something that almost everyone ignores as if it was insignificant but it's HUGE. People only want to talk about graphics which are great and of course the PC is the best but it's supposed to be the best if you invest in expensive hardware.
But there is something else that is a huge advantage that is never mentioned here. And that is something that I think is the most important factor that gives the PC a huge advantage over all of the next gen consoles.
That is backwards compatibility. If you own a PC, you can play games all the way back to the original diablo, fallout and even games such as morrowind without any problems.
Not only that, but you never lose your entire software library every few years when a new gen appears. I have over 100 games on steam and it's just awesome that I can go there and play anything I want and now that the next gen is here I can just add next gen games to my library.
With consoles, if you go to the next gen you have to really lose all your previous games because no one is going to have that much hardware connected to their tvs. You're not going to have a 360, X1, PS3, PS4, PS1 and Xbox just to play older games. And I didn't even include the Nintendo consoles.
But even if you did have all those consoles, you would still have to be switching all sorts of disks around on all the consoles to just play those games.
With PC there is no disk swapping, everything is in my hard drive and I can just switch seamlessly between games. Everything is compatible and works just so great.
Oh yea and the graphics are better too.
