But....a PC does every single thing better than a console. It's completely closed the gap on things that consoles used to do better, and even exceed them in many areas: for example, the time it takes from inserting a disk to starting to play a game has vastly increased on consoles to the point where it's faster on PC - they have lost the "plug and play" benefit completely. You can easily play PC games on a couch with a controller now.
That's why people can argue that PCs are a better medium unironically at this point. PC Master Race is used ironically and unironically at the same time, to inflame the ire of console fanboys.
Attacking the language used has become a pathetic tactic growing all the more popular over the last few years, and you know the kind of people using it. When you can't argue with facts, just attack the language used and say the people using it are wrong! Then you don't even have to attack their actual argument because they're meanie heads.
I disagree. Consoles still have one major advantage:
If I buy a game for a specific game-console, that console will play it.
If I buy a game for PC, my PC might not
. And then I'll have to figure out what of my specific build of PC is interfering with the game's software, figure out how to fix it, and possibly have to buy some new hardware.
There's no guarantee, upon purchasing a game, that it'll run on your PC. Yes, PCs are getting a heck of a lot better about it than they used to be, but with a console you can be sure
that it'll run. Eventually. Once you've finished installing, downloading any updates, and informed your gaming console that no, you don't want to search Bing or watch Netflix, you actually want to use a gaming console to game
