Regardless, I've never had problems playing any console games.
PC gaming can be a hassle when shit randomly doesn't work. I tried to run Civ V for the first time in a while the other day and it wouldn't run like it used to. It took me 2 hours to fix it and by that time it was too late to start a game. Had I just played a console game, I would have been playing for those 2 hours.
>>
>>322644452

For me PC gaming has never been a hassle.

If a game isn't working, I just install the latest patch.

It's a meme back to the time where windows was absolute shit and kept crashing. That completely went away with 7. Maybe even vista but I never used it.

not him but come on, comparing how easy it is to start a game on a PC vs. a console? You may as well argue for consoles because of how much simpler it is to just buy a console for ~$400 than it is to spend >$600 for parts that you have to put together.

Here's your unbiased estimate

PC = 8 seconds

1 second
>Wait for desktop to load
5 seconds because SSD
>Double click shortcut to game on desktop
1 second to find game, 1 second to enter game
>Longass cutscene
0 seconds because you removed it with a mod


Console = 20 minutes 14 seconds MINIMUM
or 20 minutes 24.9 seconds MAXIMUM


>Console
>Press power button
2 seconds because your couch is further from TV
>Switch TV on
0.5 seconds
>Wait for TV to come on
2.5-5 seconds
>Switch channel to channel game is on
2-3 seconds
>Wait for logo/intro
5-10 seconds
>Navigate menus to find game

It is tho.
Incompatibility issues with graphic cards, drivers.
Issues with older games running on modern systems (newest OS not compatible with older games)

With a console all you need to do is to place the disc on the disc drive and play.
No worries if the game is going to work on your unique system

Of course PCs are more of a hassle, they're more complex.
Now does that mean I would trade my triple monitor setup to play the same games on a single monitor at 30fps @ 720p, no. I don't my tweaking things a few extra if I get a vastly superior experience.

I literally watched an 11 minute video while building my PC. Worked perfectly fine. A person does deserve to be called retarded for not being able to do something so mundane and basic. I'm genuine when I say that an 8 year old with any basic knowledge of the internet or youtube(most of the 8 year olds now a days) could build a computer with relative ease.
>>
>>322656353
Troubleshooting a console is probably easier as it is just a console. That's what it's sole purpose is. You know what a computer is supposed to do? Various tasks to support a wide audience. Work, Games, Facebook and general Web searching, programming and software development. Windows was created/updated to make a wide amount of people desire to use it. Who the fuck would buy an Xbox to browse the internet? Or program? Or have an Xbox because their job required it? My point is, more problems come with objects that offer a variety of ways to use it.

Laptops aren't a better computer experience if that's what you're saying. You have to keep a separate mouse and keyboard with you unless you can bear the terrible trackpad and laptop keys. Battery life is like 3 hours unless you set all your settings to minimum and make everything unpleasant. If all you're using it for is being able to browse the internet or write papers on the go, you might aswell just carry around a phone, because a phone can do all that just fine with an attachable keyboard that rolls up to fit in your pocket, their battery lasts longer than 3 hours, and you don't need to carry it around in a backpack or purse like a fag.

That's not what i'm saying at all. I was saying why spend money on a laptop and console, when you could get a decent desktop for the combined price of both, that could provide a better computer and gaming experience. One device that does both of those things vastly better, for the same amount of money.

600$ desktops are fine... if you only plan on playing MOBAs and runescape, which anyone without shit taste would not do. A 600$ desktop couldn't even play witcher 3 on medium settings without it dropping below 60 fps. An 800$ pc maybe could max out witcher 3, but you'd still be getting frame drops in some areas with lots of activity. 1000$ is really what's needed to be able to play every game on the current market at max settings, and the hardware requirements are quickly rising, so a 1000$ pc isn't even future proofed.

I am a PC gamer but you are assuming that they turned off the channel the vidya was hooked up to, in that case you have to do it with the monitor as well. Also if your going to assume that the monitor is already on for PC, you have to say that the TV was already on for console. Let's be fair here.

You faggots want the truth? People are fucking lazy, and have different priorities in life. That doesn't mean they aren't smart enough to build a computer. Being able to build a PC doesn't make you any sort of technician.
