    Debate whether the PC or a console is better for gaming has been going for years now. Some don't care but many are more than happy to jump into a heated discussion against their "adversaries" and defend the only good way to play a video game. These arguments have been going on way before the gaming became popular and mainstream. And, while people have been going on and off on the topic with a varying degree of excitement and enthusiasm, things really started heating up in the past couple of months.

    If you're reading this article then you've probably played a couple of games in your life and know a thing or two about this whole ordeal. You've surely also heard of the new Sony PlayStation 5 coming out that was supposed to bury PC gaming for good. Or, at least, for a long while. When the specs for the new console came out, everyone stood in shock and awe. Suddenly, every good thing about video gaming was at the average gamer's grasp. 4K resolution, dynamic lighting, incredible textures, advanced AI, and so much more is coming readily available and at a quite affordable price. While there's no official pricing yet, it's widely known that you don't have to spend thousands of dollars anymore to get all of those perks and enjoy gaming at the highest level. From breathtaking triple-A titles to hardcore sex games on JerkDolls, you'll be able to play anything with just a couple of hundred bucks.

    Suddenly, one of the strongest arguments that the consoles had against PC gamers became that much stronger. Affordable, quality gaming, in addition to exclusives, has always been one of their major selling points. Because, a good gaming PC often costs as much as two, three, or even more consoles. Naturally, a computer offers much more versatility and is suited for many different tasks but, after all, we're talking from a purely gaming perspective and many by a configuration for that alone. As a result, there's been plenty of "PC elitism" in the gaming society. Deciding on a console meant going for a cheaper solution and limiting your potential in the process. The PC comes with barely any limitations. Plenty of different video games that can be played on consoles often also end up ported on the PC but that is not always the case in the opposite direction. Then again, we come back to interesting exclusive titles that are for consoles only and one of the bigger reasons people go for these.

    Also, there's a casual approach to console gaming. You buy a TV with a big screen, get yourself a wireless joypad, comfortably place yourself on your favorite couch, and play to your heart's content. PC gamers would argue they can get joypads as well and go for the same style of gaming but we know that is usually not the case. And then, in the middle of such a heated debate, NVIDIA came out with their latest installment. Instead of splurging a couple of thousand dollars for a graphics card alone, you can now get one for more than twice as less. Not just that, but these new cards in the 3000 series offer more than twice power than the previous ones. Those sex simulator games will now offer breathtaking quality no matter how you set them up to be. You'll be able to run any title and become a professional gamer in your favorite eSport game without having to spend thousands of dollars and the everlasting conflict between gamers will continue longer.
