    See my above point, but PC gets second hand for reasons other than piracy, but nobody wants to admit it, because piracy is the easy way to be lazy. Like blaming video games for school shootings instead of actually admitting they were bad people.

    Nobody is losing money with PC games. Sales appear to be low because no sales statistic can account for sales on steam, or most D2D sales in the first place. Physical copy sales have dropped, but PC gamers are still buying and playing games on the same level console players are.
    Are you implying anyone who has pirAted a game is a bad person?

    If you are encountering game breaking bugs or major graphical issues, either your PC is bad, your you are a little lacking in the mental department. Emu's have numerous speedhacks and workarounds for stuff like that. I run PCSX2, Dolphin, P64 VBA, and plenty of older emus with no problems other than an occasional, 'oh that texture is flickering a bit' Unless you are running a shitty emu, the biggest problems you will find are actually quite benign. It takes a mere couple of minutes to set up a controller as well. With controller plugins being far more advanced than the actual controllers, any issues you run into can be fixed by tweaking a bit, or just finding another plugin. And running games on their respective consoles is not exactly perfect either.

    If you mean to tell me that spending $500 or more on buying each console is worth the benefit of not seeing extremely minor graphical discrepancies from time to time, than whatever.
