How is console vs PC even an argument anymore?

Seriously, I can't think of anything positive that a console has over the PC right now. Unless of course you buy one for your kid to keep him off of your PC. The PC is an "all-in-one" entertainment solution. Consoles are just locked down PCs. If controllers are keeping you gaming on the console, you can just buy the same console specific controller for PC use.

I will be the first to admit that computer gaming went through something of a dark age a few years back, but now it is in the lead by a huge margin. Can someone honestly convince me of reasons to buy a console over a PC?

You can play console games online with a gamepad and still be competent.

A lot of people play only online games so that's kind of a big deal for them.

They are cheaper
Easier to get setup and playing games
More likely to find friends irl with a console who you can play online with

Consoles are cheaper, more portable than a desktop, and have better exclusives.
Also personal preferences.
