Top 5 Reasons PC Gaming Is Better than Console Gaming

PC gaming will always be superior to console gaming. The gaming industry is constantly pushing the limits of graphics, cpu and ram power, and the only machine that can keep up with industry demands is the PC.

Here are the Top 5 Reasons PC Gaming Is Better than Console Gaming: (Industry, PC, PS3, Tag Invalid, Tech, Xbox 360)

Good list BUT......

5. Graphics: This is Next Gen Graphics

4. Use what ever KB/M, controller, flight stick, Hydraulic set-up, simulator, wheel and peddles, motion controls, or brain sensor you want.

3. Mods, Free DLC, High Texture paks really add to the gaming experience

2. Online Play: Private Dedicated Servers with Administrators guarantee No hackers and you can customize your gameplay how you and your crew want.

Not regionally locked so i enjoy kicking but on Russian or European servers.

1. Build it yourself within your budget to the specs you want and upgrade it when you want. ( Put a sticker and some lights on it so it looks different from everyone else's).

0. Emulator (every Gaming PC is a Wii or lesser) and if your PC savvy you can use your PC to make cash to pay for itself!

consoles have advantages too like like plug n play, Sony Exclusives, Trophies, and Microsoft points.

just enjoy your games no matter the platform.

Why did you link to a video that's private? I wanted to see it.

That's before mods. I can make Ass Effect 2 look amazing with enb, texmod and fxaa injectors. Something console will never do

Gotta love laptops. Came home from class one day to find 3 of my roommates playing TF2 in the living room on their school laptops.

That problem is avoidable :P

I go to a Lan party almost every weekend.

they vary from a few friends at a house to hundreds of people on a college campus playing for prizes or just mingling with drunk Gamer chicks.

Other than that I usually Have a game on one or two screens while i have video Skype on another with my friends.

PC lets you play and see your friends but keep your carpet clean, gas in your car, and a fridge full of drinks. :)

This haven't been true this gen. Damn I some times miss those times me and my buddies used to play Halo splitscreen. Good times, splitscreen gaming has been mostly forgotten this gen though.

I play Halo, Gears, Portal2 and L4D2 split screen all the time... more games need it implemented so I can mix it up when I have a guest playing!

It's console and pc gaming that is not the problem, it's the twatty owners who run their mouths about which is better. I don't care if this console has this or if pc has that; how is the game itself?

Lmao "twatty"
But the people you mentioned need to know their roles and simmer down... I totally agree with your post... But "twatty", Im definitely calling someone that at work lmao

PC gaming is better, tech wise, and mod wise...

But most of the games I play are not for PC... Resonance of Fate, Dragon's Dogma, BlazBlue Continuum Shift, Devil May Cry 3 (It's buggy on PC, horrible port), Ninja Gaiden.

PC does not get very many action games or JRPG's, so it's not my most used system, I have a gaming PC. I have Portal 2, Diablo 3, DMC4, Civ 5 and a handful of others... But it just seems to be missing my favorites.

@one2thr Hahaha, I have comedian Jim Norton to thank for that. Yeah, but I do agree with you too though. I understand that certain machines are better than others in terms of performance, but with the state of gaming in general now, we really can't afford to split up the community who just enjoy games. It's kinda destroying gaming when it seems like more people now are having more hatred for certain platforms just because.

Guys, I’ve been here for several years and these articles pop up, not as bad as they did. But play WTF you want. I have been playing PC games since the C-64 and console games since the Atari 2600. I still love my PC and there is nothing on the console that I like. But it isn’t because of the console, it is because I like strategy games, MMOs, mouse/keyboard. If a console did that, f&^% a PC. I play games, I don’t have sex with the hardware.
