    Which way do you prefer to play games on? PC or from your console?

    For me, I definitely prefer your gaming console. PCs are much more expensive than the consoles themselves. The consoles will always be able to play new games unlike the PC if you don't have certain hardware requirements you wouldn't be able to play some games.

    I prefer PC gaming as I am big in MMORPGs and RTS games. The PC games also last much longer because you don't see a new Starcraft II or Diablo game every year like you do with a lot of console games.

    The PC version of any game is better than the console version. You can always do much more on them because of their capabilities. There's only one major flaw for the PC and it's that there is quite a bit more hackers on them than there are on consoles.

    The only reason I would ever choose a console over a PC is for sports games or RPGs that are offline such as Skyrim.

    Console games are definitely way better. You only have to pay one time, and the story is better, the graphics are better, and you don't have to sit hunched over at a computer.

    You only have to pay one time for a PC as well. The story-line is typically the same for PCs as is for consoles, if not better for PCs because you can do more on PCs. Graphics are Actually better for PCs and that can be proven. Just saying each have their advantages.

    No, I don't believe PC games are as good because the screen is smaller. There are no mario games on the PC either. And you also have to subscribe for games like SWTOR.

    You're also much closer to the screen, thus making it bigger. You know you can plug your computer into a TV screen as well. :p

    Yes you do have to subscribe to very few games, such as SWTOR. But a PC actually offers games like it unlike consoles.

    I didn't know that you could plug your computer into a tv, but I don't think my computer can do that.

    I know you are also a lot closer to the screen, that still doesn't necessarily make it bigger, and also, the proximity to the screen can also hurt your eyesight more.

    Just because your eyes don't hurt doesn't mean that you're vision isn't getting worse. The games on the console are so much more diverse and better than the ones on the PC.

    You're still staring at a TV screen. Actually PC games have more of a variety because they delve into online things that console cannot handle. But please, post in more than just this thread. :p

    I definitely prefer to play games on a console or handheld, because my PC can't handle any game at all. I'm on a netbook, so it does good to just get online. haha.

    If you got a better computer with even good graphics, it beats console graphics.

    But it's also going to be more expensive than a console. Is it really worth the extra $$$?

    A PC with good graphics is around $400-$500. A console is what, $250 at release for the best? Consoles are strictly for gaming while you can do so much more on a PC while it lasts longer as well. Just what I think though.
