Well, duh. Console kids () who have grown up with a controller in hand might argue, but there's still no better way of playing just about any game in any genre – not just shooters – than the combination of keyboard and mouse. It just works, offering orders of magnitude more precision and speed than fiddly analogue sticks.
That is a matter of opinion, I for example use a gamepad on my PC because I like the gamepad, others might like the keyboard and mouse which can nowadays be used on the consoles.

In fact, the near-HD default res of 1,280x1,024 is very 2001; even a medium rig can handle 1,600x1,200 or more these days.
Every new PS3 & 360 game comes have HD resolution. and they can be run on their respective platform with no problems.
What is the percentage of PC's that can run full HD?

Were you a raw naif, you might be forgiven for thinking that LittleBigPlanet et al single-handedly invented the idea of (nnnggh) 'user generated content'. But guess what? PC gamers have been coding mods (modifications) such as add-ons, total conversions, unofficial levels and all manner of other gubbins for… well, pretty much forever. And then distributing it for free, for the sheer love of it.
New console games are releasing full game editors along with the games, ex Dragon Age: Origins, so we have free mods too.

With the aforementioned higher resolutions and textures, chances are a new PC game already looks better than its console counterpart right now. But even if you can't run it with all the visuals tweaked to the max, processor and graphic cards prices drop so quickly that it's hardly bank-breaking to refit your rig in a year or so, for better graphics and more speed.
That is the most negative thing about the PC, you have to keep upgrading you're hardware inorder to play the games.

Well ofcourse, if you want a better gaming experience you have to pay more.
BTW, didn't you argue that PC gaming is supposedly better because it's supposedly more expensive than console gaming.

Imagine not having to rely on a single, central server such as Xbox Live or PlayStation Network whenever you go online. Imagine not having to suffer downtimes, silly licensing agreements, or daft console-restricting DRM. Oh wait… that's the PC online, isn't it?
One of the best things about my PS3 is the fact that it has the PSN store, and I can use the internet, you can install Linux on it you know.

Okay, this only applies to Xbox Live, but who's to say that Sony might not start charging for PSN as it keeps haemorrhaging money? And yes, Xboxers can use the free Silver service, but really – why would you?
Doesn't Steam do the same thing?

That is the dummest thing written so far.
PC games are released on DVD's, very few are downloadable and even then they adapt to the size of the DVD's.

Cheaters aren't gamers.

PC games such as Vampire: The Masquerade often get unofficial, free, support long after publishers have gone kaput and official support is abandoned, thanks to the tireless efforts of their fans. Bug fixes, enhancements, new hardware support – it's all there.
Well console games get official fixes for they're games.

The geek term for 'old games which you can't buy any more'. There are a huge number of classic PC titles out there from years gone by, and many thousands are available to download, legally, for free.
Oh yes, abandonware, how fun is it to play a 20 year old game?

Well, you only get this on the Xbox, of course, but the last thing you want your gaming machine to do is to completely konk out. At least when a PC goes wrong, it really goes wrong. Like, with fire and everything (possibly).
Gaming PC maintance costs way more that a 360.

BTW, I own a gaming PC and a PS3 and speaking as someone who has both, consoles are better. I'd even prefer a 360 rather that a PC for gaming.

Technological advancement has nothing to do with taste, it's has to do with facts.
The big majority of PC's have hardware that is obsolete compared to consoles. Game producers are forced to adapt their games to that fact and the fact that not all PC's have the same hardware, in contrast to consoles.

it is a fact , that the ps3 is still working on hardware of the year 2006 , any pc above that year is better than any console , not to mention the stuff mentioned before , pc gaming will always and forever prevail the scene.

Maybe you should recheck you're facts, the 2006 PS3 models haven't been manufactured for more than a year now.

Well I asked you before, what is the percentage of PC's that can run all of the PS3 games on full HD?

Whenever a new console generation pops up, PC gaming is labelled as dying, and the label stays until just before the next console generation pops up again. It is only during those few month that that label is removed and after that the label is slapped on the PC again.
The only time PC gaming prevails is when there is no competition.

That's only in countries like Lebanon where the sale of bootleg games is "legal", everyone in my class has either a PS3 or a 360 and there are only a few people that I know that don't.

Systamatics man rou2 ...5ido add 3a2leto
Adam I have a question for you ... when Sony/Microsoft introduces a new console what will happen to PS3 and XBOX 360 ????....THEY DIEEEEE!!!!
whereas in the case of a computer u can always UPGRADE what u already have (eventhough limited) but u still can ...so in the case of consoles u should buy a new console for like 700$ (titzakkaro awwal ma nizlit il PS3 ) whereas in the case of PC ...let's just take a graphics card for example which would cost 150$ at MAX. => long story short ...PC is better.
and if u want to tell me "UPGRADE a PS3" ...there's no such thing since it's simply impossible ...+ games on PC have a large variety of options ...whereas PS3 dont have ****

Forgot to mention: U can't play WoW on consoles (i think) ...and even if u could it wouldn't be much fun as on a PC
