I will however get the popcorn and watch with glee when you two become frustrated and start to scream at eachother!

I love debates. I love debates of topics of my interest. Part of my latter day profession was centered around debates.
In the end, I pose questions to better understand a person's POV. If they ignore the questions, I call them on it.
In the end, I think every attempt to marginalize a PC's power and usage is horrible. Not just for gaming but for the core truth of the issue.
If a person is playing games on the PC, they are a PC gamer. I consider this to be fact because it's very empirical. How anyone can argue against this is beyond me and has yet to be proven as false. Notice I did not say played but playing.
Personally, I never spent over $400 on a rig. I've been playing PC games since 1988 (mind you this is when I was aware of PC games...my family says I started earlier but I don't remember playing those games). The debate about hardcore, soft core of professional is non-nonsensical. In the end, it's like this....going to play A VIDEO GAME on my computer that happens to be a PC that runs WIndows and Linux. PC gamer all the way.
