No that's not why I or most people I know play PC. The reasons I do and most people I do are

1. Freedom of choice on things as your build , what resolution you play at, FPS
2. cheaper games
3. bigger selection of games
4. Free online
5. more controller options
6. Backwards compatibility
7. Mods

and I am sure I am forgetting a few things but M&K wouldn't rate high on my list. I tend to still use a controller about 80% of the time.


I agree pretty much with all of this.

M&K for first person shooters and RTS or any kind of strategy game where you're constantly clicking to select units. Controller (of some sort) for almost everything else.

I don't know what percentage of the time I'm using a controller, but if it's more comfortable and there's no downsides then yeah, I use a controller. There's a few games where I might still go with keyboard (pinball games for example) but I can do controller just as well.

I got a PS4 new for $340 on Prime Day bundle that came with Witcher 3 and Arkham Knight when they were new, so the system was $220, net $60 for each game. I got a WiiU used for $80 so I could play Mario Maker, Breath of the Wild, Mario Kart. I also got a 3DS as a gift. So Ive paid out-of-pocket $300 for all of my current systems. I couldnt imagine paying nearly four times as much for a PC that cant even play the games I want to play. I probably havent even paid more than $500 on games I have on all the systems. If I had put all the money into a PC, Id still owe another $300 and not have a single game. Buying a PC just doesnt make sense for my play style...would be money wasted.

Many things but a lot of them are kids who's parent buy them what they have and they are upset they are not the big kid on the block.

So they try to poke fun of the system and minimalize it's power.

nice, so apparently we've moved on from the exact same examples you set and onto special bundles as well as used consoles in order to form a counter-point.

this is why nobody likes to debate with console gamers.

Last time I checked, "PC" wasn't a standardized "system", and PCs range in configuration from low-power Ultrabooks to insanely priced e-peen rigs with most gamers using rigs that are right around the power of the base PS4/XB1.

If you dont want to discuss economics, which is key to why I and many others go with consoles, thats cool with me. PCs are of superior quality, like I said in my first post, but not by enough for me to shell out a grand plus. Consoles arent the best but meet my needs and then some at a fraction of the cost. I get more bang for my buck with consoles. PCs just arent worth it to me. If they were less expensive and Nintendo and other console-only companies opened up their console exclusives for the PC, Id definitely give PCs a second look.

Add the full price of the 3DS if you want, its still a fraction of the cost of a PC with power I dont really care enough about to pay for. You dont have to like that not everyone cares about graphicical power for it to be true. Some people couldnt care less about it. Have a nice night, mate!
