    I was a console player my whole life. Then when I finally got a job I droped about 1200 on a decient gamming PC. I had it for about 4 years now and never had to upgrade a thing, although I plan on it soon. But having a good PC makes the rest of everything you use a computer for better anyways. My X-Box and Big screen tv collect dust because my PC can do everything better. And after playing games like Fallout and Skyrim on a PC with the mods, well I am sorry for those of you who are missing out. Especially with the HD textures and graphics cranked to Ultra, it allready looks better than what the PS4 is capable of. Not to mention I just got XCOM for free just because I preordered the new Bio Shock muhahaha

    Really interesting rivalries, some one them surprised me.

    It would've been better if it's just franchises vs franchises. Besides, I don't think Sonic vs Mario is a big deal anymore.

    When it comes to "PC Gaming vs Console Gaming," or "JRPG vs WRPG" or "Metal Gear Solid vs Splinter Cell," I'd rather not pick sides, and just try to have both.

    DQ vs FF? More like Non-Square Enix JRPGs vs FF, seriously, the series overshadows way too many other games. CoD < Battlefield, because an open field is much, MUCH better than corridors. CoD could be a rail-shooter and nobody will notice. Nintendo > Sega, because SEGA has been letting fans down, in addition of burning them with bad games and by closing YT accounts for no reason. JRPGs > WRPGs (for me), because in a WRPG, you often alone, with the NPCs just supporting you, while in a JRPG, you're a team. WOW < newest MMO, honestly, we can't say that WOW didn't made the cash and didn't made its mark, but MMOs should be free-to-play everyday. Mario > Sonic, because Sonic hasn't been in the best games lately. Sonic games try too hard to come up with something new, while Mario, despite using the same formula, still works well. PC Gaming < Console Gaming (to me), even if PCs are much more powerful, you need to upgrade them at an alarming rate, costing more and more. At least a console doesn't need hardware updates.

    Loved the list. As far as the whole debate goes though, I just stay out of the way of which is better than the other and just enjoy everything that gaming has to offer. I play everything from Nintendo to PC; Whether its a JRPG or a FPS, I play them all and I am quite happy doing so. ....except MMO's. Those pile of turds can just sit in a corner and die for all I care :P

    How can you do a list and not mention that Minecraft is the greatest game in the world? (I've never played Minecraft)
  • BaraChat - March 11, 2013 7:32 p.m.

    No matter the subject, most gamers I've ever talked to can't even argue properly one way or another. Most of the time they made up idiotic arguments (Halo is better than Metal Gear Solid because your character can be different colors. I swear I heard that one a few years back. I still can't believe the guy thought he had a real strong point) or acted childish (you know, like "BLA BLA BLA I CAN'T HEAR YOU COD IS BETTER THAN EVERYTHING HUMANITY HAS EVER CREATED F*** YOU" and ran away) whenever someone else tried to have a mature debate. I usually like to discuss games and even have a good debate (a REAL one, not a "MY GAME HAS LAzER GUNZ. URZ SUKS. LOL NOOOZBZ. UR MOM'S FAT. I WIN!!!111!!" one) now and then. But with many of today's gamers it's basically impossible.

    That's the Internet for you! Not everyone is hopeless though, i want to believe.
  • bajukie - July 22, 2013 10:35 a.m.

    Agree.

    I haven't laughed this hard at a Top 7 in a while, this was a great read.
  • shawksta - March 11, 2013 5:43 p.m.

    Great list, some are debatable that arent even worth it if your a Multigamer, especially # 1 but that doesnt mean the rivalry isnt serious
  • GamesRadarCollanderCooper - March 11, 2013 4:40 p.m.

    #1 is a completely contrived debate. Everyone knows that PC gaming is superior. I just don't wan't to buy a new $2000 rig every year to play the newest games at their optimal quality
  • christian-shaffer - March 11, 2013 5:43 p.m.

    I won't argue that it's a contrived argument, but the idea that it is superior is just stupid. It depends on what you want out of your gaming experience. Each form of gaming excels in different aspects, meaning neither is superior. The whole argument is pointless and childish for this very reason. The idea that anyone is better than me or that their gaming experience is better than mine because they use a different form of gaming is bullshit and it just shows that you're really only focused on your ego.

    Consoles and computers have components whose specifications and performance are demonstrably and quantifiably different
  • MolokoVeck - March 13, 2013 11:20 a.m.

    Males and females have components whose specifications and performance are demonstrably and quantifiably different. Would you suggest that one gender is superior? Nobody is arguing that PC and console gaming are not different. The point is that you cannot demonstrate or quantify the quality of either medium. It is purely subjective. Some people would argue that SNES games were the greatest ever made, and using your logic the SNES is a total piece of crap because it has awful specs and performance.
  • GamesRadarCollanderCooper - March 13, 2013 3:55 p.m.

    In terms of physical strength, height, and weight, men are generally are superior to women. Nice try, though. I'm not speaking about aesthetic preferences
  • bajukie - July 22, 2013 10:29 a.m.

    Weight? That counts? And what's with your use of the word generally in that first sentence? Men do you mean men aren't better than women in every case? Do you mean that there are exceptions? Didn't you say "pc gaming is superior" instead of "pc gaming is GENERALLY superior"? Does that mean there are some console experiences that are better than pc experiences? Does all of this mean that your "argument" needs more thought?

    The ability to carry/support life > Being able to run faster or jump higher. Jackass.
  • GamesRadarCollanderCooper - March 19, 2013 3:09 p.m.

    LOL. Who the fuck are you? Gloria Steinem?
