cheating for lulz is much easier.
keyboard/mouse control
using skype for voice chat sounds 1000x better than PSN or XBLA voice chat.
Cheating/hacking is something I dislike about PC gaming.

So true,though it's much harder to do on a console,and getting caught gets you banned from the online service.

Developers blow PC cheating/hacking/pirating way out of proportions though.

In my time as a gamer, I've met almost no cheaters. I've met about 5 cheaters during the first 700 hours of COD4 MP. I think they got some new cheats at the end though, I met more and more as time went by.

I don't remember meeting any in CODBO or BC2.

The biggest problem actually isn't FPS'es IMO, but racing games. Take any Codemasters game and look at the leaderboards. There are 1 to 10 players on every leaderboard that are at least 15 second faster than any competition. Holding a world record (I have, no BS) on one of the tracks and then having it taken away by some cheater is a crappy experience, even if the records aren't worth crap IRL.

I play PC because I'm too stubborn and too use to it to do otherwise.

PC gaming is a one per per computer affair. Console gaming has the potential for at least 2 players on console.

However, most of the games "hardcore" gamers play on consoles are one person per console. It all goes back to the same thing: playing games by yourself.

That depends on where you get your parts, for example Micro-center always has some kind of nice combo sales at good prices and so do some people @ OCN/Hard forum or even craigslist. ( compared to Newegg or a similiar retailer, you will save $100+ easily )
Why make ppl do a scavenger hunt? You can never guarantee to find a PC build for under $400 that runs games on max. I'm a PC gamer, but ppl saying they can build a powerful system for that cheap must be either buying it off the black market or just plain lucky finding deals around the world.

Well, consider that most console gamers also need a PC for emails, office applications and other things. That PC will cost them not only the price of a crappy Dell, they'll also need monitor and accessories. They could hook it up to a TV, but will the average Joe do that? No, he most likely won't. Hell, I wouldn't, then I wouldn't be able to watch TV and use the PC simultaneously.
While it is true that most folks will also need a PC, they most likely already have one. In that sense, building a new gaming PC or even an upgrade or two to said old PC wouldn't be much different than someone buying a console.

There are also smartphones, netbooks and PCs available at the workplace. Heck, I know a handful of people that only have a general purpose PC in their house these days because it's years old.

Everything else I can pretty much agree with for the most part.

Same here bro, I can't even enjoy Crysis 2 without some shaft eater ruining the game with their cheap exploits.

What?! I've met 5 cheaters on BFBC2 in the last week.

(And don't give me the standard "l2play" excuse for calling someone a cheater, it was blatantly obvious to *everyone* in the servers)

http://www.pbbans.com/mbi-latest50-bfbc2-lfb36.html 14,217 bans. 1,266 in the PAST 30 DAYS.

That said, cheaters don't ruin the experience. I get as much fun out of trolling the cheaters as they do trolling the noobs, and you can always find a better (read: admin'd) server to play on.
