His complaint is that others, by buying products they enjoy, are not shaping the market to his desires. If that isn't entitlement, then what is?

So if you voted for Romney*, and complain about the direction Obama is taking the country, against your desires, you are just entitled. If lots of people buy a game I think is shit, like Thi4f and the new Wolfenstein, and I complain and voice my opinions of those games, I'm just entitled. Anytime I voice an opinion on something that I think should be better, or speak with my wallet and refuse to purchase for whatever reason ( consolization, DRM, forced social BS, online-only...), I'm acting entitled.

I think you should look up "entitlement". Wanting something better and having a strong opinion about something is not the same as feeling you deserve it. I'm just so fucking tired of the whole "entitled PC gamer" bullshit from clueless fanboys and console sheeple.

*I didn't. I mean... hell no.
Here's the difference between the perfectly reasonable scenarios you described, and what's actually happening. You or anyone else is more than welcome to point out your displeasure with an aspect of a product. What you don't have any grounds to do, is claim that you're being treated unequally.

It's basically the same thing as the thread a few weeks ago where people complained that Bungie was fucking over PC gamers - never mind that they have the exact same number of games that they would have had, had Destiny not been made at all.

If you guys want to claim disparate treatment, let's see some actual relative harm. The PC has higher settings than the next-gen consoles, available right out of the box, so no harm there - quite the opposite, it's special treatment just for your platform. So much for Settingsgate.
