    PC's because in the end even your 'exclusive' console games are probably gonna end up being played with an emulator at some point or 're-mastered' and re-sold elsewhere like Steam.

    One day the exclusives will die and PC will reign superior.

    Performance, customization, free online play, emulators, DRM-free games, mods, near-limitless backward compatibility...definitely PC if I had to pick only one. The one thing it's missing is of course physical media, but even that's not quite what it used to be, since only Switch games seem to retain value any more.

    Pfft, casual. A real god gamer can do both of those things while playing two different video games and watching Netflix all at the same time. It's called multitasking, git gud. /s

    PC is better than console in most ways, but:
    Exclusives
    Cheaper
    Not as hard to set up (you WILL run into problems in some games on PC)
    Also i like playing in my couch I don't like playing all my games in a desk

    It's pretty wild how PC is better than console in almost every way but nothing beats playing a real snes on your couch with an old CRT

    1440p monitor + 4K TV + small CRT, best of all worlds. :D

    You sound like my girlfriend, dude ('I' M NOT SHOUTING. I'M JUST STATING MY OPINION AS FACT '). ;)

    Anyway... From the comments, I think I'm joining the majority in saying I want both. PC doesn't have that ' generations ' bullshit and just plays everything (including past console games if you count emulators... Which I do), there's a much larger library and it doesn't clog up the television (there's a reason I keep my WiiU around).
    Consoles usually have better games (granted : I only care for Nintendo, but I presume other gamers make the same arguments for their choice) and they're plug and play. No need to rebind keys, have umpteen versions of .Net of directx installed or weird crashes because your computer uses different hardware than most other people.

    So... This poll really needs a'both 'option (and I don't know why two people vote for masturbation instead, but apparently that's also a thing :P)

    Used to be a hybrid gamer, switched to full-on pc recently(although every now and then I play a few indies on my switch or I'll play a bit of pokemon on my 3ds)

    Erm... Your signature disagrees with your choice. Or is your favorite gaming system unworthy to be mentioned among your cool secondary choices? :P
