I used to be mostly a pc gamer, started to play more on consoles in ps2/gc/xbox era, consoles became my dominant game time with ps3/360, now PC is a distant 3rd.
Consoles are simply more relaxing to me.
- It's the interface I will always associate with work and stress.
- Email and other distractions are always right there. Some programs will even force your game to the background to grab your attention.
- Keyboard and mouse is not suitable to reclining on a couch.
- No guaranteed performance level, it might run great first, then slow down in a later chapter or after a patch or just because windows is downloading an update or re-indexing or something... (fuck svchost and your cpu/ram usage)
- Specific bugs for your gpu/cpu combination that might not be easily fixed.
- No physical games in stores.
- Fast to turn on, infrequent updates, get into the games fast.
- Easier to move between displays, just need power cable and hdmi present at each location.
- No graphics settings to worry about, just play the game.
- If there's a problem, you bet everyone has that problem and it will be fixed or a workaround is easily found on the internet.
- My taste in gaming is also better aligned with consoles nowadays. Exclusives still matter, they're more polished, better balanced, more complete at launch, heck they actually have a launch instead of this early access or ongoing development.
The last major game I played on PC (my laptop) was Elite Dangerous. I played that for 9 months, yet with patches and upgrades it became unplayable on my laptop, dropping below 10 fps and taking 30 sec to load a map screen. Yet I wouldn't want to play that on console since there is so much downtime you kinda need alt-tab to keep yourself entertained...
