You can connect a PC to a HDTV too and play in FULL-HD and 8/16 AA instead of shit-tier upscaled 720p(if now lower) and jaggies everywhere. You can connect your 1337 surround system to it too and even sit on a sofa while playing using a wireless gamepad.

Averall PC is superior, but you have to look which games you like, because consoles have a lot of nice exclusives.
I stick to both since I like strategy and fps games and love exclusives like bayonetta, mgs3/4 and a lot of rpgs.

I don't like the PC simply dues to it's fanboys.

Look at Left 4 Dead 2 or Modern Warfare 2.

Do a large majority of people play like that?

I've never been into PC gaming. It's still expensive, but when I was growing up it was thousands of dollars to afford something that could play Castle Wolfenstein. So I grew up on consoles like everyone else and that's what I still play. Hell, my parents spent less buying my NES, SNES, Genesis, N64, and PS2 then my neighbor did on his first PC back in the early 90's. He paid $3,200 for it and now it's likely sitting in a landfill. All my old consoles still work and are ready to go (except the SNES and Genesis which were given away as gifts long ago)

Tbh I grew up playing pc. My first "console" was a gba which I got probably shortly after it's release. I missed out on the ps1, n64and early ps2 days (but caught up to them later) and in that time played on the crappy windows 98. Thing is, I loved it! Any game at the time which I bought would run on it fine and I had great fun for ages at the age of 4 all the way to 12ish and then consoles like gamecube drew me in especially since new pc games were released that only worked on newer pcs.
That's how I gave up on pcs. I'd have to upgrade to play the new games and at the loss of compatibility for older games! Consoles since have been the best option for me. I've got nothing against pc gaming or gamers. In fact there are loads of pc games I want but really, consoles save me time, effort and money.

You missed out on previous gens of consoles? Well let me give you the run down on which ones were the best of their gen.

3rd gen: NES (obviously)

4th gen: Genesis (this console is the shit)

5th gen: N64 & Sega Saturn (I never was a fan of the original Playstation)

6th gen: PS2

7th gen: Xbox 360

The Genesis was a good system but better than the SNES? Pure blasphemy Evil or Very Mad

N64 and Saturn? No, just 64. The Saturn was no competition.
