach to the topic.

Shsksh. Commander?

Pretty sure this is a troll article. I own every current gen console and a PC gaming built for under $600 that will play any game on high to max settings; including Crysis.

I'd just like to iterate this: you wrote this article on a PC. Whether you'd like to admit it or not, more people have PCs in their homes than televisions. The amount of work and money required to upgrade any PC to play games is a maximum of $300, on par with both the price of a PS3 and 360.

The way I see consoles are tools for social gaming on a much more light note. They've always been about split-screen multiplayer with some friends. Since my PC has always been the hub of my internet activity, that's where I have and will continue to handle online multiplayer.

The only thing that bothered me about this is your idea of PC gamers making everyone else look like nerds. Console children are constantly in feeble debates over who's what is better with which titles, and why Halo will never be beat by the vastly graphically superior Killzone. You guys make yourselves look like nerds without anyone's help. Meanwhile, I'll continue to expand my music collection, make music, art and play games (or even modify them with additional content (for free)) on my PC. I'll freely admit to being a nerd, but luckily I'm not so maladjusted that I blog about how much I hate people who play games on some other medium on the internet. Blogging, vlogging and all its forms will constantly be looked at with a raised eyebrow, even by nerds.

That should tell you something.

This is the most biased piece of crap I've ever seen.

Sweeping generalisations left and right, unfounded claims, blind ignorance. Actually, you should take up journalism in the USA, you'll fit right in.

okay. So, I have a gaming PC, PS3 and an Xbox. Sure, gaming pcs are a bit more expensive but they can do more than a console does. And each each setup is better at doing different things. I'd rather play a strategy game on a PC, as well as an FPS and an mmorpg. I'd rather play a third-person shooter, an action game or an RPG on a console.
Anyways, your arguments are both unbacked and offensive. Its like making an article about "10 reasons to hate blacks"

Wow, just wow...I saw nothing but ignorance through this entire article. I play console and PC (hybrid ftw) and wow...really? I have to say having a gaming PC gives a lot more freedom when it comes to all the games available to us to play, and the vast community of gamers in general. Do I consider a PC better? Yes, because it can be upgraded to suit one's needs later on to make everything better. I enjoy playing games, and if I want to play a game and my comp doesn't meet certain requirements, I'll upgrade (and no I won't spend $600 on a gfx card).

I currently own a PS3 and Wii (still thinking on an xbox), and they're fun to play, and it's fun deciding on what game to get when it comes to cross-platforming. I recently bought Need For Speed: Hot Pursuit for the PC, I could have got it for my wii, or my PS3, but no I got it for my PC. Why? I know a bunch of buddies who play the PC and have it, so it's a blast. Even the Assassin's Creed series, I got those on the PS3, cause I enjoyed the controls.

You hating on PC gamers is fine and dandy, as that is your opinion. But making up false reasons throughout the majority of this piece of garbage of an article, makes you naive, because you speak as if you lost some kind of tournament where you had to play a PC game and failed.

THEMAN

consoles don't make console games. pc makes the console games. if the developer wanted to they can port every piece of your precious console games to pc and make it prettier and loads faster. just remember where the first call of duty comes from.

Zesty

31

If you read properly you'll see its not PCs being complained about its PC gamers,what can't you read anything thats not l33t?

Softy

32

LOL, the irony of course is that if you bought a "next gen" system, you basically overpaid for a closed platform PC you can't upgrade, that's saddled with adware.

Don't hate, ascend.

"More money than sense." you mean "More money than you."

Funny article, looks like it brought a lot of attention to your site, 10/10 good troll.

Is the person who wrote this article retarded? You know that you can build a PC for $400 and it will still be superior to the 8th gen consoles. Also, this article is simply written to get more clicks because people who care about the PC gaming will voice their opinion. You know why? because we don't like when idiots like the author of this artcle spread lies like these. This website is ran by wanna-be 15year old gaming '' journalists'' who have no journalistic credibilty nor the gaming knowledge required to run the gaming news website.

Pc has some of the best games, if you knew what a DOS box is and had a 5.5 inch floppy bay, you where the most bad ass palying the original best story based game in the world
