        Old consoles were purpose built hardware with things like sprite management and background layers done in hardware (<=5th gen). Sixth gen you had the PS2 with it's custom built Emotion Engine that produced graphics unheard of at the time and especially for it's price. Modern consoles are just AMD APUs with infinite DRM and an Appstore. They don't have a purpose anymore except to shekel normalgays.

      this and the games. in the PS2 and before era. most games coming out on console came out ONLY on that console. you wanted to play sonic ? buy a dreamcast, want to play resident evil ? buy a playstation, pc didn't get nearly the amount of first party support it does now. a console gave you access to a library of games you wouldn't have otherwise. now NOT having a pc restricts you greatly. my pc can play everything you have on your PS5 plus everything before it. nevermind the esports scene
      >if you like single player games. PC gives you all the games of every console gen
      >if you like multiplayer games. PC is the only real market for that.
      consoles in themselves are kind of outdated given the games and services available on PC. as you said they are appified pc's with a tiny fraction of the potential games that you have to pay to use online

        I'd like to add that games weren't exclusive because of publisher greed back then. If you wanted to release on multiple platforms back then you were basically programming the game twice.

    Value proposition. You pay for more initially but eventually you are paying less for a significantly better experience. Consoles used to be put in a disc and play and with PCs you often had to find the right solution to fix your game and the solution was on some backwater forum. Now you press a single button and the game installs itself and everything runs well, with full controller support right away in 95% of cases while on consoles you have to go through multiple menus and wait for a long install process before you hop into sub 1080p upscaled resolutions on 30 fps, maybe 60 fps if it's a last gen game. Games on PC are 50-90% cheaper and you get to play whatever you want on your PC, not just the latest selection of games. Sony is not even making games anymore while Microsoft games are on gamepass or Steam, there is no reason to play on a console anymore unless you are a Black person who cannot even install a program.

          you can use mineral oils in your case
          fish probably would survive long inside it though
          not to mention the heat pipes

          What about keeping the parts and wires in a glass case and filling the rest with water? Can that even help keep it cool? Cold water flowing around the parts etc?

            you could probably do it
            it would be pricey and a bit potential leak risk. it would just be a weird custom loop.
            keeping it clean would be the biggest issue

    new console games suck badly

      PS3 and X360 generation was the last one that made sense to have a console. Also, for 2~ years they had the best GPU while PS4 and PS5 were released GPUs that are 1/3 of the best PC can have.

    PC is an infinitely better value; it gets almost all the new releases, and can also emulate pretty much every past system.

    Consoles are for kids that have no jobs and have to beg for their parents to buy one. Adults prefer PC because cost is an non issue, especially since you can make a setup to fit your specific budget, and its versitile for stuff outside gaming, and has the largest library when gaming.

    Exclusives keep consoles relevant but Sony and MS stopped making them.

    Well, Sony PlayStation went over and became Snoy PedoStation by supporting pedophilia and child grooming organizations such as LGBTQ and Pride. That one caused Snoy to drop most of their users. They also started scamming money from people by locking away the online mode from the games they bought with a subscription, as well as removed backwards compatibility for previous console games.

    PCs are better than consoles in every aspect. The only thing consoles have ever had going for them is exclusives.

    There are barely any exclusives outside of Nintendo consoles anymore, so there's pretty much no reason to own a non-nintendo console anymore.

    it isn't. Console are still the largest demographic by far.
    However PC players have communities via discord and dedicated servers. Whereas all consoles have is a friends list and playing with randos every time. no real sense of community.

    Consoles fricked themselves over by creating the AAA model where a game takes almost a decade to make.
    Why should a consumer buy a new console when games only release at the end of its lifespan.
    PC doesn't have that problem its one continuous ecosystem with a massive library of games and if a new game is released and your PC can't handle it you can simply play on lower settings or upgrade certain parts.
    PC also just provides just more options in general you don't like steam use GOG, K+M is shit for a certain game use a controller, this game has a bug that the publisher can't/won't fix just use this fan patch.
    I could go on but you get the picture.
