Consoles had merit when the overhead of running an operating system was very high. Now all consoles have full blown operating systems and frameworks and are just less powerful PCs. I would put my cutoff at the PS2 era.

I prefer a one size fits all, predefined definition of what gaming "should be".

I like the fact that anyone with a good idea can make a game I can play, and not just those who can pay off Microsoft or Sony to allow my content to exist. I personally prefer a customized experience where I can actually map my own controls as opposed to choosing what I'll get from a list. I like how I can play games from my childhood on the same system I'm playing modem games on as well. Most of all, I'm not scared to put in extra work for a better experience.

Really no troubleshooting either. At some point with a PC you will have an issue that you'll have to fix or may not be able to fix.

I use an A65400 with a GT610 for LoL and am building a FX6300/GTX660

I own PS4 and XB1 and i will NEVER not own a console from one of the big two.

PC gaming is cool but the community cant replicate the feel that the consoles bring.

Well, I have a nice PC now that I can afford one but growing up I was always a console peasant. If I had dismissed consoles just because PC was superior, I wouldnt have had some of my best gaming experiences. Consoles are great, they make gaming affordable and accessible. It was the current gen where I really lost interest in consoles though. They keep upgrading them because they are not powerful enough, they are nothing more than limited PC's. Im not seeing exciting exclusives or peripherals anymore(excluding nintendo's output), I really dont see the reason for them any more. Decided to skip buying a console and save for a PC instead, best decision I ever made.

25, maybe. Whenever they got patches, online multiplayer, hard disks, installation requirements, multiple hardware configurations.

It was when I got DooM shareware from the local Winn-Dixie in the early nineties. I popped that thing in my 386 and had my mind totally blown. I'd played Wolfenstein 3D, but DooM was a completely different beast.
