Top Ten Reasons Why PCs Are Better Than ConsolesPC is superior to consoles for many reasons, here's the top ten reasons why PCs are superior to consoles. If you prefer consoles, no worry. There's also a list for you. (Top Ten Reasons Why Consoles Are Better Than PCs) I didn't make that list but you can look at it.
I was wanting to do this list for a while but only wanted to make it when I could make it well.
Note: I'm not a PC elitist, I just prefer PC over consoles.
The Top Ten
It's extremely rare to see mods get released for consoles but then look at the PC... There's probably like a thousand Minecraft mods out there for PC. Skyrim also has a shedload of mods out there. It's the fact that some of the PC community are about improving the games that already exist releasing free mods that the developers of the original game make easy to install. - Cazaam
There have been a few games recently that allow you to download mods on consoles, but PC will always have more. I really hope they bring mods to consoles.
Mods can sometimes be better than the game... the community is just amazing! I mean where else can I make everyone in skyrim nude?
Seriously? , are mods the only thing people care about for games now? - B1ueNew
I prefer to use PC rather than console,but no,it's not cheap,specially here in Brazil.
This is one fact you can't deny console fanboys, PC has Steam where you can get the games that would normally cost a console user £80 / $110 for the full game (including DLC), on Steam the same game may go to PC users for even less than half of that with DLC included in the actual game. There is also quite a few free games out there for PC. Many of these are actually good. - Cazaam
Cheaper but more time taking, Its harder to find a good PC and the time to take all the parts too - B1ueNew
Not only can a PC perform MILES better than a PS4, but you can also surf the internet how it's supposed to be surfed, create videos, record gameplay footage, everything.
Not only do pc's have more freedom but they also have better performance and graphics.
Both the PS4 and Xbox One use x86 architecture. The same x86 architecture that is found in present day PC's. The difference is that you can't customise your console or you may risk having it banned by the company if they find out. - Cazaam
The PS4 and Xbox One both use x86 architecture. The same can be found in many PC's as the x86 is PC architecture.
You can have your console banned if you modify it. If you modify your PC, you're fine and good to go. No worries because your PC is indeed a Personal Computer. - Cazaam
I love independently developed games because they're not likely to be a shameless cash grab for a company like Rollercoaster Tycoon 4 Mobile was, by the way, that is the worst game of 2014, I hate it and will stab at it any chance I get. Indie Games tend to have lots of effort put into them. Want to know a well known indie game? Oh I don't know... Minecraft? Yes! That was an indie game. Many indie games are growing up and show a lot of promise, Best example I can think of is Next Car game and BeamNG Drive. - Cazaam
PC wins on this category - marmalade_skies
Those are the worst games
People who play on console love to bring up the exclusives argument, but in reality PC has a lot more worth while exclusives in the form of indie games. If indie games aren't your thing pc also has other exclusives - swifter43
...And say hello to having to manually perform an expensive upgrade every five years! - Glorious_Nintendo_Master_Race
Or ten for the 7th generation - cdxtreme
Marmalade you dumbass, who tf is gonna buy a completely new PC when you can just buy better parts?
Same with PC. Unless you're using your 2002 PC still. - marmalade_skies
COnsoles are starting to get this way now but for what? PC's have always been used for other than gaming. Record the game footage on a pc, edit the video on a PC to remove all of the rubbish footage where nothing happens etc. PC's can do much more than consoles. - Cazaam
No, pc are not for gaming actually
Computers have much better graphics than the crap consoles that are coming out.
The one and only advantage!
If you have a strong PC. Statistics have shown that most PC gamers don't. - marmalade_skies
So? a game is not better for it's graphics, also the ps4 neo is coming out and that will kick pc's ass
Keep dreaming. PCs are constantly evolving and will always be ahead of consoles. - PCEnthusiast
Most of these being indie games as these are rare to see on consoles, only the most popular ones end up on consoles where they turn out inferior. Just look at Minecraft for a good example. - Cazaam
True. But nobody's heard of them. I can';t have a conversation with my friends about Europa Universalis like I can with Uncharted or Zelda - marmalade_skies
Dude you are flat out wrong pc has way more exclusives than Nintendo ever wil
Um, Nintendo has the most exclusives out of PlayStation, Xbox and PC actually - B1ueNew
What I mean about this is that you own all the parts in your PC. Consoles, not so much the case. If your console breaks down you have to send it back to the company for repair to Sony or Microsoft and companies like that will charge you a lot because they can. If your PC breaks down, you can replace the part that is broken for the minimal cost of buying the new part and you're good to go. There is also PC repair businesses that are rather small and these won't charge you an arm and a leg to get the part fixed. - Cazaam
I have of all that iove my pc too much so there pc is better than any other console
What? who made this list? what a stupid person, you have to be really retarded to say this thing, bad argument, so if I buy a ps4, it's not mine...?
Yeah, tell that to the guy who has 5 siblings
Spoiler, that guy is ME
Ebay and bargain bin sales - marmalade_skies
There's a lot of sales on The Playstation store - B1ueNew

This is because rather than building Little Billy a brand new PC, it's easier to go out and by a console for him. The more mature gamers tend to own PC's and this explains why the PC community isn't crammed full of ignorant 12 year olds shouting expletives in your headset after you killed them in Call of Duty - Cazaam
Hardly anyone is actually like that
And I'm 12 and don't play Call of Duty or use a mike.
Is this some type of joke? - B1ueNew
When consoles get to the end of their lifespan a new one comes out to take it's place, but for PCs they evolve, update their hardware and still remain.
PCs have been around for years and aren't going away any time soon.
Actually not, they're the same since 2007
But we get free games ever month though and cloud storage - B1ueNew
Nintendo is about to add an online paywall to their consoles, so what better time than now to switch to PC? - Dominicmgm
PC isn't always more expensive.
Did the stupid one who did this list relaize that a pc is more expensive and is not worth it?
You can game on 4k on the xbox one x - Glorious_Nintendo_Master_Race
They are, but they are just trying to be mediocre pcs. It explains marmalade_skies response.
Except more accessible and cheaper in price - marmalade_skies
Whtf? that's not true
Lord Gaben is almighty
So you got your new PC for 500 bucks which is the price of the Xbox One, crank it up to high settings with 1080p with ease and still run at 60 frames per second. Consoles don't have these options, you're stuck playing with inferior graphics. It's not only graphics that make a game so this isn't any higher. - Cazaam
Yesterday I was playing Grand Theft Auto V and my dad caught me blowing a person's head. I am banned playing it now. Consoles with their big T.V. screens take away privacy.
While I feel safe while playing mature games on PC with my headphones on
Steam Sale. Humble Bundle. Shall I give more reasons?
Grand Theft Auto for 60$. 75% off steam sale. 15$! Praise lord Gaben!
But there will eventually exist emulators to play games for older consoles. That's happening to the PS4 and Switch right now.
Emulators are the best thing to happen since sliced bread!
Not EVERY. Some games are exclusive to consoles
Seriously? Not on this list? This is one of the major factors of why PCs are superior compared to consoles. - PCEnthusiast
Idiotic console peasants who say "PC has no games" make me laugh. - PCEnthusiast
Just like with game controllers this is a subjective preference, however one thing that anyone with eyes should note is that keyboards have a lot more options for keys than game controllers, and the mouse has much bigger range of motion than any analogue stick ever has.
And you can use a controller if your stupid (on pc)
No, consoles have exclusives, pcs are nothing
Any you say? , ok try running Breath of the Wild or Spider-man 2018 for a cheap price - B1ueNew
Any? - marmalade_skies
Even if it hasnt realesd for it! you can emulate consoles
ex: ps4 emulator just but your disk in your pc with emulator it work or if it doesn't worked use an iso and use a console controller or a pc one or use the superior keyboard and mouse
The Xbox one may have backwards compatibility now, but still it does not cover all previous-generation games. PC still reigns superior in backwards compatibility by far. - PCEnthusiast
Can't PC play really old games and new games? There is no "Backwards compatibility" Since there isn't such thing like the PC 2, or the PC 500, There's no sequels to PCs just different types that play the same games - B1ueNew
Yeah there's a bunch of free games on PC, The free PC games on steam are the only ones I play too in fact - B1ueNew
True, Steam you can change your username for free if you make a really cringeworthy username, I made a cringeworthy username on my PS4 and I want to change it so bad! - B1ueNew
