fps's are hard to play on consoles because of the little analog sticks, the mouse is much easier to use.

I like pc gaming for the reason that I like using a keyboard and mose better than a controller also you don't have to pay for some online subscription to play online with pc games for the most part. Also a good high end pc will last though 2 generations of consoles

I've got such a beast computer I'm just about to sell my 360 for a Wii.

I only really play games for the multiplayer, and sadly the console doesn't give the same experience as a PC.

Reasons why?
-Using Ventrilo/teamspeak to be in contact with all your clanmates/friends makes a huge difference, you are never alone.
-Never ending list of maps
-Complete Modifications (hl2 mods)
-Admins.. perma-ban those idiots.
-Keyboard/Mouse
-Plus, you have a PC, you can do about anything.

Downside: Price.
