I just upgraded my new pc and it was cheap deal. I can game 120fps high settings and free online.

Everyone at my work place don't even talk about consoles they all play pc only.

Ps5 and next Xbox are taking too long. They already lost. When they come out they will be outdated.

Maybe. I'm upgrading to a Rizen 5 or 7 sometime in the next year or two, but that's mostly for RTS and simulation games. I just don't really fell like buying a lot of equipment that I'm going to have to buy new games for, and there's enough games for the hardware I already have. Upgrading my computer seems like the most logical route for me, unless Nintendo create enough exclusives for the Switch and even then only as long as they don't lock them behind a Switch Pro model.

PC's always were better than pc graphically. Consoles still never died and probably never will.

I consider myself a PC gamer, but one area where PC's will never be able to beat consoles is ease of use. Consoles just work, and you never have to spend a single second fiddling with your settings to get maximum performance.

That would be great.... if the maximum performance on consoles wasn't shit. When the maximum performance doesn't even meet your minimum standards... we have a problem.

Yeah it doesn't help when devs make dumb choices in what to prioritize for example with The Division 2 on Xbox One X they prioritized resolution over graphical detail and now the Xbox One X version is a night and day noticeably inferior counterpart to PC on high. What good is 4k if everything looks worse than better graphics on 1440p or 1080p?

As long as we're talking worst case scenarios, a lot of PC games are poorly optimized and often depend on brute processing power to overcome sloppy programming, meaning anybody who hasn't spent top dollar on their hardware is going to have to knock the settings way down, perhaps even below console fidelity.

My job is the same. I'm 31, and everyone else are older than me. I think they see consoles more as "toys" for youngsters and they have zero interest. All my friends have basically stopped playing on consoles as well. They still get some of them for a few exclusives, but they largely just gather dust.

PC gaming is just so much better in every way, and when you've seen the light you don't go back.

@drlostrib: Nvidia GeForce 2080 RTX Ti $1600+ average price to buy new. After tax, that’s $2000 just for the damn graphics card bro.

I don’t need to google the rest because it’s expensive as hell.

And I am talking about $5000 Canadian. All said and done, it’s going to be damn close.

oh yes, we totally should have known you meant CAD.

$5000 CAD to USD is like $3700, which is still an overestimate

Also, y'all have 25% tax?

120fps 1080p doesn't need a 2080 TI

Theres just way too many negatives involved in PC gaming, not least the cheats. Its ruined games in many cases.

Even if the cheat system managed to differentiate between cheaters and really top notch players, it just isn't worth the extra money to spend time building an ugly big box, that plays games with more fps but misses out on the best games available on ps4 and switch.

PC gaming was great at its peak, when there were games like command and conquer, sim city, half life and more that consoles couldn't handle. Nowadays, developing for consoles is the priority, with big games like rdr2 releasing way after they've ceased to be relevant.
