Do you think that pc games=strategy, rpg, puzzle and adventure and console games=action, shooter, racing and fighting for example?

do you think that pc games are more likely designed to think while playing and consoles are more likely designed to jump into the action?

thank you

Nope any genre is made on any platform. For the most part pc games look better, but the keyboard and mouse is harder to use, and consoles are easier to play and regardless of what some people say, they dont have terrible graphics. Also stratergy games on consoles suck compared to the pc versions.

PC can do all of them well. RTS does not work on PS3/360.

M/K is easy to use and far better than controllers for fps etc , consoles generally do have terrible graphics, and as the other guy said pc can do ALL genres of games.

Not really seeing as the pc controlles are all about the place and for fps you have to have quick reflexes, but hey what do i know i dont buy fps's on pc. But graphics are not terrible on consoles, just some gaming pc's have increadibly good graphics cards which cost a bomb but make everything look amazing

Most PC games allow you to configure what buttons you want to use. I used to play alot around the arrow keys and having the number pad as keys I use often as well as the buttons around it. In the end I learned to play with WASD and prefer the KB/M to play batman of the game pad. I only use my game pad for FIFA and driving games.

Yeah - It was a fail quick quote. I don't find it easier........I am just to lazy to remap 30 keys each time I start a new game.

No i dont think that way. You can get a mouse and keyboard for consoles and you can get a wheel and joypad for pc´s so its not like that anymore. So now it revolves around what your pc/console can handle a what you yourself prefer.
