Is it because kids tend to really do get consoles? I mean, they aren't going to ask mommy to get $1,000 PC or more. And you do always see kids browsing games near the games section in stores like Walmart, Target whatever. And they're def. all over the place in Gamestop.. I guess it's true in a way, adults w/ jobs get PCs.

Don't care for pc gaming. I got a console and a tablet for all my needs. if I wanted a pc I'd get one, I don't.


How do you have time for your wife and kids???


Seriously, three children and all that? I'd be dead by now. Maybe 31 is just that extra year that sucks the life out of you?

I don't know any adult with a job that owns a PC. Heck, most have given up their PC's for consoles. Even my cousin who builds PC's for extra cash bought an Xbox. They're usually too busy to mess around with PC's.

Having a PC seemed stupid to me unless you put it at a desk like you're working in an office. I prefer to game from TV and not have some big arse box, without having a wireless keyboard and mouse sitting on my lap, which i'm assuming is what people do if they have their PC hooked up to their TV in the lounge area. Common sense doesn't come into place.

360 pad with chatpad kb plus joy2key (or similar program) set up to use analog stick as mouse. Sorted. Instant best version of 90% of "console" games... from literally every generation. On one box. Plus superior media playback and storage for all those games and videos and music. You can even snap Skype on one side or stream your game to any streaming site..... basically, any halfway decent PC hooked up to your TV is everything MS wants you to think Xbone is (and let's be honest, Sony with PS4 too), except it actually delivers, far better than any console ever could, with a library a hundred times bigger than you'll ever get on any console.

because some PC gamers have superiority complexes
I'm back to LoL for now (I also like maplestory and cabal online)
my internet is garbage again, but I'll try to manage and get my MMO fix.

To the best of my knowledge, these are all scientifically accurate.

Because the xbone and ps4 are really just toys that appeal to kids. They are made simple and unmodable. There is no reason to not own a PC for gaming.
