Console Grand Theft Auto V in September

Rockstar Games announces a September 17th release date for the console editions of Grand Theft Auto V, apologizing for the delay to the open-world action sequel, and saying: "trust us, it will be worth the extra time. GTAV is a massively ambitious and complex game and it simply needs a little more polish to be of the standard we and, more importantly, you require." No announcement has yet been made about a PC edition of the game, but for reference, a Windows version of Grand Theft Auto IV was only first announced a few months after the console editions shipped.

It's not being elitist. Games on PC are almost always of much higher quality. I want to put my money on higher quality products, so I get more of them. I personally never understood why people accept low resolutions, shitty textures and horrible aiming on consoles. I find this MUCH worse as a gamer and also as someone who cares about the future of gaming and general progression...

I beg to differ with you as to weather you are an elitist - 80% of what you just wrote is elitist.

Good game is a good game be it with low resolutions, shitty textures and horrible console control or not.

A gamer likes games - not shiney graphics and uber frame rates (which are nice, but don't always make amazing games.

I never claimed that graphics make a game...

Having shitty textures does prevent you from seeing what is what and it also is bad for immersion. I stopped playing Zelda Twilight Princess because there was a puzzle that I couldn't figure out because of the low resolution. Turns out I had to use an object on two red pixels who turned out to be a bird. There was no way of knowing, and it would have been obvious which item to use if I saw the bird.

Mouse controls to aim is also a major factor that has nothing to do with graphics. Why in the hell aim with a gamepad when it's just so much better, faster and more natural with a mouse.

I just gave a few quick examples. You can add mods to the list. But anyway, why would wanting to play the better version of a game be elitism? You know, you can buy the cheap no-name cereal brand. It'll look the same as the real deal, but if you'd taste both of them, the no name one would taste worse. Are you an elitist if you prefer to buy the real thing?
