    Grew up with console gaming and I like the feeling of owning physical copies than digital ones so they have resale value if I'd ever want to sell them.

    Sure but games on PC may have DRM protection, may need to be installed through Steam/Origins/etc and then there are those which are no longer with certain Windows OS versions. So you see, console gaming is easy to pick up and play without any worries about this and that.

    EDIT: Typo ~ seem to see.

    This pack and Humble Bundles means my Steam account is slowly filling up with backlog.

    Leave him be, clicking install on steam is way too damn difficult for him, he prefers to manually switch games using discs then wait few hours for install and patching to be done.

    btw os versions remark is epic, i won't even bother to mention i have better backwards compatibility towards console games than his console ;P

    Good luck selling a physical PC game second-hand. The vast majority of physical releases have DRM that makes the discs aviyt as useful as a drink coaster in the hands of anyone other than the original purchaser.

    Who needs to resell? You can buy PC games at half their MSRP on release day. Two months later, still costs $60 on consoles, can get it for $15 on PC.

    Cost ends up evening out, it's just a matter of whether you can afford the hardware up front or if you want to get taken for a ride in software costs over the long term.

    Not so.

    The games I've been playing don't require either to be installed on the hard drive or receive patches/updates, just straight to the game I go. Yeah, I do prefer to switch discs (or game cards).

    I've tried to run really old apps/games on Windows 10 and didn't have any success, so I suppose I'd need a virtualbox for them but when it comes to that then I'm not interested.

    Console games have value whilst PC physical games don't really have much or any, except for some.

    That's true. PC games are much cheaper than the counterparts of the console editions but another issue with PC games are the really bad ports such as Arkham Knight.

    Let's say a new game gets released, my current desktop machine is unable to run it or at a decent performance, what happens? I'd need to upgrade. With consoles I'm always guaranteed that it'll work although visually it'll be inferior and the framerate may be inconsistent/less than appealing.

    They do but it's easier to deal with, imo.

    PC games aren't really much about reselling, that's a console games thing.

    P.S. When's Red Dead Redemption coming out for PC? Oh wait, sorry guys. :3

    Hoo boy, it's the age old Console vs PC debate again.
    Huh, I was almost certain that XBO/PS4 games needed to be installed to the HDD these days, and anything with online has mandatory patches.

    How's that XCOM 2---oh... ;D

    PC is the objectively better platform, better resolution, mods, framerate, support for the games, etc. But console gaming is fine too, it's a personal preference, and many find it easier, that's okay. Let's all just shake hands and rejoice in great free games!

    @Chary I've not yet jumped to the PS4 ship as I'm still waiting for the new Uncharted to be released and more PlayStation exclusives, plus also would like to get PS4 at a cheaper price.
