Hell no. I switched from console to pc last year for the first time in 15 years and what a game changer it is.

With Playnite I got my own couch front end, I can control my pc completely with my Xbox one controller. I will ALWAYS have 60fps locked, no matter what game there is coming.

Games are a fucking bargain. On PC you will never pay 70€ again for a day 1 game. Ever.

It was also never a better time to make the switch to PC IMO:

- MS and Sony exclusives aremore and MORE coming to PC. This NEVER happend before.

- Games are becoming more and more crossplay, so I can play even MP stuff with my controller. Also my friends can still be on consoles and we can play together. Latest example is the borderlands 3 fuckery that Sony did.

- The hardware you are getting on pc never lasted longer than now because of dimishing returns.

- You never have to buy a cheap made remaster that just adds higher resolution. Just play the game on PC, even with mods if you want.

-EMULATION! ever tried F-Zero GX or BOTW in 4k? This alone is so worth it.

I've switched to PC gaming + Switch.

What would bring me back? Easy: console exclusives I want that I can't get on PC. E.g. release a Viewtiful Joe remaster and I will buy an XB / PS in a heartbeat. I've always liked what Sony / MS are doing but I just need the content.

I decided to go with the LG CX 55 inch Oled screen, atmos sound system with the xbox series x, and 5 years of gamepass > high end pc. No regrets. Hopefully I can get my hands on a PS5 soon. All about what experience you're looking for.
