    Default PC Gamer but with console ads...

    Why? We're PC Gamers who visit this site and I'd personally never support a console platform seeing as all they do is take old PC classics and dumb them down for the tards. Please PC ads that might be something useful like "oh I want a new mouse" and there's a Razer ad or something.

    I mentioned this in a thread no one replied to... it is a little weird for there to be console exclusive games advertised on PC Gamer, but I assume most PC gamers have at least one console unlike me.

    I'm not bothered by it and am not going to be offensive about it like you just were, but it is weird.

    Consoles have their place, and if the PC mag gets some add revenue off of those suckers then that's ok with me

    Wii = kindergarted/elementary
    360 = middleschool/highschool (if you've ever been on live you know I'm right!)
    PS3 = highschool/college
    PC = college/adult

    So as you see there is some overlap with the PS3 guys and maybe even some gifted 360 prodigies.

    Some of the posts on this thread and others suggest otherwise.

    Wii= Grandma
    360 = Fanboy
    PS3 = Fanboy
    PC = Fanboy
    All Platforms = Adult

    I rarely even look at the ads anyway PC or not.

    And to lump people into distinct categories over which platform they choose is close minded imo.

    That's some nice self righteousness there... personally I've got all the current gen consoles, and while the PC is my favourite platform, I wouldn't say the consoles are completely without merit. As someone who would never buy a console, what do you think makes you so qualified to judge the quality of the games they get? Way to turn a simple question about targeted advertising into a statement of elitism.
