As someone who games on both consoles and PC, I feel that I have more insight here than most people commenting.
It depends on how one defines "better." In a nutshell:
If you're looking for a more customizable and (potentially) more powerful gaming experience, then PC is the better platform for you. (I say potentially because it really depends on how much you're willing to invest and how often you upgrade)
If you're looking for a more convenient and more efficient gaming experience, then consoles are the better platform for you.
Both platforms have their pros and cons, I know the fanboys will never admit to this but regardless just go with the gaming experience you enjoy and offers the games you're most interested in.
Personally, I lean more towards consoles because I find them to have better exclusives. No PC exclusive can offer the experiences of Uncharted, Smash Bros, The Last of Us, Metal Gear Solid, Mario, Halo, Zelda, Red Dead Redemption, Infamous etc....Most PC exclusives I find tend to be rather low budget and gimmicky. I also prefer multiplayer gaming on consoles as it's more balanced and skill based as nobody has a system advantage, on PC it really all depends who has the best hardware.
I'll take "No idea what he's talking about" for $400, Alex
