The only one I have of the ones listed is a PC so I guess that wins by default D:

The PC is customizable in so many ways, and can also port games from every other platform (except board) to its system. So many options available, without being completely obsolete as quick as the console and mobile platforms become. Windows XP is now longer supported, but you can still upgrade your computer up to 7 (if you game on a mac, I'll offer my deepest condolences). Can't do that with a PS2.

My TL:DR view: Console and mobile are the 'recommended settings' while PC is the 'advanced settings'

Personally prefer PS4 because I grew up playing on playstation consoles so I rather stick with Sony. Sony has a good track record so I feel like it is the best option in this new generation. Occasionally I do play some games on the PC though.

See I get all that, but I just can't justify spending $1,000+ to get a rig good enough to run high graphic settings... I'd rather spend a few hundred and get the better graphics. Plus, with PCs I find SO many bugs, glitches, and crashes... it makes me want to kill someone... Also to me, nothing beats a controller nesting in my palms... Lol. All just my opinion...


Mine cost me around $450, I have yet to play a game where I couldn't max out the settings... I'm sure there is probably something out there that it won't run at the highest but this thing can run 98% (rectally measured figure) of the games out there maxed out. Be patient and thrifty so you can take advantage of sales.

As for me my loyalty lies with the games... and companies that don't actively try to screw over consumers.

Right now for me that would be PC/PS3/PS4/Vita/3DS.

PCs may be customizable, but they have lifespans. Most do not last 5 years. I know this through experience and working with PCs for awhile. That's why I choose consoles for gaming. I have consoles, including an SEGA and an SNES, that still play like the day they were released. So I have to disagree, especially with "Console and mobile are the 'recommended settings' while PC is the 'advanced settings'." But honestly it's all preference. Nowadays you can play whatever you want on mostly anything you want.

Yeah that's true, but for serious gaming you'll still have to upgrade which adds to the $450. Like when you need more hard drive space or more RAM. But yeah you're right for the most part. Gaming these days is just darn expensive no matter what you play on. Lol.

Personally I enjoy consoles more only because I have a lot of friends on my Xbox Live account, I would be a PC gamer but I do t really have the money for a decent PC and I find it harder to make friends with people in online games today compared to making friends on halo 6 years ago!

But in the end PC gaming wise is the dominator and consoles are for the people who don't want to go through the trouble of getting a PC haha gg PC gamers

I wouldn't say that... It's still preference. Nothing beats a PS4 or Xbox 360 controller in my hand... I can't stand using a mouse, even though it is "statistically" better for most games., especially FPS. But you couldn't really play games on computers until a few years ago when PCs finally were strong enough to run them properly. Consoles have been in the making since before the internet was thought of. But if I had a few thousand dollars to blow, I can't lie and say that I would make a beast of a PC for gaming, BUT I would still want my consoles for certain games. It really is all preference.

I have to disagree with you by some respects. Yes, consoles can last longer than PC's, but they don't continue to make games for older consoles when the new one is released. So while you can get a longer lifespan, you won't be seeing any new titles until you get the latest console.

This part may be on your choice of games, but for what PC makes up in straight up costs it makes up for it's great gaming deals. Games on PCs is the most saturated market for games, including many at a fairly cheap price. Most console games are at least $60 (remember the glory days when we complained about $40?) and mobile games are a trap for impulse buyers (only .99 to $99.99). I'll admit I have no experiences with the NES or SEGA never having any of those consoles, but I do know that if you treat your computer right, and give it the right specs, it can remain functional for much longer than five years.

At the end of the day, what matters is what types of games you enjoy most. You'll gravitate toward more of that platform where those types of games operate on, and that's perfectly fine. So I have no choice but to agree to disagree with you, good sir.

Well put. Lol. In that manner I actually do agree with you. I now have a computer that can play most games, so maybe I'll start to try it. I still feel safer with consoles, but you make excellent points. I'm downloading Steam now. Any suggestions? You can PM me if you'd like.

I guess I will then. I used to be a console gamer myself which was given an old PC nobody wanted and explored with what I could do with it. That's why I said console was the recommended settings, since it's a quick and easy process to just power it up, sit down and game, don't have to sweat any issues. PC requires more knowledge of your system for maximum effect, but is far more rewarding in terms of selection imo. I'll PM you some games you may like to the best of my ability, but I'm not quite sure what genre of games you're into or what universes you like to play in as preferences.
