We're stepping into volatile territory with this week's question by asking whether or not PC gaming is really superior to console. Why might such a question be deemed toxic? Well, let's face it, the Internet isn't short on brand supporters (aka fanboys) waiting to declare their fierce loyalty to a gaming platform of choice.
But hey, it's an interesting debate when taken seriously, so let's give it a shot. In the past, PC gaming might have been considered an adult arena, a more grown-up environment for seasoned gamers, whereas consoles targeted a younger audience.
Those lines have blurred, and today, many of the same games are available on either platform, and from an architectural standpoint the various machines have more in common than ever before. There are still obvious degrees of separation - price, available games, graphical quality, ease of use and peripheral choices come to mind - but given the current state of affairs, let's hear your opinion: is PC gaming really superior to console? Let us know your thoughts, and your reasons, in the comments section below.
