Well

Cheaper prices for games with and without sales, better support from manufacturers, superior controls, ability to do what I WANT to with my hardware, also ability to use pretty much whatever console controller I want (should I want too.) and just an all around better experience for me.

I just can't go back to consoles now after years of abuse from SONY and Microsoft on the console side of things. I just can't do it anymore.

So you should get a console that has the most games that YOU!!! like dont listen to fans of any company and switch between it and your rig.

P.S: its the game play that matters the most.
I fixed that for you, that's just blatant ignorance on your part. You have all those genres on the PC available to you too.

Im not here to rant, I just need some level headed person to advise ne whether or not to make a switch before I upgrade again

Well, I've never felt the need to, but you can get a PS3 for under $200, and heck, you can get a used 360 for like $100 so if you really want to there is no reason you can't do both.

If you don't mind the difference in graphics and like the ease of a console go for it
I've only just come back to pc gaming though and slowly upgrading my rig
My vote is pc
