Yeah, not to sound like an ungrateful prick but i don't think I've ever gotten something i asked for or something i wanted for my birthday or Christmas. My relatives always think they know exactly what to get me and insist that i need it or that i will love it, even though half of the stuff I've given away or never touched, but that's not the part i hate. A gift is a gift and i will always accept it graciously but it bothers me when they get upset when i spend my money on something i wanted.

As a fellow Doctor Who fan I'll say this, If you always try to make something relative to your fandom, then it's going to cause people who would may have otherwise liked it hate it before they even get a chance to judge it fairly.

I was literally gonna say the same thing but I was gonna be a lot more mean, butt-hurty about it.

Good job explaining this peacefully/nicely. Made me self reflect and hate myself for the rage filled comment I was gonna post.

But **************** these whovians are becoming the most annoying fandom, and the Doctor Who show deserves better than that.

The X-Box and the Kinect are like Theodren and Wormtongue.

You: "X-Box, on!"

Kinect"They wish to turn you off, my lord."

X-Box "Are you sure you want to turn me off?"

You: "No!"

Kinect: "They say yes, sir."

X-Box: "Very well!" *turns off*

"i like its features, controller and games"
But compared to the pc, even if you combined the libraries of all the new consoles, they have none. Why not just buy a controller, software that lets you do voice commands and get windows8? It would practically be the same thing.

Why do pc gamers have to be the biggest assholes out of the whole gaming community? Seriously. I see more people spamming PC GAMING MASTER RACE and other similar **** on every single console post (or video game post in general) than any console gamer. The console fanboys have died down and started learning to appreciate the ups and downs of both consoles, how come you pc gamers in all your superiority can't do the same?
#182 to #142 - anon (12/20/2013) [-]
Because of the consoles, graphics have evolved very slowly.
Because of the consoles, we get ****** games (kids buy crap games without question). Games are developed for consoles first, and some are horribly optimized for pc's (looking at you GTAIV and Dark Souls). The consoles killed Crysis.
Do I even need to mention FIFA, NHL, NBA and every other repetitive title?
Hell, consoles killed modding; very few games have actual mod tools released, all because developers got used to the console morons buying dlc's instead of letting the community make the dlc for free.

Enough reasons to hate consoles?

User avatar #112 to #109 - improbablyyourdad (12/20/2013) [-]
Because people shouldn't be buying over priced pieces of **** just because their "friends" are, especially when for that price you and your friends could upgrade to a pc.

I love my 360 and all the old consoles I used to have but I think its time consoles as a whole die off for the greater good, especially when now they've been turned into ad machines and pay2play ******** .

User avatar #116 to #112 - damping (12/20/2013) [-]
Please point me to a good gaming PC that I can buy for $500 dollars. Can't? Then you are full of **** . Consoles are not in the slightest overpriced. The companies actually lose money on them in the hopes they make it back with game sales.

I have done plenty of PC gaming in my day. I played WoW up to WotLK, played a lot of the total war series, and a ton of Civilization, but I like to play sports games (Fifa, Nba 2k, and NCAA football) with my friends. The convenience of a $500 console in a dorm room that you and three other friends can play completely trounces a PC.

What ads? And please name a Play to Pay game on Xbox because I can name a ton on the PC.
#122 to #116 - improbablyyourdad (12/20/2013) [-]
This list is a bit dated, you could probably do better now that it's been awhile.
I was talking about xbox live and psn+. You now have to pay for them to use online.

I can't deny this but it isn't that hard to setup an LAN party, also if you think the $500 price tag is justified by a little convenience and a few rehashed sports games, you're crazy.

The ad stuff I was talking about.

I actually don't care if i get anything for christmas. I'm the person that gets joy out of seeing others happy with what i got them. I will never forget the christmas of 2011 with my boyfriend. See, with how i give gifts to people, i listen to things they talk about wanting or have mentioned before waaaaaay early in the year.

>Boyfriend has really been wanting to play zelda back in early may
>mentioned once that he wished he had ocarina of time
>months go by and it's getting closer to christmas
>I had actually already bought the game for him
>He starts getting the idea that he'll buy the virtual console of it on the wii
>manage to talk him out of it without him getting suspicious as to why
>he aks me what i got him for xmas
>"you have to guess or wait!"
>he guesses something for gameboy color and i just roll with it to throw him off guard
>he ends up guessing pokemon blue
>i say yes and act disappointed because he guessed "right"
>christmas time
>i give him his present, and he has this grin on his face like he already knew what he was getting
>that ultimate surprised look he had when "Ocarina of time" was revealed

man, i wish i had recorded it. That is one of my favorite memories. I have a similar plan this year, he definitely wont see it coming

If you were married you would know woman are the boss or else you dont sex...
#64 to #57 - comradvlad ONLINE (12/19/2013) [-]
If you were a man and had a backbone you would know that women need sex as much as men, especially if the male in the relationship knows what he is doing.

If you had a brain you would not marry a woman who stopped banging you because you spent your own money on something you wanted.

If you had an appropriate picture of what a married relationship should be like instead of a stereotypical picture brought to you by fellow betas you would have an xbox one, your manhood, and a wife who would not be bothered by such trivial **** .

To everyone who is going to say he should have gotten a PC:

First of all, he would have to either pick up a PC that was already build (which for $500 probably would not be as good as an xbox one or ps4) or buy all the separate components and then try to explain to his wife how he won a PC that wasn't built yet. Also, if he got a new pc it would have become a "family" PC, I'm sure his wife would want to use it to browse the internet. However, if his wife isn't interested in video games she wouldn't use the xbox, so he could use it whenever he wanted.

I need this 2000$ PC.... for work
#12 to #10 - epicscorpion (12/19/2013) [-]
>not as good as an xboxone or ps4

Every console is obsolete before it even launches, with already outdated hardware.
User avatar #33 to #12 - xdeathspawnx (12/19/2013) [-]
You could build one yourself for $500 that could run games as fast or even better than the PS4 or xbox, but the average $500 dollar prebuilt PC sitting on the shelf at Best Buy would not. However, If he wanted to build a PC himself he would have to explain to his wife how he won an unbuilt PC in a contest at work that he now has to put together, which is a lot harder than explaining that he won an xbox.

I play the majority of games on my PC and will probably never buy a PS4 of Xbox one, but I understand that just because a certain way of gaming fits someone's circumstances better does not mean that it is superior to all others and will fit everybody's circumstances better. To some people ease of access and more exclusives are more important than higher graphics settings or mods.
User avatar #56 to #33 - picklemanatee (12/19/2013) [-]
Better games on consoles.
#52 to #33 - fourtitwo (12/19/2013) [-]
Actually, I've looked into it a bit .__. a 500$ PC wouldn't be as fast as an xbone or ps4 :b Suppose those are the benefits of mass producing hardware.
I'm also a pc-person, don't get me wrong, and a 700$ PC might be way superior to a console. Just save a few bucks extra for an especially nice graphics card, or more than one even, and you'll be golden

#17 to #15 - epicscorpion (12/19/2013) [-]
PCs have no set hardware, and no release date. A console releases on a set date, and only recieves nominal storage upgrades every few years. You are stuck with the same RAM, graphics card, and motherboard until the next generation. A PC, on the other hand, has its hardware readily known on the box, always gets upgraded at the factory, and you can upgrade it yourself. It doesn't make consoles bad, but that is a terribly misguided statement to make.

User avatar #140 - cookiel (12/20/2013) [-]
Ok so aside from everyone bitching about which console is better, I'm only going with the Xbox One for two reasons.
1: The controller. I honestly can't play a fps with a PlayStation controller.
2: Halo. Don't really care about any other console specific titles.

I will say that I have nothing against PlayStation, I had one growing up but just prefer Xbox over it. Video games are video games and if you can't understand that then just go **** off.
User avatar #165 to #140 - wethepixel (12/20/2013) [-]
This. The 360 controllers were already good, they fit in your hands so much better than playstation. Then along comes the ******* xbone controllers. Holy **** they're just so nice.
User avatar #220 to #165 - cookiel (12/21/2013) [-]
I have yet to hold either but the main factor for me is joystick location. I just can't have my thumbs right next to each other, it feels wrong when playing a shooter
User avatar #172 to #165 - rockamekishiko ONLINE (12/20/2013) [-]
i got my hands on one at walmart and i think the 360s one were better. the new one seems cheap and i have to move my hands to touch the lb. Have you tried the ps4 one? feels very sturdy and feels good.
User avatar #173 to #172 - wethepixel (12/20/2013) [-]
Have you just held the xbone controller or actually used it? The vibrations and **** in it are just amazing, feels so good.
Have held a ps4 one, still just isn't right. They're too small.
User avatar #174 to #173 - rockamekishiko ONLINE (12/20/2013) [-]
i played a few demos. I ton't think the ps4 are small, in fact the xbox one seems smaller. the joystiqs on the x1 look really tiny and flimsy.
User avatar #175 to #174 - wethepixel (12/20/2013) [-]
Well that's just like your opinion man, my hands must be bigger or something, idk.
The "joystiqs" on the xbone took a bit to get used to, they are strange I'll give you that, but move a lot smoother and feel better with the grip type stuff on them I reckon.
I dunno, I guess it's all just personal preference with the controllers along with the consoles themselves.

#188 to #140 - glaciel (12/20/2013) [-]
I concur. This is exactly how I feel about the whole thing as well. The controller and games. I'll still be trying to get PS4 somewhere along the line, just for exclusives.

Also a thing to note: XBone is in a way more innovative than PS4 by introducing Kinect as a standard. Sure it still may not work perfectly, but as it is now a standard piece of equipment, game developers have more freedom of choice when developing. They no longer have to consider whether the audience will or won't have kinect. This I hope will lead to much more interactive and interesting games.

It's best not to have console wars nowadays when we know that the next generation of consoles could well be totally cloud-based, which would be **** considering people like me prefer to have hard copies of things and honestly couldn't care about storing everything I own and buy in the "cloud". There is absolutely nothing wrong with hard drives and discs. It's all a big trick to stop you from physically owning something all because of pathetic piracy and copyright laws some people break. Just thank **** Sony, Nintendo and Microsoft didn't make this compulsory this year otherwise it wouldn't just be the consumer suffering, it'd be other businesses too
