    Default Desktop PC vs Video Game console

    I had encountered some gamers who said that a PC is better than a video game console As long as you have the right graphics card and you have enough ram to handle games. With a PC you have the best of Both worlds, You can play older games and newer games. Meanwhile most video game consoles are meant to be obsolete. When the times PS4 and Xbox one becomes obsolete, Your PC may still be able to handle the games of the next generation as long as you can have a new graphics card. In other words you wont need to buy a new PC.

    The only disadvantage of PC is that there are games you wont be able to play if your specs are not enough and there are games that are Xbox one exclusive and PS4 exclusive. PC always end up having emulators for consoles though. I know most PS1 and PS2 games can now be played on PC thanks to emulators. I can imagine emulators for PS3,Ps4,Xbox 360 and Xbox one will be available for PC soon.

    PC gaming is definitely much better than console gaming. There are some games that are forced at a max of 30FPS and you can play them with 60plus FPS, and you can have much better textures and graphics. Consoles are a waste of money nowadays, you can buy a decent PC for like 100 or 200 more bucks than a PS4 and with much better performance!

    To be honest for me, it all depends on what your used to and what you've grown up with. I've always been a console gamer, progressing from the Sega mastersystem many years ago through various consoles now having a PlayStation4 and an Xbox ONE.

    PC gaming as never appealed to me, so I'm not sure to ask which is best is a valid question as depending on the individual, you'll get two opposing opinions, as the OP already as.

    I prefer a good PC Game, you can improve the graphics to achieve a excellent experience. However, It is important to know to have a excellent PC game is expensive. In constrast, Console can be transported anywhere, moreover it is less expensive than a good pc game.

    I saw a graphic comparison video of Tomb raider for all consoles and PC. In the PC version you can see Lara Croft's hair have multiple independent hair strands and it beautifully goes with the air.



    Now I want to buy a PC with superior graphics card.

    It is cool! This video comparison gives me sure about my wish to have a PC game. All game become amazing. Moreover, it is possible to update hardware easily, a thing that it is impossible in a console. Thanks for the video.

    If you notice the comparison, The XBox one Lara Croft have wire looking hair but on the PC version her hair looks more realistic. Also the PC one have a more expressive Face while the Xbox one version looks like she have multiple Botox. PC looks more stunning. Another advantage of PC are the mods. If you get tired of the character's costumes there are fan made costumes available on PC version for free.

    Yes, the PC one looks more better and advanced, PC's have more advantages than xbox sometimes, like I use my PC to play Skyrim and it's lovely.

    Some older PC games even have better graphics than so called Next Gen games. I am saving a lot money to have my own Alienware PC because it is the best PC for gaming and it can play both games from the past and present.

    In some games, it seemed like consoles are better than PC but I am sure there is nothing a mod cant fix:

    What I don't get is that when you talk to a PC gamer and make the mistake of telling them that you prefer console gaming, more often than not they'll look down on you before going on a rant about how so much better PC's are and on hiw much your missing out on.

    They simply don't get the fact that some people simply prefer consoles.

    And some people prefer PC games, everyone is entitled to their own opinion xD. The Alienware isn't so expensive, so I reckon it won't take you long before you get your hands on one @cashewfruit_wine

    Many Console gamers look down on PC users because they Think PC users prefer PC because of the nude fan made mods for characters. I prefer PC because of performance and backwards compatibility. PC can handle both older and newer games as long as it reaches the minimum requirements.

    Exactly, everybody will have their own preference. But what a person says to me they play games on the PC instead of on a console, I don't then sneer at them and go into 10 minute lecture about why they should get a console.

    I've said many times to people ice got an Xbox ONE and a PS4 and the PC gamer as tried to convince me I'm not a real gamer and the consoles are rubbish. I just laugh at them to be honest but that isn't the point.

    It's true that each and everyone has his own preferences. But when it comes to reaching the full potential of gaming, it's a must to get a dedicated gaming PC. PCs are just better in every way. They stronger, more flexible, and can be upgraded at any time, unlike consoles.

    Yeah I can imagine PS4 and Xbox One will be obsolete the moment their predecessors arrive. Meanwhile the PC will just need simple upgrade and replacement of some parts.
