>Is PC gaming the best?
It really depends on what you want, and what is your setup? Let's see if we can compare some setups:
Console setup Basic (TV+Controllers):
You can easily play couch-co-op games, watch videos, listen shit. Thats it and it works. Very chill. (old consoles after jailbreaking can use emulators, a nice bonus.) Sadly, limited range of games.
Console setup MAX (multiTV+audiomixers+Controllers+KBM+Kinect+VR+DancePads+Guitars+whatever):
You're going to need a PC and additional hardware to set this up, but it's gonna be great. It's essentially a really shit PC setup. Sadly, limited range of games. Nintendo is not like this, but I'm not going to make this post 3x size to address the anomaly.
PC setup Basic (Monitor+KBM on a desk in a corner):
Play games while you listen a podcast and keep that important work related window minimized, because you will get back to it soon(tm). Play MMORPGs. Shitpost on forums while you watch a video of a clown dancing knee deep in mud while playing megaman X5. Top tier multitasking. Sadly, too many games, and no couch.
PC setup Advanced (HighEndPC+multiMonitor+KBM+Controllers+DP-HDMI-Wireless Link to living room TV):
Play anything on a couch, play anything on desk, play anything on any old console. Tweak shit, get mods to console games, play Saturn games, torrent new exclusive console games with emulator patches, go nuts. Sadly, too many games.
PC setup MAX (There is no max, PCs are too modular to make a max, but let's try something. SuperPC+everything)
Play anything on desk, on couch, in the swimming pool, in the garden on a phone, all wireless, play on a 180-degree home theater, play games that need RTX-cards on an android phone through screen link apps. Sadly, still, way too many games.
Basically PC is superior in every way. But consoles have a specific place in the world, they are for those people who want to take the easy route. Nothing wrong with that, I love taking the easy route in many things. Having a chrome-tier laptop and the latest console is the best choice for many, and it's not wrong, it's just a choice.
The most common setup is turning out to be: Special PC in living room couch setup with Large TV, wireless controllers and the system is completely hidden. It's like having every possible emulated console, arcade and PC game in one system ready to go, without the mess of wires and multiple consoles and cables and controllers. Ironically, this is what the "steambox" or whatever it was called, was supposed to be, but it failed, because of shit hardware, software and marketing.
