It might also help if you release it across all platforms at the same time...without the live royalty bull****.
I was special on the 360. When people rave about it, it's usually because they have played the co-op with a friend, side by side on the same couch. It's a blast, you can come up with some great tactics and try to out do each other wish over the top kills. As you said though, when it came to PC, almost everyone had done it before, seen it before, so they just were not excited.

I think if you delay games releases across platforms you are generally going to get a poorer score, it's how the industry works. Just like expansion packs get a generally lower score, for about the same money's worth. Why, because it's not new.

I also tend to agree that standards are higher, console gamers can swear blue murder if you like but PC gamers have soooo many games to compare, consoles usually only have that generation, as if there is a blockage when it's not on the same system.

Orange box being the exception last year, which deserved to score higher on PC

COD 4, PS3 - 94.16% 360 - 93.68% PC - 92.7%

UT3, PS3 - 86.07% PC - 83.53%

You can find exceptions, but I'd be prepared to back Action/Shooter titles scoring higher on consoles. RTS games score higher on PC due to controls more often than not. Bioshock was close - PC down still. Mass Effect close - PC down still.

Maybe it could be a reflection of the game reviewers, PC game reviewers more jaded, been there done that attitudes? Or maybe it's the money under the tables by the big corps to console reviewers. I thought gears for PC played well, added some new stuff, had good mp. I think 94% to 87% is rather unfair.

Speaking of Mass Effect... it really is an amazing game and it runs so smooth . This is definitely among the best ports i've ever seen. Cudos to Bioware

Console games are accustomed to mediocre titles that they claim as being godlike. Hell, just look at Halo.

That's all.

Or maybe they could release the game at the same time, so a review site can talk about the game etc, then move next to the difference between the platforms...gow was released much later on the pc version and its hard to review something like that when you already reviews it before/played it/etc..

GoW maybe a great game on console but is only a good game on PC. I was chainsawing baddies 15 years ago.

Is Epic really that naive in how the different markets view games? Epic has lost total touch of what the PC market wants and requires.

Looking forward to Epic's b*tching and moaning about UT3 scores 3 months from now.

Maybe it's just my TN panel, but GoW and all other UT3 games look like living crap to my eyes. I truly hate the color pallet. Everything looks gray/blue.

I bought GoW pc and never played it past the first half hour. I just think it's the worst gameplay I've played since FEAR, which I also thought sucked incredibly bad. I hate wave shooters.

Everyone needs to remember Bioware did NOT do the port. Demiurge Studios did the port.

Saying PC gamers like 'higher quality games than consoles' is quite laughable. In a FPS or TPS like GoW I would agree, as the PC does them better. But higher quality games in general? Giggle. It's quite the opposite. Or are we judging on GFX alone again?

Judging console games on Halo alone is just a typical PC gamer comment. We all know Halo is over rated, but so have many PC games been.

I agree, if I'd only settled for high quality games, I'd have never played Vampire: Bloodlines which is one of the greatest buggiest games ever and is still one of the most popular RPGs out there, it has 2 constantly upto date community patches, this is something special considering the actual developer closed down before the first and only official patch came out. THAT really shows how the PC audience differs from the consoles, and it's almost impossible to know which games we will embrace, and which we will not.
