Was just wondering what the preferences are for gaming between a PC or using a console? Just read a really great blog article at another forum about someone who was particularly into using a PC for gaming:

I do most of my video gaming on PC, though I have a PS3, WiiU and some older consoles. I've always found PC keyboard/mouse interfacing better than consoles, and, quite often the gaming performance is better (whether it's graphics or actual game play). That said, there are certain types of games that consoles are better for playing, like racing sims (imo). I can't see myself shelling out the cash for a current generation console system; they're just not worth the cash when I can just upgrade my computers to play better games, AND have something to cover all my computing needs at the same time.
That said, the best games don't use screens or electronics at all. Pen and paper RPGs and board games are the superior medium!
