    Oliver Well, all the professional FPS gamers need a central game to compete against each other. Since CoD just seemed to win over all the other shooters out there, CoD is the central FPS game, and hence, the professionals want to become the best they can. And sometimes, that means new gear.

    I only really play 360 and computer. Does that make me a gamer? Or does the fact that I dont own/haven't played every console exclude me?

    And frankly, there is just as much skill involved in mastering a console shooter as a PC one. Get off your elitist horse.

    Chris I once met an anon who said something interesting. He thinks consoles should go back to when they literally only played games. Which sounds kind of crazy, but I think I'd agree with it. pretty much everyone has a thousand dollar facebook machine anyway, we don't need another one in front of a couch.

    Angus Jesus Christ, people...It's a fucking video game. Either get over it or turn off the console and do something productive with your time.

Thank you for taking the time to read this reality check.
