    We can have this discussion all day long and each platform's supporter won't agree to be convinced otherwise. Which of these platforms do like most and why ?

    I am fine playing games on either the console or PC. One thing gaming on the PC there are many selection of games and better freedom that it's hard getting bored. There are so many games to play with on the PC

    Vеry fеw соnsоlе gаmеs оffеrs plаyеrs thе аbility tо gеnеrаtе thеir оwn соntеnt, Hаlо 3 hаs fоrgе fеаturеs fоr plаyеrs tо сrеаtе mаps, but thаt's nоthing соmpаrе tо NWN tооlsеts.
    соnsоlе, duе tо its publishing mоdеl аnd rigid hаrdwаrе rеquirеmеnts, аrе nоtоriоusly unfriеndly tо indiе gаmеs. Bоth Xbоx/360 аnd PS2/3 try tо suppоrt indiе gаmеs with vаriоus suссеss. But thе truе indiе spirits livеs оn Pс (оn Stеаm... асtuаlly).

    I am not even sure anymore to be honest. Consoles are great since they don't need constant improvement, you just buy one and get what you get. On the other hand, PC need improvement but I like playing games on PC better. So I'll stick to the PC but I don't think that it is necessarily better.

    In my opinion PC is better than console as we have plenty of options to do the things and upgrade it any time. I have a laptop for playing games and i don't have any problem with playing games on my laptop.

    The problem with the console though-is that once outdated -there is really no way of updating it and so you must replace the entire console. You can also use PCs for many other things as well and the console only can perform one task really well. They say also there are more games out there for the PC user these days,than the console user-and lets face it -the PC is always on the cutting edge of technology as far as gaming goes these days.

    I prefer PCs over consoles because my friends are also using PCs, which lets us play online multiplayer games together. There are relatively few cross-platform multiplayer games where PC and console gamers can play together.

    Others like the "mods" they can easily add to their PC games — player-created derivations of the base game — whereas console versions of games rarely get mod support. There's also a vast library of games that aren't available on consoles, like the hugely popular "League of Legends."

    Multiple control options is big to some PC gamers, as not everyone likes to use controllers for certain games. Some prefer to play first-person-shooters like "Call of Duty" with a keyboard and mouse over a controller, for example.

    This question has varied opinions. It depends on the person and the types of games. As for me,there are games that I do enjoy playing using consoles and others using a PC.

    For example, if every game I am interested in can be played on the PC I will prefer to use the computer. The exception would be if it's only available in consoles at the moment.

    PC makes money. So people should buy it. And console can be expensive. And some of the time it can be hard to keep the money around. And that's my opinion about the console there.

    It depends on what type of games you play. If you want to play PlayStation exclusive games, PS4/Console is your best bet. If you like playing games on high frame rates and graphics settings, you should build yourself a PC. A high-end PC might also be more expensive than a console.

    Yeah, that is right. If it is only available on the console, then you have no option other than using it.

    I think that is one makes many people go for consoles, I mean that issue of cost. A good PC with all the game controls and whatever can be damn expensive to purchase.

    Yes, I guess. But if you want to play games with a better experience, you should build a High-end PC. It's like night and day when you compare the graphics and performance. It is well worth the money. :)

    I don't have a console, so for me I have no choice but to use a PC.

    I prefer the console one because I am more comfortable playing it.

    I think console is definitely the best approach if you want to take. I guess we learn from our experience. And some of the time such experience definitely is not that bad. It's just that it can be better if you ask me.
