My brother the PC elitist - Missile - 12-10-2014 09:57 AM

I don't know if I told you this before, but me and my little brother disagree with pretty much everything. Our video game tastes are a prime example of that. My brother is strictly a PC elitist (I'm a '360/PC gamer) and he loves to criticize and and insult me over the fact I play most of the Halo games, Gears of War 3, and the fact that I play on an xbox 360. But when I do play on the PC, he insults me for the games I play on there (TF2, Civ 5, World of Tanks, Tetris, and a few others).

Recently, my brother broke his computer, trying to update it while playing Alien Isolation (I don't know how that happened) , so then he turned into a ultra-Nintendo fanboy. (we also have a Wii U in our house, IDK why though). Now he only plays Legend of Zelda (I personally found the games to be boring) and when he sees me playing an xbox game, he endlessly rambles on about "oh legend of Zelda, the wind-wanker is No.1 of all time...Oh PC has super-graphics... You are a stupid console gamer...duh..." Every time I hear him rant about great the f├╝hrer (oops, I mean the PC) is and how his games are compared to mine, I imagine him (along with any other PC elitist) goose stepping and shouting "Zeig Heil" to a PC. He's also trying to talk my mom out of getting Destiny (I really enjoyed it's Beta) for me for Christmas. And he handpicks reviews that make Destiny look bad. He still does this even when I told him "I getting Destiny, whether you like it or not." (That line also applies to you if you are thinking that I shouldn't get Destiny).

How should I deal with him without using physical violence, (gets me in trouble, so sorry Brainiac) or with out destroying his Zelda crap.


My brother the PC elitist - Ky - 12-10-2014 10:06 AM

Sounds like my little brother, only with opposite tastes.

I still haven't figured out how to deal with mine, so...good luck, I guess. You'll need it.


My brother the PC elitist - KFC Nyan Cat - 12-10-2014 10:51 AM

Give him a list of advantages consoles have over PCs, and if you can't see any:

- Controllers come with it
- The couch is the standard
- You never have to worry about specs
- You don't have to reinstall the operating system after reformatting
- No viruses

Can't help you with Nintendo fanboyism, being one myself.

Dear the world:

PCs and consoles are completely different things. It is stupid to compare them because they are designed to fill different roles. It also just proves that most games have become complete boring garbage that you would rather argue about them than just play and enjoy them.

Sincerely,
A concerned citizen

I actually have nothing against PC games except for the fact that my PC was made in 2006 and can't play any of the modern ones. What I DO have something against is obnoxious PC elitists like Sharpieboy who act like consoles are the worst thing ever.


RE: My brother the PC elitist - Missile - 12-11-2014 02:09 PM

@sharpieboy

Give me $100,000,000,000 first



I'll state this again, I play on the PC and the Xbox 360. The only time I would consider becoming a "PC Aryan" (and yes I'm comparing PC elitist to the nazis) if someone would give me a very large sum of money, even then, I would slip back into the console/PC hybrid crowd.

And I'm proud to call myself a "dirty console peasant".

And it's my brother who starts the arguments in my house about "which game is better/console vs PC".

RE: My brother the PC elitist - Sharpie - 12-12-2014 03:35 AM

Sharpieboy ahah who came up with that originally? I like it :3

You can build an acceptable gaming pc for the same cost as a new ps4/xbox one :|

My brother the PC elitist - brainiac3397 - 12-12-2014 05:23 AM

PC is for Gods.


RE: My brother the PC elitist - Missile - 12-12-2014 06:24 AM

If PCs are for gods, then why can I seriously injure a PC god as easily as a "console peasant"

And before you go "oh just build a PC" most of the games I play are Xbox exclusives and I couldn't care less about all the bells and whistles the PC offers (mods, graphics, more props, crap like the occulus rift, etc.) I really don't need all that crap if I want to enjoy a game of Halo or Gears of War.


My brother the PC elitist - brainiac3397 - 12-12-2014 06:53 AM

I like PC because we can see the code. We can stick our dirty little fingers into the heart of game AND YANK IT OUT!

It's only sad can't play those exclusives on a PC. There are some fun games.

Actually, I know for fact that I've seen Wii, Wii U, and Xbox 360 bundles that come with two controllers. Not sure about PS3, Xbox One, or PS4 (because I don't care about the PS3 or Xbox One and I have no chance of getting a PS4 before PS5 comes out.)

But you are right in that default bundles don't come with multiple controllers.


My brother the PC elitist - brainiac3397 - 12-12-2014 08:34 AM

Damn bastards came out with PS4 a year after I got a PS3, which I today use more to open tv shows on the TV using the internet than for games(the hard drive is malfunctioning so I can't install anything, and the controller has gone psycho-haywire and I have to beat it to get it to work, then handle it like an activated nuclear bomb so it doesn't go crazy again)

Sony also needs to work on not screwing people over by totally making our older games inoperable when we get a new system.

Good thing I'm not interested in the PS3!

Too bad you don't have a pc, I still play games from the 90s and early 2000s :|

I do have a PC, it's broke right now though

I can do that, it's called not fucking throwing out your older consoles!


RE: My brother the PC elitist - brainiac3397 - 01-04-2015 05:31 AM

I think I still have my N64

I think I still have my superior emulators.


My brother the PC elitist - Dikont5 - 01-04-2015 01:56 PM

Tell your brother that the PC (Personal Computer) was originally built for long distance communication and not for the entertainment and consumption of mass media that is used nowadays. Besides, unless your brother owns a Alienware pc, the shit he's using is vastly inferior compared to it, thus making his statement about other consoles false, and revealing the bastard's hypocritical and stupid side. The Xbox was originally made for the sole purpose of playing games with other handy features attached to it afterwards. In my opinion, console wars are quite frankly, "dumb" because they pit remarkably different electronic items made by different companies with different interests in mind, so saying that one console is superior to others is like saying that one race is superior to all others (Aka Nazism).


RE: My brother the PC elitist - Sharpie - 01-04-2015 02:05 PM

Alienware is overpriced garbage just sayin'


My brother the PC elitist - Chanku - 01-04-2015 02:28 PM

ACTUALLY Dikont5 you are incorrect. Alien ware desktops(their laptops aren't that bad), are overpriced pieces of shit. You can build one for a bit cheaper with nearly the same specs. Although in reality pre-builts aren't very good it's better to custom build(or have a place build them for you, but it's the same thing essentially, only you aren't doing it yourself). So after you mentioned alien wares I couldn't believe you anymore and it calls into question the validity of your own statement. ALSO here's something else



My brother the PC elitist - Missile - 01-04-2015 02:48 PM

Lizard squad also took down Blizzard servers earlier in 2014


RE: My brother the PC elitist - Sharpie - 01-04-2015 04:58 PM

Blizzard is still a thing? Like, people still buy and play their games?


RE: My brother the PC elitist - brainiac3397 - 01-04-2015 05:00 PM

I assumed Alienware was superior till Dell bought em.
