Console saved gaming for me.
The revelation came about when I tried to play HL2 on my Core 2 rig at the time and my Soundblaster Live HD drivers decided not to play along with DirectX/Steam/Valve/whatever weirdo driver stuff I had installed at the time and the game crashed every single time with the sound looping continuously at one particular level.
That was the last PC game I ever bought ... completed HL2 eventually when I got the Orange box for the Xbox.
These days nothing beats just popping in a CD and expecting that it will work without trolling the net for the latest optimized AMD/Nvidia drivers.
My worst case scenario is that the Xbox will RROD while playing (3 times so far in the last 4 years) which I can live with.
