Do you think PC gaming is pretty antisocial compared to console gaming

social in what way?

i'm sure more people play offline multiplayer on console but it's pretty ignorant to think you'll find more people playing online on consoles combined than on PC.
PC hardware doesn't need to match console hardware in price when PC gamers save literal thousands from the software they buy.

The more social games are, the less I tend to enjoy them

I used to play console games for split screen but for some reason they started to focus on online multiplayer last gen. PC certainly has a lot of online multiplayer games and looking at the Top 10 PC games list 4 of them are strictly multiplayer. I'm also often on Skype while I play even if I play a singleplayer game.

It is, but since my PC is hooked up to my TV, me and my friends have fun playing multiplayer coop games like Left 4 Dead and Sonic racing.

Uh....the most popular PC Games are "social" games.

WoW, Diablo, DOTA, LoL, Battlefield, etc.

No. I talk to random people on PC more than I ever did while playing consoles. Plus my friends are all PC gamers.

Its only antisocial because all your friends play on consoles... I'm in the same boat. =[

But... eh, its like living up in a beautiful excluded mountain cabin while everyone you know is scurrying around in the grimy city below. You visit them from time to time when you're lonely, maybe in the mood for some coordinated auto theft, but for the most part you know your better off up here. When it really comes down to it, I'm happier. Games don't need to always be social affairs anyways. I don't want to listen to you talk while I play Stanly Parable, so a beautiful excluded cabin is probably a much better setting for that then a noisy dirty city apartment.
