It's cheaper and better. New consoles just kinda suck.
I still play old consoles sometimes though.

1. PCs have the biggest game library
2. PCs have more control options (KB. Mouse, KB+M, gamepad, wheel, joysticks, headsets, etc)
3. PCs have all genres available, meaning bigger variety of games. Consoles don't and thus suffer from this.

I wish I was a PC gamer. Consoles are ok but I will always look at Steam sales in envy. Getting a Gaming rig built in a third world ****hole such as this one where I live is impossible as there are no parts available. You're forced to buy off the shelf from Alienware and the likes, and pay $2k and up.

When/if I ever move to the US you can bet, one of my first endeavors will be buliding my own gaming PC.
It is the beginning of my end. I've raised you well, GameFAQs. Now go, make me proud. *sniff* - CjayC 7/19/2007

I'm unsure where you live but you might be able to pull the same trick Canadians do.

Pick a nearby country, and order your parts and have them mailed to a mailbox there. UPS and others often offer pick up service.
Then, once everything is there, just drive and pick up your stuff yourself. Naturally you need a passport to go across a border.

Better graphics and more h-games. IMO those are the only reasons. And they are two very good reasons.

Tons of reasons. In order

Better exclusive games
Better versions of multiplatform games
Steam controller
Better performance (can turn down visuals and don't get stuck with sub 60 fps)
Backwards compatibility forever
Mods
Options (visual, performance, controllers, resolution, monitor or tv, keyboard or controller etc)
Better online
Free online
Upgradability
Better visuals

And certain games I wouldnt be able to get on consoles

I care very little on graphics and not just "certain" but "a huge amount" of games i wouldnt be able to play. On the other hand, free online, better online, huge times cheaper, modding, editors, perfect compatibility, mouse&keyboard, performance, emulation, I cannot choose.
