  1. Online gaming can't be free so all the ones that says it should be free they can pay for all those servers and shit so it can be free how bout that

  2. He has too put that steam trash on there 😆

  3. I'm 43 and I play a lot of video games, and the only one I play on PC is Star Trek Online.

  4. The reason why people use Controllers on PC because of Driving and Flight Simulators

  5. Listen gaming consoles are one of the best platforms to play on. Nobody reply if u don't agree. Cuz that would be a bad move. And extremely rude.

  6. Alot of players do complain about paying for stuff in games when they should be grateful that some games themselves are free to play while you'll pay to get extra stuff which is a fair deal.

  7. Yeah, paid online gaming on consoles is bad, but i would still pay for it, because of all the free games on ps plus

  8. The console myth that xbox players are having fun lol jk

  9. How exactly are console gamers supposed to be "filthy casuals"? They literally buy a new device to play games, unlike PC gamers who use the same device to play games that they use to type documents.

  10. I immediately checked out at the paying for online multiplayer argument. That is 100% stupid.

  11. I use controller on PC when I play games like Naruto storm 4 and DBZ kakarot

  12. lmao console sales are like only 5% off while steam sales are like mostly 50-80% off

  13. Any Gamer Who thinks that consuls are for kids is a straight up Moron and obviously doesn’t know what they’re talking about

  14. On consoles, free to play games can play online without a subscription, if you don't want to pay for it

  15. That last one about 60 fps, I've been playing consoles for most of my life and recently have been getting into pc. One of the benefits (as I thought) would be higher framerates. Well as it turns out, there's far more games than the internet would lead you to think, that run at 60fps even on the 360/ps3. Granted 90% are fps games, but still this argument doesn't hold up well especially not now where 60fps is becoming standard with more powerful consoles.

  16. do those elitists also play racing games with mouse and keyboard? if one can't afford a several thousand € sim rig and has to decide gamepad or mouse and keyboard, the decision is simple. a gamepad with any kind of analogue inputs is better. try driving your car with a "digital" foot, so either full throttle or no throttle, and either no brakes or pushing the pedal through the floor. would be a rather unpleasant experience in daily traffic, not even speaking of a race environment.

  17. 10 – Agree, there are options for cheaper games. Less common, as you said, but it happens.

    9- Controllers are fine in some games. I use controllers for racers. Mouse for most other things. It doesn't come down to which is more fun, but which is actually more ideal to use. Fun comes from the controls being intuitive enough to not have to think about them. But being able to CHOOSE, is the important part.

    8- Porting to console is easier. Not easier, not easy. Only having to optimize for specific hardware is a lot easier. PCs have a long list of hardware settups (Almost infinite) which makes optimization for it very difficult. The difficulty porting to console comes from trying to make it run, this is more notable near the end of a consoles life (Cyberpunk)

    7- Yes, stupid, agree with you.

    6- Yes this is ridiculous, of course it does have a community.

    5- You can't or shouldn't…. eh, I'd say it's more that there just aren't many options. Lack of options is nearly always a downside.

    4- Totally disagree. And I think there is no way to argue your point without sounding stupid. You don't get ANYTHING for your money. You pay money for the benefit of being able to pay more money, that's it. No benefits whatsoever.

    3- Yeh, this is dumb. People play for different reason and it's ridiculous to judge others on why they play.
    2- This is so true though. They don't want to release two radically different games, so having the restriction of needing to make it run on the outdated system holds it back. This is true even for new consoles, when they want to support the old console. Your argument completely relies on saying that console gamers would not buy a PC to game if consoles didn't exist, which is irrational.
    1- This is true… Sure, a few games can run at 60 FPS. But standard screen refresh rate 144hz… So it's still not a good framerate.

  18. I've had multiple and have built multiple pcs over the years, but ive also always had a Playstation and some games that are available on both platforms I still play on console not because they run better or anything but the nostalgia, like any gta 3d games, crash bandicoot spyro, thps, just some example tbh I like building pcs but for the most part I don't use them as much as consoles as I get older and have kids I play more casually and it's easier to just sit on the couch and start up a Playstation

  19. I think ps plus is like $6 a month if you buy the largest one, like the more months you buy the cheaper it is, not by much but I think 12 months is like 60 bucks

  20. you CAN actualy hold a controller and smoke, it just takes practice
    try holding it sideways

  21. pc gaming just has a really douchy following. No one likes anyone that just acta like theyre better than everyone. Especially over videogames. If acting like an asshole about your PC makes you feel tough, then I doubt you're very tough at all.

  22. Warframe is better with a controller, prove me wrong

  23. Thank you for making your points as cynical as possible. People that believe random garbage without verifying the legitimacy of the claim should be shit on at every opportunity.

  24. Most rts games are made for pc but hallo wars has proven that they can be great on console

  25. "Console games dont run at 60 fps"
    Xbox series x with 120fps:am i a joke to you?

  26. console gamers get steam like sales all the time…. just gotta find the used games stores that arent Gamestop

  27. Console gamers are "filthy casuals" ?! When The Fu@# did that happened?!

  28. going to touch on the Pc-Game contrler I switch between the two for different games =P but it's true tho Pc Master Race >XP Trolls will be trolls but there are some toxic peps out there who need to chill.

  29. It's amazing how this video has 25K likes.

  30. Whatever you wanna play video games on is your choice but don’t start off as a party pooper and tell everyone a specific console is better than the others. Like no one cares, just play the video game for Christ sake.

  31. So you pay to sometimes play on p2p servers, have the servers be closed some years later anyway, have hackers and a lot of times no cross platform?

  32. You know one big reason to use a controller besides liking it?
    Have you ever tried to play in the couch or in a relaxed position with a mouse and keyboard? Yea good luck with that (I really wish controllers would not hurt my hands in the ling term though)

  33. Imagine paying again to play a game you paid $100 just to play online

  34. The pros and cons don't matter.
    What matters is when the cons outweigh the pros.

  35. My first Console was a Sega Genesis. Still have it and the games. Then I went to PC-played Tom Raider, Myst and Riven, Realms of the Haunting, Blade Runner amd some other games, in fact I've still got Half-Life and Hal Life 2 plus the various Mods for it. However, I need my PC for my Photography and Artwork-games tend to take a lot of space and, if it causes a problem, any work I might be doing At-the-same-time might get messed up [[like right now I have Photoshop and Gimp open under this window while taking a break working on Images. Hence the Consoles I also own.

  36. WOW! You don't mentioned the most common. "A Gaming PC is cheeper than a console" or "you can make a PC than runs games much better than consoles with 400dls"
    I dunno why this still being said. Just a Graphic Card cost almost the same than a PS5

  37. Controllers are fun cause you can sit back and relax and you lean when using Mouse & Keyboard so yeah…..

  38. "they play at 60 fps at 1080p, so eh." love it!

  39. Xbox gets new deals basically every 1 and a half weeks

  40. Only real chads have a xbox PlayStation controller hybrid. 😎🥵

  41. This video is why I don't watch any of your other videos anymore. Glad you exposed yourself so I know who's worth watching on YT
