Depends on the situation, I suppose. Sometimes, there are games that require your absolute focus and attention, and a good portion of PC peripherals (good gaming mouse, keyboard, etc.) can really enhance your ability, or at least, give you more flexible options than other users.
Other times, you just want to sit down and kill a few hours on a game like Just Cause 3, in a comfy lounge chair putting Di Ravello's troops to rest. On top of that, there are always console and PC exclusives to line up.
For me, I'm pretty sure it all started on a console (PS1, with Point Blank gun-shooting game) and the love just grew from there.
More than just Pong, we're talking early electronic versions of American football, a spooky house, skiing and other unique ideas of the time.
From what I remember, the Odyssey, the first home VG console, sold over 300,000 units... in the early 1970s. The console cost 100 bucks, on an average wage of $4 US an hour. And it could've been more had the advertising not been screwed up by the people in charge.
Not even 50 years ago, and we've gone from that, to what we have now. Reflect on that just for a moment, and see if you aren't impressed.
I'm personally a pc gamer, i like being able to mod games and i much prefer a mouse to a game pads control sticks. That being said it's harder and harder to keep up with PC gameing and the newer graphics. course haven't a 6 year old computer don't help Xp.
