PCs utterly destroy consoles. Sadly, most games are now crappy console ports, which also seriously holds back the graphics on the PCs. I mean, after 2 years, no game comes close to crysis in graphics. So I've not been playing any games for along time now.

Depends on the game:

PC: FPS, RTS but requires updates in software/hardware and sometimes it lags.

Console: you buy a game and it'll work pretty instantly. Also a lot more games are available for consoles both first and second hand.

I can say shooters are MUCH better on a PC. The only problem I have is that some of them require uber specs, which are a lot of money :(

Console, only because the games are made for the hardware and you don't have to constantly upgrade, otherwise PC.

If you get into the technical side then consoles can never beat PC gaming.

Butttt despite this consoles seem to be pretty popular so it comes down to a preference. I tend to prefer certain types of games on different formats.

Racing games, platformers and other arcade-style games I'd probably have on console. Wipeout HD is pretty awesome on PS3, lol.

RPGs and MMOs definitely remain in the PC domain for me. I play World of Warcraft and it would be entirely impractical to play on a console control pad (hence why Blizzard have never released it for consoles).

Strategy games (your Command & Conquer or SimCity type games) again should stay on PC. Although recently EA seem to be butchering the genre to make them easier to play on consoles. The older ones you definitely have an advantage with keyboard and mouse.

FPS games (Call of Duty, etcetera) are better on PC. However due to the popularity of consoles I am forced to get Call of Duty 4 on Xbox 360 because all my friends play it on that. Infidels. :P

Not to say I'm totally against consoles though. Over the years I've had:
Master System II, GameBoy, PS1, PS2, GameCube, PS3, DS, Xbox 360.

Consoles are fun, but I always prefer PC gaming for the serious stuff. ;)

I think that both are ok to play but I think that it depends on the game and on the pc's memory ^^!
