    I'm in a weird place. I really do not think PC gaming has a gigantic advantage anymore.

    It used to be graphics, exclusives, and mods that gave PC such a huge advantage.

    Now it is just mods, and that is only a competitive advantage, the consoles also have competitive advantages too. I'm not talking about what COULD be done with a PC, I'm talking about how I actually use my PC.

    First, my PC runs in ultrawide and the monitor has HDR, but I've never actually played in HDR. The PC runs at a variable frame rate with g-sync and runs about 160fps. It doesn't move to the television or the couch for me. Local streaming sucks. I've actually bought a very expensive HDMI cable and ran it to the TV which I have played on exactly twice....possible but not convenient. One example of It Takes Two and local co-op. Such an amazing experience. I personally am not setup to do couch co-op on PC, so I bought on PS5.

    My PS5 runs most games with HDR, in what looks like 4k, and 60fps when in performance mode. Not every game, but the point is the systems are much closer before when the PC did pretty much what the PC still does and game consoles were like sub 1080p. Take it a step further, and I suspect that many or even most PC only gamers have never played a game in HDR at all? The PS5 controller features are also a big competitive advantage for me, honestly, it is pretty awesome. I think one may be able to use those features on some PC games as well? Not sure.

    My Switch is completely portable. I can take it anywhere at anytime and play Hades on it. That is considerable.

    My PS5 and Switch just have better games, imo. Not saying there aren't a ton of great games on PC. They just aren't as good as a handful of Switch or PS5+PS4 exclusives, IMO. My favorite game from last year was Hades though. I'm not saying PC doesn't have good games, I'm simply saying that consoles generally have most of those games too, plus a big corporation of high quality development making exclusive content for them and them alone(though consoles are slowly losing this competitive advantage as well).

    The PC has "the most" exclusives, but if you look at the quality of that talking point, they really have Crusider Kings 3 and WoW and a bunch of like freeware that still counts I guess. Blizzard was once the 1st party of PC and really elevate the platform over consoles, but not so much anymore. Now, Half-Life Alyx and VR in general are a huge competitive advantage on PC, I'd say bigger than the graphics advantage.

    That said, I have a 2080 so I am good with that and don't need to worry about upgrading for a while, but I just ordered a 5800x and an Asus Tuf Gaming Plus Wifi and 32gb in 2 dimms of b-die 3600mhzcl16. I spent a lot of money upgrade and I'm doing it as we speak, so I still do enjoy gaming on PC and will continue to do so and upgrade my PC for many years.

    Mods have become the premier competitive advantage on PC, and mods are incredible, so PC gamers never had anything to worry about, honestly. Basically things are getting closer between the platforms, and that isn't a bad thing.

    Emulators need BIOS from real consoles to work, so it's a moot point. Piracy has nothing to do with emulation itself.

    Also Nintendo are welcome to port their games to a platform that can effortlessly run them even with major slowdown of emulating hardware, I'll gladly buy them. If they don't want my money, it's only their fault.

    Buying overpriced Chinese tablet with terrible screen and faulty gamepad just to play, like, three games I want in majestic 360-540p resolution and with exorbitant pricing would really be immature. I'd rather play them in native 1080p and with my DS4.

    I have always had Both. FPS belong on Consoles and that is where I exclusively play them as well as ARK. I play WOW on PC and that has been the sole purpose for having one of each. Ill get a PS5 eventually, but my Release PS4 is still going strong 8 years later so I keep playing on it.

    I use my PC mostly for MMOs and games where PC is better.

    For every "big" game I buy it on console. I want it to "just work" and really can't be fucking arsed with dicking about with graphics drivers and random crashes to desktop and settings menus.

    I've got a shitload of PC games, but it's mostly cheap or bundled stuff, and if I want to play that on the OLED TV I use the Shield Pro and stream it.

    I do wish each platform was a bit more open about streaming to each other. It would be great to stream my PS4/PC games to the Switch or the PC games to the PS4 so I wouldn't need all these extra boxes to make things work.

    You'd know if you played them instead of smugly declaring so with nothing to back it up. Not that i expected you to present anything since you don't actually have an opinion

    Yeah, sure. If you say so it must be true, i would totally belive instantly someone with a nintendo avatar and sig and know they would absolutely not be biased.

    I take a, 'why not both' approach... I like to play games. I use whatever device the game is on. Some times it's on the couch... sometimes it's at my desk... rare occasions it's on my phone. I prefer the feel of a controller when playing as opposed to keyboard & mouse as I use the latter at work all day.

    Most nintendo games are either mediocre or just plain bad. However, when they're good, they're incredible like xenoblade and odyssey. I'm sooo biased, huh?

    Just to clarify, you think all Mario platformers are the same game with new content?

    My opinion is that judging a game or series of games without playing them or understanding them is not a good way to review games. I would take that review with a grain of salt.

    You make a compelling argument.

    For me, its also a separation of work and play. I work in QA and spend all day on a console or a mobile device. When I come home, I sit down at the PC to game because the console feels like work. I didn't say that initially because my situation is not all that common.

    They do, but you havent paid for it, so its stealing.

    You also steal all the games you dont pay for but play.

    There is no way around it - its stealing.
