Intro (Not necessary to read)
Basically, all my life I grew up with PC games, my parents would never actually buy me say a Xbox or Playstation or Gameboy, because...well, you probably all know the main reasons, as well as the fact that I spent enough time on the computer as it was. I slowly evolved from a youngster who just enjoyed playing online, on sites such as addictinggames or newgrounds, into an avid PC gamer. Now, as much as I do enjoy playing xbox or playstation at friends' houses, I can't help but feel as though they are completely pointless consoles...
Main (Should read, and if at any point you see that I'm wrong, please correct me cause I'm going on general knowledge here)
Now, the reason I believe that playstation and xbox are completely pointless gimmicks (so I guess there IS a point, $$$), is that to my knowledge every game available to play on Xbox, playstation, whatever console, is originally made on the computer (or at least most of them), which means that every game (even the xbox or playstation exclusive ones) could simply just be released for PC, and everyone could at this point be used to gaming on the PC. So basically, the xbox and playstation were created simply so that gamers can spend their money buying a new xbox (im just gonna say xbox from hereon out) and $70 games for it, as opposed to just upgrade their PC.
Questions (Have to read in order to reply properly)
So firstly, my question is, who here agrees that while non PC consoles are maybe useful for those without computer experience, and also fun to play, they are overall unnecessary (I like to think of them as appendages torn from the computer and sold at an inconvenient price)
Next part, is that when playing with my friends on their consoles, we often discuss the difference between Xbox and PS3 (don't worry, that's not what this is about). During these discussions, it almost always occurs that the topic of PC gaming slips it's way in (usually caused by me), and what I usually end up having to hear is that "Well yeah, it's sick that you play your games on a system which allows you to play games AND go online easily, watch videos, etc... (not that xbox and ps3 don't let you these days, but not as efficiently), but the PC Community is dying, compared to the way that Xbox and PS3 are thriving"
So lastly, my question is, do you guys agree that PC Gaming/Community is on it's downfall?
