Michael Pachter: PCMR are arrogant, twits, and racist

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP
Quote

I think PC Gamers are like racists; they only like their own kind, and they have no interest in venturing out and mixing with other races.

PC gamers are arrogant twits who are convinced what they do is better than what anybody else can possibly do.

However if you were an Xbox owner and you’ve always wondered what it’s like to be a PlayStation owner, this is a great opportunity.

And I think if you’re not a [next-gen] console owner at all – which would include a subset of PC users – this is the one you would buy. This [PS4 Pro] is the obvious choice.

IMO, he takes PCMR way too seriously. Some own both PC and consoles, just like some own both PC and Mac products.

While I do agree that quite a few people act in an elitist way, that guy is also taking things too seriously by calling gaming medium owners different "races"

We have no real option to "mix" with console gamers, because cross platform multiplayer only happens in like 3 games ever.

But yeah, that's out of order.

So far has Mr Financial Analyst fallen that he resorts to a cheap pop, a lame trolling attempt?

 

Hehehe whatever Cunty McCuntface: you're just pissed your job of (extremely poorly) predicting console trends is becoming as obsolete as said consoles, good fucking riddance.

Im sure not going to deny that some of the PCMR are in fact exactly that. But trying to paint an entire group with the same brush is just stupid. Why cant people accept that other people have differing opinions and just leave it alone? Why not just say "hey they dont agree with me" and move on. Why is it always personal attacks.

I think he's just mad you can't invest on "PC" , the way you can with consoles so he's angry that people are moving to PC and not buying consoles where he can make money.

While he is partially right, imo the "loud ones" are the bad ones and they are a minority, you just't won't hear anyone say "Yeah, I played a game and no one mentioned my mom". 

There is an old saying in my country that translates approximately to "You can hear a good voice far, but you can hear a bad voice even further". 


The ability to google properly is a skill of its own.

I don't get it...yes, I own a PC and while I think it's the best gaming platform option for me, I also own every single Playstation that has ever been released (PS1 ~ PS4, PSP, PSVita).  Does that make me a "PCMR twit" too? He's just broadly labeling us all with the actions of the vocal minority, which to be honest, are mostly just trolls. smh

if you take PCMR shit seriuesly and not for the laughs its you that cant take a joke and not something wrong with the gaming comunity, even tho i dislike consoles i wont go bashing on someone for playing on one, even tho its worse value for your money, consoles are also good blueray/DVD players

"Here is some advice that might have gotten lost somewhere along the way in your life. 

 

#1. Treat others as you would like to be treated.

#2. It's best to keep your mouth shut; and appear to be stupid, rather than open it and remove all doubt.

#3. There is nothing "wrong" with being wrong. Learning from a mistake can be more valuable than not making one in the first place.

 

Follow these simple rules in life, and I promise you, things magically get easier. " - MageTank 31-10-2016

I’ve never used the word “twit” in my life.

 

I absolutely used the term racist, but only upon being questioned repeatedly about what I meant when I called PC gamers insular.

 

The reporting here was irresponsible. I’ve done 6000 interviews over the last 15 years (we’re required to log them), and somehow, have been able to hide my bigoted side until today . . . I’m not sure what the “reporter” was trying to do, other than stir the pot. Yes, I said that the PS4 Pro probably wouldn’t appeal to PC gamers, The rest is just silly.

Directly says "PC gamers are arrogant twits" in the interview, then tries to blame it on the reporter then lie.

 

Jesus, and Dice called this guy "The most prolific analyst in the videogame business" in an interview/chat

he's right you know.. But he's wrong in blanket stereotyping on every user being  of a certain preset of  response to other platform gamers

It looks like he really didn't say that:

Quote

Pachter stated on NeoGAF however that these quotes were horribly misrepresented and potentially invented. “I’ve never used the word “twit” in my life,” Pachter clarified, and he went on to say he only used the term “racists” after being repeatedly questioned on what he meant by his use of the word “insular”. The analyst says his main point was the PC players would not be drawn to the PS4 Pro, but “The rest is just silly.”

Either way, I'm just sorta trying to adopt IDGAF attitude because games are games are games are games.

The problem is that people do take PCMR seriously. Many PCMR "members" take it seriously too. It might have started out as a funny joke, ha ha. But the reality is that there is a large subset of the "PCMR" community that in fact, totally, 100% believes their own bullshit propaganda. These people really do attack console users, call them dumb, or say that console users are the reason for all that is horrible in PC Gaming, etc.

 

They're a minority of the group - to be sure. But they're very loud, and they exist.

 

So saying "lol if you take PCMR seriously ur an idiot" is disingenuous, and is equivalent to sticking your head in the sand.

What? PC gamers who have fun branding themselves with the slogan that was conceived to mock the elitism of PC gamers are acting elitist? No, surely not!
