Console Vs. PC Gaming

gameflyGaming has come a long way since its humble beginnings, and these days, you have the option to play video games in many different way. For people who are always on the go, playing games on their mobile phone has become quite popular. Games such as Pokemon have become quite addictive, with millions of users playing the game daily. There have even been cases where people got into car accidents because they were playing video games on their phone while driving.

For my part, I like to play video games at home since you can play better games when you play on a PC or game console. Many people wonder which is a better platform to play games on, and I will try to answer this question in this article. Of course, if you can afford to have both, then you will have the best of both worlds. While many games are available on both platforms, the fact is that there are also a good number of games that can only be played on a PC or only be played on a game console.

First, let's start with gaming on PCs. This can be a great solution, and in most cases you will save money since you're using your computer as both a PC as well as a gaming platform. You will need one thing to turn your computer into a gaming rig, and that is a high quality video card. The best ones cost about as much as a game console, setting you back anywhere from $200 or $300. But depending on the games you play, you may be able to get away with a slighly less expensive card. For example, if you play mostly MMORPGs, you can probably do fine with a card just north of $100. One thing you should look into is buying a high quality, used card from places like Ebay. You'll save some money and still be able to get a top-notch card if you buy something that's lightly used.

The other option, of course, is to buy a game console. You have many choices should you decide to do this, but the two consoles I'd recommend are Playstation and Xbox. Both will cost around $300, and come with gaming controls which some people prefer over using the keyboard, which is generally the way people play games on PCs. You will generally have a greater number of games you can play on game consoles. What's more, if you join a gaming membership site like Gamefly, you can rent as many games as you want. This is why I recommend a Gamefly membership for anyone who has a console, and the good news is that you can obtain a free trial by going to You can also rent from kiosks like Redbox. Therefore, if gaming is a serious hobby for you, then getting a game console would probably be the way to go.
