I think consoles are doing a lot of damage to pc gaming. they usually result in poor, half hearted ports to pc, dumbed down options which dont let us take advantage of the superior pc hardware, dumbed down games, too. having seen a lot of games on tablets, i hope the pc doesnt go the way of tablets. using a s*itty touch screen for certain types of games makes them useless. mouse and keyboard forever !
Consoles are OK for action type games, but PC will always dominate strategy games. Especially those that require managing resources/ economy.
What I have never understood, is why there is never a controller developed for a PC that can deliver the versatility and ease of use of most console controllers. That would put PC back on top of gaming with a versatility that no console could ever match.
