    PC or console gameplay?

    I'm having an argument with the kid in my class.
    So which is better?

    For what kind of game?

    PC is vastly superior when it comes to shooters, and hardware.

    Console is more of a friend activity, and good for driving/platform games. At the cost of shit graphics and a bad online community. So long as you play with friends in the same room its enjoyable.

    Well nowadays, the majority of players plays FPS.

    So than PC. The control system is much better, and the skill ceiling tends to be much higher. This is excluding recent CoD games, as they are just console ports anyways. Plus a higher level of customization, and usually games come with some form of mod tools for custom content. (Again, excluding recent CoDs)

    Yay, now I got a better argument.
    And in my opinion, PC is way, better.
    More versatility and easier to control.
    I'm going to wait until there's many votes and then show it off.

    Well, if you want a good computer, it could be well over 1,000 dollars.

    Because they are two entirely separate worlds of gaming. These debates about which one is better usually winds up boiling down to PC players talking about graphics, and console players complaining about how much they think building a computer is.

    PC's are good for shooters, and any game really if you know how to work a keyboard. They have superior graphics, have ready availability to new hardware, and (used to have) a lot more support from developers, and a huge competetive scene. The introduction to console ports has killed off the last two, but PC's still have a big advantage.

    Consoles are good for casual gaming. Racing games, platform games, puzzle games, RPG games, stuff that depends less on skill, and more on a community thing. Imo, consoles are tons more fun to sit down and play with your friends in the living room. Even shitty games can become fun when played with some of your friends.

    That being said, the current market is being run by microsoft and Activision, with EA actively releasing piles of horrible games, and generally ignoring their player base altogether. inb4battlefeild. This means that games are in a horrible state, and consoles are getting more money, even though the fun factor has been drained form them. Paying $15 for content that was stripped from the game solely to make me pay for it again? No. I have forgotten about games that people are so interested in buying and moved back to playing indie games like I made a game with zombies on XBL with friends.

    its not about the cost of computers, i just prefer the gaming of a console over a computer. im sorry, its just how i feel and while pcs have better gfx (my laptop is a shit ton better then my 360) i just dont like it as much, i still game on both....A LOT. but xbox is better in my opinion.
