But what I should do is try to do opinions on myself, not try copying other peoples and be a bandwagon freak which I admit because I try too hard at being a YouTube style celebrity on the forums which does not work well for this website.
And that link is very black and white and that one thing I can not stand about the PC Master Race community.
Many of these PC building enthusiast sites, including PC Master Race community are echo chambers and generally are a gang of bro's all sharing the same sentiments. Different opinion? Be prepared for the downvote brigade! I am a PC building enthusiast and have an online reputation over there and many other sites dedicated to the craft. While these are mostly decent folks enjoying their hobby, several are not really gamers either. Their priorities lie elsewhere. Visit the forums in 2020 when the PS5 comes out, there will be a flurry of activity. When the Xbox One X came out, within 3 months many members had upgraded their builds so that they can beat the Xbox. LOL. I know of several people that only have around 20 of the classic "benchmarking" titles in their Steam Account. They are not gamers when games serve only one purpose - as a frame rate test for their hardware. The opinion of a PC builder/enthusiast, particularly one who considers the nexus of his/her hobby as being overclocking with innovative liquid cooling or hitting 1% benchmarks, then take their console gaming opinion with a large grain of salt. Taking stock of their console opinions would be like asking a hungry Lion for his opinion on a salad or meat dish for dinner.
As for you, PC's outperforming consoles should not be a factor in enjoying consoles. Ignore hardware, does not matter. When I say hardware, I mean innards of the console, not the peripherals like waggle controls etc... What is more interesting is how games have evolved with the hardware. This is where Nintendo's old school charm but innovative use of hardware with gaming puts them above most of the AAA companies who churn out the same crap year after year. Assassin's Creed, dang, I hope they do not release another game for years, maybe ever. I have had my bellyful of that.
