Much more JRPG's on PC than there are on console.

Really? The reason I was going to keep my PS3 was because I thought it had more JRPG's than PC.

He has no clue what he is talking about and is probably including being able to emulate older games that most console jrpg lovers have played years ago. Pc doesnt get many jrpg and very rarely get releases at the same time as consoles and handhelds.

I was serious.
You can play nearly every console game up to ps2 and PC games gamemaker, rpg maker, etc. And the best version of multi platform games. And other genres of RPGs like strategy, etc.

Ps2 and ps1 and snes had a lot of great jrpgs, PS3 and x360 got very few jrpg's compared to the 8 years of RPGs and JRPGs PC got in the same timeline.

I still play my consoles a lil bit, but I have yet to get one of the next gen consoles. They don't have any great games out for them, that aren't on PC. Once a good RPG comes out for PS4, that isn't on PC, I'll prob get the system. Until then, it's PC for me.

Obviously if you are enthusiastic about playing games, and want the best experience possible, then you need a PC. This is as simple as it gets

3 years ago and I switched because I had money.

PS2/Gamecube era was drawing to a close and I didn't feel like shelling out for a new console when I had a capable PC right here. So, I tried out Half Life 2 after not playing a PC game in years (last was... Doom 2, I think) and it hooked me. Been gaming on the comp ever since.

My console years were '96 to '03 (PS1, DC, PS2). The DC gave me a taste of online gaming and M/KB controls, and the PS2 seemed like a backward step in some ways. Also, I'd enjoyed playing Command and Conquer games on the PS1, but there were none for the DC or PS2. I did buy a 360 in '08, but it didn't get much use, and I soon sold it on. Now I just have the one desktop PC.

In retrospect, I probably should have just bought a desktop PC in 2000, rather than the DC.

cause the gap between each console gen keeps getting smaller and smaller, and the difference in power between xbone/ps4 and their predecessors is pathetic.

now if you'll excuse me i'm off to buy one of those because of those god damn exclusives...

Same here. I hate how weak the PS4 is compared to the PS3 for its time, and I hate the online pay wall. But some of those damn exclusives...
