I find it difficult to take anyone seriously if they insist that one side is unequivocally better than the other in the discussion about consoles vs. PC. Both sides cater well to different kinds of gamers, and I try to include a mix of both in my life (although I've been more console lately because Switch has seen a lot of really great games this year).
- Consoles: cheaper hardware but overall more expensive games and pay to be able to online gaming;
- PC: more expensive hardware but overall cheaper games and free online gaming;
In 10 years a console gamer will eventually spend much more than a PC gamer when putting all the expenses together.
