When most people hear the words Pc Master race, they picture something like this :
However, that is not what it is. We do not judge you for playing on consoles. You are part of the Gaming community. We welcome you into the gaming community. We judge the console gaming community because they are worse consumers and decision makers. If you have fun on a console, then great, more power to you. However, there are several reasons why you should leave the console community and join the pc master race. We will be debunking some of the arguments that the console community throws at us at a regular basis.
Argument No.1 : Pc is way to expensive to get into.
This has been debunked so many times, but I keep hearing that argument. Pc is not exorbitantly expensive. I can put together a pc build for four hundred dollars that is in certified “console killer territory” :
This pc will play all games at medium settings and outperform consoles by a wide margin.
Argument No.2 : Consoles are plug and play
Please kill me now. Pc’s are easy to build (tutorial) and can be done in just two hours. While picking the parts may be daunting, it is actually very easy. Sites like PcPartPicker will tell you about any parts that are not compatible, and compute the price. You could also go the prebuilt route, although I do not recommend it (they are generally more expensive for less performance), but boutique PC manufacturers who will put together your pc with the desired parts will sometimes only charge 50 usd. ALso, choosing your parts means you can custom tailor your PC to what you want it to do
Argument No.3 : Consoles are simply better than pc.
Really? Consoles can now use multiple input devices without having to pay for adapters? Consoles can use multiple monitors? You can choose the parts of your consoles and they are now upgradeable? Consoles are now productivity machines and can be used to do homework? You can now choose your OS on a console? You have thousands of games, and do not take games hostage (games that are taken hostage on a platform are exclusives) anymore? Consoles have more genres and not only First Person Shooters and Third Person Shooters with stealth elements. There are console strategy games? YOU DO NOT HAVE TO PAY FOR MULTIPLAYER ACCESS? That must be it, right? Oh, wait, it is just the more powerful graphics card than last years which PC has already beaten.
Argument No.4 : Uncharted! The Last of Us!
So now the refusal to let other platforms have a game is a selling point for your platform? It is now ethical to keep games from all platforms but one? Please, tell me more.
Argument No.5 : I want to play on a TV
Hook up a PC to your tv and connect a controller to your pc. Nothing more to be said.
Argument No.6 : Controllers
So yes, consoles have controllers, But they exist on PC too. As a plus, we can use other controllers, and are not locked in to use one controller (ahem, no ps4 controllers on Xbox One S)
This is actually a pro for pc, as we have a wider selection of controllers.
Argument No. 7 : Resolution is just a number. So is FPS
It is not. Resolution is important. How would you like playing on a 720p screen at 30 fps? Oh wait, that is what you use. How about 480p at 5 fps. Would you still say that resolution is just a number? You would not even be able to see the crosshair on your third person shooter with stealth elements.
Argument No.8 : Graphics don’t matter.
Actually, if that were the case go play some pong, pac man, and other simple games and see how you like that.
All of this should have made you join the Glorious Pc Master Race, and leave behind your dirty console and its 720p rendering.
