I used to buy 'filler games' but I try to avoid it now. I've got a huge list of playable games on Steam and I go finish something I've been putting off or replay something I've really liked when I wait for a release to give me something new to play. I've been good about not buying small filler titles that aren't more than of minor interest to me for a few years now.

I think most games are better on the PC, it's just having the money to build a good gaming computer and having the room to keep one too. The mods on GTA, Fallout and Elder Scrolls are the best

I agree, but in all honesty if you can afford a console you can afford a better PC than that console. You might have to spend an extra month or two saving up for the initial cost, but what you'll get will last longer, play more games, and have more uses outside of gaming. You've only got to outdo a console's hardware once, once you're over that hump it's permanently better than that console until it is replaced by the next console. Even when that happens you'll probably be able to upgrade the same PC for less than the cost of the new console and still come out on top for the next cycle as well.

The idea that consoles are cheaper than PCs is a myth. The up front cost of the box itself is less, but if you factor in the other expenses involved and the higher price of games it's actually more expensive to own a console than a decent gaming PC.

Note that I'm not talking about an Uber rig with 3GPUs and a 4.5ghz CPU here. Something that can outperform the consoles [even the as yet to be released 'next gen'] isn't that expensive.

Space might be an issue, maybe. Consoles have a pretty wide footprint. They tend to not be very tall, but for the most part a decent PC doesn't have that much more of a footprint than a console does. An uber rig with a huge custom case and all sorts of cooling is another story, but a basic gaming PC with enough hardware to outperform a console isn't going to be that large really.

The cost myth is one if the biggest lies the console manufacturers rely on. It's entirely not true. It's true not everyone can afford a brand new custom PC with pimped out cooling, several GPUs, a stupidly powerful processor, and terabites worth of storage, but you don't need that to beat a console's hardware. They aren't nearly that good, and a well built mid grade PC will outperform even PS4 and Xbox 1 pretty handily if the buyer just takes the time to research what they are getting and doesn't just buy something off the shelf at Best Buy or Walmart.

Playing Outlast at the moment.

I love it. And it is probably the scariest thing I have ever played/seen.

I'll probably be checking that out myself. However, at the moment I've got other games to play plus Amnesia A Machine For Pigs preordered, so I'm holding off.

Looks decent and it's getting mostly good reviews, so I'm pretty sure I'll pick it up later. I like survival horror games, and I've been caught by a 'jump' here and there, but I really don't find games to be scary. Being startled for a moment isn't the same as being scared, and I've never been frightened by games or movies at all. I do enjoy the genre despite that.

I've got Amnesia pre-ordered too. I'm hoping to have Outlast finished soon.

No, especially if you didn't care for Fear 2. Fear 3 is the weakest game in the series.
