What made you switch to PC gaming?
I will be building my first gaming PC soon, i will still use my consoles for certain games but my PC will be my main gaming platform. The reason for this is because eighth generation consoles have these new features which make them like a PC but not as good. Consoles just seem like weak PC's to me now.

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

Pretty much just summed it up for me. I'm not entirely a PC gamer, though and still play on consoles quite a bit. Sooner or later though, I plan on switching entirely to PC gaming. Consoles nowadays try too hard to be computers, especially with all the F2P games they have, the constant game/software updates, and all the social media bullcrap they have now.

A PC gamer friend of the family saw how much I loved playing games, and offered to help build a gaming PC for me. I've never looked back.

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

The steam store search is kind of crappy but here.

That is a listing of most rpg's and JRPGs available just on steam.

Cause I realized console games have no good games, I bought a WiiU cause I though Nintendo still had it, but no they don't.
