Consoles are more popular than mid to high end gaming computers. Its also easier to justify a 400 dollar purchase when you aren't a hardcore gamer.
Personally, I have plenty of real and internet friends on pc so I don't have that issue but I understand that your situation is pretty common. I have been able to 'convert' several of my console only friends onto pc over the last few years and they don't really touch the consoles anymore.
It really depends on your friends but I'd have to agree that in general more people have a console in the house compared to a gaming pc, which means it has a larger community. It's also very simple to communicate and requires very little setup compared to pc.
I didn't vote because neither option is really true or a safe generalization.
I don' t think so. Ever since the internet came around, PC is actually has been more social than consoles. Back then consoles were designed to be played locally with no internet connection.There were a reason why PS2 was called a console for hikikomori. Nowadays, consoles and PC are equal on that regard since both can utilize internet connection. It is just the Gen Z people mostly prefer consoles because of the learning process required to be familiar with PC. That doesn't mean PC is any more anti-social than any consoles just because there are less people and 'one PC per person' rather than splitscreen consoles.
