I think I spent a good 5 minutes trying to watch that through from the start, but hey, it was worth it. Now I don't own a console, so what's all the fuss about. Heck, why doesn't everyone just buy a decent computer instead...
Because it's nice to buy a piece of gaming hardware that lets you play every game that comes out for it, unlike some PC games that require you to either buy a new computer or build your own. Sure, some people find building their own computers fun, but I'd rather just buy something that's ready to play any game I can get for it right out of the box.
Also because inviting a friend(s) over and playing games on one big screen can be a lot nicer than having four people huddled over their own screen. Consoles are allow multiplayer gaming to be a much more social experience (well, provided they allow local multiplayer, unlike many newer games that refuse to implement it). It's also nice to be able to play games from the couch, rather than planting your face in your monitor at a table. Yes, I'm sure this stuff can be set up on a PC, but it's kind of a shitty deal if a gaming platform doesn't allow for that kind of functionality without you having to screw around with it.
Yeah, great, PC's are technologically superior. That doesn't mean the gaming experience is any better. I'll compare it to a new clothes iron my mom got recently. The old one broke, so it had to be replaced. The new one has five different heat levels, and a slider to adjust how much steam jets out (when you hit the steam button). Maybe some people who are more meticulous with their clothes will like these features, because they like to have different heat levels for different fabrics. But for the average customer, none of this shit matters. If I need to iron something, I just plug it in, put the heat on the highest level (because I know how not to set my clothes on fire), and iron my clothes. I don't touch the steam slider, and I don't need the three automatic shutoff measures (because I know how to unplug an iron).
I'm not even going to TL;DR this one, just read it.
