    So basically anyone who games on a console is an inferior specimen of humanity?

    Consoles are different, but those differences are getting smaller all the time. The biggest difference is in the UI. Programming for controllers is different than programming for KB and mouse. Also, keep in mind that most console gamers are playing on a larger, but lower resolution, screen, requiring larger visual elements in order for them to be clearly seen.

    My partner at work brought in his PS3 and plays quite a bit while we're on shift. I never could get used to the controller, but I find watching him play to be more entertaining that watching whatever crap is on the idiot box. From my observations the console games he plays (COD:MW, BF:BC2, etc) Seem to have good gameplay, some excellent stories, and entirely adequate graphics for the task at hand. They do seem to be a bit linear, but then so are the Half life games and that doesn't stop them from being awesome.

    Stalker will be an interesting challenge for console development due to it's free range nature, but I don't see any reason it can't work fine. A somewhat different UI will be required, and hopefully they will hand this task to a separate team that is experienced in console development.

    Nooooo! Maby we should just come to terms with that the first game will forever be the best one. It was so different and I really dont care about the bugs, the atmosphhere fixes all.

    Ummm YES that's correct.

    Sorry buddy but every single time a PC developer jumps ship for consoles, the PC version suffers.
    Developers get so caught up thinking they are going to make billions of dollars on consoles because they see Halo or Call of Duty sell over 10 million copies that they program for the console then port CRAP directly to PC.

    Most console games are worthless with the exception of the few AAA Exclusives that are awesome.
    PC gaming is superior because most PC games are played for years, modded then played for years more.
    Most console titles are forgotten by next month when the new flavor is released.

    With the exception of Valve, Blizzard, DICE, and a few others who have always placed the PC first, most multi platform games are crap. STALKER2 would have been DX11 from the ground up but now since it's a multi-plat it will be DX9 based with some DX11 cherries on top.

    Console gamers love DX9 PC gamers demand DX11 but were all gamers so Enjoy!

    Unreal tourament 3 is awesome, how could you put that in the list?

    Far cry 2 was great too when you got into it, and not a big console derp fest.
