How many of you have abandoned consoles?

I've not been playing PC games for more than a few years so I feel that I'm still in an extended honeymoon phase. But lately I'm really wondering what is the point of consoles. I've told myself I would wait and eventually get an 8th gen console but the longer I wait the more I think I'm not going to buy one. In the end, PCs are just cheaper due to sales plus there are so many more exclusives. Not to mention lately I'm finally getting into mods and it's absurd the amount of quality content you can find that way.

I know it's no big deal to game on just one platform as long as you're not elitist about it, but in some childish way I feel like I would be cheating on Nintendo or Sony. But they've not been the same for me in almost a decade. Why keep buying their stuff in the hopes they'll suddenly make games I want?

It is the end times for console gaming. All hail PC and 3DS.

Life is normally too short to purposely seek out things you hate, but apparently that rule doesn't apply on the Xbox One board.

I still wanna play some of the console exclusives like naughty Dog's stuff on Playstation, GTA V(hopefully not a console exclusive for long) and such, but I wish I could just play them on the PC. I prefer PC simply cause its a better experience with mods and sales allowing you to get games for super cheap. Plus if the developers optimize the games even a little bit, you usually get the best looking versions on the PC.

I still play my PS3 just for games you can't get on the PC. My original PS3 I bought back in 2008 died on my a few months ago and I bought a new one just to replace it since I still play games every once in a while on my PS3.

Currently replaying Red Dead Redemption and I wish this would have came out for PC as it would look so much better.

I think literally the only thing Nintendo could do right now to please me is a new Advance Wars that's as good as the first two.

I used to use my PS3 a lot, but I abandoned it nearly 3 years ago after I got my gaming PC. I have no interest in the current console generation as they all have no games.

The only console i went with this gen to go alongside my PC was a Wii U. For the other two i don't really care for any exclusives Sony makes and though i like the exclusives MS does i don't like the forced Kinect tacked on so im waiting till they either dump the Kinect or i just never own an XB1.
