    Pc and console both have their benefits. Should've added an option for both. No need to pick one over the other.

    In terms of raw performance, customization, & optimization PC by far. However, in terms of price to performance ratio - Console. I've built my own PCs since high school and currently run a i5, GTX 1070, 16gb DDR4 with NVMe & Sata SSDs. It utterly destroys what a console can do, but I could have also bought every current gen console and some games for the cost; this is also before adding the cost of my mechanical keyboard, mouse, and 120hz IPS monitor...

    A low-end gaming PC easily costs $500'ish before peripherals. I know it can be done for cheaper buying refurbished & used, but a new console is $300, whereas my GPU alone cost a little over $500...

    you can get an excellent AMD cpu for under $200 and it will perform just as well as intel or better. 16G Ram is not all that expensive these days either. GPU is the big cost. But I found the AMD quad compute and quad graphic chips to work quite nicely. You can build a fairly decent gaming rig for $500. Not mind blowing but better than average

    Neither. I vote Iphone games because I can play them at work.

    I don't know what you mean by 'better' but looking at this objectively, I will make three sweeping arbitrary statements.

    1. You can do more with your PC but it generally costs more.

    2. I have a preference for different peripherals for different games (kb+m for most games that require aiming, gamepad for flying, driving or Mortal Kombat)

    3. Platform-exclusive titles are disgusting.

    • AMD can beat Celerons; can outperform / break par with low-end budget i3s; don't stand a chance against i5s...
    • 16gb RAM is cheap, but the money is better allocated on GPU - at or around $500, RAM isn't going to be a bottleneck
    • Better than average what? $500 is an entry level machine that's better than a console if someone doesn't mind spending the money for it...
