Like it or not, the game will be superior on the PC. This is also coming from a strictly console gamer who has no intentions of getting V on the pc when it releases.

 

I can't wait to see what the PC community does to V it should be impressive to say the least.

 

(And yeah the smug PC master races dudes are douches)

It comes off as elitist and that's annoying.

PC are superior tho.  Its just the way it is...    Its not annoying or elitist, that's insane.

 

 

That's like someone on a pedal bike getting mad that a dirt bike is faster.. Its just the way it is.

It may come off like that... but it is true. The game on the PC will have a whole sh*t load of mods and cool things you can add to the game. Consoles can't do that bro.

I don’t think it’s about hate. It’s a piracy issue since it’s a lot harder to make pirated versions of a console game, especially for the ps3. I’m hoping though that the team will get more time to port it to next-gen consoles and PC. GTA IV obviously didn’t have that and was a really crappy port. I can’t wait to see what it will look like on the PC. Will be interesting to see what my overclocked EVGA GTX 780 Classified manages to pull off it.

I like playing games on PC.

I did want the PC version to come out way after the PS3 version, since MOST people on PC would just download it.

Even though the PS3 version was pirated already, Many people do not have their PS3 jailbroken.

You misunderstand the point. It has nothing to do with how powerful a pc is, and everything to do with how pc elitists act.

You have also missed the point entirely. It has nothing to do with how powerful a pc is or what it is capable of.

Undeniable fact.

 

However, PC gamers tend to be the biggest arseholes on the planet, even calling themselves 'the master race'. Look how that turned out for Hilter and his arian vision. It's not the PCs I hate, it's the people using them. 

 

Don't even get me started on their contradictory, hypocritical, use of Windows when they all claim to hate Microsoft.

When it comes to performance the PC is better in every way, saying that doesn't make you arrogant or an "elitist". Look at it like this: the PS3 and Xbox 360 are computers too, only they're outdated, obviously modern high-end PCs are going to be better. It's like comparing the speed of a normal 1930's car to a normal modern car, the modern car is obviously going to be faster. Also the great thing about PCs is that you can change video settings, mod games, install fixes made by the community instead of waiting for the developers to release patches which may never come etc. The PC is simply better in every way.

The problem I have is the PC players claiming that the game will be better on PC (Any game past of present) Then when it comes out, they complain about all the bugs and quality issues saying that the game was rushed for PC and that the Console players are catered to. Then they have to mod the crap out of the game to make it better than the console version and then gloat about how much better it is.

 

It is really stupid.

This is the problem, you need to do all of this just to make the game the better. I do nothing on a console, and enjoy the crap out of it.

 

Skyrim is a great example. On the Console there are issues, it has bugs and quality issues. But it is absolutely amazing and has great replay value, totally worth the money to purchase it. On the PC it was pretty much the same. But then when you mod the hell out of it, it is absolutely beautiful and you can change things to be what you want them to be. But before all of that, it is basically the same game, people even play it on their PC with an Xbox controller.

 

So at face value, there isn't an incredible difference, the game is designed with the engine it has. Until that is upgraded by mods, it will perform nearly the same.

 

Basically, it all depends on the effort you care to put into the game. You want to just play it for what it is, then great, neither PC or Console will be much different for you. You want to increase the quality of the game, then go with the PC.

I wouldn't really call it ultimate masterpiece.

 

It is a good game yeah, but far from being a masterpiece.

 

As for the hate on PC? Most (keyword: NOT ALL) console gamers (mind you, I also game on console, for the time being anyway), are 12-15 year old kids who don't understand a sh*t about PCs, I've had my cousin who's 12 say that a console is much more powerful than a PC, regardless.

It made me want to smack him one in the face.

 

As for those who get pissed off when people say the game will be superior, the truth hurts, but neither should PC gamers say it.

 

so, hmph

Sure, but you need a "second" console that you never bring online in order to play it if I'm not misstaken. "harder to make" was a mistake. But on a PC you can use your PC as usual and play the game just fine, just not access any of the online modes.

You guys dont come of as elitist you come off as sad nerds eating.popcorn off your belly in your mums basement......

By the time it comes to pc gta will be dead with people on ps4 or xbox one playing new titles,

While you guys make videos for youtube with 200 viewers.....

Games are evolving with the focus being consoles, get rid of consoles you get rid of the gaming industry.
