Back on PS2 era, PCs were still the ultimate gaming machine.

And every respectable gamer had powerful gaming PC. Even those that had PS2 or Gamecube.

(I had both of those consoles, yet did most gaming on PC.)

On 360/PS3 era, consoles became equals to PCs. You no longer needed PC, as your 360 could run all those big games such as Oblivion and GTAIV totally fine (and with less crashes!).

And on this era, consoles became better than PCs. Way better.

So, consoles have finally become the ultimate gaming machines, and gaming PCs have become niche, a dying species.

Even serious, competitive gamers rather play Fortnite and like on PS4 than on their laptop!

So. consoles won the long war. This is a fact, and there is no point arguing it, PC fans. It is a fact.

Anyways, did you see this coming?

Back in the day, when consoles were still weak and had no hard drives, could you ever imagine that one day consoles would be better and more powerful gaming machines than PCs?? More affordable too!

Because I did not see it coming. I thought consoles might one day be equal to PCs, but I'd never had guessed they could totally trounce gaming PCs in so definite manner as they have done this gen.

No, I don't see it.

Trust me, I'll let you know when consoles can provide a better experience than a PC for gaming. It ain't today, I can tell you that.

Nobody really cares about AAA premium PC gaming. PC gamers only play f2p MMO, RTS, browser and DotA like games. That's why most developers make PC games as an afterthought, there's no real return of investment.

When the one mediocre system you can get access to has run out of content, spew garbage and beg pathetically in a niche forum for everything else to not exist

Back in the PS2 days 90% of console games didn't come to PC.

Nowadays 90% of consoles games do make it over to PC.

PC is so dead.

Careful, that sounds a bit like ResetEra and the "ban everything that doesn't agree with us" mentality. There's no place for that kind of thinking on a public forum.

Consoles did NOT play Oblivion or GTA IV at native 1080p. Did NOT play at PC's High settings (never even mind Ultra). Did NOT play at 60 fps.

More proof that you don't know the meaning of word FACT, confusing it with your wishful thinking. Consoles have never, and never will be the equal of PC's. No matter what advancements are made in consoles, they already happened on PC, the platform that will always be ahead of the technological curve for consoles to eventually catch up with.

If you can't accept that, never, never type or even think the word 'fact'.

Calvin should be banned because he is ReCloud and got destroyed on ReCloud and went as far as making a thread crying that he had enough of people on here...lmao. BoxRekt is known to be Tgob89; so that's a matter of time as well just like Son-Goku7523 who is already banned...lol. Son-Goku was QuadKnight/Kenshiro which was so blatantly obvious.

Henry...well Henry is just an old ass moron...

Things are as they always were for me. PC for the graphical powerhouses and Nintendo console for the rest. It’s a great combo and the Switch is so convenient for gaming. Also as I’ve done for every Sony console I have the ps4 slim mainly as a media player.
