    I love to play games on the PC rather than console but each and everyone has his own choice. there are a lot of positive and negative aspects of playing games on the console. Do you prefer to play games on console or PC?

    I think the line is increasingly becoming blurred between the two of them. It used to be I preferred PC for better graphics and online play. Well, any console can do online play now, including a lot of portables.

    Really depends on the game at this point, I definitely prefer PC for first person shooters, my NES for platformers and yet the PS4 for netflix :D

    Ever since I built my first PC, I've preferred gaming on that rather than a console. I think with Steam and their ridiculous sales throughout the year, PC gaming is much more affordable than console gaming. Plus, when my computer becomes outdated or what have you, it's pretty simple for me to get the pieces I need and upgrade it as opposed to purchasing a whole new console, and then being worried if it doesn't backtrack and play games from the previous console.

    No, I'm a PC gamer and I love playing on PC. With a good PC, you can reach graphic that today's consoles are not able to handle. Plus, on PC we have mods, we have more support and a lot of useful features. Consoles have a bit of exclusive titles, and some of PC ports are pretty bad, but for me PC is always the way to go.

    Throughout my years of gaming, I have spent thoroughly enough time on both console and PC. PC gaming has always been the more affordable and practical choice for me. Also, I feel I have more options and capabilities in PC gaming. From downloadable mods, to graphic customization. I genuinely enjoy PC gaming over console play. I do own an Xbox I play occasionally, but it not my preferred choice of gaming. Haven't even bought a game for it in a while...

    I prefer playing games on PC but I agree that consoles are better today since you don't have to constantly improve them so you could play new games. With PC, you never know and you always have to improve your equipment.

    I don't know that I'd say "constantly" have to upgrade your computer unless you're skimping on what you're putting into it. I've had my PC for 6 years now, and upgraded the graphics card one time and it still plays all the games I want it to.

    I think the thing for me is that yes, you may have to upgrade your PC every few years, but the games you buy will always work on your PC. When Microsoft or Sony roll out the next version of their console, there's the chance they won't be backwards compatible, meaning all of the games you bought on the previous console are now outdated and can't be used on your brand new, shiny $500 console (which is more than it costs to upgrade your computer with new GPU, etc in most cases).

    I prefer console because computers can get glitchy every now and again, plus there is the risk of viruses. I have played more games on consoles than on PC.

    No, I would much rather play a game on my PC if possible. The graphics are better, you have the opportunity to also play with your keyboard if you don't like the controller controls and everything is so much more fluid.

    I love to play games on PC rather than on a console. I can update my graphics software anytime and I can choose any resolution for the specific game. I can save my game on my PC and play it from where I left it.

    If you have a console then we cannot use it as PC. PC is a master device to do anything over internet or offline. PC has always an option to upgrade its software and hardware.

    Consoles, PCs and mobile phones are all ideal for gaming. But I do prefer PCs since I am used to it. I rarely use consoles.

    I've got mixed feeling here. I really love gaming on playstaion because I've been doing it for so long. Lately, pc gaming has become really popular and I think that is why I might switch things up a little bit.

    I feel like as time passed on, more and more people prefer the PC over any console.

    I think PC is lot better. We can use the discord and other apps. And it works just fine in many cases. So on that note I'd say that console is often boring. And not something we may want to make use of as well.

    Eh, to each their own. I prefer console due to less glitching or lagging happening on my end.

    I agree on that note. That console having better RAM and other management of resources. It does work lot better in that context.

    Both really have their own pros and cons.

    Consoles are more popular due to the expensive parts of a gaming PC
