You know what, I missed one. In addition to obvious gaming advantages, the PC as is extra useful because it lets players research and play their games on a single system. No other platform can say that, because let’s face it: when you read and talk video games, you do it on computers.
Products like Steam attempt to take this integration a step further, including independent strategy guides and news within gaming environment itself. But the choices therein are limited, so I still prefer a good ole web browser connected to a mouse and keyword for never-ending amounts of content. And since researching games is almost as fun as playing them (I said almost), it’s a convenient plus for PC.
Admittedly, its not consoles’ fault that PC is the preferred reading and discussion forum for video games. But that’s the way it is. And PC gaming is better because of it.
Can I get a witness?
