2. A person who plays video games on a computer. Prefers PCs to Xbox/Playstation for reasons like stable controls, RTS games, and more control keys.
They also claim this despite the fact that PCs generally have fewer exclusives, smaller screens, higher costs, as well as having both glitchier and delayed versions of games that are available on multiple platforms.
Most PC "gamers" are actually just tech enthusiasts, not gamers, as they don't actually care about games, only about their rig.
Actual Gamer: Cool. What's the gameplay like?
PC Gamer: Game what?
Actual Gamer: Ugh, another PC "gamer".
One can usually find them on youtube in the comment sections of cross-platform game video's, bashing consoles because they have nothing better to do.
PS3 Gamer: "Yeah, well, i'd rather just lean back on the couch, relaxing while playing a match of BF3 rather than spend over 9000 bucks to have slightly better performace and trying to be the best there's ever been.
Take it easy dude!"
Consolers don't play PC because:
-don't like to sit close up on a desk
-games only look "slightly" better
-PC Gaming is too difficult to learn from a technical standpoint
-A GREAT PC only costs $800-900, MAYBE $1,000, and a more than adequate one can be as cheap as $600
-You can hook up gamepads and large HDTVS to your PC in the living room, its called a "home theater gaming PC" if you want to play on a couch
-Games can run at more than twice the resolution, contain more content, be cheaper, have free mods (user-made DLC) content, run at much better framerates, and have larger multiplayer matches with free multiplayer service.
-maintaining a non-custom gaming PC is NO MORE DIFFICULT than upkeeping the non-gaming computer you are using to view this site.
PC Gamer:" you have obviously never played Crysis 1 on max PC Graphics, or BF3, or ARMA 2"
12 year old console fanatic: "GTFO lifeless PC fag fuck you and your mother die of AIDS!!"
PC Gamer:"Fuck you I play PC, and I'm a PC Gamer, screw you if you are gonna be a child about it!"
