Unless you don't have any freinds, in that case stick w/ your PC only. There's nothing better than a 2 vs. 2 Football, Basketball, Hockey game played in your living room drinking beer with a few freinds. I like internet gaming too especially because I have freinds in many areas of the country. I would much rather have them over at my house if it was possible.
You know what it sucks to try and get four guys gathered around a 19" monitor on a desk, especially when there's very few games that even support 2 players on one computer.
What else are consoles good for?
They are cheaper or equivalent in cost to a new damn videocard for one. Can't upgrade them? Who the hell cares when they cost less than a GeForce2?
Fighting games. What's the best fighting game on the PC? Never mind, cause THEY ALL SUCK!
The best RPG's are on the consoles too. There's a few good ones on the PC, but they are all playing catchup to the likes of the Final Fantasy, Zelda, and Chrono Trigger.
How about light gun games? Which platform has better ones? Let me rephrase that to "NAME A LIGHTGUN GAME ON THE PC WHY DON"T YOU". Time Crisis, Point Blank, and House of the Dead are a blast to play.
Here's another one "Tony Hawk Pro Skater". That games is a blast! I can play it all day and it's a 5+ year old Playstation platform. You just can't get that game or anything like it for the PC.
How about gamepads? The Playstation Dual Shock gamepad outclasses every PC gamepad hands down. Microsoft Sidewinder pales in comparison. I have a Gravis Exterminator Analog and I would throw it right in the trash if my Playstation controller would work on my PC.
Here's another one: My 32" T.V. sure is nice when your hanging out gaming with some freinds to relax around a big old screen like that. How much are 32" computer monitors? I haven't checked lately.
How about those patches? You know how many patches I've downloaded for console games? Guess.
That's because the games are usually DONE, FINISHED, COMPLETE, when you hand over the money for them. there's one huge list of PC games that hit storeshelves not even playable. You have to download a patch as soon as you bring it home.
I could go on, but I think I've made the point that there's definately good reasons for owning both.
