Assuming a good PC...Do you buy games for consoles when there is a PC version?

For me, the only time I'd consider it is for a multiplayer title. I prefer to play with a controller, and playing a PC game with a controller is usually a handicap when everyone else is using KB+M.

If it's a bad port, I'll probably get the console version. Also depends on genre.

It depends on what game it is, release date on console vs PC, if I'm playing something else at the moment, or too busy to play anything, and the quality of the PC port.

Example, I'll be getting Monster Hunter World on PS4, but if the PC port ends up being better or equal, I'll double dip and start over on PC.

Yes all the time. Especially since I have the one x. I just buy whatever I feel like playing it on.

It really depends on what the cheaper version is.

I only buy multiplats for console when the PC port is rubbish or there is a bigger community/more friends have it on console.

Yes depending on if more of my friends/bigger community are on consoles or if I want the trophies.

This. I prefer controller so I don't want to deal with the handicap pad players face on PC. Otherwise, PC for single player.

I buy all the games that I love on console, and then later buy on PC when they get cheap, just because I don't like the idea of having the games I buy locked into the internet and not on physical media.
