playing games in front of a monitor/TV for a longer period of time is exhausting and you need quite a bit of stamina to endure something like an 8-9 hour session of gaming (even 2-3 hour sessions can be quite tiring to some people). Many real E-sports participants physically work out daily for at least one hour so they can endure the stress ingame (i know it’s cliché, but take Fatal1ty for an example :D). That’s more than the average workout rate in the world!

I agree with every other explanation written here, it’s clear, concise and hits the nail on the head :D

If you want glasses buy a console I wont stop you.

To truly enjoy said console, it would need to be a half decent TV levelling the playing field quite quickly with the average PC.

On the flipside, like Droniac eluded to, games are more expensive on the console and it really depends on your actually habits which would end up more expensive in the long run. This whole “the PC is expensive” statement is a misconception by console gamers. The console doesn’t do my online banking, order groceries, allow me to manage our NAS, let me do work, video editing, publish content or anything else.

As a result, for a teenager a console might be an easier investment into next-gen gaming, but for an adult who’d need a PC regardless, it’s better to spent a little extra on the PC and game a lot cheaper than it would be to buy a console just to play some games.

Then again, most real gamers just have both – so it’s a pointless argument.

All you need to get into PC gaming is an Origin Genesis at just $10,000. Console gaming is much more accessible, all you need is a measly $5,000 for a 24-karat gold Xbox 360!

Alternatively, you could not be a retarded millionaire. In that case you might shell out $240 for a Xbox 360 and roughly $600 for a high-end gaming PC. The latter object is also capable of earning a modest return on investment through this vague concept called work and sees new games priced $20-30 lower than their console counterparts.

As a result the console is invariably less expensive for the casual gamer, whereas the PC is invariably less expensive for the hardcore gamer / self-employed individual.

Personally, even though i’m a pc gamer, i tend to think pc and console both have their niche. Neither is better or worse.

Console gamers nitpick as much and piracy is equally rampant.
Look at games like morrowind, bg2, nwn etc which are kept alive till today by excellent cpmmunities with mods and patches.its just not possible with consoles, no offence intended.

For a moment, I thought the link had accidentally taken me to Cracked.com.

Excellent response! I agreed with all of your points.

I am actually genuinley insulted…

As for the ‘More money than sense’ and the ‘graphics over gameplay’ argument, I’m running a 6yr old AMD system with a Radeon 9250 (AGP, thankfully not PCI) and anyone out there who knows diddly squat about PC setups will know by todays standards that is about as shit as it gets,

However it still gives me many many hours of gaming enjoyment with the likes of kotor, morrowind, arx fatalis, fallout 1&2, fable: tlc, battlefield 1942, soldier of fortune 2, rise of nations etcetc…

If you guys spent less time writing nonsense on the internet and more time bathing perhaps you wouldn’t be ridiculed so…………………….
