Thanks for the fix on the article.
I don't consider nonsense to NOT but a PC exclusively to play games, or as a secondary function:
- There is no AAA exclusive games for PC since 2010 except Half-Life Alyx which requires a VR Set.
- It became a third-place platform, exclusives hit consoles first. Few titles hit the PC platform on launch day, and most are clearly a second thought port (like Horizon: Zero Dawn, Dark Souls, or Nier: Automata).
- The amount to pay for a gaming PC doesn't correlates directly with the amount of exclusives demanding games in the platform.
- The amount of indie games is high, but these kind of titles don't require a (relatively) expensive gaming PC, or a high end laptop.
Considering the investment on a console (around $500), you have already have a greater experience for a fraction of the cost of a gaming PC, let alone the setup.
A shame that playing FPS titles on console is still a sub-par experience without a mouse and keyboard, but the Steam Deck implementation of pointing-device gives me hope.
