Why do none of you idiots understand sarcasm?

You can bad mouth MaxPC all you want, but if you need a [joke] or [sarcasm] or [we're not serious about this part] tag on an article just so you can understand when someone's not being 100% literal, then...

YOU, SIR, ARE THE FUCKTARD.

 

Please think before you comment.

Of course it was sarcasm. Didn't the EXTREME USE OF CAPS kind of imply that? Nonetheless, thanks for sticking up for me, nduanetesh and whoever else stood up for me. (I'd thank you by name, but Max PC's commenting system only displays the name of the person you're replying to.)

Wow I can't believe this guy is preaching the death/inferiority of PCs compared to Consoles not once, but twice in this article.

Epic says: "Version 4 will exclusively target the next-gen consoles... PCs will follow after that"

This guy says: "In Epic's eyes, the PC is a square, old third-wheel -- no longer cool
enough to stand on equal footing with the youngsters Microsoft and Sony
are popping out. Will the next-next gen be a console exclusive?

Wtf? What happened there? Did you just leap to a ridiculous conclusion routed in either a lack of understanding of the insane popularity of the unreal engine on the PC or did you not understand the context of his adverb 'exclusively'

 

And then the second blurb which links to an article which supports not the death of PC gaming, but of the continued success of companies like blizzard. I don't know whether you regularly use really convincing sarcasm in your article, but I hope thats what it was, and not your actual opinion.

 

I hate flaming but this is the one website I never want to hear anybody spouting the ridiculous myth of the "death of pc gaming"

 Its called maximum PC, not maximum console fanboy service, so please, in the future, try post informed opinions.

I think Nathan was just trying to highlight how rediculous it is for a company to take steps that show it obviously undervalues the PC gaming market in comarison to consoles...and he used Gabe's comments from that second article to reinforce that.  He was right for calling a dog a dog when it comes to Epic's decision, and the other quote said it best: "Is PC gaming dead?  Ask Blizzard!".

While MaxPC contributors and interns may be a little skittish, malnourished, and suffer from low self esteem and Helsinki Syndrome, they're not stupid (rule of thumb, anyway)...they wouldn't even dream of trying to slip some actual anti-PC-gaming rhetoric into the articles they submit/post.

the reason why so many people think PC gaming is dead is because you can see numbers for XB360, you can see numbers for PS3 but you can't see numbers for PC. PC is an open format, no company owns it, many people build there own computers and it's impossible to calculate how many people play on them. One thing you can look at is games like HL2, which sold better PC or console? CS? UT3? PC is bthe greatest and cheapest gaming platform as long as it remains an open platform free from greedy corporations who want to ripoff developers.

the truth is that if pc gaming ever did "die" (and I think it's obvious that it's still far from that), it would still take me 3 years or so to get through all the backlog of games I've been waiting to have time to play

What I really don't get, and what ticks me the hell off, is why all these companies are jumping to hit the consoles first. Why are all these games being released onto consoles prior to being released on PC? Us PC users are very loyal, and must of us have been gaming there long before we could afford our own consoles, or something other than the family computer. Why not reward our loyalty and keep bringing it to the PC fairly? I just don't understand. If someone knows what's up, please inform me. Thanks.

Because tard companys like Maximumpc.com now spread shit like this. That pc gaming is infact dying when it is stronger now than it has ever been. I am waiting till those patents take out the consoles now.

SHUT THE FUCK up with this fucking pc gaming is dead, its fucking retarded, seriously.

avatar

Vahn16

It was a joke. I know that PC gaming isn't dead, and fully believe that consoles will die out long before PC gaming ever does.

avatar

Digital-Storm

Alright, if you could, would you please put something like (Joke) in there.

willsmith

Surely you jest.

Yeah, PC Gaming is really dead:

Stats from ETQW's site:

329,975 PC Accounts

82,539 Xbox 360 Accounts

31,280 PS3 Accounts

Now, fair enough the PC version has been out longer, but if PC Gaming was "dead" wouldn't the console numbers dwarf the PC version? Even both consoles together come no where near PC figures..
