100 Reasons Fanboys Hate PC Gaming

100 Reasons Fanboys Hate:

Now that we’ve honed your console hatred to laser intensity, we must turn our attention to the biggest snobs in gaming. You know, those guys and gals who think consoles are children’s toys and pour every last dime into keeping their PCs upgraded with all the latest components (no one at GamesRadar is like that, we swear.) When you try to tell these people they could have purchased a comfortable mid-sized sedan for the amount of money they’ve dropped on video cards alone, they’ll launch into a diatribe about gigaflops, nanolatency, or somesuch eye-glazing jargon that makes you wish you hadn’t brought it up in the first place. Thus it is with some trepidation that we present you with GamesRadar’s 100 Reasons Fanboys Hate PC Gaming. Please don’t haxxor our servers.

Just to prove we have a sense of humor about this Week of Hate thing, tomorrow we’ll reveal a humbling 100 Reasons Fanboys Hate GamesRadar.  

Engage in polite and lightly moderated discussion in our official Hate Week forum thread.
