I can't get on with a controller due to partial paralysis in my right arm,
I'm okay for racing games like Gran Turismo but using my right hand
for first person shooters is a mess as the having no sense of touch
means I struggle when it comes to keeping my fingers on the right
button and trying to move from button to button is messy as I have
to look at my hand to get the right button making me too slow hence
the lack of interest in multiplayer titles.

You've vaguely given some info on your accident, making you more of
an indoor person but I wasn't aware of the exact details as to what or
how it happened. That certainly sucks on having difficulty with a mouse
and getting a good feel for control. Twisting one's wrist to the left and
placing a hand flat on an object is not a natural position and requires
more strain than how a hand rests naturally. With that in mind, rather
than using a horizontal mouse like most of us do, have you considered
trying a vertical mouse? The hand rests more naturally on it, and the
tactile control of clasping and using your fingers is a lot easier and more
comfortable. They aren't very expensive and you may find it the solution
to your difficulty with a regular mouse. Here's a link to show the design:

I absolutely hate consoles with a burning passion these days.

You've elaborated on your deep, burning passionate hate for both
Intel & Nvidia, so please don't spare us your story on Console Games.

I hate Intel's lying scummy POS higher ups. Not their engineers. And I dont hate Nvidia near as much as that, even if their G-Sync and anti-open source stances are dangerous to PC Gaming long term. Mostly I am salty on their stifling of game design when they bought PhysX.

Conslows are an anti-art, anti-consumer market model that makes no sense in the current days.

They cost more long term. They do less. They harm modding. They harm backwards compatibility. Nintendo and Sony bully developers at time. All consoles are good for, is to test small arms ballistics. Their time of good for gaming ability... ended in 2000.

"
My Argument: Game consoles are worthless thus not worth buying, unless you absolutely can't refrain from their exclusives and cannot emulate them. But I will also debate the value of some of these exclusives, particularly the ones whose main focus is on emulating cinema above all else, to the point where I will suggest people defending these need more experience with other kinds of games and perhaps need to watch more movies and TV and after doing so, will no longer strongly argue in their favor.

And stating an obvious but always overlooked fact, consoles (proprietary systems that can't be upgraded and have little to no backwards compatibility) are of course objectively bad for the industry

Most anti-PC gaming/pro-console arguments I see are based on falsehoods, so I suggest reading this (lots of facts and more specific arguments in there) to avoid doing so.

And some things to note, I was a console gamer from 1999-2007, though I still played a few console exclusives after 2007 like the first three Uncharted games, Gran Turismo 5, and Forza 4 (these are the only ones I played extensively after 2007).

Not an argument, but an objective fact often ignored and I want to see commented on: Consoles are objectively damaging and limiting to the gaming industry, due to them causing there to be multiple proprietary systems, none of which can be upgraded, and due to their lack of backwards compatibility, lack of modding and game content creation, tyrannical multiplayer model in which players have no control over dedicated servers so MP games can and will get shut down forcing you to abandon the game's multiplayer, and general lack of functionality (e.g. device compatibility). What do you pro-console gamers have to say about this?

So, let the debate begin.

Proposed value of consoles so far by members in this thread:

Nothing new since these are really the only things you can point to.

Out of the box apples to apples performance in favor of the XBOX One X, without any regards to long term viability and how quickly this will change, and without consideration of the fact that PC isn't limited to apples to apples performance due to the option to select different resolutions and graphics settings.

Plug-and-play nature of the consoles. There are pre-built PCs, but as the article linked above states, they are indeed overpriced."

This is the article:
https://www.gnd-tech.com/content/876-Console-Gaming-to-PC-Gaming-FAQ

I am yet to see a console gamer manage to defend consoles on any moral or long term manner. The most they can say is that... they used to be good for gaming. Or that they cost less if you buy it second hand, a few years after release and play all your games second hand and resell them (which is as efficient for the industry as piracy...). And id argue even then it costs more long term.

My last console was a PS2 but the games I enjoyed were few and far between, I can't get on with a controller due to partial paralysis in my right arm, I'm okay for racing games like Gran Turismo but using my right hand for first person shooters is a mess as the having no sense of touch means I struggle when it comes to keeping my fingers on the right button and trying to move from button to button is messy as I have to look at my hand to get the right button making me too slow hence the lack of interest in multiplayer titles.

I still have my PS1 & PS2 plus all the games boxed up in the attic, I can't see me ever using them again but maybe my grandkids grandkids will find them one day and make a small fortune on what will then hopefully be Retro toys that are worth a few quid.
They may even enjoy using them themselves, I remember finding an old reel to reel player with loads of reels in the attic as a kid, It was a standalone model that projected the picture onto the bedroom wall there was no audio but there was one reel with a Thunderbirds movie on it. Sadly it was accidentally left behind when we moved house in the 80's, Anyway I've gone a bit off track sorry.

I think Microsoft messed up a bit when they started selling Xbox games in the Windows store for the PC as for me that means if I was to buy a console it wouldn't be an Xbox. That said they may change their tune now the new Xbox Scorpio's out, That's if it sells well, I was hoping to get some Halo FPS titles on PC as I've never played it.

I've tried to get others to start a thread on this. I felt compelled to go
ahead and do this ( not that I'm a major fan of this medium ) since it
seems people post about this subject but they are lost among all the
various threads they appear on. Hopefully they will converge here.
