most people are morons who turn their pc into a malware-infested mess within a week so installing drivers is like open heart surgery to them

Morons who will go to obviously shady sites ignore the warning and then complain they have malware.

So if you're a moron, don't game on PC

Same thing happens on consoles too. Some games have lag due to poor porting on the PS3 and then there's been times where the console will just suddenly turn off.

Ease of use is better on a console. This is a fact.

With PCs, you have to troubleshoot any errors that happen with a game being compatible, and there's generally a lot less plug-and-play ability.

Small example: I have a Toslink Digital Optical audio port on both my PS4 and PC. I also have a pair of Turtle Beach PX4 (simulated) surround sound headphones.

On my PS4 (and Xbox 360 on the times I've hooked them up to it) I plug my headset's transmitter into the Toslink port and hook it into a USB port for power. Instant surround sound, right out of the box. Also, anyone else in the room can hear it because the sound will also transmit through HDMI.

On PC, it's nowhere near that simple. I had to install realtek drivers in order to get the port even working. After everything is plugged in, I have to go into the playback devices menu and set the Digital Out port as default device, and then the sound plays through the headphones, but not through the HDMI speakers. Once I'm done with that, I have to go back in and set HDMI as default audio device.

And there are plenty of other situations where the consoles simply beat PC in terms of ease of use. I still love my gaming rig though.

Yep I had that problem and it made me hate pc gaming but it was due to malware/trojans I guess I would get from porn sites. I thought I had to reformat my pc every 6 months since it would get slow and cause games to have issues which was frustrating.

I go to no shady sites now on my main pc now and my gaming experience has been 100% better getting an ssd drive but I still can get random crashes.

They have probably been just because I leave my computer running days at a time without logging off or restarting. I am pretty sure if I logged off and on every time before I played a game I wouldn't get the few crashes I have got recently

Yeh and? Consoles have the same problems, I posted builds from $200-$500. All cheaper or as cheap as a new console. The $300+ range will get you something that can compete with consoles on every level and may even provide better quality settings.
