Gog.com is great just got Papers, Please from them and they threw in a bunch of free titles including The Witcher. With as big as games are getting I prefer them on a platform that can be patched. So I wait a few years for the AAAs to be modded and patched by their communities and play 'em on the pc. Random Indy titles and established companies that don`t release buggy games are for the console. Sorry, bethesda, you will always have a place in my heart and on my pc. Though I am looking forward to not playing ESO for the first six months after release.

I prefer retro games on my computer

Just in case you don't know about it, I`ll mention gog.com

Originally "good old games", they now sell an increasing number of new games (mostly indie, but the same company that owns gog.com also owns a game dev studio and sell their games through gog.com) but are still mainly about old games. They bundle them with an emulator and write a combined install, so you just have to install as usual and it`ll run on modern OSes. Prices start from $6, but there are sales on most of the time and prices start from $2 in the sales.

They have a firm policy of no DRM of any kind, ever, so there`s nothing to inconvenience legitimate customers. I`ve bought new games from them just because of that policy, games I haven`t even played.

In fact, the only real argument I can think of against PC gaming is the lack of resale value on modern games. Most modern PC games can't be resold at all because they have one-shot activation and of course digital versions (which is the norm for PC games now, mainly Steam) can`t be resold at all.

Well, that and the fact that games companies screw customers on digital pricing, but that won`t be any different on consoles. They can quadruple their profits by selling at the same price, so they do.

In terms of cost, the difference isn't all that much. PCs have a higher hardware cost because they`re not sold at a loss, but they have a lower normal game cost because they don`t include a cut for the PC maker (console games include a cut for the console maker, which is why they can sell the consoles at no profit or even at a loss).

and still require a disk to be in the tray, even after trying to make a disk image, so why bother?

Use noCD cracks if you want to play games bought on disc without the disc.

Or just buy the game digitally if it really bothers you to change discs.

Can you play console games bought on disc without the disc?
