Console gaming has become worse than PC gaming

ConsoleGamingI love console games. I was utterly enthralled when I first picked up the Atari 2600’s joystick and played Asteroid. I kept playing games ever since.

What’s not to love? Pop any game in and you know it’ll work. I can relax on the couch and enjoy a console game for hours on end without any problems.

I like PC gaming too. I started playing PC games during the 1990s during the heyday of Diablo II and Counter-Strike, but I noticed that PC gaming is quite bothersome. I had to deal with driver updates, hardware configurations, overall compatibility, and the cost of the PC itself.

Unlike a good gaming PC, which cost an arm and a leg, the video game console itself is more affordable. Console games may not be as pretty as PC games, but I can easily start playing without any hassle.

And then the current generation happened.
