It was "pretty balanced".

For what it's worth, I think PC gaming always used to have a few small advantages. But now we're in the 8th generation of gaming consoles, I think the consoles have finally won over, at least in terms of graphical capabilities.

"For what it's worth, I think…" — I'm not trying to pretend I'm any kind of authority on this.
"I think PC gaming always used to have a few small advantages." — I'm just giving an opinion with no great thought or knowledge behind it, and I'm positive about PC gaming here.
"I think the consoles have finally won over… " — Again, just giving an opinion based on what little I've seen, and this time supporting the other side of the debate by being positive about console gaming.
"… at least in terms of graphical capabilities." Additionally, note that I don't try to pretend that consoles are better than PC in every respect, because they obviously aren't.

So, in a nutshell: I don't try to put forth my opinion as fact, and I give modest support to both sides of the debate. So how is that unbalanced, exactly?

Oh, and I'm 17. [shrug] Is there a problem with that?

That comment was hardly "pretty balanced". How old are you, really? If you think this is bad, you're going need some much thicker skin if you hope to learn anything, especially on the internet. If you make a subjective comment, you're going to start a debate, so prepare to get bombarded. If you start the statement with no solid evidence backing up your claim, brace yourself for a LOT more resistance. If you cannot respond with an objective and/or intellectual answer, you'll lose.

Besides, EVERY VIDEO GAME EVER RELEASED was developed on a PC, so, naturally, it's just better on the home system it was born from. So, technically, consoles are the platforms the games are being ported to.

And what's that supposed to mean?

@Everyone
Wow, I never thought making a small, throwaway comment would trigger the apocalypse. Can you please not nuke me because I made such a small, throwaway comment which actually was pretty balanced, if you'd care to read it.

Because, and here's a shock, you can purpose-build a PC to play games just the same way you can a console. And presumably you will if you are buying/building it to be used for gaming.

If you didn't understand the picture Xhydralisk just posted, by the way, it's a demonstration for XBox One. which isn't actually being run on xbones, it's run off PCs. Because its a demo where they want to show off how good the game looks. So they don't run it off an actual console, they run it off a PC instead.

Well, do pardon my ignorance, but I did actually look at all the different versions of one game (Tomb Raider,) and it was extremely clear that the Xbox 360 and PS3 were okay, Xbox One and PS4 were much much better, and PC was in between.

Also, how can it be, as you put it, literally impossible for consoles to have better graphics than PC?? Don't you think that a system specifically designed to run high-quality game graphics would do better than something designed for a wide range of purposes?

Not to mention PC graphics capabilities were already far beyond the latest consoles before they even came out. Games on PC only look the way they do so they can run on console AND PC when they make the ports.

The only reason why some games that are console exclusive look better and run better is because the devs can optimize it for one spec, rather than the millions that people have for PC.

I'm pretty sure it is literally impossible for consoles to have better graphics than a PC can have, since as far as processing goes they're also computers, just held to a constant, uniform standard that is rarely if ever held close to the maximum possible standards available for PCs (because they would be too expensive to mass produce)

And he's very upset about that. But surely he can't complain about how he's late to the conversation, because that would make him look like a fool on the internet.

Good thing he found a way around that!

Right behind you
Shut the fuck up with the goddamn PC versus Console debates. People can play games on whatever goddamn platform they goddamn please, for fuck's sake! It's a dead issue! Stop beating a dead goddamn horse!
