I converted a peasant...Observations after 4 weeks

Recommended Posts

Then let them look like bell ends if they enjoy the humour then whatever. No need to shit on someone for helping out a friend who was clearly interested in PC gaming from the start.  

You see, but you don't know that until you read on.

The title alone is just having a dig at consoles. Open your eyes and see what's in front of you.

Title should be helped a friend who wanted to get into pc gaming. This way you know, a good story is coming.

But no, the title is converted a peasant.

Like I've said in previous posts, what he done was actually a good thing, the way he went about telling the story was twatty.

He's even going as far as being a bellend to his mate, purely because he was a console gamer...this is what I am pointing out.

There's no need for it.

I suppose racism will be allowed next?

How was his story twatty, and how was he being a bellend to his mate? By calling him a peasant? This whole affair seems to stem from taking everything literally, of course everything is going to be offensive when you ignore the context. The title was blatantly intended to be humorous and should be taken as such, just because someone doesn't like/understand the joke doesn't automatically make the teller a dick.

 

As much as I hate to say it, it was just banter.

 

And no genuine racism/homophobia/whatever shouldn't be allowed, however when used in certain contexts its fine. I don't get but-hurt when a mate takes the piss out of my sexuality by calling me a fag, I know that he's just messing around and that's fine. That sort of thing is acceptable.   

 

It's a similar story here, PC Master race is a bloody joke, a meme. If you honestly take it seriously (as in consoles/console players are genuinely inferior) then you're a bit of a twat. But that clearly not what the OP meant.

 

Again as much as I hate using the word, it was just banter.

The story started off twatty thanks to the title.

Eh that really just seems to be you taking the PC master race thing to seriously. I just don't see how using a tongue in cheek phase makes him a bellend at all.

Well frankly, I do take the master race thing seriously.

It's horrible to build a pc and then see pc masterace console peasants everywhere.

Youtube comments are full of bellends just constantly giving console users shit.

Then that word gets thrown about, peasant. So I see pc users giving console users some serious shit and then I see this users calling his friend the same name...

This is why I've sort of been on the fence of going all the way one or another.

Because many PCMR members do attack consoles but it's as if preference isn't a thing. 

Personally I don't choose to take sides, these are companies we're talking about. It's rather ridiculous to religiously love a company.

I like some of what Sony does, I also like what some of what LG, Apple, Motorola, and so on. does.  

 

Personally I think when I build my PC, I'll also buy a PS4. Why? Because most of my friends play on PSN also a couple of the

exclusives to the PS4 [bloodborne, The Last of Us, Etc.]. 

I agree PCs are technically superior to consoles, however that doesn't warrant the hate that many PC purist have.

 

Similar story for the unwarranted Apple hate, sure Macs cost more and sure OS X doesn't have as much flexibility or certain program/app support.  

However where OS X shines is the fact that it has no fragmentation

and better support since Apple makes both the hardware and software and it just in general gets out of the way when you need to do work. Though Windows shines in the fact that you have more control over what you can do but at the same time Windows often isn't as reliable or as secure [OS X can get viruses too, but there aren't as many of them]. 

 

Either-way if your friend was happy on their console, that's sort of a douche-bag move to say that they're wrong just because they don't

play on the same platform as you. 

I think that, this is almost comparable to a homophobe telling a gay person that they're wrong because they're different. That is intolerable and impolite.

Your use of indents made my nipples hard.  I could stand to see a lot more of it.

I mean I don't usually use the formatting tools to separate paragraphs and make it look a bit more grammatically corrected. So eh okay then.  :lol:

Yeah Ill give you that, those who genuinely believe the whole PC master race thing are cancerous twats. They're also ignorant as fuck seeing as the term "PC master race" started as a youtuber taking the piss out of pc users false sense of superiority.

This is what pisses me off about it, the anger isn't exactly from this forum but rather all over the internet.

I see really hateful comments towards console users because of the choice of platform.

If the scene wasn't in this state then yeah, I would see it as banter, but because of what I see, I do not.

Hence why I'm always quick to snap at the who peasant thing.

Can we stop these threads? Most people who indulge in this circle jerk of 'converting peasants' actually only became PC gamers a few years ago themselves. It's pretty sad and I've seen hundreds of them in the past couple of years. Real PC Gamers don't really give a shit if people use consoles.

I appreciate that someone was able to finally afford a PC when they have wanted one but man do I hate this PCMR crap. It isn't funny, it is just incredibly annoying and childish. I left online gaming on consoles to avoid the 13 year old boys screaming yo mama jokes, crying about their fanboyish and left for their idiocy. I was told it didn't exist on PC gaming. What a huge and ugly lie. It is far more rampant on PC gaming than it is on console gaming.

You nailed it, all of it but it's sad that you had to break it down, that should have been self-explanatory. If for no other reason, logic should kick in here, why would I give someone a $300+ PC if I truly felt hatred for him?

 

Feel like I have to chime in on the whole PCMR thing since I got called out for it in here:

I remember when it all started, Yahtzee was trying to make a point about PC elitists, initially I thought it was brilliant that people went with "the insult" rather than try to deflect but what it evolved into over the years is a turn off to say the least.


This is LTT. One cannot force "style over substance" values & agenda on people that actually aren't afraid to pop the lid off their electronic devices, which happens to be the most common denominator of this community. Rather than take shots at this community in every post, why not seek out like-minded individuals elsewhere?
