Nothing is more polarizing amongst game fans than arguments over which platform or console is superior. Many of us prefer gaming on a computer with a keyboard and a mouse over a controller, but, in Issue #265 of The Escapist Magazine, Chuck Wendig skewers the sometimes maddening process of getting a game to work on his PC. And the PC gaming fans had a lot to argue with him about...


Punching the Baby Seal of PC Gaming

By Chuck Wendig

See this baby seal?

So cute! A blobby white puffball straight out of a Miyazaki film. Oh, look! The widdle baby has rolled over on his back! He wants us to rub his belly-welly! The way he wiggles! The way he makes those precious piggy grunts!

I'm not going to rub his goddamn belly.

In fact, I'm going to punch him. I'm going to punch him right in his widdle mouth.

I don't want to. I'm driven to. My rage cannot be contained. You fill up a glass too full and the water spills over.

This baby seal is adorable as shit.

And I'm still going to punch his lights out.

Because Crysis just locked up on me again.


Crysis is the latest offender but it still serves as a perfect example - just one more turdlet atop a steaming heap of effluence - of why PC gaming makes me want to perform violent acts upon nature's most endearing inhabitants.
