They have their ups and downs.
PC is good for serious gaming, and I think serious goes hand in hand with a more mature audience, also on PC its mainly online multiplayer. So for example, on PC we are working hard together as a team (sometimes) to complete a goal,
However on the other hand consoles are good to just casually game.
I love getting into my games and trying hard to win online,
But I also loved chilling in my bed playing fable 2 and borderlands until ungodly hours in the morning, casually.
If I had to choose though, PC definately gets it. I sold my console infact.
As for the graphics, yeah graphics can be amazing on PC but they are only icing on the cake (though boy do I love icing)
The core fundamentals seem to differ significantly between PC and console - for example on PC we are much closer to our screens so we are much more alert, and we have unmatched precision with our mice, so online shooting games are of course going to be a lot more fast paced and intense. I am sure if some of my colleagues who game on consoles were to watch me play a PC game, they would assume I had an aimbot or something, most people dont understand how fast you can snap onto a target, and that changes gameplay significantly. So apart from graphics, they have their ups and downs.
Besides, who cares if your graphics arent that great on a console, your generally sitting too far away from the TV to notice the jaggies from lack of anti aliasing or the blurriness from lack of high resolution textures or anisotropic filtering, console gaming is more about casual fun.
