Most PC gamers talk about games on Discord or Steam, while also playing them on the same machine.
Console users have to go back and forth, or fiddle with their phones.
Can consoles even run a web browser and game at the same time yet?

Also, for most PC gamers, games are just a passtime, with hardware being the hobby and main social interest. For console gamers, games are a social endeavor. The game isn't what matters, just that they can talk to their friends about it.

Another thing of note, there are way more games on pc which spreads out the userbase, I'm sure there are people out there playing games made in the 90s or something. Also, emulation of console, portable and even mobile games can help further spread the userbase out.

The thing about PC gaming is that you're on a PC while doing it, so you have full access to the internet to post wherever you want: Steam, Reddit, Facebook, official forums for a game, etc. And since a lot of PC gaming is done through Steam, Steam forums are just faster and easier to get to.

What? How's that different to PC gamers again?

I mean I agree with you, most people nowadays don't seem to care about games outside a few months for the newest AAA fad, but I wouldn't make this distinction you're trying to do - there really is no difference.

Because PC has no games.

Nah, it's because PC gamers have bad taste in general & it's not worth to have a discussion about true good games.

The only thing happening on Steam forums are a bunch of noobs asking why they can't run the game.
