Simply put, why does it exist? Where do you think it comes from? How have you experienced it?
I would actually argue that. I think it's because a lot of PC gamers simply think they're better players. At least, it's what I've seen.I think that it comes from people that are under the impression that their computer is just much more powerful than consoles.
At considerable costs to the creator however. For the price of a new console ($300) you can't build a decent gaming rig. Yeah, you could play some classics but you couldn't play modern console/PC titles. I think this may be another source of pride for PC gamers as the sheer cost can be staggering and I guess it's something to brag about. You can build a good gaming PC for under a grand, but if you want one to perform beyond a console level you're looking beyond a grand.I actually believe that PCs can be made significantly more powerful than consoles (currently) but I don't have any issue with consoles.
