Do you prefer PC or Console gaming and why?
PC gaming easily these days. I just prefer mouse and keyboard to a controller for most things. Obviously, some games are made for controllers and work better there but even then, I would rather play those on my PC. Part of that is ease of access. I would rather not have to switch to a console to play something. I like all my games to be in one place. I still, own a Switch and a PS4 for exclusives that I can't get on the PC but that’s all I really play on them anymore and it's far less often these days than it used to be.
