Quoting Fistalis, reply 15
Btw if your going to quote me at least make your post pertinent to my words your quoting. I neither implied nor intended to imply that any platform is better or worse. Simply that those who have that sort of thinking tend to ignore the fact that any crazy BS PC publishers come up with eventually makes it onto consoles.
You apparently missed what I said that was pertaining to your post. In any case, I wasn't aware that there are rule about who and what I can quote. Is that buried in the agreement to register for the forums somewhere?
Whether you meant to or not, your ideas and passive agressive tone indicate that believe PC gaming is superior.
Also, doing something first and making it popular are not the same thing. Xbox Live made achievements popular, and then everyone else started doing it. Sure, other games might have done it first, but they didn't make it take off. Live also allowed you to tie your achievements across multiple games, instead of being on a game by game basis.
There is no rule.. its simply common sense and respect that you don't use my words to further your agenda when its not pertinent to my line of discussion. My other issue with you quoting me was you made it a point to say "this post isn't targeted to anyone" yet you quoted me. Which is it?
Further more I never stated anything of the sort, passive aggressively or otherwise.. you're reading into my words what you wish. I simply used examples of what people with the certain mentality I found amusing would/have say/said.
And yes popularizing and pioneering are very different however my response was to the fellow who was attempting to make it a point that xbox live was the first to implement it and PC games followed suit. Which makes it an issue of pioneering not popularizing.
Now if his point was forming mass appeal and not pioneering then he was arguing an irrelevant conclusion since he suggested that i would be better off arguing that console publishers come up with stuff and PC games adopt it afterwards.
Lastly this whole line of discussion is silly. The point i was attempting to convey was simply that the various issues PC gamers have with drm etc will soon be an issue for all gamers. Yet a number of people attempt to turn this into yet another my phallus is bigger than yours discussion of a particular choice of electronics. Rather than paying attention to the point of my words they simply cherry pick certain words in order to circumvent the entire point of this thread and start a verbal confrontation on something irrelevant to the topic.
